Walt,I would like to know if you have shot the CZ100?If so,will you share your thoughts here.I know you dislike the trigger but other than that,I'm curious.
Does anyone here shoot their CZ100 better than their other CZ's.I would very much like to hear your experiences also.I am really looking forward to getting mine.It will be my carry pistol.I shot my Glock very well and am not that concerned about the trigger.My smith has been working on firearms for over 30yrs.If anything needs fixing or tweaking I feel sure he will be up to the task.

Better? No.  As well as. Yes, it's pretty close.  With all the talk about the CZ 100 trigger, I thought it wouldn't be as accurate as my other CZ's.  But, it is.  Once you "learn" the trigger, it can be mastered.  The CZ 100 "feels" good in my hand: a natural fit.

I shoot mine as well as any pistol or revolver that I own.  I tried the trigger mods listed in here and they help.  Before the mods I was getting 3-4in groups at 25yds and now they are 1-2.  The pistol is really capable of great accuracy.  It takes practice.  The 100 is my carry pistol and I carry it with confidence that it will perform when and if needed.

  My 100 is accurate, the misses are my fault due to operator error - the trigger pull is sooo long that many times I still flinch and push the barrel down with firing.  If I go to the range with just the 100 it is better but if I take several guns and switch from my PCR, BHP, my Kahrs (or even my revolvers) there are several low shots.

  I love the PCR, I tolerate the 100.

  If the 100 is to be your carry gun - I suggest you commit to it and get that trigger pull down.  Good luck.

The "trigger fix" thread went on forever...almost...but I found the combination that makes the 100's pull as easy, smooth and non-breaking as a Kahr.

My daughter has younger eyes than Dad and she can keep 'em in the black out to 75'.  I struggle with no-line bifocal lenses and I can still keep up with her out to about 50'.

I've only shot one once, and that's no indication of anything, as I invariably shoot a gun horribly the first time I try it.

The trigger didn't help, though.

As I've said, however, I'll probably get one, one of these days, as I don't doubt the gun's potential.  Several folks have come up with enough modifications to improve the trigger, that it now seems a worthwhile effort for somebody not afraid to tinker with the gun.

But there's not way I'd get one BEFORE I got a CZ-97B or CZ-75B (or, if concealed carry is your interest, a P-01 or 75 Compact.)

If fits me better than a Glock, and I've still got a hankering for a Glock 34...

I know this is an OLD POST, and it was apparently started after I left the CZ Forum for a while, but ...

I eventually got a CZ-100 in 9mm and later in .40, and really never got comfortable with either one.  They were, by far, my least-loved CZs.

Don't remember what I did, but had I kept them, they would have become boat anchors.  A different trigger system would have made them tolerable, as the ergonomics (except for the trigger) were quite good.

I much prefer the striker-fired P10c, but even after installing the HBI trigger system, I'm still getting a little trigger bite.  Go figure.

I came to this sub-board researching CZ 110's as I have been looking to add  one to my collection.

Responding to your query...

I have a CZ 100, but it is not my least favorite CZ...that would be the Vzor 50 & Vzor 70.  These copied the Walther "grip bite" due to the wedge on the grip that fits into the web of your hand.  After a dozen rounds you can barely hold the gun.

The Vzor 70's DA pull is supposed to be 23 lb (per literature), but as one reviewer put it "...it is closer to 100 lbs than to 23 lb".
CZ24,27,38,40P,45,52,Vzor 50,70,75BΩ,75D PCR,P01,P07, Phantom,SP01 Tactical,Shadow 2 (Blue,Urban Gray),P09, P10S,P10C,P10F,82,83,85 PreB,97BE,97BD,100,1911A1, 2075BD RAMI,452 American,550 Urban Counter Sniper,805 Bren S1,Drake G2,Duo,Z,vz24 8mm Mauser,FK 7.5 BRNO Field Pistol & PSD

My experience with the cz100 was that it would hit most anything I pointed it at. 

I did pick up a cz75 once at a LGS and it felt just too large in my hand by comparison.  The cz 100 has just always been a great fit for me.

If it fits your hand and you take your time working in the trigger group, the pistol is very nice.

Sorry for the delayed response, but I absolutely love my CZ 100. So much in fact, that I sent it off to CZ Custom so that they could mill the front of the slide and install Trijicon night sights on it for me. Now if I could just get a rail adapter for my WML and, a proper IWB Kydex holster and I would be 100% set.
