The P 10 that does not officially exist yet
« on: August 01, 2021, 01:44:50 AM »
Hello folks,

For the last several weeks I have been enjoying a P-10F in .45 ACP, which does not exist officially yet. CZ has not announced it and nobody dared to make a video for it.

What I can say that is has the best trigger in the P-10 series I have tried.
For me, the 10C was not the miracle it was supposed to be, the 10F in 9mm was definitely an improvement, and the 10F in .45 ACP is unquestionably the best.
The pull and the break are very clean, and lighter than expected. The reset is very crisp, and pleasant.
I did not have the problem of the pull getting caught in the trigger safety blade I had in the P-10C.

The pistol comes with three backstraps, with the small one installed.
Even the smallest has a little hump and I would have preferred it without it, but it is Ok as it is.

The pistol feels very solid and pleasantly heavy in the hand. This depends on the hand and the shooter's habits, but I feel it sitting very confident in my hand.
The frame, even if bigger to accommodate the longer and wider cartridge, is still quite light.
For the same reason, the slide is solid and beefy, and as it is made out of steel, it is heavy.
The combination of the above and the cartridge leads to a bit more recoil, but nothing excessive.

The recoil system is a bit more complex than usual, and it reminds me of the DPM recoil reduction systems, but lacking the third spring.
I believe that going to that more sophisticated assembly helps reduce the perceived recoil, but I do not have a compatible simpler one to compare.

The insides seem to be the same as the 9mm P-10 series, except for few things that have to be elongated to accommodate the longer cartridge.

The striker spring is longer than the 9mm P-10F, which in turn seems to be longer than the P-10C.
Installing the heavier reduced striker spring from the HBI kit worked well, but I am thinking to go the stock P-10C spring, which gives above the same results.

The trigger seems to be exactly the same as the others, and I successfully swapped it with a Suarez trigger I had unused.
I have no idea whether any other aftermarket triggers would work, I could not try them.

Installing the Cajun reset spring did not work - it is too long and strong, the slide cannot go all the way back with it.

If there is any interest I can post pictures of my groups at around 13 yards and the pistol itself with the Suarez trigger.
There is only a camel spit at the bottom of the bidet.

CZ has released a video about the 45 several months ago.
Am guessing you don't see much about it is due to fact that guns in general are hard to get specially new ones.  Plus all the cool kids are shooting 9mm
