POTD: Star Wars Themed CZ 75 SP-01

IMG_8569-001

I am not much of a Science-Fiction fan, but I love the look of this custom Star Wars-themed CZ 75 SP-01 commissioned by long time gun blogger Linoge, who blogs at Walls of the City. He hinted this might cause some contention in the comments. I think he might be right, but personally I believe in diversity and have always loved guns of all colors 🙂 Linoge wrote …

Started with a CZ 75 SP-01, handed it over to Cajun Gun Works for their “CGW Pro Package”, and then over to Bunker Arms for the Star Wars-specific paint job.

At first I was horrified by the faux holster wear, assuming it has been sandpapered, but on closer inspection it looks like paint has been used to give it that look.

    ancient weapons and a hokey religion are no match for a good blaster at your side kid.

  • PeterK

    AWEsome. 😀 Painting that wear on is not uncommon methinks.

  • Looks great!

  • BattleshipGrey

    That’s funny, I looked at the picture before reading the title and thought it had a Star Wars-esk look to it. Interesting how a set of films can create a recognizable style. Not just bright colors, but it’s the well worn look that takes it.

    How do you like the CGW trigger job?

    • Honestly, it’s one of the better handgun triggers I’ve had the chance to use. Now, that’s not saying a great deal in my particular case, but they got the SA down to 3lbs and the DA down to 7lbs, with a very crisp break and very clear reset point.

  • Nicks87

    Nice! I like it. Totally looks like it could have been picked up off of a dead mandelorian.

  • USMC03Vet

    The yellow ruins it. Should get the yellow repainted to mimic worn rust.

    • iksnilol

      I don’t know, it adds some nice contrast. Only thing that would make it better (IMO) is if the grips matched the slide better. The grips are dark red while the slide is brighter. Makes it a bit weird IMO.

  • SirOliverHumperdink

    Cool. Add an orange tip at the barrel and you have a gun you can carry in plain sight (almost) anywhere.

  • JWaits85

    Is that just a vz cherry grip?

    • It is. Not sold on those vs. the black rubber/plastic grips that came with it yet.

      • thedonn007

        I really like the factory rubber grips on my SP-01 and P-01. I see no need to ever change them. That is, other than looks.

  • echelon

    Looks like the gun has a nice patina straight outta the Tattoine cantina…

  • I can confirm that the age/wear was painted on, rather than abraded. The good news is that as the cerakote *actually* wears, no one will really notice or care ;).

    • iksnilol

      I really like the worn look (shiny guns are more attractive), is there any way to cerakote or duracoat it to look rusty?

      • Honestly, I haven’t the foggiest, but I would guess so.

  • Billiam

    Next up is a Mauser C96 with Han Solo’s funky compensator.

    • noob

      how do i noscope?

  • jamezb

    Sweet.

  • ElJuego1977

    Shut up and take my money! Cz-75 and Star Wars, give me Chewie’s Bowcaster and I am set!

  • Stan Darsh

    Was there a blaster that looked like this in the second trilogy? It sure doesn’t resemble anything i can remember from the original films.

    • MrEllis

      New films maybe? I’m not gonna say I’m a nerd, but I will prove I am… I think Obi-Wan’s spaceship was maroon with dayglow yellow accents.

      • DIR911911 .

        really? have u never heard of the great Boba Fett?

        • MrEllis

          Wasn’t he maroon and green? This doesn’t really make me think Boba Fett. Could be his intent but it seems like it would have that drab olive color more so?

          • MrEllis

            COuld be chance but that yellow is a horrible color, I couldn’t imagine it being by accident.

    • Think less blaster and more body armor.

  • MrEllis

    Pew pew pew!

  • Adam James Pugh

    I like the distressed look – variety is the spice of life after all. I’m struggling to see the Star Wars theme however. Is it that the cherry red is reminiscent of the Rebel Alliance logo? Am I being dense?

    • Boba Fett.

      • Adam James Pugh

        Okeydokey, I can see what you’re saying. Perhaps the frame is actually more green than it appears in the images? I saw it as being grey on first glance.

        • Yeah, the green is definitely on the “D” side of “OD Green”, but so was the armor, so it works out :).

  • DIR911911 .

    this would be a beautiful gun in robar np3

  • Gunbye

    As a CZ fan I say “Good on ya!” Rat Rods are awesome, chabby chic is in when it comes to home decoration, if a gun owner thinks it looks cool and doesn’t make the weapon unsafe, I say “when can I see the pulse rifle made from the G36?”

  • Zebra Dun

    “Painted on holster wear?” BRILLIENT!

  • Phillip Cooper

    So how is this at all Star Wars themed?

    • I take it you’ve not heard of Boba Fett?

  • ghost

    Painted guns shoot gooder.

  • CZfan

    I love the CZ 75 too I other than the 1911 I cant think of a better all steel Semi Auto. I have a early import CZ 85 and that pistol is fantastic.

    That being said I think this is pretty cool. I am not a star wars fan by any means, the old movies are great sure, but I havnt seen them in years.
