CZ 100 B Trigger Pull?
« on: July 03, 2014, 04:38:05 PM »
Afternoon gang, hope this finds everyone well. Have been seriously considering the idea of pulling the trigger on a 100B...Pun intended! The problem is I have not been able to find anything that tells what the trigger pull weight is. I know it is a DAO design, and I'm wondering is it as bad as the majority of reviews and word-of-mouth make it out to be?

I've personally carried DAO's before and had no issues with respective Beretta and Ruger variants, as well as one of my personal favorites, the Walther P99 QA. Do any of y'all have similar models as I do so that I would have mental comparison versus the 100?

Thanks for any and all input & suggestions!

sorry, I used to check the cz100 forum pretty regularly, but I lost the link. I think that the website has hidden the 100 forum; it's sort of the red headed cz step child.
Anyhow, the trigger pull is often long and gritty.  Mine was.
I have worked the internals with sandpaper and glued a pencil eraser behind the trigger to stop the over travel. It's now light and smooth with a consistent stack and break on every pull.  It's not difficult and there are numerous threads to detail how it's done.  Once that was finished, it was a very accurate pistol.  CZ should have worked a bit longer on the cz100.
It was my first DAO pistol.  I have since gotten my hands around a bunch of other pistols, none of which were what you have.  I do have a P99 AS in .40.  the DA pull on that is heavier than mine, but since it falls into SA after the first shot, it resets quicker than the cz100.  The long reset on the CZ is the difficult part.
Sorry for the wait.

AC, thanks for getting back with me! Right now the closest I have to a DAO is my Walther P99 QA, which I've essentially started describing to people as the equivalent of shooting a hammer-fired pistol DA from the half cock notch but with a low 8½ lb trigger pull. Even though I am sure that I would like the 100, still like to get a handle on it before jumping to get one.

Mine is less than 8.5 lbs on the pull.  Probably 4 or 5.  It's as smooth as you're willing to work on it. 
I took it into elk country with me when I was archery hunting this year. 
it's a solid pistol, once you remove the deficiencies.

Had a 100 at my house to fix for a friend. The trigger pull was long and terrible. I think that the long pull is part of the gun's "safety" mechanisms.  ;D

You know this is a striker fired mechanism, like the Glock. It's a cute gun. My pal wanted to carry it for hiking and backpacking since we had a really famous murder/rape on the AT near here.  (Not the one with the banjo music.) But I told him to sell it because of another fault in this particular gun.

Seems there's a cocking bar that runs along the right side, next to the mag. There's a spring under that bar to lift it so that the slide catches the bar on its way rearward. The force of firing the weapon would make that spring jump off the bar, the gun would not get cocked, and this defeated the entire gun. But not with every shot, and not with every ammo.

In God we trust; On 'starting load' we rely.

Immature reloaders ask: What's wrong with this gun?
