  1. Tried .355" 125 blue's for my first coated bullet trials with my 09. They shot decent. Upon reading up on loading coated bullets in greater detail here and afar, the consensus is that I should try using .356" bullets. Any insight from others loading coated bullets for their P-09's ? I'm out of blue bullets and have no other lead to try and slug my barrel. I need to order more bullets and was thinking I might purchase some SNS .356" 125 RN this time around, as blue doesn't offer a .356" bullet in 125.

    CZ P-09 rear sight

    Thanks. I looked into it more and found the same results about an hour after I posted. I'm going to try to find the correct fixed FO front sight for the load i'm shooting now using dawsons calculator, as the adj rear sight sits way above the slide and it looks like i'll need to put on a pretty tall front sight. I'd like to keep the front sight as low as possible.

    CZ P-09 rear sight

    I received my rear sight, but haven't installed it yet, as I haven't found clarification that I'll be able to shoot my 09 in production class with it installed ? Since it's not a factory part for the 09, I'm assuming it's not.
  4. Suggestions. Can you make a press with a convertible deck height, like a Mec loader ? One setting for a shorter stroke for pistol loading and you can lower the deck for rifle case length capability ? I would be happy to just have a press the size and with the short stroke of a Square deal B, with the option to add a case/bullet feeder. While I have been fond of the workout, after 30+ years reloading with all sorts of reloading machines , I'm tired of the long stroke the presses have to accommodate loading rifle length cartridges.
  5. P-07. Smaller Frame. Multiple Back strap options. Ambi mag release. Decocker or Safety option. CGW and CZ upgrades. If she doesn't like it, you can use it as a carry option. I'm a lefty, was looking for the same requirements as you(except the frame size) and the P-09 has worked for me.

    CZ P-09 rear sight

    Did you settle on the .225" front sight height, or did Dawson recommend a different height ?
  7. I'll need to check out the apex firing pin and hammer now. Is the apex pin pointed like the factory pin, or rounded like the C&S pin ?

    CZ P-09 rear sight

    Any news on your front sight height results ? I already ordered the rear sight.
  9. I've had mine for awhile and it's been a very good pistol, but I expected more from the performance center. Never had barrel or any other issues, except the strain screw backing out in the middle of a comp !!!!! With a few "enhancements" it's been a fun shooting gun and I'm also keeping up with the bottom feeders. I'll be doing some more work to it this winter(Trigger job, Ext firing Pin, .040" moon clips) and have it ready to rock & roll for the 2017 steel season. I got both the 929 and CZ production gun to run with the same ammo, so I'm a very happy camper. I highly recommend it and everyone who's shot mine has been very impressed with it too. Good luck with yours.

    CZ P-09 rear sight

    +1 Maybe make a matched set for the P09, once an acceptable front sight height is decided upon ?
  11. I have a list of recommended parts and spares to order from CGW after hunting seasons over. I've been using the search function to find all I can about modifying the 09 too. Since I'm using it as a training and comp gun, I need to keep it reliable enough to set off all the types of ammo I'm going to encounter, as well as my reloads. I'm going to start with the CGW Ext firing + retain pins, S/S guide rod, 15# recoil spring and Comp spring kit. That should keep it reliable and lighten the DA trigger pull a bit. Very easy mods to do and if needed, I can always install the stock parts. I shot over 500 rounds of different bullet weights and velocities without an issue at all over the weekend. From 4.2- 5.3 grains of longshot behind the 125 grn blue bullet, My match 147extreme 929 revolver loads, 115 grn red reloads, American eagle, wolf and factory Win white box. Gobbled them up and spit them out like a champ. I had the best grouping and smallest velocity spread with the 4.5 grn charge of longshot I tested this afternoon. Too bad I didn't have enough time to test loads before the comp, as I know it would've given me better times for my first production class match. I'm only expecting better things to come with the addition of the CGW parts.
  12. Received my P09 set up with the Decocker on election day. Going to debut it at the last match of the year at the local steel plate club tomorrow AM. It's stock except for the Dawson FO front sight. Swapped the magazine release to southpaw and did a lot of drawing and dry firing over the last couple of days. Just received the safariland mag pouches this afternoon and now my bat belt is complete. During the winter I'll Cajunize it with the recommended parts. Got two loads with longshot powder and 125 grn Blue bullets that worked in a friends STI, so I'm hoping they'll work in my CZ. If not, I'll beg for some rounds. I'm still going to shoot my 929 in ISR, but am excited to see how the CZ will perform. Now I need to try and get some sleep.
  13. Thanks for the concern, but to me there is no debate on safety, no matter how foolproof it's thought to be. That debate is a topic for another section of this forum. I've seen the proof and have read the testimonials that both the SP-01 tactical + P-09 can be made to function reliably with a lighter DA trigger, with little expense and work. After some deliberation, I've settled on the purchase of a P-09 with some upgrades. If I like it, I'll probably buy it's steel framed cousin. That's If I'll be able to buy semi auto firearms after the election, which is a whole different topic.
  14. If the gun discharges during either process, your DQ'd at a match and may have shot someone in another scenario. I've seen a lot more accidentally discharges during the process of letting the hammer down on a live round. This pistol will also be used for live fire training and after the fun ends, it's one less worry to have to deal with, especially with gloves on in cold weather conditions. I thought I was dead set on getting an SP-01 Tactical with decocker, then I find out the P-09 comes with the Omega trigger system and I can have the option of decocker or safety and interchangeable backstraps. I know it's not a steel framed pistol, but after searching this forum and the Google, I find that the 09 is more than capable for what I need to do with it. Like the SP-01 tactical, it's southpaw friendly and has many enhancements available. I thought picking one brand was going to make it an easy decision !
  15. Thanks for the tip's. I have a list of the minimum must do enhancements that I'm going to do, once I have one. Thankfully, Most of these enhancements are cheap and easy to do. The shoot a ton instead of polishing method is right up my ally.
  16. The Prison state of NY. Flatland region, just northwest of the Big Rotten Apple. The main reason why I shoot revolvers and 1911's. Looking to get a southpaw friendly double stack decocker model that has 10 round mags available, and the capability for high cap mags for when I move to a free state. CZ fits the bill and now it's time to get one and have it ready for 2017's Steel season.
  17. I went from a 625JM to a 327JM and added a 929JM soon after. The only one I've had to disassemble was the 929 and it should've never come out of the PC shop in the condition it was in. Was looking into the 627 V comp, as it's a good looking pistol and I hear it shoots as good as it looks. Luckily I never had the chance to fire one, or I'd have to buy one too. Good luck with it and please give at least 24 hours before you take a brand spankin new pistol apart !
  18. I've only handled CZ pistols used in open class in my neck of the woods. All SAO. Most of the production class shooters are using Sigs, HK's and 92's.
  19. I shoot ISR double action with a S&W929 and 327JM and am looking at selling one of them to get a CZ bottom feeder with decocker to shoot production class. I'm looking at getting the decocker model, as I don't want to have to deal with letting the hammer down on a live round before starting a stage or training. I know it can be done, but I just don't feel safe doing it. I'm a southpaw shooter and after reading about the CZ's ability to switch the mag release for LH use and the ambi decocker of the tactical model has me hooked on getting one. The only thing stopping me now, is the heavy DA pull of the stock model and making the DA trigger pull acceptable and reliable for competition + training with an aftermarket kit. Is it feasible and worth trying to accomplish a better DA trigger pull, or should I look elsewhere ?
  20. I need a break from NY and most of its inhabitants. I'll forget about the summer heat right after I hook my first redfish (or whatever fish were going after) of the day. Unfortunately, I'll have to return to NY after living in a free state for a week.
  21. I reside in Rockland county, just outside of the city in the first blast ring of an atomic bomb. Thanks to my father, I've been reloading for 38 years(since I was10 years old) and the only ammo I've had to buy has been .22lr in all those years. I'll be enjoying Florida in a few weeks too, visiting my father. Gulf side, south of crystal river.
  22. Hello, Lurked this site for years and finally signed up today. Been shooting for 30 + years in all types of firearm activities and comps. Mostly revolvers (327JM + 929), but am looking to get into shooting a bottom feeder now, so here I am.
