Get the SP-01

It is leaps and bounds better and no, itís not just a rail that makes it different

If you get the 75, you'll likely still want to get the SP-01. I had the same dilemma a few years ago. Now I have SP-01, PCR, 97, RAMI. I sent my SP-01 to Cajun Gun Works for the Pro Package, and now my new dilemma is that I want to send them all to CGW! Being a gun enthusiast has a bit of trial and error, you'll eventually find the ones that you enjoy the most......kinda like a Mormon with his wives. Good luck!

I hear ya. I used to airsoft back in high school and my dilemma then is the same dilemma now in terms of which guns to get first off my ďlistĒ of wants. Iíll look into CGW, ive seen it being posted around a lot but never actually done the research on it yet.

I'd get the BD. I generally like decockers more than manual safeties. Sp-01 has a decocker model, but it's a lot more expensive in california because of the roster.

In a free state, sp01 tactical no question.

Do you have a CZ PCR or P-01, a Kel-Tec P-11, a WASR, a fixed mag Draco, or a gen 2 or 3 PSAK-47? Let me know as I may be interested in buying or trading for those.

Do i need rails, night sights, and all the bells and whistles?..... Only turn off from the SP-01, to me, is the thicker, “squared” frame, and the safety. Plus, like i said, i dont need everything that it comes with.

But it will bug me knowing i spent $500 on the 75BD if i couldve gotten a “better” gun for the same amount.

So yeah, long story short, i prefer the looks and the decocker of the 75BD....... Lol
Then get the BD!

All the features on the SP01 that most posters are raving about are things that you really don't care. BUT that bulbous nose of the SP01 is a turn off to you.

See, its like the 1911s. Most rave about front cocking serrations, full length guide rod, upswept beavertail, skeletonized hammer, serrations on the front strap, ambidextrous thumb safety, Novak sights, etc. etc. So, I bought 1911s with those features and without. I enjoy the GI set up more. Even when not shooting, I have a distinct pleasure of just LOOKING at a GI setup 1911 much more so than the " loaded/featured " ones.

A similar situation will be like buying a C3 Corvette (I am old so I am no longer familiar w/ newer Corvettes). I like the looks of a stock looking C3 Corvettes with its classic flowing lines, deep throated powerful rumble compared to one that has abhorent and gaudy looking spoilers, lowered suspension with super wide tires sticking out the sides, bratty sounding aftermarket exhaust system, funky looking distasteful and outlandish paint jobs.

Be guided by what YOU want, OP.

^^^@DArBadís statement sounds familiar... think I read it somewhere not too long ago - though written differently, message is the same 😉

I prefer the balance of the SP-01 but as with all things in life YMMV...

I went with the SP-01 because I prefer the manual safety as it is consistent with my 1911s. I don't own any decocker guns anymore. Get the one that YOU want!

I bought the BD last year and love it. I didn't need a rail and the BD reminds me of a high power with a decocker. I like the decocker so much I bought a PCR to go with it. Just as nice but a little smaller. Great conceal carry pistol. If you need the rail get the sp-01, if not the bd works fine. Some of the prices menthioned above are fud. The BD will usually cost you 75. to 100. less. The tactical is more than that. Both the sp-01 and the p-01 are very popular right now so you won't get as good a price break on then. I don't like cocked and locked as a carry weapon so the decocker works for me. Same trigger as a revolver on first shot and single action for the rest. To me that is simpler and quicker than messing with the safety in a stress filled situation. It's all about your personal preference. There are no wrong choices if your happy with them. Besides you will probably end up with more than one. CZs are very nice guns.
