    I already have a 9mm M&P Shield with future trigger and sights upgrades. I am looking for another gun to start my own collection. Why? I confess, I am an addict now.

    The last two weeks, I've been 100% set on the CZ P-07 but today I've gone back to the drawing board after falling in love with the CZ P-01 Omega Convertible. Now, I am 85% set on getting that instead of the P-07. I will buy one of these on July 8th. I hope to make the new CZ (either one) my EDC. I think the all metal construction is a great item to pass on down through my lineage. I don't know if the new polymers' composition are engineered to withstand age and not become brittle after many years. I don't mind the metal's extra heft on the belt. No big deal.

    Am I making the right decision to go with the P-01 Omega over the P-07? Which one would you personally go with if you were in my situation?

    I'm all metal myself. That would be my choice. I have no reference on polymer aging.

    I have both a P-07 and a P-01. If I had to select only one it would be the P-01. Changed out the springs and the grips. Got the front sight installed, but the rear sight is being very stubborn about coming out. Mine is not the Omega but since I left the P-07 as a decocker it is still a fair comparison.[​IMG]

    I have a p07 and love it. I think it's perfectly fine. I have not owned or shot the PO1. I don't think you could go wrong with either. I think anything cz rocks. Congrats on your future PO1 purchase.

    I wouldn't mind having a p01, but I think my next cz will be some kind of sp01.

    Yesterday, I stopped by Bud's after work and they told me they didn't have the P-01 Omega in stock and that they didn't know when they would have one in. I didn't put any money down and I'm now looking elsewhere, including Bud's online shop. The only two I could find so far are on Gunbroker and one of them are asking for $661 and the other one has a cosmetic blemish and is asking for $501. I personally don't mind the blemish because I really want one of those badly.

    Another question: is the Omega trigger even an upgrade over the original trigger? Is the Cajun Gun Works trigger upgrade a lot nicer than the Omega trigger? If so, I will get the regular P-01 instead! Let me know what you guys think.

    P-01 or a Sphinx.
    Main reason being you can use 75 mags, while the P-07 uses different mags

    The Sphinx is so hot but kind of out of my price range. I could save up for that... but I want a new gun right now! LOL

    Replace the S&W Shield with a CZ-2075 Rami in .40 and and start looking for a good to great quality 1911 and don't look back.....Just make plans for the next couple future 1911's.

    Just my thoughts....Everyone have a Happy and Safe 4th and remember it isn't just a day to BBQ and drink beer.
