I picked this up last week and took it out for the first time today. Here are some crummy pictures.
Note the NATO stock number.
I put a little over 200 rounds through it. Although the first few cases ejected tried to bean me, there were no stoppages. Here are a couple of the targets, shot mostly at 3-7 yards, two-handed and one-handed, with a few left-handed (my weak hand), to show what the gun is capable of.
I give it four and a half stars out of five. Why not five? It has somewhat heavy trigger pulls, both in double (unlike my PCR) and single action, typical of this model. In single-action, when pulling the trigger slowly, you can see the hammer actually move back a little before it releases. There is virtually no chance that the hammer will ever fall out of engagement, but "trigger snobs" probably won't like it. I don't care about that, but what I do care about is that the trigger starts to become uncomfortable after about 100 rounds and rubbed a hole in my finger with a flap of skin hanging by the time I was finished. Whether this was because of the shape or contour of the trigger, the pull weight or both, I don't know. Aside from that, for $600 you get a lot of gun for the money. I'll be keeping it.This message has been edited. Last edited by: egregore,

Got one and sent it to Cajun Gun Works for action job. Waiting for it to come back. Planning to replace the sights. I called CZ and asked about shooting steel case ammo in it. They said no problem. Love those guns made in former com - bloc countries, they were made to shoot steel case and work with el cheapo ammo.
Originally posted by pedropcola: I loves me some PO1. My only complaint is the inside rails design does make it harder to rack the slide but that is a minimal complaint. Really doesn't even rise to complaint, more of a nit pick.
CZ makes some of the best shooting guns out there.
Pull the hammer back first.
