    So walked into local shop today. They had just gotten in a "CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical" with Tritium sights. What do you think of these? Any reason I should not buy it?

    CZ's are a fine choice in weapons. I have a P-06, which is different in that mine is an alloy frame and chambered in .40 caliber.
    Accurate, reliable just not as much as a value, now that the word is getting around about them, the prices are going up.

    I have the SP01 Tac. Very accurate, more so than I am. A little on the large side but a good range gun. And as a added bonus you can get the Kadet kit to shoot 22lr to fit it. Overall I give it a thumbs up.

    None whatsoever. I also own one and its been outstanding. To me the size/weight is a plus and it fits my hand perfectly. They’re very easy to be accurate with.

    Buy it!

    If you prefer a frame mounted safety over a decocker (no safety - Tactical), the regular SP-01 will do.

    Horrible....

    Trigger on my CZ 75 Compact PCR. I have put in the magic 16# mainspring from Wolffs and fired 600+ rounds and it STILL is the pits. Worst trigger I have on any pistol I have ever bought.

    My experience with CZs was the same as Steve's. I LOVED every aspect of the gun other than the trigger. It was wicked accurate, always reliable, and extremely comfortable in the hand. Had I not gone to the dark side with HKs, I would have sent them to Angus for trigger jobs. Otherwise, it is a first rate weapon!!

    I didn't notice this until just the other day, but they make (or purport to make) an SP-01 with tritium sights that is chambered in .40 S&W.

    Yes...

    Because the 16 pound mainspring will only lighten up the double action pull. The SA pull can be fixed with a competition hammer, which is another easy drop-in part.

    With a little polishing, 15 pound mainspring, and the comp trigger, my CZ75 DA/SA has a trigger that breaks at around 2.5 pounds.

    I will say that stock triggers on most CZ models are not that great.

    Never had a trouble with a CZ trigger,(9 so far), but I must confess, I kinda like the HK vP-70x trigger, too. Only CZ trigger I absolutely could not stand was the CZ-100. The SP01 is an excellent full size duty/range/home defense pistol, a BIT big for CCW, but the proper holster can change that. If you can find one to test fire, do that, but it sounds like a good deal, go for it.
    BTW, for the naysayers on CZ triggers, your time has come - the new CZ P07 has the Omega trigger system, smoother, fewer parts, purported to be the best CZ trigger ever made. Can't wait to get my mitts on one to find out.

    The funny thing is I went to the gun shop to buy one of the new Ruger SR9s. Like everything about the SR9 except the trigger was beyond horrible. So I passed on the SR9 and stated looking at other 9mms. I did noticed the trigger pull on the CZ 75 he had, seemed like they varied a little in quality from gun to gun. Anyone else noticed this with CZ 75?

    Perhaps I will look around some more before deciding. I'm mostly looking for another 9mm range gun here since they are cheaper to shoot than some other pistols I use.

    I have a CZ sp01 with manual safety. Or i should say I had, since my g/f has it right now (She liked it and handled it well so thus it became hers for home defense) :D. I love the pistol, its beyond accurate, and it fits the hand very well. The trigger on mine is much better through use, then it was when I bought it. I will however be upgrading the hammer and cleaning up the insides once I get it back. Considering last time I shot it I was rewarded with a 1 inch 10 shot group at 7 yards, I can only imagine what it will do with a better trigger pull.

    I Have One!

    December 7th, 2007 I picked up my brand new CZ 75 SPO1 Tactical (decocker) in 9x19. When I first got it I wasn't set up to load 9mm Luger so I was shooting WWB 115gr FMJ, Blazer brass and aluminum and S&B. During the first couple boxes of ammo I was getting a stove pipe here & there. I contacted Matt Mink who told me that these guns are sprung for full power ammo that WWB is not and recommended a new recoil spring that he sent me for cheap. Since installing the new spring I havn't had any stoppages. Now I have, I guess 2000 factory rounds and at least that much of my handloads thru it with no problemo.

    For me its my favorite night stand gun for 2 reasons:
    1, The decocker feature allows me to have one safely in the chamber with the hammer decocked. If, during the middle of the night (when I'm groggy and can't see very well) I need it I will not have to look for and fumble with a thumb safety and the D/A trigger is heavy enuff to where I would have to very deliberatly pull it.
    2, The Tritium night sights...If something goes bump in the dark of night my little dog will wake me up but I DO NOT turn on the light. With what I call 'SnakeEyes' the tritium night sights I can see them looking at me, 2 Dots seemingly saying "Here I Am Daddy, lets take look".
    With a round chambered and the hammer decocked and with the night sights I can silently and without giving away my position I can arm myself.
    BTW: I use SPEER 124grain Gold Dot for night stand use.

    Hope this helps
    Angelo

    The CZ 75 series are like many other pistols on the market in the sense that you get a reliable, accurate, durable gun, but there are always things that could be improved. On CZ's it's the SA trigger.

    Good news is, it's probably cheaper than most other pistols to achieve a world class SA trigger on a CZ, the part is about $60.00.

    Night and day.

    CZ SP-01: Used by 4 out of 5 top shooters in the World Shoot 2008 in Bali. Army marksmanship unit is switching to the SP-01. Top shooters with 50,000 rounds or far more through their SP-01s. Six rounds in under four seconds in a sub-5" group at 40 yards by a C-class production division shooter. Yeah, it's a good pistol.

    Some shooters on the Army team have been using CZs for a few years now.

    What a great pistol. I like the original (non-tactical) with the safety instead of the decocker but I often carry DA anyway with my safety-version.

    I like to carry with the smaller, CZ-75 (non-SP-01) mags because they don't stick out of the grip and thus they print less. They also help keep the weight down.
