Re: CZ-75 Upgrades
But just a comment: The single action adjustable overtravel trigger (SA AOT trigger) is not a cure all for the tactical trigger mechanism CZ provides in the CZ75B originally.
When the overtravel adjustment is made to be optimum, the trigger will not reset. The adjuster has to be backed off to where the trigger resets, not to minimize the overtravel.
A few years ago I added the SA AOT and found this out. When I reported it here Angus Hobel, CZ pro shooter and CZ gunsmith, responded with that was the way it is. It seems the CZ trigger mechanism is optimize for the intended use of the gun, tactical, which includes the need for a good double action first shot, at some expense to the single action function.
This is not bad but just the way CZ decided to design the gun. In the tactical world CZ has an excellent reputation. When you try to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear sometimes you can not succeed.
With the SA AOT trigger and a lighter sear and hammer spring along with a trigger job for the hammer/sear (or an aftermarket sear/hammer if any are still available) the CZ75 makes an acceptable target pistol. Add the Kadet 22LR conversion and you have an excellent pair but as a 22 target pistol the Kadet is not in the same league as a S&W Model 41 or a High Standard Trophy or Victor.
This is not to take away from the CZ75B or the Kadet but all guns have limits and match target shooting with the CZ is out of its limits. The SA AOT trigger addition is not a waste but just does not deliver a match level trigger but does deliver better action for those of us with smaller hands and shorter fingers.
Regardless of this trigger situation, I love my CZ75B and my CZ 97 and even my CZ 52 (and various CZ rifles and a shotgun by them). CZ makes great stuff!
