Found this at the local gun show back in February 2015. $250.00 out the door with the holster, cleaning rod, 2 magazines, lanyard, 100 rounds of ammo, and a manual.
The holster is marked "Crossed Swords 53". The Gun is also marked the same "Crossed Swords 53" so both were made in 1953, with a VOZ 83 for a 1983 refurb date. The SN's match all the way around. Typical markings all the way around from what I have read. There is a "BRNO M/52 7.62mm HƆƎZƆ" marking with "Czech" upside-down which I've been told is the importers mark. But what company marked them that way?
The gun has a gray parkerized or phosphate finish, little to no wear on the finish. In the one picture you can see the difference in the color when compared to its younger brother a CZ-83 I brought back from Germany in 1992. If anyone can add some more information or knowledge, I would be highly appreciative.
70 rounds are marked 947 82, which would be Chinese ammo correct? And 30 rounds are marked Star 10 52 3, which would be Bulgarian ammo correct?
