New CZ-75 SP-01

I shot 4x401's at the last Oregon FAL shoot and had to have one.
First time shooting the 75 it took me a few rounds to get my sight picture.

Great pick up. Have one myself and found it to be one of my best shooters. That says a lot too, as it shares company with a Tanfo Stock II and a Wilson/Beretta 92g Vertec Centurion. The favorite seems to be the one I am shooting at the time.

Yes, I have taken to the 75 in a big way. I just ordered the 75 compact yesterday.

I have one of those and it's been very dependable. I bought a bunch of extra magazines too because I lived through the high capacity magazine ban and that's the first thing I do now.

I haven't shot it regularly however because for whatever reason, it's not accurate in my hands at all.

It feels great, points well, decent trigger... still can't hold a a decent group.

Thanks Troy!

I made the mistake of visiting CGW and wow lots of mods to spend a fortune on.

Which grips do you have. I can't shoot the hard plastic grips for s#!+. But the soft rubber grips fit my hand perfect. Tightened up my groups significantly.

I am on first name basis with the guys at CJW.

The stock rubber grips feel good. If you want more friction look at LOK grips Bogies. They make some with the same contour as the rubber or thinner or thicker. Great texture!

One thing to keep in mind with the CZ is that there is very little leade ahead of the chamber. This means that cartridges loaded toward the max COL may not want to come out easily when the slide is drawn back. It may also happen with bullets that have a broad ogive.

I had a local machinist work on my barrel. I gave him a handful of cartridges and he made sure they all would drop in and back out easily.

Also....the slide stop is a failure point. Most of what I read suggested it was commonly letting let go between 2k and 5k rounds.
Mine snapped at about 9k rounds; and I have another 6k on the replacement.

I still like the gun and enjoy shooting it often.
I can also recommend MecGar magazines.

And from what I've been reading it's more than just a reliability issue, Also a safety issue because of the pressure of having a COAL too long.

I'm just on the front end of learning how to reload for these pistols (P09, p07). Seems bullet selection is more critical with CZ's than most other makes.

My SP01's little brother 75 compact just showed up to the show..
I have some new LOK grips coming for the compact and sights will be next. I'm also going to replace the triggers in both with the older style CZ trigger.

Mine lasted to around 12k. Didn't notice the break until the stage was over. Kept operating with just the right half held in the spring ... Worth keeping a spare or two in the range bag.

It wasn't until I moved to the US that I started to think about the why. Metal fatigue from bi-directional motion - the enclosed loop of the cam/lug. I bet a HiPower won't have the same issue ...

Got a CZ75SA that I like a lot, although I haven't shot it a bunch yet. It won't replace my HPs, though - just enough bigger that, while still comfortable, it doesn't fit my hand quite as well. A bit heavier as well.

I picked up my CZ p-01 about a year ago and really like it.

I'm pretty sure a trigger job is in the future though.

LOK grips

I just purchased the 75 Compact a couple of weeks ago and instantly ordered a set of LOK "Ridgeback" grips for it.

Because of all of you and your LOK grips, I had to order a set. I was quite happy with the rubber grips on both my 75B and 75D Coimpact. Now I have a set of Black and Grey Bogies with palm swell on the way for the 75B.

Thanks a lot guys..

Have been flirting with the idea of buying a set for my Stock II. Tried the aluminum panels, but didn't do it for me, so I went back to the stock wooden ones which do, by the way, have a great hand feel for me. Might have to splurge for a set of Lava grips just to satisfy my curiosity. 10 mm and grippy panels go good together.

Those pistols (Cz and Tanfoglio) are downright addictive. They are about all we have in the house now. CGW and Cz Custom are calling my name, have been for a while. Don't know how much longer my willpower can last.
