    Zastava is coming out with a new pistol in the next 6 to 8 months.
    The Zastava PPZ will feature a polymer frame, interchangeable back strap and an extended Mil-Std-1913 rail that will run the entire length of the slide. The gun is designed from the ground up around the .45ACP caliber, but 9x19mm version is also expected along with a .40 S&W version. It is expected that the design will be modular requiring only the barrel, recoil spring, magazine and possibly the extractor to convert the gun from one caliber to another. There are unconfirmed rumors that the pistol will also be available in 7.62x25mm Tokarev caliber. It is estimated that the magazine capacity in .45ACP caliber will be 14 rounds, 15 rounds in .40S&W caliber, 17 or 18 rounds in 9mm (based on capacity increases prototyped in Zastava CZ 07 / M-07 prototype), while in 7.62x25mm the capacity is estimated to be 20 rounds.
    The Zastava PPZ is in the final stages of design, undergoing reliability testing as of April 2013.
    Damn 20 rounds of 7.62x25mm in a modern pistol I won’t one.
