Mine is the tactical version, and so has a decocker rather than a safety. I've been creeping around my darkened apartment (with the gun unloaded, of course), lining up the tritium night sights.

Shoots damn well, looks and feels sexy, and has amazingly low felt recoil. I do need to get thin aluminum grips though, since the damn thing is so large-framed in my little hand!
Dead sexy!

I think I want this to be my next gun since the Sigs and HKS are a bit too much $$$ for me I'm not sure if I want the decocker or a safety. I could make arguements for both... Wishful thinking at this point!

One question - what separates the CZ SP-01 from the CZ 75 BD?

I got the decocker version, and I've immediately learned that far fewer gunsmiths are willing to work on guns with decockers...so that may be a consideration. Also, you can't carry "cocked and locked" as you might with a gun w- a safety. I won't be carrying, so this isn't a concern for me. Otherwise, the decocker vs. safety debate seems to be on par with motorycle oil arguments...

As for 75 B/SP-01 comparisons, Wikipedia Sez:
CZ variants of the CZ 75 include:

CZ 75
The original CZ 75, easily identified by the curved trigger guard and spur hammer.
CZ 75B
Second-generation CZ 75 with internal firing pin safety, squared off trigger guard, and ring Hammer.

CZ 85
A completely ambidextrous CZ 75 variant.
CZ 85B
Second-generation version of the CZ 75B.
CZ 75 Compact
A standard CZ 75 with a slightly shortened grip and 3.9 inch barrel. There is now a version available chambered for the .40 S&W.
CZ 75 D PČR (Policie České republiky; The Czech state police) Compact
Very compact - similar to the P-01 in size, but lacks an M3 rail frame and features a smaller muzzle point and snag free sights. A popular choice for a carry weapon, known for its inherent accuracy and weight distribution.
CZ 75B SA
A CZ 75 which has a single action trigger mechanism and a drop free magazine. It is available chambered for 9 mm or .40 S&W.
CZ 75 P-01
A CZ 75 Compact variant intended for law enforcement use, with an aluminum alloy frame, decocker and under-barrel accessory rail. It is the new weapon of choice for the Czech National Police. It is one of the few (if not only) NATO classified handguns that is available to the public without modifications. It received NATO certification after undergoing extensive testing. Its NATO Stock Number (NSN) is 1005-16-000-8619. [3]
CZ 75 SP-01/SP-01 Tactical
Similar to the P-01 with accessory rail, but with all-steel construction and utilizing the full-size frame and slide as well as incorporating extended-capacity 19 round magazines. It is available with an ambidextrous manual safety (SP-01) or with an ambidextrous decocker (SP-01 Tactical). Used in the 2005 IPSC World Shoot XIV by World Champions Adam Tyc and Angus Hobdell (1st and 3rd place respectively in the production division).

CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow
New generation of CZ 75 SP-01 pistol especially adapted according to suggestions as proposed by users from Law Enforcement, Military and Police communities worldwide, with an additional input from the Team CZ shooters Angus Hobdell and Adam Tyc. Based on the SP-01, it has no firing pin block resulting in improved trigger travel. It also features a slightly reshaped grip and safety, a “weaker” recoil spring for easier loading, and fiber optic front sight and tactical “Novak style” rear sight.
CZ 75 Compact .40
Version similar to P-01 with accessory rail, but chambered in .40 S&W, and utilizing a steel instead of alloy frame. In place of P-01's decocker is an ambidextrous manual safety. Magazine capacity is 10 rounds.
CZ 75 Standard IPSC
A CZ 75 variant designed specifically for IPSC competition with extended grip, single-action trigger, heavy-duty free-falling magazines, and an enlarged magazine well. Now replaced by the CZ 75 Tactical Sport, available in 9x19mm (20 rounds) or .40 S&W (16 rounds).
CZ 75 Champion
A competition version designed for Open Class IPSC competition, with three port compensator, adjustable trigger, extended magazine release, ambidextrous safeties, fully adjustable sights and two-tone finish, with blued slide and satin nickel frame.
CZ 2075 RAMI
A subcompact version of the CZ 75 intended for concealed carry. Features a 3 inch barrel, aluminum frame and low-profile sights. Available in 9x19mm or .40 S&W, with standard magazine capacities of 10 (9 mm) and 8 (.40 S&W) rounds, respectively. An optional 14-round magazine is available for the 9 mm version.
CZ 75BD
A variant of the now-common CZ 75B (B standing for firing pin Block) with a decocker replacing the traditional manual safety. (D stands for Decocker). This variant is quickly becoming the most common of the CZ 75B models, due to the additional safety the Decocker safety provides.

CZ 75 Kadet
A .22 LR calibre version of the CZ 75, available as a complete gun or as a slide/barrel assembly and magazine kit to fit onto a standard CZ 75B frame.
CZ 75 FULL AUTO
A selective-fire variant introduced in 1992 intended for law enforcement and military use. One distinguishing characteristic of earlier models is its longer compensated barrel although later models may have a standard barrel. An extra magazine can be attached to the front to act as a makeshift foregrip.

My next pistol is gonna be a CZ75 single action.

Went shooting at the ranch for the first time in about a year. Took my boss, it was her first time shooting. She kept asking which one was best for zombies. She took a real shine to the MAK90.

What happened to Miran? He hasn't posted in the Militia in a long time. I would've figured all this talk about CZ's would've brought him out of the woodwork.

He's been focusing on other hobbies - like finding a job!

J/K Miran - I hope I'm not in your position in a few months...

Ah shit - I can get a .22 conversion for a CZ!?!? That would be PERFECT for me right now!!

Damn

Anyone know if I can go back on a gun purchase before the waiting period is up...like, say, on a Sig Mosquito? I doubt it...

Yeah, the dealer can cancel the DROS at any time between the start of the paperwork and the time you take ownership of the firearm. Not sure about Reeds policy on canceling purchases though. See, Zefflyn was right. You're addicted now.

I blame Zefflyn

On second thought, I'll switch it to the CZ and have a second 9mm and save up for the .22 conversion...

I'll have to call Reeds tomorrow to see what I can do. I'm sure they'll be a bit motivated since I want to upgrade my pistol...but maybe not.

I'm REAL glad Nemo brought this to my attention. Thanks!

I think the Sig was a good purchase. A conversion kit seems silly. Use the gun as it is intended IMO.

Alan, that photo inspired me to finally buy the pistol grip for the under ejecting brolin 37 KidRR gave me. $20, shipped! I'll take pix when it's done. I'm going to paint it OD Green I think? :P
