    Yes.

    I ordered and installed the Angus Custom Shop competition hammer in my CZ-75. I also had a small assortment of Wolf mainsprings, a 13#, 15#, and the stock 20#.

    The CZ competition hammer was left completely stock. As a side note, the comp hammer is cut very much like a 1911. I did not modify the new hammer in any way since the hooks are already very shallow.

    With the 13# mainspring and the new hammer, this CZ has an absolutely amazing SA left-off. It's almost to light, I'm estimating around 3 lbs. I plan on shooting it this weekend to make sure the primer strike is sufficient.

    The CZ hammer is about $62.00 to your door, and the Wolf spring, if memory serves me, is around $5.00. So you can have a world class SA/DA CZ-75 for under $70.00 (with your own labor).

    The difference must be experienced to be believed.

    Sounds interesting. Does this go for the CZ 75 P-01, as well?

    Absolutely, I also removed the firing pin block and its lever, so the trigger reset has shortened obviously. I deburred and hard chromed all the internals. When my Angus hammer has arrived, I had to work on the hooks to prevent hammer follow since I wanted to stay with the stock mainspring. The Angus hammer decreases the take up and camming in the single action mode obviously.
    When the job was completed, the single action trigger was just 2.5 lbs with the Lymann calculater. But the more important part, it was pretty crisp, clean and buttery, with pretty short reset and without the camming in the single action mode.
    Schmeky, I am sure you will enjoy your CZ so much, absolutely.
    The difference can not be understood without handling and shooting a worked on CZ with an Angus hammer. Regards.

    LUPUS,

    Thanks for your input. The difference is so dramatic, I didn't want anyone to think the result was overstated on my part.

    Now I have accuracy, ergonomics, and and incredibly smooth and crisp action.

    Does anyone know if the 75 series competition hammer will fit the 97B?
