CZ-52.
7.62x25 Tokarev round.

You know I think I paid $99 for mine about 5 years ago :P. Was the first pistol I bought with my C&R license. It's been reliable as a gun comes for me, and decently accurate. A bit odd though. No slide release - Euro-style mag catch instead of release button. The grips tend to "wobble" a tad bit with the default setup (I put on a Hogue slip-on grip on mine which keeps them tight and in place).

Overall, definitely a fun range toy, but not really a good utility pistol IMHO. If you want something more practical off the surplus market right now - grab a CZ-82.

yup, I always say that until I get more cash lol

on topic: I had two chromed CZ-52 that I just sold. Great guns, very reliable, fun to shoot. However I could never consider them series SD weapons due to how unergonomic they are. Now I am sitting on a pile of 7.62x25....guess I will have to buy a PPSH.

When (notice I said when and not if) you purchase a CZ-52, do yourself a favor and go ahead and order a replacement extractor and pin (spring too, maybe, I don't recall). Mine shot off within a few dozen rounds.

Might as well be ready to take a file to the edges of the trigger. They're kind of sharp. A little file work and a little cold blue and the trigger is much friendlier.

The pistol is quite accurate, and the 7.62x25 is a very fun round to shoot. Nice and lively. :)

I give you the OK to get it. Hell, get two! If your wife yells at you, you have my permission to tell her I OK'd it.

The cash is just worthless paper backed by nothing but debt...get rid of it if you have found some sucker that will give you a gun for it!!!

You are not buying guns - you are investing in the future. Or, in the case of the Cz 52, you are investing in a rare commodity, a piece of history that will only go up in price over time, as they are not made anymore.
It's all how you write the paperwork...

It always starts innocently enough. You know, drawing pictures in class when you're supposed to be doing math. Then, the older boys showing you glossy color photos on the school yard. Then lusting after the .22 your older brother got for Christmas.

It's all downhill from there!

I almost bought one of those at a guns how a few weeks ago, looked like new, $219 equipped like the one in the picture. I passed on it and bought a couple of others but the price of 7.62x25 ammo keeps me looking at them!

That is pretty sound advice right there.

Sterling Colefire Magnum 7.62X39

What is that?

rogertc1
February 6, 2010, 05:03 PM
Here it is...kinda a neat pistol ya think? 7.69X25 is cheap right now. I bought a few thousand. Also the ballance is great and trigger pull 1/4" take up and 5-6lbs pull. Wish you had one? Centerfire Systems has them. They are HOT. Buy while you can.

I did the same thing.... "I am done buying for a while."

well... bought a puma 92 a couple weeks ago, sold an AR at a gun show last weekend and bought a 686 and a charter undercover... then i could not help but get a Star PD today... lets see if I can stick to it this time.

my name is steven and i am an addict.

Roger, you're just not trying very hard. A 7.62x45 and a 25acp...that's the opposite of trying hard. :D

Go ahead and call me a liar.

I deserve it.

Stupid thing is nice.

And then someone offered me a HP hi power for 600.

Waiting for pics for it yet.

I wouldn't be too tempted to buy the CZ52...I've owned two of them, they tease you from afar but once you buy one its like a mirage and you realize the beautiful woman in the picture is an ugly old hag up close.

Gritty, gritty, gritty trigger.
Brittle firing pin almost certain to snap on you in a short amount of time
Big and heavy and not particularly well designed ergonomically
European style magazine release is a pain in the rear

Its just not that fun of a gun...even when it was cheap (I got my first one for $99.99). If you want to shoot the extremely affordable 7.62x25mm round then pick yourself up a Tokarev TT33, there's a gun that delivers all the goods.
