What is my CZ-75 Worth?
Why do Gun Owners Like CZ Pistols?
The CZ-75 is one of the most famous of the “wonder nines” developed in the 1970s. Known for their reliability and low bore axis, the CZ-75 has excelled in military, law enforcement, civilian use and competition roles. The militaries of thirty nations have adopted the use of the CZ-75. The CZ-75 is also known for being among the most copied of firearm designs as there are nearly thirty clones of the 75 that have been or are in production. Some of the more well known clones are the EAA Witness, the Tanfoglio TZ-75 and the IMI Jericho 941 to name a few.
The CZ-75 has a diverse production with many different variants that serve multiple purposes. From the modern basic version of the CZ-75B to the competition minded Czechmate the value of these variants vary greatly. Other variants include the “P” series that feature a polymer lower and the 97B which is essentially the 75B chambered in .45 ACP. Besides the stock OEM handguns, modifications to CZ-75s can also increase or decrease value. Popular modifications include trigger kits, barrels, and springs among others. Manufacturers such as Cajun Gun Works and Primary Machine make quality upgrade parts for the many variants of the CZ-75.
How to Determine the Value of my CZ Pistol?
A major factor on determining value for any firearm comes from the condition of the gun. If it is in mint condition with little finish wear from handling, the gun can retain a good portion of its retail value. If more usage is apparent and the gun has scuffs, dents or scratches on the slide or polymer lower, the value will lower with each imperfection. Same goes with the metal parts, the more scratches and faded bluing finish that becomes present on the gun from handling and usage can greatly diminish its value. The takeaway is that as the condition of the firearm worsens, the less it will be worth when re-sold.
Another factor that contributes to a re-sale value is what accessories comes with the gun. Depending on the amount of magazines, their capacity and if it comes with all original packaging/case and accessories, the re-sale value can increase from 10 – 20 percent depending on the specific model.
