Maybe, but I'd like to think not!

Always with the negative waves, Moriarty! :D

Just think of it this way, it it hasn't been worked on, then there were some good triggers out there. If it had been worked on by the previous owner, then it shows the potential for making a good trigger with that model. Congratulations on finding this and hoping it handles and shoots well for you, Cyanide.

I am going to have to say I wonder if somehow, someway the previous owner did any did work on this trigger group? Average of three pulls on a Lyman digital scale was 8.6#! Pics coming asap...

Not the greatest grouping, but I like this thing! I didn't have lots of time for the range today, but here's my first 30 shots; 10 each @ 7, 10, and 15 yards:


Then the next 25:


Comparison pics coming soon....

Yes, the trigger is horrible. I had two in .40 (along with 2 75B's, long story). Pulling the trigger reminds me of winding a cheap alarm clock BUT BUT BUT they were both very accurate. I carried one for a couple of years, had the other for HD. Eventually they were recycled to family members who preferred utility to aesthetics, as I moved over to prettier guns. The trigger pull was so bad, though, I couldn't fire more than a box thru either one without having to stop. You know the "horn" on top of the slide was designed for one handed chambering, perhaps on a duty belt.

Thanks FJ!

Fredward, looks like I am definitely odd man out, as I actually like the trigger pull and after the limited amount of shooting I did today, it went on my side. Either the previous owner must have smoothed out the trigger action or I'm just very in tune with DAO triggers, because from what everybody else is saying about how bad the 100's are, this thing is exactly what I have been wanting. Not saying I would try using it for competitive shooting mind you, but for defense I am digging it.

Thanks Tok36! Here's my next quick group from earlier this afternoon, 10 shots each at 7, 10, 15, and 20 yards. Getting it tightened up a little bit! The digit on the end signifies what string of fire (1 = first, 2 = second, etc.).

Another quick trip to the range today. Not getting to shoot much, keeping busy here on my time off at home. Long story short, I'm really, really liking this pistol...A LOT!



Here's a few pics showing it in my hand:

Well, had to rush through another range visit today before coming back to work a little while ago, so I figured I would see how this thing would do performing LOTS of double-taps @ 7 & 10 yards. Meh, not the greatest, but I'm still pleased with the results, especially since only gonna get better over time.

Y'all have a great night!

Sorry if I'm bothering any of y'all, just sitting here bored in Casper, WY waiting to finish unloading so figured I'd put up a few more pictures.

Here's the same shots I have over in the pistol comparison thread of my CZ 100 vs the P-07.  They are practically identical in size, with a few minor differences here and there, but namely the slide width, the slide serrations, the grip serrations/checkering/stippling, and the edges That being said however, the CZ 100 is noticeably lighter and has a much easier slide to rack, no doubt due to the lighter recoil spring it has.







I know the majority of people don't like the 100, but because of how smooth my trigger is, the light weight, the natural balance & point-of-aim, and how easy the slide is to rack, it has definitely caught positive attention from a very good friend of mine who is an almost life-long victim of Multiple Sclerosis with extremely limted hand and arm strength, and has had operating issues with every pistol I have ever shown and let fire. That is, until now. And add to it the ease of disassembly (almost as easy as Steyr, shown below) and the CZ 100 definitely has added another fan and future owner.

As always, start by ensuring the weapon is clear:


Just like the majority of other CZ's, move the slide back about a ΒΌ" and push the take down pin out from the frame.


Remove it, then dry fire the pistol to release the sear, and push the slide forward off the frame.


Another little interesting thing about this pistol, is it's unique loaded chamber indicator. When empty it sits flush with the slide, when loaded it protrudes noticeably.

You're certainly not bothering me. I've enjoyed all the comparison pictures that you have posted. They have been excellent. Keep them coming.
