The only way I've removed Parkerizing is by bead or sand blast, leaves a nice even finish. That is how most parked guns start. Have fun, be safe.

Very, VERY nicely done - that CZ82 looks great!

Now ... take some 600 grit wet-or-dry sandpaper, dip it in water, and go over those grips.  After most of the scratches are wet sanded away, dry them off and spend some time with an automotive cleaner / polish and a cotton cloth.  You will be pleasantly surprised how good you can get the black plastic grips to look with some more time and effort spent on the pistol.  They will really complement the refinish job you did on the metal.    :)

I am planning this same project but I assumed I had to do a total strip of the gun.  If I can do this without full disassembly, it will be MUCH easier!  I am so glad I saw your post!

Your Blueing looks darker and more even than mine turned out.  I did about 4 cycles and was getting frustrated, but then after I stopped and oiled it, it looked much better, but still not as even and dark as yours.  Any hints/tips for a better blueing?

I think the amount of time spent sanding and polishing the metal before bluing helps to make a difference.  And the buffing with OOOO steel wool between coats helps.  Finally, put on as many coats of super blue as you can.  I found that it darkened with each successive coat.

here is a post that I did for the saior Curt website. It shows how I went about refinishing (blued) my cz 82s. The site also has a bunch of other good info on CZ82s

I tried to get in in AIM’s d grade or whatever guns or maybe j&g’s, something like $169 but guns were gone by the time I got to the email.

The days of the $169 CZs are long gone, I'm afraid.
