Title: Oddball CZ75 COMPACT sighting!
Post by: Unregistered(d) on December 12, 2002, 10:01:01 PM
I just picked up a CZ75 COMPACT as a gift for my girlfriend.  Instead of the regular steel-colored barrel on virtually all CZ's, this one has the blackened barrel as in the PCR.  It is also flush with the front end of the slide, instead of sticking out like they normally do.

I checked with Mike@CZ-USA and he thinks there was a special batch made by CZ and the serial numbers of these odd combinations all end in "T".

Enjoy.

I will post pictures eventually.

The barrel is also marked with a "T in a circle" mark.

Also, apprently NEW CZ Compacts (steel-frame, with safety) have the flush barrel, not the protruding barrel like it shows in the CZ catalog.   I just put a deposit on a Compact that has the normal steel barrel (silver colored), but it does not protrude from the end of the slide.

I had wondered what you meant about the barrel being flush because my compact's barrel is almost perfectly flush.

I love it when I read messages like this then find out that I have one of these "odballs"

It gets weirder...my first PCR has a flush barrel with a "rifle style target crown, black barrel and the crown is flush" my newest PCR's barrel is just like the plain compact...no real specific crown and its silver....just like the PO1's black version.
My old compact actually did protrude from the housing...like the pic.
Shoot well:smokin
