I have also been thinking about a cz 75. I want the one with the SA trigger but I have read several posts that the SA trigger is really bad out of the box. True?

I think people are just realizing how good they are. Only recently have they had a good distribution and marketing center in the USA. For that matter, they have only been imported into the USA for a short time period.

I have had a number of cZs over the years, but have yet to shoot an SP01. If the SP01 is as good as the other models, and no reason to suppose they are not, it should be a fine pistol. Check out the forums on www.czforum.com. There are a number of informative posts on the SP01 and both Angus Hobdell and Matt Mink are frequent contributors.

gentlemen,
had my CZ75 Compact since jan. love the fit, feel, and finish. An all steel gun that is more accurate than I am. bright finish, and great quality of workmanship.
yes the trigger needed about 1000 rounds to smooth out but it was a fun 1000 rounds

I don't think that they are popular "all of a sudden", it's always been among people who knew about them. It doesn't become one of the most popular handguns among police/military all over the world "all of a sudden".

It's just unfortunate that they cost a bit more than a few years back, but I have no problem sharing a good thing or two ;) Even with slight increase in price, it's still one of the BEST VALUES in 9mm pistol, if not THE BEST still. If you don't have one, definitely get one, quick.

CZ75s are really, really good shooters, values, extremely accurate, and fairly priced handguns. They have been around and appreciate by many, but I believe are becoming more and more popular. I will never ever willingly part with any of my CZs.

Actually they have been sought since Jeff Cooper gave them his qualified endorsement in the late 70s....Qualified because it was not a .45.;)

They are excellent pistols. I have several older ones I have had for ages. I have been thinking of getting a SP01 to check out the newest generation of this classic.

IPSC World Champion, Eric Graufel, uses a CZ-75 clone: Tangfoglio (EEA imports them here) Witness Match. As, if I am not mistaken, do most competitors in Europe.

I am very pleased with my PCR Compact. (http://www.cz-usa.com/product_detail.php?id=37) :)

Even better is that they are priced very reasonably - with many models well under half a grand - but I would not expect this to continue for long. :(

I am seriously in the market for a new (or at least new to me) carry pistol, and I just thought about CZ. I'm looking on their website at the CZ 75 P01. I can't find them on gunbroker, gunsamerica, or the local shop's website. Are these really that hard to find?

The CZ82 works nicely for me as a carry weapon. :D

I just searched Gunbroker for "P01" and it came up with 4 and searching for "P-01" found a couple more (when you go to Gunbroker, select "Semi Auto Pistol" from the list of categories on the left before you search ... that way you get just semi auto pistols and not accessories and other stuff). Searching "CZ Compact" brings up several similar model CZs (lots of PCRs and CZ75 Compacts).

I bought my FIRST CZ 75 by mistake. I was looking for a .40 W/ the S&W model 410 as first choice & a CZ75B as second choice.

I couldn't find the S&W (this was at a Gun show) so I "settled" for the "Z". 5 minutes after I started the paperwork I found the Smith, ohh was I PISSED! But I figured I was comitted so I bought the CZ.

Long story short I STAYED pissed until I got it to the range my first shot relegated that S&W to a distant memory & by the time I finished the first box of ammunition my beloved RIA .45 became a safe queen.

CZ is kinda like Panama Jack, If you gotta ask you just don't know

I have an Sp-01 Tactical. I love it. If I absolutely had to go to a gunfight with only a pistol, it would unhesitatingly be my first choice out of dozens I have owned or shot. Never had a jam, even when "limping it" with weak ammo, holding it in odd positions etc. Mine has night sites on it. Dunno if I will ever use the rail, but nice that its there. I prefer its decocker to a safety.

Accuracy is very good. Not quite excellent on mine, meaning not quite a target pistol. Mine does string to the left when it really heats up, otoh I've never been able to heat up my 1911 like I do with it. Very little muzzle rise during rapid fire strings. Avoid the optional bayonet for ccw:)

Oh, the epoxy finish is great and very corrosion resistant.

For those of you who have not purchased a CZ75/85 or any other model in the family, be warned: CZs multiply. I started out with one (gotta start somewhere, right), and just this last weekend I picked up another that was whispering to me. Gotta sit down and inventory the whole blessed mess (again).

I've had my pre-B CZ75 for 22 years now. Purchased when I was an E-4 from the Nurmberg Rod and Gun. I've been very happy with it. It just goes bang. The only modification is a set of hogue wrap around grips. I just took up IDPA and shoot ESP and SSP with it. I could use a few extra 15 round mags though, they're hard to find.

I've owned a CZ-85 Combat for about four years, and I swear by it. Only complaints I have is that the adjustable sight could be better (easy fix, drop in replacements or just go with a fixed sight initially), and at $45 a piece, the sixteen round mags I bought seemed relatively expensive. On paper, it'll keep pace with, if not outperform my Kimber 1911.
