Physical Description

The Type 54 was first adopted in 1951 and produced in Shenyang's Factory 66 as the improved version of the Type 51 (Chinese copy of the TT-33) using both Russian and Chinese-made parts after the Korean War. In 1954, after approximately 250,000 pistols were manufactured, the designation was changed to Type 54 and the pistol used exclusively indigenous components. This type of pistol is commonly available in 7.62 x 25 mm caliber, although some variants have been made in 9 x 19 mm Parabellum.
