Handgun Roundup: the Full-Size CZ 75s

By - Last updated: Thursday, October 20, 2016
The Full Size CZ 75s Group Photo

You can find full-size, CZ 75-style pistols in numerous configurations.

The CZ 75 is probably the second-most copied and/or sourced handgun in history behind only the Colt 1911 pistol. At least 11 manufacturers have produced CZ 75-style pistols in the past five years or so, in roughly 60 different models ranging from CZ-produced originals to outright clones to compacts built on polymer frames. And many more manufacturers have built CZ 75-style pistols in the more distant past.

This article pulls together info on the 40 full-size CZ 75-style pistols in production within the past five years or so. This list excludes any mid-size, compact, subcompact and extended-length guns; generally speaking, that means only guns measuring approximately 8.0″-8.5″ long made it in (although technically the CZ 75 Shadow series includes a long-slide version).

Each pistol’s listing is an excerpt from its main-info page, which contains a full description, specs, more photos, pricing info and sometimes links to external articles and reviews. To go to that page, click on the gun’s name or photo. To see all the CZ 75-style pistols produced by one of the companies below, visit its category page on our site. Continue reading

Handgun Roundup: The Semiauto Magnums

In America, many of us gravitate toward the biggest, the baddest, the fastest. Hence the Corvette, Pamela Anderson, 60-inch TVs, Wild Turkey, Mike Tyson, the Kingda Ka roller coaster and the Super Bowl.

This inclination has its adherents in the handgun world, too. Pistol power has been ratcheting up for, well, forever, and it’s due to demand. Remember when the .44 Magnum was the most powerful handgun in the world? That was a long time and many new cartridges ago. Modern behemoths include rounds such as the .500 SW Magnum, the .454 Casull and many others.

Most magnum-capable handguns are revolvers. Why? It’s proven difficult to construct a practical, functional, usable, magnum-caliber semiauto. Typically, semiautos hold the ammo inside the grip (there are exceptions, such as the Tec-22, Ruger Charger, etc.), and because magnum rounds are big, they require a big grip. Too big for some shooters to feel comfortable with, it turns out.

That’s not to say semiauto magnums don’t exist. Over the years, at least seven models have gone into production chambered for heavyweight rounds such as the .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .44 AMP, .45 Winchester Magnum and several others.

A number of these semiauto magnums have entered popular culture. Quick, what was that big semiauto Dirty Harry broke out in the movie “Sudden Impact?” The Auto Mag, of course. Charles Bronson shot bad guys with a Wildey in “Death Wish 3” (pictured at right), and the Desert Eagle has appeared in countless action films.

Of the seven pistols listed below, five appear to be out of production (the Auto Mag, the AutoMags, the Grizzly and the Wildey). You can still find used specimens for sale in gun shops and on online sites such as GunBroker.com. The Desert Eagle and Coonan are both still in production (at press time).

This article pulls basic info for the semiauto magnums into one place. Each pistol’s listing is an excerpt from its main-info page, which contains the full description, specs, more photos, pricing info (when available) and links to external articles and reviews. To go to that page, Continue reading
