I love the design of the CZ75, 85, SP01, 452, 550, etc., but how is their quality control these days?

I have 5 CZ handguns, 3 made in the last 5 years and the newest is about 2 1/2. They are still doing a fine job although i don't like the "Painted" finishes. The nickled one i have is great. The only problem I have ever has was my 75 with the "Omega" trigger. the trigger spring snapped at about 125 rds. according to what I have read it was a common problem. CZ fixed it in a heartbeat though and it's had three years on it with no more problems.

Great. Any problem I've had has been fixed quickly and with no charge. Love the guns.

4 CZs and all are reliable, no problems.

I have the P-01.
Tight, reliable, accurate, very comfortable in the hands and I do like the paint job.

I actually don't mind the painted finishes - they are TOUGH!

I have had "problems" with CZ slides nit being machined properly - that was circa 2008. CZ was machinine the grasping grooves into the slide rails - yuck! I hope they have that permanently fixed, but I'm still hesitant on another purchase...

I have two PCRs. Bought second, because I liked first one so much. About 2-3 thousand rounds thru initial PCR and never a jam. Single action trigger pulls are creepy on both however. Use does smooth out a bit, but just a bit. Dry firing with snap caps helps.

I am fairly confident that mecgar mags are the same as factory mags except for marking on one side of mecgar mags. This is good as mecgar mags can be bought for about $20 each and CZ mags can be quite a bit more.

Overall very high quality pistols in my opinion with a lot going for them. Unfortunately, not a lot of aftermarket sights.

Great guys to buy CZ products from. Naturally, you have to have a reasonable and reliable FFL to accept shipment.

THanks for the tip jack76590! I'll have to check them out. It's not that I don't appreciate CZ's - I have nine handguns and three rifles, but the spotty QC has me wanting to thoroughly inspect everything first, and there isn't a lot available locally.

I've got two CZ's One 2011 75b and recently bought 1987 CZ 82. Both have been very fine pistols.

CZ's quality control is very good.

I just picked up a CZ 75B Omega, I was going to get the basic 75B but Buds got a shippment of Omegas. The Omega comes with 3 mags and Meprolight night sights, I will be picking it up in a couple weeks, cant wait. I have almost completed my 9mm non railed collection, still saving for a Browning Hi Power, and although I hate Glocks with a passion, I would like a Gen 1 model 17.

I've owned more than a dozen CZ 75 fullsize and compact 9's, a couple of Ramis and two Kadet .22's. They were all manufactured at various times over the past decade or so; finishes were variously blue, bright stainless, matte stainless, nickel, and Polycoat. Every one of them functioned flawlessly and had impeccable finishes. While the rails were a little rough, that had no effect on function (or on obvious aesthetics, since the rails are internal).

Prior to that I collected postwar S&W revolvers and found them to be much more erratic in finish, machining and reliability.

I almost bought the regular 75B in a Blue finish, it was a tough choice, but the Omega the Omega won due to the Night Sights and 3 magazines. If Buds still has the blued finish 75Bs after the first of the year I will probably pick one up.
