if you want to literally install the trigger... it's the cost of the trigger from angus. tools needed would be pin punch, and maybe some 400-600 grit sandpaper if needed. mine was a tight fit, so i took a little of the finish off at the top around the trigger pin and it slid smoothly after that. i have a thread installing the trigger over at CZF and CZS. wonderful with the comp hammer if you have it already. if you have an unmodified stock hammer, i would suppose the trigger pull would be longer since the hammer hooks are taller.

the trigger iirc was 40 plus ship. while you're there, get the $3 extra power extractor spring, and any rubber magazine basepads if you sport shoot.

sorry for all the edits, i'm still groggy from the 12 hour timezone lag lol.

So without the hammer the trigger wouldn't be as light?....or just at a different position in the trigger travel? $40 would be nice for a drop in...might even get crazy and buy two like you...got to resist...got to resist....

Yep, not really lighter. Maybe shorter because you can adjust out some of the slop needed for the DA/SA mechanism.

To make it lighter you need to alter the geometry between the sear and the hammer. However, simply smoothing/polishing things will also help.

the comp hammer does two things:

1. repositions the pivot points to reduce effort needed to work the mainspring. this translates to a lighter DA pull.
2. different profile hammer hooks whih are much shorter, reducing the amount of rise in the sear to release the hammer. this results in a short and crisp SA break.

you may not need the comp hammer if you go SAO... the reason i say this is because you won't need the lightened DA pull, you only need to move the sear off the hammer hook. so, with careful hands, you can shorten the hammer hooks on the factory hammer and get the same clean and crisp break as found on the comp hammer.

that said, i'm going to move the comp hammer to my carry 40b and the reprofiled factory hammer to my uspsa shooting 40b, since it's already SAO.

if you get the comp hammer, there are two important things you must know:
1. you will need to modify the safety. to know what i'm talking about, field strip the gun and look at the safety and sear. work the safety on and off. note how the safety will block the sear from moving when engaged. with the comp hammer, the sear sits higher on the hammer, and the safety arm that interferes against the sear will need to be shortened ever so slightly. it's no big deal, just remove very, very little at a time until the engagement just begins to work, then leave it. the safety can be engaged hammer up or down.
2. if you will continue to use DA/SA, i strongly recommend using a 15 or 16 pound mainspring to further lighten the DA pull. there's a mainspring calibration pack that has a 13/15/16 pound mainspring... but here's my experience... with the 13# spring, i got a lot of what i thought were duds. i eventually found by collecting them that i had light strikes. the dud rate was about 1 or 2 per hundred, sometimes more. i switched to the 16# spring, and i never had a dud again.

on the positive cam action:

i believe it's in there as a safety aspect, but in a target type trigger it's less than desirable. to fix this, i changed the angle on the sear face that holds the hammer hook. again, i worked very, very slowly until i got neutral engagement. what this means, is that as the sear lifts off of the hammer, the hammer no longer moves backwards. you must be careful, because you don't want negative engagement, where the hammer moves down as the sear lifts up. this will lead to hammer follow and/or full automatic operation. this is done at your own risk.

yeah..I am thinking I like the silver ones too..

the grip tape gives me a little more grip, than the black aluminum checkering.

yep..the top of the slide is drilled and tapped for a rail. works pretty well.

i love traction tape grips. just sucks i can't put them on my carry, lol. i've got some scrapes on the inside of my arm near the elbow from going to matches... the traction tape on my 40b, while holstered, will sometimes rub the inside of my arm while holstered and it's given me some nasty scratches before, haha!

The grip tape on my 40B and 97B have made a huge difference for me.

I dont think I posted a pic in here yet of my SP-01.
So here it is:


Thats 38rds of Blazer Brass at 10yds. The group would have stayed tighter if I hadnt started to shoot faster between shots.

Nice Shootin', Hog.

I had my first malfunction with my CZ the other day. It happened at an IPSC match. I was shooting a qualifier and could only use my weak hand. I believe I limp-wristed, since there was incomplete extraction. Never had a problem after that.

Very nice Rich!

I saw a CZ 75, shiny blue finish, easily 99%, for 350 dollars today in a shop I frequent.

My girlfriend is now hooked on handgun shooting. She's already gone through my small stock of .38 special and now is going through my 9mm stocks. She loves my CZ75, and now wants that one in the shop.

Lord help me.

Added to the stable with a CZ-75BD "Police" model this weekend (lightly used from a trusted friend).

So that makes 4 all keeping each other company.
CZ-52
CZ-82
CZ-75b (.40 S&W)
CZ-75BD Police

And to my astonishment my wife came forth with "hey, I LIKE this one" about the "police" while we were at the range.

CM Rich,

I have to add to what the others have said. That's one fine lookin' CZ. Can you believe some people think CZ's are ugly?

Thanks guys!

I need to mention that I'm re-refinishing it, though. I marred it all up during reassembly (didn't wait long enough for it to dry completely), and I'm going to attempt a better polished blue look this time.

Good thing I had alot of material left over from the first attempt.
