CZ USA Custom Shop A01-LD 9mm 19 Round Capacity 91731
Built from scratch at CZ Custom, the A01 is the evolution of the Shadow series as Angus would have done it. The frame is the star of the show and is hammer-forged, CNC-machined and then blued. Very obvious is its massively heavy dustcover which kills both recoil and muzzle rise. With a deep beavertail, undercut triggerguard, raised 25 LPI checkering and an internal magwell, it combines classic CZ 75 ergonomics with purposedriven features ideal for competition.
To ensure that the trigger is up to snuff, both the hammer and the sear are directly pinned in the frame to solidify trigger pull consistency. DA pull weight is from 8-8.5 lbs. while SA clocks in at 3-3.5 lbs. and a short reset is standard. The trigger itself is lifted from the CZ 85 Combat.
The slide is CNCed from 4140 bar stock and features front and rear serrations and CZ Custom low-mount rear sight and fiber-optic front. Icing on the cake is a 4.925” match-grade bull barrel made from 416 stainless steel. Built for the higher capacity P-09/P-07/P-10 magazine platform, the A01-LD ships with two 19-round P-09 magazines.

I have to say that this is a really nice pistol. It fits in the hand real well. Great trigger. The heavy weight really absorbs the recoil.
Now the not so good. When I got it I found a few small scuff marks on the finish. Not what I would expect from a CZ Custom that costs as much as this does. The pin that releases the slide for field strip is really difficult to remove. I have to use a wood block to hammer it out.
