Title: Your First CZ
Post by: Maynard on February 06, 2021, 07:41:48 PM
There's only one first and we all tend to remember our first one.

What was your first CZ?

My first was an '05 75B Matte Stainless that started the CZ journey.

A young local 'smith who has a love of all things 1911 tweaked it years later by adding a 10-8 ledge rear and a gold bead front sight.

CZ 75 Pre B.  Sadly let the President of the Gun Club at Yongsan Army Base purchase it and the 22 Kadet kit for the club.  Was the only DA/SA pistol on the range and was in constant demand for Army personnel trying to qualify with the then new M-9.  What a sweet trigger it had.

P07 DUTY in .40 S&W.

Had just had more issues with the full sized M&Ps and was looking for a change.  Went to a gun show to look at the Sig pistols and make a decision on one of those.  Got to looking at them and asking questions and found out all those levers didn't contain a safety, so I changed my mind to look for something else.  Ran across that DUTY P07 and bought it.  Took it to the range, shot a better group right out of the box than any of the other various brands of pistols I'd bought in the previous 10 or 12 years.  Still carry it today.

It did grow into more though.  That's what they do.

Been modified some since then.  DI RMR with slide machined/cerkoted by Primary Machine (back up sight work by them, too).  Couple years ago I put a CGW reduced power trigger return spring and firing pin block spring in it, as well as a CGW firing pin retaining pin.  Put a set of FDE talon grip panels on it, too.

How well does it still shoot?  When I'm having a bad day with another brand of pistol trying to find something that shoots good groups I'll get frustrated badly enough to pull the P07 out of the holster and put tear up the X ring with it.  Then I know it's not me just having a bad day.

Sorry, the only pic I have of the P07 by itself is the sweaty picture.  Man is was hot that day.

My first CZ "type" pistol was an old TZ milsurp pistol with alot of wear and tear but shot great. The first real CZ was a CZ50 in 32acp. After that I got a 75B in 40. Then a 75D Compact and many more CZ's and clones since.

Purchased three of these BNIB at the same time in 1985, learned about them from Delta Force members on station.

Why three? They were only $225 each at our gun club and two years later I imported them stateside.   
Still own them and are bone stock.

I lived in Chile as an expat back in 1995 and had a colleague who used to be a Lt Colonel in the army. Knowing my interest in firearms he took me shooting at an army range, where I had the opportunity to try a full auto FAMAE, very nice gun built locally under a Sig license.

Their issue pistol was the CZ 75, and I asked if I could buy a new one from the army. No problem he said and arranged for the paperwork. I took it back home (Switzerland) when I left Chile. Serial number was Y 3865, built 1994 I think.

Stupidly I sold it to a colleague who kept badgering me, and regretted it for a long time.

But in 2018 I made it right and bought this 1986 pre B CZ 75, made in Csechoslovakia,  lightly used but in very good condition, for the equivalent of $ 500.-

My first CZ is the UGT SP-01 shown here. My exposure to the brand came about from a fellow range member who asked me what I was shooting. I was shooting my P229 .357 Sig. "Ever shoot one of these?" he asked. Nope. No idea what it was. Shooting his 75BD was the beginning of my love affair with the CZ brand pretty much as soon as I held it.

I found the SP-01 in a local gun store for $629.00. I did not hesitate buying the gun. I was shooting it more than any other gun I own up until 2020 came about. My 97BD and 75D Compact are 1B & 1C. Or 1A & 1B. Or, you get the picture.

Some fine looking firearms you guys have!(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210211/abadaa7e3d04f1248fa104f7ca55061b.jpg)

Just ordered a CZ 75 Compact. It'll be my first real CZ.

I've tried out the Shadow Blue, Orange, and a tooled 75 Compact and I love all of them.

One day though, I will own a short rail. It'll be the center piece of my collection.

This is my first and, at the time, what I thought would be my only CZ.  Had CZC add the barrel bushing and optic cut.  Swapped out the original barrel for a CZC threaded match barrel.  Added all of the CGW goodies and a Shadow 2 mag release.  Shown with LOK palm-swell bogies.

As an MP in Africa for the U.S. Army i carried a 1911 in 45 acp and a model 97 winchester shotgun off post. when i retired from my civial job in 2011 i decided to buy me another pistol as my retirement gift. Went looking at the lgs and found my cz p-01 and bought it. smoothed the action,put cgw parts internally, new sights and grips and got it how i like it. in 2018 we moved to Florida and decided i needed another cz to make up for all the stuff i sold when relocating. Bought a sp-01 safety model and modified it very similar to my original first purchase. The best thing i did in the move was maybe not the new cz pistol but rather packing 2000 rds of Winchester white brass and bringing it to Florida with me.

My first CZ was a Cajunized SP-01. I loved it so much I decided to go away from the 1911 platform and went with a 97B. About a month after that a friend of mine told me about the Target Sport line of CZ’s. I did some research and decided on a TSO, which I picked up Friday. I can’t wait to take it out and show it off to my shooting buddies. It’s got to be the best trigger I’ve ever had!!

Very first CZ was a CZ-83 in .380 - close to 20 yrs ago.  Bought it principally for my wife as it was one of the few semi-autos she could rack (very petite gal).  Fun and accurate gun to shoot, albeit in 9x17mm.  Came close then and over the years to getting a CZ-75, but I have hipowers too, so didn't bite then.  Yesterday I picked up a new CZ P-07 urban grey SR 9mm.  I'll comment on that in another thread ( and hope to shoot it this weekend)

Very little. Something along the lines of being extremely great shooters w/ nice accuracy, were way too inexpensive and that they were highly sought for in the States but unable to obtain.
Pretty much small on words that spoke volumes. 

Once the shop replenished the seven the team wiped out, I was able to make my purchase. Never gave them any attention until that brief conversation.

The CZ rifle line use to be one of the better kept secrets in the gun industry. Not so much any more. Picked up my first non rifle CZ a couple of years ago, one of the stainless 75B, I'm a lefty so in the pistol line there is a bit less to choose from.

Title: Re: Your First CZ

75 B Mil in 2001.  'Nuff said.  I've talked about this one ad infinitum, if you are able to see all of the old posts.  I walked into Whittaker's to buy a BHP, and I left with that pistol, a case of 9x19mm S&B, Lee 9x19mm reloading dies, and a case of WSP primers.  I had plenty of Alliant Unique and IMR SR 4756.  I may have also bought a pound of Alliant Power Pistol on that occasion, but I think that was my next trip.  I came back in 2-3 weeks and bought a 97 B.  Up until then, my only handguns had been a S&W 64, an FEG PA-63, and an FEG GKK.  (My old user name was FEG.) 

Before CZ, I used to reload .38 Special, .45 ACP, and 12 ga., but not much else (occasional .308, etc.)  Believe it or not, that 75 B Mil got me into handloading in a big way, because it performed RADICALLY differently with 124 gr. bullets at 1,100 -1,200 fps.  To clarify, you could buy a box of 9x19 115 gr FMJ for $5.00 or less, all day long at that time!  (In case quantities, $85-$90 before shipping wasn't that big of a deal for good "foreign" brass-cased 9mm, like S&B, PMP, etc.)  NO ONE was reloading 9x19mm.  I still don't know why, but that CZ got me interested in the actual potential and limitations of handloading 9mm. 

As anyone who knows me can tell you, the 9x19mm cartridge is my real passion.  I love me some CZs, but I have owned a lot of other 9mm pistols over the years.  OTOH, the only 9mms I own today are not only all CZs, but all various versions of the 75/85 series. 

I am sort of mad, because I really wanted to pick up a Walther PPQ when they were still ridiculously cheap.  Oh well...

I’m fairly new to the World of CZ, my first one was the P-09. Outstanding pistol.

After so many have written here, I'll also add my two cents.
My first CZ is a P07 and it will probably remain my only one. 
On the one hand, this is due to the German gun law, which basically allows a hunter to have two handguns.  For a third or more, you have to prove a need to the weapons authority, which a hunter rarely succeeds in doing. 
My second handgun is a Walther P5 compact. 
In addition, for the P07 I also have a change system in caliber . 22 lr.  Exchange systems of the same or smaller caliber than the basic weapon can be acquired without a need test.
And to be honest, I don't need any other handguns in addition to the ones just mentioned. 
I am very satisfied with the P07 in terms of reliability and accuracy as well as handling and wear resistance.  The latter relates in particular to the finish of the slide, which is much more wear-resistant than the blueing of my 30-year-old Walther P5 compact.
The change system . 22lr to the P07 is also reliable and durable. 
The only reason to get a second CZ pistol would be a sub-compact model of the P07.  Such a CZ model could tempt me to replace my Walther P5 compact.
BTW The CZ P07 replaced in 2018 a Walther P4, which I owned since 1987.

P 09 .40 cal.   Went into a shop looking to buy a used .40 with nothing in particular in mind. They had the a CZ, I had never heard of them. The salesman said "they have sort of a cult following".   Held it and thought it seemed nice. Well that was 20 something CZ's ago. Most recent, bren2  5.56 11".

My first CZ was a plain 75BD. I liked it well enough, but after I bought an SP-01 Tactical, it was kind of redundant.

Less Han a month later, I picked up a CZ 97B with the satin finish. Nice gun, but a bit too fancy for regular (or competition) use, so I sold it.

Fast forward 15 years: I still have the SP-01, but recently added a P-07, 97BD, and a P-01.  I think my CZ handgun collection is complete for the moment...but there may be a CZ 527 calling my a,e somewhere!  ;)

My first CZ was a CZ 75B Cold War edition.  I have since acquired a CZ Sharptail, and a Shadow 2.

First and only. '07 85 Combat. I think the satin nickle finish was discontinued the next year. I got to try it (dry fire) side by side with a 75B and BD but went with the nicer feeling trigger of the Combat.


Edit: well looks like I dont know how to post an image.

Funny enough this pic won me like 5 MecGar mags and some other merch but I've never seen it in there media or anything.(https://ibb.co/HYCvNgK) https://ibb.co/HYCvNgK

I just purchased a new PCR. I am a long time shooter, certified pistol instructor and FFL. I have been through a good pile o guns but a good friend who is a CZ-aholic let me fondle a few of his Cajunized CZs and I had to have one of my own! If I can figure out to post pics on this forum I will share a few. Until then, we’ll it looks just like a new PCR. 😎😊😉👍🏻
