I'm getting my CZ52 on Tuesday and aside from weak firing pins, what do I need to know about them? Also where can I get extra mags, holsters, and cleaning rod? Cause mine doesn't come with anything aside from one magazine and the pistol itself. Thanks

Where did you buy it and cost?

My local gun store for $299, I know that's a lot but it wasn't refurbished and in amazing condition.

Yeah but I can't find ,any other than that one, in my area. And I am hesitant of ordering one online, cause I can see it until it gets here. Plus I'm not the one paying for it, it's my birthday present.

It's my first pistol and my first post WWII firearm. And I'm going to order a holster and extra magazine and another firing pin just incase.

Also, will putting a aftermarket firing pin in it take away it's C&R designation? Cause I thought if you put non-original parts on a C&R gun that it takes away its C&R? I may be wrong though, just wondering

Doesn't really matter unless you bought it on a FFL03 collector's license, IIRC. If you bought it from a shop, it shouldn't matter.

I like mine, also a '53. Sportsman's guide has a three pack of mags and a barrel and a pin. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/search/eSearch.aspx?SearchTerms=cz-52&eMode=

Fancy parts: http://www.harringtonproducts.com/

The online price for a spankin new one is $300 at czechpoint. http://www.czechpoint-usa.com/products/vz-52/vz-52-pistol-unissued-condition/

You MUST shoot it at night; great flameball.


EDIT* Read up on the decocker issue before you put too much faith in it.

Although I've never had a problem with mine,huh, my sons now. If you are aquiring backup parts you might want to get a set of rollers also. Ours had a cleaning rod in the original holster as well as a spare mag.

Also, we found that the accuracy of the gun depends on your trigger pull technique more than most pistols. I guess because it leaves the barrel @ 1600fps the slightest hard trigger pull will make you shoot low. It is definately the most accurate pistol that my son or I own once good technique is mastered.

Enjoy !!
