Grand Power 9mm and other decocker options
« on: November 05, 2017, 06:55:27 AM »
    I haven't had any issues out of my Grand Power 9mm for the last few visits. It seems to just mow through the ammo now. With all of that said... I'm thinking about moving on from it. I might try it one more time with the ZQI 123gr NATO ammo that gave it fits early on to see if that runs flawless now.
    It's kind of a shame it isn't the newer decocker version, or I would be tempted to keep it. Anyone have a good list of 3.75"- 4" barrel length pistols with decockers? I'm debating if I should wait until after Shot Show to see what might surface...

Or a new GP? K100 looks nice.

Has your barrel ever hung up forcing you to wrench the slide open?

The CZ P-01 and PCR are pretty sweet shooting pistols. I hear really good things about the CZ P-07 for accuracy and reliability too.

I admit, I have a CZ problem... So I may be a little biased. I have the safety models though. If you like to tinker CZ's can get you in trouble. Between CZ Custom and Cajun Gun Works there are almost no limits to what you can do. My Compacts have the Cajun Gun Works bushing and I've never come close to reaching their  accuracy potential. Plus the CZ Forum has a really good community with lots of support.

Evidence of my addiction...

No... But I've come close to going out and visiting Dave and Scott. If I lived close by that would be a bad thing.... I would go from doing this for fun:

To applying and hoping to work for them in the evenings or something. I'm out in Utah. Are you close to them?

Why thank you! I'm restoring a surplus 75 right now. It'll join the family pics eventually.

   I have always wanted to get a CZ. I'm waiting to hear back from Henning about a Shadow 2. Very nice CZ's!!!

Whew, those Shadow 2's sound incredible! I haven't heard about Henning's work on them, but I've heard really good things about Cajun Gun Works and CZ Custom working on them. I've heard really good things about them stock as well. A few posts where the smoothness of the Single Action trigger varied between pistols.... My SP-01 is set up like a Shadow and the recoil is nothing, the feel is great. I can only imagine the Shadow 2.

Side note, those two Compacts I have with rails are non-standard. They are a mix of things but have a frame like the Shadow 2. Their recoil is fantastic, so I can only imagine the Shadow 2. If they made that in 10mm I would get a second job to buy one.

I was thinking the Urban Gray might be nice until looking at actual photos. I'm leaning more towards all black or send it for some type of hard chroming.

DE has the urban Grey S2 in stock too, now that I looked. Hard chrome is the finish I dream of for my pistols. Side note, the finish for the S2 barrel is hard enough that you need a special throat Reamer. I've got one that can do their normal barrels.

Interesting information from Henning:

I like the Shadow 2 a lot, but the difference between it and the Stock 2 in performance when both are tuned, is marginal..

I'm trying to see if he sells CZ now. He has been running a Shadow this year.

That's good to know both are comparable in quality. Let us know what you end you doing and how you like it.
