Cz-82

I bought a used (surplus?) CZ-82 from JG in Arizona and have been very pleased with it. Chambered for the 9mm Makarov.

It has been 100% reliable; even with my cast bullet reloads.

Although I could carry it as my CCW, instead it has become the car glove-box gun. In Missouri, anyone (non-felon) can have a glove-box handgun without any permit.

One of the local gunshops has new CZ-83's, which is the same gun chambered for the standard .380.

Your CZ can fire those .380s also.
But not the other way around.

It probably won't shoot them very well. The 380 is .355 diameter. The makarov is a .363 diameter. It is nice to have a bit of interchangeability. Hornady makes critical defense, as well as several other loads for the Mak.

At $9.99/box of 50 9mm Makarov at Acadamey Sporting Goods, why shoot .380 at $12.99/box of 50, why shoot a weaker round with less accuracy in your 82?

The man makes a point. Are you finding 380 for $12.99 at Academy? I can't get them for less than $20 around here. We don't have an Academy.

Academy - Monarch™ FMJ .380 Automatic 94-Grain Pistol Ammunition


Not sure the difference. Maybe FMJ or JHP

Underwood Ammo makes some nice powerful rounds for the 9x18, as well. I stagger their FNHC with the Hornady rounds in my mags for SD , in my PA-63. I plan on picking up a CZ82 once my C&R license shows up !

Good Karma.. My C&R FFL showed up today, 18 days after the VISA card was charged. That's pretty good service from Uncle Sam !!

I have the CZ82 12 round double stack version. Also my car gun. If ammo becomes an issue I have an American made exact replacement .380 ACP barrel. The CZ82 is a great CCW gun. I have handled the CZ America CZ83. They are not nearly as good a gun. The trigger on the one I handled had a rough and extremely long trigger pull. It also has really ignorant safety setup.

Is a barrel change enough or do springs/extractor need to be changed also?
