Finally, a pistol that Bernie Sanders would approve of.

Back on topic, that is a really cool pistol. Congrats on a nice find.

I got the same gun. Mine is S/N 86 out of 1000 on the first run. Yours is the second run but I don't know the total made.

Cool looking gun but good grief "Cold War Commemorative", really?

That's got to be the poorest excuse for a name ever derived by a marketing group!

CZ didn't choose to be behind the iron curtain, the Soviet Union forced it on them, sort of like Neville Chamberlain allowing Hitler to take over Czechoslovakia in the thirties. They were among the first to leave the Iron Curtain and the CZ 75 was first used by Czech soldiers in the late seventies. I have several CZ's, they are well made.

Nice . I LIKE.

How come I NEVER see stuff like that in the LGS? :mad:

I would probably grab that to add to my CZ collection.

I noticed your frame is the later 75B frame. The new Cold War model is the original style 75 frame.

Yeah, round trigger guard, spur hammer. Me like.

Similar to the short-run CZ75 Retro from a couple of years back. I'd like one of those.

:)
