    What ScotchWhiskey said. The P-07 & P-09 are damn fine pistols. CZ makes great stuff.

    Yes, my p10f has been pretty good so far. Def impressed with the build quality and how flat it shoots with that amazingly out of box trigger.

    I considered getting one, but basics like a holster and night sights are rare. And replacing springs wouldn’t be as easy since youre forced to rely on the manufacturer. Going original versus clone is a better option with the compact 75. the cost of getting a cajunized original is just as high as getting a swiss made 75 clone.

    I have the P-07 and the P-09 with 5.1"" suppressor barrel. I dry fire with a bit of rubber band tied around the hammer to avoid contacting the firing pin. Dry fire is the way to master the first trigger pull from the decocked double action postion. Subsequent single action is really nice.

    I carry the P-07 appendix and it's a very safe way to due so. The trigger breaks pretty far back but I have gotten used to it.

    I use Knightfall Custom holsters and have a nice AIWB light bearing for the Inforce APLc.

    In my opinion the best DA/SA pistol is either the CZP07 or the HK P30.

    The CZ is closer in size to the G19 and would be my preference.

    I have both the P-07 and P-09. I prefer the P-09 as the shorter grip of the p-07 doesn't work as well for me. Depends on hand size. Cajan does good work.

    Just looked up the price on the Swiss clone! I think I’d just go Cajun p07 for that price. Especially because I just ordered a optics ready shadow 2. I’ll run the p07 with stock trigger for awhile and then go Cajun after I recoup from the S2. I really want an optic of my p10f first too.

    A lot of people rave about them but I’m not a fan. Having to use a certain grain ammo or buying different recoil springs and brass to the face kind of put me off. When I buy a gun I expect it to function 100% right out of the gate. One of the reasons I don’t buy new Kimbers.

    First I’ve heard of p01-09 or any cz for that matter being ammo picky or having to change recoil springs.

    I handload for mine with 122gr thru 147gr; minor to major power factor and it all runs with no spring changes or brass to the face. First I've heard of any of that too.

    Over the years I had two P07s ran 115 and 124 grain various ammo and never had any problems. Perhaps it was a 147gr issue?

    It's because it either didn't happen, or it was one sample.

    I have owned / currently own:
    CZ 75B Satin Nickel
    CZ 75B Stainless Steel
    CZ 75B Single Action Black
    CZ 75B Single Action Hard Chrome
    CZ 85 Combat
    CZ SP01 Shadow Custom Target
    CZ SP01 Tactical (CGW)
    CZ P07
    CZ P09
    CZ P10C

    I have rented / borrowed:
    CZ 75B Black
    CZ 75B Stainless Steel
    CZ 75B Compact
    CZ 85B
    CZ SP01 Tactical
    CZ SP01 Phantom (2)
    CZ PCR
    CZ P01
    CZ P07 UG
    CZ P09 FDE
    CZ 97B

    Now, with all of those CZs fired, I have never had one jam, throw brass to the face, or need a recoil spring change. If it was really a problem, don't you think at least one or two would have done those things?

    My P-07 has been reliable (totally) with everything from Fed Al cased 115gr wimpy loads on up to Underwood +p+ stuff. If it wasn’t the suppressor ready version with the high profile sights and extended magazine I would probably CCW the thing.

    My P-09 does 115, 124, and 147 grain, standard and +p, no issues. Never had any brass to face either.

    Sounds like a sample size of 1 on all the interweb or a fish tale

    I own a VP9 and just bought a CZ P-07 that should be here in the next week. Haven’t had a chance to fire the P-07 yet but have held them and they feel very good in the hand. The reason for me switching is I don’t like the grip as much as I did at first on the VP9. After shooting it a bit I think it is the hump on the back that doesn’t feel right....despite changing up the straps. Plus, I want to have a gun for carry and would prefer a DA/SA over a striker.

    I have read good things about the P-07 which seems to be confirmed in this thread as well. I am planning on polishing and upgrading internals to CGW over time. Good luck on your decision

    I own several CZs too and have carried a P-01 daily for the last two years. Never had ANY issues with any of my CZs running any factory or my hand loads. 100% reliable and extremely accurate, more so than any Glock I’ve owned.

    I’ll take an HK over any other polymer pistol made all week long and twice on Sunday.
