I took one apart and getting the sear back together was interesting. Try this- no, this- no, this fawk, this FAAAAAWK, this- no, this- no....... Get ready to throw across room and just drop part... in perfect. Wait what the fawking hell???? Hey whatever works.
When I first got my C&R a decade ago (not continuous as I purposely let it expire every time before applying for a new one), the CZ-82 was one of the first guns I got. What an incredibly smooth DA trigger pull! I remember using it (just because I could) when I took my NRA PPOTH course for my instructor certifications.
Unlike retailers' FFLs, C&R records can be destroyed as soon as it expires. If you renew, you must keep your records. I only need to maintain the current license's records during that three-year period. Makes for less paperwork maintenance, and I don't use the license often enough to mind the month or two of no license in between.

I have done the same thing. Not for any nefarious reason, just because I hate paperwork. I also do not want to be reminded of those firearms I have sold in the past and that I am now missing. There have been a few I would readily buy back in a heartbeat.
Getting back on topic...I have had a CZ82 in the past, hope to have another in the future. It was what got me interested in Czech firearm development, which was basically a restrained middle finger to the Soviet mother state when it came to design (I am thinking of the VZ58, which has a special place in my heart).
The CZ82 in my opinion is the best kept soviet era secret. Perfect size (same as GLock 19), excellent quality, 12 round capacity, just as potent as 9MM Luger w/ Underwood ammo, good sights, good trigger, good accuracy,1911 type safety. A real gem.
There is a law of diminishing returns at play w/ close range self defense. Sure a 475 Linebaugh is more potent than a 45 acp, but what's the point? With Underwood Xtreme penetrator 9x18, you don't need any more power for short range self defense. As this type of ammo becomes generally accepted, watch the big heavy pieces (CZ75, Ber92, 1911) become increasingly unpopular dinosaurs.
