I'm gonna second the the call on the CZ82. It's a fun gun to shoot, it's accurate as you are, it's ambidextrous, it breaks down fairly easy for cleaning, just don't NEVER, EVER take it further apart than necessary to clean it. Maybe ya'll can, but even with my total applied mechanical abilities and gunsmithing prowess :whistle: it makes me shudder at the thought. :LOL:

I just got in a CZ82 for my personal collection. Its a honey you usually see these with ugly finishes because they were just painted from the factory. This one is pristine, you would almost call it unissued as far as a CZ82 goes... even the grips are pristine. Guy bought it way back when century was putting the tiny import mark on the side of the slide and put it up and it just sat there until he decided to sell it.

If you guys are interested in pistols in the 9x18 mak round, I highly suggest finding a CZ82 and checking it out. They make a great carry gun.

I have A FEG Hungarian Makarov, I believe it is a PA 63, I don't have it handy but I think that is what it is. The double action pull seems about 20lbs. The single action pull is perfect, smooth and light. The gun is way more accurate than I am. I have owned the gun for over 30 years. It was my first off duty pistol. I couldn't afford a Walther at the time and now I'm glad so. It has never jammed on me since I have had it. I only shoot 9x18 fmjs in it. What a great little gun.

Is it two tone silver and black? That is the easiest way to identify a PA63 as most of them were produced like that. They do have a terrible double action pull, but wolff springs makes a replacement set of springs that greatly reduces the amount of pull on the trigger and makes it a much more enjoyable pistol to shoot.

Yep two tone, it is a PA 63, checked it when I got home. I have a belly band holster I tote that gun around in sometimes. That little 9x18 is a hummer. I shoot ball and never had a problem. I trust that little gun as much as I do my Glocks and Sigs. I usually thumb cock that first round on the draw, but now I'm going to look into those springs if they won't cost me all my beer allowance for the month. Thanks for the info.

I think about 20ish bucks will get you a spring set... watch a couple of youtube vids on how to install them first. They do make a heck of a difference.
