Title: Say thanks to Angus!
Post by: armoredman on September 06, 2009, 06:14:45 AM
Angus has an incredibly busy schedule shooting for CZ and running CZcustom, I think it's only fair we publicly say THANK YOU! once in a while for him giving some time for us here. Thanks, Angus!

I thought the article in Front Sight about Angus this month was great.  I only wish it was longer.  I'm still trying to figure out a way to swing a business trip to the Mesa, AZ so I could visit his shop in person.

Thanks Angus!
I got my SP01 from your shop back in March and I love it.  I started shooting USPSA three months ago and I'm hooked.

  Angus,

Your personal skills, customer oriented management of the Custom Shop, and willingness to try to personally help even old 'C' shooters make this forum like an extension of the good gun ranges we all remember--great people who love the sport and are ready to help all comers.

Thank you

Indeed!! :) It is rare and wonderful to have the owner of a US gun importer/producer at our fingertips who answers questions and gives technical advise so willingly. Kudos to the folks at Ghost Holster too. Friendly and helpful service despite the chaotically busy last year. BTW it is a great business model too. I have more CZ's than my wife would like to know about thanks to the forum and Angus' accessability  ;D

Just wanted to convey my thanks and appreciation for all the advice that Angus has provided.  I admit that i've learned quite a bit from the site but their are times when a more direct answer is needed and Angus is the person to ask.

Thanks again.

Angus,

You da-man!  Thanks so much for helping get the ball rolling on the approval for the P-07 for USPSA production class shoots.  I received the email traffic today.

Hi, Although I have not personally dealt with Angus, I'd like to thank him for all his help on the CZ Forum by offering to send him one of my Shooboy Midnite-Pro Gunsmithing Hammers at no cost to him. So Angus, if you'd please email me with your shipping address I'd be more than happy to send one out to you. Thanks for your time and consider this a gift from your friends on the Forum, Randy aka Shooboy

Thanks to Angus and the fellows (esp Rob) at CZ Custom/Ghost for showing me some fine firearms and answering a lot of questions (that must be pretty old by now).

I'm saving up for some goodies and I'll be in any day now to drop off a pistol in need of some CZC magic.

I just recently saw the well done video on the internet with Angus and the French shooter Daguenel from back in 2007 IPSC Europe.
Upon viewing it I quickly realized two things.
1) ANGUS IS THE MAN.
2) I NEED A SHADOW ASAP.

I agree Angus and the folks at CZ Custom are fabulous! I knew I had to have a CZ after I got to try one with an Angus trigger job at an USPSA match here in Texas. Butter, simply butter.

I couldn't be happier with my SAO - 75B .40. It shoots so much better than I, it's pulling me up the ladder and it feels soooo goooood!

CZ Custom shop Rocks. In the last month Ive made several calls and #1 some one always answers the phone! #2 They always have the parts I need. #3 They know what there talking about! #4 Everytime I requested overnight shipping it was at my door the next day!
Called Tuesday and they overnighted me 2000 rounds of Starline Brass and it was here Wednesday at 2pm. To me that is Priceless! You guys have your poop together thanks for Awesome customer SUPPORT!

To all of the folks at CZ Custom(Rob,Eric & Angus)

It has been the longest 2 weeks but it was well worth the wait.  Got my SP01 back from getting all the goodies put on and other things that needed a little bit of attention. Above and beyond is probably the shortest and easiest way to describe it.  Thank you for doing an excellent job.  You guys are the best. 


Thanks again,
Jason

Ordered some cocobolo grips for my P-01 from Angus last week, got them two days later- they are beautiful, fast turn around too (well I'm just down the freeway from him- but fast nevertheless).  They are absolutely beautiful.  Next time I'm up in Phoenix I plan on dropping in and checking their place out, maybe even get some custom work done- trigger job maybe?

Thanks Angus for all the great products you've been able to provide us CZ junkies with. It's been a pleasure seeing your site grow from just a few pistols to the huge selection of custom guns and accessories you've available now. Hope to visit your shop soon but trying to save up ahead because I know I won't be able to leave empty handed. Just recieved my new Accu-Shadow that I've been dying to get my hands on and when it arrived I felt like a kid on Christmas morning waiting to open my presents. It was also a pleasant suprize to see your name on the final inspection target and that you've actualy held it, maybe some of your mojo rubbed off on it. Keep up the fantastic work you and all the guys at the shop been doing.
Thank you!!!

EVERYONE AT CZ CUSTOMS, not just Angus!

Thank you for working on my SP-01. I had it sent in for comp hammer, short reset, sights, and some other stuff. The pistol came back today and it is simply amazing, if it wasn't 34 below up here I would be out at the range and probably wouldn't leave until my ammo stockpile is gone. Your guys were very helpful and responsive, even when I emailed in to have my order changed. Huge props to you guys!

Angus and the gang remind me of the gunsmith that started me on the road when I was 12 in simpler times. There is lot more information here than we had in the 1950's. Just the catalog provides a great deal of information that's hard to find on other guns. This Form with expert answers is a true goldmine for shooter and a extremely good reason for owing a CZ pistol. It's great not having to read the information through and #$  filter.

Angus's insight as a shooter, gunsmith and owner of CZ Custom on this from is unique for any firearm. The words "not financial practical" are not heard often enough from others.

Thanks and Good luck in all things.

Post by: CZ Homer222 on June 23, 2016, 05:59:20 PM
I'll say thanks for the smoking awesome CZ 75 Compact I just got back from CZ Customs.

I got the full "Shadow" work over on it and even with a firing pin safety block, the trigger is absolutely unbelievable.

It's got a better trigger than my Factory Shadow. 

Smooth as silk!

I don't buy any pistols other than CZ's and this is the only shop I'll use for custom work.  They are off the charts good at what they do.

I dropped off my 75B for a trigger job and new sights. Stuart was awesome to deal with and I felt very confident. They quoted 2 months for the work. No sweat.

If fact Stuart had the work done almost 3 weeks early. Gun was shipped back in the time frame I requested. Gun is perfect. I could not be happier.

Post by: TJDubya on May 30, 2018, 01:02:08 PM
Angus is the man!

I had the pleasure of meeting him at a private CZ exposition in the little nobody town of San Isidro, Texas. This was back before I knew anything about anything. He had a long conversation with me and at the time I never realized the gravity of who I was speaking with. He's an incredibly down to earth guy and looking back I can't believe he took the time to talk to some dumb kid who didn't know an extractor spring from a recoil spring. That day I got to shoot a CZ Bren and Scorpion in select fire, as well as their new (at the time) Dan Wesson line up. Still goes down as one of the coolest days ever.

Thanks, Angus!
