CZ-USA 01199 CZ P-01 10+1 9mm 3.8"
by Les S Date Added: Monday 13 February, 2012
I am very unhappy about writing a negative review, but there is an issue I think should be known. After I bought a P-01 I right away took it out to shoot it. After 5 rounds my trigger finger was burning, after 10 rounds, it was numb, and by 15 rounds by finger was aching so much I wished there were no more rounds left in the magazine. I thought maybe dry firing the pistol would help somehow, so over the next few days I dried fired it about 2000 times. While it did smooth the trigger pull a bit, when I shot it again, the same intense pain resulted in my trigger finger after about 10 rounds.

I did a little research to find quite a few complaints online about "trigger slap," meaning the trigger violently recoils and strikes the trigger finger. One person suggested holding the trigger down fully through the firing cycle as a possible solution. So I again shot the pistol making sure to keep the trigger depressed between shots, but at 10 rounds I could no longer stand the pain. I have several pistols, and shoot regularly, so I am familiar with how a trigger should function.

I wrote CZ-USA describing the problem, and they answered "'Trigger Slap' is something that is not experienced by everyone and most the time we only hear about it on sub-compacts. We have had a couple cases with P-01’s and we inspected them and everything was functioning like normal and we shot it with no problems. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do under warranty try different finger placement on the trigger, in some cases this can make a difference."

I answered "I have tried every finger position known to God and man, including the proper use of the index finger pad. The 'slap' is downright violent, actually bruising my finger (at least I think it did since it ached for days after shooting)." CZ again replied there was nothing they could do.

CZ has a warranty, but rather than honor it, this problem is being pushed off on user error or user preference or possibly some kind of imagined problem that doesn't exist. In any case, the message is, CZ doesn't care. So this negative review is a meant to be a caution to those who get stuck with the trigger slap problem . . . CZ won't fix it.
