21
Since the end of 1983, this model has been mass-produced by the enterprises of the state-owned arms factory Cesko-slovenska Zbrojovka (CZ).

Weapons were supplied to both their own armed forces and the police, and for export.

Pistol CZ 83, caliber 7,65 mm


Action automatic pistol CZ 83 based on the use of recoil energy. The weapon has a fixed barrel and a free gate. The shutter extractor and ejector hole are located on the right side. Auxiliary elements (fuse and magazine retainer) are located on both sides. Fuse striker is missing.
Pistol CZ 83 is equipped with a slide lock, which is not typical for pistols of this caliber. After the last cartridge is released, the bolt remains in the rear position. After replacing the empty magazine with a full one and activating the magazine release lever, moving the bolt forward and feeding the cartridge into the chamber, the weapon will be ready to fire.


CZ 83 pistol, 9 caliber mm


In order to use the gun even with gloves, the trigger was designed accordingly. More durable grip than model grip CZ 50 and CZ 70, became more massive at the expense of a larger store. The cartridges are located in the store in two rows. Thanks to the holes in the store, you can determine how many cartridges are in it. The thickness of the weapon is 36 mm, the length of the groove pitch - 250 mm.

The aiming mechanism consists of a constant sight with a wide slit and a small front sight for fast aiming with transverse grooves. With the help of white markings for use in the dark, located on the front sight and on both sides of the sight, you can quickly point the weapon at the target. You can shoot with cocked or self-cocked, overcoming the resistance 1,5 kg, which lengthens the trigger path.

A weapon that can be used by left-handers without restriction has a convenient bend in the handle and fits well in a hand. Even with a high frequency of shots, you can keep the target under the gun. The plastic cheeks of the handle have a thumb groove and grooves to ensure a firm grip. The handle and side surfaces of the shutter are polished and blackened. In addition to the 7,65 caliber pistol mm, CZ enterprises produce the 83 model in another version - with a larger caliber, but a smaller magazine capacity that uses ammo browning xnumxxxnumx.

    A good gun, but for 7,65x17 and 9x17 it is large and rather heavy in comparison with PM. In Pmov’s caliber, it has a trunk with polygonal rifling. The device is more difficult than PM. On the plus side there is a latch and magazine capacity and a double-sided pre, more convenient handle. The reliability is worse than PM. IMHO, PM is better.

        And in my opinion this is another "opus" on the theme of Walter the policeman (like the PM), and as far as I can tell, the main drawback of the PM is called the low-power 9x18 cartridge, the ChZeta cartridge is even weaker than 9x17. two-handedness. "The big" plus "of this scheme in general, can be attributed to the motionless, rigidly fixed barrel. And yet, as an" officer's personal weapon "(in my non-professional opinion) is better than the GSH-18, nothing was seen.

          Both PM and Walter, and both of these Zeta products of their time. In fact, these are the last examples of their era. Then came the protective equipment that brought to zero all the advantages of these pistols. GSH-18 is also a product of its time only to some people did not like, and therefore it will not be in the army. There will be specimens like the Yarygin pistol, with which to hammer nails at the time.

            I was shooting from "Viking", the same PYa only "sports". Severe infection. But compared to the Glock 18 (I also fired from it, compared it), the Viking has less barrel toss when fired. But the Glock is pretty damn comfortable to hold. And the Viking sights are so-so, not convenient.

              He shot from СZ-75 and from Glock 17, handsome Ceset beats, but he can hardly get out of a glock from a head of 10 meters, throws it up strongly, but is comfortable in his hand and is reliable.

        The Czechs have some kind of "mania" to take someone else's sample and bring it to a certain perfection ... In general, the company "ChZet" is a BRAND

          Note. In PM and Walter PP, the similarity is only external, and the device is different. But at PM and Chi-ZET the DEVICE is the same. This is because at the time the Ceska Zbroevka factory produced a LICENSE PM, the predecessor of the Czech Chi-Zet. bully

      Well, if we take a file, it’s better to drill a recess in it, although it’s more difficult but the effect is better) But we live by convention)))

      Bullets such as "dum-dum" are prohibited in military weapons, for your information, at the beginning of the last century. hi

          the convention, of course, is delusional, and "looking back" at such a thing is stupidity. Weapons designed to kill should do it with the greatest efficiency. It is clear that nothing needs to be filed: when it hits something that can pierce, the plug-in rod open in front will "go" further, and the channel formed in the pool will trigger to open or break

        Almost all powerful revolver cartridges have been fired at this convention. Almost all powerful revolver cartridges are issued either with a flat front part of a bullet or with a recess. To increase stopping power. times in a civilized society is not welcome.

    Good health to all.
    Previously, the Czechoslovak People's Army, and after the division of the Republic, the Army of the Czech Republic (AČR) was armed with a vz.82 pistol. The version for the civilian sector and for export was called the CZ 83. Currently, the Czech Republic Army has armed itself with the new CZ 75 SP-01 PHANTOM pistol (information in the open press, for example, on the MO server - army.cz or czub.cz). For us, as users of new pistols, the difference is noticeable. With a new pistol, the probability of hitting a target with a first shot has increased many times, even with instinctive shooting.

    And why does the author stubbornly call the CZ83 an automatic pistol, since the rate of fire is not indicated?
    This is a classic self-loading pistol, http: //armyman.info/pistolety-i-revolvery/9981-cz-83.html. Before writing something, it would be nice to study the topic.

    Normal pistol, in vain you are so. True, I shot from a Viking, but I think the difference between them is only in the number of rounds in the store.
