My New (to me) CZ 83
« on: January 19, 2023, 02:44:13 PM »
I've been wanting one of these for some time but I missed out on the surplus imports that were in good condition and I didn't want any of the beat up ones that seem to be available these last few years. I was scanning the local gun classified site and a pristine 83 popped up the other day in .380, so I jumped on it. I had heard that the triggers were very good but I had no idea how good. This little gun is a new favorite and I'll be getting out to the range on Saturday to do a little plinking.

Nice! They're a fun little gun. Really underrated IMO.

It seems like it will be a lot of fun to shoot. I want to get some different grip panels, any suggestions on where to look for them?

Depends on what you want. If you want a set of original black plastic try Apex Gun Parts or Numrich

Marschal’s for wood

Check Amazon and Ebay

Sweet looking pistol. Good luck with your hunt.

Thanks, but I was thinking more along the lines of black ebony or something similar. I think it's a classic pistol like CZ 75s & Hi Powers and one of the things I like about these kind of pistols is the ability to change the grip panels to add a little spice.

I found a company (www.marschalgrips.com) that makes some nice looking grips for various models and I really like the set pictured below. Not too fancy for the style of pistol, but good looking grips. I don't know if I like the finger grooves for feel, but I like them for looks. I may just go with grips with no grooves.

I don’t usually like finger grooves but for the CZ 83, that particular Marschal option with the finger grooves and thumb rest are my favorite grips for the CZ 83. Klinsky (far left) from the Czech  Republic makes wooden options although the ordering process was not a simple step of paying on the website but being contacted by email from the shop for payment options. That was several years ago though. For me, the Grips4U grips (middle) have an additional contour at the bottom the grip that sometimes feel like a sharp corner to me. Btw - The two grips with the Z inside barrel grooves logo is that for Zbrojovka Brno and had nothing to do with the CZ82/83.

Prestige Grips offers CF grips. An American who operates out of the Philippines.
