    Both great pistols, but for me, it's the Beretta 92FS/M9. You'll have to decide which fits you best.

    I'd give the CZ a slight edge.

    If it's just going to be a range gun then the CZ wins hands down!

    I have both and I would take the CZ to the range before I would bring my Beretta.

    CZ ROCKS!!!!:rock:

    Beretta 92 < CZ75B < CZ75SP01 < CZ75SA

    Just my personal preference.

    Get a CZ, any of them. The best value is pistols out there right now. You will not be disappointed. Czech steel, you gotta love it.

    CZ was kind of the way I was leaning anyway good to hear. I guess it is a plus I live in Kansas City if I did have to send it back I am about 10 minutes driving distance from where they are at, no worries about shipping a firearm.

    CZ. To me much better grip than the Berretta.

    The CZ is an all steel tank that has expensive magazines and routinely sheers off the cheap slide stops around 10,000 rounds.

    The Beretta 92 is an aluminum framed gun with polymer coated parts on the newest models that has cheap mags and routinely sheers off the expensive locking block lugs around 30,000 rounds.

    CZ is great for durability but the Beretta is great for aftermarket options. I'd own both but get the Beretta first.

    I love both, but would choose the 92 for the range.

    Mecgar makes CZ mags. They are cheap and reliable.

    I have at least 20k rounds through mine and haven't sheared a slide stop. Its easy enough to keep a spare if you are concerned about it.

    So ended up with an SP01 Custom, and WOW :wow:. The thing is amazing ran a 100 rounds through it at lunch today. Trigger is the best I have ever shot. This gun has just moved to the top of my favorite list. Sorry no pics but oh well. Only problem I had was trigger was so smooth, was trying to get down reset and had two double taps(I was scared the mags was gonna empty,almost full autoish,if that makes sense) So eased off and let trig fully reset. All groups were tighter than I usually shoot. Am very impressed in the quality.

    If you have been thinking about one I would say pick it up for sure.

    They're both great choices but I'd personally choose the CZ for ergonomics.

    The CZ's have a frame mounted safety and the ability to be carried cocked and locked, so that all shots can be single action. No way I'd choose a DA/SA trigger gun with a lame slide-mount decoccker/safety over that.

    Good choice. I may pick up either a CZ or a Hi Power before shooting any major matches this summer.

    I think every collection should have a 92 and a CZ75.
