Okay so Im gonna sell my Sig 239 in .40 and get either a CZ P-01 or a CZ 75bd. I've handled a P-01 and loved it. Not many dealers have CZ pistols around here so I havent found a 75 yet to play with. I know the 75 is a great gun but just not sure which to buy. Anyone have any input particularly if you own/owned or used either. Thanks.
I have a PCR and a 75bd...both very reliable and accurate, with a slight accuracy advantage going to the 75bd. The BD's are cheaper, and it is easier to get hi-cap mags for the full size models (B/BD/SA) than the PCR/P01, although 10 round 40 cal mags from pro mag will work just fine with 9mm ammo (wink, wink). If you're going to carry concealed, go for the p01, otherwise my preference is for the full size bd model.
ive had a CZ 75 since 1991 and about 25000 rounds through it (broke two slide releases due to a "HOT" lot of Blue Dot" but other than that no probs) and im very happy with it, other handgun is a Glock which im very happy with too.
Id go for the full size model as im not too fond of smaller handguns, even for concealed carry theyre usually ok (unless u want to carry a desert eagle lol) unless you are a short/thin person
Yes the Sig is a great pistol and Sig makes great quality handguns. I'm selling the 239 because I bought it primarily for cc but now have the oppurtunity to do more target shooting. The .40 in this small package is a bit too much for me after 3-4 magazines. I simply don't shoot it well and think I would benefit from a 9mm on a heavier or larger platform. Also around here .40 ammo is about twice the price of 9mm. A Sig 228 or 226 could fit my bill quite nicely but they are significantly more expensive than the P-01 or 75db. I got a chance to shoot some CZ's in Czech ( my brother in-law is friendly with the local constablery) and knew I needed to own one. The testing done on the P-01 is quite impressive and if its a "improvement" over the 75, count me in. Basically thats it. The Sig is for sale. If anyones interested PM me. Thanks for the replies. Oh and JoaMei if you wanna talk about ugly firearms HighPoint is hard to beat.
