Hey guys! So I was doing some reading for ****s and giggles. Anyway, I noticed that the old Russian 7.62x23 round has a lot of similar dimensions to 9mm. Specifically, that the size of the brass at the base is the same size. I am curious if anyone has made or tried to modify either a G19 or some other Glock handgun to fire this caliber?

Tokarev is too long to fit in even a G20 mag.

Did you happen to notice yet that it is 7.62x25, not the "23" you have locked up on?

Want a bottleneck? Why not propose the wildly-popular 7.65x21mm Parabellum or the universally-acclaimed 8x22mm Nambu?

Seriously...If one wants to do serious work with the most outstanding weapons-service auto-pistol round that has ever made it to production, just get a 357SIG G31, G32, or G33. It is no coincidence with its excellent characteristics that it too is a bottleneck round.

The 7.62x25 Tokarev is an interesting round for military use as a FMJ. The service pistols made for it (TT-33, Type 54, Vz-52, etc.) have been imported in large quantities. There will never be a demand for Glocks in this caliber, which is more than a little unsuitable for modern personal defense.

Dumb question - why would you want to do that?

You could probably chamber one for a .30 Luger round AKA 7.65x21 It's OAL is only 0.006 longer than the 9x19.

I am not interested in doing it personally just wanting to figure out if you can do it.

As an aside there are at least two variations of that round that I am aware of. The first is the one some of you all cited which is the latter version with a longer FMJ bullet (7.62x25). The older and more directly derived version from the 7.62 Mauser is the 7.62x23 with a Jacketed Flat-nosed bullet. Which you can find listed in some old Bulgarian and other Soviet Block surplus stockpiles.
