  1. Has anyone tried using the Australian Shadow extended (4.925") barrel with the CGW 10x bushing? Will it fit? I need a new barrel (another story) and I am considering the Australian barrel for a little more velocity. I shoot ESP (CZ 75 Shadow SA) in IDPA.
  2. Nice work. I too like to ride the safety. I have added to my 75 Shadow SA safety to get the same effect and was wondering what to do if I bought a P-09. Thanks for the example. It may not be legal for Production or SSP but it is legal for ESP (as long as it fits in the box).
  3. It made a difference on my SP-01. Once I had my tools assembled, it probably took 30 minutes to do it.
  4. Has anyone seen the P-09 suppressor ready (5.15" barrel) fit in the IDPA box? CZUSA says length is 8.8". Box is 8.75" with tolerance (sometimes). Thinking of picking one up, but not if it won't fit the box.
  5. It looks to me like you are legal for ESP. Rule disqualifies you from SSP because of the slide machining, however rule allows slide machining for sights as legal in ESP. Since there is no longer a prohibition for the full length dust cover, it looks to me like you are legal for ESP. If you choose, you can add a magwell and be legal for ESP.

    Thank you for the pics.

    CZ Compact magwell

    So, you eventually got it to fit the CCP box, correct? Can you post a picture?
  8. So, there was no downside to leaving it in, correct?
  9. Did leaving the disco in create any other issues, good or bad?
  10. What happens if the disco is not removed?
  11. It is a CZ factory gun. It came from CZ Custom with their sticker on the box (91711), although I bought it second hand. It has the Shadow slide, sear and hammer. The factory trigger is the same as the 75B SA with a slight curve at the bottom and narrower than the CZC flat faced trigger. The previous owner installed the flat faced trigger. If I buy a second flat faced trigger (the reason for my original question), I will install it on my Cajunized SP-01 and remove the disconnector making it SAO. I already shoot the SP-01 as single action from the first shot, now. I just use the 85C trigger. I am trying to decide whether I like the flat faced trigger enough to switch the SP-01 over to SAO. So to reiterate, does anyone know how the CGW and the CZC flat faced triggers compare? Yes, I know I can call David and ask. I was hoping for a 3rd party opinion. Ontos, what say you?
  12. I have a CZC SA flat faced trigger on my CZ 75 SA Shadow. I like it. For you that have both, or at least seen both, how does the new CGW flat faced trigger compare. Is it the same width? I am asking because I order periodically from CGW and might add one to my next order. Thanks.
  13. My CZC aluminum magwell weighs 1.5 oz on my cheap little postage scale. I don't have a scale large enough to weigh the gun and magwell together but with a 40 oz gun and a 1.5 oz magwell plus the little bit that the aluminum base pad's weigh, it should come in below 43.
  14. The SP-01 barrel is the same diameter throughout and there is an internal bushing in the slide.
  15. Yep, weight is 43 oz..and it has to fit in the box like any other ESP gun.
  16. Thanks to a post by Kells81, I read the IDPA ESP equipment rules for 2017. There is no longer a dust cover restriction that I can see. Because of that the SP-01 should be legal for ESP without adhering to the previous rule of, "if it is legal for SSP it is legal for ESP, as long as there are no modifications illegal in SSP" (paraphrased). By being legal without adhering to SSP rules means that the SP-01 will be legal with a magwell, an aftermarket safety and trigger and anything else that is permitted in ESP. Am I on track here? Have I missed something? Let me know quickly because I am getting ready to go have a beer to celebrate.

  18. I can now answer my own question. I swapped out my mag release tonight. The trigger and trigger bar must come out to make the swap on a single action only trigger. However, the sear cage does not need to come out to remove the trigger and trigger bar. Drive out the trigger pin and insert a slave pin. Lift out the trigger and trigger bar (the rear of the trigger bar slides neatly from beneath the sear cage) with spring intact. Swap out the mag release. Reinstall the trigger and trigger bar using a CGW floating trigger pin.
  19. Sorry if this has been posted and discussed, but I just discovered rowdyb's youtube video on shooting the new IDPA classifier. Since we have snow and ice and I won't be shooting it for some time, it was great to get a look at what a Master run looks like. Thanks, Rowdy. By the way, what gun were you shooting?
  20. It would be a guess, whether yes or no. But, I can't adjust it and move it forward without taking it out, which really does seem counter productive. However, the OEM SA trigger does not have the pre travel screw and its position still has the front of the trigger bar covering about half of the staked screw.
  21. I have two 75 SAs. My 75b SA has the factory single action trigger which only has an over travel screw. I have a 75 Shadow SA with the CZC flat faced single action trigger. It has an over travel and a pre travel screw. However, the pre travel screw is located at the top of the trigger and hidden within the trigger opening in the frame. The over travel screw on the CZC trigger is unaccessible without removing the trigger. It still appears that the trigger and trigger bar must come out.
