    Any opinions? Picked one up today at the gun show with 210 rounds for $140. Thought it would be fun to mess around with. It's in 7.62x25 but when I go pick it up on Thurs the guy said he might have a 9mm conversion barrel I can have.

    Great pistol. I love mine. Only warning, do not dry-fire it. You'll break the firing pin.

    i have one.

    bought the upgraded firing pin.

    i think it was only $80, but this was probably 4 or so years ago when everything was cheap

    Great little gun, and the cheapest surplus ammo you can find. Power about equivalent to .45, and flat shooting out to 100yds.

    haven't shot much .45, so i'm not familiar with the ballistics, but the recoil seems about the same.

    Don't trust the decocker on it, they are prone to wearing and firing when you try to make the pistol safe.

    Also remember the surplus ammo is corrosive.

    Thank you all for the information. I'm like a sponge right now, getting info from all around.

    If he gives me the 9mm barrel I'd planned on just putting it aside because I am going to order a good bit of ammo for it from Sportsmansguide.com, or similar if I can find it cheaper.


    I found a few sites with aftermarket parts to resolve some of the issues the gun has, so I will probably get a firing pin, and I will also be mindful of the decocker. It's just going to be something different to take out and shoot, and I won't be carrying it or anything like that.
