(MANUAL) CZ-52 Manual (.pdf)
|As with the assault rifles (see vz.58), Czechoslovakians want to go by their own road with Warshaw pact. They developed their own military handgun for famous 7.62TT round - a Cz.52. Adopted in 1952, this handgun employed somewhat unique (for handguns) roller-locked, recoil operated design, originally used in German MG-42 mashinegun. During the initial stage of each shot, the barrel and the slide are interlocked by two small rollers, and recoiled back together. After the short recoil, rollers are moved inwards and released the slide. Barrel stops and the slide cycles all the way back to eject empty case and feen new cartridge.

Cz-52 is powerful and accurate, it features three positions manual safety (mounted on the frame): "fire" (lower position), "safe" (middle), "decock" (push up). The one known drawback of the Cz52 is very frangible firing pin, so this gund shouldn`t be dry fired.
Today this handgun is retired from Czech army and is sold for private citizens as a military surpulus.
