    75 compact, Polycoat, used, in good shape, with 3 high cap mags. Price= $325. What do you guys think about that price? I got my 75 BD for $339. with one high cap and a ten rounder NIB at a differant shop. Thanks...

    Sounds high to me, especially when they're not much more new. What are they going for new, $399.00 to $415.00?

    CZ 75B Compact

    Assuming that the full capacity magazines are CZ factory magazines, $325.00 is a very good price for the package.

    I have two CZ 75B Compacts. I paid more that $325.00 for both of mine.

    Full-cap Compact mags are very hard to find.

    If they're factory mags with the curved metal base plate snap it up. Like Schmackey said CZ Compact prebans are tough to find. :) Make sure the mag base plates look like the one in the pic.

    I did not see any CZ markings on the mags and I do not recall if the base plates were curved but, I will check them out again. I did handel all the mags and a curve does not stick out in my mind.

    The curved base plate is the easiest way to find out if the mags are CZ factory. If they don't have the distinctive base plate then they're probably aftermarket mags.

    There is a gun shop just out side the neighborhood that my parents live in. I never had a chance to go in there, but my dad said his prices where high. How high you ask. Well when I finally got a chance to stop in and look I found a SS CZ 75B Compact with a $575 price tag. :what:

    So in comparison I'd say you found a pretty good deal.

    Gotcha beat. A pawn shop told me once that the 91/30 they had there was worth $400. Don't worry, I made it out the door before I broke out into laughter. I think I need to go back there today to see if they still have it. Betcha they do.

    Anyway... sounds like a deal to me! CZ Prices seem to be going up and up and up every year. Get 'em at a good price while you can. Eventually people are going to figure it out and realize what they're worth :)

    Sounds like a good deal to me. I just bought 2 CZ compact 9MM mags (hi-caps) for $40.00 each and I see the seller has his remaining 2 priced at $65.00 each. I bought them for my PO1.

    Compact buy

    If you end up with the compact I have a holster for sale in the want ads. Its a leather one made by FIST for the compact. Just doesnt fit my body.

    UPDATE!!!

    Got a chance to check out the compact better today. The three high caps with it are factory prebans with the cureved base plates so I took it home! Now for a good cleaning and a quick range trip to check it out. The CZ colllection is growing.....

    Litlman;

    Good going. You got a great deal! I'll bet that you will love the CZ Compact. It is an excellent pistol.

    Best regards,

    Those are suprisingly nice pistols. Very accurate too. Can't beat that price either!:)

    Uh - oh, I may be about to get very cranky.

    Factory Cz 75 Compact mags have a curved base plate?

    The brand new CZ75 Compact I bought several months ago came with two mags, both have flat baseplates.

    S'okay, 14 days till AWB death, and CZ-USA has a whole stack of new standard cap magazines waiting for the hour to be struck.

    Took it out this AM. Ran about 100 rounds through it. Only one mild jam with win.w. box. Racked slide and it cleared. High caps all ran well except one only took 10 rounds. Could this be a standard rd. mag. with a curved base or, just messed up? I will take it apart and check it out. The trigger was realy smooth both double and single action . C&L looks like a good option with alot more practice.This is another pistol that shoots better than me.
