The original Vz.52 in 7.62x45 was known for being highly reliable, more accurate than an SKS, and overall a high quality build.

My friend at grad school is building a collection of Czech guns and got a Vz.52 in 7.62x45. It's a really neat round and the gun was a lot of fun to shoot... it felt really solid. I don't like the sights at all though. I'm sure the rifle is capable of much better accuracy than I got from it, but the rear sight is one of those awful U shaped sights and is pretty wide to boot.

I'm not really sure the beavertail is necessary. My P-01 has the beavertail but the hammer only comes back about 60 degrees or so... I think it'd be pretty hard to pinch your webbing in it.

I don't see why a 94 gr lead bullet would have trouble with 3.2 or so gr of Bullseye. Should fill the case nicely without being too punishing. Also, cheap.

And if you really, really are afraid of using lead, there are Berrys plated bullets for about 9 cents each.

So I spent this afternoon polishing the trigger bow and sear cage on my P-01, and installed an 85 Combat trigger with the overtravel adjustment. Holy poo poo. The trigger is honestly nicer than my 1911 Gold Cup's. I'm thinking about installing one of my heavier mainsprings because the single action feels like I'm not even pulling it. Double action is also greatly smoothed.

Be very cautious of a very light SA pull on a DA/SA gun. I had my P229 trigger tweaked to a buttery smooth DA and a 2 pound SA. This was waaaay too light. It was easy to inadvertantly double tap after a DA pull. YMMV, of course.

The trigger is still about 3.5 to 4 lbs... it just feels like it isn't.

Is this safe? Meaning: is any great stress placed upon the slide stop pieces when firing? I can't really tell what it does during firing, if anything.

It stops the slide's motion. Also it controls the camming of the barrel.

What rotten luck. At the range today, my 82's trigger return spring broke, and I just launched my P-01's firing pin block spring into orbit and cannot find it. CZ ships fast, but their shipping cost is ridiculous (12 bucks) and I JUST ordered from them last weekend. Lame!

Crossbreed makes a Supertuck for it. I don't have one yet so I can't tell you how it is, but people around the forums that do say it's really nice.

The LCP is definitely going to be smaller, thinner and lighter than the 82, being a single-stack polymer gun. It's kind of apples and oranges. That said, with the grips filed down on my 82 it's reasonably sized. I can take pictures tonight.

Sorry for the poor picture quality... my DSLR's battery was dead when I took these.




Anyway, the 82 is actually a bit thinner in the grip than my 1911 (admittedly, I filed down the finger ridges), and has approximately the same slide width, so on those fronts they're about on par.

One place where the 82 excels is bore axis. My thumb is drat near in line with the barrel, and I can get my hands wayyyy up there. Shooting it, especially with the 18 lbs recoil spring I put in there, feels like nothing. Goes right back on target.

Additionally, the double stack mag, while still pretty thin, holds 12 rounds and is wayyyyyy easier to seat at speed than 1911 mags. They are pretty spendy though, around 30 bucks shipped.

What's the main difference between the CZ 82 and the 83? I want one in .380, and I'm trying to decide if there is some reason to pick one over the other, aside from price.

The difference is the trigger guard, and I think that's about it, really. You can put a .380 barrel in an 82, but the .380 barrels don't have the polygonal rifling that the 9x18 barrels have, if that's something you're interested in at all.

Don't bother with J&G. Wideners has them for 200 with two mags. Mags are kinda hard to come by, and pricey when you do.

For what it's worth, I've heard nothing but terrible things about the thin grips cracking constantly on 82s. If you want thinner grips, you can do what I did and take a file and sanding block to the stock plastic grips to take off the thumb rests. It worked great and it's pretty drat slim now.

You have to lift it up as you reinstall the decocker lever, so that it settles back down into the notch on the decocker. Otherwise I'm not quite sure what you mean. Did you take apart the trigger group without using dummy pins or something?

Cajun Gun Works sells a hardened steel slave pin that really works well. You NEED this if you're going to be taking out the trigger pack. Without it you WILL hate yourself forever. Alternatively you can get a cheap drill rod and cut it with a dremel to the right length.

The CZ-82 isn't really that snappy... it's just that if you haven't replaced the recoil spring, the one you have in there is probably completely worn out. Get a Wolff 16 pound spring and it's much nicer. Alternatively, they have 18 pounders, which are basically like shooting .22 LR but it's kind of a workout to rack the slide.

The CGW guy is pretty awesome. The trigger on my P-01 was immensely improved with his hammer cut. I only wish the FPB engaged faster! I've removed some of the overtravel but a lot of it is because it doesn't swing up fast enough. I might do a bit of machining to see what I can do about it.
