Default Which should I buy?

I have two handguns available to me for the same price. In the fine opinion of this forum's members, which is the better gun to own?

CZ75


Or a Baby Desert Eagle .40 aka. Jericho 941

CZ - it's not even a competition unless, like the good sgt indicates, you are "looking" for a certain look.

I was tempted to click you interrupted my pr0n sorfing, but alas, I can't do that from this nazi terminal here in my cubicle hell hole....

Get the CZ - or wait, sell off your recent 1911 acqusition and get yourself a top of the line 1911 and bask in the glory that is owning the best handgun platform on the planet.

Does the CZ look like it should be carrying a purse?

(I happen to agree with you, btw)

We are more alike than I thought. That was precisely my plan. You are good.

Well, one big issue, to me, whenever I look at a handgun is where is the safety mounted? If it doesn't have one, like on the Sig, find out what internals it does have to make up for that.

If it's trigger mounted, in my opinion, keep walking. Why? "I am the only one in this room, that I know of, who is professional enough to carry the Glock .40" BANG!

On the CZ, it's a solid, frame mounted safety. This is how it should be.

On the early Baby Eagles, or Jericho's, or whatever, they were a slide mounted safety. JD, and company, do not like/recommend slide mounted safeties.

Why? Isn't it all the same?

No, it's not.

Look, your slide performs many functions, and is usually a solid piece of steel/aluminum, but it also houses your striker, which is the part that makes the gun go bang when the trigger is pulled. There also isn't as much real estate on the slide to correctly mount a safety.

By mounting the safety on the frame, where it is supposed to be, you have a solid, non moving part of the weapon with more real estate to form a solid platform. So, when the slide moves around, the components of the safety are nice and sound on the frame and aren't being subjected to the same back and forth force of repetitive round stressors.

In addition, the slide is the part most exposed while in a holster, while the frame is usually in the holster itself. If the safety is mounted on the frame, and the frame is in your holster, there is much less of a chance for that safety to "accidentally" go to fire. Since the back of the slide and hammer region is usually where the snap or buckle is placed for retention purposes, guess what part of the weapon gets fiddled with the most when you holster and unholster the weapon?

That's why we ONLY recommend frame mounted safeties for handgun purchases in the shop.

Just food for thought...

JD

Honestly, and with any experience, I couldn't tell you. I will say that I have been very close to getting my own Jericho pistol once. That being said, and out of the two, it's what I would go for. I'd want mine in a 45 though.

I guess you all DIDN'T read the thread... "I have two handguns available to me for the same price." Of the TWO choices AVAILABLE... I would take the CZ. Asked & answered.
