Shooting gun straight out the box
« on: March 15, 2017, 04:47:36 PM »
Excited to pick up my new CZ 75 compact today.

Is it ok to take it straight to the range and put a few rounds through without taking it apart and oiling it first?

I'm sure it'll survive. Might have a few failures if it has too much factory protectant grease on it.

I would not shoot it before cleaning it and the magazines.

No, it's not ok.  Run a lightly oiled patch down the bore, and put a drop of oil on the moving/rubbing internal parts. It takes only a couple of minutes to do this.

Clean it like it is filthy to get all the cosmoline out.

I always clean mine as they have been shot. Good to know what things look like inside and see if all is as it should be.
The mags should also be checked.

Usually I do but there was one of the CZ's that I just took to the range.  Don't remember if it was the P07 or one of the P09's.  I had started taking ammo/ear plugs, etc. to the gun shows in the trunk of the car just in case I found what I wanted.

All the rest of them I've taken home and cleaned/lubed before going to the range.

I agree it's best to field strip, clean, inspect and lube prior to shooting.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

In the 90s, I remember seeing the bag of cosmoline with a cz75 pistol swimming around in it.

 I guess I'm the opposite. When I picked up my new SAR a couple of weeks ago, it was straight home, from the truck to the shop where I grabbed a box of shells, then from the shop a couple hundred feet to the range. Fact is I fired probably a hundred or so rounds before I ever disassembled the SAR. I like to do this so I can see where metal vs. metal is beginning to remove finish, then I know where to stone and polish. I'm nearing 500 rounds now with nary a problem.

That's what I bought as my first CZ. Definitely clean it thoroughly and "lightly" oil it. They don't need much, just a light coating on the areas where metal meets metal. Also take off the grips (carefully with a phillips head that fits properly as the screw heads are pretty soft) and clean underneath where the grips were against the frame. There was a bunch of oil underneath on mine.
Have fun! Mine was crazy accurate right off the bat.

I always de-grease if I buy new. Did it yesterday at my range's member lounge with my shadow 2. I then cover everything with hornady's dry lube. Use oil or grease on rails as needed.

I'm usually too impatient to take it home to clean before shooting it.

That first field strip and cleaning also is your first OPs check of THAT pistols function. 
After you shoot it and  know it's good-to-go,  then you can do like JOEL does and clean once every few thousand rds or so.  ;)
