Stuff like this. It's even breaking in the triggers. Cool machine.

That's VERY cool.

Some flavor of steel-framed CZ pistol is on my short list to buy.

The more I read about CZ's, the more I am impressed.

I had a CZ-75 "back in the day" (1980's) when they were highly-sought after but hard to find (because they came from a communist country, Czechoslovakia). I traded it for a "Browning Double Action (BDA)" otherwise known as a Sig P220 in .45, complete with heel magazine release. I never shot the CZ-75 and had no idea that it was a great gun, but I did like the Sig. Which I traded for a Colt Series 70 Mk IV .45... which I traded for...

I think the legendary Jeff Cooper gave the CZ-75 a strong endorsement, which meant something because he was dedicated to the 1911 platform and the .45 ACP round.

I also have read that CZ is involved in a lot of competition these days, which means something too, since most competitors seem to gravitate towards guns that really run well.

May need to look at one of the modern CZ offerings...

My new 75c has a great DA an SA trigger. I know most people complain about the DA but mine is great out of the box.

My favorite range gun and my first CZ is the Shadow 2. Can’t say enough about what a value buy that was, a firearm packed full of great design elements. Accurate, flat shooting 9mm with extremely low recoil.

That's kind of hypnotizing to watch.

I have been into CZs for some time now. They do things special to their pistols that others don’t. I have an array of CZs; they are all my favourits! And anecdotally I will say that of the 2 P-01s I own, one has been worked on by “CZ Custom” and was twice the price of the other. They both are very accurate, and their triggers are equally phenomenal! The only difference is the bling and polish.

Awesome! Although, I still find substantial continued dry firing significantly improves the triggers on the 75s. Maybe my constant handling just breeds the familiarity and perception of an improved trigger.
CZ PCRs for the win!!!

Hrm. Seems to me like it'd be more of a random sampling quality control test. But if they do actually run through each pistol, how do they still have such crappy triggers?

They machine cycle all of them. I'm on my 7th CZ and none have bad triggers. If yours is that terrible, send it in.

I wish they could learn how to properly install a rear sight on a basic CZ SP01 Shadow. It seems to be a common problem where the sight becomes loose in a fairly short time on a new one like mine did. I shot a lot of ammo before I figured out that was the issue. Never ever had a rear sight become loose before on any of my other pistols.

Bought a 2075 RAMI and thought the trigger was awful.

Fired a couple hundred over a couple range outings and cleaned & lubed each time, now the trigger is butter!

Have they just recently implemented this?

The most common criticism of CZ pistols has always been they need to be shot or dry-fired a lot to smooth out their gritty trigger.

Beretta does the same thing, though this is the first time I've seen it done.

Had a PCR, currently have a P-01 and a P-07. The P-01 needed trigger work - actually a trigger replacement, for the sharply curved one, plus some polishing while they were in it - before it was usable. It chewed a hole in my finger and left a flap of skin hanging. After that, however, it is probably the best-shooting handgun I have. Other than failures to eject aluminum-cased ammo in the PCR, none have ever had any kind of stoppage. You'd be hard-pressed to find any all-metal handgun any more for the price (now around $600).

The P-07 has caused me to dump my Glock 17 and 19.
I now have two!

If You REALLY want to be impressed...Send one of the steel guns off to CZ Custom or Cajun Gun Works.

I sent a 75b and a PO-1 off to CGW for an action job, sights replaced on both and a bushing replacement/fitting on the 75b.

I know it's heresy here...but now I can shoot the PO-1 better than my worked on 226 X-5's.

I have a 75, a P07, and a P09 with Cajun Gun Works packages. I couldn't be happier.


What, me worry?
