If you want a CZ-75 with a pimp nickel finish, then I guess that is a good deal.

I don't remember Springfield offering nickel plated P9's, and the add mentions a "custom" plating, so I'd assume it's post-factory.

General consensus on the Springfield P9 is, it was about the top of the line of the CZ-75 clones.

As in almost all of the clones of the CZ, the P9 was made by Tanfoglio in Italy and finished here in the states by Springfield.

These are very good quality guns, accurate, reliable, and durable.

Price-wise, that seems high.
I bought a P9 in the late 1980's at $280.00, factory-direct.

The days of $300 P9s are long gone.:( Springfield did market a nickel model but it was a flat brushed finish not a shiny pimp coating.:neener: I missed out on a NIB blued P9 at a show last year. It was selling for $350 but someone beat me to it.:cuss:

Tecolote,

Are you still looking for a nice P9? If so email me. I have a slightly used (less then 1000 rnds) low serial number 9mm with a bunch of normal capacity magazines (not 10rnds). Wooden grips, nice gun, quite accurate.

I own 2 of the P9s in .40SW, a longslide ported version and a compact. They are great pistols, a true best-kept secret of the CZ family.

Note: P9s don't take CZ mags without a little modification to the CZ Mag's catch. However, P9s can use TZ and EAA mags with no problem.

If the plating was done correctly and the pistol is truely in like new condition, then I would say $395 is a fair price. If it was cheaply plated, then the plating is likely to flake and peel easily, resulting in a mess that will need to be stripped and refinished.
