    I'm picking up my new 9mm CZ 70B Stainless today. It's my first CZ. I always try to buy American when I can but I was looking for a 9mm for inexpensive target/range shooting and plinking, and a gun for my wife. All the positive comments I've read about the 70B and the very reasonable price swayed me to try a CZ. I'm really looking forward to picking it up and shooting it. Anyone have recommendations on compatible/good FMJ and JHP ammo? Thanks.

    I will admit that the fullsize 9mm's with the full dustcover/tac rail look kinda cool. I saw one at my local shop last week.

    If I ever got a CZ, it would probably be that one...

    I guess beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. I find the CZ 100 to be vomit-inducing hideous and the 75's to be quite attractive. I actually thought you guys were being sarcastic at first. I've considered getting a 75 but can never find good deals. I don't think that anyone can deny that the 92/96 series of Berettas aren't good-looking pistols either. Another thing I like about them is that "MADE IN USA" some of them sport on the slide.

    Go Used for a 75

    Used 75s are a reasonable investment. I picked up mine that way.

    The latest incarnation of the 75 with the full length dust cover is known as the SP 01. It's lines are almost exactly like those of the 75. Most of the changes are to the frame. It is forged instead of cast. It's the offspring of the CZ 75 flirting with the P 01.

    There have to be some small changes internally, though. My Kadet Kit functions flawlessly on a real 75 but the slide won't lock back on the Kadet Kit when installed on the SP 01. That's all that it won't do, though.

    The SP 01 also comes standard with a 19 round magazine but the same one will function fine in a 75.

    Now if they will just make a .40 SP 01!

    Plenty of SP 01 photos at the CZ-USA site.

    I can't take a pic of mine as it's at the gunsmith getting the action smoothed.

    I had that done on my 75 B and it was a VAST improvement.

    I really should take pics of my CZs but they are all pretty generic examples.

    I just paid my CZ loving friend for an old-style CZ 83 today. It has the rounded trigger guard, rather than the newer ones. I'll be picking it up from him tomorrow or Sunday.

    Does anyone know much about the CZ P-01's and where they're available from? I frequented many gun stores, none of them had it in and some didn't even know about it. At some point in the future I'm looking at getting either a 9mm or a .45. I've shot Sig and Springfield and liked them both, but am kinda curious about the P-01 http://www.cz-usa.com/product_detail.php?id=28

    Haven't seen any of the 750 sniper either http://www.cz-usa.com/product_detail.php?id=75

    Cheers...

    The full size CZ's feel better to me than any handgun I have picked up. The only gun that comes close is the Sig 226. I own a CZ SP 01 and have used it in IPSC and IDPA competitions. It makes a good competition gun because of its feel, accuracy and because it has a "cocked and locked" mode. In fact, I have had my best placements in competitions with this gun.

    Curiously, though, I do not think this gun is legal in IDPA competitions. The local club where I have competed probably didn't strictly enforce the rules.
    The gun is too heavy for the Stock Service Pistol category, has a full length dust cover eliminating it from the Enhanced Service Pistol category and it isn't a .45 and so it doesn't fit in the Custon Service Pistol category. I may have to confine its use to IPSC matches.

    There's probably not much to say since there isn't much to improve with CZ's.

    Most posts on forums tend to be about problems or ways to "improve" a gun, but CZ's don't need much improvement and have very few problems. I guess we could talk about all the CZ good points...

    I'd have to agree with you there. I've read a lot of positive things about CZ's, which just makes me want to try one out.

    I have had my CZ75B and CZ83 .380 for some time now. Along with my Taurus Model 66 revolver, they are the pistols I most frequently take to the range. I like the feel and accuracy of these firearms.
    Previous pistol was a Sig P226 ($650.00) I had for a couple of years and experienced infrequent jamming, misfeeds and stovepiping issues. It was a fine pistol, but not my cup of tea. I sold it and bought my CZ75B with $ left over. At the gun show last week, I noticed that the prices for CZ's have increased substantially since I got mine (2005).

    I have a CZ75 in 40 and also a 75BD in 9mm its a compact model...Both are fine weapons. My first, was at the behest of my dealer who when I ordered a SIG talked me into this or he would buy from me...when it came in, I would not part with it...I still have it and have had for a number of years...so when I wanted a 9mm I immediately got another CZ. My other guns are Walther PPKS, Bersa UC9, Les Baer Premier Custom Carry, and NightHawk Talon 2 Bob-Tail. Love them all...but the CZs were my first serious crunchentickers.

    A worked over 75B Stainless with tritium nites and Lasergrip.
    No sighting or gripping issues at all.

    One of the few guns I think that look BETTER with laser grips on them. Sweet!
