These where designed and manufactured in Soviet Union for (originally) Makarov pistol modification that was expected to be produced in Czechoslovakia just like other com. block countries produced their versions. Later Czechoslovakia settled to produce their version most different from soviet, designated VZ82(VZOR82)-translated-model82 and known here as CZ82, CZ abbreviation of factory name-Česká Zbrojovka located in Uherský Brod, Check Republic . It was agreed that Soviet factory will, never the less supply them with some accessories, like this shoulder holster. Each one had to go through Quality Control Department check (in Russian its "Отдел Технического Контроля" or abbreviated "OTK"), where it received stamp "OTK" that you can see placed on each of them as it passed that through that check point. These historical holsters spent decades in storage in Czechoslovakia, (now Czech and Slovak Republics are separate sovereign states). They are O.K for CZ82/83, Walther PPK, Makarov Pistol, many other types of non soviet Makarovs and other compact pistols. They do have some storage wear and no uniformity of color (what can be corrected if you know how) Leather condition is excellent, somewhat hardened from long storage (that I actually like). Could be practically used as concealment holster, as it was intended for police Nice conversation piece too. Ship as soon as paid, usually same day if USPS open. Vertical pistol positioning holsters are better for concealment then horizontal, but according to some opinions could slow draw. Matter of preference. If you want to give me your measurements I'd set it up and adjust it for your custom fit before shipping, that's easy. Questions welcome. I do not come with a holster, nor does mirror , or anything else you see in reflection, just a holster, though it is well worth it and I think you'll like it.

Bought this for my CZ82. My last holster like this got pissed on by the cats so I was happy to find a replacement on Amazon. Paid about 4 times more than my first one (I guess they're becoming scarcer) and the leather seems like its a thinner type and the fit isn't as good as my first one. For these reasons I'm limiting my review to 4 stars.
Works as stated
here is a video that shows how the holster is worn and how to make it fit us larger folks leaving space between the leathers connecting them with only the thin leather strap.[...] I think it will be comfortable once it is broken in as the over the shoulder strap is wide enough to support a pistol much heavier than the CZ-82.
I'm sorry I missed out when CZ-USA sold them off for $5.00 when CZ-USA discontinued the CZ-83 I don't see them at gun shows any more either.
This holster is a good answer to the question of how to carry in car in the winter time if you have a CZ-82 or CZ-83.
The one I received had supple leather with no cracks and elastic is fine. It does look as It the elastic may have been replaced at some point as most images so white elastic. While the leather is in good shape it is a bit dry and was never treated when new. I am going to call Pecard Leather products to find out which of their leather products 40 year old NIB holsters...
