    That P-07 is a sweet looking gun! When are they expected to hit the market? I just got the CZ catalog in the mail a few weeks ago and didn't see anything about them.

    I believe the P-07 is the new, polymer-framed version of the P-01, in 9mm. It reportedly can be had with either a manual safety or decocker and is under review by ATF for points. I hope we can see it hit the stores in 2009.

    Looks like it may not take the standard compact mags. If not - ugh. I don't need yet ANOTHER series of mags to stock.

    Looks like they may have beefed up the extractor design with a conventional external pivot. Flimsy extractors has been a weakpoint of the CZ and that should make it more attactive as a service pistol. It also seems they have gone with the now conventional large square locking lug which you see in Glocks, Sigs, H&Ks, and the M&P. That is a big service pistol plus. Although the classic Browning inner-slide circular locking lug helps with accuracy, it is finicky about dust and is easily prone to misalignment in sand tests leading to malfunction, additional wear and tear, and accuracy problems.

    I wish they had used a rounded trigger guard though. The Novak rear sight is also annoying.

    I am looking forward VERY much to trying one out... Also, it will be switchable, decocker or standard safety, same sidearm.

    awesome to see it in the flesh! i think the big trigger guard is to accomodate gloves. and it make for more hurt when hitting someone with a sharp corner, yes?

    cool

    Looks chunky but I like it. Might be a lot like my USP that gets shot a lot but never carried. Been in CCW mode for a while. I think the RAMI is better suited for that purpose.

    I have confirmed the P07 does not take the CZ-75 Compact magazines. This is a totally new model, with some base in the CZ-75, but it is not a gimmicked up reconfigured CZ-75, regardless of this pre-production slide stamp. The new trigger system is said to be outstanding, can't wait to give it a whirl.

    CZ's exemplify what a pistol SHOULD look like.

    I equate CZ with sexy.

    But that is one FUGLY gun!

    Totally does not appeal to me. I don't like the plastic guns in general, but this thing is hideous. I'll take a normal, steel one, thanks.

    Aside from the trigger guard I like it. If it proves to be as reliable as previous CZ designs it should be an excellent pistol.

    When I squint, I don't mind the form. But overall wayyyy too busy for my tastes. Too much clutter. There's something to be said for "clean lines". I think they drank too much HK P30 KoolAid.

    That "serrated-looking" tac rail is hideous (as is on the SP01 Phantom). Why couldn't they stay with the understated, classic-looking single notch of the P01?

    Maybe the production model will be toned down a bit.

    You know, the more I look at it, the more I question that trigger guard. I think that squared corner of it would look a lot better rounded. I'm sure that would defeat its purpose, but still...

    it's gotta be squared for pistol-whipping.

    damn about the new mags. hopefully there's still hi-caps available. if they're new mags, i hope they're a smidgen wider so i can get 16+1 of 40 cal as a minimum.

    Id shoot it. That does suck about no mag compatibility with other CZ models.

    Any idea on pricing? Think it will be reasonable like CZs are now?

    If its comparable to the HK P30(performance not just looks), and half the price, which do you think Id buy? LOL

    hmm, it looks interesting at least.

    I'm going to reserve judgment until we get some reviews of how it shoots. I was thinking about getting a P01 some day, but if this shoots at least as good, and is thinner for carry, I might get the P07 instead. Even if it is ugly:neener:

    If I am lucky enough to aquire one, ( Santa, oh Santa?!?!?! :) ), I'll post detailed pics and range reviews, absolutely.
    I don't know when they will be available, though, early '09, I think.
