How long have these been out?
I was searching for something else on gunbroker and stumbles across yet another CZ 75 Copy.Anyone have or used a Armalite Ar-24 .
I googled it and came up with this acticle:
It's an interesting read...I was also suprized to learn that the CZ 75 was designed from many features of the Sig P210 (I did not know that)...Now I have to get me a Sig P210.Other than the 1911,the CZ, and I guess SIG, is one of my favorite frame designs .
I have to go do more research now.....
It looks like the AR-24 is going for roughly $500-$600 on GB (Pretty inexpensive for being machined from solid blocks of hammer forged alloy steel)
All-righty-then..........No Sig P210 for Me.$3000 and up is just a bit out of my budget.
I would think that $600 is a lot to pay for a CZ clone, especially since one can get the real thing for less. My CZ85 Combat (duo-tone) ran a bit over $500 new, and there are many CZ75's that run even less.

The AR24 has been out for about two years, I believe. Like PhilR., I see no point in spending $600 for one when I can have a genuine and excellent CZ75B for considerably less.

So the actual CZ75b is the better weapon? That arcticle made it sound like the Cz's were made cheaper (Cast instead of milled billet).
I do like the looks of the CZ better...the Ar-24 looks a bit unrefined, Imo.
I just never noticed the Ar-24 existed when I was looking at CZ type pistols.I eventually decided on the IMI/IWI Baby Desert Eagle and I'm happy with that choice.
That's what these forums are for...to keep everyone looking in the right direction.
I'm not 100% sure, but I seem to recall that the Armalite is made in Turkey. While the Turkish make some excellent firearms, I still don't think that the factory that makes the Armalites will match what the older and *much* more experienced CZ factory can make. Kinda like Hyundai vs. Toyota. A Hyundai isn't as good as a Toyota, but then again it's not as pricey as a Toyota either. An Armalite would be worth it if it cost less than a CZ, but if it costs the same, I'm going w/CZ.
In case you're interested, my CZ85 Combat is probably the most accurate 9mm I own, and I own some pretty decent 9mm pistols. I think that it's the most accurate because of a combination of longer barrel/sightline, excellent ergonomics, and quality build. It fits my hand better than any other non-match handgun I own, and the odd thing is, even my much smaller wife finds it fits quite well too. You can check out my CZ in the pic below. It is in the upper right corner....
