Thanks to all you guys that gave me info. on the CZ`S You guys were correct when you said that the CZ`s are sraight shooters. This gun is a beautiful addition to my small collection. Any of you want to show off your handgun pics, post`em here. I am absolutely satisfied with this CZ. It came with the radioactive night sights, two mags, a lock and case.

Well here are a few pics of the last three guns that I`ve bought including my CZ 75 B. Post your pics here if you`d like.

Excellent choice! One of the best pistols ever made. A reliable, accurate, and dependable platform. In my opinion, the CZ75 takes everything great from the 1911 and Browning HP , and makes it even better. It is consistently the pistol that I am most accurate with. Its the best ergonomically, for me at least.
I ALSO NOTICED YOU GOT THE .40SW chambering!!, excellent!!!!!!!!!!!

This merits an additional reply to the one above. Alot of my students love this pistol and only think its available in 9mm. I have to clarify to them that its also available in .40SW, its just that many dealers don't stock the .40SW, at least here, but it can be special ordered without any problems.

IMO one of the best if not the best pistol to come from behind the iron curtain.

The CZ-75 is a very popular pistol worldwide in one form or another many copies have been and are being made.

A sleeper for years in the USA but as word gets out these are only going to be more popular they are among the best semi auto pistols

Yeah, after reading a lot of material and reading the ballistic chart on the .40 S@W I sold both of my 9mm`s and started my hunt for the best .40 cal. handguns. I came up with the CZ 75 B and the Glock 22. I first bought the Ruger P 94 cause it was a great bargain. The Glock is also a great straight shooter. I placed 2nd with it a few days ago in a small local match. One bullet cost me first place in the final round at a 50 yard target. I ain`t over it yet. Great pic of the 75 BD.

My corner shooting was OK and here`s another pic of my 25 yarder. Time was everything in this match.

He said you need to fill your CZ up with Double Tap Ammo.

High velocity ammo that is popular on Glock Talk and other forums
by people who know their guns.

I use DT Gold Dot ammo in my CZs except the RAMI.

Wow, just checked out the double tap ammo site. Wayyyy to expensive for me. I`ve had great use out of the PMC 165 grain FMJ`s for targets and I personally prefer the Federal Hyro shocks for my protection loads. The match pics that I`ve posted are all shot with PMC. I think that they`re great. They are only about $240.00 per thousand. Can`t beat that, but thanks for the advise anyway.

Double Tap for defense carry, cheap FMJ or generic JHPs for practice.

You can find them at the CZ ZONE

How are the ergos on the CZ? They dont look to comfortable to me. None of my local stores have any CZ so I am curious. Is it snappy? I am looking for another 9mm myself.

October 26, 2007, 04:13 AM
ergonomically the CZ is very comfortable to shoot. definitely not a snappy gun. only complaint I have on them is the trigger, which I hear smooths out after 1000 rounds. i've got 500 rds so far, so I'm half way there... :)

My trigger is as smooth as silk. I`m not just saying that because it`s my newbie, I was told the same thing that you`ve stated about the triggers but it`s not true. As for the ergs., it feels as natural as any, it`s like it`s a part of my body that I didn`t know I had, really, very,very comfortable. Shooting? Dead on the money. Over and over and over. Snappy? Man think about it, it`s metal, the recoil is actually less with the CZ than with the Springfield or Smith and Wesson auto`s that I`ve shot. Smooth gun, no complaints, none.

Oh yeah, post pics if you`d like.

The grip is not bad for a double stack, I'd say more comfortable than my G19. The trigger reach in DA is my only gripe, its way long. My CZ is a range gun, and never starts from DA, problem solved.:) I did work on the hammer, to remove the camming, and now the pull is way better in SA:)

Took about a week and a half to get them and his prices are amazingly low for the quality. Check out the high resolution gallery at his site: http://www.marschalgrips.com . I doubt you'll find a better set of custom grips for many of the models of pistols that we frequent on this board, especially for the price.

What did you do to the hammer to help with the pull?

Lots of info on that at the CZ Forum. If you take the hammer out of the gun, you would see the surface the sear rides up, durring trigger pull, actually has a reverse angle over 90 degrees, cocking the hammer further as you pull. If you stone the hammer, to eliminate the reverse angle, and put it closer to a 90, the camming goes away. Also removing the Firing pin block system will give you a better reset.

Oh, don`t worry, I`ll be the first to tell ya that I ain`t no gunsmith. I`ve never had to be because my friend at Extreme Outfitters is a professional gunsmith. He`s taught me quite a bit in the last few years about such things as cold and hot blueing and some other small project work but when it comes to repair or modifying the trigger mechanism, I`ll be letting him have it. I`m unfamiliar with the CZ`s anyway. I`ve done a few modifications on some other guns but always with his guidance. No offense but just because I don`t doesn`t mean that I can`t.

Thanks for the info. Those are some beautiful pieces that you`ve posted. Thanks again

In fact CZ installs REAL night sights only on CZ SP-01 (decocker model and on manual safety model since spring of 2006). Sights on your picture look like stock CZ sights with light rechargeable paint. :)

Afraid not sir. These sights are in fact not light charged sights. If they were I`d remove them immediatly. I think that I know what I`ve bought. Also, the CZ 97 B has the same sights as mine and they are not light chargable. I don`t know if yours has these sights, if you do ,in fact own one, but mine does have the Tritium night sites.
Tritium night sights are available on most of CZ`s handguns. If you do a little research, as I`ve done for the past 6 hours, you would find that the info. that I`m giving you is correct.

Fact; I suspect that "possibly", as not to offend your highly, younger appearing, sensitive, senses, that like many Px4's that come from the Beretta factory with the Super Nova glow sights, the dealers are swapping out those rather cheap sights, for real Night Sights, such as Trijicons, for example, as to make the gun, with the 100 - 120 dollars value of such sights, more appealing, as a "complete package" to the buyer/s, which may, or may not, have been the case with your new gun. It's no big deal, fact or not, one way or another.

AS FAR AS YOUR CLAIMS, I'm sorry, large caps can indicate yelling, and that is not my intent. But your statement of "curiosity making you ignorant" is unfounded, as no such implication was made by me, except in your reply/s to those that have legit questions or suggestions, seems more on the brink of arrogance.

As you so rightfully say, "there's always room for improvement"..

I hope this is the case up the High Road, ahead.

It may be true that the world (of guns, and such) is your Oyster but, please, give us mere mortals a, nicer, break, from time to time, otherwise, I fear you may burn the bridge between the now and later.

Sorry sir if you were offended by those mild yet truthful statements. I understand that gun dealers do sometimes "swap out" cheaper accessories for more appealing accessories but in this case they did not. CZ sometimes offers additional accessories on some of their models, it`s that simple. I made those statements in lieu of another member, not you, insisting that I did not know what I had purchased. I think that my statements were well put and to the point. Now you are making adverse comments and using words such as young, us mere mortals,etc.etc. I really got a laugh out of those comments personally but it does,however, seem that the shoes in which you`re implying that I`m wearing may ,in fact, fit you.

Oh,and by the way, I`m 37 and please let`s not turn this thread into a pissing match. I appreciate your initial input. Now let`s move on.

I wasn't so much as offended, but rather disappointed in your reply/s.. And yes, at 37, you are young, and your shoes show it, and IMHO need to walk up the road of life, for some years to come, in order for your other statement to have merit.

No pissing match as, if there was any going on, it came from far up stream, but rather, just some hope of a small resolution on your part as, your "fact" that "the shoes" may fit me are laughable from where I sit, far up the road of life, my friend, than you, yet still with a young heart, but with a far more open mind, and far less thick skin, than at 37yrs of young-age.

I wish you good luck in life's journey of doors and roads..

----------

Thanks JDG, and what you experienced, feeling and cycling the slide of the Px4, was "exactly" what I felt, and did, with a CZ 75B and for the same reasons, didn't like it. And, instead, loved the ease of the slide action, the DA pull, the semi-DA pull, and the SA pull of the Px4's far smoother, less travel, trigger, along with, being a much lighter gun with no sharp edges like the CZ, being far more finished both, exterior and interior wise, including the ease of field stripping vs the CZ, along with, even, the magazines finish IMHO.

The CZ was rough, heavy, including the DA pull, and heavier spring loads in all areas mentioned, and 5300 rounds later with my Px4, without any failures, just 100%, she just gets sweeter and smoother with every shot.

The only thing I changed was the sights to Trijicons, and converted it from an F model, safety-decocker in one, to a G-model, decocker-only, and it is my favorite, and "most trusted" gun, as she has earned it both in time, round count, and accuracy, and all around forgiveness.

I know CZ's are great guns, of that I have no doubts, as many of my range buddy's shoot them, and have let me shoot theirs, and yep, they're real accurate shooters IMO.

Now, not to hijack the OP's thread, I return it to him and his CZ.

Alot of shooters are put off by the military grade triggers on the 75Bs, and that

MY RAMI has smoth trigger and my 75B Stainless triger is both smooth and crisp after getting a work over by a talented Gunsmith at CZ-USA.

I've also found the triggers on P-01s to be far better than those of the

Are you sure it was 50 yards and not 50 feet? or you used gun wise?
Yes it was 50 yards at Pine Belt Rifle and Pistol Range with a few friends. All of the yardages are marked so there is no guess work. I was surprised at the accuracy of my Glock 22. MAN!! Everyone was acting as surprised as I was. But yeah it was 50 yards and the one bullet that hit outside the 9 ring cost me first place. SUX to lose on one bullet but I guess I`ll have to deal with it. Those targets were all shot with the same ammo and all sessions were timed by one of us with a stopwatch. I`ve never worried about the time while shooting bullseye sessions but these guys made it so that it was a factor. I had a blast, especially with the corner shooting. Only one session was shot while benched, the rest were out of hand.
Today I shot at 200 yards, yep 200 yards with my CZ 75 B. I was shooting at a 10 inch pan. hahahaha I missed! Actually, my first shot, I aimed high to see where I stood with drop and hit about 2 feet high, my second shot was very low but the last 8 shots were knocking dirt onto the target. It was just for fun as I was spotting for some guys sighting in their deer rifles and poked a little fun at them. I think that after I shot the bullseye out of the target at 25 yards with my CZ that they`ll be a few more fans of them. I shot 10 rounds at 15 yards and then 10 at 25 yards on the same target and literally blacked the bullseye out. I shot using a rest not out of hand. Getcha self one bud and you`ll see that the bullets hit where you aim.

Almost every person that has a CZ handgun says exactly the same thing, accurate. I mean, isn`t that or shouldn`t that be proof enough for any doubters? I bought mine after starting several threads with different questions about the CZ`s I`ve had "Glockers" and "Fogies"(1911ers) along with other die hard fans of other manufactured handguns speak highly of them so after all of the great advise, I got it. The only negative thing about the gun is to do with the magazine. It`s a 10 rounder but when I tried to load my 180 grain Remington JHP`s, the mags would only hold 9. Don`t ask me cause I don`t know. I tried everything but the mags, neither of them, will hold 10 of the 180 grain JHP`s. Gotta clue? Fill me in.

with 10 round mags. The springs may be VERY strong (which is good), and after letting 9 sit in there a while, you should be able to load 10. You can also get 12 rounders form CDNN or Arizonagunrunners.
