Our Assessment: The CZ 75 is a semi-automatic pistol made by Czech firearm manufacturer CZUB. First introduced in 1975, it is one of the original “wonder nines” and features a staggered-column magazine, all-steel construction, and a hammer forged barrel. It is widely distributed throughout the world and is the most common handgun in the Czech Republic. The Pre-B 75 was produced from 1980 to 1993 and introduced longer slide rails, cast frame, and half-cocked hammer. This is a beautiful consecutive pair of CZ Model 75 Pre-Bs that come in their original boxes. Please see our photos and good luck!
