Comments: This airgun, made in Taiwan by KWC for ASG, is an excellent replica of the CZ 75D Compact handgun. The CZ 75D airgun uses a high quality polymer for the slide and frame. The grip panels are made from non-slip rubber. The magazine base pad is also made from rubber. The fit and finish are very good with no ugly gaps and few noticeable seams. Working controls on this airgun include the hammer, mag release, and safety. The slide stop lever is molded into the frame and is non-functional. The slide can be moved back and forth by hand to cock the hammer, but the ASG CZ 75D does not have a blowback mechanism. The trigger can be operated in either single-action (SA) or double-action (DA) mode. Muzzle velocities were similar in both modes. The double-action pull (7.8 lbs) is long and smooth with a good break. The single-action pull (3.1 lbs) has a short first stage and a crisp second stage.   

The ASG CZ 75D employs a removable magazine that incorporates the BB magazine, the CO2 cartridge compartment, and the gas valve. Loading BBs is very straightforward. First, pull the spring follower all the way down and lock it in position. Load BBs through the loading port located just above the tip of the follower. Be sure to release the follower when you are finished loading BBs. Loading and piercing a CO2 cylinder is done a little differently on the ASG CZ75D than on most other airguns. The piercing screw, located at the bottom of the CO2 compartment, can be adjusted up and down and also can be tilted outward. The piercing screw is adjusted so that when a CO2 cylinder is placed on the outwardly tilted screw, pushing in on the base of the cylinder forces it in and up against the piercing pin, thus puncturing (in theory) the cylinder. Fortunately, ASG has supplied an access hole at the base of the magazine where a screwdriver can be inserted to tighten the piercing screw should the cylinder fail to pierce. The ASG CZ 75D Compact is a well-made and faithful replica of the CZ firearm. It is an accurate and reliable shooter that produces about 50 good shots per CO2 cylinder. Shot-to-shot velocities are pretty consistent as long as the gun is not fired rapidly. While all CO2 guns lose power when fired rapidly, the ASG CZ 75D drops off faster than most.

Performance: Measurements were made on 10/14/2011 at a temperature of 72 F and 5000' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti Match BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 409 fps, the lowest was 368 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 396 fps, s = 14). The average velocity was very close to the advertised value of 390 fps. A five-shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.46". Click the thumbnail below to see a larger image. Click here for a description of the measurement methods.

Four different brands of BBs were tested with the CZ 75D. The targets below show the results for firing five-shot groups from 15' using a bench and open sights with Crosman Copperhead BBs (1.45"), Daisy Avanti BBs (0.97" with one called flyer), Daisy Precision Max BBs (1.19"), and RWS Match Grade BBs (1.18"). Daisy Avanti BBs produced the best results. All measurements are center-to-center.


 


 
Right Profile: The slide can be manually moved back and forth to cock the hammer. However, the ASG CZ 75D Compact does not employ a blowback mechanism.

Left Profile 2: The rear sight on the ASG CZ75D is adjustable for windage by turning the hex screw located on the right side of the rear sight. ASG supplies a combo tool that can be used for adjusting the rear sight and to adjust the CO2 piercing screw.

Loading BBs: The ASG CZ 75D uses a removable 17-shot magazine. The spring-loaded follower in the magazine has a locking position, which makes the magazine easier to load.

 
Loading CO2: The removable magazine holds the CO2 cylinder, BBs, and the gas valve for the airgun. The method for loading the CO2 cylinder is somewhat unconventional. The piercing screw is a tilt-out mechanism. The screw is adjusted so that when the cylinder is installed, pushing in on the bottom of the cylinder causes the cylinder to move in and up. If everything goes well, the cylinder will be properly pierced. If it doesn't, you can adjust the piercing screw by turning it with a screwdriver through an opening in the bottom of the magazine.

The ASG C75D comes with a combo tool that contains a hex key for adjusting the rear sight and a screwdriver bit for making adjustments to the piercing screw.
