    CZ83 .380 cal Any Good ?

    I went to a gun show this weekend and saw a CZ83
    in .380 and was thinking about getting one.
    Have any of you shot one or used it to CC?
    How did it shoot and was it worth the money
    you paid for it?

    Thanks

    Unlike other winters. people are really lookking/buying the CZ83 and CZ83
    pistols this year.

    They are excellent if you don't expect them for pocket carry.


    However, the weight really tames the .380 blowback recoil, and
    follow up shots are a breeeze.



    Superb trigger and good accuracy. You will be surprised!

    I've heard nothing but good things about CZ, but why carry .380 for SD when there are several 9mm & .40 weapons that are a similar size?

    The CZ83 is an OK gun, but the price has climbed to the point I'd suggest you spend a few more dollars and get a much better gun in the Beretta 84. I'm not keen on DA/SA guns that don't have a de-cocker, and the CZ83 bites my hand. Other than that, the gun performs pretty well.

    Its a CZ, thats all you need to know. I have two of the CZ82's (9mm Makarov) and they are outstanding pistols. Hard to believe they are Curio and Relic pistols. The CZ 83 is not, they are still manufactured by CZ. The CZ82 was made for the military. If the price is good get it. They are all steel pistols so they are a bit heavy for CCW for the frame size, but they are very solid and reliable. If you can find a CZ 82 I would get that instead. They will be cheaper and the 9mm Mak round is a bit better than the .380 in power and its readily avalible online for about the same price. Wolf, Privi Partizen and Sellier and Belliot all make it. I see them all the time locally for less than $300 in VG condition. I have a Curio & Relics FFL so I can order them online and the one below I got for less than $200 shipped.

    CZ 82 with the Duracoat finish I applied.
