Clark- You say the broomhandle is built stronger than cz-52's and tokarev's can you elaborate more. Is it that broomhandles are built from "solid steel" (laymans terms). for long term durability etc. Hence imported ones from China still in existence after years of possibly being used with the 7.62 Soviet. The cz-52 uses the roller locking system borrowed from the Germans and the Czech's used a heavier loading for them in 7.62 soviet. So are you saying it is; material usage or design or both,with regards to these different guns?
