At one time I owned 5 of em. but I let my friends talk me out of 2 of them.
I think they were the best bang for your buck, back when ya could get them

There is a Makarov in the pic for good measure.
I have a 82 I bought from Wideners a couple of years ago and would like to get it refinished. Anyone had this done and can you lead me to good work for a good price. I only paid $220 for it so I don't ant to sink a lot in it. I was thinking maybe a hard chrome refinish.
Most of you guys did well with some decent finishes still on your guns. I got a CZ82 that looked awful and the marking that Century arms did on it made it even worse. I stripped all the paint of and cold blued it to hold me over until i can put a nice ceracote or similar finish on it. My grips both have a chip right at the safety lever. not the prettiest gun i own but one of the best dang shooting ones i have. great groups and runs very well.
I got my 82 as a U-Fix-Em from Century for $129. The ad said complete but "needs repair", so I took a chance. The only thing wrong with it was the hole that holds the left grip screw to the frame was wallowed out and the grip would fall off. I got a set of grips from a guy online who sold them to me for $10. He had painted them with pickup bedliner paint, which gave them a softer feel and a very nice look. It is very accurate but a little picky about ammo. Shoots Silver Bear all day long, but Wolf will fail to eject at least once per magazine. There is some holster wear, but a great find for $139 plus shipping.
