I would just like to point out that the Vz.52 pistol was made at CZ Strakonice, not Uherský Brod. Though today they're both privatized companies built on the assets of old Czech state armories Strakonice's pistols don't really compare favorably to CZUB's



Also CZ-USA: set up a manufacturing facility here in the US and make CZ-805s tia

I've seen the 82's polygonal rifling is supposedly superior to standard grooved rifling -- myth? If not why isn't it a more used barrel design?

Well I think it's a bit harder to do than hammer-forging or button rifling and therefore more expensive to manufacture (which adds up if you're making tens or hundreds of thousands of guns) and a polygonal-rifled bore does foul much faster with cast lead bullets- IIRC most manufacturers actually say not to use them at all, instead stick with FMJ/JHP only
