      Go shoot them both. I guarantee you will pick the CZ. By the way, it's not lesser in anyway.

      CZ 75 SP-01 with night sights - $660
      tell me why some say that they are 'lesser weapons'. They seem to be 'right up there' when you are looking at the numbers. Prices are the same. Reports of durability are just as good. Reports of accuracy are just as good. What's the deal?


      I have never seen a Sig handgun in person so for me, they are off the list as an option. Again...not to say they are not awesome but I am not going to buy something that I have no experience with and none of my trusted advisers have experience with.
      Couple things. Do they seriously want that much for a SIG 250? I would think street prices below $500 wouldn't be a stretch. Also, I compare the CZ75 family to the P226 & P229 ($800+). Yeah, it's a fair comparison. The P250 never occurred to me. But then I hate the concept of DAO, I don't care how "good" it is for a DAO trigger. I'm not on the police force in a liberal city, I want a proper trigger setup. Oh, FYI, the P250 is a polymer frame.

      Like I said....I don't know anything about a Sig...they are not popular in my 'crowd.' LOL I dont' think there is even a dealer around there.

      And yes, that is MSRP on all of those from all of their web sights.

      Not yet, waiting for Uncle Sam to work my refund down the line to me.....

      I am trying to get out to a shop in Tallahassee that deals CZ's and at least hold a couple though I can't shoot them and make sure I like the fit in my hand before I nail down a model.

      I am hoping that whatever model I pick I will be able to order wholesale through my business and save a buck or two. The last one I ordered for another guy at the shop...it was an XD....I think it came in at $459 after shipping and all, new.

      I don't think they carry it at our 'hook up' though...

      My first gun was a Stainless Browning Hi-Power. I loved how accurate and nice looking it was. I just bought a Sig SP2022 for $499 after much research to find something that was a great value & in the 2022 I think I found it. That being said my next gun will most likely be a CZ 75B in Stainless or maybe a compact, or a Bersa Thunder .45 UPC. They both seem to be held in good regard by those who own one and are a great value for the money. The CZ being somwhat of a copy of the Hi-Power should be a really nice piece.

      I have a CZ85B. Excellent pistol. It was a little balky for the first 200 rounds, but now it shoots anything. I went with the CZ85B because I'm a lefty and the 85B has ambi controls.

      CZ has been the weapon of choice for many Iron Curtain countries for a long time, and the only thing holding back sales in the U.S. is the fact that they are sometimes hard to find.

      You will not be making a mistake with a CZ, probably one of the most underrated pistols in the marketplace. Check out The Original CZ Forum - Index, a great bunch of people, or CZ Custom Shop, home to Angus Hobdell, one of the top shooters in the world.

      This thread led to my purchase of a CZ 75BD Police model.



      Very happy with my purchase, a solid addition to my Berettas & Sigs.

      That one looks nice, when i got mine there were a few things i picked that i liked from the other guns i have.

      I wanted an all metal gun no polymer frame
      i wanted a hammer
      I wanted a metal trigger
      i wanted grips i could change to my own or when i wanted.
      I wanted a rail for a laser or a light or for a red dot thing.

      The SP01 had everything i wanted plus i liked the feel of it. Its heavy but has almost no kick

      I want a full size or a compact, not a sub...that is for sure. I am leaning more to a full size. I have no intent to carry this piece.

      Tell me if I am thinking wrong about getting the 75 SP-01...it looks real good to me.
      I like what the CZ P-07 has to offer.

      I discovered the CZ line this year. Read numerous reviews on the guns on several sites. Walked into my local GS a few months ago and they had just put a 75 Compact in the display. When I put the gun in my hand I was SOLD. Best feeling handgun to me with the exception of a 1911. The gun shoots any ammo I put thru it and is the most accurate 9mm I have ever fired. No cycling problems. It has become my EDC. Very light recoil due to the weight, low bore axis and the fact that the slide rides on rails "inside" the frame. Dressed it up with some wood Cocabola grips it is a very sharp looking handgun. Now I'm saving up for their 9mm RAMI model. You will not go wrong with a CZ.

      I have had the please to own and shoot a fair number of guns in my 60 plus years. Currently only own three brands of handguns Sig, Rohrbaugh and CZ. Never found a poly gun that felt good in hand and even made the mistake of buying a very nice HK poly once. The only gun I will own that doesn't really feel good in hand is the Rohrbaugh R9 just because it fills a roll that is hard to exactly duplicate with the same level of quality.

      My first CZ was a Shadow bought in 08 for USPSA comp it has shot many thousand of rounds without any problems after shakedown, that were not the results of my less than perfect hand-loading. Big, heavy and just such a delight to shoot. Have a CZ Compact L on the way; much the same as a P0-1 or PCR that I expect nothing less from.

      I like my Sigs a lot. No other guns feel as good in my hands with the edge going to the CZs, they just feel right, look great IMO and shoot better than I am able to.

      From my experience not many are dissatisfied after handling, shooting or owning one. There are models to suit just about any need or desire except and the very small end.

      The CZ Rami would be a great carry gun, but I never see them around my area. I don't see a lot of CZ pistols period around here. Funny how certain parts of the country seem to have more of one brand and not much of another.

      Anything would be an improvement on Berettas and Sigs.

      I actually love the CZ75 and most of the clones of this gun. Tristar, EAA, SAR and others make decent clones of the CZ, but they aren't a CZ. Balance, fit and "shootability" is just awesome. One of my favorite guns I own.
