What 9mms or 40cals do you own presently or have you owned in the past that are more accurate than your Cz75s? I have only one BHP presently that is more accurate. In the past I have had a couple of Sigs and a BHP 40cal that could make that claim. How about you?

The CZ75B .40sw is it for me.
The other 4 pistols I own are of polymer frames,so the 2 categories don't even compare.
Even though I like the accuracy of my Walther P99 over the 3 other polymer Glocks I own.In that order of accuracy.

Aside from my customized Sistema (45ACP) and my 22LRs, my 9mm CZ-75B is my most accurate pistol so far. However, ergonomics and low recoil of the 9mm may have a lot to do with that.

Shoot well

My CZ75BD is rivalled in accuracy only by my CZ97B. Great pistols!

I don't currently OWN a CZ-75 (we have a mandatory 1-year waiting period even for obtaining a gun permit)...

But when I joined our local shooting club the first club-owned gun I borrowed for training happened to be the CZ-75.

I took it up and thought, "gee, this thing fits me well; pity it's so old, dirty and abused..."

When I went to the range I was surprised to learn that this old, dirty, abused POS made me shoot considerably tighter groups than with my SIG P 225 duty weapon.

It certainly is on my list for next year...

However, I still have to check out those 1911's my club has stored somewhere.

Love my CZ 75B - especially with custom grip panels by Hakan (


April 4, 2003, 11:42 AM
I have a P01 does that count? Technically it is a 75B.

I have a CZ-75B Mil in which I replaced the "ergonomic" plastic grips with CZ rugger grip panels which are great. Also have a CZ-75 PCR, .22 Kadet Kit and a 97B. The Kadet Kit gets used on both the 75B and PCR. THe 97B is just an incredible .45. If I had to pick one line of guns to stay with it would be CZ.

I've got a 75B in .40, and a Glock 22; accuracy-wise, I'd say they're equal. The only thing that bothers me about my CZ is trying to find a decent holster and mag pouches to go with it, so I can use it more often.

April 4, 2003, 12:53 PM
No longer with a 75B. Another vote for the excellent P-01!

April 4, 2003, 01:12 PM
Cz-75B is my best shooting gun by far.

April 4, 2003, 01:15 PM
Just out of curiosity, what does a set of Hakan grips cost?

CZ 75 BD

In natural birch, $60.00 delivered was quoted last year.

April 4, 2003, 04:50 PM
The only other 9mm that I shoot more accurately than my CZ75B is a SIG P226.

April 4, 2003, 05:51 PM
My other 9's are Glocks, and they don't hold a candle to the CZz's accuracy-wise. Moreover, the CZ's are a lot easier for me to shoot accurately. My SIGs in 357 SIG and Kimber target .45 are as abt as good in the CZ's in their respective calibers.

April 4, 2003, 06:09 PM
another P01 owner here. Been a great gun so far but I need to shoot it more.

April 4, 2003, 07:01 PM
My CZ40. I had to do it. Thinking of a CZ75 for next purchase.

April 4, 2003, 07:10 PM
I've had a Mil model for a few years. Good gun, no problems at all.

I like it better than my BHP some days and some days I don't. Depends.

CZ IPSC Standard in 40S&W. I've owned three others, a standard full size 40, full size 9mm and a 9mm compact. All were great guns and all were sold to friends that were impressed enough to buy them. The IPSC I sold via the internet. Very nice gun, perfectly nice as a matter of fact. Just I liked the EAA enough to sell the CZ. The IPSC had the best out of the box trigger I've ever tried and I've played with Wilsons, Baers, RRAs. $3,000 race guns don't count though. :p

I also like the single action EAAs and have a Silver Team that I love very much. I really need to get a CZ75B SA in 9mm soon. Everyone around here has them in 40 and I just hate to order stuff. I especially liked that SA/PCR combo PCRCCW built. :p

April 4, 2003, 09:42 PM
Never owned them but I've shot some others like Para Ord. Jericho,Tanfoglio,Beretta and Glock...they all made me appreciate my own CZ75B much more.Tanfoglio is the one came closest to it.

My beloved CZ75B in ToTone:)

I have a 75BD and a 75 Compact PCR. Both are very accurate and 100% reliable. The PCR in particular is an outstanding carry gun.

April 4, 2003, 10:03 PM
I just got my CZ75BD about a month ago, and WOW! I thought my Glock 30 was accurate!

April 4, 2003, 11:38 PM
I picked up mine last Saturday but won't be able to shoot it until this Sunday.
I did clean and lube it up good and have been doing a lot of Dry Firing it using the CZ supplied Snap Caps!

The test target that came with my 9mm 75B has a 2.5 inch diameter group from the I'm not complaining (especially since I can't do anything close to that).

On the other hand, the only .40 I have is my Steyr M, and ppl often remark about how the bullets go exactly where they were pointed. No scientific ransom rest test to back that up, however.

April 5, 2003, 09:46 AM
Keep in mind..the test targets you get are shot off hand by guys who do NOTHING but shoot guns all day long. They are gonna have bad/average/great groups with the guns.....
What an absolutely rotten job.....:rolleyes: :evil:
My CZ83 .380 (first CZ :( sniff ) shot a 1.900" 5 shot group from a Fixed rest the second week I had it.....Its target was around 2.5"
I guess its not the rule....Shoot well

April 6, 2003, 04:09 AM
OK I jumped on the cz bandwagon today, picked up a nickel 75B at the gunshow, sure hope it shoots like you all say they do. If it does, hakan grips are in my future!......tom

April 7, 2003, 06:12 PM
I currently have 3 CZ 75Bs in the stable, a standard 9mm, a .40 and the P01. I've never met a CZ it didn't like.


April 11, 2003, 02:19 AM
CZ75BD- Thanks. I really really dig the Hakan grips and would like to eventually pick up a pair.

Hakan-That two-tone CZ with those grips is absolutely stunning!

April 11, 2003, 04:14 AM
Dug my '96 Military out of the safe recently. Need new grips. If I could reach the thumb safety reliably, it'd be an awesome 9mm carry gun.

But I can't. :(

It's still cool, though. :cool:

April 11, 2003, 12:08 PM
Just bought my first handgun last week it's a CZ 75 D PCR and I love it. Best $$ I have spent in a long time. Just shot 130 rounds of UMC and Blazer through it yesterday and no problems at all.:)

April 11, 2003, 03:10 PM
9MM CZ75B, my first love (in handguns). Bought it because I couldn't afford a BHP at the time. 1500 rnds and no FTF at all. Currently resides at the ready in Momma's bug out bag. Not only would I trust it with my life, I trust it to protect my kids.

More accurate than BHP (not mine), less accurate than Glock 17. VERY solid, durable, with good ergonomics and decent trigger. Mediocre sights. Gave it and Kadet conversion to my best friend, miss the gun at times...but it is doing a lot of good where it is now.

April 11, 2003, 11:29 PM
Considering that its my only auto that I own, my 96 CZ-75B has been the most accurate of what I have shot (while the Glock 23 was rivaling it in the accuracy department). My grips from Hakan are currently in the works, and I get giddy everyday it gets closer to them to arrive :D .

April 13, 2003, 11:31 AM
The only other 9 I have is a Beretta 92. The CZ is just as accurate-of course that may be that it fits me better.

Mine, with the obligatory Hakan's:

April 13, 2003, 01:25 PM
The Hakan's may look better, but depending on how you feel about rubber grips, the Hogue wraparounds are more comfortable.

April 22, 2003, 12:21 PM
I don't have a 75B, but I recently got hold of a very accurate 85 Combat.

The only thing in my gun safe more accurate than the CZ is my Feinwerkbau P34 air pistol in .177 caliber :)

I agree with aircarver on the Hogue grips... they work well for me and enable me to get a better grip on the gun compared with the factory grips.

April 22, 2003, 10:19 PM
I'm really envious of your reports, fellows...'cause I must have gotten a lemon! My CZ-75B in .40 is the least accurate of my many pistols. At 25-yd the group is about 6" vertical by 2"+ horizontal about 3" left of the bull...just like the factory target that came with the gun! I now have about 1,500 rounds through it, with no improvement. Suggest you check the factory target before you buy (got mine over the INET).

My most accurate: High Standard Military Tournament in .22, K-38, Russian Makarov in 9-mm Mak, Norinco M1911A1, Ruger Blackhawk in .45 Colt...all extremely tight groups.

Less accurate: Ruger Mk II in .22, a pair of Colt Officers Model Target .38s, Bulgarian Makarov in 9-mm Mak, Taurus 9-mm, EAA .45 from their target shop.

I tell you, that Hakan fellow makes some insanely beautiful grips. His "Flame Amboine" is the most beautiful wood I've ever seen.

Can you imagine that on a deep blued Colt SAA. Whoa!:what:
