    I adore my CZ75B. It took a few hundred rounds for the trigger to feel good, though. Now it shoots like a dream. Nice and heavy, so very little recoil.

    I also got the Kadet adapter. It's been great for teaching new shooters because then it is the same grip and trigger when I step them up to 9mm.

    I put those nice Hogue grips on it, too. Love, Love LOVE that pistol!

    What is the right-most pistol? Is it a .40? It has the railed slide (like a 40), the curved DA/SA trigger, but seems to have the SA safeties... and the newer (SA-style) beavertail. I've not seen that combination of features. (I figured you -- or the custom shop -- swapped out the hammer.)

    Right most is a 75 shadow DA/SA with comp hammer.

    Came that way from the shop (not a CZ custom gun, but assembled at CZcustom I believe.)

    Ive had a couple, the first was purchased in the Munich Rod and Gun club in 1988 pre B model that I loved everything about but the finish, Easily removed with oven cleaner prior to having it matte blued and worked over by a German smith. Tragically I had to part with it shortly after getting out of the service in 89 due to a over mothering X wife who brought our daughter to the emergency room for every sniffle when we had no insurance. They werent importable at the time other than by returning service members and I got $1100 out of it, not to bad for a gun I had $500 in including the smithing.
    The second was a B model that I was sadly dissapointed in, The trigger was no where near as good as the pre B and it had the ugly squared off trigger gaurd, but it was accurate and reliable. My X decided she needed it more than I did in the divorce but returned it to me a year later sans one of the magazines. After the taint she left on it I had to get rid of it. Last weekend I shot a SP01 and it was love at first shot. I am jonesing for the shadow version converted to single action only quite badly at the moment and will have one before years end.

    I own a few, and am the "founder" of the "Official CZ Club" thread here. I would always strongly recommend that anyone interested check out a CZ or two and see what they are about.

    Though to be fair, even CZ makes the occasional "problem child" as I detailed a while back on a different forum.

    Very true Ze. My 9mm Rami gave me fits. I believe it was a first run with teething problems, mostly while using the 14rnd mags. The 10rnd mags never gave me any trouble. I traded it and am now ready to try it again.

    Other than that, my CZ's have been awesome. The only other guns I've ever tried that can stand equal to any of my CZ's is my Hi Power. Nothing else comes close. Recoil? What recoil? :neener: Seriously, the recoil is very tame. If I had the money to afford the ammo for it, I could shoot my CZ's all day long.

    They're Grrrrrrrrrrreat! :p

    Day, nice collection. I envy you of the CZ 75 SA. It's even harder to find in my area than a 2075 Rami, and they're just about impossible to find. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen one, outside of on CZ's website. :(
