The CZ75B is one of those platforms that carries with it a huge crowd of fanboys and critics. This is for good reason. The pistol itself has a storied history with a list of upgrades and improvements in manufacturing and construction to keep it relevant to the times. Today the CZ75B kind of lingers in that realm of niche and classic since lately the craze is either polymer frames or lighter Aluminum frames instead of the CZ75’s cast steel frame. It weighs in at about the same weight as the Beretta M9, and carries the weight well for the size.
Although the CZ75B is not as light, and simple as more recent designs, the advancements in manufacturing and design have done wonders. The inclusion of a firing pin drop safety was the first big step to keeping it relevant, in my opinion. Then, the redesign of the trigger system to the Omega system was the best thing for the platform overall to keep it on Parr with current designs. And lastly, the convertible Omega series that is currently on the market, is probably the icing on the cake that will guarantee the CZ a place along side all the current pistol designs for decades to come.
In this article, the main subject is on the basic CZ75B Omega. After 2,000 rounds, I feel that it is properly broken in and has gotten to the point that it will be at until a part breaks, which shouldn’t be for a long while. The pistol has performed flawlessly from the start. I can’t tell you how happy I am with how well it functions, how smooth it is, and how easy it is to shoot well. I think you will also find this to be the case as well. The other thing I liked about the pistol is the trigger system being simplified so I can work on the internals and do maintenance on it myself with relative ease. It sure is one of the best metal framed combat pistols out there, even with all the other competition and current designs. You would be doing yourself a disservice to not at least try one out and experience it for yourself.
