Which CZ handgun is the CZ handgun. I read through dannyR's thread and most recommended the CZ 75 SP-01 w/ the 1913 rail.

But what CZ is the handgun to own. Not for carry, but for range/home use.

The 75B?

Thanks everyone. I'm new to CZs as well. :wavey:

If I could only have one and it was for range use only, it would be a Custom shop Shadow.

Hi,

I really like the CZ SP-01 9mm Tactical. All steel with a full length dust cover:

You can also get this in a standard safety model, the decocker model is pictured.

Good luck,

Alan

Scout your about to get into something terribly contagious, the Custom Shop ran by Angus Hobdel is some custom CZ's or a standard CZ and have which ever additions you want/need i.e. trigger job. I have most of the CZ's but not a polymer. The 75 SP-01 is the most accurate 9mm i own other than the Champion which is no longer imported(bummer a great CZ). Good Luck, the the 97B or BD is a big gun but a very good .45 All are good IMHO...:cool::wavey:

A 75B SA - excellent trigger, ergonomics, capacity, recoil control; no useless long, heavy DA pull. You don't need to spend money to make it any better.

CZ Custom now carries a Shadow without a rail. Either Shadow's (rail or non-rail) would be ideal.

75B is the quintessential CZ, IMO. I like the P-01 best though. I'd love to have one done up by the Custom Shop. Didn't know they had one until this post.

I would say the Pre-B would be the one to have over the 75b, but I would stll prefer the Shadow. Pre-b is the bottom gun

I recieve my Pre-B tomorrow back from CZ Custom. I had the springs replaced and had them go over it to ensure everything was good to go.

You will love it. The pre-b was my first CZ. I have had a matte stainless 75b, a satin nickel 75b, a SP-01, a SP-01 Tactical, a 75sa, a75c, a PCR, a P-06, and a P-01 since. I have dwindled the collection down to just four and the pre-b will always stay.
By the way, if you have trouble finding mags for your pre-b, the SP-01 mags work just fine in them.

I'm not saying its the best CZ, but the standard 75B is the quintessential model, in my opinion.

That model alone had a huge part in making CZ what it is today.

If you want to try a CZ on the cheap look into one of these CZ 82's great gun at a good price. May not be the quintessential CZ but a very good gun.

I've had all different models with the exception of the Shadow. My favorite is my first, a blued 75B, which I still have. I now have a Semicompact, Pre-B, Kadet, and the one I mentioned.

Have you fired one before? Try to shoot one your local members guns before you settle on a certain model.

No. I haven't shot a CZ before. I will try and track one down to shoot though. Which can be tough around my area. No ranges rent guns around here and I don't know anyone here that owns a CZ.

My 75 SA in 40S&W Competition hammer,Adj. trigger, FPB removed. Got to have the thin Aluminum grips with skateboard tape. Perfect range gun.
Just don't pick up the Glock 40 cases off the ground to reload. HA

These are all great suggestions.

My "classic" CZ platform is the CZ 85 Combat, which is a 75b with ambi controls, adjustable sights, and no hammer block. This makes it easier to tune the trigger.

I sent my 85 C to CZ Custom (Angus Hobdell) for an action job a few years ago. The single action trigger now compares to the best single action of a tuned SW revolver. The double action is long but very smooth.

The 85c is quite accurate and extremely reliable. The full steel frame absorbs recoil very well and the ergonomics make it a pleasure to shoot, provided the shooter doesn't have small hands.

I hope to try newer CZ 9mms soon, but the 75 / 85 is a classic for many reasons.
