“A strange thing - but compelling”

Written on: 03/01/2012 by Biker_Bob (17 reviews written)

This is a very odd pistol. Build quality is generally very good, made as it is of blued steel and blacked alloy. The lowest quality parts are the plastic grips which creek and feel a little flimsy and the rear sight which although fully adjustable is prone to a little left and right wobble. The trigger feels very odd, it's a small radius blade with a pivot that's only just above the blade, it doesn't so much pull as rotate around your finger end. The first stage is very long and the second… Read Full Review

My review got cut off!
I was saying that you can get 1 hole groups or a 1" spray depending on your grip style.
Power is less than 2.5 ftlbs so it's ideal for paper punching indoors, no good for HFT.
It's a handsome pistol and always draws a crowd at the club, parts are no longer available, but it's easy enough to make a new leather piston seal and breech seal if required.

Written on: 19/01/2008 by hfs (16 reviews written)

I bought my Predom Lucznick from a military surplus firearm dealer in Ft. Worth, Texas in August of 2007 while traveling. As of last check in January 2008, they quit offering it. Perhaps another shipment will come in someday.

My pistol is cast with the year 1970 on the "receiver" and stamped 1974 on the barrel breech. It came with a holster and cleaning rod all for $50. It is good condition with minor scratches in the black paint on the receiver/grip assembly and some bluing wear on the cocking… Read Full Review

Managed to find one - 1975 model three days ago. Good condition well lubricated, but a bit of moly grease on the main ssprings and cylinder smoothed it out.
<br/>
<br/>Cocking is stiff 35 - 40 lbs but the trigger is worse. I use both index fingers to release mine - which I snatch rather than squeez, but one reviewer calls his trigger light. What is the secret.
<br/>
<br/>Oddly enough at 8 yds even with this impossible trigger I canstill get decent groups - its obviously a well balanced gun and opening up the rear sight notck by 2 mm has improved it for me

My trigger is fairly light, too. The only thing I can think of is the piston release link from the trigger may be worn. You'll probably have to disassemble the pistol to see if you can clean it up with polishing or a file.
<br/>
<br/>Getting the link back in place with its spring in the correct location is really tricky, but can be done with a few attempts and patience. It is possible that this might be your problem, too. If the spring under the piston release link is in the wrong location, you pretty much can not pull the trigger. Perhaps with a lot of force it could be done, but I haven't tried that.

I bought mine from a surplus dealer for about $50. My example looks good, shoots great. What more could one want. A friend who's better with tools than I, is making a set of wood thumb rest grips for this pistol. I'm planning on buying 1 or 2 more of these fine pistols before they are gone. If you hate plastic as I do, get one while you can… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2007 by vladzakh (3 reviews written)

I was able to get this airpistol for 85 dollars, what I think is unbelievable for a gun of such kind of quality. The recoil is very strange at first because of unusual design, and it requires some practice to get used to.
After 100-200 shots the gun shoots as a real target pistol should do one hole from 10 meters. My specimen was built in 1974 and still a very good shooter. Well, quite honestly I bought 3 pistols from a online gundealer which were advertised as in good conditions. Apparently… Read Full Review

“The Predom Lucznik .177 is a 1970's Polish copy of the...”

Written on: 25/11/2005 by Carter59 (6 reviews written)

The Predom Lucznik .177 is a 1970's Polish copy of the well-known Walther LP53. How it compares to the original I don`t know, but the Lucznik is a good pistol in its own right.

Rugged all steel construction with comfortable plastic grips, with a good feel and balance in the hand. The Lucznik is a break-barrel cocker, but the spring and piston are located inside the grip, which helps dampen any recoil. The trigger is a really nice light one-stager, finely adjustable with a predictable let-off… Read Full Review

It's a poor copy of the Walther LP53. Try to get the real thing. Please read my review on the LP53.

What a crock review! Plastic grips are sharp and uncomfortable. Power is anemic. If you can get one to shoot 350 fps with a 7 grain target pellet that is "quite powerful" for these pistols. I have seen several examples of these, and they shoot between 275 fps and 310 fps over an honest chronograph!!

Target accuracy? Yeah if you are shooting at a 2" bull at 10 meters. Rested, the best of four examples I shot was 3/4 inch 5 shot groups. Rest were 1.25" to 1.75" for 5 shots. And other target guns I have rested print .25" one hole 5 shot groups for me, so it is not the shooter.

These guns have tons of tooling marks all over, including the exterior. The piston tube on the inside has large tool marks completely covering it. The outside has small tool marks and scratches, but is chrome covered so much smoother. The inside of the grip, which is the piston cylinder is very rough. You simply cannot smooth it to any degree without removing metal.

This gun is a curiosity, noting more. Nice to collect just to say "I have one", but hardly target quality.

As Hpaw says, if you want the real thing, get the Walter LP53. This thing shoots, should be fairly sturdy, but is really good only for short range plinking.

Could you rate the "light" trigger against that of an HW 45 or a Beeman P17 or a Webley Tempet please ?

Light trigger ??? Mine needs both index fingers to release it. Adjusting screw makes litle difference. All well (moly) lubricated. What is the secret ?

Boris,

Agreed! Adjustment is ONLY for length of first stage pull. NO affect on actual pull weight. The four examples I have tested all are between 5 pounds and 8 pounds on my trigger pull gauge. Kept the best one at 5 pounds, sold the others. Did smooth the trigger components on the one I kept. Still breaks at 5 pounds, but is smooth and crisp at least. Feels lighter, but the gauge don't lie!

Guess it all depends on what you collect. I purely collect pistols used by police or military forces. Since the Polish pistol is military and the LP53 is not...it is junk in my eyes. I'd have more pride owning a military piece than civilian.

You are joking, right? Polish is a "military" pistol? What did they use it for? Shooting killer mice at 5 feet? Calling the LP53 junk vs the Predom is like calling the Hope diamond "junk" vs a $50 Wal Mart special! The Predom is indeed a fun and interesting piece to own. But if anyone wants to sell me an LP53 for a reasonable price, email me at alltbnow at gmail dot com.

I totally agree with your review. Think of the pride in owning the real thing! If you like, I can sell you my LP53 for £190. It would be nice to compare the difference for yourself. Also I predict the LP53 to become a highly collectable gun in the future. It's even been featured in the Playstation game 'From Russia with Love'.

Alas my budget will not stretch to one, they are rare beasts here in UK. Also not much of a James Bond fan :-)
Of course the LP53 is a better pistol......the point of my review was that the Lucznik is a fun and interesting piece in its own right.

Today, in 2013 Walther LP 53 are very expensive. Predom-Lucznik price still very acceptable. I am from Belgium and I have two Predom-Lucznik Wz 70. Fo spare part, I think I could have them within one month but I still need to buy the defects guns in case of interest by other owners.

Here in 2014 in the Usa you can still buy an average Predom specimen for $80 - $100. A pristine one in super excellent condition might bring $150. Not seen any like this, though.
