    I believe starting in 2013 uspsa production division guns require a minimum 3lb trigger pull for the first pull.

    That rule was introduced and then repealed because almost all the production shooters were against it.

    Sooner you get a pistol the sooner you can start, looks like the CZ may take a few months. I went the G34 route to get started asap, I understand it's available in a Gen 4 now. Really easy to do your own upgrades, trigger work, sights, etc on the Glock. Magazines, you may want 8-10 for a match are relatively cheap and they are tuff enough to drop on gravel and step on. I am a CZ fan, but to get a CZ with all the allowed mods, and magazines you may have enought in it to buy two G34s. The best DA/SA trigger I have ever shot was on a CZ SP01 from Angus' Custom Shop, cost around $1400 I was told. Too rich for my wallet, Competition is hard on pistols things wear out, break. On a Glock or 1911 I can fix most problems, or perform my own upgrades, parts are everywhere, tools are everywhere. I went the quick and easy way and have a Production Division pistol that I shoot as well as any other 9mm pistol I have shot... well almost as well as my STI 9mm 1911.

    Yep. It was strange but it seems like when talking to people (both online and in real life), the only people who supported this rule were people who didn't shoot production, and people who did all thought it a bad idea.

    Interesting! I'll bet those Limited guys were tired of seeing production guys finish higher in the overall combined results hahaha.

    Well, I just got a cz75 sp-01 with night sights. I know this puts me out of ssp unless I do some weight reduction, but I should be fine for the other competitions the club offers. Pretty pumped and cannot wait to shoot the thing!

    Anyone running one of these? What weight reduction have you done?

    congrats!

    For IDPA I don't know if it's legal do to the full length dust cover. As far as weight reduction goes, I recommend checking out the brianenos forums or czforums.us for help.

    ask BCRider

    Justin, iirc BCrider has put a SP01 on a weight loss program and has run it in SSP for awhile.

    Everything I read say for ssp it only needs a diet. ESP has the full lenght dust cover but if I can get it down on weight and run in ssp then it qualifies for ESP based on what I read. This is a small local club so not 100% how closely they follow these rules.

    I know rules are rules, but I wouldn't stress about weight on a local level.

    Finally put some rounds through the gun last night! It feels great. I brought some handload a and factory rem. umc... Looks like I'll have to do some load developement. The cz would not fully feed my standard load of 4.5 bullseye, 1.145 oal, 115gr Missouri bullet company. Seems like the OAL is to long.

    In an SP-01 I load RN plated 125s to 1.130" and they feed very reliably.
    They still feed if a bit longer, but at 1.135" I start getting some hickups so I stick with 1.130".

    Books says COL for 115s is 1.090", but you could probably go longer.

    1.145" was perfect for my SR9. I'll just have to spend some time to find what the sp-01 likes

    Did some reading and it is common place to have to seat below 1.1" with cz's and lead bullets. Did the drop test and 1.05" was perfect

    I'd go with the G17. The ammo is cheap, and the gun is a primo defensive pistol. If you get some Federal or Winchester 115 gr JHP +p+ ronds for SD, you'd be all set. That is what I use.
