    It's called polygonal rifling, like a Glock or HK and few other pistols.

    Polygonal rifling. I think Hexagonal in this caliber. It has some advantages over conventional:

    i bought 2 years ago when cdnn had them for under $200. they have more/worse recoil than same size packages in 9mm with tilting barrel designs (cz82 has a fixed barrel and is chambered in 9x18mm)

    I sold them both, more due to not wanting several similar calibers than anything else. rock solid warhorses. I would love one in 32acp!

    That is some strange rifling but as long as it’s accurate it doesn’t bother me, thanks everyone.

    Be aware that some mfgs (Glock in particular) using polygonal rifling advise against using unjacketed bullets due to leading. Make sure that you de-lead the bore regularly if you do use plain lead bullets.

    Česká zbrojovka or CZ. for short(meaning Czech Armory) has been around since 1937. They were in Czechoslovakia now the Czech Republic and have produced excellent military and civilian firearms.
    During WWII the Nazi's had taken over the country and the arms plant, so the Allies tried to put them out of business.
    The Czech's just moved everything to private dwellings and avoided getting wiped out.
    You may have heard of some of their Mausers, some were coded, and some "in the clear". The VZ-24 Mauser Action is sought after by custom builders even today.
    (Probably way more than you wanted to know, but knowledge is power.):)

    'Tried showing off once to a Czech immigrant(legal) working at CVS, and pronounced the full name for her to show her I could speak Czech.
    I stumbled it out and she said, "You sound like a Russian!" Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod

    That's a very nice example for that kind of dough. How many mags came with it?

    Did he have have two of them along with a PA-63 and CZ 52? If so I looked at those. I've got a cz82 and cz 83 and like both. You got a good pistol. Now you just need to reload for it. You can cut down 9 mm luger cases to make makarov if you have the patience. I've done about 700.
