have to bounce it through another state to get it here then do the SSE, but when you want something you do what you gotta do.

It's not bragging... It's sharing a joyous moment with like minded individuals.

I always feel like people think I'm bragging too, but really I am just so excited about something I have to share my excitement.

Congrats OP. you will love your CZ I'm sure.

It was a toss up between the 9 or 40, but with the majority of my pistols being 40 it was the logical choice. Every single review or person I talked to that has shot one had nothing to say other than that it's an amazing gun. Only took a month to track one down and then get the shop to finally agree to let it come to CA.

I'm personally a bigger fan of the decocker. But I agree, the appeal of the SP-01 non tac in 40 would be pretty BA

Me too. Right now I'm thinking I'll wait for the P09 in .40. Of course, I'm planning on starting up with official USPSA sooner than that gun will be available, and I have to figure out what makes the most sense to shoot. My SP-01 is way beyond being able to shoot in Production and it's really the only gun I have for this sort of purpose right now.

Are you planning to shoot .40 in production?

You can always shoot your SP01 SA in limited (minor). I've only shot one USPSA so far but I shot my shadow SA in limited (minor) instead of just shooting my 75 shadow (production legal). I'm kind of embarrassed to admit I shot my production div 75 Shadow for the first time last week, despite having it since August. Kept debating whether to sell it and stay in Limited minor.

Also your SP01 is great for steel challenge or steel only matches. I shot a steel action match with mine and it performed great. Was a great choice for that match.

I don't shoot any sort of competition. But that is all stuff that I will keep in mind if I ever do.

I haven't really put a lot of thought into it honestly, and it's not like I'm really going to be competitive or able to attend every shoot even if I [by some miracle] had the skills to rank highly anyway. But... there's a points advantage to shooting in Major so I figured I should shoot in Major. Maybe the correct answer is just to come to grips with the fact that it probably won't actually affect my ranking (and come to terms with the fact that I'm just doing it for fun and my ranking doesn't matter one bit anyway ) whether I'm shooting Minor or Major and just stick with the gun I already have a love, and which shoots the more affordable 9mm ammo that I have piles and piles of already . I've been shooting the SP-01 in Limited Minor since moving up to WA but I've just been doing club-level fun shoots. They're scored exactly the same way as USPSA but they aren't officially official. Actual USPSA-affiliated matches start up pretty soon and I'll be joining in for this next year.


Anyway sorry OP!!! Totally derailed the thread here! An SP-01 in .40 would have been high on my list except I want the safety, not the decocker and they don't make it. If CZ-USA would import and sell just slide assemblies, I'd be all over it and would just get a .40 S&W slide to use on my existing SP-01 frame. That would be freakin' sweet (they could take a hint from EAA). A Tactical Sports seems a bit excessive and I don't want to spend that sort of $$$... even if I wanted to part with $1,100, I'm not sure I would like the larger grip frame.

.
You probably know this already, but production division in uspsa and ipsc are both scored in minor only, no matter what caliber/power factor you shoot. So you can shoot .40 cal in production but it will be scored as minor.

I'm shooting limited minor as well, and you never know, you could be competitive. My first USPSA I placed 3rd in limited despite shooting minor


sorry for sidetracking, OP.

Actually, no, I didn't realize. I haven't looked at the rules for years. There is no "production" at the club-level fun stuff I've been doing. Just Minor/Major and Limited/Open (and a carbine class). Maybe I should shoot Production then and get a Shadow that I leave unmodified within the rules of Production... I see there's a handful of Shadows on the USPSA production guns approved list so maybe I'll have to choose one here eventually. But there goes my excuse for buying a P09


Edit: I didn't feel very good at all about my performance, but the results just got posted and apparently I shot pretty decently this week. Came in 2nd out of 9 people who shoot Limited Minor and 13th out of 54 total shooters (and 3 of the shooters who scored better were Carbine class and two were Open). Last week I was too accurate but not fast enough, and this week I was too fast and not as accurate as I can be. Of course, all 9 targets were at 25 yards and there were lots of no-shoots surrounding small hit zones, so it was a tough course!

That's what I did! One shadow SA for steel matches and anything I don't have to shoot major or DA/SA, and a production legal one. (Except I love shooting the SA one so much I haven't gotten around to shooting the other yet lol)

Looks like you HAVE to buy both a p09 and a shadow now.

Congrats op I know how you feel. I'm picking up my SP-01 Monday and already ordered the cgw straight SAO conversion trigger. I also like a decocker for a hd gun so I found a SP-01 Tactical in 9mm and placed a deposit, now I'll have a SAO with safety and a decocker version including a Shadow Target and a P-06 coming my way.

Btw I just installed the cgn Ultra-Lite/SD kit and used the HS-1200 hammer spring, extended firing pin, and lightened fpb spring on my P-01 and lightened up that DA pull very nicely. The kit also came with the HS-13 hammer spring I'll put in the converted to SAO SP-01.

CAGLS,

i had the cgw sao trigger on my sp01, but i recently switched it out for the czcustom flat trigger which has much more adjustability for even less pretravel. it's considerably less.

This is the one I ordered from cgw. It also has the adjustment for pretravel and overtravel.

CAGLS,

That is the one I had, installed by David himself, with the adjustable pre and post travel. It is my experience that the geometry is a little different than the CZCustom flat trigger, or the CZCustom flat trigger has a longer pre travel screw allowing for more adjustment (and less pre travel).

With the CGW trigger, I had a considerable more amount of pretravel.

Then I could ask David if in fact the geometry is different or if he has a longer screw, if not cancel the order and get the cz custom's version.

So it's the straight triggers that bother you (i.e. 'look so goofy')?

Yeap, they feel odd to me also though. Just a preference deal is all.

I agree, it looks a little weird. Never tried it msyelf, though.

What about the SAO trigger? I kinda like it...it's a compromise.

I like that it looks different, not the standard curved or 1911 skeletonized triggers. I wonder how it will feel functionally in slow or rapid fire. I always thought they were thin in width.

I liked mine before it went boom. Stock trigger on the SAO isn't half bad, but once you shoot a tuned gun you will never go back.

Maybe if it could be tuned so it was perfectly vertical when the hammer is cocked it would look better (BUT IT CAN'T, because it would hit the trigger guard). But even if it could, I still wouldn't like it as much as the straight one.



^^^ it's just wrong. Get it vertical!


ahhhhh... so much nicer

I don't think David stocks the flat trigger like the one seen in my pics. At least he hasn't the whole time I've lived in west monroe (the town he lives in). Maybe he has in the past but I don't think he does anymore. Last time I checked was a month ago.

Correct me if I'm wrong please.....there aren't any flat trigger swaps for the tactical/decocker model are there?

You could....but no reason to. They are Sao. There is quite a bit more involved in the decocker guns and modifying them.

When he did some work on my gun about a month or so ago, he said he normally stocks them but was out at the moment. So... I ordered mine from CZ Custom and had it shipped directly to CGW. I would have used the one I already had, but I ruined it ...the aluminum is a whole lot softer than the steel roll pin and, yeah, when installing the old roll pin I gouged the hole in the trigger and it wasn't worth trying to salvage. For some reason, though, the new one was too wide to fit in my SP-01's frame (I think I got a TS one? But it was the same one I got last time? Anyway maybe CZ Custom messed up and made it too wide accidently, assuming they machine them). David milled the sides down so it would fit in the frame and that's why mine has shiny silver sides now




^^^ still not sure if I'm going to "fix" that by blacking out the sides somehow. I think I'll probably just leave it though. Don't really care either way, and it's kinda cool. It's not as obvious in real life as in the photos where it really reflects the light/flash.

It would be sort of weird to have a single action gun without a safety. You could drop the hammer, obviously, but then you'd have to manually cock it before it would fire. You couldn't leave it cocked, because there's no safety. I guess if you only used it at the range it wouldn't matter, but it's sort of an awkward scenario.

I don't want to switch it to SA. Just a big fan of flat triggers.
