CZ-82 new recoil springs Standard or extra power
« on: September 29, 2011, 06:38:52 PM »
Hi all, I'm looking at the Wolff Springs recoil springs for my 82. And I'm wondering what you folks think is the best spring for it.
Just plan on shooting Wolf, Brown Bear, Silver bear etc from it.

Thanks

I went with the Recoil Calibration pack the first time so I could try out the different weights to see which I preferred. I found that the 18# spring worked best for me. It tamed the recoil nicely, and keeps the brass from flying clear into the next county...

I've just bought 18# springs ever since.

I bought the Wolff cal pack also. Installed the OEM weight (14 lb?) and it works fine, keeps empties closeby. Didn't really need to go higher with my handloads. As long as feed and ejection is okay, the higher the weight spring the better.
Life isn't fair, stop expecting it to be.

The answer is probably already out there, but while reading this thread I realized I do not know what the standard spring weight is for the CZ 82.  Have not had mine all that long, but I do know that it is a tack driver.  My wife did say that it was throwing brass over the partition into her lane.  So, does that mean it could use a somewhat stronger spring even with standard ammo.

Standard recoil spring weight is 14 or 14 1/2 lbs. I replaced mine with an 18 lb spring to keep the brass in the same county, and it tamed the snappiness dramatically!

the springs on the wolfsprings web site say the cz 82 springs are for the .380. are these the springs for the 9x18 makarov?

Because the CZ82 comes only in 9X18 and many have used the Wolff Springs successfully in their CZ82's, I think it is safe to assume that either the 16.5 or the 18 lb will work for you.   I think Wolff just lists the .380 on their web site is because that is the caliber that most current CZ83's come in (yes there are some .32's also).   I could stand corrected on this subject if someone has more definitive info.

The 18 lbs spring works great for me, and I've only been firing the brown/silver bear.

Note, that some folks experience, that a heavier spring tends to have the point of impact significantly lower, to the point where a new back sight is wanted.

Mine had a #3 back sight, and was hitting pretty low, I switched to a #4 meprolite, and it's back where I want it.

What are "back sights"?  What do the different numbers mean, i.e. #3, #4?

Thanks,

The back sight is simply the sight with the notch at the rear of the slide (just as the front sight is the blade at the front).  The numbers refer to the height of the sight; a taller rear sight will move the point of impact up.

I too use the 18 pd Wolff sping in mine, I shoot a lot of Fiocchi and it's as hot as standard ammo gets (1100 fps, per Natchez Shooters Supply list).

+1 for the Wolff Springs Recoil Calibration pack..  I ordered one a while back.. it took awhile to get to me (they where back ordered) but when they did it was free shipping

I used the 16lbs. spring and the exp firing pin spring..   no problems so far .. and that's after about 300 rounds.
Slide is a bit harder to pull back but not to much.. the extra lbs seems to deaden the snappyness a bit of the pistol and I have had no change in the poi.
