CZ82 Pistol, 9x18 Makarov, Used in Very Good Condition, Includes Holster
The CZ 82 is a compact semi automatic pistol made
for the Czechoslovakian military with the designation "Vz. 82", "Vz" is
an abbreviation for "vzor", which translates to "model."
Manufactured by the Czechoslovak firm Česká zbrojovka the vz. 82 replaced the 7.62x25mm Tokarev vz. 52 pistol in Czechoslovak military service in 1983. It is a compact, double-action, semi-automatic pistol with a conventional blowbackaction.
This type of action allows the barrel to remain solidly fixed to the
frame, resulting in improved accuracy over pistols with pivoting barrels
(like the U.S. M1911 series). The low bore axis of the vz. 82 provides
for less muzzle rise and quicker follow-up shots. For added convenience,
both the frame-mounted thumb safety and the magazine release are
ambidextrous. The vz. 82 was the first service pistol to feature both
these features. The bore is chrome plated, which gives it three
advantages: longer barrel life, resistance to rust from the use of
corrosive ammunition, and ease of cleaning. Another feature of this
pistol is the use of polygonal rifling in
the barrel bore. This replaces the traditional lands and grooves
rifling design with a rounded, smooth polygonal pattern which has a more
"hills and valleys" appearance.
