This is for Larry D who posted "Sarge - I could get to hate you...I've been looking all over the place for months for a CZ83 and here you have 2 of them......"
We bought two of them brand new on 31 March 1992 (Both made in 1991) while stationed at Rhein Main AB, Germany, I rotated back to the US on 08 July 1992.
I get a shotgun pattern at 30 feet with it, my wife gets a soda can size circle at 30 feet with rapid fire.
My father in law has one of them right now, he borrowed it and fell inove with it. We paid $249.94 each for them, and we still have all the paperwork for them. Both of them are marked Mod. 83 Cal. 9 Browning Made In Czechoslovakia. All the paperwork that came with the gun is written in Czech. The gun is not marked US anywhere etc.
Paperwork we have for both of them.
Original purchase receipt
AE Form 190-6A (Firearms Retention Authorization)
AE Form 190-6C-R (Notification Of Firearm(s) Purchase)
ATF From 6 (Application And Permit For Importation Of Fireams, Ammunition And Implements Of War)
Original box w/ cleaning brush, factory test target, and engineering Inspection slip from CZ, along with both original 12 round magazines.
The one with the trigger lock is the one currently with my FIL. As you can see on the slide of the other gun, there are no import markings and that they were made in Czechoslovakia.
There's an extra picture of the one here with its older brother a 1953 CZ-52. Paid $250.00 for the CZ-52 with two magazines, holster, 100 rounds of ammo and a manual for it.
