CZ-83 .32 acp magazine release problem
« on: November 12, 2020, 10:35:10 PM »
The magazine release on my CZ-83 will on release magazine from right side of frame and then only with some difficulty. I'm guessing magazine release may be worn out after years of regular use. Will CZ USA fix a gun this old? Are parts still available?

  Give them a call or email and find out. If it's out of warranty it would probably be a paid repair. If it's something as simple as a spring or something similar you'd probably save quite a bit of money just taking it to a local smith or doing it yourself. Back when I ran a shop that's the sort of thing I'd do for probably $20 or so if you brought the parts, either while you waited or in a day or two if I was pretty busy. You can check for parts at the CZ-USA website and places like Numrich.

It's probably the #45 magazine release spring being worn out.

Mine has exactly the same issue, but I have been living with it, by mostly using the right side. Please report back if/how you fixed it. Thanks!!

Thank you! (BTW- where did you order that from? Numrich shows none in stock) Update 21 Jan- Please disregard--found them at Apex.  :) Update 30 Jan- I installed a new spring and the difference is negligible.
