    Classic!
    Yea, though I walk through the valley, in the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for I graduated from Suarez International's Ultimate Combat Skills Course.

    Is your trigger stock?

    One thing about the CZ pattern guns (including CZ and the offshoot clones like Tanfoglio etc) is that trigger work is fairly complex and they pretty much all need it to some extent. Some of them get away with just some polishing and spring changes, depending how picky you are about triggers, while others need a lot more. Personally I've never handled one built in recent years that was acceptable out of the box, to me, although some older pistols get well broken in with time and feel decent enough.

    While the double action pull is usually just heavy and gritty, the single action is the worst IMO; CZ made the hammer & sear angles such that the single action pull forces the trigger to the rear a little, which makes the pull weight a lot higher and feels crappy. Some 1911 triggers are that way out of the box too, but it's generally accepted in that world that it's something to correct. Few in the CZ world even acknowledge it.

    However, with the right work these can have very nice triggers. The trigger on my Tanfo competition gun is way past where you'd want to go with a carry gun, but just as an example the double action pull is about 5.5 lb, and single action is 2 lb. That took about $400 in parts and a bunch of labor to get there though - in the ballpark of what a lot of guys spend on an entire Glock.

    Yes. Both are stock. I've had to replace the trigger return spring in the 75 twice, but that is the only modification to the 75. I've thought of sending the P-07 to Cajun to have the trigger worked over, but since I bought the guns as more of a curiosity than for any real purpose, it's hard to justify the cost. The trigger pulls on both my pistols seem to stack heavily at the end (DA) and neither break cleanly (DA or SA). If I dry fire the CZ next to other pistols, the sights move more when the hammer falls. H&Ks break cleanly in my hands, and Berettas fall in the middle. A friend has a relatively new P-01 with a nice-ish trigger. I haven't handled a lot of CZs, but my feeling is that there is more variation in their triggers than other major reputable brands.

    I changed my manual of arms where my 75 bd is concerned. I carry the weapon half cock with chamber loaded. By the time the weapon is level and pointed the pistol is in battery and ready to fire. It is very easy to fully cock the hammer while removing the gun from the holster on half cock. Never had a problem shooting the gun in sa mode as the wall is easy to feel and the release from that point is very easy to define. Takes little practice to master that. Only pistol I have that is easier to fire is my Para P-14, and that has had the trigger worked to pretty much perfection for me.
