01-04-2009, 10:23 PM
Which one u will choose for SD/HD.and if u need it for CCW too.Just keep in mind that CF-98 is just 10mm longer and 70 grames lighter than NP-34 pistol.one more thing that CF-98 is 15+1 and NP-34 is 13+1 shots.u can also fire +P+ ammo from CF-98.NP-34 is Aluminum alloy frame while CF-98 is polymer frame pistol.NP-34 is actually clone of famous Sig P228 pistol.
post ur comments plz.

i like cf 98

01-04-2009, 11:09 PM
Np 34 :P

01-04-2009, 11:57 PM
My main concern resale and cf98 wins undoubtedly lolz. Both are equal in performance but the no34 being bulky and the grip does not fit my hand so cf98 it is.

02-04-2009, 01:02 AM
i like NP34 and cf 98 both but looks goes for NP-34

02-04-2009, 02:58 AM
cf 98

02-04-2009, 08:08 AM
So,CF-98 is winner so far.come on guys,post ur comments here.

02-04-2009, 08:21 AM
NP-34 is a copy of famous SIG P228, have seen it deteriorated regarding colour. CF-98 is purely of chinese design and able to shot multiple ammunation with more capacity. My vote goes to CF-98.

02-04-2009, 02:40 PM
Although i dont have any of them right now but i had bought CF 98 when they arrived land of pure in early 2006. I have fired Mh77 which is also a Chicom Sig clone. well my vote goes to NP34.

02-04-2009, 03:10 PM
Ahmad,i didnt see this earlier model of CF-98 but newer model has chrome lined barrels.

02-04-2009, 03:13 PM

CF-98 is the winner so far.

14-04-2009, 06:16 PM

18-04-2009, 09:27 PM
Abbas,What is Nauman talking about CF-98 pistol.i couldnt get it.lol

30-04-2009, 01:22 PM
Hi there guyz my vote also goes for CF-98 recently bought it...let me know the right price....i bought it for 45K on 28th April 2009 and have a feeling i got ripped....let me know...

30-04-2009, 01:23 PM
By the way i am from Karachi and bought it from Star Traders if it's not the right price all to avoid going to that bloody bastard...!

30-04-2009, 01:38 PM
If ur cf 98 is norinco brand 45k is too much but but its ok .in 38 and 40 k cf 98 is available in eagle or shaheen brand .norinco is good and 100% orignal and 5k is not too much for orignl pice

30-04-2009, 01:40 PM
I bought it also about 2 months ago for 37k.

30-04-2009, 01:40 PM
45k is not a bad price if you were not aware of its actual value. Helpful PakGunners like OSAM could have gotten u a CF-98 in 37k. So don't worry about it too much. U have been overcharged but not ripped.

30-04-2009, 01:48 PM
i got it for my friend for rs.37 k as well 2 weeks before

30-04-2009, 02:16 PM
Does it have Norinco logo on it? The ones that do have goes for a little higher than their counterparts.

30-04-2009, 05:18 PM
yes it has

30-04-2009, 05:24 PM
Norcs are good guns. Its really hard to decide to pick one. I feel like buying all of them. But NP-34 gets 100 marks for looks.

30-04-2009, 07:35 PM
Norinco pistols r like Lays chips.u will try to get all. ;)

30-04-2009, 08:52 PM
Till now i have only used Norinco TT, of which i am a satisfied customer. About NP42 vs NP-34 i would go with NP42 because many of my friends who have bought have are satisfied with its performance. According to them they have fired loads of rounds on them and it worked perfectly. I have also read it on a forum that NP-42 has less failure rate than beretta 92fs.

30-04-2009, 09:04 PM
NP-42's size and its dull picture on norcinco's official website are hindering its good rating. Balzy you must be having have good terms with norinco. Being their unofficial brand-ambassador in Pakistan, can you tell them to change the pic;)

30-04-2009, 09:16 PM
Hamid,u can see the clear pic if u click on M9/NP42 pistol on their site.that is the same pistol.

02-05-2009, 11:09 AM
Hey there guyz are there any Pakistani copies of CF-98 and NP-42 and are they any good. Plus I was trying to buy some more bullets would Pakistani bullets be ok. See the Chinese bullets in KHI costs 1900 for 50 i.e. Rs. 38 per bullet while the Pakistani bullets costs 1000 for 50 i.e. Rs. 20 per bullet...Advice please.

02-05-2009, 11:48 AM
Atleast use Chinese or POF made 9mm ammo in ur pistol.Darra made ammo can be dangerous for shooter and weapon both.it will also decrease the barrel life of ur firearm.

02-05-2009, 12:19 PM
+1 balazona

02-05-2009, 01:45 PM
Well ive used both chinese and darra ammo in my cf98 but you can see the evident difference when you use both. The darra ammo has a really bad smell and it gives out a thick smoke from the weapon as if it were bbqued lol and sometimes you can feel particles flying out of your gun when you fire. And above all the darra ammo is damn corrosive.

02-05-2009, 08:54 PM
Osam,plz be careful when u fire Darra made ammo through ur CF-98.This Darra made ammo is not safe for ur polymer frame CF-98 pistol.Darra made ammo can explode a polymer frame pistol in Kaboom.

02-05-2009, 09:03 PM
Darra ammo is like a two-stroke rickshaw alot of smoke :D

02-05-2009, 09:06 PM
Lol i dint know that but i think there are qualities and grades in darra made ammo too. Ive been using the better ones lol. Ive fired around a 100 and not even one had problems except smoke and smell.

02-05-2009, 09:07 PM
Factory ammo is always a safe bet.YMMV

06-05-2009, 02:22 PM
In my opinion CF-98 is the best one. becuase of its hand grip. I used both the pistols on range NP34 and CF-98 but i feel that CF-98 is the best.

06-05-2009, 02:33 PM
@al nasit try th np22-np34 with the houge griip.. there is a world of a difference

07-05-2009, 07:15 AM
Acciprone,u r right.i just changed my NP-34 pistol grips with Houge grips and it feels gr8 now.

07-05-2009, 10:41 AM
i have liston from guys to not use darra ammo, but i am using them i dont know of which company but its shell is of luger and other american bullets and they refill it again its doing best and cost 14 per round.(my pistol is also from pesahwer sherpao arms model PK100):)

13-05-2009, 12:58 AM
sorry for being late in voting as many of u know i am still on my training, which has 1 month remaining only now... hope to get home soon,
insha Allah.

vote goes to CF-98. since i bought this gun, i am happy with its performance,

c ya

14-05-2009, 11:24 PM
the quality of cf98 is far much lower then the np 22 as much as i have tested it........a long story if anyone really wants to know........Plus someone might sell me a np 34 with extra grips so my vote is gona go with the np 34,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,:)

15-05-2009, 04:54 PM
CF 98.. if some one gift me..
