    Zastava M83 Revolver

    I just found out today that the Zastava factory in Serbia (ex Yugoslavia) makes .357-Magnum revolvers. This is the same factory that makes my AK-47 M92 pistol. Who knew?

    Cabela's has them on sale this week for $280. That seems like a decent price, but I'm not planning to get one. Looks interesting, tho.

    Anybody heard of these? Any comments?

    That's a new one to me; looks interesting, though! First revolver I've seen that has a triggerguard hook that you see on many semiautos and almost no one ever uses.

    Never heard of this gun. It is interesting, very cheap, probably a "get what you pay for" deal. Cheapo revolvers (especially) in high pressure magnum chamberings sketch me out a little.

    I was not aware of it at all. Not sure if I would want to buy a new imported magnum revolver without knowing more about the construction. It may very well be a fine piece, but I will wait and see what the market does with it for now.

    It seems the interwebs has yet to form an opinion. I can't find any professional reviews; most of what I find are threads like this on various forums. Seems that if they are new, they were produced many years ago and never sold. The rear sight in indeed as flat as it looks in the photo above. And if anyone else says to themselves "boy, that rear cylinder gap is almost invisible!", it's a shrouded cylinder. There's a ring of steel around the protruding case rims.

    I just checked the Zastava website, and it's not even listed.

    Personally, I do not want my finger that close to the barrel/cylinder gap.

    Has anyone seen the SAR revolvers anywhere?
