    I recently had a CZ82 land in my lap. I literally knew nothing about them. So I started doing my homework and all I can say is WOW!
    What an absolute gem of a side arm. My absolute new favorite. Mine came without a mag so I ordered up a 3 pack for $78 and 250 rounds for $99. Best part is once all is said and done ill only be in 275 total. I can't wait to try it out. Glad to be part of the forum.
    Topics I would like info on would be .... Stripping and refinishing options and techniques as well as grip options. Pretty sure this gem will be my carry.
    Id like to find the holster and cleaning rod too. Anyone have a line on one let me know.
    Thanks again and I'm looking forward to be part of the CZ community.

    Welcome to the group!

    I have the CZ-82, but mine came with a great finish, and a nice leather duty holster.

    The CZ-83 holster will almost fit the 82, many companies list one but not the other. The difference is the front of the trigger guard, so form fitted units have issues sometimes.

    The Desantis 032 will fit. There are others.


    As for stripping and refinishing and grips...Durakote seems to be a favorite

    Sandblasting with light media is a good way to remove the enamel.

    congrats!
    I had an 82 and it is a sweet gun. Good size and weight, decent caliber. Way complicated inside though; its like working on an antique clock. I thought I would never get it back together :p

    I sold the 82, only because I like my E.G. makarov so much better and making ammo to feed both was too much labor. If you get a chance to try a good makarov, you might love those as well. Its one of my favorite designs of all time -- just a few parts, super simple, reliable and accurate all day long.

    Check out marshal grips for it sometime if you want to pretty it up.

    I'm a big fan of cerakote over durakote
    I have used the oven cure cerakote on 5 of my guns with great results and is much more wear resistant than durakote but with all gun coatings to be successful it's all about the correct preparation dont skip any step!
