Looking for an anniversary present and really like the feel of a CZ 75. Give me some pros and cons for each. For instance, does the decocker significantly affect the trigger?
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 9:56:03 AM EDT
If you're going to shot USPSA Production or IDPA, get the D... the decocker goes to half-cock, allowing for an easier first-shot pull than manually lowering the hammer all the way (as required by the rules) on the B.

If not, just get the B and carry it cocked-and-locked like God intended.

No, but if you want to get a trigger job done I have been heard it is easier with the standard B model. With that being said, it is all up to you with whether or not you like cocked and locked and traditional da/sa. For me, I prefer the BD model, since I don't do cocked and locked, and the hammer isn't shaped in a way that makes manually decocking it with a live round very safe IMO. Maybe if they had the old spur hammer of the pre B models, but in it's current state, I wouldn't recommend it. So, the question remains, do you prefer the action on sigs and Berettas or 1911 and high powers.

ETA: also, if you have a chance to play around with the B model, I would as well. I have heard people on this sight that like 1911's, but say that the safety on the cz 75 doesn't work for them due to its size and location. I can't attest to that since I don't have that model.

The B has a slightly better trigger to start with and it has more upgrade options.

I voted BD, but is a P09 out of the question?

No decocker!!
Only reason I traded my p-01 was cause I hated the DA/SA trigger with the decocker

In the non-omega guns I like the safety model just because you're stuck with whatever you pick and you can manually decock if you want. I like the idea of the poster above me of a P09 since you can go back and forth and use whatever you feel like.

I voted B or another model that has the thumb safety.

Personal preference. I don't do decockers, cocked and locked is how I carry them.

If you are going to always carry hammer down, then the decker may be better for you.

It costs more, doesn't it? Also, I have enough plastic guns. I'd probably take the P09 if it was as cheap and the mags were cheaper too.

They're under $500. Mags aren't as cheap as normal 75 mags, but they're not out of line compared to many other pistols.

Should also add this won't be a carry gun. It will be a range toy/extra gun to arm someone when the zombies come.
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 10:17:59 AM EDT
Shit, if it's a range toy and not a carry gun, then why would you need a decocker? Get a manual safety gun and drop in a SAO trigger and the CZ competition hammer.

I can put the standard safety off with my thumb, but put it back on with my trigger finger (ambi safety).

Will probably switch to the TS/SA type safety levers soon. I asked once if anyone had tried them both and if it was a significant improvement but got no answers.

One thing to think about with the 75B is that I think the standard models in 9mm come with a single side safety. I don't know for sure, but I don't think you can just use one side of the TS/SA safety. So, if you wanted to use TS/SA safety you should either buy a TS/SA or get a base gun that will accommodate the upgrade.

I would try to handle a p07 or p09 before you decide. I am downright obsessed with my p07 and am on the hunt for an 09. The trigger is amazing out of the box. edit: for a poly gun that sells for $440.
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 10:40:39 AM EDT
You've already said you don't plan to carry it, so I'd go with the B.

As others stated, if you intend to carry a CZ-75, decide if you want it cocked and locked (B) or hammer down (BD), and then the decision is easy.
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 10:44:05 AM EDT
The trigger on the decocker isn't as nice as the B model. I voted B.
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 11:00:19 AM EDT
Non-decocker CZs are vastly easier to work on.
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 11:40:27 AM EDT
Damn, you guys almost have me talked into the P09.

The 75 is among the best pistols in the world. The P09 isn't even on the radar.

The DA trigger pull on the CZ BD models is not as long as you find on other guns so it is not a bad choice either.
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 1:49:47 PM EDT
CZ B
Link Posted: 4/28/2014 2:28:59 PM EDT
I voted for the B. I shoot with my thumb on the safety so decockers don't work for me.
