I was wanting a Nagant revolver, but ammo is kinda difficult to find, I think I'll get the CZ52, have you had any problems with yours?

I have not had any problems with either of them, I went through the 52 pretty well before I put rounds thru it. It's a good design, a rolling block, easy to find parts and even upgrades.

Default surplus handguns

do a bit of research you can shot 32 S&W from a nagant revolver . but my absolute choice would be a tokarev the yugo M57 is a excellect firearm . i've had one for years and feel it's the best model tokarev out there it's just a shame the magazines are not interchangeable with the other tokarevs

The Walther P-1 9MM Police pistols[Bottom] are nice guns. This gun was like new 1985 issue with the oct. steel take down lever. I found it in a pawn shop some years back for $145 dollars. They have an alloy frame and much better sights than the WWII P-38 pistols[Top CYQ Spandau] Walther. The P-1 is a fine pistol even at todays prices.

I've had one of the Czechpoint vz-52s for a while. Shoots great, hasn't jammed once on just over 800 rounds of new manufacture 7.62. In my opinion, I like it a little better than the Tokarev. Seems a little more controllable, but that might just be my imagination.

I looked at CzechPoint and they are a bit over priced and don't ship with 2 magazines like everyone else, but I'll try to look for one hopefully in Alabama

I also had the P-38 and like it much more than the P-1. P-1seemed to me to be looser than the P-38. MHO.

It could happen all of my P-38 and P-1s are tight fitting handguns. I check and inspect firearms before I buy them. This is the cure for not owning poorly fitted firearms.

The Germans have a history of well made firearms in general but this Percision worked against them (Luger) in the mud, slush & freezing temps of Russia. Their response was to build a better holster. The P-38 was cheaper to build, fewer parts & more reliable.

Our 1911 made to orig specs is incredibly loose by design. Ruger ran into this w their R&D in developing their successful version. HK hired 1911 experts and they developed a prototype but Sig & SW had already beat them to the market w entry level (value oriented), mid- priced and high end 1911s so they just put the design in the vault.

Firearm engineers w love to see what the talented gunsmiths at HK had come up to improve or enhance Brownings design. They did use American 1911 experts for this and they retained them on the payroll for creating the HK45. Dillons Blue point press had a good article on it.

If I understand correctly, the CZ82 replaced the CZ52, is the 82 a better made pistol? That 82 you have Nitro looks like a real jewel.
