Default Mystery 9mm pistol

I recently purchased a 9mm from a private party and it is a complete mystery what kind of gun it is and its worth. The only markings on the pistol is it says CAL 9 on the barrel, it has a serial number, and it says cal 9 para on the actual barrel. It must be rare because i have not found anything even close. Hopefully one of you can help me figure out the manufacturer and then eventually find out if i got ripped off. the only thing wrong with the pistol is the guy I got it from put a custom mount for a scope on it so there are some bore holes in the barrel. The markings say CAL 9 and the serial number is AE06314.I have attached some pictures for help. It looks a lot like a CZ and it says Model 9 Made in Italy also. Ive guessed its a Tanfoglio but what model? Whats the worth?

It appears to be a Tanfoglio CZ-75 clone. It was at one time set up for IPSC Open class competition. The threaded holes in the left side of the frame are where a scope/red dot mount once was affixed. The trigger appears to have been converted from D/A to Single Action only.

actually you are half right. I took it in and its pieced together from 2 guns for comps. The top half is para ordinance and the bottom half is tanfoglio. Im guessing for the firing pin and the spring.

Are you sure it's a mix between Para & Tanfoglio? Why someone would spend the money to machine a Para slide to ride inside a Tanfoglio frame is totally beyond me...

As far as what a coyote ugly gun is worth, take it out & see how it shoots- you might like it, you shouldn't have much competition from the "like it club"

I agree with Robo. It looks liek one of those Tanfoglio's that's been Frankensteined.
