CZ Pistols

Just curious to know if any of you folks carry a CZ pistol on a daily basis. If you do, what model is it, and is it stock (or smithed)? I keep hearing great things about CZ pistols, but I have to admit to being totally ignorant about them.

My main carry pistol is a stock CZ85 Compact in .40s&w. Its a a great shooting, rugged little gun. So far I\'ve put about 1000 rounds thru it without a hiccup.

I also own a CZ75B in .9mm.

Definately check out: www.czforum.com for far more CZ info than you\'ll have time to read!

I daily carry a stock CZ75 (old style). I've had it since the mid-eighties and have yet to find a more out-of-the-box reliable, ergonomically ideal, down-right European-sexy (if that's not a bad thing these days) pistol. The only change I've made to the gun is to dab some orange paint on the front sight and soon I'll be adding a pair of Hakan Pek's grips. The DA pull is the smoothest, most revolver-like I've ever experienced on a stock pistol. It carries like a Hi-Power and shoots like a dream.

I recently acquired a CZ40-P and will be doing some minor (non-essential) upgrades. As soon as I fully recover from my dislocated shoulder I'll wring it out for possible CCW. It's lighter than the 75 and the balance is second-to-none.

My CZ100 .40 S&W sometimes also does (summer) CCW duty.

In case you can't tell - I'm sold on Czechnology. And yeah - czech out the forum. :kay:

How did you get one before the fall of the iron curtain? I thought they were virtually impossible to get back then.

It was one of a lot imported by an outfit called Bauska out of Kalispell, MT.

Amazingly, the cost was roughly what a 75B goes for today. I like the new ones too - but I think the trigger was slightly better on the "A" model. I wish I'd bought two of them.

I carry a CZ52 most commonly. Like the firepower and in the winter is easliy concealable. Same size as a 1911 approximately. Am looking at picking up a CZ50 (.32 cal) also for carry in summer months. These are reliable pistols, accurate too.

For what it's worth, COL Jeff Cooper, the father of American pistolcraft (who is NO fan of any 9mm) said that of all the crunchentickers (his nickname for the 9mm family) the CZ is the most efficient and has the best ergonomics. Can't get a better endorsement.
