CGW race hammer.  CGW adjustable sear.  Some polishing of the trigger bar. 

The above can make a big difference.
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.

Picked this nice '01 made 75 SA a few weeks ago for a great price.  I bought a Sig 226 Legion SAO earlier this year, been liking it a lot so when I saw this 75 SA for a great price, and four mags I jumped on it. 
Congrats!  I’d love to get one made that early!  My ‘04 cz is my nicest by far.


I would like to know why many people think they have to immediately ship the CZ-75B SA off to CGW for a trigger job. Is the stock trigger that bad?

Thanks. :)
The 75B SA trigger can (emphasis on can) have the same feel as the the sa trigger on the standard models.  While the trigger is adjustable for travel, in my experience, the reset and hammer camming are the same as any other 75B series.

There are folks running CZ’s with CGW heartbeats with less than 3# sa trigger and super short resets (if they take the fpb out).  The SA is a great platform for that kind of a build.

Be interesting to see how it compares to the Sig.  The Sig I sent in to the Custom Shop for some work came back with the shortest reset of any of my non-1911’s and a crisp 3# trigger. :D

My standard 75B SA has a 4lb 8oz trigger.
The problem (for me) is the slight creep & hammer camming to the rear just before sear release.
I will eventually need to do something about this as I really like the pistol.


"Hammer camming"? I don't like the sound of that. I gather that it is the norm on CZ-75s. How about the other models?

Its a feature found only in the California approved models....

Kinda kidding, but the competition based models (Shadows, etc) feature different hammers/sears that don’t cam in SA.  Fortunately we have CZC and CGW. :D

Boo, that is some excellent information, as someone who works on my own personal toys. I would rather learn this concept before an accident rather than after. Definitely something to think about.

This one has a nice crisp trigger, I don't feel like modifying it at all.
