CZ 83 to the range
« on: August 24, 2008, 03:21:47 PM »
this is my first real post besides saying hello in the new members forum. thanks again for a good site. anyways, i took my 83 out again yesterday and im liking it more and more. at first the trigger was pretty rough, but after close to 1000 rds. and no (read:ZERO) jams of any kind it has smoothed out quite a bit. the accuracy is also making me look very good. at 10 yards both mags go into 1 big hole with the occasional flyer and im a terrible shot. I shot 100 rds 92gr. S&B FMJ, 50 Fiocchi 90 gr. HPXTP (wow) and 50 UMC MC. S&B might be the best of those 3. of course the fiocchi had me COMPLETELY distracted, i saw nowhere on the box +p+ but it was definitely that. heaviest recoil, significant muzzle blast, far and away the most fun. follow up shots with all 3 was easy. i consider myself fairly new to autos but with this little fella i might be able to convince some otherwise.

one small cause for concern, the last 2 trips the grips wiggled loose, i heard somewhere locktite or maybe a small oring would take care of that, any other suggestions? thanks

Use blue locktite.
I just picked up a "used" CZ83 and went to the range with a friend who had a new Walther in SS. He was drooling over my CZ. Although both guns were accurate, his had feeding problems 3 or 4 times out of every 7 round magazine. I just kept on shooting. Very happy on this end.

I have a Walther PPKS, a CZ82, and a CZ83. Never had any feed problems in any of them.   ???

My friend sent his Walther back to the factory for service and it came back with a polished feed ramp. He's happy now but he is still lusting after my CZ83.
