Sell my CZs?

I've got 1911s, Glock 19s, a BHP, and a CZ75B and SP01.

I shoot the 1911s a little and the Glocks weekly. I'm new to Glocks but have made the switch to them as my go to pistols. The BHP and CZs rarely get shot.

I bought the CZ75B a few years ago to have a 9mm capable of C&L when I was still using 1911s.

The CZs feel great and shoot well but I hate the slide. I can not get a good grip on the slide to rack it which I see as a huge negative in a defensive pistol.

What say THR? Keep the CZs or sell and reinvest in a new toy?

Sell it. With the recent price hike by the CZ factory. There are plenty of people out there looking for CZs in 9mm.

Keep it and save up for something else. I've regretted selling a couple of my pistols and with the up coming "change" you'll want a high cap 9mm. Of couse, if your are selling it cheap...:D

If you don't like it, sell it. It's just a gun. Get another one you like.

Well, I am a CZ guy, so I say keep it. However, if you are interested in getting rid of that SP-01, give me a PM, because like I said I am a CZ guy

Keep them. You will get bored with your new fancy, and go back to them in time, trust me. I "rediscover" cool new guns all the time. They are already in my safe too. We get bored shooting the same old thing all the time, no matter how much we like them. :)

Sell it! I went through the same thing a few years ago and sold the 3 I owned. I have no regrets. They are a fun range gun, but I do not trust them for SD for several reasons including the issues with the slide as you mentioned. They operate and feel quite a bit different than your other guns and I like to keep things very similar.

Wow I find myself in a similar scenario (debating whether or not to trade-in/sell my Yugo SKS and P6). I think you have to go to your safe (or wherever you keep your CZs) and look at them. Then you need to realize what you think about them. Do they serve you some purpose whether it be for target shooting, home defense, ccw, or perhaps they seem to fill some role in your collection? Or are they tied up capital keeping you from having something you really want?

Also if you can't think of a better replacement firearm(s) for the CZs at this time, you could ponder the thought of what you could use the spare money on. Would you rather have your CZs, or would you rather fit the rest of you pistols with decent holsters, extra ammo, or upgraded sights?

Another thing to consider is the popularity of the CZ 75? I really don't think they're going to be discontinued any time soon. So if you happen to feel the regret of parting with your CZs, you could probably find replacements.

Do you have a 75 or 2075 RAMI BD, 9mm? I would take either or both off your hands. :p

If you don't use a firearm much and don't have any particular attachment to it, by all means sell it. Just give it some serious thought first.

BTW you may want to sell just one of the CZ's and get the Kadet kit. Mine is amazing.

So, what will happen when you work the shine off your Glock(s) and you want something different? You gonna replace the guns you get rid of? I say keep your CZ'z for a while & see if they work their way back into your rotation

Give up. Sell them. You have no soul.

When you look in the mirror do you still see a reflection?

Can't grip the slide on a SP-01? I have one and I think it's the best slide serrations in the industry.
Sell it to someone who will give it a good home.

Iíve never understood this slide issue Ė Iíve heard it before and donít doubt the OPís issue with it but the slide on my 75B and SP-01 are as easy to rack as my 1911.

Sell my CZs?

Only you can answer that question.

You're thinking of selling CZs because of a Glock? Well, to each his own. Good luck with that. IMHO, the CZ is a much superior weapon in every way to the Glock but YMMV. Happy Shooting!

Finally had a chance to handle an SP01...now on the VERY short list to aquire!
Seriously, if you don't like something, you don't think you're going to, and you want/need money, sell. We have a nice classified section at czforum.com.

It's long been my experience that it's a bad idea -- and sometimes it's a very bad idea -- to sell a gun of any stripe or for any reason. More often than not, you will regret the decision ... maybe not right away, but somewhere along the line.
