    Found a NIB 75B SemiCompact for $375 OTD. Like a fool, I have sold off my CZ handguns and now want to fill in the void. I know nothing about this model, nor can I find anything on the cz- czechs webapge.

    What is the consensous on this model? I can't find the the 75B regular or compacr for less- NIB so I hope to pounce on this deal before is disapears!

    Get it now. The semi-compact, if the real thing, was never a stocked item for CZ-USA. I have heard of a few floating around, but not many.

    I have one. I paid 400 OTD and I feel like I got a great deal. It shoots like a dream, and I haven't had any issues with it at all.

    I would by another if I ran accross one for the same price.

    It uses the short slide, and 75 frame. Pretty rare.

    With the full-size frame and magazine capacity, and the short slide, it could be considered CZ's equivalent of the .38 snub-nose revolver, but with more firepower. I have one in a two-tone finish, nice pistol.

    Conversely, if you mate the full-size slide with the compact frame, you have something that bears a striking resemblance to the Browning/FN Hi-Power.

    Think of it as CZechnologically advanced.

    Thanks Gary,

    I was in the market for a CZ75 Compact, and the best my local purveyor of fine (read: CZ) firearms can quote me is $459 for the polycoat, and $479 for the gloss. I will have to CZech out the Kentucky operation.

    You notice that the slide is marked 'CZ75 Semicompact', yet has the firing-pin block in the cocking serrations. To my mind, this should be a 'CZ75B Semicompact'. Maybe they ran out of space on the slide. Who knows, but I will enjoy mine.

    The Semi-Compact has not been in the last couple of CZ-USA catalogs, but I understand that some have been available through a distributor named Jerry's. The boxes were marked on the label as a 'Jerry's Special' at one time.

    It makes an interesting addition to a CZ75 collection, yes?

    I enjoy mine too. $350 a year ago.

    Amusing how mentioning a less common item on this list brings owners out of the wood work, making the uncommon seem very common. :D

    That's how mine is marked.

    Well I will buy it then. It is out of state thus I will go through the usual process to obtain it. CARPE DIEM!

    Mr.Trooper- your pictures are great! Thanks to all those of you who replied. More responses are encouraging.

    It is not unusual for CZs not being roll marked with the "B" for the firing pin block: the CZ 75 P-01, CZ 75 Compact, CZ 75 D PCR, CZ 75 Compact .40, CZ 75 SP-01, etc, etc, etc.
