    I've owned 6#....thought they all were made by one company?
    All in varied conditions very good to excellent....
    20 yards they would put two clips in the palm of my hand at 18 yards....
    With Mag Teck ammo...federal closer to same...but Remington or Winchester opened up groups.( Rem. And win. Would make most the guns malfunction. Many times...

    A guy's got to use European 32acp ammo, like Prvi Partizan, Sellier&Bellot, Geco, or RWS for best functioning results.

    IIRC manufacturing was moved to different cites later in production.

    I will have to get my reference out to verify.

    I understand they were made by 2 different plants,Strakonice and Uhersky Brod.....and one is supposed to be a little better then the other.

    Strakonice was early production. Uhersky Brod was post CZ-52, after Straknoice manufacturing was changed to motorcycles or some such product. The long-serialized 50's are more attractive, if nothing more than the serial numbers are neater. I also had a Praha-marked one as well.

    An interesting note is that a large number of CZ-70's are just rebuilt 50's. You can tell by the Strakonice serial numbers.

    Stakoniche ended production in 1952 with a total of 89,712 and Uhersky Brod started production in 1957 ending CZ50 production in 1970.
