    Got a new CZ P-01 today ...

    ... from Academy Sports in Little Rock. Its a 9mm compact, with an allloy frame, hammer forged barrel and two 14 round magazines.

    The recoil spring is flat wound, which is a little different than my CZ 75B.

    The decocker is better designed than the one on my Bersa Thunder 380. It pivots clockwise from the 3:00 position, and is a controlled decock. The Bersa is a counter-clockwise decock from the 9 o'clock position, with a more sudden release. The CZ can be easily decocked while holding the gun in a two-handed grip. The Bersa is far less user firendly in this regard, requiring a determined effort to decock from a two handed grip.

    The P-01's grips are made out of a rubberlike material, which provides a more slip resistant surface than the 75B. The baseplate on the magazines are rubber as well.

    The trigger is a bit on the gritty side, which I've come to expect from CZ. I'll have to decide whether I want to have the trigger stoned, or whether I just want to let time and a few thousand rounds smooth it out.

    Overall, the ergonomics are way better than my CZ 75B. While the 75B is a quality pistol in every sense of the word, the P-01 is simply better. Its no surprise that the P-01 received a NATO serial number.

    I can't wait to get this one out to the range.

    Bud - they're like crack cocaine. Once you start shooting one, you get hooked. I've got a CZ 75B that will never get sold or traded.

    P-01 trigger should smooth out. I'm not a fan of the decocker guns but know they have a place.

    CZ rifles are equally as impressive.

    Nice pickup GaryARK;

    I've been using a CZ PCR for the last few weeks. Damned things are ultra reliable and natural pointers. I've used decocker guns like my Sig 226's and 228 over the years on duty. I haven't had a decocker firearm since 99-2000 but the DA/SA trigger with decocker is still very familiar and I like them if thats the platform the gun comes in, no problems here using them.

    Congrats.
