I've never owned a pistol before, and I am pretty sure I want of a cz of some sort in 9mm or similar caliber to plink with. Is there any particular model I should keep an eye out for? (I'm hoping to buy used) And what price point should I expect?

You want a CZ-75. You can get a police surplus CZ-75 or CZ-75 compact for under $400 pretty easily, and new/lightly used CZ-75 or P-01s for under $450. An SP-01 should be around $500-$550. If 9mm isn't cheap enough, another $250 gets the Kadet kit, which converts a CZ-75 to .22. CZ-82s and -83s are even cheaper at around $200-$300, but you may pay a little more for 9x18 ammo if you don't buy in bulk, they aren't as pleasant shooting, and they have smaller aftermarkets. They're fine plinkers though.

If those won't work, Tanfoglio and EAA both make good quality CZ clones. You'll get some additional cosmetic and frame size options, but they're essentially the same guns and have a lot of parts commonality with CZs.

Bumpin' this thread, I've got a CZ Shadow on order finally! :toot:

I'm very excited, I've wanted one for a while and it's pretty much the ideal 9mm for me.

Now I just need to get off my rear end and get the IPSC cert here..

While we're bumping this thread, its new CZ day at my house :toot:! No more .40 for me; I sold my OD Glock 23 and got this with some of the proceeds.





More (and better) pics coming later, but I love this pistol. It feels perfect in hand and the trigger is better than I expected. This P-01 was kept as a safe queen so it is in great condition. The VZ G10 grips feel grippy and I really like the way they look. The original owner threw them in. Got it all including shipping for about $475 (including 2 14rd and 2 10rd magazines).

P-01s look great, and I dig those grips.

Sadly I don't think there are any in Canada because the barrel's too short (unless there is a 3rd party barrel replacement option).

The TLR-1 on my Sig 229 looks like this too. I think it's cool.

I put the stock ones on briefly to compare. The VZ grips are noticeably thinner and very grippy. The rubber ones are wider and pretty grippy, they also feel very comfortable in your palms. I'd give the edge to the VZ grips based on the thinner profile and the grippy texture. It doesn't hurt that they look great too. I just wish they would make a compact version of their 'Frag' CZ-75 full size grips :(.

What caliber is your carbine in? I have an excuse to buy stuff in 7.62x39 now, and I'm considering a 527 in it.

For those who are interested: http://www.marschalgrips.com/cz75_82-thin/thincz75-82.html

These look pretty nice, and I may order a set for my 85.

Anyone heard anything about the 712? It seems like a solid semi-auto, especially for the price. Seems like aftermarket is limited, though. Is that accurate?

I thought I heard somewhere that CZ doesn't actually make the 712, just rebrands it or whatever. Not sure who makes it, and the reviews seemed a little so-so.

edit: some googling around has forum speculators claiming Turkish made. Makes sense, given the price, and I have a Hatsan I have no problems with so they're probably fine.

It's an incredibly pleasant little gun. I think it may be the most enjoyable-to-shoot rifle I've ever shot... Everything just seems to be so well thought-out. My only gripe is that I would prefer an aperture rear sight.

My 452 Lux in .22lr

The only rifle I trust completely to hit what I am aiming at every time. Placed 3rd in two BR 30 matches with it and scored in the bogong (fly) shoot. (hit a picture of fly, from 200m).


Click for huge.

I'm seriously considering getting a .223 in this, as well as a CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow once I deal with the paperwork for a pistol permit here. If the pistol shoots anything close to as good as the .22, I'll never get anything else!

That looks like way too much fun. You guys do have a FEW things over the states...


So, people should give me reasons to not buy a vz.61 Skorpion, since CDNN has them for $400 and they are pretty much awesome.
