I've been a shooter/gun owner for about 10 years, got into it in my mid-20's, but I had a lot of firsts for me today. I've never bought a used gun, never bought anything off gunbroker, never restored a gun, and never owned anything "old". All of that changed today. I bought a CZ 83 in 380 acp on gunbroker. Originally I had wanted a CZ 82 in 9x18 Mak, but considering the 380 is still a popular cartridge I figured ammo would be easier to find for the 83. From the looks of it the gun appears to have been made in the mid to late 80's. It is marked 'made in Czechoslovakia' rather than Czech Republic. It also has the round trigger guard rather than the squared one. It is in relatively good shape based on the pics on gunbroker, but I guess I won't know for sure until I take possession. Price was $219, but shipping and transfer fee will add to it. My plan is to assess the condition if the gun, deem what needs to be replaced, and eventually have it professionally refinished. Anyone have any experience with the CZ 82/83? Any advice would be appreciated, either on the gun or restorations in general. I'll post some pics after I pick it up.
