Manufactured by free Czechs in 1992, this fine Czech-Made CZ-83 pistol served and protected the good citizens of the Czech Republic, as they prospered in their newly won freedom of the early 1990s. Domiciled agency was the distinguished Municipal Police of Ostrava. CZ firearms, of course, has many decades of manufacturing experience and expertise, and they are among the best firearms in the world; they take no back seat in quality to any Belgian, German, Italian, or even American made firearms. This is CZ’s midsized service or personal protection pistol, the CZ 83, chambered in .32 ACP, labeled 7.65 among our European allies. As European Police Officers have long known, the .32 ACP / 7.65 has superior penetration qualities above all other short-case centerfire pistol calibers. Construction on this pistol is entirely blue steel; type is traditional double- and single-action semi-auto; 3 3/4 inch Hammer Forged barrel with conventional rifling; weight empty 26.8 ounces; capacity 15 + 1 rounds of .32 ACP ammunition; 3 dot sights with heat-dissipating serrated slide top rib and 5 inch sight radius; maximum height 4.90 inches measured from the top of the rear sight to the floorplate of an in-battery magazine; slide thickness .867 inches; maximum thickness of the glossy polymer service grips 1.38 inches; .397 serrated spur blue steel hammer; .390 smooth face combat steel trigger; extreme overall length 6 11/16 inches. The fully serrated steel ambidextrous safety is elegantly simple; it does not decock, rather, it allows the officer to carry cocked and locked on a single action mode. Double action pull for the first shot is smooth and consistent, and 5/8 inch trigger distance, with shorter distance of 3/8 inch on single action. The extended trigger guard that allows firing with gloved hands also forms the basis for Walther-type simple disassembly; ambidextrous main safety that allows cocked-and-locked carry is fully serrated. Magazine release is ambidextrous, similar to Ruger P-85/95 pistols. PW Arms, Redmond, WA import marks are on the left side of the slide right beside the CZ factory logo and model designation, middle left side, as the photos show. Surface wear to this CZ-83 is moderate, with palm contact evidence on the grip frame fore and aft; otherwise with only faint amounts of edge whitening with faint scouring to the glossy polymer grip panels and faint dulling to their checkering.
