View Full Version : Thinking about buying a CZ 75B. What are its competitors, and any tips on finding 1?

So I'm considering buying a CZ-75B as my first (and probably only automatic) handgun. But I want to check out some other options as well. I'm looking for a steel frame pistol in 9mm in roughly the same price range.

The Beretta 92 is the only other option that I can think of. I've not shot it but I'm willing to rent one to see how it shoots. But unless it just blows me away, I'd prefer to go with the CZ.

What are some other guns in that price range? Sig's is a little pricey for my taste.

Finally, does anybody have any advice in tracking one down? I'm in the Los Angeles area and none of the stores I've called have any in stock.

FWIW, I'm willing to take the CZ-75B, BD, or B-SA. I'm probably going to pick up the Kadet .22lr conversion kit somewhere down the line.

I came down to CZ vs. Beretta, tried them both, and CZ seemed clearly superior in operation and finish. I have had as many as six since then, now have two forever keepers.

Impactguns.com usually has some California models available.

Went CZ, ain't looking back.

CZ-75 blows away ANY Beretta.

I take mine in the BD or P-01 flavor.

But what about trying to find one? If I were to put a deposit somewhere, how should I choose what gun store to go through?

Thanks.

I'd like 9mm because of cost and I can share ammo w/ my brother's XD9. I'd also like a steel frame; those polymer framed pistols make me hand hurt (plus, I don't know if there's any truth to this, but I've heard the trigger on the polymer ones aren't as nice.) But yes, I've keeping an eye out on the private sales forum for a CZ75 nearby =).

Not much is comparable to the CZ @ ~500-600 range for all steel.

Maybe a RIA G.I. 1911 @ 9mm, msrp is at about $510 is as close as I can think of, or the taxtical version for a little under $600, (both need to factor in sse fees).

I live and breathe by my 92fs, great and accurate gun. The cz seems even more accurate, but the weight is a lot if you aren't used to all metal guns. Either is a great choice.

Thanks.

I'll look into what buying a gun online entails. I know I have to ship it to an FFL, but I'd like to get an idea of what all the taxes and fees are going to look like so I don't get blindsided. I'd also have to look into what I can do about those magazines (do the FFL's take them? or do some rebuild them for a fee?). My main concern is that I can't inspect it before I pay for it. =\

EDIT: nvm, CZ-custom.com's website says they swap the mags. =)

CZ pistols are top of the 9mm-all-metal charts IMO. I'd take a $500 CZ over a $3000 anything else. There is a strong love for Hi-powers by some people. I don't care for them myself but I can't deny they are good pistols.

Yeah, but as far as similar guns go its either the 75B, the 92FS, or the P226.

I was obsessed with getting the 75B until I saw the P226, it's sweet looking. Though the 75B is wayyyy cheaper and just as good or better. I held one at a gun show and didnt like it much, but I'm gonna check it out again this weekend before I drop a ton of money on the sig.

Both the berreta and sig have a totally different feel. I mean if we are just listing out DA/SA guns I can add a few more : )


FWIW, I don't particularly like the 75B. The lack of a beavertail really bugs me. The 75 SA, and the Sp01s all are just about perfect in my book as far as "feel" goes.

Just to see what I mean

Could anyone school me on buying guns online?

As I understand it, I should contact an FFL who will agree to receive the firearm for me for some fee. The gun will be shipped to them, and when they receive it, I go and start the normal DROs process and so on, endure 10 days of torture, and then go pick it up.

So bottom line, I pay the $25 DROs + tax + FFL fee + gun price?

Sorry, just going by others' experience (all friends), some in the military (SEALs, Marines, etc.), some in law enforcement, all reliable sources.

CZ has been around longer, yet it is harder to find people who have issues with them.

No worries, the Beretta doesn't seem to get much love even though it's a well designed and reliable handgun. I've owned and shot both and my experience is that both pistol are good choices.

Actually, the Beretta 92 has been around longer than the CZ-75 but not by much. The 92 was designed in 1972 and the CZ-75 in 1975. The 92 design can be traced back to the M1951 which was developed in the 50's. :D

In SF Bay area, the last I checked FFL transfer from an FFL only place (ie; some guys house) was about $50 for the transfer itself. Might have gone up or down.

Since the FFLs now MUST charge CA sales tax, they've become less of a good deal, so I'm not sure if they adjusted down to get the business back or not.

I think the same might have happened with any manufacturer. At the time, of course, being a Commie gun, CZ was not considered. My issue with the Beretta was the safety, trigger, and that I found it butt ugly.........which is just a style thing. It is great that both, and many more, are available.

I don't think there is a 75 in .40. Also, 75 mags do not fit 75B and vice versa. The original 75 is a collector's item at this point.

Listen to me. Buy a 75B SA in 9mm and don't look back. You will not regret it. If you have to wait a while to find it, then wait. You will not find a better pistol at that price or even much higher. The SA model has a few extra goodies over the regular B model like a drop free mag brake, extended beavertail, bigger safety lever, and extended mag release. Believe me. It's worth it.

Any CZ can be made drop free. As for the rest of that stuff, it is good to have and worth something.

As for carrying a SA pistol (if that is one's intent), most of the people who say they do, don't. The gun is a DA/SA design, and the SA version a really nice marketing variation. Is the safety still going to be engaged at the end of the day? Probably......a word that is not in the vocabulary of shooters. I have not found an ex armed forces person who carried a 1911 who carried it cocked and locked, and many were limited in mag capacity as well. It is a limited sample.........but includes my dad back in Korea.

Yes, there are 75Bs in .40.

Finding magazines for the 75 will be much harder than mags for the 75B.

The 75 does NOT have a firing pin 'B'lock. If it really bugs you, you can disable the 'B' of the 75B.

ie; go for the 75B. or the 75B SA or the SP-01.

Of those, the 75B SA is probably the "best" to target shoot with (get some upgrades from Cajun Gun Works for more awesomeness), but the SP-01 is a better USPSA competition gun (because it's DA/SA so it fits into "production class"), unless you get a .40 75B SA, which would do well in Limited 10 division.

Also the SP-01 is pretty heavy. For a day at the (static) range, the 75B SA in 9mm is really really hard to beat. You might get bored of only seeing one hole on the paper! :p
(Or have a lot of fun getting your skill to that point!)

Target Bastards in Milpitas has a 40 Cal Tactical Sport for $1,000.

Call around, you should be able to find one, I love to hunt for stuff I want. It's out there, you just need to put in the work. For me it's worth it in the end.

Not sure what you are trying to say here. My 75B SA is my EDC. In fact it is the only pistol I currently own. I do carry it cocked and locked, almost daily.

Not sure what you are trying to say here. My 75B SA is my EDC. In fact it is the only pistol I currently own. I do carry it cocked and locked, almost daily. And...well I'm just not sure what you're talking about when you make reference to the safety still being engaged at the end of the day...but I don't have any issues.

Brother, Props to you. Damn thing was to heavy for me to carry. I plan on picking up a 2075 pretty soon for a carry gun.

It is a heavy sucker, I'll give you that. I kind of like the heft though. I have pretty decent holsters for it so it hasn't been an issue for me...yet that is :D

Although I gotta say with the CC laws you guys have in TX I might be a little nervous about carrying it because of its size. It can tend to print a bit if you're not real careful...

Not to mention anything more then shorts and a T shirt down here and you will die of heatstroke. I think with jeans and a good solid belt a 75sa wouldnt be to bad.

Model: SP-01 Tactical
Caliber: 40 S&W
Price: 700.00
Location: North San Diego, Solana Beach
Description:
Absolutely unfired SP-01 Tactical bought from Table Rock with an SSE through DAS. It's an SP-01 with a decocker in 40 S&W. Tiny mar on frame near trigger that I have no idea how it got there. Price includes 2, 10 round mags and 2, 12 round magazine rebuild kits. The higher asking price is a reflection of the SSE as well as the additional 10 round magazines. Price does not include transfer fees.

No I didn't, just went off of what was written. When you said "standard SP-01" I actually thought you meant standard SP-01. I'm not the brightest guy, so please bare with me. :o

My bad,

Man, for the price I paid plus having to pay for shipping as well as my FFL charge to accept the transfer, makes me wonder?? Hmmm, it could be yours for $1k :) I'll even pick up the PPT fees!

Probably could have saved some dough purchasing from CZ Custom.

Never the less, I had a Sp-01 a while back, sold it and regretted it almost immediately.

I have yet to own the sp01. But I do love and am accurate with my p01. Buuuut I believe im more accurate with my SA. Hahaha I've hit targets at 100y with my SA. And about 50y with my p01

i absolutely dislike the beretta platform. CZ? I own several now. I've sold my glock, my XD, and my rock island 9mm tactical.

I own a Cajun Gunworks tuned SP01 SA, a 75 Shadow SAO, a 75 Shadow, and a matte stainless 75b.

My CGW SP01 has been absolutely destroying people in dueling tree shoots. I've lost once in a couple dozen shoot outs. Love it to death.

Just one thing to remember. The SP01 and 75SA have higher beavertails than the 75B. Also, if you have a 75B in .40 you can use that slide on the SP01 frame. :) Both pistols will also work with the Kadet upper. My current setup is the 75B with the Kadet upper and the SP01 with it's 9mm slide. I've also run the 75B .40 slide on it. The M9/92 is well meh. I preferred the 1911 and had to qual on both. Not like we carried everyday though.

Hmmm, I'll be darned.

I guess it's lucky for me that I just eliminated .40 from my collection and don't care to add it back in, or I'd be very tempted by that.

Ambi safety! One of the best feeling ones out there IMO.

I really need to pick up another one, I miss mine.

I didn't like the ambi safety. The right side lever kept snagging on stuff and my trigger finger would get in the way of it when my finger was off the trigger. So I removed it. There's a guy on the CZ forums that makes custom bushings for it. They take like five minutes to install and fits perfectly flush on the frame. It's great.

I could imagine as a CCW piece that would be an issue. I was using it as a target/range gun.

I'm looking at picking up a 2075 here in the next couple months if I can find one in stock. Seems to be about the only CZ that is easy to find, even the p07s that were sub 400 are starting to dry up.

I was looking for a 9mm. My top choices were the Beretta m9, cig 226, a used hk usp, and the Cz p-01. After a long time of research and homework I went with the p-01 and I'm so happy I did. There is no perfect pistol out there but the p-01 is close. Now I need a sweet 1911:)
