Picked this up yesterday. Was going to wait until after the new year but.....well you guys understand don't you? Ordered some accessories today and will update pics in a couple of weeks with the finished product.

Very cool!! I looked at these a few times. I do like it. But after having the CX4, I do not think i want a 9mm carbine again. Please tell us what group size you get with it at 50 yards. With the CX4, 2-3 inch groups at 50 yards are the norm for everyone, and that was the best I could do too.

Did you get that at Champion?

Yup at Champion. I found them at about 75$ less on line but with shipping and FFL transfer fees it all worked out to about the same. Since Marksman Academy is now closed for the foreseeable future (again) I have to find another place to shoot. I'll probably go to Gunsmoke in Snook but I really liked the folks that ran Marksman. They were always real nice to my grandson. I'm going to go to the indoor range at Champion just to put 50 or so down range. One of the deputies I work with has a place out near Clay. He's given me an invite for the 100 yd range he built but he works an opposite shift than me so it may be awhile before we can get together.

Why is Marksman closed again?

The problem with gunsmoke is that they only have a 25 yard and 100 yard range. Nothing inbetween. And, I hate how their 100 yard is set up.

Some kind of family issue. https://www.facebook.com/marksmanacademy/?fref=nf  scroll down about a 1/4 page. I see now the new owner may open by 1/1/17.

VERY NICE.    :thumbsup1:
 I was waiting on the release of that for almost a year but got impatient and bought a JR Carbine. ( which is excellent on all counts ).

One thing I just didnt understand,  ( and I am a huge CZ fan,)  is the mags.

WHY didnt they make 75 series mags fit it. I thought that was just plain ignorant on CZ's part.

Looking forward to a range report on that bad boy.

700 trouble free rounds. It eats anything. Was going to put a Burris Fastfire III red dot on it but with iron sights it's really accurate, to 75 yards anyway, so I'm leaving it stock for now. I may put a forward grip on it. I've taken it to the indoor range at Champion a couple of times. Sure gets the looks when I unfold it out of the bag.

Cool to hear. I don't know if I will buy a pistol caliber carbine again. But if I did, that would be the one.

It's a really neat gun and I hope I get to shoot one someday.
