Here's a couple pics

No date



I assume this is an import mark? I just noticed the 10 there, is that the manufacture date or import date?

I believe so, or as DanMore says the 'proof date' when the pistol was test fired.
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.

Back in the good old days, CZ never have been importet to the US by any company. They had been imported or better taken to the US by US Soldiers, that had been stationed here in germany and that bought the CZ`s at Frankonia, that is the main importer for CZ firearms in germany.

I can`t tell, when CZ started to sell directly in the US, but it can`t be that long ago, compared to how long CZ75`s are on the market.

Since specially the Pre "B"`s  had been purchased in a germany shop, they mostly all have the german proof marks on them. Later models, that hadn`t been sold via germany, would most likely not have these proof marks on them.

Below is from their website:

A: Each CZ firearm has the year of manufacture stamped on the firearm itself. For many years, pistol marks were located in a small oval behind the extractor/ejection port. Recent production has moved that to just in front of the serial number on the slide. It will be a 2 digit code indicating the year it was manufactured.

Rifles generally have the manufacture date stamp on the right side of the action, slightly behind where the barrel threads into the receiver. The rifle mark has a proof stamp along with the 2 digit code.

In the second picture.  Isn't that a "10" just in front of the serial number on the right side of the pistol on the slide?
I just keep wasting time and money on other brands trying to find/make one shoot like my P07 and P09.  What is wrong with me?

I had the same question on a retro hammer model and corresponded with the Czub marketing rep in the Czec Republic. His response was "the year of production is always equal to the year of a C.I.P. proof test. It is typically present on the barrel/chamber/bolt in a form of a crest and C.I.P. stamp with two digits which are equal to the year of production." I hope that helps.
