Hey everybody, I got a(nother) Chinese Tokarev recently and took it out to the range, where I encountered an issue with the slide not going fully into battery, and getting hung up while closing. If I gave it a slap it would go into battery and function as normal. I tried this with different magazines and different ammo, and the problem persisted. What's strange is that when I first got this gun, I took it apart and cleaned it (as I do with all milsurps I get) and I didn't have any issues then. Even with no magazine in the gun and an empty chamber, the slide hangs up, and it's extremely difficult to pull it all the way back, but if I give it a little push forward it goes. (Notice that the hammer is fully cocked, I know Tokarevs can be tough to rack with the hammer down but I fully cocked the hammer and still get this problem. The photos demonstrate this, taken with the gun completely empty. I've tried taking it apart, cleaning it, and lubricating it a few times with no change. A couple other things I notice is that the slide stop lever has a little bit of wiggle, but otherwise functions exactly as it should. Also, when the hammer is pulled back to half-cock, there is a noticeable *ding* sound that it makes, which I found out comes from the sear spring making contact with some part of the frame. Not sure if either of those things I mentioned are related to my problem but at this point I'm willing to take any advice y'all can give. Tokarevs are pretty similar to 1911s in their setup so maybe some knowledge there would be useful as well. Thanks!
