Aftermath CZ 75D BB Pistols
« on: June 07, 2012, 09:12:15 AM »
As I patiently wait to get my hands on a PCR  I'm debating on whether or not I can fit a small air pistol range in the basement of my new house as a way to practice during the winter. I recently came across Aftermaths CZ 75D compact Co2 BB pistol on Pyramydair.com and was curious to know if anyone has any experience them.

One thing I noticed just from the picture is that the pistol seems to be a combination of a 75D Compact and the P01 model. It looks to have the PO1's frame, but a SA safety.

Any thoughts?

My only thought is crap I need another one. ;)

I have a walther(umarex) P88 and love shooting it. I would enjoy a good CZ copy very much. My walther has thousands of rounds through it with no issues and is very accurate. My walther ppk bb gun cannot say the same, it is neither accurate or trouble free. It is fun to have a metal slide function like the real firearm so you feel some recoil out of a BB gun (PPK) but it would be nice if it was a little more accurate.

Either way they are both great fun to shoot, basement shooting no problem.

I've heard nothing but good things about Umarex, I wish they would put out a CZ based air pistol. I just moved into a new house and have been toying with the idea of turn the unfinished basement into an indoor air pistol range. Just need the spare time and cash.

Remember pellet pistols are usually  pretty accurate (more than BB). so you will find that if you have 10 feet of clear space and about $10 for a small pellet trap you can be practicing all the time for real short money. Hard part is the accuracy is so good there will be one hole often.

I have a RWS pellet rifle I bought decades ago, I shot it at 10 yards indoors and often the holes were often not even ragged. How could I have missed I would ask... they would not be misses but same hole shots. Good pellet guns are just that good , they make me look good. You will have fun on those rainy nights or blah days when you cannot get to a range. Good therapy.

I have a Umarex Colt 1911
Great CO2 Pistol
An incredible copy of the real deal and very well balanced to boot
Accurate as #e[[ out to 15 meters and not really that bad farther out either
I get about 100 shots from a single CO2 Cartage
So tell me again how Trump will be worse then the last 8 years !

Not CZ but I've just gotten back into airguns after a 45 year absence. First a 1946 Crosman 101 pump rifle in .22 needing extensive work and then a 1965-1966 Crosman 150 .22 CO2 cartridge pistol in 95+% condition but needing internal work. Had some valve work done on the 150 by Rick Willnecker at Precision Pellet then I rebuilt with new seals and all I can say is WOW! [101 needs a bunch of serious work so it's being slowly restored.]

Great fun with a large bean can at 50' and fairly easy to shoot 1"-2" groups. Bean can's heavier than soup cans but on second hammer notch for high power level a pellet cuts clean through both sides of can and keeps a goin' yonder! At first level it cuts through one side and deeply dents and partly tears backside. Have to weight can half full of little rocks to hold it still. Got about 40 shots out of 1 CO2 cartridge.

I imagine that properly bench rested with the right pellet and a standard target at 50' it will shoot out the bullseye to boredom. Didn't realize until much later after target practice that it was all done while wearing my reading glasses, not my distance Rx, so no idea how accurate the little bugger really is when I can actually see what I'm shooting at!

Just a whole bunch of good clean fun for an old coot and his pals! Build that range, you'll love it!!
