CZ Polymer Pistols, the new wave / Re: New CZ P-07 User with question

I like the extended firing pin.  It comes with a reduced power hammer spring which helps lighten trigger pull and makes dry firing no issue. 

While you have it apart, polish the sides of the firing pin block plunger.  I will make the take up a little smoother.  The take up is when the firing pin plunger is being depressed.

P10 is least cz like, so if your taste runs to da/sa hammer guns then your analysis makes sense. However, coming from a guy who has also run a ton o glocks,you need to acknowledge that p10 is aimed at glock, not at fitting a family resemblance with cz. In that light, I think p10 is an excellent competitor to g19. Trigger is far better than on the p19. I like my p10c and have used it to stomp glock shooters at the range. Wouldn't want to face myself carrying the p10c against  my spo1 but I'd feel as confident  with p10 as with a glock.

CZ Scorpion EVO / Re: New to the scorpion carbine

I like the full size ak style right side selector.

When I first got it, I didn't think I was going to like it at all.

But after the first trip, it was really intuitive and quick.  I don't even use my thumb on the left side to manipulate the selector anymore.  I could do a selector delete on it at this point  ;D

I’m currently going the other direction, weeding out anything not CZ in my collection. Just sold an FN 5-7 this week that I’ve had since 2004 or so (for more than I originally paid for it no less). Just never shot it, neat enough gun and platform.

Now, the question becomes what do I replace it with?

The utilitarian in me wants a second P01, one in a finish I wouldn’t mind shoving in and out of a holster (not going to happen with my High Polish)
The collector in me wants to grab a P10F when my LGS get his first shipment in of them this Thursday, or to scoop up a P10c that he has on fire sale. Or both.
The purist in me wants to wait and grab a TSO in 9mm to go with my TSO in 40 (it’s that good)
The tinkerer in me wants to order a slew of parts for several of my existing CZ’s and get to work with doing some upgrades.

One thing is for sure, none of my CZ’s, and especially none of my steel framed CZ’s are, or ever will be for sale.

CZ or F it.

go for a matched pair and get a 9mm TSO
CZ SP-01 and variants / Shadow 2, got mine!

Picked up a Black/Blue today from my FFL.  Gave it a quick clean then went to the range.  Looking forward to shooting it a lot more. 

I used to shoot USPSA Production division with a pair of Shadows, a SP-01 Shadow and a short dust cover 75 Shadow.  Both came from CZ Custom and were sprinkled with their magic fairy dust.  Great guns, but to be honest they never really fit my hand very well and I would get hot spots from the beavertail after extended firing/dry fire sessions.  I sold my SP-01 Shadow, but kept the 75 Shadow. 

For the last 6 months I’ve been shooting Carry Optics with a RMR’d P10C (it’s actually my carry gun), and I was thinking that a Shadow 2 would make a fine host for a new Carry Optics gun.  But for the next few months I’ll probably stick with iron sights and shoot it in Prod while the gun and I get acquainted. 

My quick New-To-Me range session was basically to check the sights and run some drills.  I started out running the gun all stock, but midway thru swapped out the stock recoil spring for an 11 lb spring since I’m shooting 130 PF minor ammo.  Initial impressions were: holy moly, this gun shoots flat, A-zone hits shooting pairs was effortless at 10 yds, front sight very easy to track during Bill Drills at 7 yds, and accuracy was minute of plate rack at 18 yds.  The S2’s frame fits my hand better, and I love the front/back strap checking. 

Back at home I changed out the stock hammer spring for a 11.5 lb spring, replaced the stock FP and FP spring for the CGW extended pin and reduced power spring, and also exchanged the stock trigger pin and TRS for the CGW floating pin and reduced TRS.  Post spring-swap the trigger pulls were 7.5 lbs DA and 2.75 lbs SA (compared to 8+ lbs DA and 3.5 lbs SA).  I didn’t do any polishing, just swapped springs.

Jury is out if I want the competition hammer and sear, for now I plan to leave it stock and just shoot it a bunch.  Holster is a Bladetech with BOSS hanger and using Ghost mag pouches.

Sometimes getting a good grip on my Glock take down tabs can be challenging , have not field stripped a p-10 so not sure if they are easier or about the same . The tabs are blade like so both sides must be pulled down otherwise no go .

both the pre-release model I had for a couple of months to demo and the early 2017 P-10c I own are considerably easier to disassemble than the G41 I used to own.
Compact CZ 75s / Re: P01 with a PCR sight cut?
« Last post by eastman on January 16, 2019, 09:21:25 PM »
isn't that the rail cut for the detachable bayonet?

General Firearms Discussion / Re: I've decided I must get one of these
« Last post by CzechnoWizard on January 16, 2019, 09:20:31 PM »
Yes, though without the rail. I have the actual guide gun model.

.45-70 is a very versatile round and I enjoy both cowboy level loads of trail boss and the shock inducing sledge hammers sold by hornady.  A few observations:

These are not all that smooth to cycle and homebrew polishing does not help much.

The trigger flops around a bit when cycling  the action.

The side gate is kind of crude and will scrape up ammo or bite your fingers if allowed. 

The standard rectangular lever looks nice but functionally it's a knuckle buster. I'd look for the larger loop and wrap it I  paracord.

Factory sights are basic at best. Skinner or xs express are almost a mandatory upgrade unless you plan to mount an optic.

The 16" barrel makes a dang handy package.

405 grain loads are tough to regulate sights for. I'm fairly recoil numb but I have problems with my 405 grain loads hitting about 6" high at 50 yds if my sights are zeroed for a lighter, faster load. That makes no ballistic sense unless you conclude that the stout recoil of the 405 grainers,even loaded light, is severe enough to raise the muzzle before the bullet exits.

As with most any non-takedown lever action, cleaning is tough due to inability to access the breach

If buying used or even nos, study up on the collector interest that drives prices for pre-remington produced Marlins. You can end up paying too much for a shooter or you can take home a queen too valuable to shoot.

Beware that buying an 1895 will likely make you want an 1894 to go along with it.

CZ Scorpion EVO / Re: Magpul Parts Released for Scorpion
« Last post by John A. on January 16, 2019, 09:19:25 PM »
I don't know.  It took them a pretty long time to release the Zhukov AK stocks after shot show was over.

Still, glad to see more scorpion aftermarket stuff.
