Those springs?

Try something lighter than the factory hammer spring. Wolff will have a variety available.

www.gunsprings.com

20lbs. is considered factory spec for the 9mm, and they have 15,16,17,18,and 19 lb. springs, plus some higher.

Don't go too far below the recommended factory weight. I'd order a 17 lb. spring and a 16lb. and try the lightest first. A 15lb spring would lighten the trigger considerably, but may not have enough force to ignite all primers.

Try it with your regular ammo, and anything else you might use -- or, if it's primarily a range gun (not used for carry or home defense), just shoot it and keep the original spring for replacement if it doesn't work right.

Getting the old spring out takes three hands. There's a little tab on the bottom of the mag break that complicates things. (Check the parts diagram in the manual.) I simply take that tab off (break it off with pliers.) The mag break will still work perfectly, and it makes getting the main spring out and back in much easier.

Not having a .40 cal. pistol was a good reason to bring this one home today. I have a 97B and a 75B SA as well. I'll take it to the range tomorrow.

Are there truly all-stainless CZ pistols? As in solid stainless-steel frames?

Turn off your caps lock. Typing in all capital letters is the same as yelling. You wouldn't yell through a whole conversation. Don't use capital letters for a whole post.

Plus it is hard on the eyes.

Considering he used lower case for the first letter of each sentence, I suspect caps lock was on by accident.

Longtime, that's classy, form and function.

I carry my P-07 with the decocker. I found the safety a little too small. I had trouble hitting it solidly everytime.

+1 on that. I grew up on Sigs, etc. with decockers so all of my CZ pistols have them too.

I never owned a pistol with a decocker until I bought the PCR and then the 40P. I do love them. Previously I wouldn't consider a decocker but now they have their place and perform wonderfully.

I have a CZ 452 Scout 22LR rimfire. It's one of my favorite target shooting guns. I use it all the time with my boys. They like the short 12" LOP stock; when I use it, I strap on a Pachmayr leather recoil pad to take the LOP out to 14".

I also installed the Brooks trigger kit and have some scope rings, too. What a great gun; if I were a cowboy, this is the gun I'd want to have strapped to my saddle.

I bought a Scout a few years ago for the Grandkids to shoot. I have to admit that I've taken in on walks around the property. Short LOP, but it's light and extremely accurate.

To "fix" the short LOP on the Scout when I shoot it w/ my boys, I just strap on one of these:
