    I did read one thread a while back about refinished CZ82s and some were in a nickel satin finish. Some people have stripped down the baked on finish and left it as is after some buffing but to me bare metal screams trouble.

    This is what an original mint example should look like:

    RAY, no way should a CZ82 ever look that nice...........that is sweet looking.
    I attached my home parkerize job....I got some blotchy results on the smaller parts and trigger guard.
    Greg Derr of derrprecission did a bake on finish in the end that really looks great.
    The pics did not come out in order

    Sand blasted parts used aluminum oxide. frame and slide before, finished home park job, before pic of slide, the last is with greg derrs bake on finish. The pic was more to send Greg to show the problem I was haveing. After I refinished the 1st time the safty lever pin would walk out, Greg was quick to fix this also. Thumbs up to greg on his work...even when its not a high end pistol!

    You can see in my parkerize attempt that The smaller parts took on a grey look as all the rest took on black.
    All in all it was time consumeing, in the end after all the money spent on tools and kits and my wasted time I should have just sent it right to greg. I really dont even have a proper work space.
    I do like to do things myself though, NOW I KNOW I can dis/re assemble a CZ82 though

    I just finished stripping down my CZ82 last week.
    Bought a new rear sight for it on CZ USA and now I'm just stuck with deciding what colors to use from Duracoat.
    I just hope I can get it back together without losing anything. A monkey can strip a Glock. It takes a man to put a CZ82 together.

    I've seen someone hardchrome them too. Duracoat will probably give you the most "original" looking finish but I'm partial to bluing it if possible.

    Good luck!

    Yep, one of the nicest I've ever seen. It paid off getting the handpick that time.
