    Like a lot of you, I decided the push for gun control deserves a gun purchase response. My newest entry:

    Wow I bet that things runs and shoots like a top. Very nice :) I would love to build one of those in .38 Super!

    Congrats.

    It actually took some adjustments and break-in to run smooth. The trigger is about as tight and crisp as any weapon I have (which admittingly isn't as extensive as some), with virtually no takeup and breaks like a glass rod with only about a 2# pull. The gun was set to fire 9mm Major though so I had to swap out to a 10# slide spring (at CZC's advice) to get it to run production ammo. The gun on a bench can group a quarter at 10 yards, which I found out while zero'ing the sight, and I'm sure in better hands than mine, can drive tacks.

    Add: one of the other reasons I got it (aside from joining my Open Class group of guns) was this gun's 27rnd mag was my personal "f-u" to Diane Feinstein and her proposed legislation.

    Sorry, bad phone camera picture. Gun is a CZ-75 Czechmate. What ended up making the choice was the cost-value of the package; gun came with the front and rear accessessories needed to convert to a Limited gun, and 3 mags. This is the open configuration; it can be converted to limited in about 5 min or so.

    Awesome :thumbsup:

    I have a CZ 75 champion, which was the predecessor to that. They are great shooters. :cool:

    You should trim your toe nail. Other than that, I envy your purchase!!
