CZ75 CTS LP Carry Optics Project

Recommended Posts

 

Since many folks have decided to gravitate to the Shadow 2 and Carry Optics, I decided to go a different route. Here is my CZ75 CTS LP Carry Optics project. It took about three months to get the milling done, the parts all gathered, and the final fitting completed. It has my usual smooth sub 5lb DA and Sub 2 lb SA pulls.

 

The Delta Point Pro with the optional rear sight is amazing. I honestly did not care for the Trijicon RMR due to the blue tint and the smaller window.

 

I plan on using it for USPSA and IDPA Carry Optics Division. Oddly enough the weight and feel is almost identical to my production gun.

 

Here are some pics of her and her sisters. ;)

Nicely done. I like this setup better than the S2 configuration.  But I'm probably in the minority for that.

I would love to try the Bull Shadow Version. ;)

Very nicely done.  Who did the milling for the optics?  How did you get the trigger pull down to 2lb/5lb, if you don't mind me asking?

CZ Customs

 

Basically you polish anything that moves and use light springs (not the 8.5 lb).  Kneelingatlas has a walkthrough somewhere. I prefer not to use a dremel.

Thanks guys.  That is exactly what I am looking for.  I have CZC SP-01 Shadow that I just bought and is at CZ Custom for the red dot sight milling.  I would like to pick up a stock one and tune it up myself, just for a retirement project.  I'm new to CZ's, so I have a lot to learn.

Did you part out a few tactical sports to build those? Very nice.

Ha! Well I obviously saw the rollmark on the slides. Just wasn't sure if the top ends were available separately or not.

CTS Slides are extremely difficult to come by.

 

Tac Sport Slides in .40, not so much. ;)

I need a taller front sight. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

I have always been curious about these, have you compared the next to a standard slide, i was wondering how all the added weight in the slide alone would feel

I don't have any standard length slides but if memory serves, its only like a 1 ounce difference. The extra sight radius and less muzzle lift are a huge bonus.

Why a long slide for carry optics? I've been wondering if something with a full frame and compact slide would be good... I haven't shot carry optics yet so I don't the trade secrets

Less felt recoil. One can use less powder due to longer barrel which in turn results in less muzzle flip.

 

The main reason is because nobody else is. ;)

Do you have a DA/SA trigger in you gun?  Nice looking gun.  
But of course. Sub 5#/2#. ;)

Is this carry optics legal? Picking up a shadow tac 2 and thinking about possibly getting a longer slide

Yes it is since the slide is the same shape and dimension as the CTS Longslide.

 

That is what this setup is, a Shadow Tac 2 with a longer slide. ;)

An excellent suggestion as well and can be had with Carry Optics Milling. ;)
