    Finally got the chance to try out my bright stainless steel CZ-75B. Trigger seems to be slightly rougher than my carbon steel but accuracy is primo. Shooting pretty much to point of aim at 15-yards with Winchester White Box and ringing gongs all day at 25-yards. Here's an unsupported 15-yards shot group done by a guy that I coached. This was his fourth trip to the range and first time with the CZ. Aside from a couple of fliers, most of the rounds were dead on.

    Notice the dusting on the far left gong signifying a hit.

    My CZ 75 is one of the most accurate pistols I own, its not SS though. Its one heavy mutha to tote, though. That Stainless version looks NICE !

    Very nice, fnfalman.

    I love my CZ-75 as well.

    I've been eyeing a CZ-75B or SAO for the last few days. This is not helping. :)

    Never shot one. Everyone raves about them. Maybe someday, but they seem a bit
    pricey. I'm kinda cheap and won't pay more for a name.
    If the trigger is kind of grindy with stainless on stainless, is there a benefit over a cheaper stainless pistol? like maybe a Ruger p89?

    And to think for years they were waaaay underpriced for their perceived value. Still and all, when considering ALL of the European mfgs, they do put out a good product for a good price point. Donchathink?

    Condrats. I have the stainless CZ75B as well. It is extremely accurate not to mention a good looking gun. When I go to the range with friends they always want to shoot it.

    Afterwards they all comment on on how accurate it is. I wish CZ did more marketing here in the U.S.

    I think the CZ is very underrated and people are missing out on such a reliable gun.

    Pricey? MSRP for the carbon steel 75B is around low $500. You can get it for around $450 easily. The SS model is considerably more expensive though.

    As far as benefit over a cheaper stainless steel gun like a Ruger...well, there's the fit & finish and accuracy thingies.:tongueout:

    Fit and finish on a like new Ruger p89 is just fine.
    That was kind of my point, what is the added value to justify $550-$600 for a stainless CZ when I can get a Ruger p89 for half that?
    Both are heavy, reliable metal framed pistols, but the CZ is twice the price. I heard the triggers are nothing special, so that doesn't justify the cost. Is the accuracy that much better?
    Seems like they have priced themselves a bit out of reach, at least for me.
    To each his own, if a couple of hundred extra is a drop in the bucket for the buyer then that is good. For me, $300 versus $600 is a big deal.

    How are you going to compare the price of a brand new SS CZ75 to a KP89 which hadn't been made in what, ten year?

    2 years. They stopped making them in 2007, and they are still everywhere. You can find them brand new all the time on gunbroker for buy it now prices from $300-$350, and in fact they are still in some gun shops.
    Ruger still makes the p90 as well.
    So the point is valid.

    What makes the CZ worth $200 more? I am not demeaning the CZ, I really know nothing about it except people seem to love them. Just wondering why they are so expensive compared to a similar metal framed gun.

    Better fit and finish. Ruger firearms are known for one thing and one thing only: ruggedness. Everything else is pretty much crap when compared to similar items from its peers. Not to mention that the CZ stainless is made in much smaller quantities than the Ruger AND since that it's imported, CZ has to pay tariff taxes.

    The Ruger P89 triggers and ergonomics are grossly inferior to those of the CZ 75. I don't find it a bargain to buy a cheaper gun with a terrible pull and an ill-fitting grip frame.

    My CZ 75 SAO is scary accurate...great confidence builder. The thing just hits what you aim it at.
