    I want a CZ75 D PCR Compact, but with a safety instead of the decocker. Does this exist?

    Nope. It's also not very easy to switch one. IIRC, you end up having to use Tanfoglio safety parts. Needless to say, that could void the warranty.

    How do I know? I would own one already... ;)

    Aye-aye! However the decocker model is very good, I feel quite confident that you will shortly forget why you didn't want a safety model. Plus from the halfcock notch the DA trigger pull is way better than the DA from full rest pull. Speaking of, I should probably use some snap caps tonight!

    So, does the Decocker lower the hammer to the
    Half-cock ( I call it a quarter cock ) position?

    I debated on the 75D PCR w/Decocker vs a Compact
    with a safety, but steel frame and decided I would want the
    alloy frame for CCW - and live with the decocker since I'd
    want it DA first trigger pull from CCW anyway.

    I carry the PCR and I like the decocker much better than a manual safety, it just takes a little getting use to........do it!

    The PCR decocker drops it to half cock, you depress the lever until it activates and then you allow it to return upwards, lowering the hammer at the same rate as the lever.

    I have the alloy PCR for carry and love it, the de=cocker is great, I like it better then my 75 B SS.
    And I love the 75 B, so that is all I have to say about that.

    Ask Angus Hobdell at www.czcustom.com. I inquired about a PCR with the steel frame of the CZ 75 Compact. He said it could be done. If you insist on the safety instead of the decocker, just get the steel framed Compact instead of the PCR. The only difference is a couple of ounces of weight.

    Can you put a slide from a Compact onto a PCR? That would be an interesting frankenCZ. I would think so as I've put my PCR slide on my 75B and my 75B slide on my PCR.

    I prefer the decocker myself.

    While 99% of the time decocking a gun is no problem, if I ever did have to use, say a CZ Compact, for self defense or any high adrenaline situation, I don't want to be trying to decock without a decocker available.

    Also, oddly enough, I find that I shoot possibly even better in DA mode, so I spend quite a bit of time decocking after each shot, at the range.

    Yep. The only problem you will ever run into is that there are actually Type A Compacts. That is, the PCR frame has the lever for the firing pin block, so it needs a Type B Compact slide to fit.
