Picked up my first CZ pistol

Went the the local gunshop today and they had a excellent condition CZ75 Compact used for sale, took a look at it and decided i had to buy it, did a little research and its fairly uncommon

1994 build date, imported by AAL, square trigger guard, round trigger, serial #b2226, wood grips, in 99% condition. Going to shoot it tommorow!

I keep thinking about expanding my stable to include the CZ-75 compact and the 2075 Rami. Enjoy your new pistol.

I wouldn't say the Compact models are "uncommon" but right now all CZ pistols are seemingly less available maybe due to increased demand or maybe production schedule from CZ or both.

The all steel Compact models, which I think is the one you have, may also be a lower demand pistol than the lightweight compacts like the P-01 and PCR. You just don't see that many CZ's around right now, and when you do it is often the polymer P-07 or full size, all steel 75B.

Nice find, the c-z 75 compact is one of my favorite 9mm for the range. Just a bit heavy for CCW work but if push comes to shove it would work. I think you'll be very happy with the gun, enjoy.

+1 on what bossman said. I had a Compact 75 in nickel and it shot wonderfully but was a little heavy, IMO, for belt carry and a little large for AIWB carry.
Hey JimmyR, get an alloy Rami 9. It's similar in size to a Glock 26 (had one) but absolutely blows it away in feel. It also just happens to be the most accurate gun I've had, especially in SA mode.

E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.

Great pistol! I have the CZ P-01 which is essentially the same pistol, except mine has the alloy frame. That pistol is crazy accurate and fun to shoot! Congrats!

Be very careful when you put it away as CZ's have a tendency to multiply quickly!!

CZs are great, as others pointed out they are really accurate, and in my experience easy to clean and maintain. I
Ruger SR1911, Colt 1911, Glock 17, Glock 21, Beretta M9, Ruger GP100, Ruger LCR, SW M&P15, Lee Enfield 303, Savage .22, Ruger 10/22. Guns the great equalizer.

Don't get your hands on a tuned 97b. It'll be all over at that point.

The satin nickel 75 Compact is a bucket list gun of mine. Severely sexy design.
