Wow sounds like you and the family had some fun! Haven't run the 147gr through the pcr yet.  I have shot lots of it through the pcr's big brother a CZ 75B. I still prefer the 124gr in both firearms. The sub sonic 147gr recoil felt more like my 1911s.  It was more of a "push" against my hand than a "snap" like I get with the 124s/115s.  Great defensive ammo to be sure with the 147s. Have you noticed any positive mechanical changes yet with your round count? It was around 500ish rounds that I really felt the trigger begin to smooth out noticeably. The slide also was just beginning to silky smooth out nicely as well.  Thanks for the update.  Keep 'em coming!

Almost forgot.  I put a stainless guide rod in the 75B.  How's one working in the pcr? Doesn't seem like it would add a lot of weight to the pistol.

Son's PCR, having 500 rds through, is noticeably smoother on the trigger. Regardless,  the new one shot great and looking forward to getting smoother. Same as with all my guns, cleaned her up prior to shooting but did not overly grease/oil the action to let the parts wear/break in. Probably clean and grease for the next shoot.
SS guide rod does not add any noticeable weight but I like it. The plastic rod, after the first session, looked worn, scarred and bent. With the slide locked back, the plastic one was off center and just felt cheap.
Still early but the PCRs have been great.  Running them from 3yds to 25 yds, one handed (both sides) in close, reload drills, DA first shot always, doubles, triples, quads, have been more than reliable and effective but fun as well.  After 20+ years carrying the Sig 220, then forced to carry the Glock, I think I've found my retirement EDC.
Although my daughter was shooting faster than I wanted, she made 100% center mass hits inside 10 yds. Proud of her...

madmatt I'm from the old school of lube 'em up until they drip and keep them wet during break in.  HA it was amusing to come home from the range with my dominate hand grease spotted. For some time now I have used grease on the rails of my guns instead of oil. Yes, I do eventually clean the firearm up so it doesn't resemble an oil spill. Still a proud grad of the Run 'em Wet School. 
Very happy your young one is hitting center of mass even at an accelerated speed. Our pcrs will do that. Yea!  For me too the pcr is becoming my fav carry weapon.

My bad, I meant I don't grease the trigger action, hoping the trigger smoothens even more when worn. 
Absolutely grease the rails, any smiley on the barrel, etc.

And, another problem free 200 rds of Gold Dot 147s through the "family" PCR.

Me too. Though without anything like scientific proof, I'm convinced that it contributes to the longevity of the firearms by helping to mitigate stresses during break-in. So, keep 'em dripping those first 500 rounds or so.

Sooltauq you are a brother!  I agree with you completely.  Shoot 'em drippy and make 'em last.  LOL

Well, another 200 rds of Federal 115gr FMJ and 50 rds of Gold Dot 147gr.  Getting faster; groups tighter. Got around to applying grease to the trigger mechanism.  Trigger is significantly improved from initial purchase. Was never bad, but really great now. And no problems at all.  16 rd mags fed flawlessly, CZ 14 rd OEMs with rubber bumper pads were also perfect.

Very nice Madmatt!  I ran 200 rounds through the pcr last weekend myself.  Using Freedom Munitions remanufactured 115gr 100 rounds and Silver Bear 115gr 100 rounds. Performed like a charm! Tomorrow if all goes according to plan it is .45 day at the range.  Just reloaded 400 rounds of .45acp and they are begging to be shot.  My wife loves her .45 and shoots it like a natural.  Sometimes short, fat and slow is the round of choice.  LOL

"Sometimes short, fat and slow..." I resemble that... also
"old" and optimistically "effective."

CZs can take a serious pounding. I'd consider anything under 1k still like new. Great firearms. I'd expect to get no less than 50k out of a cz pistol that was well maintained or even not so much. They are like tanks

I completely agree

Agreed Morbid1x CZs in my experience too are built like the proverbial tank.  Thank goodness!  That means that I will not have to replace the ones I have within my lifetime!  Yea.  I can Will them to my kids and grandkids and they will be able to use them all they want too. Don't know that I will shoot any CZ out, ever.  That's another reason I like them so much.  I love all metal firearms because they last.  No melting an all steel weapon locked up in the car on a scorching hot summer day!  Heck just fry an egg on it and then go to the range with it.  LOL

Another 100 rds of 147gr Gold Dot through with the trigger probably reaching its plateau for smoothness without 'smithing; still significantly smoother than when first purchased.

I LOVE my PCR.  :)

Got it in December and have ~1500 rounds so far... all perfect.
It was Cajunized, so it has a fantastic trigger and reset.  Also it has Dawson F/O front and back sights and 10X bushing.

As others have indicated, it is extremely accurate.  Indeed, I shoot the PCR better than my full-size 75 for some reason.

Congratulations on reaching your 1000 round mark.  You'll surpass this X 20, I am sure!
