P.S.  I think this set-up may also work for the Compacts: CZ-75 P-01 and PCR if the rear dovetail is the same??
I think it could be a nice compact red dot for a carry gun.

I have a P-01 and I'll check it out.

Vinny ... did you check out the P-01?  I have interest in this ...

And thanks!

As stated above the dot enhances your ability to be target focused vs. sight focused.  After shooting CO in USPSA last year I found the brain-training made it much easier to be target focused with my iron sight pistols this year

I've been training my shooting to be two eyes open, and point-shoot with the same goal in mind, with a laser syrt at home. I'm looking forward to trying a red dot on one of mine too.

I've been on vacation so haven't measured yet, but if the rear dovetail is same on full size 75's and compacts, it should work just fine. I believe the top of slide shape is identical.

Can anyone answer if compact 75's like P-01 and full size 75's use the same rear dovetail??

I have a second upper in 9mm for my Pre B that is just at my gunsmith to have a Docter sight inastalled without milling the slide.

He constructed and built mounting plate for the CZ Shadow 2 on a customer order and adapted that for my Pre B.
He has two versions of it. One with adjustable rear sights and one just the mounting plate.

As soon as I have pics, I will post them here.....;-)

Had some questions from Members trying to find this post.
Original Post on December 24th went MIA.
I think CZ Forum may have had an issue on that date; so I'm bringing BTT.
Thanks,  Vinny

Good information ... thanks.  Do you know if this set-up would work on a Kadet .22 conversion slide?

The Leupold CZ 75 mount fits the CZ 75 full and compact slide profile and rear dovetail, but I just don't have a Kadet slide to compare.

Hopefully, someone with Kadet knowledge will chime in.

Vinny, thank you for this excellent information.

I'm thinking about putting a JPoint red dot sight on my SP-01.

I see that Jpoint offers this RDS in 4 MOA, 8 MOA and a circle dot with 65 MOA with a 1 MOA dot in the center of the circle.

I was wondering if you or any of the forum members has experience with the JPoint circle dot sight on a handgun. Seems like it would be quick to pick up the dot, could be used for quick target acquisition in a home defense situation and the 1 MOA dot might be useful for target shooting at the range. The 65 MOA circle of dots would cover just over 8" at 12.5 yards. It would be interesting to see how accurate one could be using the ring to encircle an 8" paper target.

Any comments form those who have used a sight like this on a handgun for range target practice would be appreciated.

Best regards,

Keith

How many rounds do you have through this setup?

Log book = 1,350 so far, usually shooting hotter ammo like Win Nato or Fiocchi through my SP-01. The mount is made by Leupold for the bigger/heavier DPPro, so once the lighter JPoint is locked down with the additional single layer of Gorilla tape between mount and slide; it hasn't budged whatsoever.  The JPoint RDS is made in UK by Shield for JP Enterprises; in fact I understand it's the original Shield mini-red dot.

You can use this set-up with the DPPro if you prefer a larger, more rugged RDS; but you'll need a very tall front sight, like ~.500+ tall and the optional Leupold rear iron if you want BUIS.  IMHO the JPoint gives you a lower and more cost effective set-up. But YMMV

I have a Jpoint "shield" mini sight on my M&P Performance center 9L and it's a great sight, very easy to pick up from a draw.
I just bought this CZ custom shop red dot mount from a forum member
https://czcustom.com/cz-parts-all/red-dot-mounting/multi-sight-base-shado-st-black.html
It won't allow a Co witness, but I've found  that for a competition gun you don't really need to co witness. My M&P is co witnessed but I could remove my iron sights
at this point and I wouldn't miss them at all. I think maybe at first when I was "learning" how to use a Red dot I may have looked for that
front sight (and the front sight on my M&P is tall so very easy to find). this option would've been cheaper (if it will work on a Shadow 2)
so I wish I saw this before I bough the other mount. On a defensive gun I think it's much more important in case the dot dies on you
you still have sights.
make it criminal to own a gun and only criminals will own them

So the Gorilla tape placed UNDER the Leupold mount kit is to fill a gap between mount and slide, providing more surface area contact between slide and mount?  And thus requires the longer screws you obtained at the hardware store?
