And now, for something different, my new CZ 75 Compact

Bought this about a month ago, maybe. Haven't even got around to shooting it yet.

What do you think? It's different (I've been working on it). Bought a bunch of parts last fall to do this to the compact I bought then. When my wife shot that one it became hers, so I had to buy myself another one to modify.

I've worked on it a good part of two days now. Passes the function checks (locks slide back on empty magazine, won't go on SAFE with the hammer down, hammer doesn't fall when the trigger is pulled and on SAFE, hammer doesn't fall when the safety is then moved to SAFE.

All I have to do now is decide if I want to round off that trigger guard or not (if I do that I'll have to get it refinished, too).

What do you think? Different, ain't it.

Sorry about the upside down picture. Photo bucket continues to disappoint me.





I didn't stone the trigger/sear surfaces where they meet but the lucky/happy combination of them yields a 3 lb. SA trigger pull and so crisp it feels much lighter. Unlike some CZs I don't feel the firing pin block safety lifting/stopping so when the trigger comes back and "stops" at the wall the barest pull drops the hammer, much like a 1911.

Great choice! Mine has the Pro Package by Cajun Gun Works and its amazing. I highly recommend them.

The only thing I don`t like about the gun is tearing the gun apart for a good clean. It is such a pain to reassemble with the small springs.

Other than that I love it.

My CZ P-01 is going on 10 years old and 5,000 rds. It has been an excellent, do all pistol. Big enough for the range, small enough to carry. CZ has become my overall favorite handgun brand.

You guys aren't helping. I've been talking myself out of getting one of these for almost a year!

You're in the wrong place for being talked out of buying a firearm.

I have a CZ Rami, I am a big fan of CZ.
You will enjoy it.
They aren't all plastic, in fact my Rami is alloy frame and stainless slide -I think.
Very well made and accurate. You get what you pay for

The CZ compact is one of my favorites. Accurate and very comfortable to shoot - although some folks don't like the beavertail as it's not upswept like the P01/SP01. A set of CZ cocobolo half-checker grips would look really good with that spur hammer. Enjoy!

Mine has been dead reliable so far, maybe 400 rounds. Great pistol.

i am a CZ fan from the time i got my first one , a true CZ75 in the late 80's .
the only one i have for now is the P07 for house defense

Thanks from WaM14gunner

I still have both CZ 75B-SA and my p-01 both have been great guns. The SA is upwards of 2 thousand rounds. I would still have my sp-01 if I didn't trade it for a Gunsite Scout. They are good pistols- not the end all be all, but I trust them.
