Default CZ-75 B.... Accuracy.

Does anybody know if accuracy of CZ-75 B is good or not?

It's good. I had a CZ 75B but eventually sold it and still kinda regret it. Todd G at pistoltraining<dot>com wrote a controversial article citing that CZ's have feed problems but I never had any issues. Of course, I kept it impeccably clean.

The Cz feels as good as a 1911 in the hand and is really well balanced. It also looks really good. It's a classic.

There are only two things I did not like about the CZ 75B and those can be fixed. They are:

1. the rather puny iron combat sights. I like Novak and Bomar type sights better but that's just personal preference. Of course you can get better aftermarket sights for them.

2. I did not like the rather stagey feel of the trigger. Also, in single action, the hammer does not break right away. It creeps slightly backwards before breaking. Not a deal breaker but I just think it could be made smoother. I think it's partly the fault of the firing pin block. The SP-01 has a much lighter and smoother pull in comparison to the 75B (although they are the same platform) perhaps due to the absence of a firing pin block. You might also want to either consider a trigger job which will probably fix the stagey feel, or look for a pre-B 75 (without a firing pin block) in good condition although they may be hard to find. Time may also make the trigger smoother with a good break in period. I didn't have the patience to do any of that and wanted something to my liking right out of the box.

I would not discount a CZ 75B as it is a fine pistol. I would still have mine except I don't like collecting a lot of guns *GASP!*.

Just like a 1911, the CZ just requires a bit of work to make it feel right and then you would have an awesome, all steel pistol.

I'll tell you one thing though. It's hard to beat the feel of the CZ 75B in the hand. Certainly not any of the "Tupperware" guns (I own a Tupperware gun so I'm not being anti-plastic).

I like it way more than a Browning HP in the hand. Very few pistols come close to the feel of a CZ except a 1911...hmmm, maybe not even a 1911!

If you could come up with a little more money I highly recommend any of the SP-01 variants. They spawned from the P-01 which was derived from the 75B. They tweaked the ergos on the 01’s and the P-01 is the only NATO approved pistol available to the public, the U.S. Army "Mean Rounds Between Failure" requirement is 495 rounds for 9mm pistols. During testing of the CZ P-01, the average number of stoppages was only 7 per 15,000 rounds fired…..the SP’s hold 19 rounds as well, this one is the tactical, which means decocker lol

The legendary grip, and the factory rubber panels blow away Hogue and Pachmyer imo

Meprolight tritium combat sights




The BEST service pistol I have ever shot

For a service grade pistol they are quite good. They can be tuned for better as well.

I'm a big fan of the CZ pistols. Personally I like the sp01 models, but they do need a little work. I did a write up that is over in the gunsmithing section on how to polish out the trigger a big.

I would always recommend a Cajun Gun Works Trigger kit, along with springs. You will notice the largest change by swapping out the heavy main spring with a lighter one ( this is across the line up ). A trigger kit really only helps with the single action pull.

very nice write up, it is exactly what I did to mine.....accept when I was driving the slave pin out with the oem the firing pin block spring slid up and got pushed out of the other side of the frame.....CZ custom has them in stock but it cost 7 bucks to send two $3 springs...I have considered the CGW hammer because when you get into the gut you can see how the hammer plays a big part in the trigger feel. I decided to leave it where it is at for now because I honestly don’t want it any more sensitive than it already is, after the polish, for my every day pistol

Yea I mauled that spring a bit also, managed to salvage it though. I don't mess with the slave pin, I've become pretty fast at putting the sear cage back together.

The mainspring/FPB/FP spring replacement is by far the best upgrade I think. Doing the hammer is just being picky : ) Sadly, the decocker models will never get as light as some of the DA/SA guns.

I had a CZ 75, still have my CZ 50 and I agree w authors 2 primary faults. I also thought it had more muzzle flip than it should for a 9mm.

All these faults could be corrected. Colts & Hi Powers came w hump & bump sights in the early days as well. The full frame in photo w probably have eliminated my problem w muzzle flip as well.
