Has anyone seen any VZ 52 mags (7.62x45) with more than 10 rounds? I am guessing that the military would have stuck with the 10 rounders but perhaps there was an after-market mag? Fingers crossed...
Cheers

I have never herd of such mags.. These Rifles were never in Use that long and were A novelty in there own right.. the 7.62x 45 was a real odd ball. personally I thing a 6.5X45 would make a really good modern military round

In 1957 the Vz52s were being converted to 7.62x 39, and after that being replaced by the Vz58, so I would suggest getting proficient with the stripper clips that the ammo was issued in, if you want to shoot it much.

Which begs the question...where does one find the stripper clips? I am reliably informed the SKS stripper clips do not work in it...

Just sold my 52 with about 320 rnds of ammo, half of which was on strippers

Truth be told, I really liked it, hit steel at 100 yards pretty consistently with open sights and older eyes but just didn't shoot her enough.

If you want a longer magazine, have you considered making your own?


Welding two together

Finding a drum magazine for, say, a FAL (aftermarket) and making it mate with a Vz52 mag bits

Haven't shot my Vz52 in atleast 18yrs or so. Mags & ammo are both hard to come by. 10rd mag is all ive ever seen. Parts in general are few & far between. Most(if not all) of the ammo I have for the 52 is 15rd boxes on stripper clips from what I can remember.
"She" gets rotated around the safe but never makes it to the line.

10 round mag is all they ever produced as far as I've seen - for both the Vz 52 and Vz 52/57.
