The gun was in fantastic condition. Looks better than described on the site and in my honest opinion has the smoothest action out of all of my modest and classic guns and felt recoil is less than that of all of my Makarovs.
bought the base version(219$) quality was great.the used holster fit great,but most important the gun shot great.a pleasure to shoot.highly recommend this pistol,and you can't beat the price.also very fast delivery.
An excellent value on a pistol to come out of an historic factory. If there was any Cosmoline on the one J&G hand picked for me (and do be sure to choose Hand Select, I've never been sorry I did), they scrubbed every spot of it off before shipping. You can't beat blowback action for accuracy, and the rails on the slide are like greased butter. The trigger snaps like celery, and so far this thing has eaten every kind of ammo I've put through it, including HP.
I have to knock a star off just because of how hard it's going to be to find NOS parts, or even new-manufacture parts and accessories (especially magazines).
The P83 I received was in good shape, obviously used and carried, but still in great shape with just a bit of finish wear. The construction is interesting, it is made almost entirely of stampings. The recoil is a bit sharp because it is a blowback pistol, but the gun shoots nice. Get one while you can, surplus guns always go up in cost!
