CZ75B Omega - Safety
« on: March 13, 2017, 03:25:48 AM »
Hi All,

Finally I'm proud owner of a new CZ75B Omega, awesome gun by the way.

In some need of advise from you guys. I've read up abit and could only find that the CZ75B can engage the safety at full cock, but with mine it can also engages at half cock. The gun shop advised that it is normal. My question is, is it safe to carry the gun one up, half-cocked with safety on or one up fully cocked and safety on.

My apologies if this has been discussed already.

Thanks in advance.

This question was recently addressed in another thread. Read your owners manual. While the safety will engage at half cock it is not recommended that you do so. This is explained in detail in the manual.

Good to know it is the same with the Omega as it is with the classic trigger system. I was not sure about this one.
Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

Thanks for the response, unfortunately the manual that was in the box did cover that topic. Will check online for another manual.

Is it safe to carry the gun one up, fully cocked and safety on - when I mean safe, I mean in the sense that in the unlikely event the gun had to fall is there a chance that the hammer can drop and fire.

The CZ75B Omega has a Firing Pin Block in its slide. Unless the trigger is pulled the FPB would block the Firing Pin even if the hammer dropped.

The new version of the manual on the CZ-USA website clearly states to only engage the safety in the fully cocked position.

Thanks, I found the manual online and read that. On the manual I have it does not state that. Maybe it's the manual from an earlier model.

Thanks again.

I would consider a "regular" CZ defective if the safety was capable of being applied at partial cock.  Does CZ consider this condition with the Omegas as a defect as well?

From the dealer I purchased mine at they said it's normal, and the new manual I found on the net says the same.

The new manual states that if you engage the safety whilst in half-cock and then try pulling the trigger or racking the slide to full cock it will damage the internal parts - not their exacts words but along those lines.

I'm no expert but I would have preferred for the safety not to work in half cock if it can't be carried in that state.

The manual that came with my Gen 2 P-07 clearly states that while the safety CAN BE engaged in the half cock position that it should not be done as damage to the action can occur.

I'm sure mine came with the wrong manual. Atleast now I know the correct way and not cause any damage.

Thanks for the thread!  I think I'll stay away from the omega /  p-series safety configurations.  Nice to have choices -- assuming you can find your favorite flavor anywhere!

   Just keep in mind that the 75 series "may" have the same issue if you install a race hammer. The safety sometimes can be flipped on at half cock, but is only recommended to use at full cock, just like the P series.

Two guys I met at the range carry their CZ'S at half cock with safety off. Personally there won't be any upgrades on mine as the main purpose for it is self-defence. Out of curiosity would the firing pin block be engaged when at half cock.
