New CZ-P10

Just picked this P-10 F optics ready last night. My Trijicon SRO will be here this Tuesday. The trigger is pretty darn good right out of the box with a clean crisp break. The ten pull average was 4lb.0.9oz.

I got the Trijicon 5 MOA SRO mounted today and headed to the range. This set-up is sweet! I ran 100 rounds through the new P-10 and it was flawless. I was killing 6" plates from 5-40 yards with ease. My best from 40 yards was 5 out of 6 hits standing and leaning against a beam. Very fast follow up shots with the dot never leaving the optic window.

I have a HB Industries trigger and striker spring set on the way. The trigger is already pretty decent, but the safety flipper dohickey in the middle of the trigger doesn't go flush with the trigger when pulled. After a bit of shooting, this becomes annoying and starts to wear on your finger. I would be surprised if CZ doesn't address this in the future.

All done.

I put the new HBI trigger and new striker spring in this morning. This is all I'm going to do to this, so I'm calling it done for now. Both the factory trigger and the HBI have {had} a really nice break.

Edit; After looking at the picture of the barrel where recoil spring seats I had to break it down. The picture looks like the steel has a fracture in it. It was just a little oil and optical illusion. It did kinda freak me out when I saw the picture though.

I never would have thought without any polishing and just a striker spring change and HBI trigger I would be in the 3lb pull range. Pretty darn impressive for a striker-fired pistol. All of my Glocks are starting to rumble a bit..

I ran 180 rounds through it today and then checked trigger pull. It was down a few ounces from the last outing. This set-up is really nice. My buddy shoots with an RMR and is excited to try the SRO when we shoot this Friday.

Ten pull averages.

Thatís a nice looking rig! I really like the P10 series. Donít own one (yet), but the P10C fits my hand about as well as any polymer pistol could, and CZ pistols of all flavors are top shelf in my experience. Do you find your trigger mods worth the extra cost over stock? You mentioned your Glocks, how does your P10 compare against them overall?

I'm no expert, but I'll always love my Glocks. This particular P-10 with the Trijicon SRO and HBI trigger is a pure pleasure to shoot and my favorite striker-fired pistol.

From what I have seen I got lucky with the factory trigger which was right around 4lbs. The HBI trigger and striker spring just made it better. For the money, it is definitely worth the upgrade.

I did some CGW trigger mods to my SP01 Phantom. While not a striker fired pistol, the SA trigger pull was reduced to around 3 pounds and the DA pull was about 4Ĺ pounds. CGW and HBI make some fantastic mods for the CZ family. The HBI trigger really changes the apparent feel of trigger compared to the stock one due to its construction, angle of pull and the reduction of pull length. CGW goes farther by replacing stock FCG parts with re-engineered parts that address the entire firing sequence. You cannot go wrong with parts from either company.

I'd love to compare yours with my slightly reworked Shadow 2 and see how they compare.
I HATED the Shadow 2 when I first started using it, but after doing some very minor tuning and getting used to the heft, I've grown to love how precise it is. Seriously, it's a fine instrument.

In a pinch, I shoot better with my 75D Compact, but when I get my game face on, there's no comparison. That Shadow 2 will outshoot anything else in my collection, and it's not even close.

I measured about 3.2 lbs on the Shadow in SA, and about 4.5 in DA, and I consider that a bit light, even for my numb old digits.

I have it on a Gen5 Glock 34.... I have thousands of rounds through the Gen3 and had no use for a Gen4. But this Gen5 is an improvement and the MOS is nice
