And the Czech gun makers were NEVER afraid to tell the Soviets to shove their crappy pistols where the sun doesn't shine.
I could have bought one of those TT33s for just about the same money, but I'm just not partial to that blocky, crappy Soviet school of pistol design. I will readily admit that there are a couple examples of Sgt. Kalishnikovs work in the Lurker compound, though.
If you see one of these CZs in your local gun purveyors shop do take a look at them. They ain't as pretty as the 83, and they're nowhere near as 'tight' as a Kimber, but for the price they're definitely worth a look.
Ammo at $12.50 a box ain't a bad thing, either. Just sayin'....
You’ve got a point, it’s not in the same league as Nagants and Toks.
