The Zonda C22 is an Argentine pistol.

History

The Zonda C22 is a pistol manufactured by Armotor S.A., a company formed by former HAFDASA employees after HAFDASA went bust, and is also the only known weapon produced by said company. The Zonda was designed by former HAFDASA employees, and as such, resembles some older HAFDASA designs, though with some refinements. The Zonda did not sell well and production was quickly stopped.

Design Details

The Zonda is heavily based on the HAFDASA Criolla .22 Long Rifle pocket pistol, and as such, heavily resembles the Criolla. When compared to the Criolla, the Zonda has certain improvements over the Criolla, such as a different barrel and new iron sights. Both weapons use 10-round magazines. Two versions of the weapon were offered for sale; one with a 70mm (2.75 in) barrel and one with a 175mm (6.89 in) barrel. The "ambidextrous" function on the Criolla, where turning the bolt allows the spent casing to eject to the left or right of the shooter, was removed on the Zonda.
