My CZ collection





The CZ 452 is always a hit when I bring it to the range with a group of people.

Anyone know if there is a way to futz around with the CZ-75B to make it lefty-friendly, or would I just be better off getting a CZ-85 instead? Seeing the 75B go for $490 for Holiday Sales at a local chain (Turner's), and it's drat tempting, seeing a steel-frame 9mm go for that cheap. Hopefully going to rent one this week or next.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm in CA.

Last time I checked, the 85 wasn't on the approved handgun roster so the only way you'll be able to get one is through a private sale, if you can find someone willing to sell theirs. Yes, I know it's just an ambidextrous version of the 75B (i.e., basically no major changes), and yes, the CA DOJ is retarded to say the least.

I would just get the 75B from Turner's and live with the non-ambidextrous controls, or if you're willing to pay more and if an ambidextrous safety is sufficient, there's the SP-01.

Yeah, that 75B Turner's is selling is still the cheapest steel-frame 9mm that I'd actually want. The other guns I'm looking at in that price range are a Glock 19 and M&P9, but I'm still trying to decide what the hell matters more to me: having a steel frame pistol I'll mostly be using as home D/range toy, or having something ambi-friendly (like the m&P9).

As for controls, hitting the mag release isn't what screws me up; it's making sure whether or not I can skirt the safety with my index finger when I draw as a lefty, which I had to do for a class(not a chance in hell when i try with a 1911-style pistol).

I'm a lefty too, and I can empathize. For the most part, I've resigned myself to using pistols with decockers, like the P-01, for HD. I suppose there's the option of dealing with a DA first pull if you get the 75B, though there's the risk of ND when you're manually decocking it.

However, it might be worth the extra $80-100 to get the SP-01 if you need the ambidextrous safety, plus it has rails.

Swapped out the Nills to oil them, and then ended up trying to put as much poo poo on my P-01 as possible, here's the outcome:



Those grips look pretty sweet. Too bad they're not for sale anywhere.
