I have a CZ 83 that I was thinking of selling. When I look around it appears prices have gone up a bit on CZs. Seems like it wasn't long ago 75's were around $325 and 83's were just under $300. Now I see 83's for $339 everywhere I've looked. Am I just not finding the best prices? What's a really nice blue 83 with the factory wood grips and three 10 rounders worth?

The price you have in mind is fair....around 300-325$ would be in order.
The odds are its a 380....and the price would be fair, if its a Makarov 9x18 its too cheap and if its the 32 ACP model......maybe a little much.
The wood grips are good but dont over tighten them or youll get cracks. Ive had a couple of pairs....
Given the market, your location and the gun.....you should sell it soon.

I bought mine NIB for $319 OTD. But months later, out of a need for cash, I sold it for ( IIRC ) $260 . . . . . and it was still NIB! I never got a chance to fire it.
Now it's back on my list of firearms to get.
It was, BTW, the BEST/SMOOTHEST DA trigger I've ever felt!

If I wasn't saving my pennies for some gun leather from HBE ;), I'd probably make an offer.
Why are you selling, if it's not too much to ask? I almost sold my CZ83 once, and I've been thanking my lucky stars ever since that I kept it. It feels and handles so well in my hand, it's almost as if this wonderful gun was designed just for me.

It just never makes it out of the safe. I don't CCW it, too big for my tastes there. I'm kind of looking for a lightweight snubbie so thought I'd offer a trade/sale. Guess I bought it for the great trigger. I''l post it when I get a good picture.
