CZ’s new P-09 Duty pistol

CZ P-09 Duty

Succeeding the P-07 Duty pistol is the new P-09 Duty which is a 19+1 9mm (or 16+1 .40 cal) handgun. It has a DA/SA trigger, and while shipped with decockers installed, you can do a conversion to a manual safety with supplied parts and instructions. The P-09 Duty has interchangeable backstraps along with an integrated 1913 rail.

    cool

    I have a P07, and it’s probably my favorite handgun. I think a bigger version would be a more of a detriment than a plus since the handling characteristics and shootability are already quite good.

    Tough. choice for me since I already have a CZ SP-01. Should I get a P-09 or the polymer version of the SP-01. The P-09 does not take CZ 75 mags.

    Ugly trigger guard. I think any new full sized pistol need a top rail for optics. The future for handgun sights.
    Waiting for a EOTECH for pistols

      I’ve gotta agree on the ugly trigger guard, but I’m not so sure about pistol optics. I don’t have any experience with the tiny red dots, but I’ve heard reports that although they’re great for competition (where your torso is basically a locked turret), they’re actually not so great for self defense- apparently it’s more difficult to acquire the dot quickly in suboptimal shooting positions/stressful situations than it is to get the regular 3-dot. I’d be all for standardization of rear-sight mounted lasers (if they ever get mainstream).

      We do have an optic for duty size guns that fits into the rear sight dovetail. I see them in competition for the most part

    P-01 for me. That is if I ever upgrade from the CZ-83…

    I’ve handled a P-07 and I liked it, but not as much as a P-01 or Compact or even a Canik 55 copy.
    I’ll have to check this out though. That backstrap looks more comfy than the P-06.

    Those new proportions really flesh out the futuristic/utilitarian beauty of the P-07. I like the shape of the grip and the upward curve at the front of the slide.

    It’s very hard to go wrong with any model of CZ pistol. Well-balanced, beautiful fit and finish, accurate, practical, completely reliable and very user and maintenance-friendly — it usually ends up being a matter of picking the one that feels “just right” for the intended user and his / her purposes.

    quiero una y tengo la plata pero a mi pais tarda un año en llegar que puedo hacer para tenerla antes . cz podria hacer algo por mi

    Succeeding or in addition to? I didn’t here that the P-07 was being discontinued. There’s room for both in the market in my opinion. I love CZ’s: They have some of the best ergos in the industry, are typically very accurate, and the Omega trigger is very good for an out-of-the-box factory trigger.
