Remember that CZ-82 I bought from JG a couple weeks ago?

I do and so does my thumb. :p

Brought it to the range and shot some silver and bronze Bear ammunition through it.
Shoots nice, and remarkably accurate!
Not a single malfunction. Overall a nice shooting pistol. I kept the rounds within a 5 inch circle at 12 yards. Not bad. A few went astray, but hey...it was a windy day. ;)

Only one downside, that thing is snappy! The recoil is kind of harsh.
Small pistol?
Caliber?
Light weight gun?
:shrug:

You got me.

Bought 20 boxes of Nagant ammo from JG Sales. :43:
Need to go to the range again next week.

Is it in 7.62 x 25 Tokarev? If so... yep - that's "snappy" ammo... Really deep penetration. One heck of a little round.

I have a CZ52 in that round, love to shoot it! :)

No, CZ-82's are 9x18Mak.

Well that shows you what I know!

I just tonight saw them in the J&G ad and realized they aren't 7.62 Tok. Oops ;)

And hey... what did you call me?

:p

Is recoil hurtin your thumb??? How is that? My thumb hurts from loading the mags since that ninth round never seems to want to go in. I ended up getting an uplula and man is it amazing! I believe they are going for $25 or so on amazon right now...

IIRC it's a blowback action, thus making it snappy

Yup. Nice recoil, but the grip is pretty "ergonomic" which helps mitigate the pain.
You should try shooting that same round through a P64: "Ouch!"

That is the deal.

Agree with dogfood: .22s aside, blowback guns KICK! Maybe that's why they're called that??? (Kidding). You should try an Astra 400 in 9x21 Largo sometime--"snappy" indeed.

Yea, P64 sure do kick and bite. Can't wait to get a CZ82, PA63 and a Makarov. :)

Took my CZ 82, that I bought 4 weeks back to the range. It's very accurate and very snappy, kick really hard. I can only imagine the recoil on P64 Now :-)

When you try a P64, my suggestion is use a shooting glove or grow lots of callouses. :p

When I first bought mine it stung a little bit. I bought a hogue rubber sleeve with finger grooves, I love it.
