ASG CZ75 P07 Duty Review

CZ75 P-07 Duty CO2 GBB Pistol - Reviewed by Yosser

For some reason, which I can’t fully explain, I must confess to having a slightly less than positive perception of CO2 powered GBB pistols, especially considering some of the negative comments gleaned from various forums across the interwebs! Would this CO2 powered offering from ASG re-enforce pre-conceived ideas?

On to the review then
Well packaged and compact the box is clearly marked with admittedly an unremarkable picture of the pistol, along with various teasers of promises held within, which did grab my attention. Now having been used to conventional GBB P226’s and M9’s etc I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I opened the box up for the first time with a CO2 powered model.

Inside the box was the CZ75 P-07 Duty in full glory packaged lovingly in a protective layer of bubble wrap, a couple of instruction booklets and tucked away a small bag of BB’s and a small adjustment tool (for hop-up adjustment). The Instruction leaflet was useful for advising on how to insert CO2 bulbs however the booklet looked pretty generic and didn’t tell me things I wanted to know like how to field strip, maintain, or care for my newly acquired object of desire. (To remove the top slide, you must first remove the rear sight to reveal two screws that need removing first, not exactly a field strip job!).

First Impression
Like most airsofters I just wanted to get to grips with this pistol so it was immediately wretched from its cardboard packaging and soon being hefted, drawn and pointed. Point and fire with this pistol just felt so right; they have certainly got the ergonomics spot on with this model. This pistol was seriously starting to impress! Really nice weight for what is a compact pistol. The trades are nicely engraved on LHS slide with full CZ logo and a removable sticker advising ‘Max 1.5 Joules’ on the lower receiver. All the important controls for the pistol are also on the LHS including magazine release, safety and slide release.

The pistol has a barely visible seam line from the trigger guard along the accessory rail, but this shouldn’t be any problem really. The RHS of the pistol carries the ASG logo and ‘Cal. 6mm BB’ along with a unique serial number for each pistol with the upper slide and lower receiver each carrying a stamped number so you’ll always know which one is yours. The safety on this side of the receiver is non-functioning.

Over All
The grip is nicely textured, and is very comfortable to hold, it just feels right in the hand with the beaver tail sitting just nicely to help prevent ‘slide bite’. The slide is nicely marked as already stated and has a nice action when cocking the weapon. It is important to point out that this pistol does not have a double action to it and will require cocking to load before firing the first round. The leaflet enclosed with the pistol clearly advises users to firmly pull the trigger to help prevent misfires and the possibility of multiple rounds being fired by incomplete trigger pulls.

Now unlike some other CO2 powered pistols this one doesn’t hold its 12g bulb within its magazine. Instead it’s held within the pistol grip, separate from the magazine, the resultant magazine therefore is a thin stick like affair. Useful if you want to carry a few of them. The magazine holds 16 BB’s.

Firing this pistol on the range soon brought a broad smile to my face. The clean crisp crack of the blowback was a delight. The kick felt harder than some normal GBB’s I have fired and the CZ75 certainly sounded sweet as it fired. Sighting was made easy due to the white marked fore & rear sights. The foresight did fly off during testing, so make sure yours is well glued into place! Cleaning and lubing the barrel helped improve performance but this should be a standard procedure when ‘breaking in’ a new AEG or pistol.

Yosser says: Overall I was impressed with this pistol and really fell in love with its small compact form and good looks. If you fancy something different and want to stand out from the normal ‘western’ based loadouts of M9’s, USP’s and M9’s than you could do worse than go for this great offering from Action Sports Games CZ75 P-07 Duty and at approx £99 in the UK a great price for a quality CO2 pistol that's cheap to run (approx 9 to 10 magazines from one 12oz CO2 bulb).

    Nice review Yosser, and yup loving the foresight flying off!

    On a side note it may be worth mentioning that some sites don't allow Co2 pistols, perhaps down to the likes of the ones that get over 500 fps etc with built in adjusters.

    think ill still buy a co2 pistol in the future for sites that don't mind seeing as there reasonably priced

    Lots of people need re-educating regarding CO2 pistols. These newer lower powered ones are ideal for airsoft I think. Deffo worth a look at and the price is great.

    This is cool for me. I hate GBB and use an AEP - but a CO2 seems to split the difference between realism and 'less hassle' as far as I'm concerned.

    Bit peeved about it not being double action, but hay-ho. ANyone know when and where this might be available in the UK?

    hey mind creating a video in which where you show how to disassemble this pistol? There are currently none on youtube and this exact model I bought a few months ago just died on me. I would love to figure out how to disassemble and fix it.

    I bought one this month but after 15 days the slider developed a crack in front.On firing the front portion of the slider thrown out with spring.
    Since I bought it from hongkong the warranty is not valid in my country beside no gunsmith knows how to replace the slider.I got the two tone gun and imported the slider but don't know how to do it.Any help please?

    check your local ASG dealer - if your in the UK I would give JD Airsoft a call they may have to special order it but they should be able to get you one in i think.
