CZ 75B Compact (Stainless Steel) Handgun- Short Review

4

CZ 75B Compact in stainless steel is a very good handgun. It is a small sized pistol with performance characteristics of full framed handguns. The pistol is sheer beauty and a treat to shoot. I have owned a CZ 75 P07 Duty and CZ 75 B at one time or another but the CZ 75B Compact I have found to be much better than both these handguns. It is an excellent choice for conceal carry (CCW).

Before I say something about its looks, innards and all let’s first have a look at its specs.

  • Caliber: 9 x 19 mm
  • Capacity: 14 rounds
  • Weight: 2.0 lbs
  • Height: 5.0 inches
  • Length: 7.2 inches
  • Width: 1.8 inches
  • Barrel Length: 3.8 inches
  • Trigger: SA/DA
  • Sights: Fixed
  • Frame: Steel
  • Grips: Plastic
  • Safety: Manual, Firing pin safety and stop on hammer
  • Color: Black Polycoat

It comes packed in a cardboard outer box.

2

The plastic case holds the gun.

3

You will find the handgun, two mags, barrel cleaning rod, barrel brush and instructions manual inside the box.

5

Observe the CZ 75B competition hammer. This comes as an accessory. It reduces creep and smoothens the trigger.

6

I found the single hand grip is very comfortable.

8

The double hand grip is even better.

9

Not small on size.

9a

The slide pulled back.

9b

Observe the custom grips, original is all Black.

9c

I got these Tritium night sights installed. These come as an accessory.

9d

See the comp hammer and night sights. The handgun has manual safety which when applied has a safety stop on hammer and also a firing pin safety.

9e

I got a Rubber Base pad on one mag. It results in improved grip that is comfortable.

9f

The handgun disassembled.

9g

The frame. The greyish stuff is White Lithium grease.

9h

The slide. I found the workmanship to be of very good quality. No tooling marks whatsoever.

9i

The barrel.

9j

9l

Magazine Rubber base pad.

The pistol can be carried with a round chambered and manual safety applied. Just release the safety to fire in Single Action mode. It can also be manually de-cocked for a Double Action shot, this means no need to take off the safety in emergencies.

I have found the size and grip very comfortable. The trigger is smooth as is the case with all CZ handguns, and with a competition hammer the creep further reduced it becomes super smooth for accurate firing. It can easily be concealed and carried for self defense.  The CZ 75B is sheer beauty and a pleasure to shoot. In Pakistan it is retailing from Rs 85,000 to 100,000 depending on where you buy it from and off course your bargaining skills. But hey, this is one handgun you don’t want to miss. Small in size, big in performance, that’s CZ 75B Compact.

    1. Dear Olikara,
      we live in dangerous times. The handgun is purely for self defense. With proper training a handgun is not dangerous.
      Cheers 🙂

  1. Very interesting and informative review. I own a sub-compact CZ 75 BD Rami, the one with a decocker instead of a manual safety.

    1. Brother, since the import ban on weapons by the previous Government not many guns have come in to Pakistan. CZ guns are excellent quality guns and best value for money. Please say Glock, and I say forget Glock and go for CZ. you will be lucky to find and used one but the price will be above Rs 250k, now.
      Cheers
