I've run across a used CZ-82 in really good shape, two magazines, the ugly holster and all for $300.

While that may be a fair price, still seems a little high. I may come in and offer 250-275. He was originally asking 350, but I think that might be a pipe dream!

Wanting to find a reasonably priced 9mm

It is high IMO. Here's a link to J&G where you can get one with only one mag for $180. Even with shipping and the transfer fee (IF your dealer doesn't charge above the cost to you from J&G) you should come out for less than $225.

There's also Classic Arms at $190 but without the holster.

Add CDNN for about $169-189 (depending on grade)...

Your $300 is just a little high BUT... if it's in real good shape, has TWO mags and a holster, by the time you pay shipping and FFL costs, you'll be real close. If you like the gun, I'd get it!... you're gettin beat, but not real bad!

Thanks for the replies. I've got another post on here about 9mm ammo. Apparently this CZ takes 9x18; is that maybe why the guy is selling it I wonder?

Southern Ohio Gun has had them with 2 mags, 'ugly holster', cleaning rod and lanyard for $159.

Call them Monday, if you want one.

OTW, you're being bent over.

$300 is a bit high even for one in very good condition. I paid $250 for mine but it is in excellent condition.You can get a nice Bulgarian Makarov for less than 300 or even an East German, if you're patient. But, it appears you're after a 9mm which the CZ is not. You are correct in that it fires the 9mm Makarov round (9x18) which is more potent and more plentiful (online) than the .380 ACP.

I bought a "hand-picked" from J&G. It came with one mag and the "good-looking" holster. With an extra mag, two boxes of ammo, shipping, and FFL fees, it came to just over $300.

If it's in really nice shape (like mine was), that price is in the ballpark.

For what it's worth, 9x18 is cheaper and easier to find online than 9x19 these days.

If you have a C&R FFL, you can have one shipped direct to you. :D

I bought mine from a gun store, in OK shape, ambidexterous holster, two mags (thick base), lanyard and plastic box for $225. I wouldn't pay any more for one. The Makarov is a nice alternative. They seem to have a better, less abused finish than the average CZ.

Got mine $200, with holster, extras, 2 mags.

was rough on the finish, but I did a full take down, sanded and polished all the controls, re painted it black, and then sanded and polished the slide flats.

Polished some internals and the trigger is smooth as ice now. Great gun to mess around with.

Mine had the back sight off center, and I have not been able to get it to move to center. Hammer, vise, tried everything. So I might have to take it to a smith with a real sight vise. Just haven't yet. Since I can put all the bullets on paper at ten yards without even using the sights.

All told, my CZ-82 cost me $250. It came from AIM for $209.95 plus shipping. If it had ever been shot, I couldn't tell. Absolutely 100% like new in every respect including the holster, both mags and the accessories. I had to struggle just to get the trigger guard down so I could strip and clean it.

The CZ-82 is a very nice pistol, especially for the money. They can still be found for under $200 but not in new condition. Still a bargain IMO.

Perhaps you are confusing them with their commercial brother, the Cz83?

What is it about "100% LIKE NEW" that you fail to comprehend? Geeeeez.......

They were not sold as "new condition" or "unfired".

Well, you got lucky....

I cannot argue that point at all but others who purchased from AIM in the early months of 2008 may have also gotten "lucky". As I recall, the pistols were listed as "excellent" but I could be wrong about that.

Mine is so nice that I've considered buying another one in a lesser condition just to shoot. I do like the police holsters that some are now being shipped with much better than the military version I have.

one thing about the issue holster,it doesn't look like a holster.you could probably strap one on your hip,and most folks would think it's a case for some kind of test instrument. jwr

My cz-82 was brand spanking new, obviously never issued or fired, and it came from classicarms. Yes, its an 82 not an 83, as its chambered in 9x18 and not 380 ;)

Pics, pics. I'd like to see a new one. Was this a late production date?

I bought two 82's from aimsurplus about 1.5 years ago, and both were either not fired, or fired VERY few times. They looked 100% brand new, and still loook great because I take care of my guns well.

Military pistols don't get fired all that often ( unless there's a war on) you qualify maybe once a year, and I'd bet the communists did less than that

I stripped the paint off one of my 82's sprayed it with Gunkote and baked it in the oven on 300 for an hour and it looks brand new. Also bought a front night sight for a CZ 83 from CZ USA and this gun is good to go. Most of these surplus guns are in great shape, they are just beat up and need a new paint job.

Also having problems with ammo, the Brown Bear is causing keyholing, doesn't happen so much with the silverbear.

I also had one of the 82's blued, doesn't look as good as the black paint.

Here is my CZ 82. The target was fired offhand at 25yds, starting with a six 0'clock hold The first three rounds above the rear sight) and then walking them up the targst till Osama took one between the eyes.
The holster is a Falco, and the grips are by Denis Marschal.
Mine had some wear to the front and backstraps of the grip frame, and the plastic grips were pretty worn.
I just put some cold blue on the wear to darken it.
A great pistol.

I jist sent in for those red grips from the guy in Checlosvikia. Are the wood grips sturdy or crack easily?
