    I'm thinking too small to import.

    Yup, too small and not enough "features" to get sufficient BATF import points.

    HOWEVER, if you really like it, it is just a tarted up CZ45 which was made in vast numbers and imported here for years. I have one and it is a very nice little pistol, if a .25 will get you by. Check the advertisements and sale sites.

    Of course you can't buy this here in the U.S. This is obviously a cheap, "Saturday Night Special" that is evil. Merely owning one of these pistols will make you rob liquor stores and mug little old ladies. I'm so happy my government is protecting me. :barf:

    Well, let's look at the specifications - -

    Dr.Rob makes a very good point. It may well be unimportable, thanks to the provisions of GCA 1968. Unfortunately, THAT law did NOT sunset. :(

    If this little pistola is from CZ, I'll stipulate it must be well made and reliable.

    Working out the calculator a bit, it appears to me that weight, 309 grams, equals very close to 10.8 ounces. Eight rounds of .25 ACP?

    How is the CZ92 better than, say, the Kel Tec P32? Slightly higher and wider, 2/10" shorter, three ounces heavier, and 8 .25 ACP vs. 7+1 of .32 ACP. And, just for grins, toss in the KT P3AT specs for comparison - -

    CZ92 (From the CZ site)
    Caliber: 6,35 mm Browning (.25 Auto)
    Magazine capacity 8
    Overall length 125,5 mm
    Barrel length 64 mm
    Height 94,5 mm
    Width 24,2 mm
    Weight 309 g

    KT P32 (From the Kel Tec web site)
    Technical Specifications
    Calibers: .32 AUTO
    Weight unloaded. 6.6 oz. 186g
    Loaded magazine 2.8 oz. 81g
    Length 5.1" 129mm
    Height 3.5" 89mm
    Width .75" 19mm
    Barrel Length 2.7" 68mm
    Sight radius 3.8" 96mm
    Muzzle energy max 200ftlbs 240J
    Capacity 7+1 rounds

    KT P3AT (From the Kel Tec web site)
    Caliber: .380 AUTO
    Weight unloaded: 7.2 oz
    Loaded magazine: 2.8 oz
    Length: 5.2"
    Height: 3.5"
    Width: .77"
    Sight radius: 3.8"
    Muzzle energy max: 250ftlbs
    Capacity: 6+1 rounds
    Trigger pull: 5 lbs

    Friends, I'll bet it is indeed a COOL GUN - I just wonder if it's an improvement on what we already can easily obtain?

    Best,
    Johnny

    Yes, they're here. They call it a Beretta Bobcat. :evil:

    Do you really want to trust a caliber with less energy than a .32? :p

    Actually, they are in the US. That is nothing more than the CZ-45 with some cosmetic changes. You can look about and find one, though I can't commment on price. They were imported about the same time as many of the CZ-24's and the like, if I recall correctly.
