Manufactured in 1983 the CZ 83 or Vz 82 replaced the 7.62x25mm Tokarev Vz. 52 pistol in the Czechoslovak military. The CZ 83 is a conventional blowback action pistol allowing the barrel to remain solidly fixed to the frame, resulting in improved accuracy over pistols with pivoting barrels. The low bore axis provides for less muzzle rise and quicker follow-up shots. Excellent condition.
