Thread: Is the CZ75B a reliable carry option ?

  1. Question Is the CZ75B a reliable carry option ?

    I have been looking at the CZ75B as carry and IDPA option. I have read that CZ is and accurrate and durable gun comparable to Sigarms and Para. Any CZ owners confirm this is a good weapon for conceald carry?

  3. I have a stainless CZ75B. Awesome pistol. I haven't had it long (4 months?) but it has never failed to feed or had any issue with function or reliability. No matter the ammo it seems to keep on chugging. It's also a beautifully made weapon. (I've never seen such precise engraving.) If I weren't such a .45 junky I'd carry nothing else.

    (FWI, A CZ75B loaded and with one up the pipe along with two spare mags means you're carrying 49 rounds. BGs, steer clear!)

    Exclamation The CZ75 is a world class handgun

    Col. Jeff Cooper put the CZ 75 series pistol in high regards.
    The Israelis copied the internals for the Jericho 941 and the baby eagle.
    EAA Witness, and Armalite AR/24 are both based on it.

    It is a great...RELABLE...combat handgun. I have a Baby Eagle because of the lineage and the reliability of the CZ 75 Mechanism.

    CZ makes some fine guns. I have never owned one, but I have shot a friend's at the range once or twice with nary a hiccup.

  6. I am a big CZ fan.

    With that said, the only reliable carry firearm is the one that you have tested. Even if you purchase that fine CZ, you will still need to put a good 500-1000rds through it flawlessly before you consider it for protecting you and your loved ones.

    I have a 75B SA (single action only version) that feels very good in my hand and is very accurate. However, it will never be a carry for me because of all the problems I have had with it.

    When I first got it I experienced a FTF (3 point bind) rate in excess of 50%. I sent it in to CZ-USA for warranty work and when I got it back I was still having FTF about 20%. I am now only having the occasional FTF, but they are still there. All ammo has been factory FMJ of either Remington or Winchester.

    I also got the .22 cal Kadet conversion kit with it and from day one I have been experiencing a 10 – 20% misfire rate. Ammo works fin in other weapons and always fires in second attempt.

    I know that CZ has a good name out there and that a lot of people are very happy with them, but I will probably never purchase another CZ because of the problems that I have experienced with both of the CZ product I have. For a 9mm I will stay with the Hi-power.

    I had similar issues, but I have to tell you that if you contact Mike the gunsmith for CZ he is great. He gave me some fixes that were outside of the scope of CZ replacement parts. Sort of like sending a Macy's customer to Gimbel's (if you recognize the dated reference). He is very knowledgeable and very helpful.

    You can locate his email on the CZ USA site.

    If you still have that gun I would try and contact him, let him know what has been done, and take a shot that maybe he can suggest something.

    I do recognize the quote, great movie! We watch it every year.

    I do still have the CZ because it really feels good in the hand and it, with the Kadet conversion kit, is the only .22 pistol I have. I will lookup Mikes e-mail and ask him what he can suggest.

    Thanks.

  10. Well, the CZ75 is used by more police forces and military outfits around the world than any other pistol. There's probably a reason for that.

    CZs are fine guns, and yes they are used by more police and militaries. The company also owns Dan Wesson now as well, and it's designs are the basis for a number of good clone guns, the Desert Eagle, EAA Witness, Armalite AR-24, Israeli T-95 and others. I personally don't own one now, but I'm thinking of getting the subcompact .40sw 2075 RAMI as my next toy. All my research leads me to find most folks love 'em.
