Steel Frame CZ Compact?
« on: July 27, 2019, 04:06:55 PM »
I found some information on the discontinued CZ gun list that implied there  was a decocker compact with an all steel frame. The only CZ 75 Compact with decocker is the PCR, which is an alloy frame.

Was there, is there, a CZ 75D Compact with an all steel frame?

I've seen PCR's with safeties made for Israeli contracts, so if the flip side is very much a possibility. Perhaps made in the late 90s before the PCR replaced it. Mind if you share the list?

They did make steel frame Compact D CZ75 pistols, they were just never a cataloged item for CZ-USA to import here.

Many of the ones for sale in the US market are Israeli surplus.

The list I referred to was on on the CZ site. I found mention of a Czechoslovakian made compact decocker in an article. I will try to locate that again and share. It may have also been related to the Israeli model with a safety and I just misread the article.

it has a real de-cocker and a very magnetic compact frame
built in 1999
even had the lanyard loop mainspring pin and grips that had a corner melted off to clear.

They exist, I own 5 of them. All of mine were built in '99. There's a retailer with a few posted on GB right now, but his prices are very high compared to what I paid.

I have one. Bought it surplus on Gunbroker. Other forum owners say it's in great shape for surplus. Gunsmith friend of mine says its trigger is extremely smooth from dry fire practice. No wear on the inside. One thing to keep in mind is that the 75 and 75D Steel Compacts have weird downward sloping beavertails. Kind of like a Beretta 92, but uncomfortable. I'm still trying to get to like mine. The web of my strong hand doesn't seem to like it much.
