Anybody else have one of these ?
CZ40B .40 S&W
I bought it about 5 years ago - it's an '01 manufacture. It was supposedly the result of a joint venture between CZ and Colt - it's kind of like a cross between a CZ75 and a 1911.
I believe CZ made them until 2005, but I don't think in any great numbers.
It's a great gun and was pretty inexpensive.
The cat came back, the very next day...
I wound up buying my 40 B back.
After cursing the .40 S&W and wondering how in the name of Samuel Colt the round ever got popular I finally worked through my 40 caliber flinch.
I used to shoot my 40s at 25 feet and less and was embarassed at the huge, scattered, ragged arrangements of holes in the targets. I could shoot a 9. I could shoot a 45. The 40s were acting like I was someone who didn't shoot much.
This afternoon after buying my 40 B back from my friend I was shooting arrangements of that size or smaller.
At 50 feet.
I can shoot tighter with my Witness Stock but the trigger on that pistol is perfect. The trigger on the 40 B is stock and relatively unbroken in. Heavy, cranky and not a joy. But those rounds were puncturing the paper plate glued to cardboard 50 feet away. They all stayed in the plate.
I've learned that the 180 grain rounds are MUCH more pleasant to shoot than the 165s but both are controllable.
The 40 B came back to me and I'm happy to have her back. Her sister, the 40 P is at the gunsmith and when she comes back it's the 40 B's time to get an action job.
Why did I want this one back? I had the Witness Stock. I had the 96 Beretta. I had the 40 P and an XD SC in 40.
Because this pistol is beautiful. It feels different from the rest of the CZ sisters but it still feels RIGHT in the hand.
They friend whom I sold it to also loves how it feels, he just can't stand having a single pistol in 40 when everything else is 22 or 9mm.
My 40 B came home and I'm happy!
