I received the P-83 in about a week. I was very surprised with the excellent condition of the pistol. It was like getting a new pistol. The chamber and rifling are in excellent shape and the mechanical appear almost new. Just a little cleaning and lubrication and then to the range. Thanks to J&G for making these available in the USA. Thanks also to the FFL for their much appreciated help.
Better than I thought it would be, the bluing is 90 to 95 percent with a near perfect bore. The holster is a little tight and needs some breaking in, I don't think it was issued. This was my first j&g purchase and I'm very happy with it.
I am completely happy with this little P83. This year I decided to collect only 9x18 Maks and this was an excellent addition to my cold war collection. The condition was better than I expected but I choose the hand select so it was in VG condition. I stripped it down, cleaned it all up, and took it shooting. I was surprised at the close grouping but being a fixed barrel blow back design it was to be expected. Those 9x18 blow-back pistols are quite accurate. The P-83 replaced the older P64, which is also a snappy little shooter and they used a different technique in manufacturing keeping cost lower by stamping and welding instead of machining. Although that made it a little lighter it still has some heft to it. I did not need to replace the recoil spring because it doesn't look like many rounds had been fired through this. I like JG Sales and this is the first pistol I have purchased from them and will always keep them bookmarked for any future purchases
