CZ 75B Slide

Post by 57js » 09 Dec 2011, 18:05

The CZ 75B slide is a little stiffer than other guns I have to rack. Will then get better with use, or should I expect it to be this stiff all the time?

Thanks.

Most springs loosen up over time, is it an after market spring? Brand new gun?
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

Brand new gun that I bought about a month ago, but the slide didn't get much use until today. I previously racked it a few times, but then today the gun was shot a fair amount. The 75B is completely stock.

Stock spring is powerful. Remember this is a COMBAT handgun. It is used to shooting +P and +P+.

If you want to break it in, use +P+ :)

Only way to break in a legit handgun.

Yes, I was only using the wimpy 124 grain standard ammo. I guess when it is time to buy some more ammo I will have to give the gun what it wants and give it the +P ammo. It might be a while since I stocked up on 9mm when the stores had their specials a few months ago.

Might just buy a box of the +P stuff to try out to see if it is worth using that as my standard ammo on the gun. I bought a fair amount of +P for my .38 special snub gun which didn't turn out too well.

I can definitely say that there was almost no recoil with the 124 grain ammo. That could be because it is a combat gun designed for stronger loads or the fact that I had just shot 10 mm and was used to that gun.

Too bad CZ doesn't make a 10mm.

What do you mean they don't?

Also don't forget about the CZ clone Witness. They come in 10mm.

I didn't know that CZ made a 10mm. I know about EAA's Witness and Witness Match 10mm as we had a discussion before about these guns. You guys recommended the Witness Match over the standard Witness. Is the CZ 10mm as good as the 9mm line?

Yes the only problem is that it's not a CZ platform but a 1911. CZ bought out Dan Wesson about 4 years ago. Completely re-tooled the entire production line.

didn't they discontinue the standard 10mm? The only 10mm I saw on their website was in the Dan Wesson Elite series. $3850 for the Dan Wesson Titan, 14 shot 10mm 1911.
