The Tokarev TT-33 is a Russian semi-automatic pistol chambered in 7.62x25mm with an 8 round magazine and was produced at the Tula Arsenal from 1933. It reputably has the ability to pierce kevlar armor, since some rounds developed for it have a muzzle velocity of 1600+fps; no mean feat for a small .30cal projectile.
Also known as "The Soviet Browning" for its similarity of looks to the FN Browning 1903 model.
