The CZ 75 came in many differing configurations over the years but the biggest difference is the B model has a firing pin block and a roll pin through the slide to retain the firing pin. The 75 does not have either.

That firing pin block adds a few parts to the pistol and adds a skosh of length to the trigger pull and the associated friction of the moving parts.  This can be virtually "tuned" out of most shooters' notice.  With the "pin"  the firing pin block pistols,  a potential failure is  added due to the pin eventually failing/breaking.  With due care the pin lasts for many thousands of rounds.
See "dry Fire" with firing block 75  pistols.
