Odd, the stock sights I thought are pretty decent white dots. Maybe they have changed in the last 5 years from what you guys have had experience with.

And as far as recoil. I had a HiPo that I sold to get my CZ 75 SA, I thought muzzle flip was less then the HiPo by a good amount.

As far as staggey trigger, I agree. Once you do a hammer swap, the reverse camming which creates that removes a lot of that feel.

All modern day pistols are more accurate then humans. My father has the CZ 75b and it's one comfortably pistol.

Very accurate. I picked up a bright stainless CZ75B about 3 years ago and it's my favorite shooter. My son also fell in love with it so I gifted it to him when he graduated from High School.

Fortunately he does not turn 21 for another year so I still get to shoot it while it's storred in my safe!

I'll have to buy myself another one before the kids next birthday.

Tack

I went with the 15# hammer spring, havenít messed with the others yet

As I qualified the small sight/white dot/sight picture of the stock 75B is a personal preference thing. Some people shoot really well with it but I just personally prefer modern sight pictures like Novaks. But it's nothing that can't be changed on a CZ since there are lots of aftermarket companies that make CZ compatible sights.

Another big plus is that it's a natural pointer for instinctive shooting.

But to answer the OP's question, yes, it is a very accurate pistol.

As others have suggested, if you do not want to spend money on trigger jobs and upgrades then consider spending a bit more, or looking for a used SP01 which will give you a really smooth gun out-of-the-box.

The only thing is that the SP01 does not have the beautiful classic lines of the 75B, nor does it have a firing pin block which may make the overall trigger system a wee bit smoother but I don't know if that's a safety concern; typically not for most people who handle firearms responsibly.

What would be nice is if Ceska Zbrojovka re-released the Pre-B models: blued (not polycoated), without the firing pin block, polished trigger internals, and round trigger guard.

Just a little correction, the spo1,sp01tac, and sp01 phantom all have firing pin blocks. Now the sp01 shadow does NOT have the block. The shadow is a dedicated competition pistol.

Thanks for the correction. I should have specified the SP01 Shadow specifically by name. Awesome sport shooting pistol and range gun.

Yeah, I do miss miss the CZ...I should have just changed those damn sights and dry fired it more! :-(
Is dry firing by any chance harmful for mechanism of CZ-75 B?

Very low chance, just like any modern auto.
