    What good is a C&R license beyond getting a CZ-82?

    The more I read about the CZ-82, the more I want one. What I really like is that it seems "real world" useful and not just a collectible "shelf queen." (Not slamming collectibles, I am just looking for practical use guns at this point.) Plus the CZ is a great price compared to Glocks and other big boys.

    What other great C&R weapons are out there that are relatively inexpensive, practical use weapons like the CZ-82? (both handguns and rifles)

    Yes, I have downloaded the BATFE list, but rather than researching each model in the list, I was hoping some of the folks here could help me narrow it down a little.

    Thanks in advance...

    The Mosin-Nagants are inexpensive, well made, and ammo is cheap and plentiful (for now). It shoots 7.62x54r round ~ 3006 in size. Cons include they kick like a mule. Priced less then $100.

    If you want a highly accurate rifle look to the K31 Swiss rifles. The Swiss gave every infantry man a sniper rifle and they shoot like one. Most all bores are in great condition because the Swiss never made corrosive ammo in the 7.5 Swiss. Priced $250 birch stock, $300 walnut stock.

    SKS rifle (not all, must be c&r) semiauto goodness.

    Just three off the top of my head.

    One big thing you need to realize, other than purchasing C&R guns and having them sent directly to your home the C&R FFL (03-FFL) can get you dealer pricing at vendors like Midway and Brownells and many other online firearms related sites. It saves me several hundred dollars a year on ammo, reloading supplies and other firearms related items. I have saved as much as $75 on a single large order from Midway.

    C&R guns........ Well lets see, here are a few of mine:

    Unless you're planning on purchasing a lot of firearms, I don't see the point in getting the license.

    I recently bought a CZ-82 for $169 (VG to Excel), plus $29 for an extra mag. The total with FFL & shipping came to @$260. The pistol was in great shape (other than having been dipped in a preservative-yuk!) but when cleaned and lubed proved to be a terrific shooter, better than my Glock! Very well made and excellent trigger.

    It's currently being DuraCoated and grips from Marschals are on order. Best buy I've made in a long time.

    I'm planning on getting another, stripping it to bare parts, having my son's name, rank and unit engraved on it, and a new DuraCoat finish as a Xmas gift when he returns from his current deployment.

    Thanks, all, for the good advice. I didn't realize C&R scored us discounts outside of the "collectibles" market as well.

    Pirate, I've enjoyed your pics throughout my CZ research. Beautiful guns,beautifully photographed.

    OldVet, what a great gift! With you as a dad, your son is a fortunaate man indeed.

    Several places will give you discounts with a C&R. Midway, Century Brownell's.... Just to name a few....

    If you are out of state and see a collectable you want in a gun store or pawn shop, you can buy and walk out with it. That's something you couldn't do without a C&R.
