    Default VZOR 50. 7.65 cal, Walther PP copy, pics

    Stopped at my favorite pawnshop and spotted this pistol. Looked and felt like a Walther PP. First time I have seen one of these. I couldn't resist the price, $199. Anybody know about them? Seems like a nice little gun, like my Walther! I would rather shoot this than the Walther, the Walther is too nice. Was it made in 1969 according to the mark?

    I have one and like it a lot. I think I am going to loose it because my daughter has fallen in love with it. I think I will let her have because it is cool to have a 12 old girl more interested in guns than in boys.

    Spetz...My daughter exactly....except she's 38 now. Always out shot the boys and practices from her horse in Texas now.

    AC...I think 1969 is correct. I think (ouch).

    I've been thinking about one for a long time but now it seems that there are only VZ 50s out there and they are not C&R so I can't grab one (I live in the People's Republic of Massachusetts). I've seen them cz 50s going for between $189 - $299 depending on condition, original box, number of mags on the various auction sites. Sounds like $199 was a good pick up!

    FWIW I was stationed in Germany as the wall was coming down (circa 1990). The post Rod & Gun Club from time to time would get a load of them in from, as I recall, the German gun dealer/distributor Waffen-Frankonia. The CZ-50's were in new condition and came with a new holster. They sold for $73.00 USD (sometimes less) depending upon condition. These were real bargains. I bought one and later sold it for $250.00 when I came back home (didn't have enough cash to finalize the purchase of a Delta Gold Cup) to a collector.

    I own two of these, purchased them a couple years ago when all the dealers seemed to be overloaded with them. At that time there were a lot of posts complaining about the fact that the magazine is designed to hold 8 rounds but won't chamber the first and some times second round if you have it full. I've always had to just load 6 rounds and then it would work flawlessly. The two that I have do the same thing, and changing magazines doesn't make any difference. There is one thing I want to try and that is modifying the magazine. I have a Norinco 213 in 9mm that does exactly the same thing. I took one of the magazines and ground the lips back slightly so that the round is clear of the magazine a little sooner. Right now it seems to have solved the problem, so I'm going to try the same trick on one of my cz50 mags and see if that helps, if not then I have six shot capacity only. Other than this I really like these little guns and other than the cost of ammo I love the .32 acp round.

    AirCommando:
    Yes, the 69 is definitely the year and it was the last year the CZ50 was made, after that came the CZ70's. I also have a 69 made one as well as a 1950 one which was the 1st year production.
    BTW, in case you did not know, your pistol has a chamber loaded indicator. When a round is in the chamber, it pushes out on the extractor which in turn pushes out the round pin(left side of slide) so you can see and feel it. Also, the lever in the grip panel is a combination safety/decocker. In the lower position, it's on safety. Pushing it even lower will decock the pistol. Enjoy your nice find!
    One last thought: The Dealer Warehouse has extra parts, mags and grips for these handguns.

    Just had an afterthought AirCommando: Both of my 50's came with flat base mags. Don't know when CZ introduced the finger rest version. All 70's I've seen have the finger rest ones. Maybe someone can help with more info here about approximate dates when the changeover was made.

    Speaking of mags, I bought this mag in addition to the original, and it has a finger rest also.

    Thanks all, I have a "smal" problem, I am from Slovenia EU and most US stores can't send to Slovenia .
    I read all about CZ50 here and I am very happy about, until now I just practice with Snap cap A-ZOOM .32 auto loading and fireing and knowing about. I don't understand well safety, when load it and pull safty down the hammer falls for me seem to be fire...
    I will try this on safe place because here in my country the weapon is not like in US.
    Best regards to all
