SP-01 ... decocker or not?
Just a quick question where I may be able to get some objective information. I'm wanting to get the CZ SP-01, however I'm not sure whether to get the standard, or decocking version (which is the tactical). Apart from the obvious differences, what are the pros/cons of these?
I'm not looking to do competition matches or that, just wanting something to take to the range and plink with. It is not going to be a bedside piece, as I have a Springfield .45 for that.
Auto decock vs Manual decock
If you manually decock, the trigger must be pulled while easing the hammer forward. This would be the same as decocking a revolver . Just don't let it slip. Depending on how many times you are manually decocking , the chances of a mishap might increase.
Does this position (manual decock ) allow you to safely carry the weapon with a round in the chamber. I assume it would act just like a revolver. Anyone know for sure. Also would the hammer safety pin still be active in case the gun dropped.
I am wondering if this is really a big deal? If you are at the firing range, what would be the big difference between decocking prior to shooting vs cocked and lock with safety on. Then turning safety off and shooting.
Seems the main difference will be in the defensive area where a faster trigger pull (Cocked & Locked) might be the difference whether good or bad.
Any suggestions on how to make this dsecision?
