Where can I find a decent CZ 82 or 83 (9x18) to buy?(
« on: March 20, 2020, 04:01:16 AM »
Hi,

I've searched all over the Internet looking for a VG condition CZ 82 or 83 in 9x18. And I've found a few. But I just can't see paying $400 - $500, and even more for one.

I've seen some real dogs for under $300, but they have had flaking finishes, gouges, scratches, broken grips, no mag(s) and so on.

I have a single rule for buying firearms. I won't pay a price for a gun that would make me feel stupid paying it. And I'd feel like an idiot paying $500 for a CZ 82/83.

I can't put up a "Want to Buy" post in the classifieds because I don't have the requisite 25 posts to do it. And I'm not going to waste a lot of bandwidth here posting a bunch of nonsense stuff to get to 25 posts.

Do any of you folks know a good source for a VG condition, reasonably priced CZ 82/83?
If so, please message me where to go so I can buy one.

Thanks,

Mickey

CZ 83's currently aren't cheap and readily available - not sure on the 82's.
Depending on the caliber they can be pricey, with .32acp the highest.
Mine is European surplus, and nothing to write home about.
It was all I could find and $400. Refinishing, wood grips, [2] extra magazines and misc. added $350.
The holster and double magazine pouch added another $100.
You may easily be at the $500 mark.

I picked up mine (CZ82 9mm MAK) at a gunshow. There is usually at least one vendor at every gunshow carrying surplus pistols. I paid $325 out-the-door. It was not pristine, it had holster wear, and scratches in the finish (no gouges in the metal) and worn grips, but it shoots like a dream. I had it professionally refinished and put new walnut grips on it. It has rapidly become a favorite at the range and on my hip.

These days with everyone and their idiot son desperate to buy anything that shoots I think you'll have to settle for whatever you can get. Gun stores and wholesalers are pretty well picked clean and sold out due to panic buying. Sorry...

What is the feedback on the CZ83? Is it a must-own for CZ fans? I have been tempted myself given the old-school attributes and that it is getting scarce to find.

Put a WTB add on armslist.com in your local. I sold my CZ 83 .32 acp on it, but then regretted selling it and ended up buying another one on this site with a WTB add. Alot of people looking at that site don't even know about this site.
