Congrats! P-83's are pretty hard to come by....

I hunted on an off for a year before I found mine.
- If you're looking for spare mags or other pieces try searching
"P-83" on Gun Broker.

Regards, Todds SS

The machining is very crude but I like two things about this pistol. The pull tab to remove slide vrs. moving the trigger guard like similar pistols and the mag release which acts like a button.

Nice. I have been stocking up on 9 x 18mm, whenever I see it. When I get 1,000 rounds, I'll just keep it at that level.

I have only shot my P-83 twice now. Shoots great and very accurate.
