Well i have a chinese TT that i bought few months back. It is not having the regular 66 norinco marking nor the Type-54 designation. Instead it has a marking 636 with the the designation M20. It is orignal but i am confused whether it is norinco TT or polytech. Need Expert opinion on this

It is 100% Norinco.M20 the most interesting variation. They were identical to T54, but were marked M20 on tope of the slide. These were made for supplying various communist insurgencies, national liberation fronts, and Viet Nam troops. It has no Chinese markings, so the the source of supplier can be denied when the weapons are cought in embarrassed situations. There are three Mxx weapons: M20: Type 54 Tokarev pistol; M21: Type 56 semi-auto rifle (SKS), and M22 (Type 56 assualt rifles, aka AK47).

well balazona one thing that i wanted to ask is that are chinese TT barrel chrome plated and does the same chrome plating goes for Type-56 rifle and NP-42 pistols............... well some people often get me confused by saying that they are not good in barrel metullurgy techniques

That is cheap for a 30 pistol.

The import cost of TT is ~90$

Those ppl r 100% wrong.Chinese use high class steel for their firearms.it is usually 5100 steel.
even Colt uses 4100 or 4150 steel for 1911A1 pistols.

so this means that i should go for the chinese Type-56-2 that is being offered to me for 55000 here in peshawar because the chrome plating factor on chinese barrels was holding me back from buying the type-56 because many people here told me that chinese barrels are not good in accuracy because of not having chrome plating on barrels

lol,those ppl r living in fools heaven.all chinese rifles and pistols have chrome lined barrels.and it is major concept that chrome lined barrels r not very accurate.but it is still a myth.
and i assure u that chinese type 5 rifle's barrel is good for 55,000 rounds easily.
