    Vietnam Bringback Chinese Type 54 with Papers!

    Hello all.

    I was visiting some family these weekend and ran across this in one of my old stomping ground shops.

    The seller wanted $1,500 for it. From my quick research it seems like that's a "good" deal...but since I collect US stuff and couldn't make money, I passed. I'd be happy to pass on his information though if anyone is interested.

    No affiliation, I just asked if he'd be OK with me posting some pics and told him I'd point any interested parties his way in return for sharing. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    I see quite a few WWII papered bringbacks but Vietnam stuff seems pretty uncommon.

    Enjoy!

    A very nice pistol, but bit on the high-side. But the good news is it's about 2500 spots lower than mine, so it kind of confirms that I also have a legit "bring-back".

    I think it's nostalgic value he's declaring. I doubt anyone will pay that for a $100 pistol...but hard to say.

    A $100 pistol??? Uh, for a Tokarev without an added safety you'll probably have to add a "0" to your estimate.

    Maybe in the US...but not here. They're just bangers here.

    The paperwork is the real deal. Was printed on that flimsy paper like the old copyset carbon forms.

    sweet pistol. Back in 1979 I got a type 53 Mosin Nagant Vietnam Bring back from a Seabee buddy who was the one who brought it back. I wasn't a collector and didn't know to ask for the bring back papers. kick myself every day.
