Screw the gun, tell me about that lighter. Because from here that looks like an official Zippo lighter with Gunsmith Cats art. I assume those are long out of production?

I decided that I no longer needed to have two 10/22's, so I sold one to my dealer for the same price I bought it for 4 years ago, and picked up my SP-01.

All I can say is gently caress you all for not forcing me to buy one of these loving things earlier. It inst even funny how awesome these pistols are. It makes steel disappear

“Ignorance breeds monsters to fill up the vacancies of the soul that are unoccupied by the verities of knowledge”-Horrace Mann

After letting him shoot my CZ 75BD, with and without the kadet kit, I have succeeded in turning one of my friends on to CZs. As he doesn't currently have a full sized pistol (sold a P38 and his kimber in .45 to buy a ring for his fiancee)he is looking into getting something full sized in the 75 line. However, he has also been playing around with the idea of a RAMI. I know most of the full sized and compacts are good guns and that the polymer ones aren't as well received, but I know nothing about the RAMI. Does anyone own or have credible reports of how the gun shoots and feels?

SP-01 holster choices for competition? I know bladetech makes one and double alpha makes one, but is that it? I like how the double alpha one looks and the fact that it is suede lined so it wont gently caress up the finish like both my 1911s have.

No range reports, but I occassionaly get the urge to buy one, which lasts until I pick it up. It doesn't feel bad at all, but the height/length of CZs never bothered me, just the thickness, and the 2075 is probably as thick as the compacts/full-size. Tell him to just get a compact, which is fun to shoot in its own right, in addition to being a good carry gun (plus, he'll probably have an easier time with holsters).

Saw this on the CZ-USA website, too, for those of us who live in states that value your hearing: http://shop.cz-usa.com/P-00203/Cz-4...r-Threaded.aspx

I want a full size CZ75, and am torn between the SP-01 (not shadow or phantom) and a CZ75 SA. I know SP01s are cool, but has anyone shot a SA only CZ? How is the trigger pull?

Are there any other trigger options for decocker CZ-75s aside from the combat trigger? It came with the recurve trigger, which pinched my finger. I swapped it out for a CZ-85 Combat trigger which isn't as aggressively curved. It also pinches the bottom of my finger. The straight match trigger looks fantastic for my purposes, but it's for safety models only.

Bumping this thread with a video I made today:

video decription posted:

Testing the DPM recoil reducing guide rod and spring for the CZ 75 SP01. The gun with the wooden grips has the fancy DPM spring system and the one with black grips has stock rod and spring.

Conclusion is that you can feel a slight recoil reduction. Not worth the money imho but whatever, toys are always nice!

Are their centerfire rifles as well regarded? I love classic looking wood-stocked rifles.

They're great rifles, Not cheap by any means, but it helps if you're in the market for something with irons in this day and age.

Yeah, I might be going hunting for the first time this year (deer) and I'd love to do it with irons. It just suits me more.

Plus, every gun I buy I buy with the intention of passing on to my kids one day (whenever I have kids that is) and they seem really nice.

I'll have to do some research.

My local shop has a pretty rough looking 83 in 9x18 for sale, I'd say it's in 60% condition and one of the grip panels is loose but it's got a good bore and it seems pretty tight mechanically. They want $260 for it, how far off is that price wise?

CDNN Investments has had 9x18 CZ-82s forever starting at $150 for "average" condition, up to I think $170 for "excellent." I got an "average" one and it's in great shape, apart from some of the finish being chipped off.

Reminds me of the beat-up late war Nagant revolver I saw at my local shop for like $350.

My friend is about to graduate and become a cop here and had originally went with a CZ for his firearm. He got so much pressure from above that he eventually sold it and went with the Glock they have a special deal with. He was pretty bummed, but me even more that I didn't get to shoot/see it.

But he isn't complaining too much with the replacement, either. Some bullshit right there.

Whoops, I meant 82, not 83 and that's the same issue this one has, chipped up finish. drat it anyway. I really want one they're just cool little guns but that sounds a tad overpriced. I guess that's what happens when you've near zero competition. Guess I'll try the gun show again instead.

Help me spend my money TFR!

I want need a full-size 9mm pistol. It's mostly between the various CZ types, but I just can't make up my drat mind!

As such, anyone who has shot any of these and can offer their input, please speak up!

Option 1: CZ85 Combat.
+ No firing pin block, so smoother trigger, right?
+ Better sights
+ Drop-free magazine well
- I have heard mixed reports on how much the FPB actually matters.
- More expensive
- Ambi-slide release and safety will just make it more difficult to find holsters
- Have heard reports of slide stop breakages on 85s

Option 2: CZ75B SAO
+ Single action triggers on these are supposedly quite nice
+ Drop-free magazine well
+ Not much more expensive than a standard 75, and I save money on not having to do a SAO conversion later
- Bumps me to ESP only for IDPA

Option 3: CZ75B
+ Cheapest option; used ones pop up frequently, too.
+ Easiest to located holsters and gear for.
- Requires another $80 if I decide I want an SAO gun.

Option 4: CZ75B Compact (steel frame)
+ Technically a compact, but steel frame to help it shoot a little nicer than my PCR
+ I can use all of the same magazines, holsters, and gear as my carry weapon
+ Same controls (essentially) and ergonomics as my carry weapon
- The compact grip fits my hand perfectly, but still a shorter barrel and lower weight, which is what I'm trying to avoid.

Option 5: Hi-Power or clone
+ Trigger beats snot out of CZ trigger
+ Easier and cheaper to do trigger job on, further increasing awesome level
- Either spend $$$$ for a modern one, or buy an older one and have the slide machined for novaks
- Grip isn't quite as comfortable
- ESP only

Thoughts, TFR? Any of the above will get a trigger job and new sights, likely. The CZ also has the advantage of having great (if expensive) .22 kits available, while the Hi-Power has dubious looking Ceiner kits. Also, I know SP01 Shadows rock so hard, but I'll go way over $1000 on one of those, and that's just too much for me - I'll be able to keep my initial purchase under $600 this way, and can break it in a bit, before getting the trigger worked on.

I vote SAO, I converted my 75B to SAO, installed a comp hammer, and yoinked the FPS. The trigger is ridiculously nice now, like 1911 nice. Unfortunately, I think you have to leave the FPS in for IDPA since it came with one. As far as the FPS is concerned, it really only makes sense to pull it if you have a trigger with pretravel adjustment because then you can cut it down to pretty much nothing and have a really short reset. I think the SAO also has the ledge safety and beavertail as well.

I had a similar dilemma and decided to go for the 85 combat and swap the sights and hammer for the CZ Custom offerings.
