should i buy this cz75 compact?

Thinking of picking up a cz75 compact 9mm, steel frame with 2 mags 1 12rd, 1 13rd. He is asking 425 what do you think? Im not sure what these are worth. It is used and he isnt the original owner but it looks to be in good shape

Not an expert on their pricing, but CZ handguns are outstanding

I don't know if the price is particularly great, but it isn't bad, either.

The bigger thing is that the steel compact models are not easy to find, and if you want one, I'd snap it up.

Hard to make out the number in the oval behind the ejection port, but looks like it might be an 89, indicating 1989 manufacture.

Has a squared and serrated trigger guard, and ring hammer, both characteristic of B, not Pre-B.

Did they make a Pre-B compact?

Sounds too high to me. $350-$400 ounces better.

Like I said, I think the price is just ok. OTOH, I have seen quite a few people looking for the steel compacts, but I have not seen many people finding them.

Have you found any others, lately? If so, how much were they? If not, how long are you willing to wait to find one in your price range?

Nice looking gun, but I think the price is a bit high. $350-$375 would be more reasonable. See if you talk 'em down.
