CZ 83 Lanyard Ring Removal Instructions Requested
« on: November 15, 2022, 10:01:56 PM »
I recently purchased a Model 83 made in 1990.  It came with a lanyard ring on the left side at the base of the grip.  Does anyone know how to remove this item in order to have a flush grip? (Without grinding)
Thanks

Sounds like one of the surplus guns where they used the pin (#6 in the diagram) that retains the main spring plug (#33) as a means to create a lanyard loop. You should be able replace that lanyard pin with a regular one and you might also want to replace the grip in order to cover the new flush pin.

Removal is done by pressing on the main spring plug (hammer uncocked, firearm unloaded, etc.) until the pressure on the pin is relieved and the pin can be pushed out. The main spring plug type with the lanyard loop on the bottom makes this a slightly easier process to just push the pistol frame down on the loop protruding past the frame versus the flush type.

Once you do this job, you'll find that having a small protrusion is actually helpful for disassembly and assembly. Maybe not as big as stock, but still something is better than nothing.

Additionally, this is same labor as hammer spring reduction... which you may wish to do at the same time.

Ask me about used Dillon reloading equipment.
