P07 gen 2. what year?
« on: July 11, 2018, 08:09:56 PM »
as some of you may have seen my WTB thread on a P07 slide. I was wondering what year the gen 2 came out. my frame says 14. the reason I ask is are there any differences in the two? sights and fit are my biggest questions. thanks in advance

Front serrations. Smoothed out edges. 15 round mags instead of 16. Just to name a few

Pretty sure it was early 2014.

Are you asking about comparing the Gen 2 with the Duty model? I can check my duty slide(2012) to see if it fits/functions on my buddy's gen 2. Pretty sure it will.

Dovetails are the same. Mine came with cheesy plastic Glock style sights. My buddy's has metal 3 dots. I'll try to check tomorrow.

I replaced the originals with some plastic tritium night sights that were on clearance at CZ-USA for $40. They've been fine for several years of carry, practice and HD use. I've had this gun longer than any pistol to date, it's a keeper.

Wasn't the trigger shape also changed for the gen 2?
SHUT UP AND RELOAD!

I bought a old DUTY slide for my gen 2. Works just fine. I use the barrel and spring from my other slide (which has an RMR milled in) with no problem. I switch them back and forth on a regular basis.

Yes the trigger was redesigned for the gen 2 models and that's when the changeable back straps came on the scene. The finish on the gen 2 slide is far better than what was used on the DUTY models as well.

 Looks like LonCheney covered this already. I did try my slide on my buddy's 2016 07 and everything fit and dry cycled fine as expected.

thanks to all for the tips. I just bought a 2018 FDE P07 at my LGS today. the slide fits perfectly. I cycled some snap caps through it with no issue. just keeping the slide. selling off the rest :o
