Stage 1 testing CZ P-07 Duty

On my way out the door this morning, I grabbed the freshly repaired P-07 Duty, just in case I could run to the range at lunch. I was in a hurry, and grabbed nothing but the gun and spare mag.

I was able to run to the local indoor range for 20 minutes. Bought 100 rounds of S&B 9mm, borrowed eyes and ears at the range and started loading mags.

This is the last time it will be clean for a while.

I went to work on double taps, working on form and trigger reset. As before, this gun is very accurate, but really needs a sight upgrade. Think that's on my Christmas list for this year.

No jams, no malfunctions. One instance of the slide slamming forward as a fresh mag was inserted, and one time of the slide not locking back- but my offhand thumb might have interfered with the lockback.

Empty brass. A MUCH better way to enjoy lunch.

The testing continues. I will not carry this again until I get at least 400 trouble free rounds through it. I do believe that this
gun is worth the work. 16 rounds of hyper accurate 9mm carried C&L in a package roughly the same size as a Glock 19, yet handles better than a Glock to me. Not that I dislike Glocks, but I like this gun better- and it's controls match the 1911 and CZ-75 which is where all my training lies.


  1. May the feed-ramp gods smile on you.

  2. I'm at around a thousand round through my P07, and I'm not going to clean it until I shoot another 1000 rounds or it burps. So far, it's run MUCH better than my pre-B CZ75.

    And yes, the sights on it could be better, and that's why I picked up a set of MePros for it that'll go on this month.

  3. Kevin, This gun has potential, I just have the bad luck gene that means I get the ones that have teething issues.

    So far, my CZ-75B has only jammed once in the many thousands of rounds I have fired, and that was on the crappy Federal EFMJ ammo that I don't think they even make anymore.
