I just bought a set for my CZ 83 from czechoslovakia_1  on Ebay. I'll let you know if these are actually ORIGINAL as advertised.

Setting price aside, is there a website that sells good looking wood grips for the 83 that are typically in stock? Somewhere with a high reputation for making grips that will fit without modification?

CZ 83 grips

Just some FYIs - Klinsky has an “anatom” version that is a thicker grip (I like them for two-handed hold). I would say there’s a high probability you won’t encounter any fitting issues. They still might not accept credit cards but use bank transfers or PayPal (usually not a good exchange rate). I use a service like TransferWise to get the best rate and fees for international bank transfers.





(L-R) - Marschal (Zebrawood); Grips4u (needed lots of internal sanding...very tight for inserting and removing magazines); Klinsky anatom. Personal preference ranking...Marschal, Klinsky. Not a fan of Grips4u design...besides the magazine issue, the Grips4u has a shape at the bottom front that doesn’t flow with the frame and makes for a slightly sharp edge.

Re:exchange rates...when I bought the grips for my '70, I checked the going rates, and when the transaction went thru, the rates were the same...pretty much what you would find anywhere else...maybe I was lucky that day... BTW...nice looking collection!!

My '70 with the Klinsky grips, they fit like a glove right out of then package...

FWIW..I ordered a set of walnut grips for my 83 from CZ...had to sand the inside a bit to get the mag to drop free...but other than that, perfect fit and finish... The Klinskys for the CZ 70 had no issues at all...went right on just like OEM..

Has anyone else tried the CZ OEM walnut grips?

I bought a set of grips from an eBay seller that were removed from a commercial  model CZ83 for my 88" milsurp 83 on which the grips were beat up.
What I noticed when the grips arrived what that the frame must have been modified during the course of the production run at CZ. So the angles of the frame where the grip contacts the pistol in the area of the safety  need to be properly contoured for the frame.
It seems that grip fit  will vary depending  on year of manufacture as they clearly  are not the same.
So if your buying after market grips make sure that they are appropriate for your production era.
I modified my grips  and they now fit my milsurp gun perfectly. I have all the correct tools . I'm an instrument tech. So its not some huge deal for me.
I like the stock black plastic grips. I'm OK with that ...
Took about 20 minutes .
