    I have a CZ-75 clone (IMI Baby Eagle) that cost more than the CZ did when I purchased it. i'm quite impressed with it aside from its crushing DA pull.

    CZ-52. Heavy trigger, but an awfully powerful gun! 1,530 fps through a chrono.

    CZ-52, prone to firing pin breakage, terrible ergonomics, crappy crush cavity for terminal ballistics, in short mass produced commie crap.

    Aks are fine for what they are. There is nothing elegant or refined about them. They are really designed for close to intermediate range work. They are simple and reliable but rather crude and the ballistics of the 7.62x39 cartridge arent exactly stellar but certainly adequate for their intended purpose.

    Original firing pin was crap. Replaced the firing pin.

    Ergonomics are bad unless it fits your hand well, in which case it's very good.

    Crush cavity for terminal ballistics? You're kidding, right? This is a military weapon; it was designed to punch holes in things (expanding bullets are forbidden by Geneva Convention).

    Crap? Perhaps. But why then are there so many fans of the gun?

    Total number of fans indicates nothing. There are people out there that think hipoints are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I would take a CZ-52 over one of those boat anchors any day of the week but its all relative. For the record its not the Geneva convention its the Hague convention.

    I dont know what you are talking about, Hi points are the best thing ever! They're the only gun that can function as a brick, a hammer, fishing weight, melee weapon, and occasionally a firearm. *snicker*

    Well I guess there are other firearms that could do that, but not that cost less than a case of ammo for it.

    But personally I hate hi points. I love CZs though, they might not be the best thing since sliced bread, but they sit right up there next to great 1911s in my book.

    How about the best of both worlds, CZ and 1911...

    I love my "CZ" :)
     
  14. Those "CZs" are the best value 1911s on the market.

    I'm looking at getting a CZ 75 Kadet for cheap training purposes. Anyone have one of these?

    Agreed, slide to frame fit is impressively tight for a $800 1911.

    I have the Kadet Kit on a 75BD frame most of the time. Very accurate. Excellent trigger job for the 75.
