Default CZ 75 short rail - 1975

This is the main attraction, the star of the show. I was going to buy only this one but then we agreed on what I consider a good deal on two guns including the 1978 I posted separately. I paid 1750.- Swiss francs for the pair, which is equivalent to 1960.- US$.

So, number 01056, one of 54 produced in 1975 (plus 5 prototypes). I understand those were pre-production examples, as the real production only started in 1977 (and only 18 were produced in 1976).

It is also in great condition, almost as new and no apparent wear (I have not field stripped it yet). One mag only, serialised to the gun, no box or manual.















The extractor has a plum colour



The trigger is black and serrated instead of silver and smooth on the production models

SWEEEeeeeeet .....................collectable from behind the "Iron Curtain"

IIRC; read that the CZ75 was the choice handgun of the Russian Spetsnaz back in the day.

Outstanding. $1960 USD for the pair ? That's about half price here.

Nice Classic, but leave it to you. lol
CZ's are so under rated here in the US!
I love em, this is my Tangfoglio, EAA Witness, Compact 10mm (4.25) in the Wonder Finish that was a direct derivative and copied from the CZ's because they didn't offer a 10mm back then. Even the controls on the left side are the same too. I believe CZ has added 10mm to their line up now.
You can see the similarities, Tangfoglio's are mfg. in Italy mainly for competition and get rave reviews.

I took both to the 25 meters indoor range today.

Shot the 1978 first



Seems to shoot a tad left for me

I bought a cheap MTM rest from Brownells, to confirm







Yep, confirmed

Then the 1975











Better centred for me

The 1975 seems to have a better trigger pull, I’ll need to measure them. However the serrated trigger is quite aggressive on the trigger finger.

What a thrill shooting those historical firearms
