I haven't seen NP42 in 5.8 mm being sold commercially in the civilian market. As per my information, it is being used by Chinese / other LEAs only but this is not a 100% authentic information. Anyone with authentic information on this???

does a compact variant of the 9mm version exists... something easily carried concealed/// (np 42)

Ethuan dear there is no compact version of np 42 there is a compact version of np 22 and that is np 34. and can you tell me why you so much interested in Np 42 as it is exactly the same as Cf 98.?

@Sparticas: just for the sake of consistency i call it np42. u are right, its same as cf98, though both are produced by different factories. i believe np42/cf98 has got better a agronomic design than the sig clones np34/22
@wasifali89:i wish retrieval of call/sms record had been simpler ;)
