That ad was from 2017 and the Phantom was D/C in 2019.

Sadly, it's a severely under rated pistol that probably doesn't move as well as other models. CZ probably cranks out a few thousand then discontinues again until they begin to dry up after a few years then produces more.

Perhaps CZ suspends production for commercial sales periodically if it obtains or resumes production for the military? I recently picked up a couple of Phantoms from the recent run. I am a huge fan of the P-09 but I like the Phantom better.

Discontinued, but still available (for now anyway).  I ordered one yesterday for $420.

Dahlonega Armory had them for $408 at the beginning of the month. I bought one and it impressed me so much that I bought another if I wear the first one out. I noticed they have raised their prices in the past week. Very smooth transactions both times, btw.
