I owned a CZ-75 BD Police and I loved it, I don't have it anymore and I don't remember why I got rid of it, I must have needed the money or something. The next pistol I buy will probably be a replacement for that loss, but I've spent enough money on guns over the past few months, maybe this Fall I'll get one.
solid gun, accurate, reliable..good ergonomics. like other gun..some may have issues..but all easy to remedy..
solid gun out of the box..gets better with some breakin..
Bought about 40 more over the years, about 12 of them pistols.
It's the last pistol I'd sell from my collection, and not for sentimental reasons.
If you think you want one, buy it. It's highly unlikely you'll regret it.
Some of the best guns made. I really like them!

Anyhow, they're great pistols, never heard a bad thing about them. Personally, I think they look kinda...well, un-American. Ugly gun compared to a 1911, but most guns are hideous compared to such a beauty.
The CZ75b is VERY accurate, very ergonomic, has very good capacity and they just plain work.
- Complexity of design (compared to other firearms)
- Springs - generally weak, can be replaced
- Slide Stop (people have had issues with breakage; I wonder if the problem isn't exacerbated by the quality of springs)
- For some folks gripping the slide in a tap, rack, bang situation is difficult due to the slide riding inside the rails
- There have been cases of the firing pin being ejected out the back of the slide when the cheap rollpin that holds it in place breaks - rare
Personally, I see more positives than negatives....for an all around 9mm
Older doesn't always mean wiser,
-- RETAIL! This is a perfect example of Murphy's Law of Firearms Acquisition. It remains a beautiful piece of fine accuracy and elegant simplicity. Son #1 will inherit it. You will enjoy yours too!
I think Wolff is probably the place to go for springs. I've got 3 CZ's and haven't had any reason to play around with springs or slide stops.
I understand both issues were manufacturing-related and have been resolved.
FWIW, I believe the slide stop issue didn't affect the gun's ability to fire and was caused by stress due to a misalignment of the hole on the frame.
