New CZ 75 P-07


October 12, 2012, 11:59 PM
I was in need of a 9mm after giving my Glock 17 to my nephew. My wife is starting to take shooting much more seriously but is a little recoil sensitive, and a 9mm is about the most she can comfortably handle, and my revolvers are just too heavy for her to hold comfortably. I have been wanting to try a CZ 75 for a while now, I generally prefer metal frames to polymer, but I had read about the P-07 and it had had all the features I prefer, and being polymer it was light enough for my wife. I also wanted something non striker fired. I don't have anything against them really, just a matter of personal preference. I found one at my LGS for a great price. I really couldn't believe how affordable these are, and I really like the design. The trigger is just awesome and the low bore axis makes it a pleasure to shoot. The ergonomics are great too with plenty of texture on the grip, but still remaining very comfortable for my wife. We took it to the range and put 200 rounds of Federal 115 grain FMJ and Hi-Shok JHP. This pistol performed flawlessly and is very, very accurate. I am normally a 1911 and revolver guy but this gun works very well for me, and is a very comfortable shooter for my wife. If you are like me and prefer a hammer to a striker, I highly recommend that you consider the P-07. It is a fantastic gun and a terrific value in my humble opinion. The only negative is that magazines are around $45 each, hopefully there will be after market ones out soon. I am sure this gun has been talked about before, but I wanted to share my experience with it.

I have one too, though mine is black not two-tone green & black like yours.
I agree with the great ergonomics, it's a great reliable gun.

Everyone seems to mention "low bore axis" with cz...but every picture I see of a cz shows a bore axis comparable to a Sig P226 (high).

I don't know if the "low bore axis" is real or not ...maybe it's an illusion from the way the CZ slide sits inside the frame rather than outside as is most common with semiautos -- especially American ones.
However, it is nevertheless a fine gun.

You might try Greg Cote LLC for magazines. I buy all mine there but I don't have the PO7 so I don't know if Greg carries that one or not. His magazines for the 75 series run from $19 to $29 depending on capacity. His site's down now so I couldn't see if he has mags for your model.

The low bore axis on CZ's is for real. Measure one. You can see it on that P-07. I don't know what you're looking at.

I am.

And there is no way you could fit that hammer in the same space of glock slide.

I have a P-07. The Omega trigger system on this weapon is really good. These guns had some teething problems, and visually they are not beauty queens, but I really like mine. One feature of this gun is that the ambi decocker can be quickly swapped out for an ambi safety in just a few minutes. The parts are included in the box with the gun.

The bore axis is lower. However, the grips are so well-designed that I imagine that contributes to overall ergonomics.
