You’ve had a firearm hobby prior to Formally meeting a CZ. Then it turns into a habit. I at one point owned 13 9mm pistols trying to find the best one for me. Once my brother turned me on to my first CZ the P01. I started selling off anything that wasn’t a CZ to have more money for other CZ models. I have both a P01 and a PCR I use my P01 with a light attached for my nightstand pistol and my PCR is my range princess. I conceal carry my P10S, I have yet to try and carry the P01 or the PCR, but if your carrying AIWB and your skinny like I am I will say a compact with a light is rather uncomfortable and bulky to conceal carry. I know there are some really nice AIWB holsters out there for both the PCR and the P-01. I just recently had a company called tactical measure make me a AIWB holster for my P01 with a Inforce APLC Glock light and when I put it on I look like I have a major bulge in the Belt buckle area, now that could be the rubber wedge on the back pushing out like that but I have yet to try another company to make a custom one. I’ll leave the link to the outfit that made my holster.

I also went with the P-01. Liked having the rail.

Use it for the Mantis X training system.

I bought my P-01 Convertible specifically for the omega trigger.  The pic rail was a bonus for me because I now carry my P-01 with a weapon light on it.  This is the way I'm starting to carry all my ccw's, as I've found an awesome holster maker (PJ Holsters) that makes great light bearing IWB kydex holsters.

But it might depend on whether you want to have the traditional trigger or the omega.  The P-01 is the only 75 compact you can get with the omega, so that might make your decision for you.  I personally like having a rail, then I have the option to light up or not.



Yeah, my favorite color is orange.  :D

I'm looking for a concealed carry CZ.  What makes the PCR your favorite?

In my case my first choice for a carry pistol is one without a rail if there's an option for that.  The front end of the PCR is quite a bit narrower than the P-01.  I notice that width when holstered and find the PCR a bit more comfortable.  Not that I'd give up a P-01 if someone gave one to me.  ;)

The first CZ I shot was a P-06 rental, I shot it rather well for being my first CZ experience. I own a 75 Compact and a Shadow TAC II, both have a safety. Recently I got it in my head I want to buy a decocker and I want to be able to carry it. I went back and forth between the PCR and the P-01. I really liked the beaver tail on the P-01 and the balance when loaded with a full magazine. I did not like the loaded chamber indicator on the PCR. I could not find any instance of someone removing it and making a blank to fill it in. I found one post from long ago where someone had the LCI come loose.

To me that's just another unnecessary point of failure. I was thinking about buying an SDP but then came across a used Protek II at a decent price. So now I own a P-01.

I had multiple P-01s and PCRs in the past (including the all steel 99041 and the omega grey with the threaded barrel) but sold them all and was just looking for the standard P-01 Omega (found one yesterday in a trade for a gen4 G19).  Since I do not carry the CZ, I can’t comment on the holstering/reholstering characteristic between the rail/non-rail version. However, If you can only have one, I highly recommend the standard Omega P-01 since it will allow you the option of safety/decocker with/without light/laser.

I went through the same struggle, back and forth...P-01 or PCR???    I finally decided on the PCR because I don’t intend to mount a light.  Super happy with my choice.  The PCR has been just as good as advertised!  Ergonomic, accurate, not too small, and the muzzle flip/recoil is very controllable.  On its way to becoming my favorite pistol!

I now have 600 rounds through my new PCR and it has run flawlessly.  Zero malfunctions using Speer 124gr. Lawman FMJ, 147gr Winchester Ranger SXT and 147gr Federal HST.  My new LOK Full Checkered grips help me get an solid grip.  The muzzle flip is very controllable and the sight returns right back to POA.  The grip is super ergonomic.  Everyone who holds it says the same thing, that’s it’s the best feeling pistol they’ve ever handled.  I’ve quickly become a huge fan.
