    How is the accuracy and recoil? I am interested in looking at one but the seem very hard to find.

    They are fine handguns. I've had two. I don't seem to shoot well with them so I let them go. But they are good guns.

    I do better with the Tanfoglio made CZ clones (EAA Witness line).

    One reason CZ's can be hard to find is they are really nice guns for the price, and they have developed a following. They not only make fine handguns, but rifles as well. My CZ 75b is accurate and reliable. I have A Kadet conversion kit to shoot cheap >22 ammo with it, very handy.

    Because the CZ 75b is an all steel gun, the recoil is very manageable.

    Try CZ Customs.

    CZs are great guns, excellent acuracy, recoil is subjective:)

    Don't have one at the moment but have owned a couple, pre-B and a BD.

    Accuracy was excellent with both and being big all-steel 9mm's the recoil was very light.

    Currently have a Tanfoglio 9mm and it's my range gun, very pleasant to shoot and dead-nuts accurate.

    Got 3, Highly recommend.
    Got to look but they have a following.
    Soft shooting, dead on accurate for me. The only down side is it takes a couple hundred rounds to smooth out the trigger.

    Mine is a BD model. It is accurate, and almost makes me accurate. I think it is the balance and the weight. I like don't shoot as well with polymer guns. I don't know why.

    Pretty much what Furncliff and bikerdoc said; sometimes hard to find but a nice shooting gun with decent accuracy. Trigger needs a little work but still highly serviceable right out of the box. Adding a Kadet .22LR conversion is a very economical way to go and another good reason for getting a CZ75.

    CZ's are awesome guns. I know everything is subjective, but for the low price I don't think there is a better value out there. I own 2, the full-size 75B and the compact P-01. They are my favorite guns in my collection to shoot. The P-01, which I picked up used about 4 weeks ago, is my favorite. CZ's are just as good as many other guns priced $600-$800 IMHO.

    Mine is the CZ 75 P-07, the polymer version.

    It's the most accurate, easy-to-shoot gun I have. I see it as a splendid tactical weapon.

    I have the CZ 75B. It is very accurate and I find the recoil to be softer than other 9mm pistols I've used. (I'm mostly a revolver guy.) It handles my hard cast lead bullet reloads great. We got this for my tiny wife, who is somewhat recoil sensitive. But the grip, balance and weight make this very comfortable for her and she is deadly accurate with it. Sometimes she lets me use it. :D

    She likes it so much, we got the 22LR Kadet conversion. In her hands it is about as accurate as her Ruger Mk II competition model.

    I consider the CZ 75 line to be a heck of a value and wouldn't hesitate to get more of their products.

    My carry gun is a PCR. Love the thing. Feels great, points naturally, most comfortable gun I've ever held in my hands, and that's with the stock grips.

    Wish I was a better shot, to do it justice.

    I own a CZ 75B, and owned previously a CZ 75B compact, which I traded & now I wonder why. It's a heavier gun, due to it's steel construction, which I like. Recoil is very manageable due to it's weight. Both were as accurate as any pistol I've shot at 10-15 yards.

    I own a ever so slightly used polished stainless 2008 model CZ 75 B $525 locally & a 2009 model CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom(Polymer decocker) $485 shipped through Bud's both are VERY nice guns to shoot!

    After I bought my Phantom my Springfield XD 9 just sat in the safe. Ended up selling the XD 9 not to long ago.

    I have one, love it. It is a full frame, steel 9mm. I find mine to be very accurate and reliable. I would buy another.

    My .02 is that it is an excellent full size 9mm pistol.

    I have a lightweight, compact, decocking version, the PCR. Very pleased with it, no issues.

    CZ makes a wonderful line of guns.

    My 75b Compact


    My 85 Combat


    You can buy CZ online very easily - just find a FFL to receive the gun.

    I always say to shoot a gun before you buy it.

    You can usually find one to shoot from a friend or at the range.

    Good luck in your hunt.
