Hi,

I have been siting every night in a hotel room. I been collecting per diem and have not gone out and blown it like the rest of my group at the bars.

That said I Don't know if I made a good choice or not but I just bought a CZ Model 52 Pistol, Cal. 7.62 Tokarev for $199.00. I also purchased 400 rds from sportsman wharehouse 7.62x25 Tok. 85 Gr. FMJ for 130.

I have read this is a great pistol. It is not a glock but I have 330.00 in a psitol and 400 rds. vs 575 just for pistol

Any opinions on this pistol?

Works just fine and is accurate just be careful not to dry fire it or let the hammer dropper drop the hammer on the firing pin; both actions will break the pin. You can find spare parts and accessories at the Makarov.com website. I think you will really enjoy your CZ52.

He can get a less brittle modern firing pin, but it is still not a gun to dry fire.

The CZ-52 usues a roller-locked firing system, just like HK uses on the MP-5 and the P9S. It is a very strong action, and the 7.62 Tokarev round is very powerful. I would love to see a modern handun chambered for it, and some good expanding ammo.

Fun gun to shoot, have fired several hundred rounds through it once I replaced the fireing pin. Enjoy, powerful round.

fun gun....can;t beat the deal, BUT, as it was compared to "575 just for the pistol" I have to say, 1) you can get a great SD pistol for less than 575, or a great one for about that much, and 2) for me, I am not trusting my life to a CZ-52. I will stick with a newer model - my Taurus or Springfield XD. My CZ is just a toy and a backup to a backup to a backup in case of emergency.

..and some good expanding ammo.
I think the whole point to have this pistol is to be able to defeat body armor and for that FMJ is just fine:) Even if that .30 cal bullet expanded, it would still be somewhere around unexpanded .38-.40 cal one. Overpenetration would be a concern as well. Mild steel jacket on the other hand would be nice.

Nobody was wearing body armor when the Tokarev came out. I look at it as similar to a .357 Sig round if they made some good ammo and a modern firearm for it.
