Shot my new TSO yesterday. Everything you’ve heard is true. Trigger is 1lb 12oz. 200 trouble free rounds and easy to shoot extremely well. This is the greatest bargain in a target pistol on the entire planet. Go get one!

It truly is an incredibly easy pistol to shoot accurately. About 3 weeks ago I bet a guy $5 that I could hit a Coke can at 100 yds on the first shot (from a rest of course). Well....I lost. But the 2nd, 3'rd and 4'th shots all sent it flying. I have to work to hit stuff at distance with my 1911's. Not so with a TSO.

And this is exactly why I had to just get one.


***n enablers!! LOL

Actually these are the type of guns that are such a joy to shoot. The bad thing is that I spent what I did on those that are not. The good thing is I haven't done that in awhile and not on that many. I've often visited this thread while chewing on this one.

Personally I would rather have fewer guns of this caliber than numerous guns which just go bang.

Dangitman.....this thread is gonna cost me some money, money, money.


I had a 75B and didn't really like the overall setup. I'm a died in the wool 1911 fan and wound up selling my SA/DA guns and buying some new Dillon reloading gear.

There isn't a local dealer for CZ that carries any type of inventory so it was harder to get zeroed in on their product line.

This thread is more helpful than anything I've run across.

The single action model is very appealing, however I'd have to feel the safety and the gas pedal and see how they position in my large hands.

The 9mm sounds really appealing.

The model year will make a difference as to size and customizability of some of these controls. It appears that a number of users had issues with the size and customizability of some of these controls on the version prior to the 2019 model. Don't quote me but I am going off of what I have gathered from taking a look at this over the last couple of days. It appears what they used previously was more specific to the Tactical Sport Orange where now the controls are more what the Shadow 2 was using. This appears to give you a little more flexibility and there are a few sites where it appears you can swap some of these out for different size controls.
As I said don't quote me and hopefully some others will provide a bit more expertise on this.

Problem is I have yet to find a treasure trove of information on these differences and in fact the CZ website provides very little and actually they still display the older model on their website. I have yet to even find a CZ site or any site for that matter besides a users post on a forum that goes into any of the differences whatsoever. It's almost as CZ made sure the TSO was improved but decided it wasn't good enough to advertise what or why they did it. Frankly I don't understand it because it sounds like they made the gun a bit better but decided to keep it secret.

This is some of what I have found so far with regards to various parts and here again not all of these sites actually state what they are and are not compatible with. I’m thinking however that the latest model from 2019 is more compatible with the Shadow 2 with the exception of the grip which you need to make sure they work with the magwell.

https://benstoegerproshop.com/gun-pa...ategory_page=1
http://fasttoys.net/ca/CZ-Czechmate-...rt-Thumb-Rest/

Hopefully those with greater experience here will chime in a bit more but I have looked at a few CZ forums and still have yet to find that much because there really are few threads created on this gun. I know it's more expensive than the average CZ but still expected to find more than what I did.

Looking for a bit of help with magazines for the CZ TSO.

Is it true that the only way to buy the basepad and magazine seperately? Or are there places that sell them together and if so where?

Although out of stock right now, I bought mine from Greg Cote LLC. You can sign up to be notified when in stock. Also...any CZ dealer can order them for you.

If you can live without the nifty, orange basepad, the regular Mec-Gars (factory issue) mags will do nicely. Here's where I've gotten all of my extras......

https://grabagun.com/magazine-cz75-t...rce=igodigital

They work like a charm, and it sure beats the price of the ones with the aluminum basepad!!!!!

If you're seeking the orange basepads, well, that's a different story....

Armory Craft is a good source for baseplates, triggers, etc. for the TSO: https://www.armorycraft.com/

Check Cajun Gun Works too.....choices are more limited but great guys to do business with.

The TSO is an amazing gun for the price. My Shadow 2 Orange was several hundred more and honestly I think the TSO is a better gun for the money.

Just picked it up.

It is the 2019 version, which I'm glad to see.

This one is hefty, but not bad. I'm used to and like heaveir guns.

The trigger is pretty light.

Not sure about the orange bits but it's not offensive enough that I feel the need to rush out and change it. Wasn't sure how the aluminum grips would feel but those too will work for now.

Hope to get the chance to fire it in the next few days.

I too have thought about a pair of the LOK grips. I wish there was a slimmer magwell available too that matched the frame a bit better.

Thanks, and I have already seen this video. I have taken a look at the Lok Grips site. I'm just not sure what I want to do yet. But if I do I will probably will want to switch out the matching magazine release as well.


I am thinking I want to fire it as is first however.

New grips,orange mag release, and bits like the larger thumb rest, metal trigger, and larger safety which are harder to see and it's fairly easy to tell this is the 2019 version.

Picked mine up Wed. 9mm after a long wait (~6weeks) and had a chance to take to the shooting range yesterday. Most of the guys at the range/shop were interested to see it when it arrived, and I let the RO shoot several rounds. He was very impressed, and I was too. About 150 rounds fired with no malfs, accuracy outstanding, and very mild recoil due to heft of gun. I am not much of a shooter, but it made me look good. I can't shoot it very fast without losing my accuracy, but am sure that many of you guys could tear out the x-ring at speed. Way more gun than my limited skill can appreciate, but I also like to allow others at shop/range or friends to shoot and try out for fun. Little tricky to break down until I watched a youtube video, then easy. It is a high quality and fun to shoot gun. If you see me at the range Cypress Creek, and it is with me, just ask and you can shoot a mag or two. However, you supply the ammo, as it burns through it fast.
