Did I do good? CZ 75B stainless.


May 8, 2012, 02:22 PM
Today bought a NIB CZ 75B satin Stainless with factory cocobolo grip panels, two 16 round mags and all factory stuff for $517.23 out the door. Was a gun he got on closeout the LGS said. I think I did pretty good. Looking forward to range time. Thoughts please? Don

I would say that you got a pretty good deal on it. Especially with the wood grips. Well done!

May 8, 2012, 02:30 PM
No pictures? Then I don't believe you!!!! :neener:

May 8, 2012, 02:39 PM
you did great but where's the pics man :evil:

May 8, 2012, 02:43 PM
Budsgunshop sells them for $ 650 nib so you did very good. They are the cat's meow of CZ 75.

May 8, 2012, 03:17 PM
Very nice. +1 on where are the pictures!

May 8, 2012, 03:23 PM
Where did it come from, Paris?

May 8, 2012, 03:57 PM
Very nice. I just paid over 600 for one with black grips.

May 8, 2012, 04:09 PM
You did very good if you really got it.

Show me the pics!

I'll pick it up tomorrow at the LGS. When I saw the price tag, I asked him if it was nickel or stainless. He said "stainless". I said "are you sure??" He said "yeah, but let me check the box". Box says "SS". I said "since I'm such a good customer and have brought you a lot of business how much can you come off the tag?". "None" he said, "I can't get any more because it was a closeout". He still took off a couple percent. Since he owed me for a gun I sold through him, he just said he'd subtract the price of the 75B from what he owes me..... and wrote out a price of $517.23. I said I'd go home and think it over, which I did (for about 2 minutes) and let him know. Called him back and said to put my name on it, and I'll come get it tomorrow. Doing the happy dance here!!! Will post photos tomorrow. Those cocobolo grip panels are sure nice. Don

That's a good price - I particularly like the brushed satin-looking stainless 75's.

May 8, 2012, 09:30 PM
I'd be smiling ear to ear. I think you will make us all even more jealous when you post the pics. Enjoy it.

May 8, 2012, 10:17 PM
From what I read, little break-in is usually needed on the CZs because the factory cycles the assembled guns in an oil bath to smooth them up before cleaning and shipping. Don't know if it's true though. But I do read many many favorable reviews on the 75B that talk about fine accuracy, strong build, and the ability to digest just about an style 9mm slug. I do know this one has a fantastic natural feel in my hand though that I think will inspire confidence in my aim. Photos tomorrow I hope. Don

May 8, 2012, 11:43 PM
Stainless or nickel? Stainless, heck yeah. Nickel, not bad. Especially since I can't hardly find any 75B's or SP-01's anywhere in my area.

My 75B is the only gun I have ever regretted selling. No matter what you paid for it, it was worth it. Now, send it off to Ghost and get some work done on it to make it even better. With a couple adjustments and a couple different springs you'll be absolutely amazed at how accurate you really can be.

As a general rule: if you bought a gun, you did good.

At that price I wouldn't have had to go home to think about it! You got a great deal on a very nice gun. Enjoy.

May 9, 2012, 06:48 AM
Hello friends and neighbors // LOL the 16 rounds threw me for a sec, I really felt cheated, my 75B is in .40sw.

I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine. Congrats on a great snag/save at a better price.

May 9, 2012, 07:58 AM
I'd say you did fantastic. I was looking for a SS one a few months ago and couldn't find one anywhere.

May 9, 2012, 08:03 AM
Lets hope it's brushed finish and not that shiny gigolo job.

May 9, 2012, 09:07 AM
Where was you able to find CZ's in stock in Kentucky?

May 9, 2012, 10:53 AM
You got a good price & a great gun.

Here's my CZ 75B compact -love it


And my CZ 85 Combat - love it too




May 9, 2012, 06:17 PM
OK folks. Photos to show my new CZ75B satin stainless beauty. Yes, $517.23 OTD. I can honestly say I have never bought a gun I didn't want to personalize, but today I did. All I can say is I look forward to first range time.............Don

May 9, 2012, 06:22 PM
You're gonna love it


May 9, 2012, 06:24 PM
Another photo. Don.

May 9, 2012, 06:24 PM
Pretty as a picture, very nice.

May 9, 2012, 06:26 PM
Really nice

Congrats again.


May 9, 2012, 06:44 PM
Nice, good deal on that gun.


May 9, 2012, 06:53 PM
You did really good. Want to make $25.00 right now? :-)

How far are you from Glasgow?

May 9, 2012, 07:55 PM
She's a beauty. Good luck with her.

May 9, 2012, 07:56 PM
Great, if this thing doesn't go away in 4 hours I've got to call the doctor.

May 9, 2012, 08:00 PM
^^^Or call more ladies :evil:

May 9, 2012, 08:37 PM
That's an AMAZING price! I paid quite a bit more for my stainless steel 75B

May 9, 2012, 09:39 PM
Folks thanks so much. As to the price, even a blind hog sometimes finds an acorn. Oink Oink Snort I say. Oh yes. Bowling Green.
While on the subject, 147 grain, or 115. What's this beautiful girl digest best in you ail's experience? She will be a carry gun in colder weather, and I have on hand a selection of MagTech and Remington JHP's. Hoping for some guidance. Don

May 9, 2012, 10:14 PM
PM me if the store may have another.

I use my CZ 85 as my range gun, 115 grain works great.

The bullet weight does not seem to make any difference in any of my 3 CZ's.

They eat FMj / hollow point - all of it.

When I concealed carried the 75B Compact - I used Hydro-shock hollow points.

" Hydra-Shok is a type of expanding bullet used in commercial self-defense ammunition made by Federal Cartridge. It was originally patented by bullet designer Tom Burczynski. Hydra-Shok bullets feature a unique, patented center-post design and notched jacket. Together they are meant to provide more reliable expansion and deeper penetration. Center post designed bullets like Hydra-Shok have more predictable results and therefore offer some advantage as a defensive bullet.[citation needed] In ballistic gelatin, the bullet typically displays very rapid expansion resulting in a larger but more shallow wound channel than would be typical from most other bullet configurations in the same caliber and of similar weight."

Sirgilligan they told me that was the last one they had and when I asked, I was told they could not get any more at that price. I was just at the right place at the right time. Don

May 9, 2012, 11:27 PM
Well heck! Glad for you. Mine is deadly accurate, like most all of them. Post some range results!

May 10, 2012, 12:43 AM
Well done sir ;)

That's a great price on an excellent firearm. I'm jealous :evil:

May 10, 2012, 12:48 AM
124's seems to shoot the best in my hands, but it didn't mind cheap 115's either.

May 10, 2012, 06:47 AM

If it interests you there is a guy on eBay that sells replacement grip screws for 75s. I have them on mine, look cleaner ante Allen head as opposed to the big honkin Phillips head jobbers they come with. $12 and you get the set and shipping from Las Vegas was two days. They DO look better IMO.

May 11, 2012, 06:37 AM
Congratulations, my father has the same gun with the same grips and it is a cool looking pistol for sure (it is also very accurate). The finish is different: yours is sand-blasted while my father's one is brushed. Now you have only to get rid of those junky grip screws and replace them with a set of Hogue or Uncle Mike's ones: I've polished the head of the replacement screws to match the finish of the gun and I think it is fantastic now.

May 11, 2012, 06:53 AM
It that the "matte" stainless finish? It looks great.

May 11, 2012, 09:49 AM
You got an awesome deal. GREAT looking CZ there! :)

May 11, 2012, 09:54 AM
Thanks everyone. Yes it's the matte stainless version. I don't think I'll ever get another good deal like I did on this one. Don

May 11, 2012, 10:25 AM
So have you shot it yet?

May 11, 2012, 11:05 AM
Anyone knows who sells the Polished Stainless version of CZ 75 B. Budsgunshop only have the matte SS

liberty -r- death
May 11, 2012, 11:18 AM
The wood grips on it look very nice. Good score on a great looking gun.

May 11, 2012, 12:46 PM
Nathan I sent you a PM with a link to I think the biggest gun shop in KY. Don

May 11, 2012, 01:04 PM
