    To the best of my knowledge, the CZ 70 is NOT a C&R firearm, but it's listed as such in the original post of this thread. Has the CZ 70 recently been added to the C&R list by the BATF?

    The CZ-70 is C&R now, you can buy one now from Wideners. :)
    They have it listed under 01 firearms but it is C&R and states so in the listing, just filed it wrong.

    I have made a HUGE dent on my list and gotten a lot of what I wanted already. Of course when you find one you want and get it, you add something else to the list. LOL
    Here is what I got so far and where I got it at:

    H&R M1 Garand - local gun store
    Underwood M1 Carbine - Empire Arms
    Norinco Tokarev Type 54 - local gun store
    Mosin Nagant 91/30 round - Aim Sports
    Mosin Nagant 91/30 hex - local gun store
    Mosin Nagant M44 - Two Wright Arms Co.
    Mosin Nagant M38 - Empire Arms
    CZ-50 - Wideners
    CZ-52 - Czech Arms
    CZ-70 - Wideners
    CZ-82 - Classic Arms
    Yugo 59/66A1 - Wideners
    Yugo 24/47 - Samco
    Walther P1 - Classic Arms
    Yugo M57 Tokarev - Wideners
    Romanian TT Tokarev - Classic Arms
    Polish TT Tokarev - Classic Arms
    Polish Radom P64 - Classic Arms
    Mosin Nagant M53 Chinese - local gun store
    Swiss K31 - local gun store
    Mauser 98K - Samco
    Polish WZ48 - Centerfire Systems

    I've been really lucky so far and all of them are all matching SN's and in really good shape. Even the M53 is not bad and doesn't have the beaver chewed stock that most have.

    I'm not sure many Norincos are yet CR...Clinton kinda put the Kibash on Chinese imports, although I am now seeing Type 53s listed as CR when they were not too long ago when I bought mine.

    Yeah, I shoot .32 S&W long through my Nagants all the time. I am finding it harder and harder to find it at "8.99/50 lately though...

    Now it only gives me about 10" groups at 10 yds, but it is still pretty fun to shoot, and not as pricey as $28/50 Nagant ammo, and no fitting the acp cylinder...

    Gotta add a Makarov to the list though...

    East Germans are getting pricey, and I am hoping Bulgarians get listed as CR soon...

    But get a CZ82 double stack.....it just might become your favorite carry gun...if you don't have a Russian or EG Makarov....

    I now have a Baikal Russian Makorov and a CZ82....but still end up carrying the Baikal, only because I like having 4 extra mags even if only 8 rounders and I only have two of the 12 round CZ82s...and the Makarov has Pierce grips and is a little thinner....


    The 9x18 Makarov round JHP gives up only 100 fps and 15 grains bullet weight to a full house 9mm Luger and is a helluva lot cheaper to shoot, the gun is a helluva lot smaller and as a blowback a helluva lot more reliable.

    Thanks... the only Norinco Tok's that I am aware of being C&R are the Type 51 and the Type 54.

    Looking for a nice EG or Russian Mak, haven't found a good deal on one yet though. The only Bulgarian Mak that is C&R to my knowledge is the Circle 10 military.

    I've got the CZ82, love it.

    I have had my C&R license for about 3 years now. Let me know if I am wrong, but it appears that the ubiquitous guns from just those couple years back have kinda dried up and prices are rising. I still see a lot of Walther P1 and P38 but really nice CZ 52s? Or Yugo Tokarev in excellent condition? Bought both of those in like new condition for under two hundered. Now prices look like they are closing in on $300. What does this teach us? Buy more guns now! ;-)

    PS I am talking excellent condition, not good or very good.

    If you don't mind a suggestion, I would get a Radom P-83 pistol instead of the P-64. To me the P-83 was more interesting because both the frame and the slide were largely made from heavy-gauge sheet steel stampings. Both are 9mm Makarov, but the P-83 is more pleasant to shoot because of its larger size, better trigger, and better sights.

    Just my $.02 - obviously, you like what you like.

    PS - I am glad to see you like the CZ 38. They are a unique design, if not a very successful one, and very well made, like most CZ products. They make an interesting comparison to the the British 38 Enfield revolver.

    With the yugo zastava m57 being c&r i wonder if the md70 32acp pistol is? It is the baby brother to the M57 and fun to shoot. Heck it even has the removable trigger/ hammer. assy

    Add a Mosin Nagant 91/59 to your Mosins. It is my favorite and most accurate shooting of my 3 Mosin carbines.

    My favorite C&R pistol is my CZ82, but I just got in a Rommie Tok and a Walther P-38 I haven't shot yet.
