I have been thinking on a metal-framed pistol for IDPA, and whatever else I may decide to get into. I want it in 9mm, obviously mag capacity must be 10+, and it's gotta fit in "the box". The CZ 85 Combat is pretty BA, and I'm thinking of setting my firearms fund targets on it. However, the SA only aspect of the CZ75 B SA is awesome, for target/comp shooting, but I'm a lefty.

Is it relativly possible to convert the CZ 85 Combat to an SA trigger? I've read around people convert their 75Bs to SA only, is the trigger/hammer different on the 85?

Now before anyone says get a BHP, I like the internal railing of the CZ, and they just cycle smoother to me. Plus it's a better looking gun, and that's what we're really about :smoking:

Alas, what's a post good for, without some porn? By the way, none of these are mine, just inspiring.

Yes, it is possible:

-If you want/need to get a 75B instead of an 85, you can always get an ambidextrous safety added. Also, the stainless steel 75's come with a factory-installed ambi.

-When shopping for your gun, be aware you can't install a SA trigger on a model that comes with a decocker instead of a safety.

What has me so intrigued about the 85 is I'm a lefty. That left side slide release is awesome. Do they have a conversion for the 75b to make the slide lock on the left, or is it a different slide?

Oh, I never realized it had an ambi slide stop also. Doesn't look like they're interchangeable, unless the custom shop could possibly do some modifications.

how hard is that trigger to install?

Well, like a 1911 or Hi Power, you'd have to worry about the sear, safety, and hammer engagement. Unless you have multiple guns you want to work on, I'd just send it in to CZ Custom rather than buying gunsmithing guides and the needed tools.

There is no need to convert your CZ 85 Combat to single action only.

Send it to Angus Hobdell at CZ Custom and have him install the newer hammer and do a complete single action / double action job. The double action trigger will be smooth and the single action trigger will be comparable to a good SW revolver.

Enjoy your 85 Combat.
