I have a Don Hume leather holster made for a Beretta 92 full size.
It also fits my CZ75b sa like it was made for it.
As always, YMMV

Never made much sense to me to have a SAO competition pistol with a firing pin block. That's not to say it isn't a nice gun, I just wonder if that's why it didn't sell in enough numbers to stay in the lineup.

It makes sense if you're a foreign company that has to meet the  U.S. import "points" requirements needed to legally import a gun to the U.S.

That's why the 85 Combat -- which didn't have a firing pin safety --had adjustable sights: to meet the point requirements.

That said, I bought a used 75B SA (9mm) from a forum member some years back, which had been worked over by a local gunsmith, and that gun was so smooth/slick and refined that it was hard to tell there was a firing pin block or the extra linkage in the gun.  It apparently can be done.

Others just remove the linkage and do some work so that timing remains appropriate.  (Doing that is above my pay grade, but they pull it off.)

I liked the straight, two-way adjustable trigger and the extended beavertail.

Now a 85C slide on a 75B SA without fpb lifter would be nice!

:D

I love my two.  Both 40 cal.  9mm barrels from a SP01 work great with only a mag change.  Kadet kit is a natural.  3 cal , one frame.

Were you able to convert your 75SA to Da/sa?

The DAO CZs I've shot had VERY LONG trigger pulls.  If you are serious about such a conversion, you might want to check into something like the CGW trigger (pull) reduction kit...

I had a Sphinx 2000 (full-size) some years ago which had a glorious DAO trigger, but it was simply much LONGER than I cared for.    I eventually sold it -- since there was no way to get parts that could convert it to DA/SA.

The 75B SA has a unique and desirable frame/slide combination.  If you want that in a traditional da/sa polycoat gun, you need to get a SA and convert it.

With the 75 SAO it seems like you can make a pseudo 85 since you have the ambi-safeties.

Kinda... The 85 has the classic tang, the SA & stainless 75?s have the upswept beavertail in combination with the standard length dust cover.  A great feel/balance for slow fire or precision shooting (at least for me).
