    I just bought what I believe is a pre model B Cz -75 (it has the rounded trigger guard). Can this weapon be safely carried in condition 2. Specifically, is it drop safe? If the hammer is accidentally struck can it discharge?

    Thanks for your help.

    I believe the CZ-75 has one of those things where the firing pin is shorter than the chamber it rides in, so it wouldn't hit the primer without a big strike only a moving hammer could give.

    I think what Metalman8600 is referring to is a inertial firing pin, early CZ-75 pistols did not have the firing pin block, CZ-75B models do, dont know if that matters, but "B" models can be carried with the hammer down, and a round chambered (condition 2). But i do not know about early models, but they should have inertial firing pins so there sould be no problem that i can see. You would carry it just like a "B" models. Hope this helps.

    It would be more dangerous if it were dropped on the muzzle, not the hammer. The original CZ75s have no FP safety, so dropping it on the muzzle from a height sufficient enough could allow the FP to slam forward under inertia hard enough to set off the primer of a chambered round. I've seen a number of CZ75s dropped (I worked for a company where they were the issue weapon), but never saw one go off from that alone.

    Dropped on the hammer, I strongly doubt it - it's been a while since I've had a CZ of my own, but in Cond 2 the hammer is already resting as far forward as it can go anyway.

    I suspect the FP block is more about import points than a real safety issue. The 'B' guns definitely don't have as nice a trigger pull as the earlier guns, and some remove the FP block on match guns.
