    I'm in the process of buying a CZ 75 BD Police, 9mm.
    How can I find out when it was manufactured from the serial number?
    On the right side of the slide it has printed:
    CZ-USA Kansas Cty, Ks. I understand that this is the US distributor, but where was it made and when??:feedback:

    With CZs, you cannot tell the date of manufacture from the serial number. The closest you can get is the 2 digit year code found in the oval by the ejection port.

    All of the CZs have been manufactured in the either the old Czechoslovakia / the current Czech Republic.
