Well I couldn't help myself. They had CZ-75 .40 S&W on sale for $399 so I bought one to go along with my 9mm. I think I'll shoot it a bit and then sent it off to Angus for sights and a little work. It comes in Tues. I need to buy ammo. Lots and lots of ammo.

The CZ 75B in .40 caliber was my first CZ. Since then, I've added a few other CZs to my collection. It's still my favorite full size .40 as it handles the .40 "snap" as well as any .40 I've shot.

I've even carried it concealed at time although it's a tad large to carry concealed in the summer months.

Hi Mike- I've shot the tactical sport in .40 and loved it. I'm looking forward to shooting it, don't know if I'll convert it to s/a only or keep it as is. Here's my 9 mm in s/a only:

Howdy Mr. Gib,

Congradulations on getting a 75B in 40. While I normally carry mine in SA mode by choice, there may well be times when I will opt to go hammer down/safety off ala DA first shot. I do not know how well or poorly the trigger reach is for you on your 40, but the silver trigger than came on mine was a bit long to be comfortable to me.

One of the things I asked Mr. Angus to do while working on my 75B 40 was to install the black SP-01/01 trigger in mine. To me it made a substantial difference in giving me a very comfortable DA trigger reach now. I just wanted to mention that option for anyone who has shorter fingers like I do. There is a solution that helps to reduce the DA trigger reach.

Enjoy your pistol sir, and we look forward to your thoughts once you have been able to shoot her some.

Thanks Two Guns-
I'll look into the shorter trigger. With the shorter trigger, did it seem to increase trigger pull weight?

Howdy Mr. Gib,

Sorry sir I can not answer your question for you. While Mr. Angus was installing the trigger, he was also doing one of his amazing action jobs on my pistol as well. My shooting buddy, Mr. John, fired my 75B both pre and post Angus. He is impressed enough with both the trigger and the action work, that he wants to get one and have Mr. Angus work his same magic for him as well.

I often hear folks on the CZ forum complain about the factory actions on CZ pistols. But frankly I have not felt the factory action was really a problem. But I do have to admit that both my 75B 40 and the SP-01 had action work by Mr. Angus, and they were both well worth the wait and the money. If I buy more CZ pistols in the future, I have already spoken to Mr. Angus, and he has agreed to work his magic on them as well.

On my 75B, in addition to swapping out the trigger, he also replaced the hammer as part of his action work. So there is no way I could really compare the factory with the Angus pistol, as there was much more involved that just the trigger change.

In case you or other members are interested in have work done of your CZ pistols, Mr. Angus does two different levels of work - one I will call a "carry job" and one designed for competitive shooters. I requested the "carry" job on both pistols and am very pleased with the end results.

Sorry I can not answer your question, but it would be like trying to compare apples to oranges.

A s/a only CZ is one that I haven't added to my collection ... yet. When I get the urge for s/a, I go to my Hi-Powers or my 1911's. ;)
