Not long ago I made some comments that I thought the C&R forum seemed a little dusty.. Not much going on so I was told "Why not start a thread..?" What the hell I said.. So here it is. My CZ 82 Project. I'm a bit of a shade tree restoration nut but long guns where what I'd concentrated on the most.. This CZ was the first pistol I'd ever tackled with a 100% tear down. In order to remove the old finish, I had to disassemble the gun to it's 55 component parts or risk damage using the blasting media. I did not include the before pictures in this block but will have to dig them up and post them later. What you see is from tear down to what I've left the finish as in the end.. I have a set of grips coming in from Marshalgrips that will match the finish quite nicely..
