I have posed this question on another forum: In the case of the "Jerry's Special", also known as the CZ75 SemiCompact, who is this Jerry, and what has he got up his sleeve for us in the way of offerings from CZ's parts bin?

By the way, nice SemiCompact. I own one myself.

Added 18 June 2008 - Forgot to mention that this CZ75 SemiCompact also comes in a two-tone finish, blued slide over a brushed chrome frame. A shooting buddy of mine has one like that. Lucky devil.

I see a number of CZ75 pistols in your future.

From what I understand, a Jerrys Special was a Distributor special build back in 2004.
I didn't know about it until I bought it and did some research. The guys in the store I bought it in didn't know why it was called Jerrys Special either.

This time text year you'll have more than that. They breed in range bags. To prove that point, I'm shopping for a PCR right now to go with my 82 and 75 SA.

Here is my new CZ 75 P-01. I have fired about 300 rounds through it so far, without any problems.

I can now officially become a full member! Having once owned an 85B and letting it go...I recently acquired an SP01 and am back. Such a huge fan of the stuff this company puts out.

Lysander,

My SP-01 is my all time favorite 9mm pistol. I know you'll love yours.

After talking to one of the guys at Angus' Custom Shop, I ordered the CZ manufactured custom hammer, part #16B. I was told this hammer makes a huge difference in the trigger of the 75 series. I just got it and the hammer hooks are cut much differently. In fact, the 16B looks like a 1911 hammer in the engagement/hook areas.

I plan on doing a super polish on the sear face, no alteration of the angle, just a mirror like shine to improve the SA break. I'm also going to drop in a 13 or 15 lb. main spring and see how it feels. I'll report back on the outcome.

I also just got a call my 97B has arrived at the FFL holder, so I'l be pickin' this puppy up this evening.

schmeky... if you're going to make an action shooting or target gun out of that sp-01. just get the 11 pound mainspring and remove the positive camming from the sear. if you're going to carry for protection, just leave it as is, or get a 15/16lb mainspring.

also, if you're truly action/target shooting, i recommend the SA trigger too. pm me if you want more info, i've done it all to my 40b.

Burning,

I assume you're referring to altering the sear angle, correct? I have used a 13# mainspring in my SP and I had one failure to fire in 600 rounds. The primer could have been seated a tad to high (WWB) and a subsequent DA trigger pull fired the round. So I'm a little leary of an 11# spring, but I'm open to suggestions.

I ruined the hammer on my 75 trying to remove some of the positive camming. Did you use the info on the CZ forum about trigger jobs to alter your sear? I'm OK with a little camming, but none would be preferrable.

yes, i used the info from the CZ forum. a note on modifying the sear angle on the sear itself - i sanded literally 10 passes, reassembled, and repeated about eight times until i got what i wanted. it'd be difficult and expensive to replace the sear if you remove too much, but it's worth it.

i did the 'pen launch' test. i put a bic pen in the barrel, and pulled the trigger. i measured how far the pen flew out by eyesight. with the 11 lb mainspring, it flew out nearly the same amount. with the stock hammer, the 11 lb mainspring just coughs up the pen. i think the comp hammer helps make up for weaker mainsprings.

i also had to trim some of the sear up top where it meets the safety. i had to work that several times too until i got what i wanted. since the hooks on the comp hammer are so small, it's crucial that when the safety is engaged, that you are absolutely unable to manually lift the sear with a pick from behind to let the hammer fall on its own. this is especially true if you removed your firing pin block like i did - but again, i'm action shooting - FPB removal is absolutely a no-no for anything but action/target shooting only.

Burning,

I'm right with. I understand the relationship of hammer engagement and how alteration in this area can/will affect the relationship of the sear "tab" that infaces with the manual safety lever.

This is slow critical work to make it functional and be safe. I'm all about safety first.

So you "squared" up the sear face? Did you alter the hammer hooks as well?

no - i did not square up the face. it still has some angle in it, but i reduced it somewhere between 1/3rd and 1/2 the angle - but don't hold me to it, yours could be different.

i only micro-polished the hammer hooks with 800 grit until i saw a mirror looking back at me.

Congratulations ZeSpectre...

Gotta congratulate ZeSpectre on the great job he's done putting together this CZ Club!!!...Been great reading his CZ posts over the years, and know how he loves the gun! Any man that ends his thread with one of the great qoutes (he gave me permission to use it awhile back and ALL my boys have got it and have heard it over and over!!) is the best!... I'd love to be a part of the Club since I've now bought seven CZs (gave two 'dups' away as gifts to family) and just love 'em to death! There's nothing I can tell you guys about CZs you don't already know... IMHO they're the best gun out there... the solid metal, the great quality/workmanship, accuracy, durability, and on and on and on.... Own the 75B Stainless, 75BD, 75-Kadet, SP-01 Tactical, and my 'little adorable baby' P-01!! Own a couple other semis (SIG, FNH, Beretta, etc.)... NOTHING comes close to the CZs... would NEVER sell 'em or trade' em... PERIOD! Just a total joy to shoot and clean! As a friend tells me "Easy to find you at the range, you're the one with that big '****-ass' grin on your face!"... YEP, that's me... and it's a CZ GRIN!! Glad to be aboard.

Sheesh GZOh, now you are making ME want to go out and buy another CZ! <grin>. Admittedly I wouldn't mind a P-01 with a laser but I suspect getting that will probably be a long time coming.

And a BIG "Welcome to the club" to

NC-Mike
lysander
and anyone else I've missed in the meanwhile!

That 'Little' P-01...

Ze, I tell ya that little P-01 is really one helluva gun!!! Thought after the 75B and the SP-01 Tactical, nothing could 'come close'... but this P-01 has! It's just a great, accurate shoot. When its really broken-in (1000+ rnds) I think it's gonna replace my SIG-P229 as my 'night-stand gun.' The CZ-GZ

Very nice set of grips on that CZ82, ARTiger. The wood tones complement the pistol finish in a very subtle manner.
