you mean a barrel life ? an average TT can sustain about 3-4000 rounds after that it will loose its accuracy.

Chinese and Russian pistols have chrome lined barrels.they can handle 10-20K rounds easily.may be u need other parts to replace before such round count.

The chrome barrel might take some tens of thousands of round but none of my chinese or russian tts have gone beyond 1823 rounds. The slide and parts kind of start rattling after a 700 rounds. I've had a major slide failure in my Chinese after 1823 rounds.

Original russian tt were made before mid fifties as the makarov replaced it& if they are still working, do your math & calculate its life

Most of the TTs wouldnt have fired more than 500 rounds through them. But again there might be some out there who've probably fired hundreds & thousands but those would be few. We are discussing things with more of a generalized approach.

Muzzel life also depends on type of ammo and cleaning, average life could be 3600 rounds

@Silent Killer..

I think this is the correct approach.. 3600.


cf-98 also gives 3000 rounds muzzle life.

Sirs,

I have spoken to several gunsmiths on this issue and all of them said that the Russian TTs do not have chromed barrels.
