i hav an spo1 phantom and it works great. i recently found out that there is supposed to be a conversion kit for a phantom into a shadow. has anyone heard or tried this, they change the sights to novak and fiber optic, but is it really possible to change the decocker to safety? as well as make the trigger pull etc exactly the same as the shadow? will it mate the pros of the phantom with the advantages of the shadow?

anyone who has heard or tried this please help. i need to research before i try it.

Picked up my new Phantom Wed night had the tactical rear put on  never did like the factory sights (don't like the type on a 1911 either)
nice new Bladetech WRS holster (neeed a little work with a heat gun didn't know the frame was wider) but all good now.

Trying it out on Sunday, have shot another one should shoot real good.

I don't believe you can have the Phantom made like a Shadow.  You could reach czcustom.com and see if they can make the conversion.  The sights can be easily replaced with either the Competition or the Tactical rear sight and corresponding taller front black or fiber optic sight.
czcustom.com can also tune the Phantom with the firing pin block intact and the addition of the competition hammer and springs you would have one great Phantom.

You should see if Blade-Tech will exchange your holster for the correct one.  I sent mine in (their just down the street) to have them fit a mold for the Phantom so I know they can make the correct holster for you from the blank made from my Phantom.
It not only is a little wider but the trigger guard is a different shape.

Bit hard to drop it off I'm in Australia. It works ok but the strap won't work properly at half cock. But thats no problem for me.

Love the feeling of my Phantom, but could use a larger grip.  Any suggestions?

I've seen a competitor in USPSA use tape on his grip that is used on tennis racquets.

I personally like the slimmer grip of the Phantom and the ability to customize it with tape.  For me, I prefer grip tape like those used on skateboard decks.

I was wondering if you could share how you find the fit of the actual holster please? How comfortable is the leg harness? Does it fit comfortably around the leg? I look at the video for this holster and it looks like the curve of the leg harness is pretty tight and it kind of stands off the leg a bit instead of wrapping around. Nopt sure if I am explaining that very well.

thanks

The fit of the Blade-Tech Holster, at least mine, to the gun is great.  I'm going to add an adjustable knob, like I have on my other competition holsters, to the higher position bolt/screw and nut (nearest to the part covering the trigger guard) for more on the fly tension adjustment.

As for the Thigh Holster from Blade-Tech, I have no personal experience nor need for that style of holster.

If they offered it with a conventional safety, I'd be all over it. CZ's decockers don't work that good for my shooting style/grip. I grip VERY high on the pistol (I get little worn spots on my thumb when shooting my 1911) and with how I place my thumb, I tend to trip the decocker from time to time. Though if I got one, I think it'd just be to have, because it won't replace my older SP01 as a competition pistol.

Give the Phantom a try.

I had the same issue when I had the SP-01 Tactical and on occasion I would trip the decocker lever and place myself back in double action.

The Phantom seems to me to have a deeper under cut behind the trigger guard and under the beaver-tail allowing me to grip the gun higher and with my thumbs forward grip I don't seem to have that issue as I had with the Tactical.

YMMV.

New to the CZ but not new to pistol shooting.  I picked up a very slightly used Phantom on Monday and it was a hard choice between getting an SP01 (compact) and the Phantom.  Obviously, the Phantom won out ;D Was really looking for a full size pistol more for home and more accuracy on the range as I already have some compact 9 mm's and one 380 (keltec) that gets carried every day.

Took it to the range on Wednesday after cleaning and dry firing with snap caps about 100 times.  At 7 yards the first two shots were about 3 then 2 inches from the bull.  Third shot nailed it :) Really happy with that.  Continued to run 100 rounds of FMJ and then about 4 rounds of my normal SD ammo.  No failures what so ever!  This is the most accurate centerfire that I have shot without any tweaking!  Did think that the sights might need a little work but no, they were right on.  I will probably replace the front sight with a fiber optic (unfortunately czcustom is out of the stock FO sights) or just paint it neon orange like my others.  At 62 yo I seem to be able to pick up the orange alot better/faster.

Started with the flat back then switched over to the arced back strap.  Both felt good but the flat seemed to be the most or best fit for my hand. DA is a bit heavy and may try to get a lighter main spring.  I will keep the same recoil spring.  It seems that the 15 pound is the way to go as I want to make sure the gun goes bang in a SD situation.  Is this correct?  Also, does any one know which of the mags will flush fit witht he bottom of the grip?  The grip is long enough to not need an extension for me.  Not too worried about giving up a couple of rounds. 

Anyway, I'm happy with the gun.
