Both have still been flawless - no malfunction of any kind

Neither has had any modifications what so ever.

The CZ 's trigger have finally smoothed out. (Was very close to getting a trigger job done, but it has improved so significantly that I'm leaving it alone)

Originally I was more accurate with the Beretta, but the edge (very very slight) now goes to the CZ.

There is absolutely no noticeable wear on either gun, both have become smooth as silk, but the edge here goes to the Beretta. It feel like the gun is sliding on ball bearings. The more I shoot the Beretta the smoother it gets.

Not that the CZ hasn't gotten smoother as well, but the Beretta is like butter.

Both guns fit my hand extremely well, both are amazingly easy to shoot for an extended period of time, no recoil fatigue at all, Beretta get the edge here, it's just so darn smooth.

I still would not consider getting rid of either one, but if I was forced to chose between the two, the very slightest of edge would now go to the CZ.

We'll see what round three (3000rds) will bring, will post up another report then.

Both are top shelf pistols. You made great choices.

I have my eye on a Beretta 92, and this is great news.

Thanks

You know when I bought my Beretta 92FS INOX back in February my choices came down to the Cz 75B stainless or the INOX. I opted for the Beretta (tremendous gun) and put the CZ on hold. Since then I've gotten interested in .45 ACPs, bought a Stoeger Cougar 8045 which I really like, and got really interested in 1911s, however the more I read on 1911's, the more I thinking that I don't really want to go there. Your report on the CZ and Beretta has me interested in going back and adding the 75B stainless to my collection. Thanks for the report!

I have over 7,000 rounds thru my CZ 75 B stainless with no noticeable wear that I can see,
trigger has smoothed out very nicely, I love shooting this 9mm better each time I go out.

About how many rounds would you say it took for the CZ trigger to "smooth out"?

I have nowhere near 2000 rounds through any of mine... probably about 500 - 600 but the triggers are still like new, in other words, a bit gritty. Not objectionable by any stretch but I keep hearing about this "smoothing out" and have yet to experience it.

Love the CZ. I tried a 92 but it felt a bit big in my hand, whereas the CZ felt like it was made for it.

A long time. I would say once it hit the 2k mark , it really started improving. I believe I have a little over 2300 rds fired.

My experience with a 9mm 75B was about the same as "3Xbike". By 2K it was much better than OOB.

Don't forget that dry fire will perform the same miracles.

On the other hand, polishing a few surfaces will take you to a VERY smooth trigger in about an hour. Reducing the hammer spring (on the 9mm 75B) from 20# to 15# will also make your smile much bigger. With a 15# hammerspring, it will reliably fire all commercial 9mm ammo.

^^^^^^ +1 to what 1SOW said.

15# mainspring makes a notable difference and does not affect reliable ignition.

Been thinking about buying one or the other...or maybe go for a Hi Power. Heck, I'm 68 and I wouldn't put 2000+ rounds through any gun before they "plant" me. Guess I'd need a "trigger job".
