Is a 40P a collectable?
« on: November 19, 2020, 09:34:33 PM »
Is a 40P that is like new with all the boxes and paperwork worth any more than one that been used? Never been a fan of 40sw even though I shot a lot of it in my Glocks. Picked this up years ago and it has been a safe queen. I'm not a collector so wear isn't an issue. Now with the ammo shortage it might be time to start shooting up my 40sw stash. Should I use the CZ or sell it to offset the purchase of a Smith & Wesson Performance Center M&P M2.0 Ported Barrel & Slide C.O.R.E. Semi-Auto Pistol. Really like that I can install a rds.

I would say the 40B / 40P are collectible to CZ fans. Not so certain about general collectability in the market. Was your slide milled to un-horse it from the Colt Z40 logo?

I think so. When this topic came up years ago I took a look and thought, Neat!

Think I’m just going to drop in a 13# hammer spring a call it good. When I got to counting it all up the stash wasn’t as big as I recalled. Plus the last thing I need is another gun in a caliber I don’t want to reload for.

that looks like a milled slide

seems to be the most common way for the 40P pistols I've seen to be configured, but I haven't actually seen a milled 40B.

I've sees a milled 40B - I own one  :)

The 40B is an excellent shooter out of the box, However... it is an amazing shooter once once you install the Cajun Pro kit!

I expect the 40P with the Cajun Pro kit will also be a fantastic shooter.

BTW, the 13lbs hammer spring will noticeable improve the double action trigger pull weight - it won't do much for the single action though. Still, not a bad idea to do.
