Nice review, but I don't think there is a lack of quality holsters.

Good job!


When you get around to testing that Spanish 1916 Mauser, try putting some DAG plastic ammunition through it (available from SOG for around $8/50 IIRC). I did a brief review (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=554286) of this combination here on THR. It's a bunch of cheap fun!

I'm looking forward to your review on the M57 and P64 as well. I very much like mine.

Appreciate the responses, thank you. Going to change the format a bit, and add more gun reviews in the coming weeks. I've been really busy the last few days, and in the coming weeks.

Very nicely done, although I have a couple disagreements. 1. 9x18 is anything but difficult to find. About the only place you CAN'T find it is walmart. Any gun store, any online ammo distributor has it, always (and they had it even during the ammo shortage), and always for cheaper than 9mm luger. and 2. there are tons of holsters that work for the cz-82, you just have to know what they are. look for bersa thunder, walther pp or ppk, browning BDA, or Kahr K9/K40 holsters. they all fit.

CDNN has used police holsters for the CZ82 for under $10.00. They are extremely well built.

One of those came with my CZ-82. It's a very solid holster, but bulky. For an open carry holster, absolutely, but for concealed carry, not so much.

Holster wise, get one for the beretta/browning mid frame .380's. it will fit like a charm.

Holsters are easy to find if you know what you are looking for

A thing you missed is the rifling example is mislabeled, you have them swapped.
Also a Con, is that it's a complex pistol with some really PITA steps to reassemble.

I don't understand, what's hard about it?

Field stripping is easy, BUT replacing/repairing the slide release, the spring is difficult to install, and the Sear/Hammerblock are both tensioned by the same spring, located under the ejector, that has to slip into this little channel, OR you aren't tensioning the sear, this is one of the most common problems with the gun, so if you know what it is, and you have a gun with sear trouble (anything from trigger issues like DAO to it going FA)

You can literally fix it with a $2 part and an hour of work, all you need is a third hand and the patience of Mother Teresa.

Best gun in its niche without the price point. Get some dark wood grips (think cherry) and call it a day.
