    Could anyone give me a little insight on the CZ 85 Combat version ? thoughts, Opionins. Also how about Kadet .22 conversion kit?

    Price on both?

    Looking at purchasing one

    Firstly, it is not a B series CZ. As it has no firing pin block.
    The 85 Combat also has an adjustable trigger for over-travel.
    Along with adjustable sights.

    A better standard of fit and finish than a 75B MIL, but also a
    higher price tag. Most owners are very pleased with them..
    and you rarely hear of one with problems.

    The KADET .22 conversion unit will fit on the frame and offers
    a cheap way to practice.

    I'm not sure of the going price for the 85 Combat. I really
    have no use for one, as i have other full-sized CZs.

    Ill second everything CZF say's. The Combat is a full ambi version (if Im not mistaken) of the 75, with a better finish and fit...not by much though. I think the name is misleading and should be called the Comp. version...its much more geared towards stock level competition that Combat. Its a great gun an has a great trigger...sans the FPB that can be finicky at times.
    Shoot well

    Mine's a great gun too. Smooth trigger out of the box. Very accurate. The adjustable sights alone are worth the extra money. I think street price on them in the free states is about $400? I got one for that in Kali about three years ago.

    All for $550/including Transfer to FFL

    Another question?? Will the CZ 85 except the 15 rd mag?

    Yes, the 85 Combat , 85B will accept the 15 shot mags:)


    I agree with Eric. The "combat" title is kinda misplaced.
    Adjustable sights really don't belong on a combat pistol,
    unless they are protected like the MMC or S&W design.

    The 85B is what they should have went with for the B
    series, leaving the Pre B alone. Well we can't change
    that now.

    The 85 Combat is a class act among Cee-Zeds.

    Have Fun with your new CZ!
