I bought a Cz82 several months ago for $209.
It's never been fired.
The prices are staying around $200 at quite a lot of places.

The CZ82 is a great "best bang for your Buck" gun.

If you have big hands as I do the Star Model B pinches the web of my hand every time I shoot it. I much prefer the Super model B which has a longer spur on it. Other than that the model B is a fine pistol.

Default Tokarev or Star B

I have both, and enjoy shooting them, but I favor the Star B due to its M1911 similarity in look and feel, and just overall 'curb appeal'. Ammo is so much easier to find (although I do have LOTS of Tokarev on the shelf), plus the Star just plumb punches the heck out of the bulls eye!

Back in the day, Dad bought a Webley .455 for 17.00 at Montgomery Wards, a Moisan Rifle for uner $20, and an SMLE for under $20 which came with 100 rounds of .303 tracer ammo and a Weaver .22 scope shipped by mistake. All surplus rifles and ammo. Then came the Gun Control Act.....

I've had lots of surplus guns over the past 50 years, all interesting but not all what anyone would call "Great". First thought - be sure you can get ammo, then BUY IT. Second thought - extra magazines are sometimes hard to find and pricey, BUY at least TWO extra magazines. Third thought - before you take something apart, be certain you know how to put it back together. Only take things apart INSIDE the house the first time. Flying springs take other parts with them and hide in grass (personal experience). Fourth thought - Military ( and some civilian) ammo names and metric designations SOUND SIMILAR and interchangeable. Often they are not.

I inherited several hundred rounds of WWII surplus 9mm Parabellum ammo many years ago with odd markings on the bases. Wow! Some countries have/had submachinegun ammo and pistol ammo (not the same). Thought five -beware of surplus ammo loaded with corrosive primers. They will eat your bore if left uncleaned long enough.

They are available from Century Int. Arms, (561) 998-1997, for $59.95 and will provide plenty of safe, cheap fun.

In Alaska I know for sure that Alaska Ammunition Services had several boxes of Nagant revolver on the shelf when I was there.
They also carried most the acp rounds too.

Owning and firing Milsurp handguns are fun!
I used to own a couple that were pretty fun!

Both were 9mm's, my first was a entry level one the Egyptian copy of the Model 1951 Beretta, the Maadi*Helwan Brigadier, the other Swedish Husqvarna m/40
