Comments: The CZ 75 P-07 is made in Taiwan for ASG and carries trademarks licensed from CZ. The gun is a very close replica of the CZ firearm, right down to the polymer frame and metal slide. The CZ 75 P-07 has the same internal mechanism as its ASG stablemate, the STI Duty One. The fit and finish of the CZ 75 P-07 are generally very good with seams being hidden and smoothed. Most of the controls function just as they do on the firearm, the only exception being the thumb safety on the right side, which is molded into the frame. The CZ 75 P-07 operates by blowback and the slide locks back after the last shot. The blowback action cocks the gun for the next shot but does not load a BB into the chamber (BBs are loaded during the trigger pull). The blowback action on the gun is pretty strong and does not seem to steal too much gas as the gun gets more than 80 good shots from each CO2 cylinder. The average muzzle velocity is pretty good for a blowback operated CO2 pistol clocking in at 365 fps. While this is a decent figure, it is far below the 426 fps advertised for the gun by ASG. Shot-to-shot variation in muzzle velocity was fair (std. dev. = 11). The single-action trigger on the CZ 75 P-07 has a long first stage (2.2 lb) and a short second stage (4 lb) that is a little crunchy (you can feel the BB being loaded as the trigger is pulled). The owner's manual contains a warning about how to pull the trigger. It recommends a swift pull with no hesitation in order to prevent two BBs being loaded at once. This problem was confirmed during testing. The gun also had a tendency to load the last two BBs in the magazine at the same time. The sights present a good picture for action shooting. The front sight is fixed but the rear sight can be adjusted for windage. During testing, the front sight came off the gun after about 30 shots. A little Super Glue firmly reattached it to the slide and the problem did not recur.

The magazine for the CZ 75 P-07 has a locking position for the spring follower. After locking the follower down, BBs are loaded through the opening at the top of the magazine from the side labeled ".177". To prevent BBs from accidentally coming out the other side, place a finger over the opening on the side opposite the ".177" label. When the magazine is full, cover both openings at the top of the magazine with your fingers and then release the follower. (If you do not cover the holes at the top of the magazine, BBs will fly out of the magazine when the follower is released). To load a CO
2 cylinder into the grip of the CZ 75 P-07, remove the backstrap by pressing in on the button at the bottom of the backstrap (it looks like a lanyard loop). To access and turn the piercing screw for the CO2 cylinder, remove the magazine and the backstrap. The accuracy of the CZ 75 P-07 varies considerably with the brand of BBs used. Excellent groups were obtained using Daisy Avanti BBs (0.38") and good groups were produced by Crosman Copperhead BBs (0.60"). However, both Daisy Precision Max BBs and RWS Match BBs produced poor results (1.14" and 1.27" respectively). The CZ 75 P-07 is a fun plinker but the price is pretty high for the level of performance provided.

Performance: Measurements were made on 12/08/2011 at a temperature of 70 F and 5000' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 380 fps, the lowest was 341 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 365 fps, s = 11). The average velocity was far below the advertised value of 426 fps and the shot-to-shot consistency was pretty broad. A five-shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.38".

Four different brands of BBs were tested with the CZ 75 P-07. The targets below show the results for firing five-shot groups from 15' using a bench and open sights with Crosman Copperhead BBs (0.60"), Daisy Avanti BBs (0.38"), Daisy Precision Max BBs (1.14"), and RWS Match Grade BBs (1.27"). Daisy Avanti BBs produced the best results. All measurements are center-to-center.


 


 
Right Profile: The safety lever on the right side of the CZ 75 P-07 is molded into the frame and is therefore nonfunctional.

 
Front View: The slide lock lever, magazine release, and thumb safety on the left side of the frame all function in the same manner as their counterparts on the CZ firearm. Pushing the safety lever up engages the safety and pushing it down disengages the safety. There is no de-cocking mechanism on the gun other than using your thumb to slowly lower the hammer as the trigger is pulled.


 
Left Profile 2: The front sight is fixed but the rear sight can be adjusted for windage by nudging it left or right in its dovetail slot.


 



 
Right Side Markings: The trademarks on the CZ 75 P-07 are officially licensed by ASG from CZ.

Loading BBs: The CZ 75 P-07 uses a removable 20-shot magazine. The spring-loaded follower in the magazine has a locking position for loading. When loading BBs, place a finger over the back of the loading port to keep BBs from falling out. When releasing the follower, place fingers over both sides of the loading port to prevent BBs from being forced out of the magazine. Be sure to release the follower after loading BBs.

         

The internal loading mechanism of the CZ 75 P-07 allows more than one BB at a time to be loaded if the trigger is not operated properly. The owner's manual contains the following warning about this potential problem.



 


 
Loading CO2: The CO2 cylinder is stored in the grip. The backstrap comes off by pressing the button at the bottom of the backstrap (the button looks like a lanyard loop). When the magazine in inserted, it completely covers the CO2 piercing screw giving the gun a more realistic appearance.
