CZ 75 B 9mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The 16-shot CZ 75 B bears a slight resemblance to the Hi-Power, but it won’t pinch the web of your hand. This double-action pistol can be carried cocked and locked, which solves problems for some who are required to pack a DA pistol. The matte-black finish was well done, and the entire gun seemed to be built to last. This design is at least 30 years old, with even older roots.

Compared to a full-size 1911 45 auto (left), the CZ is slightly smaller. With a full load of 16 heavy bullets, the CZ weighs more than the fully loaded 1911, but has 17 shots versus 9.
Takedown is simple, and the inside shows the similarity in lockup to that of a 1911, with grooves in the slide matching those on the barrel breech. Two 16-round magazines come with the gun.
