Finally picked my baby up last nite. Had a chance to strip her down this afternoon for a proper cleaning.

All I can say is DAMN. This gun is Filthy!!!
Looks like CZ dumped it in a bucket of oil.

Had to take off the rubber grips too. Looked like a layer off lard underneath it.

Gonna hit Angeles this Sunday for a 200rd break in session. I'll try to post results.

Range Pics from Angeles today. 7 YD line. First several mags, my shots were all over the place. After 40-50 rds, I got use to the trigger. Trigger has ALOT of travel and Creep. Definitely gonna do a trigger job sometime next year.
Shot a total of 200rd of WWB.

They all come like that, great choice. Gun dont need a break in, you just need to familiarize yourself with it. Enjoy.

Wipe that bad boy down and head to the range. Very accurate handgun with little recoil.

Clean it and go shooting:-)

The CZ triggers are so-so brand new. The gritty feeling will go away but the creepy feel won't. Get a trigger job either from CZ-Custom (http://czcustom.com/sanditriggerworksada.aspx) shop or a local gunsmith that knows CZ's and can work the stock parts. This will be the BEST thing ever for the gun. You can also change the 20lb mainspring for a 15lb and that will make the heavy trigger more pleasant. If you shoot mostly 115 grain fmj practice ammo try a 14lb recoil spring instead of the stock 20lb which works better for +p ammo.

These are just my experiences, YMMV!

Enjoy the gun...its my favorite in my collection!

Dumb question. This is actually my first firearm I own that actually has Night Sights on it.

Is it safe (for my Night Sights) to spray down my gun with Brake Kleen, Gun Scrubber, Solvent, CLP or any other cleaner?

The tritium is encased in glass vials so they won't be affected by cleaning chemicals.

Shooting 500 rounds will do the "trigger job" as well... Cost wise, they're about the same.

Well, no. Shooting it will smooth the grittiness due to the metal parts rubbing together and smoothing out but a trigger job gives the gun a crisp break and will shorten the reset. The difference is amazing. I have purchased 3 CZ's in the last 3 years and none were awesome until having a trigger job.

I have a Beretta 92fs that is almost 20 years old and has over 30,000 rounds. 2 years ago I had a trigger job done and it made a huge difference in how the pistol handles.

A trigger job involves making mechanical changes to the angle of the hammer/sear interface that will never occur by simply shooting a gun.

My trigger doesnt feel gritty, but there is some creep.
Who did your Trigger job and how much did it cost? Do U know of a good CZ smith here in the LA basin?

btw, can anyone recommend a good Holster for my gun.
I've been looking at the Fobus line. There are 4 models that is suppose to fit. But comments from other forums claim "minor fitting" is required to make the SP-01 fit.
I'm looking for a "drop fit".

This is what I had done at CZ Custom Shop (http://czcustom.com/sanditriggerworksada.aspx). They installed the competition hammer and did a trigger job, it cost $160 + shipping. I also had fiber optic front and competition rear sites installed on my 75B. There is a guy in Santa Clarita who works on CZ's: http://www.danielsgunsmithing.com/. Not all gunsmith's will touch CZ pistols because they are a bit more complex than 1911's or Berettas.

"Not for sale to CA on Supplied Guns"

Hmm, guess their policy changed recently? This trigger job looks tempting, only $160. Something I would consider in the near future.

No need to spray it down. Just spray on a small amount of solvent or oil and wipe it down with a rag. (I use Rem Oil).

I always try to keep oil (or solvent mixed with oil, or grime) away from night sights. Any residue may result in dimming.

To remove oil from the rubber grips, remove them and pack them in cornmeal (folded in newspaper or wax paper) and let them sit over night. Repeat if necessary with fresh cornmeal.

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas! ;)

It just means you cannot buy the gun from them with the mods, you have to buy it, fill out the paperwork and then send it to them for the mods. Otherwise the handgun would be different than the gun tested by the drop test.

The CZ-75 sp-01 is an epic gun! I love mine, only have 750 rounds through it but the trigger is really good and it is one accurate gun. In the future I pan on sending it to Angus for a trigger job.

Welcome to the CZ club. Just keep in mind that CZ owners tend to be mature than a particular (nameless) other brand. We know our guns are good, no need to defend them to death. Enjoy the SP-01! Great choice!:D

Actually this is my 3rd CZ. First 2 I sold off years ago (big mistake)

1st CZ was a 75 (pre B model). Damn thing shot 10 inches low @ 7yds.
Other shooters had the same results. Sold it to a friend, he had Novak sites installed now it shoots POA/POI.

2nd was a 75B / 40cal. polyermer coated.
the rear serrations weren't cut deep like the SP-01 or Pre B model.
And i got oily hands / fingers. I had the hardest time racking this particular gun.
Sold it and got me a Norinco 1911.

I stayed away from CZ all these years mainly becuz i thought they all had that "Flat" serrated cut. Wasnt until recently when I was in the market for a 9mm did i actually start considering CZ again. $200 cheaper i could've gotten a glock, xd, mp, sr9 etc. but CZ was always my favorite (2nd to a 1911)

might get a P-01 next Xmas:-)

I have this one in black and it was the only thing I could find that fit my 1911 with light/laser combo installed. Once you adjust everything (and there are a ton of adjustments), it is a nice rig for such a cheap price. I usually use a Blackhawk Serpa, but I needed something for night matches that worked with a light and was lucky enough to land this one for $20 at a gun show. Turns out it was a much better value than I imagined.
