Was that a special target model? It obviously has adjustables and that square triggerguard wasn't period unless made specifically for such a thing - also the finish doesn't match between slide and frame along with the slide stop, which looks custom. Needs more info. Perhaps something from Frankonia in Germany?

Are we absolutely convinced that the frame is not from a more recent CZ75? I can see the whole gun was customized (I darn sure like YOUR sights better then my old Milletts!)
1 line roll mark that stopped in 1983.

It was worked over my Frankonia in Germany.

Adjustable trigger, some fancy(gaudy) controls. Two tone bluing. They squared off the trigger guard.

OH! I almost tossed that out there. So it was a custom squared trigger guard, that makes sense, it looked slightly different then when CZ started it on the B models. The custom controls made me think that was a possibility, I love that slide stop!
Those Millett sights on mine were very popular for a time, but I do wish they were stock instead. Yours has that S&W revolver rear sight inset into the slide, looks nice.

You know, I really don't shoot mine enough, maybe fix that tomorrow...

I don’t shoot this one much at all’s

With all the customizing already done…. I’ve been thinking about milling it down to be a short rail.
