Welcome to Club SP-01
« on: December 11, 2007, 02:03:12 PM »

This section of the CZ Forum is dedicated to discussion of the CZ SP-01 family of pistols.

 


The SP-01 is essentially a full-size version of the successful P-01 Compact. In addition to the SP-01, a CZ-USA Custom Shop model is marketed for the U.S. In Europe, the SP-01 Shadow offers similar features to the custom model.

can anyone tell me about the spo1 shadowmate, i just purchased one last week.  It is a upgarded version as far as i understand.  Does anyone have one yet and if so how do you like it.  I really am interested in some reviews.  I paid 1350 for this baby and would like to know am i getting what i paid for.  I know spo1 shadows are great guns for competitive shooting and that is what i am going to be doing.  Any feedback would be great.

I shoot a couple 9mm Walthers and just got my C75 SP-01 Tgt...what a beautiful gun.  I have shot 115 grain 9mm in my Walthers and wonder if anyone uses a heavier bullet with consistent good results....

My son shoots the 9mm Custom Shadow and I shoot a 9mm 75B.   The heavier 124 gr give 'US' less felt recoil at the same power factor as the 115gr bullets.

 We both found 124 gr bullets improved our speed (follow-on shots) and had good accuracy for gun games.  Some like the "snappier" feel of the 115gr, and some prefer the slow push of the 147gr.  The 124gr is what the 9mm was designed for.

It's a shooter's preference/choice.

Ive owned a few CZ's and my last cz purchased was an sp-01. I have loved them all but the sp-01 I bought a few years back is one of those guns that will remain in my possession to the end. What a great shooting and quality piece. I am a huge fan of the sp-01 platform. My dream for it is to send it to CZ custom for a full spa treatment. I will be haunting these pages for as long as you all can stand me. ;)

I prefer the 9 mm in 124 grain in all my 9 mm CZ's. I believe the accuracy is more consistent, although the accuracy with the 115 grn is good as well.
I think it is just a personal preference and what you are accustomed to.
After all, it's a CZ it's going to be accurate!

I have a CZ SP-01. Does anyone know if EAA/tanfaglio witness magazines will work in it? I live in Colorado and can't get the 18 rounders anymore because of gun grabber politics.

Belizejet use the factory 10 rounders. Most of the other brands won't lock the slide back on last round fired.

Does me no good. I'll find some as "repair kits". I refuse to use 10 rounders out of principle.

Wish they carried these Dark Side models in the United States. There custom made guns using cz 75 bases.

I just picked up a sp-01 SAO conversion done by cz custom. This is the best shooting gun i've ever shot . It is more impressive at the range than my sig x5. I let two people shoot this gun and both hit a bullseye at 20 yards on the first shot. Nothing more to say .

Hi all,

FNG checking in.  I just picked up my brand new CZ 75 SP-01 yesterday.  I've yet to shoot it but that will change soon.  First mod will be installing some thinner grips.  I'm currently leaning towards the VZ G10 grips. 

I always do trigger work to my guns, so this one will get a trigger job at some point.  I've been looking at Cajun Gun Works' page and can already feel my wallet getting thinner.  Are there any easy, cheap, or must-do mods I can do myself?  I'd like a lighter crisper trigger, and wouldn't mind bringing the trigger in closer to the grip, especially in DA.

Thanks!

FYI, you should prob just post in the actual SP-01 board not this stickied post. But regarding your question, most likely, the easiest and cheapest mods you can do is changing your Recoil Spring and Hammer/Main Spring. I, myself, did 13# for both springs. Many others do a 11# Recoil and 13# Main/Hammer. Changing the Hammer spring along with a reduced power trigger return spring will noticeably change the DA and a bit on your single action. This will prob cost you <$30 with s/h
