This was clearly not a doctored up review gun from CZ-USA. They just took one off the pile and sent it, and mine were probably the first human hands to touch it since the assembly line

I feel that these ridges on the slide are the most important feature on the P-07. All CZ-75s are harder to rack than other pistol designs, and these ridges are perfect in my book for holding onto that slide without hurting your fingers.

For many police officers and most security guards, the choice of what pistol to carry is left up to you. There is generally an approved list and it is up to you to pick your duty pistol, holster, and on-duty gear. There are a number of issues to consider, but often it comes back to what you like, what you shoot well and of course, what you can afford.

The CZ-75, which is the steel or alloy gun on which this polymer framed P-07 model is based,  is one of those “preference” guns that people just like and naturally shoot very well. It is  by far the most popular pistol internationally among police and military, and many people refer to it as “the perfect pistol.”  It has also become one of the most copied pistols in history, second perhaps only to the Colt 1911.

The P-07 Duty series seeks to answer some of the needs thought to be missing in the original CZ-75 and the various copies.  This .40 S&W version is the newest addition to the line, and as more and more police departments and security companies move away from the 9mm to the more potent .40 S&W, this P-07 has become the most notable competitor to enter the fray.

The biggest difference between the P-07 Duty and a regular CZ-75 is of course the polymer frame. With the popularity of striker fired polymer pistols, many departments and security companies have put this into their specification for officers and guards, that it has to be a polymer framed pistol. But faced with a field of mostly striker fired pistols, there are few options for for those who don’t care for the spongy first shot and risk of accidental discharge associated with those guns.

To date, there is also only one military that has adopted a striker fired pistol, and it is Austria, where Glock the original striker fired polymer pistol,  is located.  The reliability of a hammer fired pistol and the safety of a heavy double action first shot have won the day as a sidearm internationally, and even 20 years later it will remain to be seen if the striker fired pistol is just a passing fad even here in the U.S..

So while answering the call for a polymer framed CZ-75, for both the domestic and international markets,  CZ-USA also addressed a number of other issues with the gun.  One is the trigger pull.  They completely redesigned and simplified it, resulting in a smooth and consistent pull. This is important for shooters who don’t practice much (as many law enforcement and security professionals do not), because you can pull the trigger from anywhere on it and the pull will always be the same.  The standard CZ-75 trigger is considered very good, but competitors generally slick it up with a gunsmith, and practice holding the trigger in one place so it doesn’t “stack up” which can happen with double action triggers in both pistols and revolvers.  The new trigger system is called the Omega.

There is also a front accessory rail on the P-07 Duty series, and the polymer frame has been molded with a very aggressive “skateboard tape” feel.  Also, unlike the standard CZ-75 that has a slide made from a cast form, the P-07 slide is machined from solid  bar stock with tapers toward the front to make the gun more evenly balanced.  The result of these changes is a gun that scores at least a 9.5 in the “cool factor,” and an extremely sleek and useful profile that is easy to hold onto and meets the needs of a true law enforcement or security professional.

The lever on the side of the P-07 Duty can be configured one of two ways. Our test gun came in the default de-cocker mode, where the lever is used to de-cock the pistol after you chamber the first round by racking the slide. This makes it so that the firing pin safety never disengages as the hammer is dropped. The “manual safety” built into a de-cocker gun is that first heavy double action trigger pull characteristic of all double action/single action pistols. Subsequent shots are of course fired single action, and if you are done firing but the gun is not empty, you can return the gun to the “safe” position by again using the de-cocker to drop the hammer.

The alternate configuration on the P-07 Duty requires a simple part swap (demonstrated in the CZ Youtube video here) and it re-configures the lever to a manual drop safety, with no de-cocker.  So you can carry the gun as double action/single action with a drop safety, or “cocked and locked” in single action, but you have to manually drop the hammer with the trigger and your thumb.  For those who plan to carry the gun without a round in the chamber, or if you plan to use it for home defense and store it that way,  you may also choose this option so that first round after you rack the slide is fired single action with a drop safety.

With all of these new features it is hard to argue that the most important one is the addition of great serrations in the slide, but in my experience with the CZ-75 as a whole, it is the most important thing that they have added to the P-07. .

The CZ-75 is a very popular gun, and people shoot it well for a reason. It has an extremely low bore axis in relation to your hand because the slide rails are down in the frame, not on the outside of the frame. So where with many guns you feel like the barrel is up on top of your natural point of aim, with a CZ-75 you feel like it is more an extension of where you naturally point.

The downside to this is that many CZ-75s are extremely hard to cock.  The genuine CZ-USA models are generally manageable in this regard, but I have shot some CZ-75 copies that I have actually passed around the range and asked people if they could rack the slide, and many couldn’t.

I have tried to show you from the side the serrations on the P-07. They are the perfect amount of grab, so they don’t feel like they are cutting your fingers, but they are sharp enough so feel like you have a grip on the gun, that it won’t snap out of your hand before you get it all the way back. Combined with the smoothness of the P-07 action, I find that racking the gun is not unpleasant at all, and that the average shooter won’t find it difficult or punishing. The “too hard to cock” problem on many versions of the CZ-75 is a deal killer for many people, and I feel that the P-07 has addressed this handily.

The first thing I would like to say about this particular review gun is more of a general comment on CZ-USA. When CZ sends you a review gun, they literally take the next one in the pile and send you it without even opening the box (other than to verify serial number possibly).  They have 100% faith in their own quality control and every gun goes out the door as good as the last. I personally think this says more than the features or attractiveness of any firearm.  Every CZ works out of the box with no break in or gunsmith purview, and that says a lot. This gun had clearly never been taken out of its plastic wrapper and never failed over the several hundred rounds I was able to put through before sending it back.

It is hard to review good guns. You feel like you have nothing to say other than that it is good. The P-07 delivers on everything it promises and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase one, wipe off the packing oil, load the magazine, rack a round and drop it in my duty holster, ready for duty (no I am not someone on duty at this juncture). I would put my life in its hands right out of the box.  Many guns that I would normally sing the praises of I would not award with that moniker. So take that for what it is worth.

Every detail of the P-07 Duty was clearly thought out, developed and put into a manufacturing system that accepts no compromises.  In a day to day duty gun that you plan to bet your life on, the P-07 Duty is an extremely safe bet.  The P-07 is “ready for duty.”

    I have a P07 9mm, it feels great and is an accurate firearm that I count on.
    If you take the slide off you will notice a bulge in the polymer on the right side.
    If CZ would fix this issue it would be a awesome pistol, but they missed this detail.

  • Woodie April 18, 2011, 12:28 pm

    This “bulge” has NO impact on the function and accuracy of this pistol and is so insignificant as to be seen only by the most picky of individuals. It has no affect on the looks; and as mentioned, one has to take off the slide and look down the frame to even notice the insignificant “Bulge”. It is not part of the frame which guides the slide. These pistols are very accurate, and have good balance and feel. Recoil is quite light for a low weight pistol. This pistol shoots so easily and accurately that you take it for granted and have to be careful that you don’t become slopy with your technique.

    • Gaige April 20, 2011, 12:10 am

      Woody, I have both of these guns, the Baby Desert Eagle semi-compact in polymer frame, as well as the CZ P-07, and both are in .40S&W. I agree with this review whole heartedly. The P07 is slightly smaller than the BDE, but has the same ammo capacity, and has a slimmer profile, which is why I got it, to use as my concealed carry. However, the stock sights on the BDE are much much better than the P07′s in my opinion. I cannot wait to get the stock sights changed on my P07, and will be doing so shortly for night sights. Both guns shoot well, have relatively little recoil, and sight very naturally. I only wish that they made a hexagonal barrel for the P07, like the one on my BDE, as I do prefer that style for better accuracy with a wider range of grains. Both guns are tack drivers out to 60-75 yards, and neither is a bad choice for any reason.

  • Jelwyoming April 18, 2011, 9:19 pm

    How does this new CZ compare to the current polymer version of the Baby Desert Eagle. It is also a copy of the CZ75?

    • Gaige April 20, 2011, 10:01 am

  • Toufic April 19, 2011, 6:14 pm

    i have recently bought a cz 75 p-07 duty 9mm brand new. im facing difficulties loading the magazines to full capacity (16 rounds). the problem is that my gun is not taking the mags that have 16 rounds instead its only accepting the mags that are loaded with 15 rounds. note that when the mag has 16 rounds in it, if shaken it makes a weird noise as if something is loose in the mag. both mags are causing the same problem. if someone can help i would highly appreciate it. 10x

    • Bryan April 21, 2011, 1:26 pm

      The magazine is a 15 round magazine in most cases, the 16th round is “in the pipe”. Assuming default factory mags. I am aware of 15rd factory CZ mags and 18 round CZ factory mags. But it is possible I am missing something, are the check holes on the side of your mag labeled 5, 10, and 15? Or something eles?

      • Remy June 8, 2011, 2:46 am

        The p07 is supposed to hold 16 rounds. I can guarantee this since I just purchased one two days ago. The side of the mag is marked to 16. I haven’t had a problem with it loading a mag with 16 in it. My only difficulty was feeding the sixteenth round into the magazine. I simply just let the two provided mags sit for a couple days loaded with fifteen and this softened the spring enough to load sixteen easily

  • J Urban April 20, 2011, 8:56 am

    Have a CZ P07 in .40 caliber. Love it except that it has lots of problems shooting flatter-nosed FMJ rounds (S+W white box 180 grain and Rem UMC 180 grain). Seems to have a failure to extract as the spent casing abuts the next rounds flatter bullet surface causing the gun to jam. This doesn’t occur with more rounded loads like Ultramax.

    This is a new gun and it has always had this problem. Disappointed that it is not as reliable as everyone else says. Called CZ, sent them photos, they say it is a failure to extract and that it is an easy fix. Not too thrilled to have to send it back and be without it for several weeks.

    Anyone else with this problem or thoughts on this issue?

  • Josh May 1, 2011, 11:36 pm

    Hey J,
    I have an SP-01 that I had to send back, The night sights were incorrectly dovetailed and the blued outer controls on the frame where rusting after 3 months. They said the gun I purchesed had been sitting too long in a wharehouse or shop which caused all the oil inside and out to dry which caused the rusting, the barrel was stained brown from the oil, and they said the sight issue was a frak occurance and instead of cutting the slide to adjust the sights they called me and told me they where sorry my gun wasn’t in 100% condition and I would be getting a brand new, just out of the factory SP-01. They paid the shipping both ways and in 2 days after they recieved it they had the new one overnighted to me. All in all it took 9 days and no money from departure to return. Don’t stress, I would say you would be hard pressed to find any other company that can give you that quick of a turnaround and customer satisfaction.

    I’m a 68 year old newbie who’s interested in purchasing the PO-7 Duty. My question is should I stay with the default de-cocker mode or reconfigure to a manual drop safety, with no de-cocker

    • Administrator October 23, 2011, 10:53 pm

      I’m carrying it right now with the decocker and the double action pull is an effective safety I think. Nice gun.

  • Robert Lee November 24, 2011, 8:26 pm

    I am interested in purchasing the P-07 Duty .40 S&W as a back up self defense but It would only be a backup for my Springfield Arms .40 S&W XDM. From what I’ve read and seen P-07 is not in the same class as the XDM. If I can get it for around $399.00 I will consider it for backup status, 16 and 1, over a thousand rds in the last 6 weeks and not ONE hiccup with all the bells and whistles the XDM is clearly a different class of PDW.I am not knocking the weapon, just stating my opinion

    I am trying to decide on a carry gun and have 99% decided to go with CZ-USA. I am not sure about 9mm or .40S&W but am not sure which gun to get. I want a barrel between 3.5 and not greater than 4″. I can handle the recoil from the .40 OK but the ammo seems slightly higher in cost (not a deal breaker). I am currently shooting a 357mag revolver but want the highter round capacity with a semi-auto. What do you all think? I am open. Thanks, JimmyD

    • Vom Brunhaus October 1, 2012, 1:11 pm

      Try the Ruger SR9 check the features comes with 2 17 round mags.

    • Ron October 1, 2012, 2:45 pm

      the .40 is a larger bullet and god forbid if you have to use it it creates a larger wound channel. I have both .40s and 9mm and have no problems with either as a defensive pistol as long as it is stocked with quality ammo made for defense, best thi g to do is go with what you feel comfortable with and are willing to practice with!

  • masterchief December 28, 2011, 11:04 am

    Just purchased a P07 .40 cal. Anyone know of a holster that it will fit in? I am contemplating purchasing the Hawk or possibly the Galco Matrix 7X. Any suggestions?

  • Korbusnik January 16, 2012, 12:57 am

    I bought the P07 Duty in .40cal 8 months ago (and built a leather holster for it) I have heard so much about it being great and reliable so naturally I was heartbroken when the gun became triggerbroken. yes, the trigger began malfunctioning ( in the form of failures, the hammer doesnt move when it fails, but it still fires some of the time). I had only fired less than a thousand rounds, and loved every minute of it. I brought it back to the armory, and now i wait… plan to inquire further tomorrow. Are others having this problem? Did they fix the problem or just fix it with the same bad parts or what? so far i have not found much on the net about the trigger problem. First thing i am going to do when i get it back(or hopefully a new one) is dry fire the thing till my fingers bleed, and fire as many rounds as i can afford. any other suggestions or thoughts? i will update when i know more…

    • Administrator January 16, 2012, 7:09 am

      No I’m sure it is just a faulty part. Never heard of another one doing that. We actually bought that test gun from them and still have it. It is an awesome gun.

  • Joseph March 7, 2012, 8:16 pm

    Well my Duty is the 9mm version and it shoots circles around my Gen4 G26, my hunting buddy is a detective and also a member of the SWAT team for that city and gave me all kinds of grief for not getting his police hook up on a Glock(I took him up on that with my Gen4, pistol 3 mags and mag loader $398 NIB) until he shot the CZ. Don’t get me wrong I didn’t convert him but he was really impressed with the accuracy and function. We put about 500+ rounds of “free” police dept. ammo through it at deer camp this season and not one hiccup.

    • Administrator March 8, 2012, 7:44 am

      We actually bought the test gun because it is such a nice firearm.

  • bhp9 October 1, 2012, 11:16 am

    Unlike the steel frame CZ75/85 series of pistols the plasticky P07 guns do not have the same outstanding accuracy level by along shot. I wish they had made the P07 just a tad smaller then it would have at least made a good close range concealed carry gun blaster. As it is now its just to big. Also plasticky pistols do not make good target guns either, as their lighter weight makes them very hard to hold steady even over sand bags. I will stick with my steel frame CZ75 for target work. I see no real use for the plasticky P07 model, not a good concealed carry blaster, and not a good target gun either.

  • bhp9 October 1, 2012, 11:23 am

    I forgot to mention that the double action pull of this P07 plasticky gun is not near as good as my original plasticky Walther p99. The P99 has an outstandingly smooth double action pull for the first shot. Alas the resale value of my plasticky P99 is only 50 bucks more than what I paid for it 13 years ago but if I would have bought a P88 or P88 compact Walther they are now selling for a whopping 1,000 dollars more than what they once sold for 13 years ago. Think about that before you buy a plasticky pistol as they have no investment value.

  • bhp9 October 1, 2012, 12:38 pm

    To Korbusnik

    Check out your hammer and sear to see what they are made of. Many gun companies are now using MIM cast parts that are very brittle and well known for early failure because of their brittleness which will not stand any pressure. Colt had so many 1911 guns returned that they then tried mixing MIM cast parts (hammer and sear) with bar stock parts to make the MIM cast parts last a little longer. Ruger has recently gone over to an MIM cast hammer in their revolvers. You can see a large indentation in the sides of the hammer which gives away the MIM cast part. Also MIM cast parts require no machining they are simply removed from the mold and slapped into the gun to save cost. Trigger pulls are often very gritty. If your gun has any MIM cast parts get ride of it. The newly resurrected Detonics company is now openly bragging that they will never use any MIM cast parts in their guns. Good for them.

  • Joel October 1, 2012, 1:16 pm

    I own three CZ’s. since my family is originally from the Czech Republic and I have family who works in the factory. I have seen testing on the CZ-07 Duty before I purchased the handgun. The performance and abusive field testing showed comariable performance to a Glock. It is hard to cock initialy and the trigger does take some getting used to, but beyound those issues the gun performs well and was accurate out of the box at 15 and 25 yards. I have put a 1000 rds through the gun with no issues. I have replaced the recoils spring at 1000 rounds. I observed no manufacturing defects indide the gun or out. I own four Glocks which I use in compition, yet I prefer to carry the CZ-07. The only issue I had was trying to get a good price from a dealer. The pricing structure from CZ- USA to the dealers does not allow the dealer a good margin and they often try to sell the gun above MSRP.

    Aw… yes the CZ P-07, after reading though the comments I have experienced almost all of the mentioned joys and pains of this pistol. First pistol was an early “A” serial number fired so well installed night sights, metal guide rod, and flushed the thing poking in my ribs they call a lanyard loop with the mag well.

    Lasted till about 2500 rounds then noticed the frame bulge issue on right side by slide release. The gun would fire sometimes in SA but would not fire in DA. Turning the gun upside down did at times reset the trigger to fire normally for one shot…makes me thing a sear/trigger issue.

    Sent it back to CZ USA they sent a brand new “B” serial numbered pistol. However they did not switch the CZ pro shop nights sights over, the metal guide rod will not fit the new styled captive plastic spring, and that lanyard loop was back should have not sent in the main spring retainer I guess.

    2nd time, CZ was nice to deal with and did pay all the shipping, CZ reinstalled the night sights on my new numbered slide matching the pistol and all was OK. Still looking into different springs, need to re-shave the lanyard. The gun shoots well for me and is a very lite weight 9mm 17rd carry piece. Reliability so far about 800rds has been flawless. Still the little details missed are troubling. On mine the frame bulge did affect function, plastic feels different more firm on “B” prefixes. Did like that darker than midnight coating that was on the “A” models…

  • bhp9 October 3, 2012, 12:09 pm

    One more thing about new model pistols just coming on the market. Gun factories in their greed to get the product to market obviously and without a shadow of a doubt do not even bother to test their guns for durability and reliability. I remember all the problems the Gock 19 had when it was first dumped on the public very long ago. A GOOD RULE OF THUMB: NEVER BUY A NEW MODEL GUN UNTIL IT HAS BEEN ON THE MARKET AT LEAST 2 YEARS. The public should not have to be the tester of new model handguns, that should be done at the factory as it was long ago. It is not being done today by any of the factories that I am aware of. All the recalls certainly prove that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    Was thinking about getting the P07 in .40SW as a carry pistol for my car. Was sold on it, but then I stumbled on a lot of these people having troubles, but CZ seems to stand by their product. Also, the author says he has had the gun with thousands of rounds through it, and it is still going strong. is this still the case?

  • Mkie January 23, 2013, 4:17 am

    Well I have one of the first models of this gun that came out, I have put well over 4000 rounds through it and I have never had a problem, 25 yards a can sit for the most part in a 1 inch group. Ive tested this gun against my cousin who’s a range expert and XD lover, he claimed that it wasn’t nearly as accurate as the xd but when we both shot side by side at our target I was much more accurate with my cz then he was with his xd. Mind you he shoots ALOT more then I do and he does competitions I don’t. My gun has the “bulge” which cz said is purely cosmetic and 1000 rounds after noticing it it has never been an issue. People need to remember the P07 is a DUTY pistol and not made for concealed carry. It has a large trigger guard space to accommodate gloves that officers wear especially in cold climates and to make it quicker to reach the trigger. Its a bit bulky and ruff grips once again made to be open carried by officers. I personally have never seen this gun misfire, jam, fail to feed , or be inaccurate in anybody’s hands. There are plenty of great guns out there and I would pick this one over glock, xds, 1911′s easily, since its just as accurate, reliable and its much more reasonably priced. As to cz customer service Ive never contacted them so I dont know. My only bad experience with it is that it came with only 1 mag, and I couldn’t find anyplace that sold extra mags for this gun,(except online, but I hate buying anything online) and sometimes the gun can be tight to pull back when field striping.
