I am looking at both of these CZs and wonder what your experiences may be with them. I was looking at the XD9 Sub Compact (I have two XD9 Service models) for my next purchase but I think it will be one of these for now.
If you have owned and/or shot one or both of these in 9mm let me know what your experiences have been. Any problems with feeding, extracting, etc.? They both feel real good in my hands but I do like the smaller size of the 2075. Thanks.

The P-01 has been reliable for me so far, absolutely no problems after 300 rounds. It is just one of those thing where I just feel like it will not fail me.
On the other hand, I somehow shoot a tiny bit more accurate with my XD-9sc (sans laser) and also have absolute confidence on its reliability. The RAMI "I heard" is fine in 9mm but might have had some feeding problems with the .40 of the older batch.

No experience with the RAMI, but I have a similar gun to the P-01, a PCR Compact. It has become one of my favorites. I've only had minor functioning problems (one failure to feed a JHP bullet early on, a couple of failures to eject with only one kind of ammo, in this case Blazer aluminum); the last 500 rounds have been perfect. It fits my hand better than any double-stack, double-action pistol I've tried, even better with some wooden grips from the CZ custom shop that I added. It has a short (because the stroke begins with the hammer already about one third cocked) and smooth DA trigger pull; the SA pull is somewhat "scrunchy-crunchy" but does have a fast reset. The decocker operation and lever location is very slick. It is almost exactly the same size as the SIG P228/229, even fitting in leather holsters made for those guns. Highly recommended.

I have some small experiance with the like...
The PO1 is just flat astounding. I like it more every time I shoot it. The RAMI is my wife's gun, (as well as the PCR, yes, she has more CZs than I do...for NOW), and she loves it. I have fired it several times. It is a good solid reliable subcompact, which means a TEENY bit too small for me, but with the 14 round extended mag, it is very easy to handle.
Biggest differance is the PO1 is a driect descendant of the CZ-75, while the RAMI is begat from the CZ-40B, AKA the rare Colt Z-40. it is a standard safety, no decocker, while the PO1/PCR are both decocker models.
Let your hands wrap around them both, and see which one feels better to you.
