Will do. If you want a quality 7.62x25, you're pretty much left to the CZ. The TT-33 is smaller, lighter, and slimmer however it is not as accurate, and the looks are completely ruined by the addition of the safety for importation. Century really hacked them up during the install (go figure, they hack everything up...).
Well, we'll see about the accuracy. The way the locking mechanism works is just better built IMO. I plan on dovetailing the slide and installing a set of Bo-Mar style adjustable sights. I have a machinist here locally that will do the work for $80 so then we can really see exactly how accurate these guns are.
The guy at the shop I bought mine from has several of both, his CZ52 has the same modification done. He and his son used to shoot gongs at 50 yards with the 52, and the 33 was never capable of doing it despite having fairly good sights. For something to play with and modify, I'm sure either is a good bet, but the 52 is just obviously more durable and the lockup is very solid.
Post your shooting impressions. I would like to get one of these or maybe a tokarev. The box o truth has a penetration test on a kevlar helmet vs the tokarev you should read. The Box O' Truth #29 - The Helmets O' Truth - Page 1
My eyesight is very very poor when it comes to focusing far out. Luckily, my company insurance kicks in on the 1st and I'll be making an eye appointment finally! You are definitely right on about the sights though- they suck for any long range work!......
If someone made some decent JHP's, it would be a nasty little defense round. It would also be cool to have a little carbine like the Ruger 10-22, chambered in it. I have a couple of packs of Mag-Safe rounds in the caliber, but haven't tested them yet. Have fun with it.
