Thinking of selling off some Glocks - CZ SP01 or BHP?

I have found the reason why I sometimes have thumb pain after shooting my Glocks - they don't fit my hand like my CZs. I am trying to decide between an SP01 or a Browning Hi Power. I have 15 round magazines that will work in the CZ(a NJ thing), but my first gun was a Hi Power and I would like to replace it. Thoughts?

The CZ is a great pistol, but the BHP is a true classic.

Its also my favorite 9mm.

Sounds like you already have some CZs, so why not add a BHP?

I have always thought the BHP looked nice, but that is stunning!

I owned both pistols. Both are good, but IMO CZ is better design. Personal preference mostly. If You are going to go with BHP prepare yourself to spend more at the counter and even more to make it shoot like CZ. Ergonomics are very nice on both of those pistols.

I hate Bac. But I love his guns. (and the lady who cleans his carpets...please tell me she is blonde, hot, and wears stockings and a short skirt while she cleans!)

CZ is fantastic - but compared to an awesome Browning? Seriously - no contest:

Mess with a BHP before you buy. The safety is small, flat, and not as easy to click off as a CZ safety. And I find CZ's much more comfortable in my hand - I had to place my trigger finger awkwardly on my BHP. (I have fairly long fingers, so maybe BHP's fit others better.

BHP all the way, the slide inside the frame CZ design is hard to grasp with sweaty hands, the BHP is a classic.............

Always wanted a BHP and am so glad to finally have picked one up for a good deal($500 OTD), of course my wife decided she liked it more and it now sits in her night stand.

I like the SP01 better. It holds more ammo 18+1, has better ergonomics, is double and single action, and comes standard with night sights.

The magazine disconnect on the BHP is a bummer. It can be disabled but I like my guns able to fire without a magazine out of the box.

I do love the High Power, but I love my SP01 way more!

Both can be purchased in 40 S&W as well.

I like both, but if I had to only chose one, it would be the SP-01.

I want a CZ-75 and wouldn't mind having a BHP, but I want it done up by Terry Tussey like this one...hardchromed with a chopped barrel.

Picked this up today from a member on a local board.
It's got a Ghost Inc CZ Customs trigger job by Angus Hobdell, over travel adjustment trigger, Meprolight night sights, VZ G-10 black desert sand grips, and a few other extras. Trigger pull in DAO and SA are ridiculously smooth and light. Feels amazing in your hand.

You must have one of the old BHPs with the tiny safety.

I bought an Israeli surplus BHP for $385, put Hogue grips on it. I like it so much I sold my CZ.

Three things to dislike about stock BHPs:
1. Triggering - you have to guess when the trigger resets, even after eliminating that dang mag safety.
2. Iron sights are not so easy to acquire quickly.
3. Safety is not so large.
Some people are more sensitive to hammer bite than others.

Things not to like about CZ75s in general:
1. Not much slide real estate for racking.
2. A tad heavy for what they do.

That said, I feel that the CZ75 is a more modern platform that has been amenable to customization in lots of directions. Either would make an excellent gun that will save your hide with extreme prejudice if required.

That said, I have never owned a BHP and still own two of the three CZ75s that I have bought. A P07 Duty replaced my G19, and a SP01 Phantom replaced my G17 for EDC purpose, respectively.
