    I bought mine a couple of years ago from Cole Dist., Scottsville, KY. It was listed on Gun Broker and they hand picked it ~ even sent pics for my approval prior to sending any money.

    I don't know if they currently have any ~ but great folks to deal with. There are several on Gun Broker that look good.

    even if you get a perfect one, if you actually carry it or use it, it will wear. that painted on finish is junk. either accept that, or refinish it :D

    UM, 83's are blued, not polycoat, or at least the ones I've seen.

    Why not just get a CZ 82? They are essentially the SAME gun just with a slightly more powerful (albeit harder to find in some cases) projectile. They are usually a lot cheaper than a CZ 83. The finish is usually crap on them, but you can either touch it up or just not worry about it....I mean if it's a carry gun what's the point of being worried about the finish?

    Unless I'm mistaken, I believe the finishes include: satin nickel, glossy blue and black polycoat.

    I have a satin nickel and glossy blue.

    I bought this one back in 2008. Not sure what the finish is. The slide seems more parkerized than blue, at least not a glossy blue??? The frame is definitely blued not painted. This one was sold as a European police trade in. Its been a great carry gun.
