Which flavor (7.65 Br, 9x17 or 9x18)?

Great pistols (vz82 / CZ83). I used a vz82 (9x18) to shoot my CCW qualification.
I don't look like my avatar!

Robustly built with sexy lines . Fine shooters. The grips can be the weak spot...screws loosening while shooting (some people use O rings) and can crack. Also, here?s an interesting thread in the forum concerning a drop-safe issue.

What year is it? The newer ones have the 2-digits year on the right side of slide while the older ones have it on the right side frame. Congrats on the purchase.
