Guys, this is truly amazing - the CZ-52, which already is chambered in a hotshot round, the 7.62 Tokarev, is able to be fitted with a new barrel - .22 Reed Express. This cartridge sends a 55-grain .224 bullet at 2302 fps into space, and presumably, through any bullet resistant vest other than Class IV.

Imagine the $150 CZ-52 with an additional $200 for the barrel - it's much less than half the price of the FN handgun.

Things that make you go "Hmmmm."

Yes because Cops are not the only people who wear kevlar vests. Bad guys actually wear that stuff too. The north hollywood shoot out would have been stopped sooner had one officer at the scene had a weapon that could have defeated the BA that the BGs were wearing. The Court house shooting in Texas, the BG was wearing BA. It's not an un common ocurance. Thats why the FN 5.7 is so great if you can get yer hands on enough ss190(or was the SS192 the good shit? I don't rembember, somone please correct me If i'm wrong.) ammo, because it will penetrate a vest to. But unfortunetly FN stopped importing the good ammo because of that.

Yep, another cartridge of the week.
Two years from now there will be a lot of slightly used barrels floating around the EE.

Since the cartridge still has to fit thru the same mag, I don't see many changes happening beyond a simple necking down. Add to that the availibility in only one pistol( and not a good one at that) and it'll be a dead cartridge pretty quickly.

But a 45gr .22cal through a vest and into a BGS chest is still better then a 9mm, .40, .45 to the chest that doesn't penetrate his vest and only pisses him off more.

I'll have to agree with this statement. Since it's not going fast enough to fragment the wound potential is reduced. But, what's better, a round that won't make it through the vest or one that will and only leave a small wound channel? Any figures on energy yet? I'd be curious to see how fast this round dumps its energy. MJD

Don't matter that the wound channel is small, you get four or 5 or 6 of them inthere and it won't matter one bit. A bullet through the vest, not matter how small is better then a bullet that won't go through. Also do you knopw for a fact that a 45gr FMJ wouldn't fragment at that speed?? I don't have data to say it would, and I've not seen data to say it wouldn't either sooooooo.....

Are you aware of any actual situation where a BG was wearing soft body armor and was engaged by a CCW holder who was somehow prohibited from grabbing a rifle, but was allowed to have his CCW pistol?

If you have time to go get a gun, get a rifle. If your at home and body Armor wearing badguys attack, grab a rifle. If you work in a pawn shop or such put a rifle behind the counter.

The Texas courthouse shooter was shot at by a CCW holder. The BG was wearing a vest, and he returned fire and killed the CCW holder. He didn't have a rifle. Most people who CCW don't carry a .308 over their shoulder too.

(shrug) A .223 barreled Thompson Contender has ALWAYS been able to do that. non issue. Or at least, not a REAL issue. Kevlar vests never have been able to stand up to spire-tipped rifle bullets at those velocities.

If I'm not mistaken, the 7.62 x 25, .30 luger, and 9x19 cartridges all share the same rim dimensions. I'm not sure if the OAL of a .22 reed express cartridge would fit in a standard 9mm magazine, but if it did they could offer conversion barrels for Glock 17's. This would be a huge commercial sucess as long as it doesn't get banned.

Good question. ARFCOM's got it's thinkin' hat on tonight.

Read a post on gunboards.com by a Georgia LEO that has him documenting the shoot of S&B (and other) 7.62 x 25 on a ballistic vest that had reached its maximum service age, and had to be turned in.

In some cases, the vests were easily penetrated on one side, and one round even went through both. In other cases, the rounds were stopped in the front panels!

I have a sneaking suspicion that the vests perform differently when they are placed upon different materials replicating human tissues, and that (as you would suspect) differing rounds have variable performance, from "completely useless" to "very effective."

No surprise there, right? The Sherriff's thrust was that the performance of the .22 Reed out of the CZ-52 BBL would work in all scenarios, as the lowest level of its performance would exceed the highest capability of a Class IIA vest to resist such an attack.

And IN NO WAY am I suggesting or supporting the use of such weapons against lawfully-operating State Officials - that's INSANE.

Did Ol_Painless get locked because a theoretical innocent could be standing behind seventeen layers of drywall when he let loose that .45-70?

I doubt that velocity could be had with a 55 grain bullet out of a CZ52. Even a .223 Rem out of a 10" TC Contender is about 2300 FPS.

A .22 Hornet out of a 10" is good for about 1900 and it has about the same case capacity as the .22 Reed.

The CZ52 uses a delayed blowback action, for one. That is the major difference between the Tok and Mauser. Some minor dimensional differences...The Luger round is a bit different...

I havent seen anyone advocate banning anything in this thread. I'm simply curious why you want to carry a concealed friearm in public that can penetrate soft body armor while offering lessor performance than proven service pistol calibers against unarmored threats. An Ice pick penetrates soft body armor too, but it would be foolish to carry one instead of a 9mm, 40SW, or 45acp.

I'll bet it would work. Why didn't FN and H&K try going down this path before they designed whole new class of firearms for the trials that the FN90 eventually passed?



The CZ52 uses a delayed blowback action, for one. That is the major difference between the Tok and Mauser. Some minor dimensional differences...The Luger round is a bit different...



But don't you think would a .22 Reed express be capable of operating the action of a Glock with a simple recoil spring change?
