You know, you could have just told us instead of making us hunt for the information on google. That would have been the more nice thing to do. Even so, I also feel I must thank you for your input. Should I be grateful or offended?
Probably some of both. and I'm pretty sure he feels intellectually above ALL of us in this thread, not just you. So, don't worry you keep good company.

I don't own a CCM marker, so please don't assume I know stuff that you CCM owners take for granted. Think of me as stupid, when you explain things to me and we'll avoid all missunderstandings in the future.
I know nothing about the cz75. So I can't compare it to the phantom frame.

I do not own a CCM marker. -But- from what I can see in pictures the a/c 86* grip is 86 degrees (or very close). The phantom 86 grip is actually less than 86 degrees, but the 86 name stuck because it was similar to the 86* a/c grip.
"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter." Ernest Hemingway, "On the Blue Water," Esquire, April 1936

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.
