    Default ceska zbrojovka-narodni podnik strakonice conversion to 9mm

    Did they make a ceska zbrojovka-narodni podnik strakonice conversion for a 7.65 to 9 mm? Maybe a barrel change out?

    Thanks

    A buddy brought it over last night, he had just bought it. It was a CZ but I couldn't see a 27 or anything on it besides 7.62 and a small 49 just under the barrel. He figured it shot 9mm and when we took it a apart and put a 9 mm in the chamber it fit well, a little wiggle. I do not know much about these guns, Soviet occupation/Warsaw Pack, etc. and was hoping someone could tell me if it was common to re-barrel these. Another interesting thing was the end of the barrel was threaded as if to accept a silencer?

    Thanks for your help

    The Vz22 and Vz24 were manufactured in .380 (917 Browning Short).

    It must be noted that both Vz.22 and Vz.24 pistols were too complicated and somehow insufficiently reliable, due to the fact that rotary barrel locking system, which was originally devised to fire 919 Luger ammunition, was not really necessary to fire noticeably less powerful 917 Browning Short ammunition, which at the time was standard for Czechoslovak army.

    In 9mm

    Collectors generally refer to rifles as VZ and pistols as CZ. VZ is simply the abbreviation for Model and I think the CZ refers to the maker. It keeps the confusion down, as there is a VZ24 rifle and perhaps other similarity's.
