I went and looked at it again today. They've got two, but the newer one has a lot more wear and tear. The more I handle it, the more I like it.

They said they have a lot of 75 used pistols from an auction coming in tomorrow, but he's not sure what's in it. Since I'm off work, I'm gonna help 'em sort through it and see what's in the mystery crate o' pistols. After that, I may go ahead and grab the DW if there's not anything else interesting there.

Its my favorite pistol caliber.

Second place would be 45ACP out of a 1911 and third is .357 from a nice big revolver.

The Official CZ-USA site lists all their pistol variants.

Another CZ85 question: Is the magazine release reversible? I can drop a magazine with my trigger finger if I have to, but I prefer to use my thumb. Why can't everyone use a USP/PPS-style magazine release? I know some people don't like them, but they're pretty awesome once you get used to them (which doesn't take long).

I went with the Combat and can't say I'm disappointed. The factory sights are nice on the B, but it wasn't a huge jump in price going with the Combat so I figured what the hell. I think the only major difference between the B and Combat is the safety. According to cz-usa's site, the B has a firing pin safety stop while the Combat has a hammer safety stop.

I don't believe the mag release is reversible, but honestly I have no problems dropping the mag with my middle or trigger fingers. The only thing that made me really want the 85 over the 75 was the safety. It's not like it's a big deal if you're using both hands to shoot, but it's nice to be able to work everything easily single handed.

Oh yeah, here's a pic of my 85 fresh out of the box. I should probably take some new pics now that it's all cleaned up and has a few hundred rounds through it.


Funny E/N story; I got my 85 at the suggestion of TFR, only to find out after my purchase that my gun nut uncle is also a hardcore CZ lover. He called me after he heard second hand through my dad and told me that's the same gun he would have suggested. He's got a 75B and and 85 Combat that he loves to use at the range.

I'm currently debating whether or not I want to go with a P07 for my carry gun. Anyone here tried/own a P07 that would like to weigh in with any lessons learned?

I have heard not impressive things about the P07. Honestly you are probably better served by the P01.

CZ75 SP-01 gets to stay at the gun shop for a few weeks. My kitty swallowed a sewing needle today and needed surgery. Good thing the guys at my local shop are cool as gently caress and will hold it for as long as I need.

I love my P-01 and I'm sure another few hundred rounds + incessant dry firing will fix this drat trigger. It's already better than it was.

The downside is after looking at the Shadow I really want one, even though it's pretty much just a larger P-01. drat you, CZ.

If anyone does one of those "poor man's trigger jobs" on a 452, test for full sear engagement before you go out. I fiddled with my 452FS with the middle spacer and spring in the kit and the sear would slip and fire the gun if jarred. And not by a lot, either. You can use the very scientific method of bonking a really, really unloaded cocked rifle down on a cushioned chair or something butt-first and seeing if it trips.

Sorry to disappoint, but it is just a 75B SP-01. Shoots like a dream, and the trigger is much lighter/smoother than a standard 75B. Considering that it was almost new and came with night sights, $450 seemed like a pretty good deal.

I love these guns, but I can't help thinking I won't be happy with how thin the slide is (vertically). Are you bothered by the relative lack of grip space to actuate the slide (say, compared to a 1911)?

I have never had a problem with this. I have not even though about it until I read your post.



Went shooting today and alternated between an USP and my CZ. The USP felt like a toy compared to the Shadow. Also I did not notice any problem racking the slide in my CZ compared to the USP.

The size of the slide is actuly one of my favorite parts about them - it makes it very easy to get a high, agressive grip on the gun without getting your fingers pinched. As for how hard it is to rack it...I have fairly large hands, and I've never had any issue with getting a hold of it.

During a traffic stop a cop pulled me out of my car and searched me without permission, found my pistol and carry permit. He did not know how to unload the weapon safely, repeatedly asking me where the "thing that goes back" was. He was visibly very upset when I offered to do it for him.

I later got a letter of apology from the Ross Township PD for the incident.

I felt the same way. Then I realized that most of the time I actually need to touch the slide, it's already locked back and the surface area is a nonissue. There IS a learning curve, but it's easy to get over.

Serves you right for owning a Military Combat Pistol

I finally got a tripod, so now I can fumble my way through taking some photographs. Here are a couple of police surplus CZ pistols. First is a CZ-70, which was basically a slightly updated CZ-50. Its magazine holds 8 rounds of the formidable .32 acp cartridge. Despite its all-steel construction, it's not very fun to shoot, as it has a truly abysmal trigger pull, even in single action. The trigger itself has helpful grooves that dig into your finger as it struggles through the twenty-pound pull, causing you to question whether or not you actually want to fire it at all. I may be exaggerating slightly, but it really does have a terrible trigger. The grips are also somewhat uncomfortable and the direct blowback action gives it some snappy recoil.



Next is a CZ-83, also chambered in .32 acp. This is a rare chambering for this pistol, as the vast majority of CZ-83s imported are chambered in .380, while the milsurp CZ-82s are chambered in 9x18 Makarov. Its magazine capacity is 15 rounds (the .380 and 9mm Makarov magazines hold 12 rounds). Unlike its predecessor, this pistol has an amazing trigger in either single- or double-action, very comfortable grips, and large ambidextrous controls. The only drawbacks are lack of a decocker and a slightly wide grip profile due to the double-stack magazine.



I'd definitely recommend getting a CZ-82 or 83. Lots of po-surp 83s in .380 have been imported recently, and they don't cost much more than the milsurp 82s. Sadly, they are not C&R eligible like their martial brethren.
