Chinese Tokarev Serial Number
I have a Chinese Type 4 Tokarev, 7.62x25. I want to determine its date of manufacture. Its serial number is 29019801. Note that the final "1" seem to be stamped in deeper than the other numbers, but I assume its part of the serial number (there's no space and I don't know what else it could be). With this eight digit number, the "29" would mean its date of manufacture is 1982 (taking 1953 and adding 29). Is that right? (I bought the gun C&R. It's listed by ATF as C&R, so I think that means it's C&R even though its under 50 years old. Thanks.
