    Default Holek Bros. CH 29

    Anyone know if any of these were used by the Reich? I know they went to Manchuria, Siam, Ethiopia, etc. Any information on number produced, availability, current value, anything, etc.? Anybody got a bay'net? Sepp

    Very rare and desireable, but none known to be in German service.

    WOW! A nice bunch of Czechs there. I've always had a boner for the Scorpian. What a cool little weapon.

    Default CH/ZH 29

    I received some very helpful information on the ZH 29. They were produced by CZ from 1929-1932 as follows. Year 1929--150 were built, 1930--150, 1931--110, and 1932--100, for a Total of 510.
    Manchuria placed an order for 500, the rest (we assume) were sales-man samples, etc. Only the one order was made for 500 by Manchuria ca. 1932? Too complicated, nevertheless, a stunning rifle. Of these, some (6?) went to Japan, later to be claimed by GI's.

    Many thanks to Fred Honeycutt for all the above information. Stan

    And Wilhelm, maybe you catch a ticket to PRC and find the other 494? You deserve (and badly need) a break!

    Such a futuristic looking rifle it fairly screams "Art Deco" influence in it's flowing lines.
