Nice gun. Too much money though but at the end of the day value is what the market will support and some one thought it was worth the price so that's that.

My sentiments too, especially when I'm also guilty of putting too much value into refurbishing something that a rational market would not return (for now ) but it's something that I appreciate.

"CZ 75 Compact"
Says Semi Compact right on the Slide
The OM is for a CZ85
And the Colorfile looks like it was done with a Crayon....not good
"Looks unfired"
Very odd
So tell me again how Trump will be worse then the last 8 years !

Just noticed CZ custom has listed some custom CZ 75 semi-compacts on their web site.

I'm curious about these.  I haven't seen a new semi-compact in quite a while.  I didn't think they were making them anymore.  Anyway, that's very dear for no better than what the trigger is advertised to be.

I think the CZC ad is for a single Semi Compact that has been worked on by the shop. They have done occasional refurbishments on some surplus pistols and add upgrades in addition to refinishing it.

Yowzers! CZC worked-on guns ain't cheap. I have a semi-compact Masada CZ and it shoots just about as good as my SP01 Shadow - or should I say I shoot them both about the same. I also have a Sphinx SDP compact with a full-size grip, if that counts.

CZC link now has a photo. Looks like a "franken" pistol using a 2016 frame with a 2013 Compact slide. Wish they had used a different name than the classic Semicompact for this one.

Yeah, looks like a B-SA style Frame
Don't really care much for Rollmarks on the Slide

Eew, just saw the picture.  I much prefer the traditional rollmark.

I get that CZC would want to differentiate it from a standard CZUB product but the fonts here and on the A01 prototypes need some refining to exude class and not brass. I'm just happy that CZUB still doesn't inscribe a safety manual on their guns like many manufacturers these days.

I'm pretty sure Angus mentioned on a video somewhere that CZC is actually making their own guns pretty much from scratch. I believe the frames on the second two in the pictures above are CZC made and perhaps the slide on the semi compact - either that or they milled off the original rollmarks or bought slide blanks from CZC?
