    @ ED...it makes it easier to carry specially if you are considering the appendix carry.... For that you sure need a weapon with not a very long barrel / slide....Appendix carry is becoming more and more common by the day.. I myself am considering carrying the mini that way... Infact I have already been carrying it at either 3 o clock or 1 o clock...

    Few days back, I received a picture of NP42 Mini from our PG member, AK74. According to him, he snapped the photo at a dealer's shop because he noticed a crack in the frame of the subject handgun.
    Now before some of you go berserk and start that Polymer vs Steel frame discussion or start terming the NP42 Mini a piece of junk and all etc, kindly hold your horses. It would be logical to address this incident as one and only of its kind since Mini has hit the market. Right? The purpose of posting the picture is none other than to inform our fellow members to check the frame of each and every handgun; may it be a polymer or steel, new or old, heftily priced or inexpensive, local or foreign made and ensure that you don't make an unnecessary hole in your pocket.

    Stay blessed and safe.

    Cheers

    The Np42, cf98 have the kind of design that there is no pressure exerted directly on the polymer frame...A Steel frame sits inside the polymer frame in which the trigger assembly, hammer and decocker/ safety is installed. A few members shared this picture with me, from the looks of it, I think the frame has cracked due to some other kind of mishandling or it might even have come in defected from the factory... that too could be a possibility.

    Recently, I have viewed YouTube videos posted by Pervaiz Awan, regarding information about weapons popular in Pakistan. He seems to know his stuff.
    The following video shows two CF98 fire-group assemblies, each with multiple cracks, after just 4000+ round count. Please view the last half of the video.

    For that purpose, I am going to do two things....

    1. Comparison of Specifications


    Below is a chart that exhibits the specs comparison of few of the most common preferences of Conceal Carry Pistols in Pakistan. This should give a fair idea about the exact size of the NP-42 mini

    Attachment 37538

    2. A Visual Reference

    Below are some pictures for comparing the size of the Np4-mini with the full frame Kilinc 2000 from multiple angles:

    Attachment 37539

    Attachment 37540

    So the jump to the conclusions, this is going to be easier to carry as compared to the favorite of many, the makarov and those who have been carrying the 709 will hardly have trouble adjusting to a bit heavier and bulkier NP42-mini..


    Brother Give us some comparison size with np42 mini and np42 standard and Makrov

    Well.. I have shot all three at different times. I dont have em with me at this point in time so I cant really give you an exact estimate. However, the mini us the smallest of the three. I can't put the NP 42 in my pocket. But the Mak and the mini Yes. It is smaller than the Mak as well. The mak is a small gun but I live shooting it. Its recoil is a lot less than the recoil of the Mini.

    In terms of recoil The mini really jumps around. I was not able to land good hits on the target. But with the Mak it is almost effortless.

    As for the NP 42. It is not meant for conceal carry and was developed as the side arm of the Chinese army. The Mak was also the side arm of the red army, but it is much smaller than most sidearms developed for the military.

    I have never been a big HK fan...usually too big and bulky, at least the ones we get here.
    I am a big fan however, of both the Makarov and CZ82. The CZ is a great carry gun and very accurate. Can CZ82s be found in Pakistan?

    Shadow is a smooth shooter, haven’t shot much , may 50 or so through the one I have .
    97 seems like a brick , never shot one .

    Trust me Cz97b is a brick that shoots much smoother then a 75b.
