Anyone know the difference? Aim Surplus has them on sale real cheap. TIA, Del

CZ50 has more "traditional" construction methods (milled parts, hand fitting, etc.) and is Curio & Relic eligible. CZ70 uses more stampings and is supposedly a more reliable version of the 50. It is NOT C&R. I saw the ad. as well but the FAIR to GOOD condition scares me buying sight un-seen. Almost anything could show up on your doorstep. AIM has always been GREAT to deal with!

I bought the CZ70 for $79.99, I got the one in better shape it's a good 90%. So far I am impressed with it, it looks like it's forged steel and is fitted well. The only thing that is different between the 50 and 70 is the hammer and grips. The double action trigger pull is way to heavy about 15lbs bot it's not to bad in single action about 6lbs. I think I will buy another! I would do business with Aimsurplus again. My CZ70 is not made from stamped steel, it's milled. This is a sweet little gun for $79.00 it only cost me $10.00 to get it here {MI}.

I have a CZ-50 in .32acp and it is a nice compact reliable gun. It is also very accurate. BTW this was my first handgun. Also, don't mess with the internal parts as they are a bitch to put back in. Alex

Too heavy for concealed carry, the truigger would pinch my fat finger. That being said, it was a tremendous value and is a better buy than some guns selling at two to three times the cost. [pistol] I would recommend it. BTW, I spent $10 more for the handpick and my gun, the 50, was in great shape.

I owned a CZ-50 for a couple years.. Yes, it's well made but as a carry gun..I had to pass.. It's a .32 ACP.. Also, when I considered the cost of 50 rounds of .32ACP ball was more money than a box of .45 ACP ball, I realized that regardless of how neat it was, it was just not a good choice for me.. I sold it for what I had in it..About 150.00 Seriously, if you're just collecting em, they ARE neat. Very well made, and plesant to shoot.. But if you need a hideout gun, there are a lot better choices out there.. Meplat.

Thanks Y'all. I feel the same about the .32. I thought that these might be 9x18 or something. I am a .45 lover and roll my own. For the price I'd like to get 1 just because. Now I just need to find out about the IMI Bull M5. It too is being sold for much less than usual. Peace, Del[:)]
