Yes, and they're better for CCW than the standard P01 mags. That rubber baseplate always catches my shirt.

Anyone out there have a Rami? I saw one for sale, but it was the manual safety version. Would've bought it if it had the decocker.

Opinions on it?

Compact mags will fit in all compact (P-01, PCR, 75 compact, Rami) CZ pistols except the P-07 which uses its own mags.

The P-07 will feed from standard compact magazines. They rattle a little, but they fit and feed just fine.

I've never seen anything bad said about them but I've never even seen one in person, its hard to get a sense of it's size.

They're small. I saw one at $350 a year ago without a mag, I reaaaally regret not buying one.

They're just as fat in the grip and they have the same thin slide as the other CZ pistols, but they are quite a bit smaller in overall size. Super cool too.

I'll go ahead and answer my own question. The Rami is pretty cool. It's a little chubby brick like the G26, but slightly thicker and taller. I was able to squeeze 3 fingers under the trigger guard. The slide is a bit thicker than the P01 actually, kind of flush with the frame - looks similar to the P07 in some ways. The guide rod is all metal and has a double spring. I'll have to take it to the range later this week. Came with one 10rd mag and a 14rd extended one.

Are there many holster options for a CZ P-07? For the life of me I'm not finding anything.

E: Ones with an option to include a TLR-1 would be awesome. Best to just make something custom with Kydex?

Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.

I bought a Kydex OWB holster from this guy back when I had a Caracal since he was the only one I could find who made holsters for them. Looks like he makes ones for the P-07 as well. I thought the quality was pretty nice for a $60 holster, and he shipped it relatively quickly.

I'm getting fail to extracts about once every 7 or 8 rounds in my 75. Happens with both steel case and brass case ammo (although problem seems a lot worse with steel case). I'm thinking I need to change out my extractor and extractor spring. Should I go with the factory extractor spring or the EXTRA POWER spring. Are there any other parts I ought to replace while I'm at it? My pistol is mostly a collectible which gets taken to the range probably 4 or 5 times a year. I want to keep it OEM as much as possible while making it more reliable. I'm assuming czcustom.com is the go-to place for parts, tell me if there is a better alternative.

If it's an older pistol, replace the magazine spring as well. Also, just try changing the extractor spring - the extractor is probably fine. For a short term solution, spray some brake cleaner or something into the extractor channel - residue will build up in there and cause issues.

Extremely clean transitional model: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=387945099

Refinished? Color appears a bit odd. Grips are curious though, I would have thought it would have had the older style.

Not a transitional - standard pre-B. Frame appears to be original finish. Slide looks blued, and the import stamp looks wayyyyyy too clean to have been applied after the finish, so I'm guessing that at least is a refinish. The grips look correct - waffle grips weren't used all that late into the 80's, and frequently cracked, so if it came with them originally it is entirely possible they were replaced. Cool gun, but I'd pass - if you want a shooter pre-B, go for one of the ones that are half the price but more beat up, and if you want a collector, find a non-import (they typically aren't all that much).

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

Anyone running VZ grips on their 75? I have been wanting the cz custom thin aluminum grips for some time but a lot of people with big hands say they are too thin. It looks like the VZ grips are about halfway between the fatty fat rubber grips and the aluminum ones. How aggressive is the checkering? How do you like them? I just find it hard to drop $80 on something that I can't touch before hand.

Just received my VZ Frag texture grips for my SP-01 and I really like them. They definitely FEEL thinner than those lumpy rubber grips from the factory. Other people here recommend the tactical diamond texture but I have soft office workers hands so I went with the frag and it seems fine and perfectly grippy. Overall I consider them a vast improvement in terms of comfort. Also I got the dark-cherry color and drat it looks good.

Does the SP-01 Shadow not exist anymore? Has it been superseded by the "shadow target" and the "accushadow" ??

Shadows still exist, and CZ has told me that the Kadet kits work with them. I have heard that they may require some "modification" but I don't know if this is true or what that entails.

Kadet works swimmingly on my SP-01, but you WILL need to file down two surfaces (sorry, no pictures because the gun isn't with me right now) and you may need to tinker with different slide stops to figure out which one will lock back on empty. Some do, some don't. It's weird. A lot of people say the PCR slide stop does it, but it never worked for me. I've got a little baggie full of different slide stops that I bring with me and never, ever remember to remember which one is the right one.

That advice is standard kadet kit installation procedure and not something special to just that model. Some pistols will run perfectly fine but if you have multiple used cz's that you run it on, you most likely had to file those tabs to get it to run in all of them. Mine was fine on my p01 but needed filing for my 75bd.

How have people found accuracy with the Kadet kit? the Kadet 2 kit looks like it has nice-ish sights?



Would be looking at it as an alternative to a Ruger 22/45 just for practice pretty much, so I could use the same grip/trigger as my (future) SP01 Shadow but with cheaper ammo.

The ruger will be cheaper. I can't attest to the accuracy as I've never shot one, however I can't stand the 22/45 series of pistols.

I just bought a CZ 75 B in .40 S&W. I was at my local gun store for a completely different reason and saw one in the display case at a pretty good price, both of which are pretty rare in SoCal right now.

I've wanted one in 9mm or .40 S&W forever and this 10-day waiting period can't pass by fast enough as far as I'm concerned. It felt sturdy and good in my hand and I'm looking forward to taking it to the range soon. The guy who sold it to me said he has one too and recommended that I get rubber grips with finger grooves from Hogue, but I think I love the grip just the way it is now.

Unless you sweat profusely [fat goon joke goes here] and keep losing grip on the gun, those hogue grips are painfully overrated. Stick with the factory ones for now and see how you like them.

The stock rubber grips have a palm swell but taper off toward the top where you'd put your thumb. The Nill grips are actually thicker near the top.

I'll post a comparison when I get home.

edit: imgur is overloaded as hell, but turns out I am wrong, the Nill grips are actually thinner. I'll post the comparison pics when I can. Also I misread your post and thought you said P01 somehow.
