A friend of mine is interested in a CZ-USA CZ75B like this one,

http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/82/products_id/37204

I checked the DOJ approved list and found that these two are on the list.
CZ 75B (Black) 01120 / Steel Pistol 4.72" .40 S&W 12/31/2008
CZ 75 B (Black) 01102 / Steel Pistol 4.72" 9mm 12/31/2008

I just want to be sure that I am reading this correctly and it would fall under the criteria below.

After reading the FAQ and came up with this,

Why is the ‘blue’ one on the Roster, and the ‘stainless’ one not?
Manufacturer’s choice. Every model sold by FFLs in California must be on the Roster and paid for, every year.

A manufacturer can save testing fees by certifying that one gun is different from another only in ‘minor’ attributes
Quote:
12131.5. (a) A firearm shall be deemed to satisfy the requirements of subdivision (a) of Section 12131 if another firearm made by the same manufacturer is already listed and the unlisted firearm differs from the listed firearm only in one or more of the following features:
(1) Finish, including, but not limited to, bluing, chrome-plating, oiling, or engraving.
(2) The material from which the grips are made.
(3) The shape or texture of the grips, so long as the difference in grip shape or texture does not in any way alter the dimensions, material, linkage, or functioning of the magazine well, the barrel, the chamber, or any of the components of the firing mechanism of the firearm.
(4) Any other purely cosmetic feature that does not in any way alter the dimensions, material, linkage, or functioning of the magazine well, the barrel, the chamber, or any of the components of the firing mechanism of the firearm.

Thank you for any help on this in advance.

It will depend on the FFL ordering it for you, but most won't accept that; since the CZs are specifically listed by manufacture part number, and this specific part number is NOT on the list, it could be construed as a technical illegality to order it and deliver to you. Stainless is not the same as bluing; it's actually a different material which could be argued had a different result on a drop safety test (metal fatigue, etc.) and you would probably lose in a court of law.

$0.02, very shaky legal ground if even possible.

damn, my girl friend has her heart set on CZ stainless for her first pistol... I might have to get a blued one and nickel plate it. Kalifornia gun law... sigh...

I believe the stainless and nickel mosels are a no go in CA. My dad has a nickel CZ75b .40 I am pleased with.

Unfortunately, they are a no go in this socialistic state. You can obtain one out of state and bring it in yourself. I wanted one as well.
