The popular and inexpensive CZ 82 was the official sidearm of the Czechoslovakian military from 1983 through 1993. The CZ 82 is a compact, double-action, semi-automatic pistol with a conventional blowback action that allows the barrel to remain solidly fixed to the frame, resulting in improved accuracy over pistols with pivoting barrels. The low bore axis of the 82 provides for less muzzle rise and quicker follow-up shots. For added convenience, both the frame-mounted thumb safety and the magazine release are ambidextrous, a feature that the CZ 82 was the first to offer. The bore is chrome-plated for corrosion resistance and longer barrel life, resistance to rust from the use of corrosive ammunition, and ease of and uses polygonal rifling. This pistol features blade front sight with a rear notch, a 2-position safety, and a 12-round magazine. Its grips and metal are in fair condition and its bore is in good condition.
