    I've read a couple reviews of the CZ 52 and it sounded pretty badass. Then I read a couple from people who had both the CZ and the Romanian Tok. They said they preferred the Romanian Tok. There's also a Yugo Tok.

    Any suggestions? The CZ is cheaper but not by so much that I care. I'll spend an extra $80 to get a noticeable improvement in quality and/or handling.

    Thanks

    That's interesting. My only pistol is a Glock. When I picked up my friend's CZ I naturally pointed it low. Maybe the Tok is the gun for me. The grip angle is closer to the Glock grip angle.

    That's worth $80 to me.

    be sure to clean the barrel after each shooting of corrosive ammo.

    I forgot that I didn't clean it, and after about six months, i'm pretty sure I destroyed the barrel in my cz. 52. Does anyone know at what point a barrel becomes unsafe due to pitting/corrosion? or does it just degrade accuracy. I can still see the rifling, but it's not very defined.

    New barrels are like $70 I think.

    In my lab. In Canada.
    My Russian Tokarev is a fun pistol to shoot. Cheapest centerfire around here.

    The Tork is more like a 1911 angle than glock

    I've always wondered if you polished the bore of a mil-surplus rifle if it would stop corrosive ammo from eating away at it

    Are they both C&R eligible?
