    I am considering a used CZ P-07 .40 that Buds has for $370. How does the P-07 compare to the rest of the CZ lineup that I have heard so much about on the forum? I am starting to like a good DA/SA trigger and the fact the P-07 is a polymer gun is a plus for me as it will be carried hunting in some rough cutovers/swamps.

    I have the 9mm version, but Ill still respond with my experience. The P07 is an amazing pistol. When I got mine I considered it the "glock 19 killer". Its roughly the same size, capacity, but better ergos and aesthetics (in my opinion). It also has a 16 round capacity over the standard 15.

    I think that price is about in line one you factor in tax/transfer/shipping. I got mine for around $400 and consider it a fabulous price for the amount of pistol you get.

    I can highly recommend the p-07.

    And I prefer Viking Revolution Cedar and Pine to the Grave Beflre Shave.

    It is my opinion that the P07/09/10 are not the best of what CZ has to offer.
    It is my opinion that particular title goes to the various SP01 models for a duty sized gun and the P01 for a compact sized gun.

    That said, the P07 is indeed a good gun. I had one that was uber reliable...it fired 3500 rounds. With. Zero. Malfunctions. The gun was just above average out of tbe box. Not bad at all, just nothing that wowed me. But just like every other gun, the trigger and internals smoothed up over time and they became pretty nice. I have no beefs with any of the mechanicals of the gun. They are solid.
    Except for the stock sights. They suck and are a weak point of CZs in general.

    Everything below is subjective, so take it with a grain of salt:
    For me, it was the ergos of the gun and its polymer that did it in. I did not like the feel of the polymer frame. Maybe it was too slick in places (I did have occasional issues with sweaty hands and gripping) or maybe it just didnt feel substantial enough. It just felt really odd in my hand.
    The shape of the grip is kind of blocky. Not overly so like a Glock, but more like a FN to me. I could fit my hand around it, but I couldnt operate the decocker without breaking my grip.
    I eventually sold it and have not regretted it.

    If you are seriously
    I personally would prefer you start with a cup full of SP01 lol.
    However with your stated philosophy of use
    the P07 should serve you well if the ergos and polymer feel good in your hand.

    I should also add that the SP01 Phantom is less than 2 oz heavier than the P07, full size, polymer, and comes with 18 rnd mags (that really hold 19). It might be better suited for your use than the P07.

    Good luck and enjoy :)

    The metal CZs are all in a different league than any polymer firearm. But amongst the polymers, the CZs still stand very strong.

    And the SP-01 is a bigger, heavier gun that most people would never carry. It is likely only a nightstand, target or competion gun. A P-07 is more versatile. As usual it comes down to what you will use the gun for. A backup hunting and hiking gun is a good spot for a P-07. Beat it up, get it dirty and it will still treat you well.
