I'm contemplating purchasing a handgun. What's the concensus on CZv82 vs. the CZ 75, aside from price.

the 82 felt slimmer and made the webbing on my hand hurt a bit after a couple of mags compared to my 75 and p01 which don't hurt at all. All are very accurate. The trigger on the cz75 in DA or decocked DA can be a bit hard to reach with smaller hands and will tend in you pulling your shots low when you first get it. It is a bit easier with the p01 but it still catches you when you get lazy and in a hurry with maintaining a sight picture. I assume bigger hands would be fine with this.

Where are you located? What are you doing with the gun? Which version of the 75 were you looking at?

I'm going to go ahead and STRONGLY recommend these AK/AR mag pouches. They're BY FAR the best I've seen. Very solid construction so they don't sag, PALS webbing on the outside to attach pistol pouches or whatever to the front, they're lined with velcro so you can attach a tiny square to your mags to hold them in or use the built in bungee loops. They beat the poo poo out of the HSGI Tacos I had before.

Where do you buy these from? I was looking for ak single mag pouches mainly and could only find the HSGI ones. Even looking now I don't see a place to buy them.

You can buy a tactical tailor mav 2piece with the padded shoulder harness for 120 if you had your own pouches or wanted something different in terms of layout. Leave off the shoulder harness and just buy the two piece vest for 70$. Add on stuff down the road if you wanted. They have water/hydration carriers too. If you wanted it all together and shoot an ar then 170$ ends up being cheaper.

Wait that grip is configurable? I didn't like the Gen 4 it because the finger grooves bit into my fingers.


For the feeling of the least recoil, get a semi auto full metal full frame weapon. If you are only using it for home defense, their is no concern of it being concealable. Something like a 1911 or CZ 75B would be great. Two of my tiny friends love the my 1911 over the Glocks and Sigs they have tried. Then again, one of them loves shooting the shotgun now that she doesn't hurt her shoulder from it all the time. (5'3" 110lbs Asian descent girl). The other is a 5'0" 100lbs Ukranian.

Everyone loves a nice trigger, single stack 1911 I have found. The cz 75b I would not recommend to someone with really tiny hands unless you make sure you buy a safety equipped one as the trigger pull in decocked DA mode can be a bit long for them unless they practice with it a lot.

I've got a carry weapon I no longer need up for trade, and am looking for a CZ 75 for competition. I was kind of sold on the SP01, but I have an early offer for a plain 75B... is the difference that great between the two?

I know the SP01 requires some tweaks to qualify for IDPA, but otherwise I hear it is better on all counts. Do any CZ owners here agree/disagree?

I was checking some notes as I'm struggling to remember but I am very sure that the size of the grip on the sp01 is the newer style like the p01 compared to the older way of the 75b. The new grip size (overall butt and where you hold it, not the grip panels) is reduced a bit for smaller hands. The sp01 shoots with very little muzzle flip. Very little. The 75b has more. The sp01 feels well balanced while the 75b feels like the weight of the gun sits further back in your hands.

The sp01 requires you to get lighter grips and then hope your mag is light enough to get into the IDPA SSP weight limit. They make a variant that is lighter (shadow???) that helps iirc. Make sure you know which sp01 you want before you buy one as there are 4+ variants last I checked.

If I had an sp01 in my safe I would shoot that more if at the range practicing for longer sessions as it is more comfortable to shoot in the long run. In my notes I have that the sp01 has a longer beavertail also.

AR posted:

Question #2 would be: which is an even trade for a Smith 642 TALO package, like the one I just listed in the classifieds? Am I giving up too much for a plain B?
The flip on the sp01 is very very minimal from my experiences with one.

How much were you looking to get out of the 642 package. I checked and saw them starting at 440 on gunbroker for just the pistol alone. If your pistol is in excellent condition then the other person would be getting the better end of the deal with a plain cz75b. If you found a pre-b in excellent condition then it might be fair but even then it is only because you have a pre-b cz75 which is not what you seem to be looking for.

I do have a cheap cz75bd that I rarely shoot anymore and I was casually looking around for a 642. Did you just want a cheap well used fullsize 9mm to shoot or were you looking for a somewhat newer cz75 for trade? Why don't you live in Philly as the shipping and ffl fees were the only things that stopped me from emailing you about the classifieds post. I would not recommend the decocker if you wanted a range gun or wanted to send it out to get worked on as between the firing pin block and decocker, there is only so much you can do to the trigger.

I have an old Stevens 53b, single shot .22lr rifle that I picked up a couple months ago, and today (have put ~ 500 rounds through it total) it started blasting something, hot air I think, back towards my face a bit when I fired. I'm thinking something is wrong with the seal around the chamber or the bolt, or is this just kinda something that single shot .22s can do. Visually, there are not sparks or anything flying back, just a puff of scalding air, and perhaps mini shrapnel too.

Do I just ditch the cheap gun and get a proper working rifle, or is it safe to keep using?
How clean is it? If you haven't scrubbed it clean yet, do that. My .22's will do that when I don't clean or lube them in a long long time.

Something I've always wondered: does "brick" refer to the plastic 100 round pack with individual holders, or the 500+ round loose-packed box?

usually it is 10 - 50rnd packs for a brick of 500 rounds total. The loose packed is called a bulk pack as far as I know it and is more than or equal to 500 rounds.

That 100round plastic tray is mostly CCI I think. I have far more 50rnd trays that slide into cardboard boxes than I do 100 round trays across the various types of ammo I have right now.

Thanks for the advice.

You did mention plinking .22lr guns and not something 'super accurate without tinkering that you can pass onto your kids'. Taking that into consideration I would tell you to look into buying a 200-250$ rifle like a savage, then also go ahead and pick up a .22lr levergun like the henry for 250$ or even a decent .22lr revolver for what you would have spent on one cz rifle. This is only if plinking at 75yds or less is all you will do with the rifles. You can plink with a 130-250$ rifle perfectly fine.

I know that the trigger is less than optimal than just a plain ol' B, bit is there anything else I'm overlooking? Any reason why I should avoid the BD?
You can't remove the fpb on the decocker models iirc when racing your gun out for competition. This gives you a longer trigger reset than a safety model with the fpb removed. Some sp01 variants will come without a fpb from the factory also. The trigger reset is the one thing on my stock cz's that I have come to dislike every once in a while when try to shoot rapidly as it catches me when I don't let the trigger out enough to reset. There is also a difference in sizes in the frame between the plain old 75b and the newer ones in terms of ergonomics and frame materials. Depending on if you want to run with the custom tuned pistols guys is up to you. It may be better to have a pistol that you can use down the road if you decide too though instead of the decocker. Why are you not looking at sp01's? You have access to a p01, 75bd and an sp01 if you need to shoot them more to decide.

I would like to obtain a longer slide for my P-01 for shits and giggles. Will a standard 75B slide mate with my frame and function properly, or do I need to do something else?

My 75bd top end fits on my p01 and will chamber snap caps and cycle fine. Decocks and everything like normal. I've never fired it that way so I have no idea about that. Keep in mind that the p01 is a lighter alloy frame and all the weight is in the slide. Putting a heavier slide is just going to increase the weight of the part that moves during firing which I would guess is not going to soak up the recoil like you are thinking.

Hey boys and girls I got a quick question for ya. I picked up a CZ75B back in December, and I am perfectly happy with it. But now I hear this talk about getting it tuned up as far as the trigger goes. Are there any trigger kits you guys would recommend, or is this something I should let a professional take care of?

Let angus hobdells shop do the work for you at czcustom.com . You can do the SAO conversion below that IunusBrutus is talking about but it is not recommended as it is simply a sao conversion. You can get better results by installing a changing mainsprings, installing competition hammer, removing fpb and after that is done, then polishing everything to get it nice and light and crisp. Very few gunsmiths work on CZ. Most local gun store smiths will not even work on cz's. You can work on it yourself but you run the chance of screwing yourself over if you ever decide to get any other work done as you might take off too much metal after a homebrew trigger job.

You get an all steel gun which you can either go nuts with the upgrades as a range toy or you can leave it on the bedside table or even carry it down the road if you decide you want to. It may not shoot as comfortably as a fullsize pistol, but it seems to be another option that should fit your needs. Some CZ pistols are used by other countries police if that matters.

MidwayUSA Competition. I'm up for any alternatives as long as they don't intend to rape my wallet.
This one come with two zippered pistol rugs that are square in shape that you can throw into another small gym bag if you really want to keep stuff separate. I would honestly just wait a bit till the black one goes on sale for 404 and buy that. It is the best range bag I have ever used and everyone at my local idpa match shows up with it. I just keep the bag loaded with stuff and then throw whatever pistols I want into the rug and throw it in before heading out. The bag is big enough that you can fit a ton of stuff for range use.

I find mine becoming too heavy to carry before I run out of place to put more stuff. I've carried around 500rnds of 5.45, 300 of 9mm, two bulk packs of .22lr, 50rnds of 12ga, 3 pistols, 8 ak mags, 7 bdm .22lr mags, 5 pistol mags, cleaning kits and a couple of other items. You show up at the range, zip open the top and just work out of it. No need to pull stuff out to get to something in the bottom, plenty of compartments that you can keep everything separated out and you can throw everything back into the main compartment, zip up and leave when you are done shooting and just want to get back home. No need to even repack stuff once you go through your ammo. The bag is huge and yet not so big it is unwieldy.

So yeah, buy this bag for 40$ when it is on sale (or buy the green one right now if you don't care about colour) and then after using it along with the included pistol rugs decide if you want to drop some coin on hard shell pistol cases.

Related, what's a good case for one or two rifles that doesn't scream HEY GUYS CHECK IT I'VE GOT A GUN!!!

I've been using an old bass case, but it's pretty small for anything without a folding stock.

Go to a golf store. They make these soft sided golf bags that are made for travel. I found a really cheap one in a thrift store and have been using that. Anyone who knows me can tell you that it is pretty inconspicuous and travels comfortably with up to 5 rifles. 3 is where it gets heavy when you are walking with it and your range bag. If you drive you can easily handle 5 if you have to carry it short distances. Don't buy the cases with any sort of padding inside though. Stick with the cheap ones with handles and a waterproof outer layer. Use individual gun cases for the rifles before slipping them inside. This works for rifles as long as a k11. It doesn't work so well for 28" barreled shotguns.

A few years back, I used your advice on this on my P6 -- but I'm not sure I did it right. I covered the entirety of the visible portion of the front sight, and ever since I have felt somewhat "unsure" that I am aligning my sights properly on the vertical axis.

Why unsure? You shouldn't need a dot. As long as the top of your painted front sight post aligns with the top of the cutout in the black rear sight you are good to go. When you have time you make sure that the top of the front sight post is centered and level in the notch in the rear sight. When you are rushing you make sure the dots line up and the front is in the middle of the rear two rather than doing all that. Painting the front sight different helps with this.

It's a restoration job...I'm not sure how bad the condition of the shotgun is, but I'd say if it's a 30 dollar crap shotgun I wouldn't want to spend much money getting it restored.

"Buckeye: Trade name used by the Supplee - Biddle Hardware Company of Philadelphia on firearms they retailed.
S-B probably also distributed to smaller hardware stores and the Lynchburg address may have been added for a store in that city. If you break the gun down and look over the flat metal surfaces beneath the barrel and on the bottom of the barrel you may find an oval around ELG*. This would indicate manufacture (at least the barrels) in Belgium. It may also be a product of Crescent Firearms, W.H.Davenport, Iver Johnson, or other US manufacturers - whoever had the low bid for that order. It was most likely made sometime near 1900, but it would be impossible to give an exact date. If Belgian proofed, probably between 1885 and 1914. It could have been made as late as 1950 if it is an Iver Johnson."

Does anyone have any experience in dealing with kygunco.com? They have a 10/22 for $275 + Shipping which seems to be about the most reasonable I can find. Does that sound like a reasonable price to pay for a 10/22?

It's average. Budsgunshop has it for cheaper.
