    I have a potential trade, my Glock 23 for a CZ 75 compact. It was supposedly made in 1993 and doesn't say "B" on the side (just says "CZ 75 Compact". Did the compact come along after the B so that it would have the upgrades (internal firing-pin block in particular)? Its a beautiful piece but I don't want the troubles I've heard associated with the older CZs.

    you should be good, the CZ75 Compact isn't marked B even on the newer models

    Not sure about the internals of that gun, UncleDodoo, but the CZ75s I have owned work flawlessly.

    Its a beauty for sure. I guess I'll do it. Would like to know if anyone knows if this one from 93 should have the internal block, or can find a link to what one would look like internally (the guy who has it got it on a trade and doesn't know anything about it, got it from an old guy who had it for years)

    The Compacts are good to go. I don't think they made compact model before the safety change so they didn't have to differentiate. but I could be wrong. I don't think the safety would keep me from one though, in fact I'd like a "pre B" myself. I don't have Pre so I can't take a comparison pic, sorry.

    I absolutely love mine after 4 years. Those grips and the blue finish are downright gorgeous. I love my Chrome model, which they dropped this year, but that one is nice.

    Doesn't the finger grove trigger guard give it away as a 'B' as opposed to the rounded one on the 'pre B'?

    427, I don't know CZ's but my research in the last few hours would indicate the same thing. Once again, I love the knowledge you find on here, thanks guys! I'll post better pics once I have it. Anybody know where to get mags for it? I heard CZ sells them but I don't see any mags on their main website.

    I'd make that trade in a heartbeat. CZ's are some fine pistols and that one appears to be in wonderful condition.

    All day long and twice on Sunday. I have one. The most accurate and sweetest compact weapon I own. Every polymer gun I own would leave my house before my compact CZ would. If you're not sure about the deal put me in touch with the seller. I'll take it.

    Its home now, safe and sound. Must have come from Commifornia since it has a 10-round mag. Anybody know where I can get mags right now?

    CZ Custom Shop will have everything you'll need (when this crisis is over)and they ship super-fast. Angus and the guys there don't play.

    So does it have the firing pin block or not?

    You can see the blocker plunger on the underside of the slide, if you remove or retract the slide.

    elsolo, it has a small semi-circle black plunger so I guess its good. That's good to know, thanks for the info. This is a 93, so I guess that's the last year they said Czechoslovakia on them? This gun is in excellent+ condition. Can't wait to get it to the range. My brother just called and said walmart had a lot of 9mm in stock today.

    Just a note: CZ'S like 124gr ammo better then 115gr ammo & if yours as a plastic guild rod(may not its older) get a steel one from CZ just call them up. I did that with all my CZ'S.

    thanks for the tip. It has a stainless guide rod. Will that help with 115gr? I really detest finicky guns, hope this one can shoot whatever I find to feed it.
