So at the end of the day if 75% of the bidders think the CZ shortrail is worth $2k then that's what it's worth.

People need to get over the idea that they're going to find an original Short Rail for anything like that kind of money. The only way that will happen is the aformentioned garage/estate sale where the people don't know what they have. The last few on GB all went for in the neighborhood of $3.5K. Even a CZ Custom Shop repro is $2400, and that is not even a real CZ, let alone an original Short Rail.

A short rail CZ75 in what appears to be mint condition just went for $3,295 on GunBroker.

☹️No drama tonight....not even close to the ending time; no last second counter bid. All you need is one minimum bidder. Congrats on the sale, bobofthedesert.

I'm shocked someone paid that price.

You shouldn't be. Of the last 4 that sold on GB, two of them went for $3.5K, the one with an original non-numbered box/spare mag/manual for $3750 and the other one which had considerable finish wear, wood grips and a non-standard rear sight (there are Short Rails that were factory built with rear sights, a couple different varieties, this just wasn't one of them) went for $2750. Which, when you think about a CZ Custom Shop Reproduction going for $2400 is completely understandable, since it's not an original Short Rail. A reproduction will never be anything but that.

This one was not quite mint. It had a spot of wear to the blueing at the heel of the back strap, (more of a rub mark I think since there was no other wear to the blueing on the back or front strap which was flawless) a small scratch above the slide release, some edge wear at the front left of the slide and a tiny speck about an inch back of that on the top edge, all of this visible in the pics. Still very nice though and not easy to find any better, after 40 years even the best of them has picked up a flaw of some kind.

☹️No drama tonight....not even close to the ending time; no last second counter bid. All you need is one minimum bidder. Congrats on the sale, bobofthedesert.

Thank you Sir.

Save your pennies guys, Short Rails are like land, the original manufacturer isn't making any more of them.....and there's just something special about that gun. Ask anyone who owns one.
