    Taurus 1911 vs Beretta 92 vs CZ 75

    I want a all metal stainless (or nickle) 9MM. Will mainly be a plinking range gun but could see some carry. I have done some research and was wondering if anyone could tell me the good and bad of the following

    taurus 9mm 1911
    Beretta 92 inox
    cz 75 (stainless or nickle)

    If all other things are the same I think I would like the 1911 platform (although fewer rounds).

    If anyone has any other suggestions I am open. I would like to keep the price under $700.00.

    Thanks

    I like 1911s, too, but it bothers me the way the platform is "adjusted" deal with the shorter, thinner 9mm round. Even though it's a significant upcharge, I'd look at the EMP for a 1911 that was designed around the 9mm.

    Don't see anything wrong about the Beretta (big gun--hard to conceal IMPE) or CZ; you'll notice a price difference between them!

    Consider an old Ruger P85-P94?

    I never had one. What is it that they do to make it work?
    ...there is nothing proportionate between the armed and the unarmed;
    and it is not reasonable that he who is armed should yield obedience
    willingly to him who is unarmed, or that the unarmed man should be
    secure among armed servants. Because, there being in the one disdain
    and in the other suspicion, it is not possible for them to work well together.

    I had a Baretta 92, didnt like it. I have a CZ 75 SA Target, that is a tack driver. I would go with CZ over the others.

    I'm not a gunsmith, so I'm sure I'll be incomplete (at least), but it's what you would expect. The frame and mags stay the same external dimensions; that usually means the mags are "pinched" with a groove running down the sides (as with .38 Supers), and also a block is at the back of the mag to keep the rounds forward. The frame feed ramp needs to be reshaped (unless a Para-type barrel is used), and the slide stop is different (same as .38).

    The slide/barrel have lots of changes, especially extractor and ejector geometries; and both the slide and barrel end up thicker and heavier than they "need" to be, so that the slide still fits on the .45-sized frame.

    If you like single action in a 9mm, I would heartily reccomend the CZ75 SA.
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    I've got a Beretta 92FS Inox. Excellent gun, soft shooting, accurate, and very reliable. It has a large grip which is only a problem if you have small hands. I prefer large grips as I have long fingers and small grips just don't work for me. Oh and the 92 Inox and the CZ 75B stainless are, IMHO, the two best looking pistols on the market today! Try them on for size before you buy one.

    I am more a revolver than an auto guy, but years ago my auto of choice was the 1911.

    My son came to love his M9 on active duty, and I am now a Beretta-style guy.

    Adapting to the different manual of arms (SA vs. DA, frame vx. slide mounted safety) is probably the big change for most folks, and I agree with labhound that handling one a little bit may influence your opinion a lot. I assume you haven't had a lot of experience with either from your question... otherwise, you'd probably be on another thread crowing the superiority of your favorite! :-)

    Have shot all three (the 75 was a compact). Of the three, I'm partial to the 1911 grip of the Taurus....Beretta a bit big, CZ better, but less accurate.

    CZ First, Beretta Second.

    Don't waste your money on anything Taurus makes.

    RMD ever actually owned or shot a Taurus 1911? Despite my screen name and love for Beretta's and despite other 1911's I've owned or shot, the Taurus has been the best. Go figure.

    Having never fired a taurus 1911 I would have to side with the CZ, I am a fan of that family of firearms craftsmanship and own a Witness compact and a distant cousin to it, a IWI Jericho.

    You can get an Inox or a stainless CZ75 for under $700.00 easily, the 1911 might run you a little over that if you decide on anything other than a Taurus. Springfield Armory makes some really nice 9mm 1911's that you might consider. PI9134LP and PX9130LP are two models to check out. Good stuff.

    You don't mention whether or not having your carry gun be DA or SA is important to you. The Beretta and CZ are DA/SA of course. I've carried both, the Inox is a tad big to haul around but the CZ not so much. Carrying a 1911 brings its own challenges, not only in size and weight but also whether or not you're comfortable with a condition one pistol on your hip.

    All three of these guns are great designs, excellent quality (for their price point) and quite affordable. Any possibility you could add all three to your collection as time goes by? I was in your position about two years ago and that was my solution.

    Boy, that's a tough one becaue they're all so different from one another. The CZ was the one that surprised me the most with how comfotable it felt and how it naturally poositions itelf in your hand when you get ready to shoot.

    The Beretta is a big gun with a big grip which I like because it fits my hand so well. And that gun has been a favorite (as compared to the CZ) of the couple of people who have had a chance to fire it and the CZ at the same outing.

    The 1911 feels like a 1911... What can I say. It's fine.

    So, am I gonna quit yappin' and answer the question? Yes! I say the CZ fits my hand the best.

    Big hands? Go grab hold of a CZ 97. Made for big handed people.

    I own and have owned several Taurus pistols. I've always found them to be reliable and accurate pistols. I've never owned a Taurus PT1911. So I can't really comment on that one. But if I were going to get (another) 1911, I'd go for the Rock Island Armory 1911. They make them in .45ACP and 9mm. In FS Tactical, with combat sights, or GI model, with the usual hardware. I've not seen them in stainless, but my 1911 .45 GI is in polished nickel.


    Depending on where you get it from, the price is typically under $500.00. The parkerized versions I've seen hovering right around $400.00 on GunsAmerica.com and gunbroker.

    Why not a Taurus PT92? The same basic design as the Beretta 92, with the frame-mounted safety of the 1911 and CZ75, plus a decock feature in the safety switch; PLUS less expensive.

    I've had a Beretta, have a CZ75 and 1911s.

    Getting clear, action-oriented feedback can increase employee engagement and retention, so regular in-depth performance reviews are important. Do you find it helpful also? This my way to show my gratitude on every open site that is also been helpful to my own research. Thanks as always
