    I purchased a new satin nickel cz75b last week. This was my first trip to the range with it.

    Great shoot'n! Knew you'd enjoy that gun. CZ grips, like Sigs are just a little too big for me. But glad you can handle this one well!

    How was the trigger pull?

    I got a 75B Blued in 9x19 a year and a half ago for a range gun to
    lower cost as I shoot .45s - 1911 and 625 The CZ 75B I cleaned up the
    shipping goo from the factory off of it, lubed i and then shot every type
    of 9x19 I could find - zero glitches 680 rds finally cleaned it
    satisfied it's a reliable platform - and silly accurate. Great handgun

    The only problem that I have found with my CZ is that I could not own just one.......:what:. As others will say, "They have a tendency to breed in your safe".

    Nice shooting. Don't have a satin yet. Yet............:rolleyes:

    Butter,

    The trigger was long as usual in double action, but not too bad at all in single. I am going to shoot it a while then send it off to CZ for a trigger job. I've read alot about their trigger jobs, all good!

    The bad guy target has double and triple taps. Not bad for a first range trip, it can only get better. :cool:

    Get the thin aluminum grips from CZ Custom. They're expensive ($85) but worth it IMO. Made a huge difference for me when handling the gun. Feels as thin as a 1911.

    Thanks, but I don't want my gun grips to be thin. I have long hands and appreciate the bigger grips. I'm getting the wrap arounds with finger grooves from hogue. :)

    Hey, but the alumina grips might be something I can get into if I pick up a CZ. Still.....double action.....hmmm. Nothing like the trigger on a 1911. :) But cool go'n Brian. I think you got a winner!

    That's good shooting and I'm sure you're going to love that 75B. I shoot almost all cast bullets in mine and I've found that this is an excellent load: 124 grain Lee round nose bullet sized to .357" over 5.2 grains of 4756 powder and a standard primer. Total cartridge length is 1.135". At 23 yards I can keep most of my shots on a Coke can and those that miss are very close.

    I really like those grips. Wish I could try some out to see if I liked them before deciding to buy.

    Nice shooting. Bet you buy another whilst yours is getting its trigger job!

    Those thin grips look interesting, but $85 is a bit of a pop if I don't like them.

    Now it's time to get a Kadet kit.

    Install a 15# hammer spring while you're at it. Really lightens up the DA trigger pull and doesn't affect primer hits.

    Congrats on the new purchase. That's some impressive shooting. I love my 75BD. They are amazing guns.

    My Compact is a pretty good shooter. The group below was fired before I installed the F.O. front sight and I can't get as good of a group with the fiber optics.

    Five shots at 7 yards, offhand:

    A CZ75 SA with a comp. trigger is a thing of beauty.

    Interesting, I too took a new (to me) CZ-75b to the range for the first time this weekend. I am not as consistent as the OP but had plenty of dead-on shots on some very unlucky cans and water bottles.

    Did have some FTE's with Federal ammo, some cases showing a lot of blow-by. Are CZ75b's finicky with ammo? Is there perhaps another issue at hand? thanks!

    I will change things on it over time, but for a first time out this pistol did great!

    I plan on sending it in for the comp trigger eventually and I'm getting the hogue grips. :cool:

    Col. Pink,

    I have a CZ SP-01 converted to .40 (basically the same thing you have). Mine is dead on reliable. I reload, and have used 170 LSWC's, 220 gn TC lead bullets, and 180 JHP's. The only change I have made to mine is a lighter recoil spring.

    Ejection of the cases is how I determine the recoil spring selection. I look for the empties to be 4-6 feet away. If they drop at your feet, or only go a foot or 2, you need a lighter recoil spring for the load your using.
