    Would you talk about your RAMI a bit? I'm really interested in it...

  3. You bet. I have the "older" model RAMI (all steel as opposed to the new polymer RAMI P) in 9mm. It's basically a SA/DA double stack 9mm with a 3" barrel. It has a manual safety so it can be carried "cocked and locked" like a 1911, but I usually carry hammer down for a DA first shot (just personal preference)

    It's supposedly modeled on the 75 but in reality its a chopped down model 40. To me, it shoots like the full size 75, though. I've found it to be way more accurate than I am.

    I've read on several other forums about some ammo feeding problems with the .40, so I went with the 9mm. Plus, I don't know if shooting .40 ammo through such a small gun would be very fun. The 9mm isn't too bad at all. I did replace my magazine springs with Wolff springs recently, just to be sure.

    One of my few gripes about this gun is that it is pretty picky about ammo. It eats just about any FMJ/ball ammo, but HP's are a different story. I initially picked up some Golden Saber and Federal Personal Defense JHPs, intending to carry with one or the other. I found out on the range, however, that my RAMI didn't like either (several FTF/FTE's even after a several hundred round break-in period). I got some Pow'rball, figuring that the round polymer ball nose would be more similar to shooting FMJ's but that was even worse than the Remington/Federal JHP's (FTF/FTE about every 3rd round). I finally found that my gun likes Magtech Guardian Gold JHP's and Federal's Expanding Full Metal Jacket Personal Defense round. No problems with either of those through about 200 rounds so far.

    Anyway, I love this gun. It carries much better than my Glock 26 ever did and I can shoot it way better. It is a little heavy, but really not much more so than most other pistols, and with a good holster and belt (or even in my Smartcarry) I don't notice the weight.

    Hope this helps. Sorry if I rambled there for a while. I'm more than happy to answer any other questions.

  4. I picked up a stainless 75B recently and just love the gun. I did have one complaint though. The smooth front and rear grip frame straps. I am used to having checkering on both, like my 1911's and other guns. I saw a picture of a Browning Hi Power that had been textured and really liked it. I decided to try my hand at stippling/texturing. I used two bastard files and literally whacked my way to a really nice texture that feels great. Here are some pictures.




    here are the files I used to strike the frame and make the stippling/texturing.

    Nice work, tex.

  6. Tex, did those grips come stock? If not, where'd you get them? I have a 75B in the satin nickel finish and I think those would be a nice addition.

    Yes sir,

    They did come on the gun. I believe you can get them directly from CZ.

    ishi,

    Thank you......it really makes a difference in how the gun handles.

    I have one of the newer CZ Rami`s in 40 caliber and i love this little handgun.The recoil isn`t bad at all and it is very accurate for a gun with such a short barrel.It is the gun i carry the most here in florida when the days are hot,which is most of the time,other than my S&W airweight body gaurd 38.I have also heard stories about them being picky with ammo,but mine has shot everything i have fed it with no problems at all.They are easy to take down and clean and the price isn`t bad either.I would definately say take a look at this gun to anyone wanting to purchase one.

    eye candy

    Finally got replacements for my stripped grip screws. Now I can put on my new grips! From dennis marschal.

    It looks pimp.

    Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this, except that it ain't so.

    Cz-40 was my choice

    I liked the step up from 9mm to .40 with a slightly longer barrel length and a tad more weight. I carry at the SOB position (wow, there's a debate for this forum) so concealment wasn't much of a problem. The CZ-40 became my favorite. Liked the heavier round and more solid feel, accuracy stayed the same from my lighter 9.

    If I HAVE to complain about something I will comment that I took a training course and the instructor was unhappy that the slide design wasn't as clean as a 1911. It is a bit awkward for the reach-over and rack back movement. His comment seemed valid although I coped differently when on other ranges.
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    I've had the 40P since about the time they started offering it. Not my usual carry gun due to the larger frame size than my Kahr. Other than a little bit of a gritty trigger, (still), I do enjoy shooting it. One of my 'best buy's' when I picked it up for $300. Still don't understand why they priced them so low...
