    It's a bit heavy, but a well designed, accurate reliable weapon.

    I think for what it is, it is a bit heavy, although it has a higher capacity than most other pistols of its caliber.

    CZ makes fine weapons, and the 82's are probably one of the better deals out there these days for semi-auto pistols.

    I'd have no problem carrying one for a defensive weapon. Not sure what kind of availability there is for Makarov defensive ammo. If you can find a reliable HP round that it will feed consistently it should give you a little better punch than .380. Might check out Silver Bear ammo.

    AimSurplus currently has the Silver Bear HP ammo, at not too bad of a price. Don't know about how well it feeds or anything else, they also have 82's for about $220.

    I carried a CZ83 (w/PT Nites) in .380 (Hydra-Shocks) then a CZ83 in 9mm MAK (Hornady XTPs) before the RAMI was developed.

    One particular dark night in Idaho. We had a bunch of family show up, and I gave up my bed in favor of sleeping in the 5th wheel that was located in the work shop lot some 1/4 mile away.

    I took my dog and my CZ83 in .380.

    Was awoken at nearly 3 AM by some vehicles. They were Deputies in search of an escaped prisoner.


    I'm sure that the See-Zed and 13 rounds of JHP aboard (with a spare mag from my pocket ) would have sufficed if I had to shoot that night, or any night.

    I carry one now, IWB. Completely reliable. Very accurate. Points like a finger. Ammo is easier to find than .380.
    My wife bought it for me as a present, and I just used it as a range gun till I sold my other pistols. Now it's my daily.
    Even as I buy other primary sidearms again, I'm sure it will stay in the rotation.
    The only minus is having to thumb the hammer down to carry it DA/SA.

    Great to see that they make non-Import self-defense ammo for the gun with brass!

    They are fantastic pistols for the money! More potent than a .380 and hold plenty of ammo that's still available at a decnt price. I have 2 on order!

    If you need a holster call Eric at HBE Specialty LW's. He's a CZ fanatic and his Pro TL is just the ticket for this model.

    You won't regret buying it!

    If your interested in after market grips, check out this guy:

    Marschalgrips.com

    Good price and excellent service. I have his grips on my CZ RAMI, P-01 and P-06. Wifes RAMI and CZ 75 Compact also wear them.

    Right now I'm using a Desbian's IWB. I believe you can find Rhome listed here. If not, I'll try to look him up for you.

    Also check out the thread "under rated carry guns" Some folks turned me onto other fits too, but I can't remember what they were, and the thread is bookmarked on another computer.

    I sometimes carry a Polish P-64 (9x18) and it is flat as a pancake and built like a tank. I was going to get a CZ but just about the time I was on a C&R roll I had some other expenses come onto the scene. I picked up two P-64's, one from Centerfire Systems, Inc. - Your Home For Ammo, Firearms, Magazines, and Gun Accessories and the other from J&G Sales and both were $150.00 each. The one from J&G Sales was NOS and packed in heavy cosmoline and likely only fired 38 years ago for its function test at the factory. the other was lightly worn but very tight. Both are great pistols.
