The references to the CM-2 being robbery beyond $80 to pay for really date this article....
I know it was a dated article.
However, I posted it because of the relevant information on the model numbers.
And, the first-hand opinions and evaluations on quality and workmanship.

Do you have one?
Have you seen one up close and fired one?
Again, I know my CM-2 is a keeper and a prize to own.
No Sir ... to my regret I don't own a CM-2.
My Russian firearms purchases have been limited to the Biathlon Series 7-3 & 7-2.

I was referring to opportunistic investors.
Those people who will buy anything for the purpose of reselling for profit.
They, generally, know little or nothing of the commodity they're buying.

I am not referring to knowledgeable gun traders/buyers
who keep a sharp eye out for firearms that are, unwittingly, priced below market value.
They know a bargain when they see it.

But, they, more than likely, will offer the firearm to another gun enthusiast ... at a fair price.

I've already seen some auctions on TOZ 35 Free Pistols.
It was obvious from the accompanying description,
the sellers had no idea of the significance of the product they were trying to hawk.

Most likely, the TOZ was a CDNN purchase ... cleaned-up a little
and being re-sold at a higher price.
