Seems like it would be a cheap $175 for one and the ammunition is relatively cheap as well.

Talk me into or out of one.

I like mine.

I've had it for a few years now and once-upon-a-time I had it at the rifle range.

Now the sights on the thing are tiny, as typical of such pistols. But I found that by setting the sights about 3/4's of the way up the 100yd gong I could hit it. About 5 or 6 shots out of an 8 rd mag. This was off the bags on the bench. But I did have people watching and wondering what the hell I was shooting.

I also bought one of those $80 9mm barrels and shoot W-W white box 115gr FMJs through it. Works great with that, but not so much with hollow points.

I need to pick up a couple cases of the 7,62x25 ammo for it though, while it's still cheap and available.

BTW, I put one of those Hogue rubber grip sleeves for a Glock on it and it feels so much better in the hand.

It's not really a pistol . It's a hand-held carbine.

People will stop to see what you are shooting. The brass will eject hard enough to draw blood.

You can buy cheap corrosive ammo in a spam can. They are extremely easy to disassemble and clean.
I have 3, I love mine.

He may have seen a few over there.

I've got a 53' and 54'. At least 2,000 rounds down the pipe on both without a single malfunction using Romanian surplus.

Yugo was all they had on hand when I bought em'. THAT was a mistake. Yeah, stay away from any Yugo 7.65x25. The primers are beasts. Or swap out the cast steel firing pin for a new machined steel one. Yeah, do that anyway.

Your asking a guy that was buying "like new" 52's for only $89 each a few years back ! !

Get it NOW, son - - before they are gone. They don't make any more "surplus", don't ya know . . .

Still have two. I installed a Harrington (sp?) firing pin in one. Now almost like shooting a nice 1911. Great range gun too -- never had anyone shoot it that did not think it was "cool".

Ya gotta get some Wolf HP ammo too. Then try shooting into water-filled milk jugs.


Just make sure your wearing your raincoat . . . .

Are they all used and abused surplus or are some of them essentially "as new in box"?
Link Posted: 8/14/2007 12:39:44 PM EDT
Well, I think they're kind of funky looking myself.

The CZ-82, on the other hand, looks sharp to me and I've got one of those inbound right now. I'd spend the extra $75 for the 82 myself.

I just wish they would classify the Hungarian PA-63 as a C&R because that is another sweet-looking little pistol. If it was added to the C&R list I'd be ordering one tomorrow.

Well . .

the first one I got was "gray" in finish. The gray ones are not a reburb. Would rate this one at about 90-92%

The second one I got was "black" -- there are refurbs. Nothing wrong with a refurb. This one had 100% of the finish on it.

Both shoot the same . . . .

Should have got a couple when they were $89 . . . . . .

And the grey one I got looks just like new. Well, it did.

About the only wear mine had was the blue type finish on the chamber part of the barrel. And it wasn't all that bad. There was practically no holster, or regular type, wear on my pistol. I must have gotten it about 5 yrs ago or so.

Some of the blue ones are badly rebuilt with the pins walking out under recoil. I think these are responsible for a lot of ammo and CZ52 warnings.

Hmm....maybe I was less than clear in my other post Dennis.

My only pistol is grey. Only the barrel has a blued/black type finish.

Only the barrel showed much wear of it's finish. The rest of the pistol looked like new.

I love mine, ammo is cheap and even with the tiny sights it is VERY accurate. Love that BOOM in the indoor range firing points..I think it's money well spent.

Adopted today.

oh, she's purdy.

I took a different approach than you. I've got a spam can under my bed and no CZ to shoot it with...buy it while it's cheap.

They're even better with a nice set of grips and an extended slide release from Makarov.com.

I like the CZ52, but the CZ82 is a better pistol for the money.

Depends on the definition of better. Really depends on the application.


7.62x25 can meet needs no 9mm can ever fulfill.

Perhaps, but that CZ52 is still butt ugly compared to the CZ82.

I have a 52 and like it. Are you guys finding non-corrosve ammo at decent rpices anywhere? I'd buy a case if I could find something good that wasn't uber expensive.

$14-$16/50 for Wolf.
