Found an orphaned CZ-82 (Ceská Zbrojovka 82) at our local gunshow this past weekend,, that was crying to be adopted. I passed it twice, but the third time around I couldn't resist and it came home with me. This one needs the holster, cleaning rod and lanyard to make it complete. Came with an early production magazine (No lower indent and a milled floorplate) a later production one (Lower indent and stamped floorplate), and a cheap knockoff one that ended up in my parts/junk pile. From my reading, any attempts to make the knock off ones work is a waste of time.

So now I have the following CZ pistols.

1953 CZ-52
1989 CZ-82
1990 CZ-82 Newest one
1991 CZ-83
1991 CZ-83 Currently residing with my FIL

Picture 1 1990 CZ-82 I just adopted.
Picture 2 Magazines (L to R) Late production, early production and cheap knock off.
Picture 3 (T to B) 1953 CZ-52, 1989 CZ-82 and 1991 CZ-83.
Picture 4 Showing my 1989 CZ-82 with holster and cleaning rod, sans pistol lanyard.
Picture 5 The 1991 CZ-83 that my FIL gun-napped.

I had a CZ rifle yrs ago. It was in 300 Win Mag cal. It was just too punishing to shoot and I traded it for a Browning .22.

I've got one CZ made rifle. It's a 1928 to 1930 made Ceskoslovenska Zbrojovka VZ-24-JC (1 of 15,000 rifles). Story goes these were originally made in 8mm for the Chinese, they defaulted on them and they were rebarreled for 7mm and sold to Brazilian Revolutionaries, for the 1932 San Paulo uprising, but the rifles were intercepted by Government Forces. They are a bit shorter and lighter than a normal VZ-24 rifle.

The JC designation means Jižní Čína or South China in Czech. The PM05362.4 number is the Policia Militar (Military Police) inventory number.
