The CZ 83 is a semi-automatic medium-frame pistol chambered in .380 ACP, and is produced by Czech arms manufacturer Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod.
The CZ 83 has a blowback design, so the initial explosion for gun powder pushes the slide back as well as forcing the projectile out of the barrel.
The Model 83 has an all-steel construction, plastic grips, and cold hammer forged steel barrel. During hammer forging, a mandrel is carefully passed through the bore to carve the rifled grooves. The process increases durability and precision. Features include a manual safety and fixed 3-dot sights.
