Went to my Local Swap meet, usual tables of beat up shotguns, SNS's and rifles I cant afford. and then browsing a table in the back of the event, I spot a Beautiful 1954 CZ52 complete with holster and cleaning rod. Didn't have a tag on it so I asked the guy about It, knowing exactly what it was, playing the dumb kid role "Its an old Czech army pistol, shoots a 7.62 bullet thats just way too expensive and its too big for concealed carry." I asked the price and he told me to make an offer "$95" I lowballed, hoping to get a steal. "$120 and its yours" said the old man. It took all I had to keep from smiling as I paid the guy and got the hell out of there and did a little dance as I rounded the corner and bought 50 rounds of new ammo for $10(swap prices on ammo are ridiculous)

Never re-arsenaled, stamped "rid" for military service and fairly low serial numbered, low 12000's Only had one magazine, and I cant find any vendors selling them by themselves, I'd like to know where to get some. But for everyone waiting, here is the money shot.

I don't have one but I have shot one.

Don't have to hit anything with this pistol! The muzzle blast will scare off anything or anybody in front of it!

Seriously, I was impressed with my buddys CZ 52. Shot great.

Also mine doesn't have import markings from century or any of the other importers on it, is this strange? And also, does any one know people that still sell 9mm barrels for it? while tok ammo is cheap, 9mm is readily available and non-corrosive.
