With all the CZ 75 talk around here lately, I felt this was very fitting. Bonus time is next week and while I always try to invest a good portion of it, I do plan to pick up a few nice toys. Two of which will be high end 1911s, including a full house custom build from EGW. However, I am going to buck the 1911 trend for a couple others and one will be a CZ 75 Champion. Its been discontinued, and as luck would have it, I got the last one at CZ-USA. My dealer called them last week and was told that the only model they had left in inventory was a floor gun, that was discounted as a "scratch and dent" model. Obviously, that didn't sound good, so I thought my plans to get one were over, as I never see them on Gunbroker. However, when they went to find the gun, they called my dealer back and said it looks like new, with a couple light scratches on the compensator. Now I'm all over it and asked my dealer to bring it in for me. The best part is that I'm getting it OTD for $1200 instead of $1600. As for the pistol itself, it was CZ's top of the line handgun for quite a while, before being discontinued due to high cost and, likewise, lack of sales. As you can imagine, I'm really looking forward to this one, as I love high end SAO target pistols. Here's some info from the CZ site: http://cz-usa.com/products/view/cz-75-champion/ I don't really care for finger groove Hogue grips, so they may have to go. However, I like everything else about it. The only downside is the caliber. As many know, I'm a huge 9mm fan. Unfortunately, the 9mm version is long gone. The only other caliber they were chambered for is one that I'm indifferent to, the 40s&w. I only own four other 40s&w pistols, as it was never my favorite for whatever reason. I'm a 9mm and 45ACP guy, but maybe this pistol will change my feelings on the cartridge. What does everyone think? I wanted a high end CZ and the Tactical Sport is sort of a mid range gun. The Champion fits the bill nicely and I'm really looking forward to some range time. I should have it later next week and pics will certainly follow. Its probably a shot in the dark, due to rarity, but does anyone own one of these? Has anyone fired one of these? Has anyone seen one of these? :embarassed: Thanks!
