    I bought a CZ-75SA a couple weeks ago and couldn't find an allen wrench to adjust the trigger (it's adjustable for overtravel) until yesterday. I tightened the set screw in the trigger until the hammer wouldn't drop when the trigger was pulled and then loosened the screw just enough to let the hammer drop.

    The thing is, when I pull the hammer back with the trigger depressed, I can feel and hear the sear sliding over the hammer hooks. The hammer always falls when I pull the trigger, but I'm wondering if there's any reason to loosen the screw a little more so that this doesn't happen. I realize the sear slides over the hooks every time I manually rack the slide or pull the hammer back under normal conditions, but I'm wondering if there could be any adverse affects from this happening every time the slide cycles.

    On my SA's Id adjust it like you but back the screw off 1/2 to a full turn. You dont want it THAT close. For a general/carry/defense gun thats the way you want it. If you are competing then you want it as close as possible and a trigger job with 1-2 # trigger is acceptable.
    Lube the gun well and adjust the trigger so its not that close. The sound you hear is because the sear is moved all of the way on its axis with the trigger pulled. so its grating on the hammer. Dont worry about it.
    Shoot well.
