One homely pistol was the Tokarev, but beauty is as beauty does. Unfortunately, this beauty did not do it for us, despite its fine exterior workmanship.

The inside of the Tokarev M70A was relatively straightforward. One trick was a hinged rod within the recoil spring so you can get it back into place. It still was not all that easy to do. The insides of the gun were not very well deburred.
The sights on the Tokarev were pretty good. The front was dovetailed into a small raised ramp, and serrations on the slide cut the glare somewhat.
This spring clip on the Tok's right side is the key to getting the pistol apart. Press it rearward to free the forward crosspin, and it all comes apart.
