Thread: Cz-52

    Cz-52

    Anyone have one? I just put one on layaway to be picked up hopefully the week after next. The idea of a super cheap, hot-shooting plinker is really appealing to me, so I laid some cash down for one. Gonna order a spam can of Tokarev tomorrow.

    Well, I plan on picking this up at the end of the week. I'll be ordering a bulk tin of ammo for it soon, but buying a box of 50 new rounds just to try it out. Its funny to think that such a cheap gun/ammo beats the 5.7x28 in penetration capability... probably not accuracy though or capacity for sure. lol

    Post your shooting impressions. I would like to get one of these or maybe a tokarev. The box o truth has a penetration test on a kevlar helmet vs the tokarev you should read. The Box O' Truth #29 - The Helmets O' Truth - Page 1

    Will do. If you want a quality 7.62x25, you're pretty much left to the CZ. The TT-33 is smaller, lighter, and slimmer however it is not as accurate, and the looks are completely ruined by the addition of the safety for importation. Century really hacked them up during the install (go figure, they hack everything up...).

    Ryan H., I totally disagree that the CZ-52 is more accurate than the Tokarev TT-33.
    I've got a couple CZ-52s and a couple Romanian/Polish Tokarevs.
    Using the same7.62x25 ammo I can out shoot the CZ-52s every time.

    Even with the Tokarev being smaller and lighter, you'd expect more recoil, but I feel more from the CZ-52.

    That being said the CZ-52 is definitely a better built weapon.
    And totally agreed the crappy CIA safeties on the Tokarev can be an amazing pain.

    Well, we'll see about the accuracy. The way the locking mechanism works is just better built IMO. I plan on dovetailing the slide and installing a set of Bo-Mar style adjustable sights. I have a machinist here locally that will do the work for $80 so then we can really see exactly how accurate these guns are. :)

    The guy at the shop I bought mine from has several of both, his CZ52 has the same modification done. He and his son used to shoot gongs at 50 yards with the 52, and the 33 was never capable of doing it despite having fairly good sights. For something to play with and modify, I'm sure either is a good bet, but the 52 is just obviously more durable and the lockup is very solid.

    Initial impression is "Damn, that really is as loud as they say!"

    Little felt recoil, very easy on the hands. Was able to plink cans at 15 yards, we'll see how it does on paper next week. Cleaning the corrosive ammo is super fun (not)!

    Ryan,

    When you get your new sights, would you please post

    Don't get me wrong I really like my CZ-52s otherwise I wouldn't have gotten a couple of them. But the sights aren't that great. Anything outside of 20 yards, I start diverting outside of a paper plate and operator error is a big factor. But they are fairly used weapons and maybe a new barrel, spring would help but the sights would be my best bet!

    melloyello,

    I have found at 25 yards I make a fist size group, limiting factor being the sights. This is at an indoor range, and I haven't had my glasses or contacts in 2 years now. My eyesight is very very poor when it comes to focusing far out. Luckily, my company insurance kicks in on the 1st and I'll be making an eye appointment finally! You are definitely right on about the sights though- they suck for any long range work!

    On the other hand, a buddy and I did a small "penetration" test today using old motorcycle batteries. Shooting them front-faced, 9mm .40 and .45 all stuck right in. The 7.62x25 rounds were blowing the entire cases apart and sending lead cores EVERYWHERE. We decided to shoot two of them lengthwise, back-to-back. The rounds busted right through both of them. The severe penetration of this round is just incredible!

    Aside from the sights, the first mod this gun is getting for sure is a customized thumb safety! That safety really bites my skin during long sessions, and sometimes the web of my thumb/index finger will cause it to flip up after a couple of magazines, of course without me knowing.
