I guess you can say I settled for the P-01 because I wasn't willing to pay a premium price for a PCR. The P-01 has some additional "features", like the accessory rail, that I didn't need/want.
Don't take that as a complaint. I'd be happy with any of CZ's 75 series. I'm a big fan of decocker style pistols and CZ has a lot to choose from.
I dont use or need the accessory rail either, and therefore would prefer a smaller, sleeker frame. But on the bright side. The rail does add about an inch more of contact between the slide and the rail, and SHOULD, by all rights, help make it MORE accurate than the other 75 compacts.

And we like the CZ decockers too. There are 5 in the house.

I have NOT seen a PCR for sale NIB for a couple years. I wondered if they discontinued it due to the P-01 being noted as its replacement.

A couple weeks ago, an LGS here had a NIB - PCR advertised on their website. I called them and they said it was sold. I doubt they ever had it. They still have it posted for sale, and a closer look at their pic shows the date on the frame as 2013.

Maybe EASTMAN can weigh in on this. Im still wondering if they are building the PCR. All Ive seen in a couple years have been 75 D & B compacts & P-01's. And the 75 D's have been pretty rare, but Buds Gun gets one from time to time.

Take a look on GB. there are a bunch of PCR's NIB for sale. At least one is dated 2017.

This is usually the way I plan things. When I'm looking, there aren't any available, or they're overpriced.
Once I stop looking they are everywhere. If I decide on selling, the price of new guns should drop by 50%.

Will do that. ( I dont use GB ) Thats some good news to me at any rate. That answers the question whether they are still building them. Which is a good thing IMO.

I like my PCR so much, I may buy another just to have a spare.

edit to add..

You are correct. While most were dated 2015 & 14, the first one listed is a 2017.
It has a few minor differences. The serations on the grips rear are checkered instead of ribbed. The rear sight is the blacked out competition type.

It does have a stamp I cant quite make out. Cant tell if its the "N" for nato or not.
Sharp looking pistol though.

PCR is definitely still a cataloged model for 2017. However, that doesn't make them common.

I've been thinking more about getting a PCR just to have a PCR. As much as I like the P-01, I like the PCR more. Ten years ago I'd have both, but now I'm really trying to cut back.
Frankly I'm surprised but pleased that CZ is still producing steel and aluminum frame pistols instead of abandoning them for the newer plastic design.

I don't necessarily dislike plastic, but I much prefer aluminum. I also like DA/SA pistols much more than striker fired, with "Glock" style safety/triggers.
The choices for me are dwindling, which encourages me to buy now, while they're still available.
Darn that N word, (need).
As noted, just because they're available, that doesn't make them common.

The PCR has a few things that most 75 compacts generally dont have.

1. The snag free night sights. Mine were pretty good night sights. Way better than the base grade 3 dot most come with. ( I still swapped them out for TruGlo TFX because my eye sight is going to hell it seems. )

2. Loaded chamber indicator. ( Which I really like and wish ALL our other 75 models had.)

3. Deep ribbed serrations on the front and rear back straps. Combined with the rubber grips, it makes the PCR REALLY sticky in the holster or in your hand. It dont try to slide around in your hand while firing or manipulating the controls. And stays put REALLY well in the holster.

4. Extended mag release.

There is definitely a few advantages to having the PCR versus the other 75 compacts.
It kinda has the whole package right outta the box IMO.

I for one am really glad to hear CZ is still building it.

FYI - The stock sights on the PCR are the standard CZ phosphorescent (glow in the dark) type, not true night sights (tritium). They do have the snag resistant design.

The ones on my PCR glowed pretty good. Kinda yellowish tint though.

The wife Rami "D" came with combat night sights. I assumed they were tritium.
They glow pretty good also.

Thanks. I wasnt sure what the difference was. I just knew the Rami's were a little better.

I like Green sights. For some reason I can see green really good.

Red, yellow & white,, not so much.

Good rule of thumb - if you pull the pistol out of the safe in a dark room and the sights glow - Tritium. If you can make them glow after shining a bright flashlight on them - Phosphorescent.

Freshly charged up phosphorescent sights can be brighter than tritium (at first) but will fade quickly.

Factory CZ night sights are generally Meprolight TruDots.

Eastman is correct. And just to add, yes, the Rami BD comes with factory Meprolights.

CZ called them "combat night sights" in the Rami 2075 D specs.

Nice to know exactly what they are.
