Got my P01!

Had a 75bd for years, finally decided on the P01 as it's sucessor.

Using it in a match tomorrow but I'm already impressed. This thing was built with speed in mind. That beveled magwell makes the gun practically reload itself. First thing I did was install a 16# hammer spring and next will be a fiber front sight. Wow.

You are going to love this gun. I know mine has quickly become that one I would pick from my collection if I could only have one. The ergonomics are superior, at least in my hands.

Enjoy!

They are from CZ Customs. They make the guns super slim. One word of caution about the rubber coated factory grips. There are metal stays inside the grips and as the ribber wears those metal stays can gauge the frame.

Not as good picture quality as WVSig's...



But it's what I can get, quickly, with an iPhone.

VZ Tactical Diamond grips, Black Desert Sand; replaced the grip screws with blued hex screws from CZ Custom shop. Tuned by Matt Mink.



Same pistol, with Kadet .22LR kit.

(Edit: Kadet kits are getting harder to find, but I was able to order mine - in stock - from Cheaper Than Dirt.)
