    I'll second that. I've owned both and the CZ is a quality firearms that you will enjoy shooting. I like my PA-63 too. I have also owned a P64. I put 50 rounds through it, the next day at work, my hand still hurt. I've heard some people say that changing the springs makes a big difference, it sure can't make it any worse.
    The one redeeming feature on my P64 was it's accuracy. It hit to point of aim every time. I still traded it off though. I just don't like a gun I can't take out for a range session and enjoy.

    iwannasee,

    Both are really nice looking pistols for sure. I know the trigger pull on the CZ is easy as I have looked at them before down at J&G sales. How long have you had your CZ? Any problems with it at all?

    lead,

    I agree on the idea of taking a gun out and enjoying it. Those P64s sure look nice, sure are compact, and sure look solid......but there aint no way I am going out in the desert and chewing up my hand with it. Me and my eldest son both have kinda large hands but when a gun like the P64 is steel and the hand is flesh......the gun aint doing the complaining! What can you tell me about the CZ82?

    Take care,

    I have both a PA-63 a P-64 and CZ-82 among others. I would say the CZ-82 is my favorite. I just wish it wasn't chambered for a 9X18. I plan on swithcing mine over to .380. New barrel from CZ is $100.

    The CZ just fits my hand, I like the trigger pull in DA or SA.

    I like my PA-63 and AP-MBP because they look like PPK's. For me they are OK shooters. But my CZ-82 is my favorite even over my 92FS.

    Not one problem @ all. Got it from Classic Arms in September. Shot approximately 500 rounds of Wolf military classic and Academy Monarch blue box through it without a hitch. I actually use it as a carry piece too.

    I used my PA-63 to qualify for my CCW after I got to the range and saw what it took to pass. No problem with the PA-63 either. Only issue is the snappy recoil and I think I may have grown tired of it while qualifying.

    Well.....I traded the P-64s for two CZ-82s and I already tried out the CZ-82s.

    They are keepers.

    I might try to do a bead blast and refinish on one of them even though it only has a few slight chips on the black paint.

    I recently switched to 15 lb recoil springs and 9 lb hammer springs. It helps with recoiland trigger pull. I shoot Fiocchi 95 grain fmj and have never had a misfire. I've heard some people have problems with the 9 lb hammer spring hitting the primer to soft, but I've never had any trouble. The slide bite is still pretty mean. Any ideas on how to lessen it?

    I had the same complaints about the PA63. I had a gunsmith cut a slot in the duckbill and insert a small plate effectively lengthening it. I also found that the magazine base plate of a Bersa .380 would replace the original and provide a rest for my pinky.
