Well since I just picked one of these up last month, I’m not going to rehash the history. However, I do want to take a minute to thank Checkyoursix for once again alerting me that it was for sale in Texas. This one has supposedly been shot very sparingly and has been in the same family since new in the early 1990’s. Unlike the 40S&W example I just bought. This one is 9mm, which is my caliber of choice. You can see my thoughts on the Sphinx 2000 and its history here from a few weeks back...neither have changed. https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/picked-up-another-awesome-sphinx-at2000s.1771636/ All I’ll say right now is that I think its one of the finest pistols ever created by man and most certainly the finest example of the CZ 75 design. This particular example has no box and isn't quite as perfect as the unfired model I got last month, but its in great condition and will make a very fine shooter along side my Competitor. For $1800, I feel I did good. I also like the fact that this one has the Solothurn stamp with the Swiss crosses on the slide. Some slides have it and some don't, with really no rhyme or reason to it. This is the first one I owned with the stamp and I think it looks cool. Please enjoy the pics and share your thoughts. Thanks! Of course, here is the obligatory family pic. I've got two of the classic two tone models, one in 9mm and one in 40S&W, a palladium model in 9mm, and a Competitor in 9mm. I guess I can afford to just leave the 40S&W unfired now, so I'll have two shooters and two queens. Quite the family now, all thanks to Checkyoursix!
