I have been singing the praises of this handgun for a few years now, including on this site. The CZ 82 is most likely the best buy in a hi quality handgun today period. Hard to believe the BATF was petitioned and made this gun a Curio and Relic eligible firearm since it’s a modern DA, 12 round cap. handgun with a polygonal rifled barrel. CZ still makes the .380 version the CZ83 and it sells for around $450. CZ's in general are great handguns. I own 3 of these fine handguns and purchased them all with my C&R FFL for less than $200 shipped to my door.
As far as the 9x18 makarov round, its a bit move powerful than the
.380 and the ammo (Russian steel cased and brass cased) can be found at many online vendors like AIM, J&G, SOG, Classic Arms, Midway and Sportsman’s Guide, and its a good bit cheaper than 9x19 or 9x17/ .380).
$230 is not a bad retail price for a good example and almost all now imported are in great mechanical shape. Holsters for the Bersa .380 and the PPK series usually will fit the gun.
Do a search here and you will find several other posts with info about the CZ82. The CZ82 served as the front line sidearm of the Czech military and police for many years and is extremely tough and reliable. being an all steel pistol it is a bit heavy for its size but thats why its so strong.
