I picked this up in a local shop. Never heard of them before, but I could tell that it would be a lot of fun. Wonder what the muzzle velocity is...

Can't help you on where to find parts, but I can tell you a little about it. I bought one new in 1965, I believe it was made in Czechoslovakia. Mine was very accurate with the .177 pellets. I would put a BB with a drop of 3 in 1 oil it, and it would smoke a little when shot. My son has it now, and it still works. EDINOH.

Thank you, Ed. I had never seen one before I came across this one in a local shop. I suppose I'll probably have to find a generic front and rear sight for it. It seems to be a somewhat powerful air pistol. Either way, it was too cool to be left in some display case in a pawn shop. At least, that's what I tell myself. ;)

Somewhere at my father's house is a Slavia air rifle. I have not seen any others either. you just reminded me to look for it. :)

I got one of the rifles for Christmas in about 1965. It was the most accurate and most powerful air rifle in my neighborhood. I would guess MV at 600 fps. Good luck finding the parts Earl.

Sorry, no help with the sights. I do own a Slavia 620 rifle - very accurate yet simple.

Funny thing. I just picked up one of these pistols at a gun show. They were made 1950 to 1958.

VIT, can you post close-ups of the front and rear sights?
I'm considering using the sights off a cheap muzzle-loader for an interim solution.

My rear sight is bent, I will be taking it off to straighten.

Wow, someone did a fine job that.
I would like to find a similar rear sight for my ZVP. For now, the fixed notch sight and blade sight will have to suffice.

It looks like a simple older-style rifle rear sight and one of the tall Mauser rifle front sights could be easily made to fit. Doesn't look like anything really fancy on that pistol.
