I’m a huge CZ fan, have P01 Omega, PCR ( both with pro package from CGW) SP01T and P09. The ergonomics fit me well and I like the DA/SA trigger mechanism, especially for carry.

Also a huge DW fan as well, with a Specialist Commander and TCP.

CZ markets some fine firearms. Am happy they are reportedly opening up a production facility in the US

Had four two built by CGW. Sold the SP01 and 75B to fund a Brazos 2011. Still have a Tactical Sport which is amazing for a factory gun and have a PCR.

Back in the early 90's I owned a brand new CZ 75 (pre B) which was fantastic. The double action trigger pull was relatively short (for double action), silky smooth, and light (probably about 6 lbs). And it was super reliable and super accurate. It was so reliable that it kept on functioning even after I got some sand on the slide rails during a firearms qualification course that I was shooting on a sand filled range and it was raining at the time.

I stupidly sold that pistol back in the mid 90's and CZ stopped importing them. Since then they only import the inferior CZ 75B which has a longer, heavier double action trigger pull that has a stage break halfway in the trigger pull. I bought one of the newer CZ 75B models because I miss that CZ 75 pre B and this new one is in the polished stainless finish. Crappy trigger pull aside, the new B model is just as accurate and reliable as the old, and much better pre B model. I also have to admit that the Compact P01 SDP with the Cajun Works improved trigger and night sights looks very tempting. I had a regular Compact P01 model and it felt great in my hand, but, that double trigger was total crap. It was super long and super heavy (probably 9lbs pull). I've read that the Cajun Works model has a much better, lighter pull weight and smoother trigger pool. I may have to get one. Unfortunately, they're difficult to find brand new because they only produce a few at a time.

Lots of great guns!

I am planning on a Shadow 2 fully cajonized. Then looking to build out something a little smaller to carry and canonizing as well I think.

I can buy at cost as well.

My shadow 2 price is $950

You are good company if you like the various CZ 75s'. Col. Cooper also liked them also. The CZ 75 also inspired the Bren Ten.

Slight thread hijack here, but if I am looking at a CZ and like smaller guns, do I want a RAMI or just a compact 75?

At last count, the 1911's around here numbered 23 but the CZ may be next in line. First thought I wanted a 75 Compact but saw some at a recent gunshow and thought the full size actually felt better in the hand. It will be a range gun, so I'm leaning toward the SA version. Any thoughts on DA vs SA?

OP: get a CZ-made 1911 and you can still be in the 1911 club

I Like CZ pistols as well. I have a 52, 50,70,82,83,75,97,and a pcr. I think that's it, at least for Cz pistols.

I have a CZ 75B 9x19 My first DA/SA semi-auto
Read the original report on it with Jeff Cooper in
Guns & Ammo magazine late 70s. He gave it his approval
since you could carry it Cocked & Locked with the Caveat
of if you want a 9mm Luger I've had it about 10 years.

I have long hands so the reach to the DA is not a problem
Nor is dropping the hammer manually. I have a Left index finger and
know how to use it

Uber reliable, and accurate The design has certainly
spawned a host of variations. Easy to field strip and reassemble

FWIW
I have four 1911 variants
EDC RO Compact in .45 ACP

I came real close to the compact, but went with the RAMI
because the RAMI is smaller and you have your choice of
either 10 or 14 round magazines. The 10 is smaller. The 14
is an extended magazine. In the compact you also have 10
and 14 round magazines, but they are the same size. The
10 round magazine is a commie state compliant limited
to 10 round magazine.
Hope that helps.

Both are made in de-cock and safety versions. I have a P-01 and Rami BD which are both de-cock and have aluminum frames.

It will depend on how bad you want to conceal. With the 14 round clip the Rami has the same grip length as the compact, however the slide is about 1" shorter. With the 10 round clip the Rami becomes 1" shorter in grip length and will print less.

Both are very accurate and comfortable to shoot. The Rami is very comfortable to shoot even with defensive ammo. It uses a unique larger outer recoil spring over a smaller stouter spring encapsulated in a guide rod. Cajun gun works has the whole Rami spring assembly for about $15 and recommends replacement every 1000 rounds. If you have larger hands you may only be able to get two fingers around the grip with your pinky wrapped around the bottom of the 10 round magazine. It's still easy to shoot with this grip. This is eliminated with the included 14 rounder. The Rami will accept all current produced CZ 75 magazines. Personally I like carrying the 10 rounder and keep a loaded compact magazine for a spare.

The compact is going to print more but has a longer barrel and may offer a slight velocity advantage. The newest compact magazines from Mecgar offers 15 rounds. Many folks say that the compact shoots just as well as the full size versions and is easier to carry. So while both are great pistols, it will most likely come down how bad you want to conceal and which one you shoot the best. I wound up getting both. The Rami would also be a more viable option if you plan to appendix carry, however you really can't go wrong with either.

I manually lower the hammer down to the half-cock notch (which is how the pistol was designed to decocked) so I have a decent double-action pull for the first shot. The safety is never engaged on mine, except if there is a pause in the string of shots.



(I know a lot of folks get all twisted up about manually decocking a pistol, but I grew up in an era before everything was redesigned to satisfy the product liability lawyers, and manually decocking a firearm was just another skill a firearm user commonly used.)

You grew up before the Walther P38 and the S&W M39? Man you are old.

Make sure you buy a new version with relief cuts in slide stop locking blocks. My Shadow 2 just broke a piece off in that area, and this is a known issue with early 2s that don't have that relief cut.
