I am wanting to buy a pistol in this caliber to bang around with.

I do not know what is the best quality pistol in this caliber.
I was thinking maybe a CZ52, but I don't know what is the best as far as reliability,accuracy etc.

I am hoping some of the more learned in this crowd could possibly steer me in the right direction.

Thanks for any input.

I'm guessing you mean 7.62x25. To the best of my meager knoledge, your choices are Tokarov, Cz-52, and broomhandle mauser (pretty sure the ammo interchanges.) . I have the Cz-52 and tokarov, like the Cz-52 the best.

NO! The ammo does not interchange. 7.62x25 ammo is too powerful for the Broomhandle, even though dimensionally it is almost exactly the same.

A lot of people will try to sell you 7.62X 25 for your broomhandle but Henry is right. The only thing stopping you from eating the bolt is the boltstop. The one on mine shattered into several pieces. It did stop the bolt but I hate to think what might have happened if I had not been using 7.63 X 25 ammo.

I am thinking of buying a 7.62.25

I do not know all pistols that are chambered in this caliber.

I DID mean to type x25 in the above post, I guess all the 5.7x28 hype got my fingers crossed up.

Now,

are there any problems or concerns regarding the CZ?

I am hoping someone will enlighten me before I take the great leap.

The Cz-52 has a habit of breaking firing pins, thats about it.

CZ-52 is a fabulous combat handgun. The ammo shoots very flat, and has a very high muzzle velocity, comparable to a .357 mag. The light bullet (normally 85gr. in milsurp) means it doesn't have a lot of knockdown power, or recoil, but its high velocity means it has no problem going through, say, a car door. (Should you find yourself in a defensive situation requiring yourself to do so, that is.)

The grip shape is a bit unusual, and often takes getting used to. It only holds 8 rounds. Since they are milsurp, sometimes minor gunsmithing must be done to make a specific example shoot reliably. It has no toggle for the slide release. And it shoots single-action only.

I have even been know to carry it CCW, as its slim profile makes it highly concealable.

There exist conversions to 9x19 Parabellum ammo, and also 9x23 Largo. Some report that the 9x19 one has feeding difficulty. The grips are ugly, but there are lots of handsome wood replacements out there.

As for ammo, right now milsurp is plentiful and inexpensive, but I wouldn't count on it staying that way. It's commercially made too, at a slightly higher price. If you get boxer-primed commercial stuff, like is made by S&B, Fiocchi, or FNM, it's reloadable, and then you can choose from several different bullets, and generally get more consistant results than with 50-year-old milsurp.
