Classic has some OEM surplus magazines for the 81's now for $36. Limited supply, for those interested.

Any reloaders here for the .32 ACP(?) or have experience w/Berry's plated bullets in .32 cal? If so, what is your experience/admonition(s)?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I love mine, even with a TINY pit of rust and mini freckles here and there. All but un-noticeable after rubbing with a rag and some oil.

Nice pair of grips, and she's good to go.

Statistically, it is hugely better than 25acp; 25acp only exists because JMB himself couldn't get a vest-pocket pistol in 22lr to feed & fire reliably enough to meet his exacting standards. As far as stopping power goes, 22lr is superior to 25acp, and 32acp is better yet. Get the Silvertips: they've got the best rep in 32acp.

I have CZ-70 (early 50's model) that I got from J&G Sales in AZ years ago. it's .32 acp before the Walther brought out the PPK. It shoots absolutely fanatastic and is built like a tank. It was made in East Germany!

That is quite interesting. The CZ vzor 70 was not made until 1970 (hence the model number vz 70). It was an update to the CZ vzor 50 which was made from the late 1940s to 1970. So, it would be very hard to possess a model 70 that was made in the early '50s. Most likely, you have a CZ-50 if it was made in the early '50s.

My CZ 50 says "CESKA ZBROJOVKA - PRAHA" on the slide. My CZ 70 says "MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA" on the slide. I have never seen another that was not marked like these. You may have an extremely rare Model CZ-70. Hang onto it!

Another very rare pistol in 32ACP is the East German P1001-0, which was an unauthorized copy of the PPK.

Well, I picked her up Thursday evening,,,

Well, I picked her up Thursday evening,,,
And I have to say I am quite pleased with the gun.

There's holster wear on the high points of the slide,,,
But there are no dings or scratches in the metal.

I know I will be able to spruce it up with some cold blue,,,
But for now I'll just be happy to shoot with her.




The dang import roll mark was a surprise though,,,
In all the images on their website,,,
None showed this.



A bit of black enamel will cover the white if it starts to bug me too badly.

All in all I'm very pleased so far,,,
Who wouldn't like a Beretta for $209.00.

Tomorrow morning it's to the range with 100 rounds of ball ammo,,,
If she shoots as well as she dry fires I'll be a grinning fool.

Getting rid of import markings on a gun

I have not tried it, yet, but I am willing to bet that the import mark on the trigger guard would be easily erased with a stone and then cold blued. Of course, the degree the cold blue will match up should be tested first. Maybe under a grip panel so it won't show.

Do NOT cold blue the trigger guard..... The grip-frame is aluminum, and will not enjoy it. Use Aluminum Black instead. Or black nail polish

I was going to reload 32acp until finding out how cheap factory ammo is...but if I wanted some pet loads I'd use Berry's.

It's the ones not in their right minds that I'm more concerned about.
