    The CZ-75 seems like a great old gun, and I am interested in the pre B model. What's the difference between Pre B and B? I want the most original and classic gun I can get.

    I believe the B model designates the addition of a firing pin safety. Model variations listed down the page.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CZ_75

    I'm with you on the original format. It is one of the last classic service pistols with elegant lines.

    Agree, I had a 75 ,1 of the originals. Old style, great pistol, I shouldn't have sold it. hard to find the old style now.

    I had a few Pre B models.

    I still have an unfired model from 1985.

    Thanks Josh

    Pretty crude gun though. Cheap finish.

    And looks like the test group may have been shot after lunch on Friday.

    I was thinking beers, but ya. It looks kinda like epileptic rimfire. A solid shooter should be able to group way better than that after a few pints.

    Yes the "B" indicates it has a firing pin safety.
    The pre-B models can be found but I'd just get a B and be happy.
    I believe they're a little better made than the earlier ones (tolerances).
    I certainty wouldn't pay a premium for a Pre-B myself!

    Old Bullseye shooters used a general term for all of it- "aiming fluid".

    My first 9mm was a CZ75. It was used when I got it, but in good condition.

    I used it for IPSC. I lent it to a guy and he bulged the barrel with his reloads. He brought me a new barrel but it was never the same.
    I eventually sold it to my friend the movie armourer who converted it to blank firing for stage and screen.

    I sold one of my Pre B's on Gunbroker for over $2100 a month or two ago. No box or anything.

    the pre bs seem nice.

    They look somewhat cosmetically different don't they??

    Was it a short rail? Or was it one of the Bauska imports?

    If you're looking for a CZ-75 to shoot, get a new - or at least current/recent - production version. The current CZs are some of the best made, all steel 9mm pistols on the market. Not that the old ones won't shoot, aren't collectible whatever, but the production quality now is light years ahead of what they used to be.
