    I hope they do get me a good one. I have been looking at getting one for a long time. They are starting to go out of stock everywhere, figured I had better jump before they are all gone.

    I'll let you know on the grips if I decide to go that route. Thanks.

    Also ordered 150 rounds of ammo to go with it.

    I have both a C&R and new production Yugo Tok's, plus Romanian and Polish Tok's. IIRC the Yugo's hold one more rd than the others and takes a different mag. I did not like the
    add on safety they put in the C&R Yugo to import it. I had problems with it and took it out. Now I have a hole in the frame they drilled to put it in. Once the safety was removed
    it worked great. IIRC correctly the Romanian and Polish add on safeties were in a different location and much better quality. Hopefully you won't have an issue with
    the import safety, if you do it is easy to remove. In short, mine would not function with the cheap safety they put in it to meet import requirements, so it came out.

    Yup, the M57 holds 9 rounds with a longer mag and grip. I hope I don't have the safety issues as I have heard this about them before. If I do have to take it out, I will get aftermarket grips that cover the hole that is left.

    Yea, I picked up extra mags for both the Romanian and Polish Toks and the two Yugo Toks. They are different and won't cross fit. When I had my problems with the safety I did some
    research and found I was not the only one. IIRC the new Yugo Tok safety was better installed as it came from the factory. It is raining this morning so maybe I will dig out the the
    the container I have them and some other's in and take a picture to show the difference. I have not had any of them out in a long while. I had planned on filling the hole, but
    never got around to it. BTW my safety would lock the slide open at times even when it was off.

    I am hoping for no safety problems, but we will see.

    Would love to see some pics!

    Will these fit well in a full size auto holster? I have a couple of spares.

    It doesn't come with holster? Use to get original holster with spare mag slot with them.

    Not any more. Pistol and one mag is all. That is everywhere they are still available I think..
