    CZ SP01 Shadow

    About to splash out on another essential must have item for the Gun Safe.

    What's your thoughts either +/- on this pistol?

    Will mostly be used for social IPSC comps and a few 3gun comps

    Cheers
    Pete

    I like mine but I've only put like 300 rounds through it. Haven't really got anything bad to say about it.

    @gimp

    How do you get on dropping the hammer on a loaded chamber to begin the course of fire in double action?

    Cheers

    Serious answer: I've done the same thing since I was about 10 with lever actions, I don't find it to be a big deal. Never had an ND doing that.

    Teaching is to grasp it with your thumb and forefinger and ease it down while squeezing the trigger.

    How many matches start using double action?
    Never seen a lineup where everyone's got one.

    I love mine. Put shitloads of rounds thru it and only issues it has had, is my shoddy reloading.

    Very accurate and well balanced pistol.
    Nice trigger. Easy to maintain. 18rnd mags.
    Feels like a gun compared to a lot of the composite made frames.

    I don't have anything bad to say about it either. When mine is buggered I will be buying a new one.

    Spend the the bit extra and get a dual
    tone. Wish I did.

    Production class starts Double Action first shot with the Hammer down.

    Although I did notice some SP01 Shadow users starting fully cocked, but this was only during practise.

    I have looked at the Dual Tone but wonder what do you really get for $200 extra.

    Cheers

    I'm prob 6k through mine and the only 1 issue ive had is when i didnt put powder in a round..... Every other time, pull trigger goes bang (not pop, followed by oh shit...)

    Well balanced, ergonomics very good, shoots straight where you point it, also can get away with real light loads.
    And all straight from box.

    I'm about to do some of the polishing etc.. To see if it can get better - either that or i'll F it


    Oh and the hammer doesnt actually go full down on the firing pin either, theres about a 2-3mm gap
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    Shop around, I've seen the dual tone for $1650ish
    They have gone up to $1550ish from $1400 in the last year for the base model.

    I have never shot a proper production match.
    So what happens with 1911 style pistols and the like?

    1911s can't compete in Production class. No SAO guns allowed, they're not on The List.
