CZ 52

Postby iridium-192 » Sun Sep 11, 2016 1:48 pm

Here it goes again! I've bought ANOTHER comblock cold war era pistol... :twisted:
This time it is a real beast, beautiful & ugly at the same time...
Czechoslovakian 1953 made (Good luck pronouncing that... :lol: )
CZ-52, chambered, as you well aware, in 7.62x25 caliber!
Since, I've found that it is actually legal to buy C&R pistols (As long as it was made 50+ years ago) in California, I didn't think long before buying another pistol of that category...

Share with us your experience with this pistol, if you have one, and what you think about this piece of history as well as the cartridge, it would be very interesting to hear!
Thank you!

I have some ideas regarding this pistol...

Here are some pictures I've found in internet...

Take a close look at middle one, it has magazine release in "modern" place, not "hill" type of release.

Coating with Chrome or duo - color, as well as flash light rail are very desirable mods, I think...

That's a handsome piece and quite a bit bigger than I thought it would be. I've never come across one but would snag one up in a swift heartbeat if I did! :thumbup:

I've heard that this gun can be converted to use 9x23 Winchester cartridge.... Should be very interesting mod)))
I'm thinking to attempt to convert this single action only to double - single.... Well, I don't know yet if it is even possible mechanically...
As far as I'm aware, there where some attempts to convert 1911 to double - single action, even though it sounds like heresy, yet from purely mechanical stand point, it sounds very attractive to me...
Here is a web link:
