  1. Haha, well said! I hear this all the time too. Limited minor doesn't make sense, this, that, or the other. I'm not a pro and likely won't be, I don't reload and can leave my 9mm brass all over to grow new 9mm ammo. And yes, I do realize this was from March...
  2. And the more you look, the more reasons to get it! And then you stumble across CZ Customs and CGW with all the sexy things they do. Before you know it, you have five and refuse to part with any of them. I may or may not be speaking from experience...
  3. Good deal and you had good luck on the mags running out of the box. Unfortunately, a lot of 2011 mags require quite a bit of tuning to get them to run reliably. Even after they are tuned, you run into them eventually needing to be re-tuned. If you know how, no big deal, but if you have to send them off to a pro, then it becomes even more of an investment into just the mags.
  4. I shoot both CZ and 2011 platforms. I believe this will be a great gun for newish, slightly seasoned shooters. The benefits of this is: price point for a well made blaster, much cheaper mags that won't require a lot of tuning, and ergos. I am into each of my 2011 mags at least $90 but more around $110. Using existing CZ mags for $35 and figure around another $40 for extensions and guts. Once I get to shoot one, and reliability has been put to the test, I may abandon the 2011.
  5. Those are pretty good pull rates! Given the feedback of others saying it’s a steady pull and not spongy; this sounds like something I will try.
  6. That looks really good! Did you tri-top the slide or is that just the lighting?
  7. Tell him to pick up or borrow a regular Tac Sport non-orange mag and see if he has the same issue. I only shoot Freedom Munitions 115, 124, and 147 grains. Never had any magazine issues out of my non-orange TS with their ammo. No issues with both the stock springs/followers or the CZ Customs springs/followers/extended base pads.
  8. It's actually a good sign for us commoners. Once their shooters have them they will start trickling down to distributors. I'm right with you my friend, can't wait to get one!
  9. They make sure their team shooters are sporting the latest and greatest.
  10. Just received an email notification that Kentucky Gun Co has 9mm TSOs in stock $1569.
  11. Talked to CZ-USA today about a web store order and asked when the general public should start seeing the Shadow 2; late March is what I was told. He said some will likely be out before then but not in large numbers.
  12. That was my guess, just wanted to confirm, thanks!
  13. There is one on GB with a starting price of $2999 and buy now of $3199. Pretty outrageous...
  14. I have ended up with an extra complete 9mm Tac Sport slide and since I have an addiction to tinkering with my CZs, I want to put it on an SP-01 frame. This more of a question for Stuart and Atlas, but if anyone else has done this, please chime in. What are the necessary modifications to make this happen? I have converted the SP-01 to SAO. I know there is a mod needed to the slide but have been unable to locate the specifics. I have lots of tools at my disposal and am pretty competent and confident in my smithing ability. Thanks for any and all insight!
  15. Lol, I don't know if they are that finicky!
  16. Have you tried different magazines? Not trying to be that guy, just asking. Is there any evidence of pressure on the trigger bar from the mag?
  17. Second on the CZC extensions, they run great. Where did you pick up the TS Orange?
  18. Just got one of those in the mail today…

    Rear Sight Moving

    You can stake it. You can also put the sight back to your zero, remove the set screw, drill a small divot for the set screw to grab a hold of and locktite the set screw. This way you have not only friction but a mechanical fixture to hold the sight. The divot would be similar to the ones under an AR gas block.

    rear sight

    Factory sights? It shouldn't be much of an issue. Mark the slide so you know where you started in case you move it too far. Delrin block or punch if you don't have a sight tool.
