This will be my first 9mm semi-auto. It will be used mainly for target/range shooting. I've had a chance to shoot a few rounds with a 75B Stainless Steel. It felt very comfortable. I have not handled an 85B. Any advantages/disadvantages to either model? My understanding is that the 85B is an upgraded version? BTW, does anyone know if the 75B in SS Matte is still made available? Thanks.

Mainly ambidextrous safety/decocker and slide release.
Also, the combat version has a different trigger that has adjustable reset.
Other than that it is the same as a 75B.

You can get the non-B version without the firing pin block...a bit nicer trigger.

If you are a lefty, get the 85.

Or if you want the combat trigger, the the 85B combat.

I recommend the Cz custom shop (Ghost products)

There is no more accurate 9mm that I have found.

Avoid Wolf Ammo and similar steel cased, matte finished ammo and Aguila.

It will shoot anything else.

If you want a tac rail, get the SP-01.

You will not regret a Cz purchase...better than Sig IMHO.

Are you saying that the safety on the 75B and 85B actually functions as a "de-cocker"? I'm asking because I like the "de-cocker" feature - as in the model 75BD, but that model is not available in stainless which would be ideal. But if the 75B safety "de-cocks", then I'll go for that one in stainless.

The 75B/85B safety DOES NOT decock the pistol. It is a safety only. You can decock a non-BD safely with practice. Unless specified, the new gen pistols, ie: "B" have a firing pin block, hence the "B" in the designation,
