CZ 75 B - Plan to add a Miniature Red Dot Sight
« on: January 07, 2018, 02:19:16 PM »
I’m planning to add a miniature red dot sight to my CZ 75 B (matte stainless).  I’m looking for feedback from those who have done it and its pros and cons.

I’m also interested in what sight you purchased and why (i.e., Burris, Trijicon, Vortex, etc.).

Lastly, I’m looking to use one of these brand’s mounts.  What did you chose and why?

Have your slide machined for a Burris FF3 by CZ customs.   Mine was Very well done.  Groups with Fed. Am. Eagle 115 are just about the size of a quarter off the bench at 50' for all 10 shots.

Is this the similar service, but for a CZ 75 B?

Did you get one of these as well?

There is no "plate".  Just two drilled and tapped holes in the bottom of the machined cut slide.  I believe the fee is $120?

I have an Accu-Shadow Light from CZ Custom that I didn't want to mill the slide on (in case I decided to sell it) and I used the Springer Precision mount to add a Vortex Venom.  Works great and the most difficult part of the installation was removal of the original sight.  Springer offers several sights at competitive prices too.   

Ideally and as others have suggested, get the slide milled but, if you aren't sure you want the change to be permanent, the Springer mount works well and is easy to install.

Boy, to mill a SS 75B would be a tough decision to make. I don't think I could do it.

I standardized on the Springer Precision dovetail mount and Burris Fast Fire 3 sights with 3 moa dot four or five years ago.  I have three bullseye centerfire pistols set up that way: P-09, 75B 9mm, 97B"E" in .45.  They have all been perfect and very reliable.  I shot the 75B with 10x bushing in a small local match just yesterday.  I've shot those guns at 100-200 yards many times.  The zero stays set and the batteries last a long time, but I turn the sights off when I'm not at the range. 

I'm going to have CGW cut and drill a P-10C slide for a Burris next, just to see what it is like.  And leave the sight on.

If you want to try an ultra-low mount without milling (you can always do that later) and have the advantage of co-witness; here's my SP-01 with a J-point from JPEnterprises, Leupold dovetail mount that conforms to the CZ-75 slide and a .275 tall Dawson F.O. front sight that co-witnesses perfectly all for <$325. I posted a DIY with all the part #'s on Dec. 31st.



**Note that the rear of the Optic sits only 3/8" above the slide, and the mount is shaped with the contour of the CZ-75 slide for a clean look & no-snag. Co-witness with only a .275 tall front, shorter than many milled-in optics!! Just Say'in. -Vinny

Thanks Joe,
I didn't want to mill my SP-01 but wanted a low enough set-up that I could co-witness with a front sight. The Jpoint has a rear 'iron' notch built-in, 4moa dot so it's a good intermediate size; and it's proven to be very reliable. I have one on my Mossberg 500 too. It's the only other optic that fits that 'CZ-75 contoured' Leupold DPPro mount. Now that I'm recognizing how much better I shoot with RDS, I'm planning this set-up with my P-01 too.    ;D
