Re: CZ 82 advice...
I have a Cz-82 that I keep in the car at all times. It does shoot good even if it looks kinda beat up. The finish was really rough when I got it, sight unseen, from SOG (I think). I have been planning to Duracote it but just haven't yet.
If you have your C&R, you know you can use it at the local gun store and can skip the background check and save another $5 if they charge that. If they are selling it for $179, you know they paid less so you might be able to deal a little with them. The best part is that you will be able to pick and choose the best looking one.
