Got the CZ-82 out tonight

Incredible trigger. Lives up to what I've always heard. Groups 3 inches at 15 yards with Winchester ammo.

Hits 12 inches low and 4 inches left at 15 yards. This just blew my mind. Thought it should hit a little closer to line of sight.

Took the Glock 22 along and had no trouble with it.

Any ideas? Bent barrel?

All the Best,
D. White

How many rounds fired? SA or DA, or did not matter? What kind of stance (standing, or sitting, laying), and grip (single, double, thumbs in what position, low or high grip)? Bright sunny, or dusk?

Any rest used, or offhand only?

Suggestion: shoot groupings sitting, off a rest, in SA.

check the barrel crown for nicks, dings etc. and test from a rest and have smeone else shoot it without telling them what you are looking for.

Everything last night was shot off a rest, single action.

There is what looks like a wide, shallow groove starting just in front of the chamber and extending about 3 inches up the barrel on the bottom side. Hard to tell though if it's rifling or a surface imperfection.

I've tried Silver Bear, Brown Bear, Fiocchi, Winchester, and Blazer ammo. All are accurate, just low.

From what I've found it would take a 1/8 inch higher rear sight to get this on target.

Hate to spend $100 on a barrel to find it doesn't help. Might try to find a higher rear sight.

All the Best,
D. White

How much did you buy it for? You will easily spend what you paid to fix it- unless you can find a sight or barrel. you might have to cut your losses and part it out.

Apparently sights from a CZ-75 will fit this though they're a little wide for the 82 frame width. CZ has them for $9.00 each. I ordered a #5 and a #6 (they're apparently graded by height).

Hopefully it'll work.

Really though, a new barrel from CZ is $100. If i scrap this I'll end up spending more on a replacement gun. If the sight doesn't work, I'll do a barrel. Also, it's hard to resist a project.

Thanks for the replies.

All the Best,

Got my new sights today. They are for a CZ-75 and they do fit. Don't seem any wider than the original.

Stock sight, a #2, was 7.4mm (0.291") high. The #5 I ordered is 8.25mm (0.324") high. The #6 is 8.7mm (0.342") high. I put in the #6. This should change point of impact by 5.5 inches.

Not enough mathematically. I'll shoot it later this week.

I think something is bent.

All the Best,
D. White

I have two (2) CZ 82s; one a 1985 and the other a 1990. Both guns group very well at 7 yards but I have not tried at 15 yards. I have only shot these guns standing, off-hand and really like shooting them.

Both of mine place the bullet about 4 inches high at 7 yards.

On the 1985 model, the barrel looks like a smooth bore while on the 1990 model, I can faintly see the polygonal "rifling".

I doubt this helps but, since the barrel is pinned in place, have you checked for pin alignment?

Got back to the range yesterday. The new rear sight, along with some pointers from the RSO, brought the point of impact up adequately.

I have a Ruger Security-Six with a 6 inch barrel and a Glock 22. The CZ is the shortest barreled gun I've fired. Any misalignment of sights with target changes point of impact a lot. Lack of familiarity with the gun doesn't help either. Since I wasn't shooting it well, I wasn't shooting it enough.

Never too old to learn something new.

All the Best,
D. White
