View Full Version : Cz75bd?

I was online last night at a popular online gun shop and was purchasing two forearms. I placed one in my cart and then the CZ75B. Screen locked up and I had to hit the back button. The BUY NOW button changed to VIP Only. Then within two minutes it went out of stock. This site still has the CZ75BD version in stock but I know NOTHING about the decocker. I am not using this as a carry pistol, rather target and/or home defense if the SHTF. Thoughts on the BD model would be appreciated.

Two of my CZ's are decockers, I like 'em. :cool:

I don't like the DA pull on CZ's - too long and heavy, so all of mine are SAO or of the cocked and locked variety. I'd never buy a decock model.

Mine are great, and I like having the DA first shot capabilty if I want it.

I've had my BD for about 8 years. The decocker is one of the best designs I've seen on a handgun. Not a big fan of safeties so it suits my needs.

I plan at some point to get a 97BD as well.

After about 3k rounds through mine, the DA has smoothed very nicely. I also like the decock vs a full-on safety.

I will also add, a 16# hammer spring will still ignite primers reliably and lighten the first pull DA quite a bit.

I love my BD... .Sorry for the horrible pic. I consider the 75BD, the "steal" of my collection. $300 after shipping and FFL fees, then I got a spring kit for it cuz I felt the recoil spring was junk, and a pair of Hogue rubber grips on it... so I've got about $335-$340 in the gun, and it shoots like a dream. (Sorry my picture taking skills suck so badly, this is a pretty old pic)

I have both a 75BD and a P01. I am left handed so I love the decocker. After about 500 rounds the trigger will smooth in very well. Keep in mind the decocker goes to half cock so the DA pull is not that bad.
