    Anyone work on these? I have a good one, but the hammer spring seems to be weak. The first shot, never pops the primer. Recock, fire and there are no more problems. It's easy to remove the hammer assy on these, but I haven't seen parts for them anywhere except www.buymilsurp.com and they only sell the complete hammer assy. Can you buy the spring? Thanks for your help.

    You might try Numrich or Springfield Sporters.

    Thanks, I tried Numerich, but they only had rifle parts for the brand. I'll look up Springfield Sporters.

    I just tried Springfield Sporters and they don't list the gun. I finally went to Zavasta and emailed them. I wonder where you can buy an M57A, the 9 mil version of the M57?

    They're in stock now. Have you ordered one yet? At that price they won't last long.

    It kind of makes me chuckle to myself when I see what is basically the same guns be different for FFL requirements. My CZ82 is C&R but an almost identical(and if I may say less powerful) CZ83 is not. M57 in 7.62x25mm IS C&R but this M70 in 9x19mm is not. It's just crazy how they pick and choose what they'll "allow" us to buy with our C&R and what they won't.
    Last time I checked Classic Arms had some M57's in stock for $249 and new mags for $30.

    It is because the CZ82 and M57 were military issued firearms and therefore more collectible.

    I get that, it's just you'd think if the more powerful guns were "legal" for us to buy with out C&R's the less powerful ones would be ok as well.
    What we need is something in between the Type 01 FFL and the Type 03 C&R that would let us buy ALL firearms and have them shipped to our door(just like in pre-1968 days) but not necessarily be engaged in business like the Type 01 forces you to be.
    That way we could cut out the middle man and just send off for a new Glock or 870 shotgun and not have to mess with our local dealers who normally jack up the prices quite a bit.
