Default Who likes CZ handguns? I just got one.

My buddy has had this CZ 40 B at his shop for a while,someone traded it in on a Glock.I've looked at it a couple times,and thought it was a well made pistol.Nice and tight fit between the frame and slide,and this gun hasn't been shot much at all.
Well,I just had to buy it today.I've never had a 40 cal pistol before,and so I'll try this one.
It is a double action,10rd mags,and has nite sights(Novak style).The trigger has a very long pull-I'll have to get use to it,but is not real heavy.
The only thing that I don't like about it,It's a PIA to take down,it took two of us to figure out how to get the slide release pin out.It won't come out if you line the marks up,you have to pull the slide about a 1/2" farther before the slots line up to get the pin out.

I've been told that CZ pistols are good shooting guns.I'm going to go to the indoor range in a few days,and try it out.It's just too hot outside right now.

Congratulations. It should be a great pistol for you.

I have an old CZ model 70 7.65mm (.32acp) made in 1974.
It's my only CZ right now, but I love it, wish I had more CZ's

I've got a 75b. Nothing fancy, just a plain old service 9mm. But that darn thing seems to make a convert out of anyone who runs a mag through it. Simple, balanced, accurate, nice trigger. They sure do make a nice 9mm at a great price.

Nice pistola, Tx. I had one of the Canadian import CZ75's back in the '80's. Green krinkle paint finish (like a Steyr GB). It had the slickest DA trigger of any semi auto I've ever tried. Sold it, and have spent 20 years looking to replace it. Ha.

CZ makes awesome guns.

I like them, great solid built frame, good trigger, good hand fit, non-picky diet of lead, and priced reasonably. Just an all around solid shooter and performer.
