I've never owned a CZ fire arm before.

I finally got a chance to take a picture of my new CZ 75 Compact 9mm in Satin nickel.

I got it yesterday.





I can't wait to get to shoot it - this weekend I hope.

Congratulations. Excellent choice. I started with a 9mm P01 in May, shot ~3500 rounds without a single problem and am getting ready to get another one, this time a little bigger, for USPSA competition this coming spring.

You gonna love your new toy.

Don ... Congrats on your new 75 compact. I've had excellent results with the 2075 RAMI (3" barrel) and expect to add a full size 75 to my stable sometime next year. Make sure to give us a full range report with targets & pics

claybird is an unknown quantity at this point
CZ75 compact

Very good choice . I had one for seven years an a friend caught me in an off day and I sold it to him. Been sorry ever since.
Its a hungry gun, you will need it feed it lots of ammo.

Congratulations. CZ is a great weapon. I've had a 9mm RAMI that I've had and shot for years. One of my favorite guns that I would never part with. Has been 100% reliable, acccurate and fun to shoot. Your gonna love it. And the trigger just keeps getting better as you use it. Bob

RAMI .40 owner here to congrat ya on the Compact. I am a Ruger revolver lover, but in semi auto, it is all about the CZ for me. Good stuff.





P.S. nothing against Ruger semi's just that I like CZ's a lil better.

Wow, that's a beautiful gun.

I'm not familiar with that version although I've always admired the CZ75.

Could you share the specs? Thanks ...

This gun has a very interesting "safety" system.

In the owners manual it states -

"The only time the manual safety is engaged is if you want to carry it in condition 1 (cocked & Locked)".

You 1911 guys can relate to that.

The rest of the time

"the hammer should rest on the action or safety thumb of the hammer".

"the manual safety can not be applied when the hammer is not cocked"

I like this "Safety" system.

There is a safety 1/2 cock position - which is how I will carry it.

I have the CZ75B and P01 and the 97B these are my favorite semiautos.I did not know they had it in satin on the compact. Great looking pistola. I want a nickel or stainless CZ one day myself.
Congrats

Great choice, you won't regret it! The only three things I can recommend:

1. Have a gunsmith familiar with CZs smooth up the action, they can really be AMAZING.

2. Get a .22 Kadet conversion kit (they will work on the Compact)...and a lot of .22 ammo! Mine is threaded and suppressed, but it's certainly not necessary for having a ton of fun with this kit.


3. If you like wood grips, go to Hakan Pek (http://www.imageseek.com/hakan/). The grips on his two-tone CZ75 on the home page are mine, the lighting and white balance when I took my picture above was just different since they usually look red.

You will love that CZ. I have the full size CZ75B, and two Witness pistols, which are clones. Carrying in the half cock position will shorten the DA stroke, making an easier transition from DA/SA.

Good shooting!

Awards Showcase

I have noticed that once again if I hear from a CZ75 owner that they always have good things to hear about them.

Nice looking gun in the satin nickle finish. I don't know if they make them for the compact, but vz makes some nice grips if you ever wanted any.
