View Full Version : Long time Glocker purchased my first CZ

I've been shooting primarily Glocks since I purchased my first G23 in 1998. I recently was looing for something different just out of curiosity. I looked at the HK P30L, S&W M&P, FN, etc. I ended up purchasing a CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical in 9mm. The CZ feels great in the hand, and the model I got has the decocker instead of the safety. This was one of the few guns that pointed well for me, most have a different angle from Glock and I end up pointing them too high. I gave it a good cleaning, cycled the slide by hand about 200 times, then cleaned it again before taking it to the range. The first time out was yesterday, I ran 250 rounds through it without a hickup. I was impressed with the accuracy, I shot as well or slightly better than I do with my Glock 34. I liked the SA/DA setup, neither was too long or gritty like the reviews suggested. I did notice the extra weight of the all steel gun, but that translated to almost no recoil.

I am now interested in adding a CZ P-07 Duty to my collection. I'm not going to give up Glocks or anything silly, but I do want to train on multiple platforms.

Congrats on your new CZ. You may want to try the phantom. It's a polymer SP-01.

Glad to hear a "Glocker" give a CZ a fair trial.The majority of pure "Glockers" tend to freak over the DA pull of ANY da/sa gun.

I own and carry plenty of Glocks but find CZ's to be excellent guns. I own a CZ75 Stainless Limited and it is a sweet shooter. Shoot it much better than the Glock but end up carrying a G19 because of the weight. Loaded G19 weighs the same as empty CZ.

I have no complaints about the DA pull on the CZ. Although I own over a dozen Glocks, I have a couple of S&W revolvers, a couple of Kahr's, and my dad always shot Sig.

After running another 150 rounds through my new 75 last night, I picked up another CZ. This one is a CZ P-07 Duty in 9mm. I was impressed with the design and feel of the pistol, and the Omega design SA/DA trigger felt very good. Unfortunately the parts to convert the safety to a decocker were not in the box when I got home, so I'll have a review of CZ's customer service (which I read is very good).

CZ customer service was very good. I sent them an e-mail about the missing decocker parts, they responded asking for my serial number, and my parts arrived today. I wish all companies had that kind of CS.

Yes, I've shot mostly Glocks for the past 15 years, recently I have purchased two CZ pistols. Rereading the title, I need to add a comma so it reads "Long time Glocker, purchased my first CZ".

Funny thing. My full sized 75 had the Omega trigger and I don't like it as well as the original in my 75c. Between the slightly flatter front strap and the Omega trigger it just doesn't "work" as well for me.

Just busting your balls. The cz is a fantastic pistol. Congrats on the buy.

Won't be long until you are selling Glocks to buy better guns. I don't own any Glocks anymore.

I might thin the herd of some .40 S&W models I don't shoot as much anymore in favor of more 9mm, but I doubt I'll be deglocking myself anytime soon.

Put some Cajun Gun Works parts into a 75B and you'll be amazed at the improved trigger. Much "crisper" with no cam-over.

I really like GLOCK pistols and own several. Really great sidearms. My 34 and 29 are favorites! My department issues me a Gen 3 G22 with a LaserMax guide rod in it and the department gives me all the .40S&W ammo I could possibly want including 180-gr HSTs. I could do the backstroke in all the 180-gr HSTs I have. Yet that G22 just sits at home nestled inside the box it came in and never gets carried.

I carry steel guns most of the time, including on occasion a matte stainless 75B.

I'm a fan of the CZ family of guns!

Congrats on the new CZ, they are awesome guns. Sounds like it is a great fit for you.

I have had my eye on a Shadow model for quite a while, but just can't shoot a DA/SA well enough to make it worth it for me for IDPA/IPSC. I haven't found anything yet that is faster for me than the G34.

I just purchased my third Cz Wednesday. I originally went to the GS to buy ammo and look at the madness going on and came home with a PO-1. I took it to the range yesterday along with my only glock (G26). Now even though I'm not a big fan of glock pistols I do shoot it very well or at least as these old wyes will let me.:rofl:Those CZ's though are just so nice that I shoot them better then any other pistol I own.
I put another 30 flawless rounds through the 26 and 100+ flawless rounds through the PO-1. I just love the feel of all steel/alloy CZ pistols. I would not be suprised to hear one day that some of those Glocks were sold to buy a few more CZ's. It's been know to happen in the past. Congrats on buying a great pistol.

Shocking that people own more than one brand isn't it?

You had better get busy, there are a whole lot of clubs here for other guns, you had better start questioning all of them.

I think I would stater with "Tactical Shotguns" since Glock doesn't make those and then move up to the 1911 folks.

I understand those who still have Glocks and other brands utilizing the site and the other forums, but frequently I run across people like b.reid and Cambo who claim they no longer own any Glocks but still post here.

I don't own any Glocks. I had 6 - G17C, G17L, G19, G22, G24 and G34. I had vicious thumb pain in my right hand and I thought it was from my job. On a whim, I decided to exclusively shoot my CZs for a couple of months. My thumb pain went away(I was still working by the way). I went back to shooting my Glocks and the thumb pain returned. The reason? The frame was too wide and I had to force my right thumb into it to get a good grip. When recoil occurred, it would hammer into my thumb joint. It turns out, after posting about it on GT, I wasn't the only one to have that problem. My Glocks were great guns in many respects, never a jam between them. I won't shoot something though, that is uncomfortable or is injuring me. Does that clear it up for you? Or will you still assume I own Glocks because I am a member here. Next you'll go after Okie, who only owns 1911s.

You will probably be buying one or three more soon. Congrats. A CZ 75B with a manual safety is the most accurate and fun pistol I have ever had. Throw in a Kadet kit and the fun factor went through the roof.

I'll stick with the decocker models, I don't care for manual safeties. Their P-09 Duty looks very interesting, I will probably pick one up when they are available.

I went from a G17 for daily carry to a CZ P-07 Duty in 9mm. It is a fabulous gun for the money, lock-stock reliable and accurate. I love the feel of this weapon.

I work in a dusty woodshop and carried my newly-purchased piece daily, allowing it to get dusted up and then took it to the range and ran it flawlessly. I feel very comfortable with this on my hip and with its reliability.

Congrats on your CZ puchases, albeit a bit late. i am keeping my G17, but the P-07 is my first choice for EDC.

I am still waiting for the release of the P-09 duty. With all of the silliness going on I don't know if they will arrive anytime soon. I did pick up a G20 Gen 4 though.

I just bought the P-07 tactical (threaded barrel and higher sights to accommodate a suppressor). Excited to test her out and eventually get her suppressed.

Added to the family of SP-01 tactical, P-01, and 75B-SA/Kadet (threaded and suppressed by Gemtech)

Bought my CZ 75 SP 01 last year, 300 rounds through, the gun is a beast. If I didn't need the money for another project I wouldn't sell it but it will be probably be a friend's gain.

The 75 platform is in many parts of the world what the 1911 platform is here in the USA. I've not owned a bad CZ product. Their rifles are scary accuate strait out of the box.
