Just took delivery of a CZ75 SP01. Won't get to the range for a couple of days. In the meantime, here's the question:

The tested trigger pull on the included data sheet shows 3 1/2 lb pull for SA. That feels about right, but I haven't tested it yet.

After an expected amount of take-up, the trigger has significant creep before the hammer drops. More than I expected and more than any of my 1911s. Not a showstopper, but I'm new to the breed and would like to know that what I'm experiencing is normal.

Comments would be appreciated.

Thx.

If you look at the hammer while the trigger creeps you will notice the hammer will rock backwards during the trigger pull. This is called positive camber. It is the relationship with the sear and hammer notch. No amount of stoning will remedy this, it is designed that way. The way to fix this issue and get the crisp trigger break you are looking for is to change the hammer to one of the aftermarket versions. CZ Custom offers these in a variety of shapes and also Cajun Gun works offers a Race hammer that gives a superb clean crisp, no creep trigger break. A wise man once said "The best tool to use on a stock CZ hammer is a credit card".
If you only want to exchange parts to acheive a great trigger get one of the hammers, a reduced trigger return spring with floating trigger pin, an extended firing pin with reduced return spring and drop in a 13 lb main spring. This will give you a light managable double action and a wonderful light single action with a minimum of work. All available from www.cajungunworks.com

Many thanks! Good to know that what I have is what the mothership intended and not an anomaly
Will get some experience with it before deciding which path to take.

Meanwhile, I have a new Sig P210A that I'm trying to get used to.

Thanks again. Safe shooting.

Got to the range today and got off 50 rds--no issues except the occasional brass hitting me in the forehead. The brass may have been bouncing off the glass. Gotta get a spotter to determine whether that's happening.

Also tried some after-market mags (MecGar) which also ran just fine.
Thanks again to SP01Shadow for the insight on the trigger.

I would bet the brass is bouncing off of something. Most CZ's have a rather brisk ejection to the rear and right. MecGar makes CZ's factory magazines so very good choice.

Confirmed today with a spotter that ejection is properly straight to the right and off the glass. No reward component at all.

Took a hot one off the glass and down my shirt collar. Didn't think I could still move that fast.
