Discontinued 2012 – .22 LR, black polycoat – The Kadet pistol is the perfect training or plinking pistol, weighted and balanced just like the CZ 75.

Own a CZ 75 complete pistol, incl frame. Also own Smith and Wesson model 41 5″ for comparison. First, old school, I like to see a hammer. The Smith and Wesson lacks this feature. As far as quality construction I find them equal, the Smith and Wesson costing almost twice as much. I find the rear sight on the CZ far superior to the Millit sight found on the Smith and Wesson. Handling: No arguments here, the CZ is by far more ergonomically correct. Reliably: No question as to both companies reputations. Accuracy: Standard velocity target ammo these two pistols are about equal. I would give the edge to the Smith and Wesson. High velocity ammunition my vote would be clearly for the CZ Kadet (complete pistol.)

Originally I wanted. SIG Trailside, but none were to be found. However, I found an article about the CZ Kadet, describing it as the most accurate .22 on the market. I was sold, & picked one up on Gunbroker years ago. True to what I’ve heard, highly accurate, and will be a keeper. I now own a CZ 75B ( Cold War Edition) and am pleased w/that as well. CZ’s Rule!

My Kadet is the real Mccoy. Love to shoot,still enjoying it. Was my first pistol purchase. Thankful for the craftsmanship and durability. It has had 20,000 plus rounds spent, with little to no cleaning. My favorite to say the least.

My Kadet is a conversion kit I use atop my 9mm frame. One of the 2 I bought didn’t enquire any smithing, the other only minor fitting to operate nicely. It’s a very durable unit with a steel slide and adj rear sights. It’s accurate, but I wouldn’t use it for competition shooting. Maybe the dedicated Kadet pistol is more accurate? It extends the uses for my 75b and of course it’s cheaper to shoot 22s. The only thing I’d change is to add better (more visible) sights. Otherwise, I’d recommend the Kadet to anyone who enjoys shooting .22s. I own many 22 conversions, this is one of my favorite ones.
