CZ 75 P-01

CZ 75 P-01.

CCI Blazer Brass, 115 grain FMJ. 15 yards. Standing, unsupported.

I bought this CZ last year. I have not really spent alot of time on it. Had some time and a nice day today, and I wanted to burn some powder while I had the place to myself.

It shoots really nice. I like it. The CZ 75 P-01 comes standard with (2) 14 round mags, which run fine. I also tried a couple different 16 round mags I have as spares, just to make certain they will run in the P-01 no problem. This puts the round total somewhere around 400. No failures of any type .
I did swap the mainspring out from factory to a #13 CZ Custom. This puts the trigger somewhere about 4 lbs, and REALLY SMOOTH on DA, and kinda light on SA. ( which is the way I like em )
Sights are 3 dot tritium. I want to swap them out for TruGlo TFX night sights, which is what I have on my other CZ 75's.

All in all, I would rate the CZ 75 P-01 as a very nice Compact 9 mm.
It has nice fire control, excellent ergonomics, and minimal recoil.
I really DONT care about the light rail, as its not something I would use. ( no need with TFX sights). I like the smaller slimmer profile of my CZ 75 PCR better. I have not carried the P-01, so have no input on whether you can notice the difference between the light rail, and no light rail.
As you can see, it is VERY accurate and groups well.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for a small reliable 9mm.

I generally like to run about 500 rounds through an auto BEFORE I use it as an EDC. The CZ 75 P-01 looks to be another accurate & reliable shooter from CZ. I see no reason not to add it to my rotation with my 75 PCR and 75 BD.

Nice looking pistol. A friend let me shoot his 75 and I really liked it overall. Classic looks and a great shooter... And cheap to run! I can see one in my future....

Very nice grouping and great looking pistol. You now have me drooling for a CZ. Although it doesn't take much for any gun to get that reaction from me.

Thanks White Squirrel. They are the most accurate semi automatic pistols Ive ever owned or seen. So the CZ's make that part fairly easy.

But I will warn you. CZ's are also addictive as hell.

We have 7 now.

Neon Horse,,

Anyone Ive ever handed one of mine too liked it. Several have bought their own.

Ive noticed this year, the 75 series seem hard to find.

Buds just got in a whole slew of used 75 series. Some are rated "fair to poor" condition. But they seem to be doing a little goughing @ about $400, when you can buy a new one for $550 - $600.

Another pointer that the new ones are hard to come by.

I have no idea how the P-9's and P-7's are. I would like to try them. But I have stuck to buying 75 series so all my spare mags work in everything we have.

Last fall I had a NIB 97 BD in my hand at the LGS. I thought about laying it away,, but didnt.

Now I certainly wish I would have. They are impossible to find.

You need to do a range report for us on it.

Wait a few months. They come over in batches, then disappear quickly. (I have both the B and BD versions)

I have shot a 97 B, and it was a really smooth & accurate shooter. I would prefer a 97 BD though. Its a big gun, but a nice one. I would prefer the 97 BD over a standard 1911.

I would also like a SP -01 Tactical, which is also a decocker.
My LGS has one in .40. But all my stuff is 9mm, so I want a 9.
I do have a question whether the standard 75 series 16 round mags fit the SP-01 though. I think they should, but Im not certain.

Last year, our LGS's seemed to get the NIB CZ's in about March. But here we are in May, and no joy.
They also got some in about November in years past. But last November nothing but P-07 & P09's. And mostly in 40 cal.

I was kinda thinking since they built that new factory in Brazil, they may be easier to get. But it seems the opposite happened.

Shipments from CZ come over every couple of weeks, but then go to all of the distributors to fill standing orders.

The standard magazines for the 75 work fine in the SP-01. The full name is actually "CZ75 SP-01". If you buy the SP-01 tactical in .40, you can just drop in a 9mm barrel and recoil spring. (The .40 can convert to 9mm, but a 9mm won't convert to .40 because of the size of the breechface) The SP-01 .40 magazines have witness holes on the left side for .40 and 9mm on the right.

Have never shot or even handled a CZ. There are nice looking pistols with a great reputation, I need to take another look at them.

I demo for CZ, but unfortunately I think the two scheduled June events will be too long of a drive from TN (Northern IL and Central IL).
