My mother tried out a CZ P01 and asked me about the CZ product. She really liked the feel and fit of the gun, which I told her is very important. I searched the forums and found many positive comments and I have passed on the information. My questions are what are the differences in the P01, SP01 and P06? How are the shooting characteristics compared to a .38 JFrame (her current CC)? Is $600 (northern Nevada) a good price on a new P01?
PS I keep hounding her and my father to join/lurk on this site.

I wish I could answer your questions, but i will at least give you a free bump because I am interested as well.
I am thinking about buying a Rami myself

CZ makes some great guns. I have heard/read so many positive comments that it may be next on my list for purchase.
CZ P-01 is a 9mm. P-06 is .40 caliber.
The design, including ergonomics and the metallurgy is new, not just a remake of the CZ 75.
In my opinion, a great gun. Worth the cost. $600 sounds a little high in FL, but I can't speak for your area.

Back in 2007, I did a range review of the CZ P-01 9mm: click.

... shooting characteristics compared to a .38 JFrame?
The snubbie S&W revolvers, particularly in the lighter variants such as the 442 Airweight that I had, have significant muzzle flip and handle 180% differently than the CZ P-01. The P-01 is rock-steady even during rapid-fire strings. The forged aluminum frame help keps the weight under 30oz, but the gun is balanced enough to respond very well when shooting. It is easy to be accurate with the P-01. Even more so, with the CZ 75, its larger cousin.
One of the things that most drew me to the P-01 was the ergonomics and feel in the hand. There are few pistols that feel quite the same.

As ccw9mm said, an autopistol like the CZ is apples to oranges compared to a small frame revolver.
The CZ guns are one of the most natural feeling double stack pistols I've ever handled. Everyone I know who has shot mine have done very well with them.
The differences in the models you mentioned:
All are based on the CZ75.
P-01 - basically a CZ75 compact with a rail in 9mm.
P-06 - is a P-01 in .40.
SP-01 is a full size gun with a rail in 9mm. Very popular among competition shooters.
They have a bunch of other models as well. I think the classic 75B and compact are better looking than the "P" models. They also offer a single action only model, a Limited class race gun platform, a large model in .45 and a new polymer framed gun. All of them are exceptional values.

The others have pretty much covered the differences between the guns. The only thing I can really add is the P-01 comes with luminous sights where the P-06 comes with true night sights. Just for your info look at the link below and read the torture test the P-01 was put through for the Czech Police who replaced their CZ75 PCR with the P-01. BTW I own both the P-01 and P-06 as well as having a CZ75 Compact 9mm and .40 cal CZ RAMI. My wife has a CZ RAMI 9mm.

Thank you for the information.

Much good info above.
I can comment on the P-06. An alloy framed, railed compact CZ75.
I can vouch for the accuracy.
I have since added three other CZ's to my stable, albeit older pistols.

I have the P-06 as my ccw and as Archer51 and Rmac58 it is very accurate. Love this handgun. Will be purchasing the SP-01 in a few days. Good luck.

If you have experience with the Glock 22, how would you compare the two in terms of muzzle flip?

I also have CZ P01 and like it a lot ,but to me its almost too big as
a CCW, almost. I do carry it but not as much as my M&P9C.
I think $600.00 is a little high but not much.I paid 400.00 for mine
used and I think its a nice shooting gun.I would say it is a good
match up (comparison) to the GLOCK G19 which is one of the
best 9MMs out there,IE if you would like an all medal gun and
like the G19 try a CZ75 P01.

I have a Rami decocker. It's a great gun, very reliable. The only downside is it is very thick due to the double stack magazines.

The CZ Rami shoots better than the Kahr, due to size and weight. If you are going to carry it in a bag or purse, yes.
In a holster? No.
I have 2 CZ's and they are great. Just my opinion.

I carry a RAMI IWB 3:30-4:00, with no problems at all, Just a matter of the right rig and positioning if it.

I would definitely recommend the P-01. it's an amazing shooter and small enough for CC. The size and weight I think are perfect. I sold it because I was looking for something a bit more comfortable to conceal. So I went with a Glock 26. but if I wasn't looking for something smaller, i would have kept it forever. CZ are great guns.
Just for reference. I sold my Used CZ P-01 for $520 locally.
