    Does anyone have any insights into what C&R handguns can be expected over the next few years? Will there be other more modern guns such as the CZ-82?

    Has to be 50 years old to get C&R status.

    And, it's not some process or anything, a gun is a C&R automatically once it's 50 years old.

    From the ATF:

    No idea if they take submissions for adding to the list of if they just do it on their own.

    Not so. It has to be at least 50 years or deemed C&R eligible by the ATF, unless the CZ-82 is 50 years old.

    True that the 50 year rule isn't the only way, but it's more rare to see one less than 50 years old make the list. Usually it's because something similar is already there like the SKS variants that have been added to the list or some kind of limited edition commemorative thing.

    The exact methods are:

    I don't see how the CZ 82 meets any of the qualifications/specifications that BATFE has established, yet it is a C&R pistol. I'd love to know how that happened. Somebody had to propose it to BATFE...I wonder who did it.

    CZ82 was granted C&R status cause some museum (forgot which one) petitioned the BATFE to add it to the list.
    BATFE read the petition and granted the CZ82 C&R status.

    West Point's museum curator. In other words, you've gotta have some clout to send in a request; joe schmo can't do it.

    If you google the CZ-82 and add some specifics you will pull up a number of threads praising him, I to forgot his name.
