THE ZASTAVA M57 LUX is a rare version of the serbian 9 bullets holding .30 caliber ZASTAVA M57. The word LUX obviously stands for "Luxury". Thus it is an updated version of one of the best of TT's ever made. It is chromed by default and has a very nice looking special plastic/rubber grip instead of the traditional hard plastic ones, and seen from distance, it has got the looks of a 9mm handgun. Only when zoomed in, you observe the lines of the TT, yet the gun is really worth looking at, not to say worth having in TT lover's collection. As you know the Zastava M57 was a regular sidearm of the army of the former Yugoslavia. What I like most about the Zastava, apart from the certain different lines and grooves on the top-side, which you don't see on the chinese version, is actually the rock solid grip on the gun, owing to increased length of the magazine. This is especially beneficial for small and medium sized hands, coz the magazine protudes from your handgrip on the lower side and you can hold the gun more solidly. However, back to the LUX version. I once in Germany saw this gun displayed in a weapons show, and lately found it again on the net. Have asked various dealers about its availability and even requested for special order import, before I finally went for the 9mm, but the dealers over here did not even know about its existence. Has anybody ever come across this handgun? I repeat M57 LUX, not the traditional black Zastava M57. You can google it up with searchword ZASTAVA M57 LUX and find a few beautiful pics of this good looking TT. Comments.

Good Osam. That's the one I was talking about! I have seen it for real and prayed these dealers to book it for me, but they complain lengthy ordering procedures from Serbia.

So guys, you appreciate my 'find"? Look, even GLXSPK wants a TT! A Sure buy for TT lovers. GLXSPK... look out for it over there in Karachi, they got variety, and with your contacts you may even be able to special order a few of these all the way up from Serbia! Book me one, too. Wonder where Balazona is, still no comments from Mr. Norinco. Perhaps, he would like to become Mr. Serbia, now!

Inquired about Zastava from local dealer.He said very soon they will be available here. Ka_khan Sir, which one you inquired about? Zastava M57, the black one, is available with a dealer friend of mine, 3-4 pieces, pin-packed. If you inquired about this one, the Lux version, plz let us know, when it would be available.

@Ak47, what is the price of the M57 model?

I would be interested in the LUX version.

AK47
21-04-2009, 09:17 PM
Balazona, Osam.... I am surprised to find the rate listed in our prices section at 28k. Up till two weeks ago, he offered me@ 33k, saying a little bit could be reduced. Yet, Pakgun prices section has listed it at 28k. I don't know, who is right?

Ka_Khan
21-04-2009, 09:25 PM
Pak Guns is right ! One i saw was @27000.

AK47
21-04-2009, 09:38 PM
At 27k it should be a sure buy for those wanting a TT, much better in every aspect than the chinese, which by the way is short in the market and listed higher priced. I would still wait for the LUX.

I saw the Zastava myself for 28 K, beautiful pistol but one day I plan to request Ka_Khan to get a Stainless Steel one built for me with Norinco or Serbian parts. :cool:

Nice project...just tell when to start collecting pieces for it.Inquired last week about imported barrel of .30.It was @8000.

Balazona
22-04-2009, 09:40 PM
Ka_Khan,it was imported from where?China or some where else.

25-04-2009, 02:09 AM
Btw, I asked a dealer today to do his best to get me this gun and even offered I was willing to pay him 45k for it, regardless of what price he would get it for! Perhaps overquoted it, but how much far did I go? Would 45k be a right price for the Lux, when the standard M57 is for 28k? I mean this is a rare, if not to say barely non-existing one in Pakistan!

29-04-2009, 01:56 AM
Well it wouldn't be rare if it comes once :) These dealers usually import handguns in large nos and the same guns are available in all the markets throughout the country.

AK47
29-04-2009, 01:58 AM
Yeah, but this one yet remains to be seen! Even in Serbia, it is rare!

Please do inform me too, if you ever find it in the local market.

29-04-2009, 10:13 AM
You're welcome! However, there is vague chance for this gun to become available, unless we, I mean all Pakgunners wishing to have it, make one common order of several pieces, say 8-10, and ask one of the more recognized importers to special order it for us. By this way, he perhaps would like to import some 5-10 pieces for himself too, totalling a reasonable quantity for special order import. The gun would also then get introduced in the market. I really doubt this model has ever been imported before.

I remember coming across this on the net last year. It really is beautiful and the rubber grips would enhance comfort to a great degree. I checked and unfortunately you guys are right, it is not being imported currently to Pakistan.

Nice looking M57, the chrome finishing looks awesome... though can't be sure if the gun is a LUX, which has rubber grips and an overall different kind of finish.

Looking at the pics, I can see that its very much possible for making a unique conceal carry rig for the Tok...

dear friends, promise is a promise, even if i am a little late ...

i found the place in belgrade, serbia, where rubber grips for m 57 still can be bought.

the name of the shop is ?snajper?, in street masarikova in belgrade, and you can
contact them by phone 00381112646064.

the price for the grips is 850 RSD ( serbian dinars ), which is now about EUR 9 ( NINE, NOT NINETY ! ).

manufacturer of the grips maybe do not exists any more, i am not sure in that,
because there not much of this grips left in stock, and only place where i found them
is ?snajper? shop.

i beleive it would be difficult to send grips to your country, but first try to ask them
if you are interested, and if you not find the way, maybe i could help about it,
which i can not promise now.

great regards from serbia.

Well, it would most likely be no problem to receive these by mail, unfortunately, like Sir Denovo, I too have nowhere to put these grips on, but sure I'd like to have a pair from you! :)

is there a way to send a private message to each others ?

also. i would like to make a comment on this pictures of serbian tt.

first, this what is called lux on zastava´s site is just one of versions that can be
done in factory it self.
for something like that you tell to custom workshop in factory your demands, and they
do or not to this, if they do not have possibility...that is because demands from various
clients can be more than impossible to be done in reality.

there is no such thing like series of lux version, chrome plating, nickel, gold,
high brite blued steel, paint, anodizing, changes in shape like combat trigger guards,
ventilating rails, sport triggers and hammers are always done on personal request,
and this imported in pakistan models are just result of request of your importer.

this is not rear version of m 57 is serbia, in serbia you can easily find workshop
when you can customize your weapon as you like, of course, it has to be legally
registered weapon.

for this level, seen on pictures of our friend rated_r i can say that it is basic
commercial chrome plating probably from factory it self, and it can not cost in serbia
more than eur 50.
for more demanding polishing and/or sandblasting of metal surface, and chrome plating,
cost may rise up to eur 100, but not more than that.

so, my opinion on this comment about prices in your country and your dealers
is that they charge you for simple chremed finish really to much, and i would never pay
for it so much. i would rather find workshop that can do this job and do it there.

do not get my words wrong, i am just trying to protect from paying price for
something that i think is not fair.

regards from belgrade, and try to find the way to make possible to make here
sending personal messages, it would be a good way to help you about this grips
if you are really interested.
as you see, those that are left are more than cheap, only problem is distance
and way of sending it.

that is the reason why i wrote the phone number of the shop, if you try to contact them
directly, i find that it would be in their interest to find the way to send it to you.

Thank you Mr. Luger for your time and valuable comments..
I couldn't agree more because you are absoultely right.
I got my M57 for free because its a gift from a very dear friend of mine and he imported these from Serbia by himself. He also made these silver versions on request directly from the manufacturer and there is no such thing LUX according to him too. I tried to pay for this beautiful gift but he said "first its a gift and second its not that expensive as you think". :)

i will also try to make understand some more things.

now i do not know the number of zastava´s pistols in your country,
and the number of the grips for m 57 in belgrade,
but...

...any company that can do export, in the case that ?snajper? is not interested,
can buy from snajper all those left grips.
they can sell it to some importer to pakistan, where it should be wise to sell
at least for eur 1 ( ONE ) by piece more. in other case it can be difficult to explain
to tax inspectors why this is done, if company has not earned anything on it.

all formalities about export from serbia, i mean on documents that follow shipment,
are not more than eur 100, if it complicates in any way we can count count eur 150.

packing of shipment of grips could be, i suppose eur 20.

transport to the airport also eur 20.

handling in airports warehouse and keeping it till the flight also about eur 20.

i forgot that maybe we should add 18% of tax on the price of grips, because one
company first have to buy them before exporting it, which make the price for grips
about eur 12,90 by piece.

the greatest cost of air transport i can not give now, because we do not know
size and weight of the shipment, but obviously more pieces in package,
all costs by piece will be smaller.

this could be some legal way to import grips to pakistan, as you see, it is not so simple,
but it is possible.

other way is to send shipment by boat, but this small package in that case should
be placed in boat container ( nearest ports that can do this are: bar in montenegro,
rijeka in croatia, koper in slovenija, or thesaloniki in grece ).
because big containers are sealed and shipped when they are filled with goods,
and they are in other countries, time for delivery in this way can be very long,
and it can costs more than sending the shipment by plane, although in first
thought it seems cheaper by sea.

organize with each others, and import to pakistan anything you like,
small shipments from anywhere are send on the same principle.
difference can be more or less just in details.
those informations are not just for serbia.

:)

I think that I can not accept foreign payment as person, that is why i told you

Company that is selling grips can accept Your money and try to organize shipping.

Pakistan has embassy in Belgrade, if You address me on someone in there,
I maybe find the way to help You about this.

Zastava arms Serbia modify and improve our Zastava M57 handgun with additional safety and high capacity double stack magazine for Pakistan market due to high demand of .30 caliber 7.62x25 the people come back to TT again instead of any 9mm handgun
The only reason to going famous 9x19 or 9mm is due to modified safeties and from different designs from different manufacturers in high capacity handguns but there is no camparison with .30 caliber

Btw, it's not only the higher capacity in 9mm's or the larger variety in 9mm handguns, that make us choose the 9mm over the TT!!

They're plenty of other factors as well!!
