    Picked this up from another dealer at the Raleigh show this weekend. It is a CZ P-01 from 2002. I THINK that is the very first year they were imported into the US. No NSN number and low serial number. I've not seen a P01 with a prefix below K, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

    Also cool is this one does not have an extra import stamp, meaning it was for the US commercial market. There are also early P-01s that came in later after they were surplussed by folks such as the Israelis. Those are cool in their own right and maybe I can snag one of those down the road.

    We shall see if fortune smiles on me enough to got shooting this week.

    Soooo....never, huh?
    And I thought we were cool lol

    Seriously, though. Im pretty sure youre right on it being the first import year. The P01 was introduced in 2001 and Im 99% it was the next year they hit the American Market.

    No, I need only one or two Pre-Bs to be happy. You'll get the call after that. :D

    I admire that the design hasn't changed in the past 17 years.

    CZ75's are one of the best hand-filling pistols out there! - Hello BTW it has taken me a long time to find this forum!

    As I understand it, the first year of import by CZ USA was through Oakhurst, CA. They then moved to Kansas. I have a 75B with the Oakhurst stamp on it. Before that, they were imported through other companies.

    Yep. @Hazmt and I go way back. We used to shoot together A LOT, back when you could burn up 1000 rounds at the range and have spent less than $100 in so doing (spam cans of 7.62X54R were under $50 back then). He and I both had some weird work schedules that left us a lot of shooting days during the week. It was great!
