    would you rather have...?

    If you could only choose one, which would it be... CZ-52 or a Tokarev? I was just kind of wondering what everyone's opinion is. I've got several CZ-52's, but no Tokarev's. I just love that 7.62x25 round.

    I had a CZ-52 in Alaska, bought it from Soldotna Pawn for $100 complete with the pigskin holster, cleaning rod, and two magazines. Only place I could get rounds for it was in Anchorage, if I remember I think it was 75 round boxes for $8? That thing was surprisingly LOUD when I shot it:P and It's a little snappy but it was an joy to shoot "with ear protection".

    All that said I would probably choose the Tokarev if I could do it again because it looks like it would feel more like an 1911 in the hand, and I don't believe they have that Firing pin issue the CZ-52 is prone too.

    Just my two cents

    back when I bought my CZ's, you could get 1,000 rounds of chinasports ammo for $90. (this was at a local gun shop) I think the pistols were $109 or $119 for hand-select. the firing pin thing is definitely an issue. I've never dry-fired one... always used the de-cocker. however, I think someone dry-fired one of mine while I wasn't watching, and broke the end off of the firing pin. I just replaced it with a titanium pin. it was simple. I've held Tokarev's, but never fired one. I would be curious to see how they shoot, and to see how easy they are to field strip.

    I wish there were more ammo options for the 7.62x25 in Alaska, that's the only turn off of moving there is ammo Availability, I'm worried about the 5.45x39 situation. I would ship some up there before I make the move if it were an option but it's not

    just out of curiosity, why the non-safety version?

    Toks never had safeties, in order for them to be imported. They must have safeties; so most toks have janky junk drilled and welded on to it. Very unreliable and might make it less safe to carry or fire. I’ll still pick a tok over a cz just because I know a little more about the tok.

    Tok. Feels less weird in my hand, push button mag release. The little safeties they put on in the late 90s I can overlook.

    TT-33 simply because they're more available and they don't have the firing pin issue the CZ-52s did. Back when the 52s were coming in, there were several places that had cheap but more durable firing pin replacements. Haven't seen them in awhile but again haven't really been looking. Also the TTs are about 100 bucks cheaper than the 52s. Grab one before they dry up too.

    That being said.. I really like the 52. I was able to hit a pie plate at 100 yards and I'm not exactly a great shot.

    I have both and like both but if it came down to one vs. the other: Cz. wins.

    The TT33 lacks alot of refinement and is relatively crude from what I have seen the Cz is more accurate but has the problem with the firing pins but that is relatively easy to fix.
    The TT33 are not safe to carry with a round in the chamber and the hammer down and I am not really a believer in the 1/2 cock safety notch of the TT33 either.
    The Cz. is a little wider and has a different feel than the TT33, it definitely points differently than the TT33.
    Plus I like the hotter ammunition that the Cz has when I can find it.

    No experience with CZ52, but own a Yugo and Romanian Tokarev. I personally wouldn't carry either unless I was really desperate. Having said that, M57 Yugos are still pretty cheap so you might as well pick one up if you want to. Bear in mind the M57 is a little bit different spec than other Tokarev derivatives, like a larger magazine and different recoil spring mechanism.

    oh, I'm definitely not planning on carrying either. just something to tinker with, and to enjoy shooting. although, 25 years ago or so, I did carry my CZ52 as a sidearm when I was in the woods, or when I had to go into 'the hood'.
