Default CZ 75B in bright nickel?

At my local gun shop I saw what was purported to be a factory bright nickel finish 75b. I know CZ made matte finish guns but I've never seen a bright one before, so I was wondering if this was a factory job or something aftermarket.
It was one serious hunk of bling!

I don't think CZ every made nickeled CZ75s that were from the factory.

It’s a factory polished stainless finish I always wanted one. One word, sexy.

I have the polished stainless 75B, and it is serious bling. When I picked it up at my gun club FFL and was waiting at the counter to complete the paperwork, literally everyone walking by stopped to look at it in the open box.


It's the favorite handgun of my bling loving eldest granddaughter.

I have always thought a stainless 75b would be the ultimate evolution for the CZ 75b. I bought a polished CZ 75b last summer. It is a beautiful pistol, easily confused with a nickeled finish. As mentioned in the previous posts, it rates high in “bling” factor. And it is a shooter, like my other 75b, so a win - win.

Interestingly, the bright stainless version has an ambi safety but the matt finish model does not. I am a lefty.

CZ-75's are available in satin nickel, satin stainless, and bright stainless, but not bright nickel, at least not that I'm aware of. I wouldn't mind having a satin stainless CZ, but they are rarer than hen's teeth around here.

I’ve got a matte stainless and it’s one of my favorite pistols. It’s what I carry when I’m not concerned with concealment like on the motorcycle.

Bright stainless is discontinued per their website, though Buds has a handful in stock.
I wouldn’t mind owning a CZ75D Compact in bright stainless or even matte stainless.
