Overall Condition: This gun retains about 95% of its metal finish. There is generally “thinning” of the finish and surface marking. The muzzle shows minor wear, likely from holster use. There are just a few minor mars on the slide. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about fine condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this gun.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: There are two magazines provided with this gun, one is marked “4179” on the bottom, the other has no markings. Both look military and are in good serviceable condition.
Our Assessment: This is the famous Czech CZ52 used by many Eastern bloc countries and only recently imported (1990’s) in to the U.S. The 7.62x25 round is considered very powerful by any measure. This will make a great home protection gun and will go through just about anything.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be transferred in California and is C&R eligible.
