    I used to be strictly a hammer fired, all steel pistol guy. A few years back I transitioned over to Glocks, and I still appreciate them, but no matter how you trick them out they still feel like a chunk of plastic. I started looking to replace my EDC (a G26), and settled on the CZ P-01 Omega convertible.

    The P-01 is roughly the size of a G19, and in fact I purchased two leather pancake holsters made for the G19 which fit the P-01 like a glove. The "convertible" means that the safety can be easily swapped for a decocker, which is how I have mine set up. I've heard good and bad things about the Omega trigger, and I ended up with a bad one. The DA pull was close to 20# and the SA, although fairly light, was gritty and had three separate hitches before finally breaking. I had already decided to install the CGW Omega kit before purchasing the pistol so this didn't bother me, but I was very curious to see how much improvement I'd see from the cajunization.

    All I can say is "wow". Now the DA is a buttery 7.75# and SA is a crisp 3.75#, and the pistol is a joy to shoot. The kit was surprisingly easy to install, and the only tool you really need is a screwdriver to remove the grip panels. I had a small timing issue, but David from CGW was very helpful and I was able to resolve it fairly easily.

    I'm keeping my Glocks and the G17 will stay on the nightstand for the time being, but the CZ will be on my hip and at the range. A year from now I wouldn't be surprised if a SP-01 is my new nightstand gun.

    Great looking jewel. Those P-01 and SP-01’s are way underrated and excellent pistols!

    Beautiful pistol. I have lusted after these now for awhile. I may be pushed over the edge after seeing this one!

    I have never even held one of those CZs heard good things about em. I don't think anyone has ever brought one to an EnS (hint hint).

    I was really just kidding about how nice the pistol looks. It’s ugly. Butt ugly. I feel sorry for you so I’ll trade you a Glock 19 AND a 43 for it so you won’t be so ashamed.

    Underrated? I’ve NEVER seen a bad review on a CZ. Not as common on the LGS shelves as your everyday Smiths and Glocks and Rugers and so on perhaps. Maybe I’d say somewhat unappreciated because not that many are around. After he trades this to me, (for BOTH a G19 AND a G43 with 5 mags each)I’ll bring it to the next ENS.

    If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times. The P-01 is hands-down one of the best pistols ever made.

    Thanks for the offer, but I'll suffer along with the CZ for a while longer! Seriously, though, I do still like my Glocks. Heck, I gave my sister my G19 and my niece a G42. It's nice to have so many choices when it comes to quality firearms.

    I think CZs are getting more popular, especially since the release of the P-10c. I doubt they'll ever have a significant piece of the market here in the US, but that's primarily due to the current plastic fantastic craze and CZ is too late to the game. From what I've heard they sell them as fast as they can ship them over here, though.

    CZ's are tits, I have A Scorpion, CGW P-09 and P-07, & TSO. So damn accurate it's nuts. I'd like to feel one of those P-01s but I know I'd have to buy one.
