    Like the title says, would like a 9mm replacement barrel for a CZ-52 pistol. Don't need an extended or ported one, just a plain ol' replacement for the 7.62x25 Tokarev barrel that is in it, slightly used would be ok also. Prefer it to have the roller cam and roller locks installed, but can use the one's original to it in a bind. Can't find if it needs a heaver recoil spring to go with the 9mm barrel, so advice there would be appreciated.

    The usual suspects like Numrich, Sarco, Midway, AIM, Hessen, JSE, BuyMilSurp.com, etc. don't have them in stock.

    If you got a line on one, or know a military gun parts supply house that might have one I would appreciate the link.

    No body has made them for over a decade...
    so... they were a limited production to begin with, good luck, let me know if you find a stash, easier to find a converted 52 on the secondary market.

    Will do Shadow 7D.

    Hopefully some folks will see it this weekend and remember they have a few stashed in a parts drawer they don't need.

    I found mine after a multi-month search on Gunbroker et.al.

    I payed 200$ for it--the price of the pistol itself. You are far more likely to find a pistol with the 9mm barrel (for +500$) than the barrel itself at this point. I think they have all been assembled into guns by now. I passed on half a dozen 9mm pistols because I only wanted the barrel.

    I bought mine as a long-term strategy; by the time I shoot up my 800rounds Bulgarian crud-plus, 7.62tok will probably be no more than an expensive boutique round--and I like the gun too much to relegate it to safe-duty.

    Somebody really needs to tool up to make these again; there is a large and increasing demand now the surplus is near-gone, and they really aren't that hard to manufacture. Plenty profitable at +200$ a pop, too.

    My understanding that the problem of 9MM barrels is one of libility, people were boring them out to 9X21. The gun couldn't take the pressure and after a while " Kaboom ". So they just stoped making them. Don't know, just what I read.

    ^ I'd guess it had more to do with the readily available and very cheap spam cans of 7.62x25...there just wasn't much of a market for 9mm barrels. Of course, now that those 7.62Tok cans are as rare as unicorns, 9mm is reemerging as a good option. I'm sure if you got enough of a quorum, a manufacturer would make a production run. I'd be interested.

    I know a guy that just got one for $<70 BNIB, rollers etc., new Wolf spring shipped. They are out there and hopefully this thread will bring another one out of hiding.

    Got a few thousand rounds of x25, but like the ability to use a secondary caliber that is a bit easier to find.

    I do have one. It’s threaded, with rollers, drop in and ready to go. I was using it with a suppressor back a few years ago. The CZ52 shoots really nice suppressed without a booster incase anyone is wondering. I’ll let it go with a Gemtech Trinity fixed mount for $200 + $10 shipping. But it might take a few months before I find it. If anyone here is interested post below and when I find it I’ll PM you.

    Thanks, Dan

    Dark Tranquility, thanks for the offer, but that is a bit out scope of what I want and price range right now.

    However I hope one of the other folks that have been looking will make contact with you about it.

    Anybody else find one, please let me know.
