New to me 75 SA
« on: November 06, 2017, 10:37:26 PM »
Picked this nice '01 made 75 SA a few weeks ago for a great price.  I bought a Sig 226 Legion SAO earlier this year, been liking it a lot so when I saw this 75 SA for a great price, and four mags I jumped on it. 

I've only put about 200 rounds through it so far, but it seems to be right on.  I'll have to do a comparison between it and the 226 at some point, but I gotta get some more trigger time with this one. 

Sorry for the crappy pic, just got it cleaned up.

Nice!

I'm assuming you have a wee bit less $ into the SA compaired to the Legion, no?

I'll be waiting for the comparison.  :)

Those things just look good to me.  I can't explain it.  I don't need it.  I want it.  Know what I mean?

Everytime I see pictures of one here I think about the one I bought a couple years back that my youngest son ended up with.  It has become his favorite pistol.  He could shoot his Colt, or the Beretta, or the other CZ (P07) but he chooses to heat up the CZ 75 SA every range session.

I bet yours will "grow" on you, too.
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.

A lot less, less than half in fact, but the Legion has a better trigger out of the box and great sights.

I can't quite see, but is that one a 40 S&W?

No it's a 9mm.  The SA has full length rails similar to the .40 cal 75s.

Yeah, I think the thing that sold me was that it's an older gun and has a two letter/three number serial..haha.

In several ways an improvement over the Browning Hi-Power with a better grip tang, thumb safety and a simpler trigger design.

I would like to know why many people think they have to immediately ship the CZ-75B SA off to CGW for a trigger job. Is the stock trigger that bad?

Thanks. :)

I wonder that as well. My brand new 75 SA has a smooth 4.25# trigger pull, and I see no need to modify it.
