I know a guy who has what I think is a rare handgun.

It is marked Colt, it is in the Colt plastic "box" with the owner's manual, 1 extra magazine, etc.

It is double action only and .40 caliber.

On the bottom of the frame it is marked (don't remember the exact words, but something to the effect of) Manufactured in Czechoslakia for the Colt Patent Firearms Company.

I've fired this gun (I don't like double action semi autos) and looked it over pretty well.  

The reason I think it's rare is, first, I've never seen another one at gun stores or gun shows and second, when I ask dealers about such a gun they look at me funny and tell me there's no such thing.

Anybody here seen one or heard of them?

CZ40. Sold under Colt's banner for a very short time.

Yep - Z40



Collectors item of a sorts - only 800 made as Colt Z-40. A
collaborative effort between Colt and CZ, with a 1911 style frame but
CZ top end and internals. About 100 imported.

The last gun show I went a guy had one of those Colts on the table NIB for $1,200, a few tables over there was the same gun only marked CZ with box for $295.

Didn't CZ have a bunch of those CZ/1911s for sale for around $300-400 for a long time?

The Z40 was DAO, and has a little collectors value because it says Colt on it.

The CZ40B was SA/DA and retailed about 300 with 2 mags.  An awesome deal.

1200 is way too much.
