    Cold war handguns - what is your favorite?

    Anyone here into handguns from the cold war?

    My personal favorite is the CZ52 in 7.62 Tokarev. Makes for a good CCW pistol and conceals better and draws easier than most full size arms. Granted, the Tokarev round can be a challenge for those not ready for it, but after many years of having it and being used to it I find mine to be a very reliable and accurate pistol with good ammo.

    If at first you don't succeed, try doing it the way Mom told you to in the beginning.

    I'm starting to work on a Cold War handgun collection. So far I've picked up a Hi-Power and PPK. What else should be on my list?

    You have a couple of nice pieces there. I would love to get those for my collection too.

    The 9x18 Makarov was used for the duration of the cold war, along with the CZ70 in .32acp. The TT-33 7.62x25 Tokarev pistol was a good one, and it also came out in standard 9mm. It was also made in Czechoslvakia by Zastava as the M57 in both calibers. They may look alike but parts are not interchangeable.

    I used to have a Walther PP Super semi-auto pistol back in the 1970's. It was designed by Walther for the West German police as they felt the .380 (9mm kurtz) was too underpowered. It was chambered for the 9mm Ultra, which is very similar to the Makarov round. This was a short lived design, and soon gave way to the full 9mm for police there. It was fun to shoot, but ammo was difficult to find.
