I was looking at different surplus guns and found that the 7.62X25 ammo for these is extremely cheap. I am thinking about getting one because they are so cheap to shoot. but Southern Ohio Gun doesnt list their prices so i dont know how much they run. Gunbroker had a few listed for just under 300. are they a decent gun? somewhat accurate? and if someone has an account with SOG would you mind checking the price for me? PM if you'd like. Thanks.
Let me know if i would be better off posting this in one of the military arms forums.
I was also considering the CZ-82 in 9x18 Makerov and CZ-83 in .380. Would one of these be a better pistol just for plinking and target practice.
The latest Southern Ohio Gun catalog is selling Romanian Tokarevs in 7.62x25 with original holster, two magazines and a cleaning rod for $220. Additional magazines can be bought from them for $8 apiece.
SOG also has CZ-52s in 7.62x25 rated VG to Excellent for $120 apiece. Shoots the same cartridge and the pistol looks rather more ergonomic to me.
They also have CZ-82s in 9x18 Makarov with holster, 2 mags and cleaning rod for $250 each. No word on additional magazines.
They also have 7.62x25 Tokarev ammo, Romanian 1986 prosuction, for $130 for 1,224 round cases.
mat760: I have the Tokarev and the CZ 52. Both shoot the 7.62 Tok. and both are excellent shooters. Interestingly, the Tokarev ejects the shell case a distance of some 25 feet. The 7.62 X 25 is a powerfull round. I have 5 CZ models and all are good - 4 came from SOG. Dan
checked century today and you have to have an ffl to view their prices too. but they have several guns that i want that i couldnt find anywhere else. if someone has an account with them would you mind sending me a PM and checking a couple prices for me?
