Can we get a thread which lists all the CZ82 aftermarket parts / accessories?
(I nominate this to be that thread)
I've had my 82 for awhile now but have recently wanted to tweak it a bit.
Obviously the CZ website sells quite a few parts and accessories.
I've heard the FIST #1
And supposedly this Galco
Please add all the ones you know. I'm sure there are a ton more holsters that will work.
Don't want to throw a tank of cold water on your project, but I am not sure if all that much
is going to be available for the CZ-82. IIRC, it was made by CZ to supply the Czech military
with a substitute for the Russian Makarov, but did use the same cartridge. The 82 was dbl-stack
with a 12 rd mag, whereas the Makarov was sgl-stack with 7 rd mags. The 83 was made to
supply the European and American markets once the USSR died and imports/exports opened up.
As you may know, the 83 is chambered in the Makarov, the .32acp, and the Browning 9mm short (.380).
Czechoslovakia was an independent soul during the Cold War when it came to firearms, much
like Yugoslavia (the Czechs never made or adopted the AK-47; they went with their own VZ-58,
which is not parts-compatible with the AK-47 or 74. The only similarity is that both the 47 and the 58 use 762x39 ammo.
Another difference was that the Czech National Police and most local armed LEOs went to the full 9mm
with the CZ-75PCR. CZ-Brno has been a highly respected F/A factory since the early 1900s.
When the Nazis overran Czechoslovakia in 1938, they had Brno assist in the effort to make the K98k;
some collectors rate the Czech version of the Mauser as high as/ higher than the German product.
Try CZ-USA for CZ 83 parts. Same gun.
