    At $2999 from $3400...someone explain why this is worth anything near that. Looks like a LGBTQ gun or some oddity that was a mistake that someone is playing a joke on the world with. They even call it "the collectors Holy Grail"

    I'd slap a Lego sticker on the side of it and run the hell out of it.

    Its a special edition version of the cz checkmate. They only make about 10 each year and only half of those get imported to the states.

    The checkmate is basically an out of the box open major gun. If you have the skills you could take this thing all the way.

    Effectively you are getting a CZ checkmate with slightly different machining and a bunch of anodized parts to make it look different for about $700 more than an regular checkmate.

    Compared to other ready from the box open major guns its actually a pretty good deal.

    FABUUUULOUSSSSSSSSSS?

    Competitive out of the box open gun, cheap in that world, needs krylon touch. Would not pay premium over Checkmate.

    I assume it's because of the huge LBGTQWXYZ community and CZ ownership community overlap?

    I'm straight. I'm also lgbt friendly. I wish every human could be happy and healthy and live their best life, however they see fit.

    I'd be happy to rock this gun at any competition. But not at this price. I'm too cheap. Haha.

    When you respond, they will give you an excuse why they can't meet locally and ask you to send a money order, wire money, etc. I've played with them a bit. "I can't meet with you. I was just reassigned to XXX Air Force base in AZ." My reply: "What a coincidence! I am heading out there for business next week! I'll bring cash and meet you there."

    One deal was so good, I told them I'd buy a plane ticket and fly out there the next day with cash. Never heard back from that guy.

    I, too, would rather have the regular Chechmate.
