Makarov P-83 Pistol 9x18mm with 2 mags, cleaning rod and holster
Stock is running VERY VERY LOW....
Only a few left and these are hand select surplus P-83 Makarovs. We include 2 magazines, a cleaning rod and the original leather holster with each pistol. All have been test-fired by our staff to ensure function. As these are SURPLUS FIREARMS they will undoubtedly need a good cleaning.
The P-83 Wanad is a single-action and double-action Polish semi-automatic pistol, chambered for the 9×18mm Makarov cartridge with a single stack 8-round box magazine and was designed by Ryszard Chełmicki and Marian Gryszkiewicz of the state research institute Ośrodek Badawczo-Rozwojowy in Radom. The P-83 succeeded the P-64 as the sidearm for the Polish Army and police. The P-83 is still in limited use by both the Polish police and the Polish military but it has been mostly replaced by Glock 19 pistols in Police service and partially by the indigenous WIST 94 pistol in the Polish military. This is NOT a C&R gun.
It is formed primarily of sheet metal stampings which have been blued.
The pistol has an external case extractor on the slide which actuates a loaded chamber indicator (which, both visually and tactilely, indicates the presence of a round in the chamber). There is a manual safety lever on the left side of the slide with the upward position being "Safe" and the lower position being "Fire" (there is a red dot on the slide which is hidden by the safety when in "Safe"). The "Safe" position de-cocks the hammer while the trigger remains in the single-action position, and drops the firing pin down to a position where the hammer face is milled out to prevent contact with the pin. Additionally, the firing pin has a hook designed into the rearmost portion that will engage with the rear of the slide to prevent forward movement when the safety is engaged. When the safety is disengaged, the trigger will return to full forward extension to allow a double-action first trigger pull. The P-83 also has a hammer block safety, similar to some revolvers.
The P-83 has a traditional European heel magazine release and a lanyard loop on the left side at the base of the grip. The magazine release is tensioned by the hammer spring as a simplification measure.
