I can't think of anything to complain about with CZ, I've loved every one of their products I've gotten my hands on. I would fill my safe with CZ if I could.

The price of magazines compared to most other brands. $35 for a plastic 10-rd rimfire magazine is a little ridiculous.

Other than that, my 455 is one of my favorite guns to shoot.

Is there a reason you devoted so much time to bashing Glock but not Beretta or CZ? Because all three were mentioned as being superior to the Springfield (which, incidentally, I agree with on quality alone, never mind the fact that Springfield sold gun owers out).
  1. Gotta start somewhere and your beloved Glock is as good a place as any.
  2. Beretta's sales numbers suck and they're not really relevant in the personal protection market any more, not since they sold most of their modern designs off to the Turks. All they have left are variants of the 92, the PX4 and the APX, none of which are really all that relevant now. The problems with all of these, much like with Italian cars, are all well known.
  3. CZ makes fewer mistakes, has better QC and doesn't pull the "blame the user" trick every time something goes wrong. See Glock Gen 4 TWO YEAR DENIAL period.
  4. Any company advertising their products as "PERFECTION" is automatically target number one if their product isn't perfect. This is direct from their website now:

They are promising PERFECTION. They don't deliver? Let them have both barrels, such arrogance and naked hubris deserves whatever they get. At the pinnacle of their crack-smoking high, with their seemingly endless legions of blind fanboys, even Colt hesitated to proclaim anything they made was perfection.
5. I haven't recommended new Springfields since they sold out. On the other hand, their previous customer service has been excellent and the experience of MAC's buddy has not been echoed much of anywhere else.

It's fascinating how much Glock gets under your skin.
I'm running into the same vitriol with Kimber (not directed at you) over on the AR15 forum. It's almost like some Kimber employees went on a crusade kicking people's dogs, impregnating their moms and/or girlfriends and stealing their cars for a hasty getaway.

Yeah it's one thing to say "hey, just FYI..." and another to go out of your way to constantly bash something for no apparent reason.

Unless it gets under people's skin, then it's funny.

I've had no issues with either of my Walthers and love shooting them. Took them out to the range for the first time in ages last weekend and put about 150 rounds through each one. Would love to pick up the new PPQ SC.

Gun show I was at a few months ago had a cold war edition CZ75B for a really reasonable price. $550 IIRC. Not going to lie, was kinda tempted.

Someone on Reddit built this, and I'm rather interested in duplicating it... This would be considered a firearm with an OAL >26" if not intended to be fired from the shoulder, correct?
