Not looking for concealability as a consideration.

I own two CZ's and a FNX 45. They are both great guns but and really are what I consider to be men's fighting pistols. That is where the similarities end though. They are very unique in their own ways and are very different from your standard Glock or M&P type pistol.

The CZ's have much better ergonomics and a much more precise, hand crafted, sturdy, all metal feel to them. The CZ's really inspire confidence through ergonomics and precise design. The FNX 45 by comparison, has a really weird feeling of being both large yet flimsy. That being said, it is 100% reliable, has a great grip and is a workhorse of a 45 that you aren't afraid to use and abuse. The FNX is not for small, soft, delicate hands at all; be honest with yourself about that part.

I owned an FNX 45 and sold it (along with an FNX 40 (never fired) and an FNX 9). The FNX45 is a very large pistol (15+1) and even with the smallest backstrap one needs a big hand to hold it (and I have very large hands). Initially, I thought the FNX platform was going to be my "go to" for a utility pistol, but over time, I found I did not care for it. The grip was too rough and after 200 rounds or so, the palms of my hands would feel it and I was never able to be as accurate with them as I was with other platforms.

They are great pistols and I would not hesitate to trust my life with one of them, but I would recommend renting one and shooting a few hundred rounds through it to see how it works for you before deciding. The decocker works as designed and the overall mechanics of the pistol are inline with other brands. My wife found the action on the FNX 9 to be very stiff (even after 500 rounds or so) and she had difficulty racking the slide.

YMMV!

The downside, (if you really want to call it that), to the CZ is weight. The full size guns are 40+ ounces. Even more with the +2 magazines fully loaded. For me I just appreciate all steel pistols more. There is far more craftsmanship in them. A Polymer pistol is what it is. Glock's and H&K plastic guns are very rugged and dependable. But I have enough of them, and when I see a new model of either, nothing inside me gets "triggered" to purchase any more of them. When one is tested in a gun rag, I no longer can even muster up the desire to read the article. Because they're a dime a dozen, and they say the same things about all of them.

Where as every time I see a CZ-75, I'm drawn to it, and immediately want to pick it up. Even if I already have that particular model. To me a CZ is like a classy woman that you have a hard time taking your eyes off of. A Polymer gun is like a noisy teenager wearing too much makeup and too little clothes.

Just to muddy the water since .45s are in the running - have you considered the CZ97B or BD? Me, I would go CZ.

I need to get shooting a CZ.

Had a chance to hold an HK45C, liked the in hand feel a lot. Seemed a sturdier overall build than my USP 9mm, fwiw.

I do like metal.

What about the PX4 Storm? It ticks all the boxes except having a metal frame. They aren't exotic but they aren't that common either.

I'm a CZ guy and won't hide it.

What exactly is your objective? Range gun, competition gun, carry gun, all of the above?

CZ with decocker will have somewhat average trigger feel, unless 'massaged' a fair bit.
If you wanna try a good CZ - it has to be a non-B model and a gun the is either broken in or tuned.

I shoot, wore out a barrel after about 75K rounds, fitted a new one to my gun, and it shoots like a new one now smile

A tuned CZ is something you will never wanna sell and will brag about shooting every time you have a chance...

Without a doubt.......CZ 75.
My Protek 1 (CZ 75 Compact PCR) by CZ Customs runs circles around all my other tuned DA/SA guns from Beretta(92 G Elite LTT), Sig(P226 Legion w/ Gray Guns trigger job), and HK (P30 w/ GG trigger job).
