    Another strange thing in my perusal of auctions. A CZ-75 in otherwise OK shape with holes drilled through the frame - both sides. I am trying to figure out why someone would do this? To mount a laser on it? Is it just some strange "bubba-ing"? They knocked hundreds of dollars value off it. Any opinions what they were trying to accomplish?

    Probably used to mount a red dot sight or a similar optic.

    That was someones competiton pistol. Those holes were the attachment point for a rail to hold a red dot optic.

    Boy that's a special bubba. Rail type install would be my guess. Or just trying to make it lighter.

    Perhaps they could not find the right spot for the auto sear.....

    Oh my! What a horrible thing to do to a CZ 75. Well at least no one tried to fix it by cramming some JB Weld in the holes.

    Removed the bubba-bolt-on bayonet lug for NY.:evil:

    At least it was one of those horribly marked ones so that the next owner has even more reason to (weld up and) refinish it.

    Hope the next owner gets it cheap enough.

    For an old school red dot with integral mount, like one of these:

    I had a Coonan set up with one of these way back when :D

    They are speed holes. It will make the bullet shoot out faster.

    I would happily purchase this at that price or just a little lower. ;-)

    That's probably an ITEM NUMBER, not a price. (They typically don't put price on AUCTION items.)

    I'd gladly pay that sort of price, too.

    Red dot sight mount? Ha! Clearly those are low pressure slide return ports. ;)

    Attachment points for attaching the spade grip trigger and tripod mount.

    Those are the holes for a bridge mount to hold a red dot over the slide. An older version of this:

    The CZ 75's clones used to ruled Open Class IPSC/USPSA back when they were loading 9mm Major and before the advent of the polymer 1911 frames from SVI/STI

    Could be welded up and fixed, but buying price would have to way down there.

    Say what? JB Weld holds at least as good a Duct Tape!

    ;)
