Czechmate or have a 2011 Built
« on: May 13, 2019, 07:36:39 PM »
On the fence, plus not enough of the $$$ in my account.

Anyone that has been using the Czechmate for competition, how has it gone? Is it comparable to the STI 2011 Open Guns? Has anyone regretted buying a CM instead of an off the shelf/built 2011 Open Gun? Curious.

Anyone?

Somebody must be using the Czechmate in Competition, someone?  ???

Just curious how it has worked for you, did you make any major changes? Have you considered maybe switching over to the 2011 Platform (blasphemy, I know). Been considering the CM, but not sure what to expect. Or should I move to something else.

I think you'd do better asking this question on Enos' forum.

So what are you saying? Get out of here and get lost?  :-[

Not at all, I just think you'll get more replies there. There actually aren't that many competitive shooters active here. Sorry if my post came off wrong, that wasn't my intention.

I thought you already bought the black 2011 CK from Johnsonian? Are you still going to keep your czechmate?

Czechmates are great guns and won’t hold you back (Robin Sebo goes alright with his).

But

There far more options for 2011’s, both guns & parts so that’s an easy route.

Full caveat: I am presently not an Open Division competitor. I am not ranked within USPSA. I do shoot a lot of nice, fast guns with some really top tier shooters.

I went with a Czechmate Parrot because of cost and familiarity. I can work on CZs already, and I could afford to buy one since it comes with so many parts and mags. The CM is the most accurate gun I've ever shot. I'm sure there are 2011s and other guns that are at least as accurate, but accuracy isn't the question.

Speed? You probably have more options for getting the red dot closer to the barrel on a 2011 so that the aim is more natural, and you probably have more options for compensators with a 2011.

Reliability? People say that a 1911/2011 can be made to run flawlessly. I fully believe that. However, the Czechmate runs flawlessly out if the box, requires no magazine tuning, and is significantly cheaper than an equivalent 2011. This is also true for the Tanfoglio version.

Trigger? Does it really matter when going full speed? I can't tell the difference between a $5k 2011 and my Czechmate when going full speed.

A very similar thread on Enos.  (https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/252267-czechmate-vs-2011/?tab=comments#comment-2807383)

Always pros and cons to each platform.  If you haven't joined Enos forums too, strongly recommended.  The CZ and Enos forums are my two go-to places!
