I agree. The CZ has one of the most ergonomic grip of any pistol, the Beretta, not so much. CZ magazines aren't very expensive either. Mec-Gar makes them and the prices are reasonable and the quality excellent.
Had both. Prefer the Beretta. Agree with Neon Horse. The Vertec grip on the M9A3 fits me like a glove. I'm a Sig fan but the M9A3 is so good I got rid of my Sig P226's. My CZ75 was a compact version. Good pistol but it didn't wow me. Full disclosure I also have an older 92FS and a newer PT96. I came back around to Beretta 92/96 after about a 20 year hiatus. I'm a big fan these days. YMMV
Own a CZ 75 sp01. CZ points well for me, I shoot it better than other semi autos, it's all steel which I like but makes it heavier, trigger is good and can be made better. Have a lgs that has good prices on CZ.
Would like a Beretta 92 but once I bought my CZ I haven't been motivated to buy another 9 mm semi auto. I've shot a 96 that had been improved. CZ fits me better and points well.
I'm not sure you can go wrong. Get the one you like.
I've owned a couple Beretta 92Fs …. excellent guns but I really like my CZ 75b better so the Berettas found a new home. Partly because my 75B is stainless steel but mostly because it is the least ammo fussy 9mm pistol I have ever seen. I have fired many different brands of ammo, different bullet weights, some reloaded, some commercial factory loads and some Mil-surp ammo. I've never has a single malfunction of any sort. I can't say the same about the 92F because it has jammed on me several times.
One of the really nice features of the 75b is … you can use it like a conventional DA pistol where it is carried with the hammer down and a round chambered, DA first shot, SA second and after …. or you can carry it like a 1911 with the hammer cocked, round chambered and safety on. I like this mode because the first shot and all other shots are single action. Accuracy wise, I think my CZ edges out the Beretta by just a little. My CZ came with checkered rubber grips …. not my cup of tea so I ordered a nice set of laser checkered wood grips than look nicer but mostly they feel great. Just recently, I bought the sister to my CZ 75b …. a CZ P07 …. also a 9mm with an Omega trigger but with a polymer frame. I've had a CZ P40 for several years (40 S&W), which is also an excellent pistol. I don't think you can go wrong with either the Beretta or the CZ …. get the one that fits you best.
I have shot both but owned neither. I preferred the CZ mainly because of the differences in the single action trigger pull. Both DA pulls are similar, but the SA of the CZ is shorter, while the SA of the Beretta was as long as the DA (though lighter).
I also like the idea of being able to carry condition 1
The CZs are something of an ergonomic wonder. They seem to fit everyone. They are the only pistols besides 1911s that feel right to me, even though they are nothing like the 1911. I like the 75B, but I also like the P-07, and in general I do not like plastic guns, but the P-07 handles like a dream. I'm not that crazy about the trigger on the 75B but I can still shoot it accurately. I love the trigger on the P-07.
I do not own a Beretta, because it is too clunky for me. Not as clunky as a Block, er, I mean Glock though.
My vote for the CZ. Big fan of the SP01. Love the ergonomics and trigger.
That being said I have a CZ clone the Canik P120. A bit smoother and better trigger than my former 92 and my buddies SP01. The 92 just doesn't fit my hand nearly as well.
I am thinking about getting a Heritage .22 revolver for my wife just for plinking. I was told 2 different answers. I bought Armscor Precision .22LR Ammunition 36 Grain High Velocity Hollow Point. Will this work in this weapon? The guy at the store said no, although he admittedly said he did...
I went to my gun shop today to look at the SR9. My dealer also had the Springfield XD 4". He disassembled the Glock, Springfield XD and SR9. The SR9 feels thin and light. The Springfield had a better feel on the grip. Which gun is the better direction?
I braved the black flies and went out to my backyard range today.. I put 50 down the pipe of my new P365XL and am very satisfied with the performance. It shot flawlessly and I was able to maintain a 3" grouping which I find satisfactory considering this is my first experience with a 9MM...
My wife showed a keen interest in a Kimber Micro .380 when we were over wintering in Florida. We looked and handled them at a gun show in late February. When we got back to Michigan in early May we made arrangements to purchase one. I purchased a new handgun (Sig P365XL) at the same time and...
