    Default WTK: value of nice VZ 52 ??

    what is the collective wisdom here on the value or approx worth of a really nice VZ 52 ? This one has an excellent shiny bore and is all original in condition. Is this a 4 to 5 hundred dollar rifle or more ??
    Also, where were they import marked ?? I can't find any markings of importer ??
    Many thanks in advance for your help !

    Below $ 300.00 IMHO and should be marked on the barrel near bayo if IIRC.

    seems $250 to $300 is average. I was very lucky and found one at a pawn shop for $160 and guy took $150 for it.

    The rifle that goes for 4-500 dollars or more is the VZ52/57 chambered in 7.62x39 from the factory. The VZ52 in 7.62x45 is often under $300.

    I payed $250 a few years ago for a VZ52 with 6 boxes of ammo and a sling. Mine is in excellent condition also and doesn't have any import marks but its obviously from the Middle East. I doubt the value went up to 4-500 dollars since I bought mine especially since 7.62x45 ammo is getting harder to find.

    I'd pay $350 for a non-import marked matching Vz52 in excellent to minty condition. I've seen minty ones go as high as $500 but that is an anomaly. Most go for much less ($175-$275) but are, in general, only in good to very good shape (beat up stocks, dark bores, etc.). As Candr44 pointed out, it's the Vz52/57's chambered in 7.62x39mm that fetch premium prices. This is due to the fact that 1) they're rarer in this country, at least for now 2) they are usually found in much better condition than Vz52's, and 3) ammo is plentiful and cheap.
