The 75D PCR was the most comfortable gun to handle, and on first impression it was a strong favorite. It is the right size for the hand, has a manageable weight, offers good sight radius, and presents a no-snag three-dot sight system. All levers and buttons are accessible without being obtrusive or prone to accidental function.
The 75D (decocker model) features a soft-rubber variation of CZ's palm swell-style grips with diamond shaped checkering. The frame with grips installed weighs just less than 10 ounces, and at a total weight of 26 ounces, this CZ was the lightest gun.
The single action trigger included a noticeably rough travel before it broke. We inspected the mechanism and found the cause to be to the contact between the hammer and the final lever in the single-action chain of command.
