After disassembling, coating and reassembling my CZ82 with all 55 parts I got the bug and want try and learn some more gun smithing and refinishing techniques. Where does one find 'gunsmith special' handguns? Something that might not work well or is broken but is potentially fixable to a novice. Century has like 3, SOG has one, J&G has one. really very little in the way of options. old C&R eligible ones would be even better for me. There has got to be more dead handguns around somewhere for a hobbyist to work on. I went by The Gun Broker and then have a few boxes of dead long guns for spare parts but no pistols "we dont accept any non-working pistols" was the response I got. They were my best local bet for a non-working handgun to try and fix.
