CZ 75 SP-01 Tactical, .40 S&W;
CZ-USA is pleased to announce the availability of the CZ75 SP-01 Tactical (decocker) variant of the SP-01 in .40 S&W.;
The CZ 75 SP-01 is the first full size handgun (4.72” bbl) from CZ to feature the improved manufacturing technology and ergonomics of the NATO approved CZ 75 Compact P-01 model. Featuring an integral 1913 accessory rail on the dust cover, rubber grip panels, and CZ’s corrosion resistant black polycoat finish, the SP-01 is the newest model to join the family of pistols based on the CZ 75 (SA/DA) platform. Borrowing from the improved grip geometry of the CZ 75 Compact P-01, the SP-01 utilizes an extended beavertail to protect shooter’s strong hand as well as allowing for a deeper and more secure grip. The new grip geometry with checkering in key areas on the front and back straps combined with the redistribution of mass provided by the accessory rail noticeably decreases the perceived recoil from previous models and allows for more rapid target acquisition and transitions. The magazine well of the SP-01 is beveled internally to accommodate faster reloads from the SP-01’s 12 round .40 S&W; magazines.
Safety elements include a firing pin block and an an ambidextrous decocker, and comes standard with 3 dot tritium night sights.
The SP-01 was designed as a military and law enforcement duty sidearm. The new model is currently in use by security forces fighting the war on terrorism. Thanks to its exceptional accuracy and superior handling characteristics, the CZ 75 SP-01 has also found supporters in the field of sport and target shooting. It’s list of users on the competition circuit include World Champions Adam Tyc, Matt Mink and Angus Hobdell
