The Vzor 52 is a semi-automatic pistol designed in the early 1950s for the Czechoslovakian military. It served as their official sidearm for 30 years. The 52 is a roller-locked short recoil-operated, detachable box magazine-fed, single-action, semi-automatic pistol chambered for the 7.62x25mm cartridge. It has a deep but slim grip and a low hump, which meets the web of the hand at the rear of the grip, leading to relatively high felt-recoil. The CZ 52's operating controls consist of a single-action trigger, an external hammer, a magazine catch located at the heel of the grip frame, and a combination de-cock/safety lever located on the left rear side of the receiver aft of the left grip panel. This pistol features a fixed blade front sight with a rear notch and an 8-round magazine. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
