Grabbed this today. Not extremely rare, but definitely different.
What’s up Reb. So it’s actually a 75B. What it is, is basically a rendition of a pre B. It’s a Cold War edition. The make them in batches of 1000. As I know it, they have made 4 batches. Of course now that I own one, I hope they stop production on them lol.Very nice CZ75B, looks new Comrade. Produced under communist control of CZ. Not sure but the trigger guard is more rounded than my CZ75B SA. So it looks like it might be an earlier model. You can check out more info on the CZ forum.
I have always been a 1911 guy, until I shot a CZ75B SA in 9 mm and a CZ97 in 45 acp. Both are tack drivers. LT Col Jeff Cooper had high praise for the CZ75B.

I agree on the VZ grips! The stock ones were awesome but the VZ added a better look as well as a more aggressive grip. The top left is as Sp01 I added the grips too.@Gen1Loader, Yes it's a Pre-75B model. My phone battery was almost dead when I posted the last comment.
It's an awesome pistol, Congratulations to you!!!
As I recall you should only dry fire the pistol with a "Snap Cap" to avoid the bending the "Firing Pin - coiled pin" #57 on the diagram. It's the coiled pin in the slide infront of the hammer. (See attached pdf). A replacement solid pin is a great idea to avoid that issue.
CZ Custom is a great business to find replacement parts for CZ pistols.
VZ Grips makes outstanding grips for the pistol.
The only issue that I have is we are limited in options for replacement sights. Once again. CZ Custom or Cajun Gun Works has more options for replacement sights.
Magazines options: I have compared CZ factory magazines to aftermarket magazines, the best option I have found is Metgar Magazines, which are half the cost of the factory mags, I get them from Gun Mag Warehouse.
