Picked up a CZ-82
« on: January 05, 2019, 06:46:16 PM »
Hi guys. I went to a local gun show today here in PA, not looking for anything in particular, but wanting to spend a little of my Christmas bonus on myself. There was a small batch of CZ-82's, all in about the same condition as the one I brought home. 1988 production, 2 mags (1 not original), leather holster, and cleaning rod. $325, plus tax and PICS. More than what I wanted to pay, but prices aren't going down, are they. If it shoots good, it may be a candidate for refinishing.

One small issue needing to be resolved - the safety lever is very sloppy, without a firm click, and does not stay in place. It does function, and does not disengage, but it does concern me that it could easily become disengaged without my knowing it. I did a quick search here, and a thread mentioned a missing hardened ball. I disassembled enough to see the ball is in place, but it doesn't seem to make contact with the lever, nor does the ball have any movement. I'm not sure if it should have movement, but I am sure it should contact the lever. Any help is appreciated.

Thank for the video, Blaiwayw! After watching a bit of it, I know the problem. Parts 35 Safety Latch and 36 Safety Latch Spring are not existing in my pistol. That explains the sloppiness, no doubt. Now to find them somewhere. Any ideas on a source?

Awesome, thanks. I did find each one in stock at different places, but no one had both. I didn't think to check CZ-USA. Order being placed, but I think I will contact the seller and ask for the cost of the parts to be refunded. I think even a surplus gun ought not to have important safety parts missing. What do you think?

  A fair point but I rather tend to lump surplus into the “you takes yer chances” category and consider them to be sold “as is”. I guess it never hurts to ask but unless there was some sort of functionality guarantee, well...
  I do think it’s an excellent candidate for refinishing, however. Get some new springs and bring it back to life!
