P-07 Urban Grey SR and P-01 Omega Urban Grey SR
« on: January 08, 2019, 01:20:44 AM »
I already have a P-07 Urban Grey SR but was thinking that a P-01 Urban Grey Omega SR might be nice to have....just itching to buy another gun to suppress.  I like the compact guns but do have a Beretta M9A3 so that fulfills my large frame needs.

Does anyone have both the P-07 Urban Grey and the P-01 Urban Grey Omega SR?  If so, when shooting suppressed, how do they differ as far as feel, shooting, etc and which do you like best and why?

I really love the P-07 models but was just wondering about the P-01 Omega SR guns.   Probably sort of a redundant purchase have both the P07 UG and the P01 Omega SR.

I don't have both, not in the Urban Gray models. 

I have a P07 in .40 S&W I've carried (every day/concealed carry) for about 6 or 7 years now.  One of the old DUTY models.  It was worth (the way it shoots, the way it feels in my hand and it's reliability) to spend more than it cost originally to buy an DI RMR, have the slide milled for the RMR and a back up rear sight, get the back up sights and the RMR installed and the slide cerakoted.  I've got almost as much in that "unit" as three P07's would cost me.  It's worth it.

I do have an Urban Gray P01.  I really like the way the P01 feels in my hand.  I like the way the P01 feels/fits better than the P07.  However, the P07 is more accurate than the P01.  You can put an RMR on a P01 but it looks really awkward vs. the P07 due to the narrow slide on the P01 (any of the standard frame CZ75 variants, really.)  The Urban Gray P01, due to the night sights and the light I have on it is my recliner chair hide out pistol.  It's the one I reach for and grab anytime someone knocks on the door or I hear a "bump in the night" while we're up watching TV or reading.  I liked it well enough I bought a second on, the black P01 Omega, as a 9MM carry pistol for road trips.  I was carrying it around the property, too, but got concerned about how much dirt, crud, sweat I got on it during the summer months.  Even the magazine in the pistol can be wet some times.  Takes a lot of maintenance to insure it doesn't rust/corrode on me.

I'd sure hate to see it rusty so I may save it for my road trip pistol and carry something less likely to rust/corrode from sweat, rain, high pressure water wash splashing, dog slobbers, etc. when it warms up (XD .45 acp with the stainless slide and stainless magazine and plastic frame).
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
