Re: Bad buy?

With the one notable exception of the badly damaged blueing, it seems to be in okay shape to me. Never saw one with a finish that bad. I wouldn't worry Til I got it in hand. Hate to tell you, but Pass are available @ lower prices on the net. See Aim, Classic, etc. Best of luck w/your new pistol.

Re: Source For P-83 Parts?

On the same subject; that guy in Poland (Marcin Poiko, I think) also has brand new P-83 mags f/$42 delivered to the US via Priority mail. The $42 includes $2 f/Paypal charges. He has them listed on Gunbroker.com. HTH.

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

Turns out that the real problem was a large burr on the bolt face inner edge, which knocked the cartridge off-kilter while loading & caused the jams. Too bad my "experienced" gunsmith couldn't spot that. Fortunately f/me, my brother could. He filed the burr off & all is now well. Live & learn. Donzi

Re: Wanad?

What is "vanadium aluminum"? I've heard of vanadium steel, but not the other.

Yeah, it's vanadium. The Polish military(post WWII) has a history of naming their small arms after elements. Don't know why. Maybe just seemed like a good idea @ the time.

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

Right you are! Talked to my brother yesterday. He tried my 2 mags in his 82 & had even more trouble than I did; they consistently jammed & stove-piped, and one of them wouldn't come free of the pistol without the aid of a screwdriver. I'm supposed to receive another(factory) grip this week & I'll re...

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

I talked to J&G this AM & ordered a 12 round mag($60, shipped!). Hope this works. Re previous posts: The barrel& chamber are clean as a whistle, the recoil spring is a replacement, and I don't think the mag springs are weak(will compare w/the new mag when received), & my electronic calipers are on t...

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

Okay, so I finally got off my lazy butt & sent both my mags to my brother, who lives in Texas. He has a perfectly operating CZ82 & will try out my mags w/it & then we shall se what we shall see. If it isn't the mags, I may have a pistol f/sale cheap on this site real soon, as I'm tired of messing w/...

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

I agree with Weasel. It has to be something to do with the magazines - either the lips or the followers. If your smith checked the bottom of the slide and the ramp, it sounds like you've exhausted all the other possibilities. I've come to believe that you're probably right. I'll try to buy another ...

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

Yes, it's 9x18mm. Do you have another Makarov chambered firearm? If so, will the PPU chamber in it? Another "I hate to ask" but is the barrel a .380ACP bbl, swapped out for the original 9x18? Peace favor your sword, Kirk Yes, I have a Polish P64 & it seems to work just fine w/PPU. No, it's not .380...

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

Yes, it's 9x18mm. Wow, 9x18mm does not mean it's Makarov ammo! However of all the 9x18, Makarov is the thickest, although not advised the Ultra and Police probably would cycle. I'm more suspicious of your barrel. Have you had the chamber checked for spacing? Where did you get this CZ-82? I know tha...

Re: Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

They're pretty much rounded, Curley. Maybe it's the mags, although they seem OK w/the other ammo.

It's full metal jacket. I've never had much luck firing any JHPs in military pistols.

Privi Partizan Problem w/my CZ82

I recently noticed a problem w/my CZ82-it won't load Privi ammo(the ones w/a brass case) into the chamber from either of my original Czech military mags. I've tried everything I could think of, even replacing the extractor & spring w/new units from CZ(expensive!) and having a very experienced gunsmi...
