    its supposed to be in a sealed bag with oil (from what i have been told so far)

    i ask: what is the best stuff to clean it up when it is in this state?

    tonight i bought some "Winchester CLP" at Wally, figuring it would be suitable for the job

    was i correct, and will it also provide sufficient lube for the slide rails?

    CLP will clean it up quite well. I pretty much use CLP to clean and lube my CZ and it's never let me down.

    Congrats on your new CZ.

    Save your lube and get a Bottle of at least 91% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) to cut the crud. Using lube to clean lube leaves too much lube, my CZ likes to run on the dry side. Clean and lube are 2 separate steps IMO.

    Welcome to CZ addiction.

    Indeed clean and lube are 2 separate steps.

    A word of advice, use the snap cap provided and try to get 1000 trigger pulls, Amazing how smoth the trigger pull gets.

    Good luck! and enjoy.

    a snap cap wasnt included :(

    but when i ordered it, the catalog said i would get one 10 rd mag, but actually got two 16 rd mags

    but yeah, to say i'm thrilled would be an understatement

    when i cleaned it down with the Win CLP, i just wiped everything down after spraying all the surfaces, and used a few patches down the barrel

    do i need to specifically lube the slide rails? (or will the previous cleaning process with the CLP be sufficient?

    A few drops of oil after cleaning is good. My 75b has functioned flawlessly for many trips this way.

    Don't get upset if it's not in a bag. The dealer may remove it to read and record the serial number. Some may want to get a real look at the number to verify it.

    ok now im in the market for a magazine loader

    the two mags that came with are super tight even after i disassembled them and lubed them up

    cant get them to load past 12 rounds even though they show capacity for 16

    I cAme within an inch of buying a 75b today. I liked the sights, the grip(alot!), the weight etc...

    However I have two concerns. While the trigger was decent it had alot of takeup. It wasn't too heavy gritty or stacking the normal complaints but there was a lot of take up until the trigger started to "pull" on anything. I tried to examples and both had the long sloppy take up then were fine after that. Is this adjustable or fixable?


    And second holsters. I've been looking around and there are just not that many choices.

    550$ it'd though got me seriously thinking

    Don't lube up the Magazines. It will get debris and slow the spring rate and in time will cause problems. If you feel the need to keep them somewhat lubed up do this.

    Take them apart, clean them with hot soap and water. Dry it out very well and then take a silicone gun cloth and run it through the inside of the magazine body and lightly swipe it around the spring and follower.

    The silicone won't attract gunk like regular oil will.

    There is alot of take up single action because the double action pull is long.

    You could have the firing pin safety removed and a trigger job done by CZ custom which will shorten the pull and reset or you could just buy a model that does not have the firing pin safety. Both the shadow model and cz 85 combat come without a firing pin safety.

    The orginal CZ 75 did not have the firing pin safety, The current "B" models have it.

    For holsters I would go bladetech dropped offset if you like kydex.

    Your CZ should have come with a mag loader. Both of mine did. The 'universal pistol loader unloader acccesory' (UPLULA) is the best mag loader on the market. Last I saw, it was $25 at Academy. The one that comes with the CZ's is pretty basic but definitely works.

    You won't be sorry. The Maglula is the best loading gizmo I've tried so far out of about half a dozen.

    And for all that the Glock owners would have you believe that their guns were designed and produced by holy dieties the Glock mags have got to be THE HARDEST ones to load the last round into that I've come across.

    Congrats on a great gun. And if you are looking for something that isn't for concealed carry then look at Bladetech. I'm using one of their DOH model holsters for IPSC and it's very, very nice.

    Um, Hi. My name is Dallas and I'm addicted to CZ's. I bought my first CZ, a model 75B with TruDot sights, about a week ago after trying CZ for the first time the week previous. I couldn't explain it. I hit most everything I aimed at and everything felt so, so natural. After shooting a CZ for the first time I knew I had to do it again, and again, and again. I looked high and low for a CZ to call my own, and I know that despite getting one of my own last week that I'll likely end up with another. I want to get the rest of my family hooked on them, but most of them are apprehensive to try it out for the first time. I don't suppose I'll kick the habit, not that I'd want to anyways.

    Ha. Here's an interesting little story. I was shooting at a local indoor range about a year ago. I have some friends that work in probation and parole (I work in parallel agency) and one of the P&P guys I knew showed up one afternoon. Just so happened I had my SP-01 with a .40 top-end loaded with a really sweet, accurate handload (4.0 gns WW231, Missouri 170 LSWC).

    My friend had never fired a CZ, so I let him dry fire it and get a general feel for my SP, then handed him a mag of 12 rounds. He ran the full body silhoutte to 20 yards, then put all 12 rounds centered in the head. He just stared at the pistol for several seconds, then said, "Damn, I gotta get one of these . . . damn".

    :rolleyes:

    I have used CLP and switched to Gunzilla for cleaning. It cleans up easier and smells better. I use Mobil One Synthetic Motor Oil. Works very well. I have used it for going on two years with no problems. The best part is that it is cheap. A quart lasts forever.
