      I am just blown away with the quality to cost of the CZ to the others I own. It hits where you point it and never had a failure in 175 rounds I've put through it. It has a nice heft to it that fills my my hand, weighs enough to let me know it is there without being too heavy to carry.... all In My Opinion of course.

      I'm not sure if ILL will ever go CCW. Seems like everybody but the NOT so great state of Chicago wants it and we still don't have it. As I understand it, even if it passes the senate and house, it has to be approved by a committee.... made up of course by Chicago democrats. Maybe Chicago will succeed from the rest of Illinois? I'll contribute to that!!!

      Is the CZ 83 also available in 9mm? I didn't see it at Bud's for 9mm, but I do see 9mm ones on Gunbroker.

      I expect the 9mm to be a bit more effective for carry, but the recoil could be substantial. When I think of getting a smaller sized gun for carry, I wonder about .380 as the right caliber... to go no smaller than 9mm. Maybe I should be looking at the 75B compact?

      they were made in 9mm makarov but not 9mm parabellum..... if you want the cz in 9mm para, try the cz 75..... it doesnt get any better

      For $230 the CZ-83 .380 is an outstanding little carry gun.
      I've had a bit of trouble with mags... can expect a FTF or two in each mag!
      Found a factory-new mag and feel better about it with that set-up.

      It's been very accurate out of the box

      A nice buy!

      I own a cz-82 in 9x18 makarov.When I purchased it I was looking for a small weapon I could easily conceal.I wasnt familiar but with budget factors and it having a large capacity compared to most ther .380 calibers I thought it was a good choice.I only paid 150 for it.Had a lil holster wear on it but mechanically sound.It has about a 1000 rounds through and the only FTF was due to poor ammo.Stay away from wolf.I carry hornady critical defense in it for carry and use silver bear with both using JHP.They perform the same but the hornady is the XTP and seems to expand better.I buy ammo from J&G sales in 500 rnd lots and save 8 bucks a box compared to what I can get locally.Even purchased locally it is not bad as it is 20 for 50 rnds.The more I shoot it the more I love it.The best holster company I found is Falco.They have a great selection for the 82/83 holster.I did some homemade ballistic gel test and it performed really well producing on average 10 inch penetration.
