First of all, Welcome to CZ Forum! We're glad to have you here.
Second, what it's worth is subjective. I have seen them sell for between $175 and $325. It depends on who is around when you put it up. As much as I love CZ firearms, if I had $325, I would buy an 82 or an 83 in a caliber I would feel more comfortable defending myself with. But I'm not a collector per se. I have more than one CZ, but I don't make purchases based on rarity or total number of units produced.

Anyway, it's a nice little pistol, and I hope you enjoy it or, if you want to sell it, I hope you get what you want for it.

Thanks for the reply,  I really like this little pistol.  I plan to use it as CCW but I know that the 25 cal. is feeble.  thanks again for the info Don

25 is fine for SD if you can be precise with it. Years ago I carried a Raven with Hornady .25 JHP and I was confident in it.

I have one as well and recall I paid about $165 for it. Its a great little pistol I have from time to time carried it concealed myself. It's great to just to throw in a front pocket. There is an old saying "I would rather have a .25 in my pocket then a .45 at home". I also bought a great pair of rosewood grips on Gunbroker, I'll try to get some pics up this week of my CZ's. Mine is a great little shooter and has never had a hiccup after a couple hundred rounds. My only complaint is a lack of resources for spare mags.

I think the CZmodel 45 is also great.  Did you try TripleK I think they have mags.  Don

Thanks don.o, I also found them on Ammoclip.com. I like that ammoclip has an actual pic of what you are buying and they are a bit cheaper than TripleK.

         Thanks for both post guys. I added both of them to the Accessories/Mags topic, and I also added TripleK to the Holster Forum List because they make rifle/shotgun scabbards, and I haven't seen very many of those advertised.
         And as my luck would have it, the folks at ammoclip were out of ColtZ40 Mags and not likely to get any more.  :cry:

Hi TEXINMAINE,  I just looked at the ammo clip site and the had alot of bad remarks about ammoclip in general.  I hope your CZ45 mag works well for you but the reputation for TripleK is much better.  Anyway, good luck.  Thnx for your feedback.  don.o

I was warned this topic is "Old" but it has Info to find older mag-clips, also comments about SD -CCW which are still pertinent. I would suggest editing the pearls/facts/POC's etc. out of threads to be placed in a final post- then lock it. IMO: would mean less time to find the jewels.

Actually That is a VERY good suggestion. The tricky part is having the time to do that not only with this post but all the others as well. I'll see if it can happen anytime soon, but I am in the middle of trying to find a 30 + Acre piece of land to build a house, office and multiple bay (3) shooting range, get that built and then move in. And we are 6 months behind as it is.

Please keep the great Idea's and or Suggestions and keep asking them, Other wise I will forget and this is a good idea I do NOT want to forget. (I keep losing the todo lists and then not remembering what was on them)
