    CZ and Hungarian PPK clones

    On a whim I stopped in a gun shopa nd saw 2 380 Walther clones.
    One was a Hungarian FEG(?) and the other was CZ. Both looked in good condition, and the price was in the mid $200s. Looked to be a good CCW.
    Any info? Do you have one and what do you think?
    This is not meant for a slam the manufacturer. Just the facts.....

    9x18 Makarov is a capable little round. I have a couple of Polish P-64 pistols made at the famed Radom Arsenal #11 where the famous Radom VIS 35 was made. The VIS 35 is regarded by many as the best pistol of WWll. You can buy P-64's from J&G Sales for less than $160 and they are great little shooters.

    I have a FEG .380. Not a bad little carry gun. A bit too big for the .380 round but it is reliable. The trigger is heavey but if you can live with it go for it. The Chechs make some of the best guns around.

    I have a Polish P-64, stout little pistol that is accurate, & a SMC-918 (FEG) that is accurate and an easy carry. Both are in 9x18 Makarov and both are well made sturdy pistols. SMC is lite, good shooter. Sites on the clones can be tiny, but there are ways to eluminate. Here is a link to other 9x18 pistols & walther type clones. Makarov.com - Other Pistols

    Can't give you any inputs on the FEG, as for the CZ it depends on the model. If it is a model 82 it is a surplus weapon, chambered for the 9X18 Mak. If it is a model 83 it is a civilian version and will be either .32 or .380. Both are well built, quality firearms.

    If it is a model 82 the price is a little high, you can order them on line for about $200.00. If it is a model 83 then the price sounds like a good deal. The 83 MSRP is about $500.00.

    I have a P 64 and a FEG PA 63, both excellent pistols for the price. The P 64 is my BUG.

    I beleive the FEG PA-63 is the only Soviet-block PPK look-alike that has the light weight frame. They make excellent carry pistols. If the trigger pull on yours does not thrill you, for a few bucks you can replace the main and recoil springs for a huge improvement.

    The CZ-82 is my favorite of the Soviet surplus pistols. Being all steel, it is a bit heavy, but I have carried it. Either of these pistols would serve you well. Around here, the FEG is under $220 out the door, and the CZ-82 is about $250. Those prices inlcude all shipping and FFL fees and sales tax.

    If the CZ you saw was the CZ82, while similar in size and blowback operation its not a clone of the Walther PP series and its a much better handgun in my opinion. Its chambered in caliber 9X18 (Makarov). They are the best bargin going today in a quality handgun and since they are C&R guns its even better. CZ pistols in general are great handguns. You may have seen the CZ83 which is still in production and its a .380 caliber gun, the CZ82 is a surplus handgun that was used by the Czech military and police.

    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    The CZ 70 is a PP clone, the 82, as mentioned, is not.
    That's it, in .32 acp, or 7.65 Browning.

    9X18

    The gun looks like the pa63 depicted above

    According to the reasearch I did, there are 3 9MM rounds:
    9X17 AKA 380
    9X18 which is a russian round somwhere inbetween the 17 and 19
    9X19 which is the standard 9mm.
    Question is: will the 9X17 function correctly in the gun made for a 9X18?

    Probably not, since the 9X17 (.380) is going to carry a lighter powder load. I'd guess you'd encounter FTE problems with it.

    I would not recommend firing a load that is not designed for the gun. You're risking serious injury and possible damage to the gun.

    Thats what I was thinking.
    I will keep on looking.
    I really want a PPK, but their prices went thru the roof.
    Thanks all.
    Merry Christmas and happy new year to all.
