who doesn't love a CZ75?

with the first mag I shot thru a CZ75, it was immediately apparent what a wonderfully intuitively easy to shoot well/fast pistol it was .

after thousands of rnds thru mine (75B model), it's uber reliability shined brightly as well

in the local today goofing off window shopping, handled an SP01 for the first time

decided I had to have it





best yet, it may be the most accurate 9mm I've owned to date.
printing a sub 2" group @22 yrds (my table is currently at 22 yrds, not 25)





cold and windy, I didn't shoot much at all
but can say with pretty good certainty she'll be a damnfine shooter I'll be keeping for a good long time

might even pimp slick it out a bit

.L.T.A.

I am down to just two. A 75B and a compact. They are great pistols in my opinion. I have nite sights on the full size. I have got magazines from Greg Cote at a good price.

I've got an SP01 Cappi..... if I'm not shooting a 1911, it is hands down my favorite 9mm to shoot. Recoil....it just rocks back in the hand a bit....accurate as can be as you've discovered. I have plans to put a Cajin Gunworks Carry trigger kit in it but too many irons in the fire right now.

Congrats as they are darn nice pistols!!

No love for the 75 here. I have average/medium hands, but the reach is too long to the DA pull, thumb safety is too far away, no decocker, inside out slide rails get oil on your hands and makes a mess.

I had a CZ75B and liked it overall. It shot and pointed very nicely,but thumb safety was quite a reach. I didn't care for all of the roll pins.

I can't reach the thumb safety either. They do make the 75B and SP01 Tactical with a decocker.

I was tempted by the SP 01 Phantom (poly decocker gun http://cz-usa.com/product/cz-75-sp-0...m-2017-update/ ) a few years back, but then they left the US market for several years. However, they are back now. I may need to reinvestigate them.

I have a PO-1 that I will never depart with, just a great pistol that fits my hand like a glove.

And here I thought I was the only one who couldn't get with the program. I'm sure there are plenty of reasons for folks to love the CZ-75, but they don't fit me very well either.

Having said that Cappi, nice score and enjoy your new roscoe.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Nice! I think I want one of those for my next CZ. CGW has my 75B right now...

Congrats!

I love to shoot my CZ75 clone which is a somewhat rare Action Arms-ITM Swiss model AT84S made in 1987, I bought it brand new in 1988, it fits my large size hands well and I shot it a few times in combat pistol competition in the 1990s.

My two adult sons had shot my AT84S and they also like it, they also had shot my other Glock 17-L (long barrel), Glock 19 and HK USP .40 full size pistols.

They had not shot my 1911 .45 and Sig P226 9mm pistols yet, these would be next for them to try next time we go to the range.

Yep. Not a lover of the CZ either. Thumb safety too far forward and the slide is too deep in the frame for me to get a good grip. I respect them and they do point good. But for me they just don't fit well.

Glad you are one of the ones that it fits well for. Nice shooting and good looking gun. Enjoy.

Excellent firearm indeed!!!! I'm a big fan. A set of LOK Grips 'Palm Swell Bogies' makes a hell a difference improving the grip even more if you like grips that fill in the palm, like on target pistols.

http://lokgrips.com/gun-grips/cz-75/palm-swell

Also, if you think the CZ is up there with the best 9mm pistols (a sentiment with which I fully agree, by the way), then get your hands on a Sig 210... you'll have no doubt who takes the top spot!!!!

I bought a 75D PCR a couple of months ago. My first CZ. The PCR is nice!

+1 for the CZ75 love.
Reliable as hell, easy to shoot, especially Tactical Sport, Shadow and Shadow 2 work very nicely as IPSC Standard tools it seems

Yep. The CZ totally owns the 210, not even remotely in the same league much to my disappointment

The CZ 75 Series pistols are some overlooked gems.
Craftsmanship, reliability, function and quality in a $600 + or - package.



Compact CZ P-01. Made in the Czech Republic.

CZ 75 P-01
CZ 75 Compact variant intended for law enforcement use, with an aluminum alloy frame, decocker and under-barrel accessory rail. It is the new weapon of choice for the Czech National Police since 2001. It received NATO certification after undergoing extensive testing. Its NATO Stock Number (NSN) is 1005-16-000-8619.[5]

I'm definitely a fan of the CZ and pattern guns. I currently have a Shadow 2 and the Tanfoglio Witness Limited Custom in 10mm. Some folks don't "get" them which I completely understand....I can't seem to love the Glock and clearly many do.

For me, the CZ is the other feels good option, next to my 1911's

I have three CZ’s, just had my SP01 gone thru by CGW. The improvements with the trigger are great, made a good shooting gun a lot better. I have my 75B .40 there now.

Tried out a trigger on a CZ at my LGS.
Trigger pull was too long. I don't like DA/SA pistols.
Not a fan.
Glad you like it. (not being sarcastic)
