New CZ75 pcr Passes 1000 rounds
« on: June 06, 2017, 08:28:56 PM »
My new CZ75 pcr [bought in Feb this year] has successfully passed 1000 rounds down range. Nice milestone to be sure.  Over time it has gotten more smooth in operation and after the very first few rounds not a FTE or FTF to report. The wife shot the last mag that put it over 1000 rounds. I was like "happy birthday".  She was like "cool". Anyway I am having fun with this new carry piece. Accurate to a fault at all the defensive distances I shoot. Still thinking about adding new night sights but why mess with perfection? My aging eyes can still shoot straight with a flashlight hold. Hope everyone else is enjoying their pcrs too.  Tag on to this thread and let's see how many rounds others have shot and how their pcr is wearing.

I had my first range trip with mine last week. All went very well, eats all kinds of different profile ammo.

What I don't understand is why am I more accurate with th PCR than my 75 steel compact, and why does the PCR seem softer shooting?

My 75 compact is CGWized and one of my favorites. I had Mepro night sights put on it and the rear liked to move a little. I solved that and have been happy.

But this new PCR I shoot noticably better. Even better than my P-06, which has always out shot my 75. Not that the 75 doesn't shoot accurately, but it's easier with the PCR.

I will give the 75 to my son as a wedding gift, he will love it.

I read somewhere once that shooters are often more accurate with a new gun than with a gun they've shot a bunch.  The theory is that they are paying more attention to the process of shooting with the new gun and groups tighten.  I think that might be the case with me since everything I buy seems to be more accurate than what I have.  Could be the case with the PCR for you. 

I think aluminum framed pistols feel softer to shoot than steel pistols due to the hardness of the material.  For the same reason that you don't see church bells made of aluminum, pistols with aluminum frames feel different than pistols with a steel frame.  That's the theory I have for why my P01 shoots every bit as good as my steel compact, but with a different feel.

OP:  Congrats on the milestone.  One of the best things in the world is a often shot pistol.  They just keep getting better as the round count climbs.

I've got 950 through mine, so next time I bring it out to shoot will take it over 1000. It just keeps getting better. Overall, I do enjoy shooting my BD Police a little more but only slightly.

My PCR has a noticeably stiffer recoil spring than my 75 Compact.  My first impression was my PCR recoiled a bit less than the 75C.

No technical reason, but would suggest that the more you like a pistol, the more confident and comfortable that you will be with it, and that will contribute to good shooting.

Certainly, there is a lot of love with the PCR, and a good case to be made that it is the "perfect pistol".

I took my D PCR to the range today for the first time in months. I had forgotten just how much I love shooting that pistol. It has the CGW Pro Package with Dawson FO front sight and a blacked out rear sight. Shot 175 rounds effortlessly, of which @75 rounds were one handed (and accurate).

Recently, I have been shooting my Glock 43 & 42 quite a bit. I was checking out the work Glock performed on the 42 and I bought some ETS higher capacity magazines I wanted to try out in the 43. I enjoy shooting the single stack Glocks but going from a Glock 43 to the Cajunized PCR is like switching from a Jeep Wrangler to a MB S550.

Tomorrow I think I will take the D PCR and its sibling, a Cajunized P-01 to the range.

Put 350 rounds through my P-01 over the last two days. The P-01 only weighs .6 oz more than the D PCR but it seems noticeably heavier. Must be the balance in my hand. The D PCR seems to suit me better.

Just hit the 550 round mark. PCR has had no issues so far.

PCR for the son's graduation- 150 rds Winchester 147 gr JHP and 100 rds of Speer Gold Dot 147 gr; flawless.
Threw on some VZ G-10 tactical diamonds, a stainless steel guide rod, 16 rd mags, and rubber bumper pads for the OEM mags.
Another 150 rds of Speer  and 100 rds of Winchester white box 115 gr ball; still flawless.  Love the VZ G-10s.

Sorry, I don't do pics...
Wife wants one... so... I may have picked up another...   :-X   ;)

Great thread!  Hopefully with enough input, they'll make it a sticky for PCR tracking...

That's a really good idea Madmatt.  Would be interesting to track the pcrs over time.  I will head back to the range this weekend for another 200 or so. I am particular to the 124gr jhp for carry purposes and the expected 115gr fmj for practice.  I have used 124gr fmj for practice too.  At 7 yards they both aim and hit the same. One is marginally less expensive than the other. In the end the pcr thinks it is all good. Happy shooting!

Recently I made one change with my pcr. I left the factory rear sight on and replaced the stock front sight with a Meprolight ml-17777 night sight. This solved two challenges I wanted to solve.  I prefer my carry pieces to have night sights.  Even over a flashlight they are easier to see in dim lighting.  One problem solved.  Now my pcr has shot low out of the case from day one. Confirmed by the target delivered with the pistol.  I had adjusted my sight picture to compensate [more like a triangle] but I prefer a traditional front sight in the notch level with the rear notch.  With the ml-17777 addition I find myself back to an expected sight picture. Problem 2 now solved!  Yea.  Took about a hundred rounds in practice but it is back shooting how/where I expect it to. Hope everyone else is having as much fun with their pcr as I am!   :)

Took son and daughter to the range for her 17th birthday.
Another 50rds of Gold Dot 147 through the son's for a trouble free total of 550.
First 200 rds of Gold Dot 147 through the "family" PCR; flawless.
Daughter loved the PCR. Same add ons, VZ G-10s and a stainless guide rod. Son appreciated the VZs but did miss the thumb shelf.
