    nice example,
    The only roller-locked handgun ever made.

    I saw a CZ-52 handle East German "hot-loaded" 7.62x25mm SMG ammo with no problems.

    Is there currently any 7.62x25mm ammo available that matches the Czech M48 loading for this gun? A lot of time the vendors selling surplus ammo have no idea what they have.

    I saw some surplus 7.62x25mm on 8 round stripper clips that the vendor said was for the CZ-52, but why would they be on stripper clips, if it was for the C96 they should have a 10 round stripper clip right?

    The 7.62X25mm ammo on stripper clips is Czech ammo for the Czech series of submachines guns in that cal. and super hot, and works great in the CZ 52 pistol..BILL

    Nice pistol Bill. Any troubles with it? Mine got to where it wouldn't eject the spent cases. I took it apart and a piece back by the rollers had cracked and fell off. Got a new barrel and shoots good. Ron

    I love shooting mine. I waited too late to take advantage of the really inexpensive surplus guns of a couple of years ago, but I finally bought one early this year.

    A lot of the available surplus ammo has magnetic bullets (steel under the bullet jacket) which is not allowed at indoor ranges. I recently found a source of 70's vintage 7.62x25 that isn't magnetic. Helps that it is only US $0.10 per shot (in 1000 quantity).
