sig p225 vs. CZ 75b

I have looked at almost every pistol out there and have narrowed my self down to sig p225 w/4 clips $650 or the CZ75b for $450 and everybody else's favorite the xd at or around $525 all new .



Price not being the deciding factor between the three, which is the best pistol? They all feel good to me however I am leaning toward the sig because I like sigs but the cz feels great and everybody raves about the pistol.



I am going to use the pistol for uspsa and idpa matches and general carry/defense piece. If I really get into the match shooting I'll pick up something else for match shooting (sig x5) but until then, I want a good all around gun that is accurate.



I shot a glock 21 recently and put 30 rounds in a 2" circle at 20yards. if that helps anyone. I have owned 1911's in 45 and 10mm in the past (20 years ago) and am just getting back into the sport.

sig p225 vs. CZ 75b

Hello. Of the pistols you mention, my preference would be the CZ-75B though I do own a SIG-Sauer P225. While the P225 is a bit shorter in both length and height, the CZ is not hard to carry concealed, especially using an IWB holster. I think that its longer sight radius, cocked-and-locked capability and all-steel construction might be a tad more shooter-friendly in the IDPA matches you mention.



The XD's are darned nice shooters based on the few that I've shot in .45 and the one I owned in 9mm. I like the gun quite a lot, I am not enthralled at having to send it back to Springfield if anything, even minor gets out of whack or needs replacing.



Welcome to the site and best to you and yours.

edphd,



Tough choices.

A "real" P225 is a fine carry pistol and I love mine. Size wise it's about as perfect a carry pistol as you could want. Plus it's only about 27 ounces empty. Mag capacity will be 8+1. If they want $650. for a P6 and four mags walk away as the P6 can be had for about $400.

The CZ-75 is superb. I loved mine, but sold it because the controls just didn't work for me. My problem not CZ's. It will give you more magazine capacity (about 15), but will be much heavier. Believe me, eight or ten ounces can make a big difference lugging it all day.

NEVER had a stoppage with the P225 or the CZ-75, but prefer the a 1911 platform or Browning Hi-power to either.

XD's? OK, I guess. Limited experience with them. I'm at a point where I just don't like carrying tupperware, but if it works for you go for it.

Any of the three will make a credible carry piece.



Wes

Either will do you just fine. 9mm is less expensivel, so you can afford more practice time. Also a 9mm pistol will have a greater mag capacity which can be an advantage. Having said that I really like the 40 cal. and use a Glock 23 for IDPA matches and for self defense.



If I was going to purchase a cz-75 I would probably get it in 9mm though. The pistol was originally intended to shoot this round so . . . .

I am leaning towards 9 now that I am researching the CZ. I noticed today when looking at the gun at another store that there is a new model the CZ 75 SP-01 which is suppossed to be the latest greatest.



Does anyone know if it is better than a 75b ?

edphd,



If you like the P225, but are leaning toward a CZ I'd take a look at the PO-1. About the same weight and size, but with excellent ergonomics and a decocker vice having to manually lower the hammer or carry cocked and locked.

None of you choices are bad, IMHO.

I would lean toward a 9mm considering how ammo prices are going...

I agree with Wes both in the 9mm and the price of the Sig. 9mm is the way to go for shooting on a budget. You can get Sig police trade-ins refurbished, with a factory warranty for about $375.



*Up date on the Sig 225 price. I checked today and the price at Turners is now $440. They may go back on sale at a later time.

Howdy Mr. Edphd,



Sorry for the delayed response, but I have been off the site for too long, but am back now.



I own two CZ75Bs, both in 40, and one SP-01 in 9mm. The primary difference I see between the two models is the grip shape. The 75B is more straight to me, while the SP-01 has a more curved backstrap. At least it feels more curved to me. So I would say handle both is possible, and go with the one that feels the best to you.



The SP-01 also has a tactial rail, while the 75B does not. That may or may not be of importance to you.



The SP-01 also normally comes with an 18 round 9mm mag, as this model from what I understand was geared towards competitive shooters primarily. But those 18 round mags also fit and function prefectly in a 75B as well - so mag capacity should not cause you to choose one model over the other.



If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask. Again, sorry for the long delay in posting this comment. Hope it helps anyway.
