Dear Members,
Assalam-o-Alikum

I've been on Pakguns for quite sometime now. I was introduced to this knowledge hub of guns by my friend (slayerjatt).

My name is Waqar and I'm a professional accountant by mistake, astrophysicist by passion and currently I'm MBA (Member of Berozgar Association). :D

So, in free time I decided to buy a handgun. I was in process of choosing a gun when I joined Pakguns. Here I was suggested CF98 and upon reading extensively about it, I decided to buy it.

So, here I share with you a few pictures of my new purchase; CF98 with Norinco stamp.

P.S. I'd like to thank Naveed bhai a lot for his kind and helping attitude. Although I couldn't avail his discount offering of 2k but still I really appreciate his behavior. :)

Regards,

Congrats! More than the gun, your photography skills are excellent. Enjoy. :)

A nice gun, indeed, look, is it traditional, or kind of two-tone? I'm not much into Norinco, excuse my ignorance. :)

Its all black. The dull black shade is due to grease/oil/whatever which was in the pack, I think.

One fine day, before buying this gun, I was in market to do price survey and I was surprised to see that Sheikh Salim & Co. was offering this very gun for 45k and came down to 40k. He said that others had non-custom paid guns while his was custom paid. :rolleyes:

What's that? Can anyone enlighten me on this?

I am really proud to be a member of PAK GUNS because I know many of our senior members. They are really king of weapons. I would love to mention one more name Mr. Abbas (with glitter) who has given us the opportunity to be together. May he live looooooooooooong, Happy and Healthy. InshahAllah, Ameen.

LOL, not yet. Will do after consultation with you as I read you also have NP42. :D
And I forgot to answer your question regarding it being a different model of NP42. Well, the info that I've gathered from PG is that the difference between NP42 and CF98 is only of barrel life i.e. NP42's barrel can be used for 10k rounds while CF98's dies after 8k. Apart from that, I'vent heard of any difference.
So, its safe to assume that NP 42 is like Toyota Corolla GLi while CF98 is Corolla XLi. :D

Not much to give between 8k and 10k rounds. Depreciation of our guns will depend on the ammo we use. Use local ammo, and u can write-off the entire amount in the year of purchase and create a provision for a new one ;-).

As for the local CF98, shouldn't it say Made "as" China, rather than Made in China as seen in the pictures?? I remember i saw a local TT-33 which had Made as China engraved on it.

BTW Super bro, what's the difference in price of CF98 and NP42?? Any idea?

So, units of production is the method its going to be. :D
As for price difference, then I think we are not going to know this anytime soon. That's because I searched the market in October and not a single shop had NP42. All offered CF98.

How much did you pay for your NP42 and when you bought it?

doomsday
27-11-2010, 02:41 PM
Super bro,
I bought my NP42 back in 2006, and if i remember correctly, i paid around Rs45,000 for it. About 6 or 7 months after i purchased it, its price dropped to around Rs 37,000. From what you're saying, seems like Norinco has stopped production of NP42 and has replaced it with CF 98.

According to the units of production method, my NP42 has depreciated by about 10%. And after all this usage, its still as crisp as new, so go ahead and shoot to your hearts content, your CF98 will never let you down!!

Super bro,
I bought my NP42 back in 2006, and if i remember correctly, i paid around Rs45,000 for it. About 6 or 7 months after i purchased it, its price dropped to around Rs 37,000. From what you're saying, seems like Norinco has stopped production of NP42 and has replaced it with CF 98.

According to the units of production method, my NP42 has depreciated by about 10%. And after all this usage, its still as crisp as new, so go ahead and shoot to your hearts content, your CF98 will never let you down!!

45k? Now we can get a viking for this amount (ignoring TVoM :p). Well, I'm still not sure if np42 is a different hand gun. May be they have re-named np42 as cf98? Or may be np42 name is for some markets while cf98 for some others?
And I'll start using it at range pretty soon. I hope to enjoy same experience as yours. :)

At the time i bought it, the average price of the pistol ranged from 50 to 55k. The reason was that after many years of restriction on import of small arms, the govt had relaxed that the restriction. The newly imported guns were highly priced, but as i said, after just 6 or 7 months from the time of my purchase, the price dropped to 36 or 37k.

From an accountants point of view, the PV of 45k i paid in 2006 today should be around 75k which would be enough for something very decent. Having said that, the NP42 is good enough for HD and recreational shooting. I may however get a SC in place of the NP.

Thanks for giving a brief info on what happened in past. I wasn't aware of that.
By the way, have you tried concealed-carrying your np42? If yes, then were you comfortable and where exactly did you hang it?

For concealed carry, i prefer Tauras PT909. However i have carried NP42, but mostly in the side pocket of the car door. The NP42 is lighter and thinner but slightly longer, so i dont think it should be a problem carrying your CF98. What you now need is an Inside the Waistband Holster (IWB) preferably of Uncle Mike. Dont go for the local holsters, most have a pouch for an extra mag on outside. That makes it very difficult to conceal and the extra mag adds to the weight.

Carrying a gun is never very comfortable. The best place for me to CC any handgun is on your back with the holster on the inside of your trouser.

Uncle Mike, is not readily available in the market. . I saw one used for around 1500/- at Lucky star . . Karachi. . Though its better to buy uncle mike thing instead of a local one . . And which I saw was for thighs . .

Like Shobi bro said, Uncle Mike always seems to be in short supply in the market. I once had to wait for 2 months until my patience ran out and I got a local one. In case there's still a shortage, get a local holster and cut off the extra mag pouch like i did.

That's pretty neat. I'll be getting another holster soon as I've asked my friend to get one for me. Right now I've exactly the same as yours. If he won't be able to find then I'll chop the present one this way.
