    Choosing between Norinco NP 22 and Np 42 ?

    Dear Friends, If I were to make a choice between the two pistols and my priority was accuracy at 25 m, how would you comment? I d appreciate if someone can through some light , as this information about the two is quite scarce on the net. thanks

    Sir just read the accuracy results of both guns in the following thread.

    BTW finish of NP-42 is much superior to NP-22

    Dear Azam Agha bhai i ll agree with Sir Sqnldr Shairq that finish of NP-42 is much superior to NP-22, as i own one Np-42 and got the chance to closely moniter NP-22 so as far as your priority is concerned would suggest NP-42. Np-42 has rotating barrel system and Np-22 is Breach block, 2ndly Np-42 is very much lighter then NP-22.
    and if still you like the looks of Np-22 then go for Cz 999 Scorpion, a very classic handgun and look like Np-22 in a very better shape and finish.

    and dear don't get confused with CF 98 and NP 42 as both are the same thing with a lil more barrel life of the later...

    Dear Azam As i own both pistols and had tested both them on rage for range purpose NP22 is much reliable and accurate as compare to NP42 which is more into conceal carry as this is my personal experience and no offense to any PG brother

    Azam Agha Sir,
    IMHO, pluses and minuses of CF98 and NP22 are as following; (I don't think that NP42 is available and even if it is avaialable, it is absolutely the same thing as CF98. The barrel life story, IMHO, is due to error in printing or something like that otherwise both pistols are exactly same, manufactured by Cheng Feng). :)

    - NP22 is a Sig P226 clone. CF98 is an original Chinese design.

    - CF98 is comparatively more accurate out of the two. That is primarily because of a rotating barrel mechanism that CF 98 has.

    - NP22 is more reliable. I have never experienced even a single stoppage in well over 500 rounds that I fired with 3 different NP22. Conversely, I have experienced around 25 stoppages in more than 2500 rounds that I fired with six different CF98. The reason, in my view, is again the rotating barrel mechanism in which feed ramp is partially located on the barrel / breach and partially on the connector. Any mis-alignment of feed ramp on connector with the portion of feed ramp on the breach causes FTF. This is not very frequent but keeps happening after every 100-200 rounds at an average. Chances are more when the gun is not clean or with non-standard ammo such as JHPs with wider nose.

    - NP22 is more robust. It has a steel slide with alloy frame. CF98 has a polymer frame. Most parts of NP22 are ruggedly constructed with lots of metal in it whereas CF98 is comparatively delicate.

    - CF98 is lighter in weight. NP22 is a little heavy. Both weapons are not suitable for conceal carry.

    - Price wise, both are more or less the same nowadays, ie, around 32-33K.

    - Both have a very average trigger. CF98 trigger is on the lighter side but is inconsistent. NP22 trigger is slightly on the heavier side and is again inconsistent. So in trigger quality, both are quite mediocre.

    - Both pistols are not at all ammo sensitive and fire all types of ammo without a problem (incl POF, Chinese, Russian etc). NP22 is comparatively more reliable.

    - Both pistols have a manageable recoil.

    - NP22 has wider sights which are good for combat shooting. CF98 sights are a little narrower which are not really great for combat shooting / rapid fire.

    - NP22 magazine is far better than CF98.

    - Both have reasonably good grip. In NP22, lot of customization options are available. CF98, being a polymer frame, has limited options (only hogue grip etc).

    - Overall, I would rate NP22 a shade better than CF98 in my personal assessment, but the difference is not much. However, it would differ from person to person, depending upon an indls preferences.

    Happy buying :)

    The NP22 can be outfitted with the special full wrap-around grips Hogue makes for the Sig P226. I have only held an NP22 customized as such, and the feel is even better than the regular Hogue Handall, if that's possible...
