    Just wondering what the CZexperienced would recommend and why. I know the Shadow 2 is all the rage, and maybe I'll jump on board that wagon. But it would be a stretch, since I intend to get a Kadet too if I do this. The Std. polycoat has all the gun I need ... not real concerned about a rail. But it ain't got that purty new beavertail. The SP-01 has the rail and that means a heavier dustcover which is good, but it also complicates using a Kadet because the Kadet has inserts that have to be fitted into the rails and on an SP-01 those inserts would have to run through a lot of rail to get to their fixed position, which could cause wear on the frame rails over time (just theorizing here). The Stainless is beautiful, afaik has the new beavertail, but there's a $$ premium for what is basically the same gun.

    Whatcha think?

    FWIW probably not interested in decocker models, but I'll read all comments.

    As someone who owns / has owned at least 13 CZs, I would recommend one with an upswept beaver tail:
    Newer Stainless 75B
    SP-01
    Now discontinued 75B SA

    I can relate that the difference in beavertail is visually noticeable between my CZ 75 BD Police and it's sibling, a polished stainless CZ 75 B, but I haven't noticed much of any real difference between the two under use...but we're all different, so...

    The problem with CZ is that it doesn't matter which one you buy. You will want another.
    The 75B is a great place to start. Here is some pics just to help you out.

    I thought the matte was a no-brainer if going w/ stainless but that actually isn't as outlandish as I imagined. Looks great.

    CZ75B fans, riddle this one out if you can.

    This one was my first 75B. It was bought around maybe 2003-2004 new in box. The markings suggested that it was part of the Turkish Military overrun. However that two tones look really threw me off. This is not the Tactical model that came with a similar two tones look and a crappy knife. The Tactical had green frame and black slide.

    I’ve never heard of a duo tones model like mine. Or even seen it in photos or advertisements.

    @fnfalman, looks to me that the manufacture year is 1996 (on the oval stamp just to the back of the ejection port). Must be a New Old Stock (if you bought it in 2003-2004).

    I've long been a fan of the matte stainless 75b.

    do look at the omega convertible decocker/safety model. I find the hammer doesn't cam back just before firing as it does on the standard model. just buy what strikes your fancy dictates as someone already said you'll end up with more of them.

    I know. The 96 marking and the funky grip panels with the thumb rests indicated Turkish Military overrun. It’s just that I never saw another with the same paint job, nor seen any advertising on a two tones like mine.

    There is also the limited edition brush SS with CZ Custom wooden grips. I wanted one but they were all sold out.

    A year or so ago I picked up a CZ75 SP01 with urban grey polycoat finish. While I'd have preferred stainless, I'm surprised how much I like the polycoat. Seems sort of like teflon, with powder and debris wiping off with just a little Ballistol.

    I only have about 1,500 rounds through the gun. It's held up fine thus far, but I can't really speak as to the long term durability of the finish.
