Those currently imported Polish Toks have a safety added, the one here with capture paperwork does not have one. To a collector of Polish arms or Nam bringbacks it is a very desirable item as there are very few in country that do not have the safety or import marks let alone with paperwordk from Nam. I have no doubt at auction it woudl push $800 heck a Chinese or Russian Tok would and the Polish are very scarce compared to Russian non imports.
All I can say is WOW !!!!!!

Look for yourselves if you want to.
The SKS did OK also for a "modified" gun.

That is a more then I thought but not that surprising given that I have never seen a non import Polish Tok let alone a Papered Nam bringback one.
FWIW I bought a nam papered ugly missmatched CHinese Tok this last weekend for $200. I thought that a steal.
Tokarov pistol with all three documents
some years ago I sold a tokarev pistol with the capture, transfer, and ship to documents for $700. Advertised on one of the auction sites.
I had bought it and a Krag Norwegian "short" rifle from an individual in the early 1980's. He wanted to sell the both of them and I wanted the Krag.
Surprised me when the folded papers came out of the "cut-down" holster the pistol came with.
Didn't care much for the Tok then, appreciated the sale price 25 years later when business was poor and I was too.
[Still have the Norwegian Krag!]
and its a VC capture and that will bring more than one from Classic Arms. However, without papers, its a used old TOK and nothing more. Granted, lack of import marks can bring its price upwards.
I have a Polish Tokarev from some years back - what an awful safety they added. The first time I took it apart I lost the tiny ball under the safety lever. It came with a "right-hand grip" on the one side. I'm left-handed and of course the ad picture didn't show that.
