Around 7,000 full house rounds, with no signs of giving up the ghost quite yet!

Hot reloads..or Double Tap 165/ 180 Gold Dots are what I feed it .

I've got two CZ Clones that I'm particularly happy with.

The first is factory stock, but feels and shoots like a custom gun -- a Sphinx Compact. Wonderful trigger, superior fit and finish. Exceptionally accurate.



The second is an AT-84s that was supposedly built by Jim Borland, a legendary gunsmith from the 80's and early 90's. (I can't prove it, except by comparing its custom work to others by the same gunsmith. But if you've seen other of his certified guns, you'll see many common features. No marks inside that I can find, however, to prove Borland's craftsmanship.) Lots of custom work, including a Bomar sight, mag well, extended controls, bobbed hammer, checkering on ffront and back straps, etc. (I had the slide nickel-plated at a later date, after the original finish became unattractive.) It has a trigger like butter -- similar to a S&W Model 52-2 I once had.

I set about, a year or so ago, trying to contact Borland to verify provenance only to find that he had died a few months before.


These are my two favorites, although I have a semi-custom CZ-75B SA that is almost as nice.

Thanks.. Nice shooter. But not taken out at all anymore...  These guns are a bit on the fragile side.

First time I've seen a BREN 10, although I heard a lot about them.

Beautiful gun!!

You're treating it like you would a high-quality collectible from WWII (and that's almost what it is, just newer.) You wouldn't want to shoot collectible C&R guns much, either.

(Parts might be an issue.. <grin>)

Beautiful pistol.  Wish I had bought one those many years ago.
After they hit the market, there was a lot of bad publicity regarding reliability.  Have you had problems?

These guns are really not to be shot anymore. Just put up and admired. I have all the spare parts I could ever use, but I choose not to shoot them anymore. But reliability wise, no issues. The Bren in the pic is THE BEST handling and shooting handgun I have EVER run across .

Here are more pics:





This is the other gun. Original and unmolested:

Boogalou,

I like your Match, is it a 45? I just got mine in 9mm. Did the wooden grips screw right on, and fit good? How do you like them compared to the OE rubber panels? The Match feels good in my hands, but if they slim it down noticeably, I'd order some. Where'd you get yours (the grips), and how much $$?

Thanks !!

Yes, it is a .45, and the grips you see are the standard ones that come with the Witness Stock. I did buy the walnut checkered grips that you can get from EAA.

and they also fit the Witness Match, so the grips are interchangeable with both guns.  The wood grips are slightly slimmer then the black rubber ones.
