At the 2010 SHOT Show, CZ showed a concept pistol that the company may begin selling later this year. The pistol is a tactical version of the P-07 Duty pistol that is, as yet, not named. (Ed. note: Scroll down to the update for more information on this pistol.)
The pistol is chambered in 9mm, and will feature a threaded barrel for the addition of a sound suppressor. Suppressed models will have elevated sights. The new P-07 has a tan polymer frame, but other colors (OD, foliage green, flat dark earth, scorched earth, etc.) may be offered.
Right now, CZ anticipates the pistol would be available for widespread distribution in 2011. However, the CZ rep I spoke with said certain dealers might receive a few of these guns in 2010 in a limited distribution effort. I would expect a limited distribution would be done to “test the waters.”
Update: This precise gun was never introduced by CZ. Too bad, as I found that the gun had a great combination of features and cosmetic attractiveness that I believe would have made it a very good seller for the company. However, variations of the gun were rolled out – just not this specific collection of features on a single P-07 Duty pistol.
The fiber optic sights were very bright on the sample P-07 Tactical that was at the SHOT Show. The almost literally jumped out at you. I personally would prefer a fiber optic front with a plain black rear sight. That helps eliminate any visual confusion in an actual tactical situation.
The pistol feels good in the hand and just looks good. I have reviewed the P-07, and found it to be a reliable pistol. I did not like the trigger reach, but that is a subjective thing. If that reach is ok with you, the P-07 is an awesome pistol.
