Default Range Report

Ok fellas here it is...

First let me appologize for the lack of photos. When arriving at the firing line I was met by two young ladies, mid twenties, practicing with an LCR and an LCP trying to determine which to buy for concealed carry. The only thing I enjoy more that shooting, is making sure new folks feel welcome, shoot safely, and get any advice they request so I was a bit distracted and fogot to pull out the camera.

I put 200 rounds through my new CZ75B SS without a hickup. Ammo was all FMJ, a mix of Mag Tech, PMC, and S&B.

Initially all rounds were impacting 6" low at 20 yards so I pulled the target in which resulted in 6" low at 10 yards. Both distances were fired with front & rear sights flush and all resulted in decent groups, 4" at 20 and 1.5 to 2" at 10but all of them 6" low.

I posted fresh targets, again at 10 yards, and held my front sight post "half high" and VWALLA, began hitting point of aim with most groups averaging 2".

This is the first all steel full size 9mm I've owned and I was amazed at the speed with which I could accurately empty the magazines...

I'm certain that my next trip, lacking any booby, um, I mean newbie distractions, did I mention they were hot, will result in better groups.

Tackleberry 1 Out

Isn't it great to send rounds downrange with a new pistol, especially a new cZ stainless. Hopefully, there will be no distractions on your next trip.

Sorry this took so long fella's but here's a pick of my new SS Beauty.

Trigger is nothing like my 1911's but for a DA/SA auto that carries locked n cocked, I can't complain. And I must say, it's the best looking pistol in my safe! I'm taking it out Saturday and will try to get some range pics to post.

Default "made in czech republic!!!"

months ago i was at a range that requires all weapons to be inspected first. 2 range officers. the first looks at my cz and suspiciously asks, "made in the czech republic????" the other officer wheels around, looks at me and says, "you gotta cz75? . . . that's a nice gun!" the first officer asks, "you want to take a look at it?" "nope" he replies. "i've played with those a lot. those are goooooood guns."

and they are. about 1,000 rounds through mine. no problems.

Congrats on your purchase. I just purchased a 75 B a few weeks back. Just the standard one - not the spiffy stainless one. I took it to the range for the first time last week and I have to admit, I've never shot so well. Now to be fair - I think there were multiple factors at play. I'm actually getting better the more I practice (still pretty new to this), and I've finally recovered from a nagging wrist injury that I picked up while snow mobiling this winter. But the improvement in accuracy with the 75 was very noticeable to me. I fed it a mixture of rounds to see if it liked one more than another, but it worked great with everything I threw at it (S&B, WWB, and Independence 9mm 115gr. FMJ).

I ordered a couple of extra mags for it and the factory rubber grips. The plastic ones that came with it were OK, but I think I'll like the rubber ones better. Once those come in I'll take it back out and see how she does - but after the first outing I am definitely a fan.

Default Hitting Low

My first trip out was with 115 FMJ's and as I posted, all round impacted at a consistent 6" low mark.

2nd trip out was with 147 FMJ's with the same result. I was holding a full front sight post high to hit point of aim.

Yesterday I ran 200 124 FMJ's, HSM factory reloads and finally found point of aim with the sights flush.

I've never seen this much vertical deviation in a handgun at these distances, 10 to 20 yards and I'm thinking of shipping it back to CZ to have it checked out?

Tack

Has anyone else shot it? How did it shoot for them?

Why would there be that much deviation in different loads?

Mine shoots everything I've fed it to point of aim. I've shot 115fmj, 1oogr powRball, and 124grain too. I'd let some others try it and see how they shoot with it first before sending it in.

Yes, 3 others, all good shooters have fire it with the same results.

I've no idea why I'm getting this deviation.
