Default Anyone with CZ-75 Experience?

I had some great range time this past Saturday, really fell in love with a friends new Beretta 92FS. Trigger was the most beautiful thing. Was incredibly accurate... just punched holes exactly where the sites were.

But I've been really eying he CZ-75's Anyone with CZ experience? I picked one up and it was just magnetic.... I just couldn't put the thing down Was wondering more about maintenance, issues that can arise, hidden costs, gun smith work needed, etc.



yeah yeah I know "GET WHAT WORKS FOR YOU, DUMBASS".

I shot a buddy's years ago, and it was extremely accurate. My friend and I could hit golf balls 3 out of 5 shots @25 yards on average, and the misses were very close. Excellent machining, very durable (my pal is a handgun nut, and he has put a lot of ammo through his with no problems), and reliable. If you have a smaller hand, the reach to the double action trigger might be a tad far, but otherwise only a Browning Hi Power (P-35) points as naturally as the CZ. It takes a bit more searching to find accessory options for CZ (grips, night sights, etc.), and some things just aren't available, like extended slide and magazine releases, unlike the for 1911s, but holsters are available in quite a few styles, and CZ USA in Kansas does a good job with customer service. Parts are not going to show up as fast as they can for other brands, and if it comes from the Czech Republic, it will damn well show up when it damn well shows up, so if you want to snap your fingers and get some things for your pistol within days, it isn't always going to happen with a CZ.
Excellent pistol overall.

DO NOT SETTLE for a Tangfoglio or an EAA Witness. They are CZ derivative designs/clones, but THEY ARE NOT AS DURABLE OR ACCURATE. They are cheap copies and you will regret spending your money on them. Period. I don't care what anyone tells you otherwise. They're cheap shit.

I shot a rental piece some years ago at public range. It was a pretty decent pistol, but it was a little beat up. Not sure what they go for or if you can even get them new anymore.

What's your price range?

The trigger pull doesn't worry me too much as I'd be firing from single action. Even if I was to carry (which I don't think I would ever), I'd probably treat it like a 1911, cocked and the safety on. It would be more for range fun and possible home defense- but that's what my Ruger Mini-14 is for

I have shot my cousin's CZ 75D Compact. Feels, looks and shoots like a pure - quality handgun. After shooting it I understood why so many modern handguns are based on it.

go with the Sp-01 serie with the full lenght frame, apparantly it makes it more accurate. but the good old cz-75 classic do look better.

Ha, came back and read this thread. I just picked up a new CZ SP-01 Tactical and an additional magazine....... Pure gun sex in the hand. yessir. Feels like it was machined out of a single piece of steel. Heavy as heck, but I actually like that.
