    Sub-Compact CZ vs 1911 for EDC?

    I've been working a lot of overtime hours as of late, so I have a little extra play money. I've always wanted a CZ and a 1911. I never owned either. I'm just interested in getting opinions on which I should purchase between the CZ Rami and a 1911 chambered in 9mm like the RIA Tac CS or the Springfield RO?

    I voted RO






    This is my very first 9mm 1911.
    Out of the box accuracy is incredible, better than I can shoot.
    Trigger a bit gritty and stagy, but I had a 4.5lb trigger job done locally, and an ambi safety installed to counter my lefty-ness.
    The factory mags are.....meh, But Checkmate mags are running perfect.

    TD ... There is really no wrong answer here as a good case can be made for going in either direction. I personally have both a CZ 2075 RAMI (9mm) and a Springfield 1911 (Micro-compact in .45acp) as part of my carry rotation and like both really well (guess I'm no help here ). Good luck with your decision

    SA makes some really fine guns. I own 2 of their 1911's and really like them. Never had an RO though, but would spring for it if I had the cash.

    I would go with the CZ Rami. Or better yet, the M&P 9c or 40c.

    If you want something in 9mm, I'd go with the CZ, simply due to capacity. I alternate between a CZ for concealed carry, and a full size 1911 for open carry.

    Either will work well. It really depends on how you plan on carrying it. If you want to carry cocked and locked a 1911 is a better choice that the RAMI. While the RAMI is capable of being carried in that condition, it does have a very small safety lever and can be difficult to operate quickly. I carry mine in the DA/SA mode.

    I carried a government 1911 for a while before switching to a cz p-07.

    Completely different platform with the CZ DA/SA trigger, but I love it. More capacity, fairly light weight, and conceals easily. Rami seems like a fine gun. Never shot one though.

    On summer days in shorts and t shirt I go with a sig p938. I still prefer SAO, but the cz just feels right for a carry gun. If it is for carry get the rami or smaller frame pistol. I found myself much more likely to carry all the time when I had a small option to be more discrete.

    For a range toy only, 1911 by a mile.

    Unless im working I always carry a 1911.. I voted "other" because of your choices listed i'd go with the RO. The Rami doesn't interest me a all, i'd get a CZ p07 duty... (I have 3 of them).. The p07 has a slim grip, and all of mine just run and run. The RO is so much "prettier" and is built better than the p07. Flip a coin, or better yet, rent'em and see which one you like better. Im just glad that Glock wasn't one of your choices.........

    Do they still make the micro compact? I've never seen or heard of it before. That's one sexy little pistol there. I'm going to have to put you on the spot here. If you HAD to choose between the two in the pic, which one would you keep and EDC?

    Go RAMI or go home! But of course, I'm a bit biased. But seriously, very happy with my RAMI. I addition to being a looker, it shoots great and just feels good in the hand.
