Gentlemen, I see many here are fans of the various TT 33's and the Zastava especially, which is how I found my way over here. Does anyone know the range these are sighted in for at the factory, as mine seems to be sighted in at a distance further than most American shooters consider "combat handgun range" and before I started messing about with my sights, I thought I would try and find out what they are set for from the factory.

I think its 50m

Thank you. That is a bit more than I am used to having my handguns sighted in at. I need to get it down to about 25 or even 20 meters. I am not keen on cutting the sights, but I might install Novak Style 1911a1 sights in it's place.

I often shoot my M57 at 25 feet, and the POAim and POImpact match.

@kf7mjf

Most Serbian (Zastava) 9mm handguns i have seen were all zeroed at 15 meters. so there is a high probability that M57 is zeroed at 15 yards as well.

Regards.

Hi Kf7mjf, welcome to the forums.

I find mine zeroed at 25 M although I have to say that target shooting the gun accurately beyond 15 m is quite difficult. For me with Chinese ammo the groups at 25m are never below 4/5 inches. Was thinking of taking it out for a range day again, will do tomorrow and report back.

next time I take mine out to the range (gravel pit usually) I will have to mark off several areas and find out. Meanwhile, real world experience is much welcomed. I have about 1,000 rounds of old Romanian 1953 surplus ammo, stuff splits each case when it's fired. I think I will buy some new Czech stuff. Sadly US laws keep me from buying Chinese ammo.

Chinese ammo is great.Its cheap and very good.I use Chinese ammo in Tokeravs gladly and love the Chinese ammo in 9*18 Mak.

JonnyC, offhand i don't recall and am too lazy to check it right now. I think it's Romanian. Nasty stuff, I may just pull the bullets and use them in handloads. Nazim, I wish I could buy Chinese ammo in the United States for all the reasons you give, but it is banned from importation.

pistols are usually zeroed at 25M for military use.
