Well, I made a post several weeks ago about ordering a SS CZ-75B 9mm. Today was the first day out for the new CZ and I wanted to give a review from my standpoint on what I think about the gun. First off, I was really impressed with the aesthetics of the gun right outta the box. This is a fine looking gun. Mine is the matte stainless version with fixed, blackened combat sights. The grips are black but are of rubber instead of plastic, which allows a good purchase on the grip. Magazines are 16-round capacity and she shipped with two, which are blued in finish. From what I can find, CZ doesn't ship these with stainless mags, at least not yet. The stainless model differs from the poly coated (black) model in that it has an ambi safety whereas the black model is left side only for righties. Fit and finish are top notch. This gun feels good in the hand. As is ususal with all guns I buy, I did the cursory breakdown and cleaning prior to today's range trip. The rails and hammer rail have a coppery anti seize compound out of the box. I dry cycled the gun about 50 times prior to breakdown to start the smoothing process then thoroughly cleaned all areas with Hoppes. After drying, I then coated the rails, hammer rail, barrel locking lugs, sear and hammer hooks with my favorite lube, Weaponshield Grease. It's a mild grease that smells good and slicks these guns right up. The gun appeared well finished throughout and I found no mfg. debris to remove. At the range I took only Winchester white box, 115gr. FMJ ammo. This is my ritual to use ball to do the initial break-in. So today, 100 rds. Winchester range ammo. In addition, I just received two Mecgar 16 round mags in the mail, of which I took for function check also. Range Report: The gun and all mags, factory and Mecgar, functioned 100% with the WWB ammo. No failures of any type to report. She likes to shoot a few inches high at 25 yards so I used a 6 o'clock hold which put 'em right dead center. Groups were good for a new service gun. Double action pull is average in quality compared to other DA guns like the Beretta 92. A little gritty yet but not bad. The sad news is, the single action trigger is NASTY. Very gritty, stagey and long. With a good SA trigger, groups would easily be half dollar sized at 25 benched. As is, about twice that. What I'll do is rate the gun by points I think are worthy to give the reader some insight into the platform. I'll use 1 for being horrible but serviceable and 5 being being best out-of-box. Feel in the hand...5 (Like it was made for me. Not as fat as a Beretta) Trigger Reach in DA mode...2 (too far forward for my comfort) Trigger reach in SA mode...5 Placement of Controls...4 (should be set back another 1/4) Sights...4 Mag retention...5 (no accidental dropping) Mag Drop Free...5 (slides out freely) Perceived recoil...5 (low recoil) Ejection of empties...5 (positive and in a tight pattern) Overall ease of operation...4 Accuracy...4 ( already good but a smooth trigger will do wonders) The gun points very naturally. With longer fingers, DA wouldn't be an issue. Since I love cocked and locked, I can get by that. I can still reach it in DA, but it could be better. Already, after about 300 dry-fires on a snap cap after the range today, the SA trigger is smoothing up nicely. In short, I'm glad I bought it. It's a beautiful gun that definitely feels up to the task of plinking and serious defense. My overall opinion is a DEFINITELY BUY IT.
