    I've been drooling over this gun for months. I was given a very good deal on it today and I grabbed it! This is my 4th CZ type hand gun (I currently have a CZ 75D PCR, a CZ 82 in 9MM Makarov, and a Springfield P9 .40 Tanfoglio made CZ clone). Can't wait to get this baby to the range.

    Very sharp looking gun! I love the stainless ones - you might look into some Hakan grips for it ;) Congrats on the new purchase.

    I'm a recent convert to CZ's, should have done it years ago.

    Polished stainless. Lovely. Like he said, almost too pretty to shoot.

    Almost. I have one of those too.

    Please allow me to say - You Suck!

    That is a very nice looking CZ. I would love to have a stainless 75B, and .. and... Aw heck, I'd really like one of each model in each finish.

    Congratulations on your newest edition. Enjoy it.

    That's some shiny steel...I was just contemplating ordering a polished chrome RIA 1911 in .38 super just to have a shiny pimp gun like that.

    If it's the same as my 75B, it's not polished but like a satin finish.

    Thanks for the kind words everybody! I took my new toy out to the range today and man, what a sweet shooter!

    It's hard to tell from my crappy cell phone picture, but this is the polished stainless, not the satin...but the satin is sexy too, as is the black one. I'm throwing in a bonus picture of all of my CZ and CZ clone pistols. I would expect this happy family to keep growing. I see a CZ 52, 85, and P01 in my near future.

    Love mine. This is how mine stays most of the time. Makes one of the nicest .22s you can get.

    Nice gun. I would not buy all steel handgun that wasn't stainless. The high polish is nice as any marks accrued can be removed with Flitz metal polish.

    Polished SS looks so nice. I wouldn't get rid of that gun for anything. Nice gun!

    How do you like the Kadet kit? I have something similar for my Sig 229 and have been thinking about getting one for the CZ

    I would almost consider the Kadet slide a "must have" if you have a CZ 75 variant. Mine has run exceptionally well and it hasn't given me a problem yet with several thousand rounds through it. The Kadet is a very solid .22lr to begin with and it lets you take advantage of any custom work you've had done to the gun you're mounting it on. The result is that you can get an exceptionally nice .22lr for a very small cost.

    The one thing I will point out is that while you can reliably lighten your trigger using a light main spring (13lbs or less) with an extended firing pin in the 9mm slide, that same light main spring can cause light primer strike misfires with the Kadet slide. That said, I've found that my Kadet runs reliably on my Shadow's frame with federal target match in the 325 round boxes, even with a very light main spring. On the other hand, my 75B LE can run the Kadet reliably with just about any brand of ammo. Just something to consider if you're exploring options to lighten up your trigger. :)

    As Bozwell said, I would also consider the Kadet kit a must have. I have many .22LR handguns of all sizes and this configuration is one of my favorites. I actually purchased the gun and the kit together just to set it up like that after shooting someone elses.

    I shoot it so much I modified a HKS 940 speed loader to work with the Kadet magazine.

    Fine looking pistol, but you have only four cZs?

    My Kadet Kit spends a lot of time on one of my 75Bs.

    I hope to double or maybe triple that number in the next year or so.

    Absolutely love those polished 75's. Don't get me wrong, my BD is a fantastic firearm but that shine brings out the Bluejay in me.

    On a side note I took my new 97b out to the IDPA range today for some practice. Everyone thinks this is a bigger gun than the 75, but it's not. The dimensions are almost exactly the same. Only the LOP is a bit longer, and it weighs more. It felt like an old friend, hitting every steel the first time, even the smaller ones.

    That is a gooood looking pistol!

    Get the adj. rear and FO front sights, put it in a glass cover case with dark walnut frame, hang it on the wall over the fire place and take pictures. :what::D

    My 9mm plain-Jane 75b is my favorite pistol, but wish it had the higher beavertail the stainless version has.

    Re: Kadet Kit

    Some years back, I had a Ruger Target Competition in stainless. Long, slab-sided barrel. Shot beautifully.

    I later got a kadet kit for my collection CZs, and eventually traded that Ruger away -- as the Kadet Kit was just as accurate. (Yes, it's really THAT good.)

    I still have a .22 Ruger, but won't give up the Kadet kit until my last CZ is gone -- and I don't expect that for a long time.
