In the April 2012 issue, Gun Tests magazine tested three semi-automatic rimfire rifles that showed promise of being more than just plinkers. They were the $325 Savage Arms model 64 TR SR V No. 45200 22 LR, CZ-USA's $465 model 512, and the $595 Remington 597 TVP. Following is an excerpt from that test, used with permission:
CZ USA CZ 83 No. 91302 380 ACP, $522
The CZ 83, now available from CZ USA, located in Kansas City, Kansas (www.cz-usa.com), has been in the catalog in one form or another since 1982. That's when the Czechoslovakian military received its 380-caliber pistols. The Model 83 appeared the following year for civilian sales.The CZ 83 is also available chambered for 32 ACP. The 380-caliber models come finished in blue steel or satin stainless. The satin-nickel slide on our CZ 83 was stamped Cal. 9 Browning Court. This is yet another name for 380 Auto.
Gun Tests Magazine recently tested a Makarov in a larger caliber, 9x18 (about $150). It was blued, and had plastic stocks and fixed sights. It had a safety that dropped its hammer. It was well preserved, and about thirty years old.
