    I have had this gun in my possession for about 3 months now, and have been running 50-75 rounds through it every time I go shooting- probably 400 or so rounds total to date. This has been in preparation for when my holster, an AKJ concealco, finally arrives. This gun is still relatively new and rare, and as such few places even make a holster for it, and none that I am aware of stock one. also, I am left handed, which is often a custom or semi-custom deal. After literally 3 months it finally came, and I’ve carried it for the past couple weeks.

    Overall impressions-

    While it is quite small, I find the general fact that subcompacts don’t shoot as well, as accurately, and as comfortably as compact or full size handguns doesn’t exactly apply to the RAMI. Sure, it certainly does not handle like a glock 17 or sig 226. But I find I don’t avoid or ‘mind’ shooting my RAMI one bit, the way I disliked shooting the awfully snappy XD9 sub-compact I used to own, or my J frame revolver. (.38 +p out of an airweight ain’t pretty.) In fact I kind of like it.

    Accuracy is worlds better than any subcompact I’ve ever shot, and is even slightly better than my glock 19, although this is only when the shooting the RAMI is in SA mode. I have read that CZs are inherently quite accurate, and this would appear so. I am quite pleased with how well I shoot it. The stock sights will be fine for now.

    I’m happy to say that in its short life it has been 100% reliable. No failures of any kind; very glock-like. No break in period, that I was aware of, anyway. Feeds gold dot JHPs just fine. I have taken quite good care of my RAMI, and have cleaned and lubricated it with a level care and frequency that I’ve never shown my glock, however. (my glock has run flawless in its relatively short and unmodified life, as well. This gun (and CZs in general, I have read) seems to have much tighter tolerances than a glock, and so I wanted to keep everything working smoothly.

    Trigger: DA is about as awful and as heavy as you would expect, but SA is just fine, quite nice even. SA does have some creep in it though. I have been carrying with a round in the chamber with the hammer down, safety off. Since I’m left handed I don’t want to carry it cocked and locked, as it is a bit awkward for me to disengaged the safety in a hurry should the need arise.

    Holds 10+1 rounds of 9mm, like the glock 26, one of its obvious competitors. Unfortunately I have no pictures of a direct comparison with a glock 26 for size. Price was $514 from buds, with two mags. CZ also makes a plastic version of the RAMI ala glock, the RAMI-P. both are available in .40 as well.

    The AKJ concealco holster is awesome. Pulls the gun very close to the body, and with the RAMI’s very small and thin size it virtually disappears. I will probably get one for my glock 19 as well. Thanks to thunderbear and his epic holsters thread for referring me to AKJ. http://www.concealco.com/miva/merchant.mvc

    Cliffs: I believe the CZ RAMI offers a very viable choice for those looking for a reliable, effective self defense weapon in a small package. I believe it competes very favorably against the leaders in this class, including the glock 26, m&p9c, XD9-SC, sig 239, walther PPS/P99, Kahr CW9, and numerous others.

    Yet another choice, gentlemen.

    And now the pics



    what do we have here

    CZ's apparently come with snap caps. I proclaim this to be awesome.

    note the RAMI's hammer is cocked with the safety switched on.

    and finally, on me. IBdirty bathroom
    while I'm wearing an extremely baggy sweatshirt, such clothes aren't at all nessasary to conceal the RAMI.

    and there you have it.

    I've always thought those looked like really nice guns. Not to mention sexy.

    How's that holster? I almost got one of those a while back, but went with something else.

    I agree. CZ did really great thing with the RAMI. if this gun had the marketing and distributorship that the m&p's or the XD's had, I bet it could have really taken off. it still may.

    as I said, it is great.



    ditto.

    Buds has the RAMI going for about $550. Not bad.

    thank you. alot of folks think so as well. I should whore more pics of it...actually I've only posted pictures of probably 15% of my stuff. my pictures are very hit or miss.

    being all stainless steel (slide and frame) it is extremely heavy for its size. it is really quite shocking once you pick it up for the first time. all this weight drastically reduces felt recoil and for a relative noob like me it makes double taps and otherwise rapid firing easier.

    I do have a decent holster for it and when I'm wearing alot of clothes I conceal carry it occasionally. I NEVER forget its there, its like a giant lead wedge on my hip. quite uncomfortable. the upside is the obvious- its a very serious weapon.

    thats the price for the night sights version, which I do not have. regular price looks to be still about $520. it is currently not in stock at buds though. I'm sure it can be found other places.

    holy shit I did not realize this, the polymer version is even cheaper at $476!!

    looks like from the picture it comes with a bigger mag and a mag extension. I don't have that.

    meh, its probably not that bad. the stock CZ photo of it is pretty awful, in real life I bet its not that bad. and the extended magazine makes it look sort of silly. kind of defeats the point of the gun.

    Very nice. I've come that close to buying one a few times now. It'll eventually make its way into my stable.
