I don't. We cannot buy them New here, the Used ones at New prices have dried up, and CZ USA indicates they have no plans to have models designed and tested for this state.
Would I get one if they were on the MA Approved List plus the Atty General's "secret" approval list, YES.

In the loosest most technical sense I do (I have a VZ-24)

But as for a CZ Handgun, its on the list but I don't have extra cash for a pistol right now ... maybe you could contribute to my "Zundfolge needs a CZ Fund" ... email or PM me and I'll tell you where to send the checks :neener:

Or if you have an extra one you want to give away that would be fine too.



Then I'll have to start a "Zundfolge needs a pair of Hakan's Fund" :p

I don't have a CZ, and probably never will.

Why? Let's see. Me and my best friend got into guns at the same time. We agreed that we will not buy same handguns, so that every time we go to the range we get to take all of our guns and shoot all the different specimen. What fun is that if we have same guns? :confused:

Anyway, my first gun was Springfield Loaded, and his first gun was CZ-75B. I love that CZ, it is NICE, but I could not get one per our agreement. And he was always greening at me when I shot it... :cuss:

The situation resolved itself when I got me my own brand spanking new Browning Hi Power in 9mm, in a traditional deep-blue finish and wooden grips. He can have that CZ-75B for himself now, MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA

For a long time I've wanted a CZ and not had one. Missed my chance at a great deal when CZ had the 75 on special with a hi-cap. Then missed when they were selling 97s cheap.

Finally bought a CZ . . . a CZ 550 Varmint Laminated. Still no pistolas.

Finally I jumped on with the CZ 40B and found I hated the straight grip. SO that got traded off but I loved the gun so much otherwise I picked up a used CZ 75B right away. Now I'm trying to scrounge for a CZ 75 Compact.

After that I want a 97B then maybe an SA, I still have hi-caps from the 40B so I'll need to pick up another .40 CZ at some point . . . Oh, if I ever get CCW definately need a RAMI for a backup.

FWIW - since you don't plan on carrying your CZ why not go with the CZ-75? I've got two CZ-75's. A B in 9mm and a B SA in .40S&W. Correct me if I'm wrong but the RAMI is for all practical purposes just a 75 with a polymer frame isn't it (costs more too I believe).

I havent handled them very much, the ones I have picked up just didn't seem to fit. Ironicly glocks dont fit either, yet I own one.

Despite all of the positive posts I read here, CZs never come to mind when I'm shopping. I've got a mil-spec, pocket gun (probably the PM9), and an AR15 lower on the list right now. Remind me to get a CZ after September and I'll consider it...

I had a 75b. It was a very good pistol, especially for the money - but I just didn't shoot it well. I'd like to try a 75bSA someday to see if that works better for me. There's so much to recommend CZs that it's hard not to own one.

I don't have one yet. I would like to get a nice deal on a used one but I don't see them used most of the time! And I passed up on a good deal for a new nickel CZ75, due to another purchase (one gun or a CZ and lever action rifle... I chose the one) And I have been considering jumping into the 10mm with a Witness, but it's not a real CZ... excuses excuses I know.

I have had six clones over the years, plus a very accurate CZ75 Compact, which was sold only under the greatest of duress. The wife carries a CZ2075 RAMI 9mm, which she loves, and I would very much like a PO1 or the Holy Grail, (to me), the CZ75D steel frame compact decocker.....can't find one anywhere....

July 3, 2004, 01:07 PM
Nope, I haven't found a way to justify it yet. My Browning Hi-Powers cover the 75 deal. My XD-40 has the PO-1 covered and I plan on buying a Sig 232 which will cover the .380. I do have a hankerin for the biggun though, the 97. :D

I'm buying a new Smith .45LC Mountain Gun today and possibly a .45LC or 45-70 lever gun too, if the price is right. After these, another Hi-Power is probably next, the MK III is the only one I don't have so, the 97 might be a while. Oh, I also am getting some custom work done to my S&W M60 carry gun and I need to buy a new digital camera sometime too. I hate not being able to post good pics, all I have is my cell phone camera right now and it doesn't quite cut it for nice gun pics. I need to find a less expensive obsession.......:uhoh: :scrutiny:

I don't have any CZ's and really don't want any. I've looking at them before and they never really struck me as a good quality weapon, although I've been told different on many occasions.

Black Snowman
July 5, 2004, 07:00 PM
They remind me of AKs in that they are produced inexpensively but aren't "cheap". The quality of materials is excellent and the quality is where it counts. Sure they don't finish the inside of the slide to a beutiful surface or finish but it doesn't need to be. Unlike AKs they are accurate as all get-out (at least for me).

As I've said in other threads there biggest stumbling block here in the USA is their relatively poor stock triggers, and this could be easily remedyed at the factory by using higher quality cutters or making the cuts slower so they produce a smoother engagement surface. This would add to the production costs as they would have to either get more machines to keep pace or slow down the rest of the line, but I'm sure it would help sell them at the gunstore.

I am able to correct this small defiency myself in somewhere between 30 minutes and 3 hours depending on circumstances. The thing that really sells me on them is their ergonomics, value, and accuracy. I just shoot the things so damn well compared to other guns I just can't believe it.

Me too.. I dont have a CZ.

The only 2 CZ's I'm interested in slightly is the PCR and the Rami. But there are way too many other guns on my list before those even come close to me considering to buy.


I still need/want 8 more 1911's before any CZ's come into my posession.

CZ52GUY
July 7, 2004, 10:50 AM
...I have a CZ-75B and a CZ-75 Transitional (no firing pin block, but has the wider mag' well like the 75-B's).

I enjoy both, but I wouldn't consider them a BHP equivalent or vice versa.

A BHP is a BHP a CZ-75B is inspired by a BHP...not the same piece.

I have an Arcus (very much a BHP clone)...the operational controls are different, the ergonomics are different, the trigger is different.

Mr. Camp has good information on both BHP's and CZ-75's, as well as a good report on the CZ-83.

http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/

Both mine have terrific triggers...my CZ-75B is my "alpha-autoloader". I can hit what I aim at with it and have become very comfortable with its operational "nuances". I find it to be a very "forgiving" piece. My technique doesn't have to be perfect to get satisfactory results. My Glocks, on the other hand, require a precise intersection of all the required elements to get the results I'm after (which can also be useful when working out the kinks of something I may be doing wrong during practice).

Some find the safety and slide release controls of the CZ line uncomfortable, especially when compared to a 1911's.

I added Hogue FG grips to both and they fit me very well. They won't fit every hand and not everyone will get similar results.

If you don't have a CZ, you owe yourself the chance to check one out. If you tried it and don't care for it, that's fine too.

Since I have two CZ's...what I need, is a BHP Practical...but that's another story...;).

Safe shooting,

CZ52'

My first 9mm was CZ-75 but it was stolen :cuss: . Next I bought a H&K USP because I liked its sights better (my current pistol). Later when occasionally shooting a borrowed CZ I thought I should have bought another one instead :banghead: . CZ-75 fits my hand better than USP. However, nowadays I am more interested in Sig-Sauer pistols. Trouble is, those are expensive and scarcely available where I live.

Me!
I had one of the earlier Turkish- M il surplus 75B's.
It really was a great pistol, seriously!
Very accurate, easy to shoot and nicely ergonomic- for me at least.

I simply don't care for the 9mm in full sized pistols. The only full sized pistol I truly like and would carry is the BHP. That is probably just a JMB fetish sort of thing though...
I can carry my Kimber compact easier and have my .45 at the same time. :D

Since discovering the PM9 I have changed my tune on the 9mm though.
The 9mm and the PM9 are a match made in gun heaven...IMHO!

I really don't know how the newer compact CZ's compare to the PM9 yet.

I really think the CZ pistol are very well made as well as good values.

I have shot about 1000 rounds through my CZ75B, but I have never had it out when I didn't have at least a couple of other guns along, and I usually end up shooting my Blackhawk for serious target shooting. But I am using my CZ as a backup gun for my CCW test this weekend (main gun Glock 21), so I thought I'd better take the time to finally figure it out. I spent a couple of hours at the range, took copious notes, and figured out that it shoots about an inch low and an inch to the left at 21 feet. After figuring out where the sweet spot is in the sight picture, I started putting 8 out of 10 rounds through the 10 ring at that distance. Next time I will start working at longer ranges, but first I need to get a new prescription for my eyeglasses (I'm getting old).

I'm extremely impressed with the gun for the most part, but I have one complaint about the ergos. Those Czechs must have some freakishly long thumbs. There is no way I can hit the slide release without rotating my hand from shooting position.

If any Minnesota resident is interested, Armored Fire has a nice used 75BSA for $325.

Most folks think that you shouldn't be able to reach the slide stop without shifting your grip. That would make it awfully easy to accidentally depress the lever when shooting.

July 15, 2004, 08:29 AM
Redhat, why would it be a problem to reach the slide release while shooting? The slide release only releases the slide when it's locked in the rearward position after emptying the magazine, and it is not locked in the rearward position while shooting.

I can reach the slide release on my Glock 21 without shifting my grip and that has never been a problem in thousands of rounds. Every Glock I've ever shot, which amounts to well over a thousand rounds through a variety of guns--19C, 20, 20C, 26, and 36--have all featured the slide release where I could reach it with my human-sized thumb, and that has never been a problem. This is also true of my Bersa .380 Thunder and a Bersa .45 Thunder I shot at the range a couple of weeks ago. It's true of an .40 HK USP that I have shot many times. It's true of every Ruger autoloader that I've owned or shot. It's true of the Beretta 92/96, as well as the Taurus clones. In fact, every modern autoloader that I've shot in recent years has a slide release where I can reach it without rotating my grip except the CZ.

Did you think I was talking about the take-down lever or button? On the CZ this is also the slide release, but you break down the gun by aligning two marks and tapping the slide release out of the frame from the right side of the gun with the base plate of the magazine. It's a complicated and difficult procedure compared to stripping a Glock, and not one that you're likely to undertake by accident. I imagine that if you were an extremely unlucky lefty with freakish, hyper-developed thumb muscles who happened to press the backside of the slide release lever at just the exact fraction of a second that the hash marks were aligned you could have problems, but for those of us who haven't been inecting localized steroids in our thumb muscles this should not be an issue. Especially if we're right-handed.

I once owned a PCR and 97. Both beautiful and right-on-the-mark. But what good is looks and accuracy if a gun fails to feed when it matters the most or you can't customize it yourself if you wanted to? Of all the guns I have ever owned, the PCR had the most malfunctions and the 97 was -- and remains to this day -- the most difficult to find parts for.

CZF,

I'm being nit pickey. Your site that lists the features of the new compact .40 lists the frame and slide as steel. Isn't the frame alum. alloy like the P-01?

My CZ 75B .40 is a keeper now that it is set up the way I want it, but it first needed some gunsmith work to get it to run to my satisfaction.

Did you think I was talking about the take-down lever or button? On the CZ this is also the slide release, but you break down the gun by aligning two marks and tapping the slide release out of the frame from the right side of the gun with the base plate of the magazine. It's a complicated and difficult procedure compared to stripping a Glock,Emphasis mine...

You're kidding right? Taking down a CZ is a piece of cake in comparison to taking down a Glock. I always have problems with the Glock and getting my fingers set on those two really tiny little serated buttons on each side of the slide and pressing them down at the same time while holding the slide back just a bit. Field stripping a Glock isn't rocket science and it doesn't require world class hand/eye coordination to do but it is way harder than taking down a CZ IMO.

I thought Glocksters never cleaned their pieces, what do they need a field strip for, let alone to know about someone else's?:D

When I traded a Glock 22 I got $100 more than I should have because when the gun shop appraiser took it down he was so impressed with the cleanliness of the firing pin channel. Seems most folks never clean in there. I'd put over 2000 rounds thru the thing and he said it looked like new to him. Sometimes cleaning does pay off.;)

Why have a CZ 75 when you can have a Browning HiPower, S&W 5906 or a Ruger 95DC? All of the others are much more reliable than the CZ that I sold.

Lobotomy Boy,

What I meant was; If your thumb can contact the slide stop with a normal firing grip there is the possibility of depressing it accidentally which could cause the slide NOT to lock open after the last shot is fired.

I don't personally think it is a defect in the weapon if I have to change grip during reloading to drop the magazine and release the slide stop.

It just doesn't matter one way or the other.

As for aligning the witness marks on the rear of the slide to disassemble the pistol...maybe that's why I had to use a hammer on mine

Thanks for the tip
