CZ 83 7.65mm Available Now from ...
« on: July 08, 2021, 09:57:06 PM »
Atlantic Firearms now had the CZ 83 in 7.65mm. The pictures show the markings stating "Made in Czechoslovakia." I like the ones made in the former country for historical purposes. these pistols are available for $545. I ordered one but I have never done business with AF before so I hope I made the right decision. PS They also have the CZ 82 for about $100 fewer 8).

Will provide feedback on the pistol. The firearm has shipped and I await a call from my FFL.

The pictures for the CZ83 look better than the CZ82. I will have to wait until mine shows up. In pictures of both guns the barrels look clean without any wear marks.

Good news and bad news regarding my CZ 83 pistol. Unfortunately there were some issues with the firearm when I examined it at the FFL. The takedown lever required an excessive amount of force to operate and the mag release would only operate from one side. I refused the gun and Atlantic Firearms was fantastic in getting me a full refund. I thanked them greatly. I sent them an e-mail at 9:30 PM one evening and by 8:22 AM the next day I had instructions and an FedEx shipping label to give to my FFL.

Atlantic firearms did right by me, they are great company and I will do business with them again

Thanks for the report. Sorry to hear about the gun though. Are you going to try another one from them? Is there a way to gauge the condition beforehand, or is it just rolling the dice on condition?

I will wait for another time. They do provide pictures and a grading.

Atlantic has always had a great customer service reputation locally. That's where you know if the reputation is "smoke and mirrors" or the real thing. In this case, it's real IMO.

I strongly agree. Atlantic Firearms did "Right" by me. I was told they had a great reputation and AF lived up to this reputation. I will do business with them again.

New member here.  I just received my CZ 83 .32 ACP from Atlantic last week.  It was in very nice condition.  Everything worked.  A bit dusty.  Some “honest wear” from handling, carry and some shooting.  Bore was pristine. 

Mine dates to 1991. Has a nice “Made in Czechoslovakia” stamp. Round trigger guard. 

But only 1 magazine.  I can’t seem to find magazines anywhere.  I’d like to have two or three extras on hand.   Any suggestions?

I am glad yours was better than mine. Great find. The only place I saw magazines available were Gunbroker and they were expensive. I am glad I bought them while still available from CZ USA. Let us know how the pistol shoots.  8)

My CZ83 in .380 also has similar issues with the effort required to pull the trigger guard down and ejecting the magazine.

I even bought some of the parts to replace the mag release and it is very finicky still after replacement.
