    Thanks for all the GREAT INFORMATION you guys provide. My question is about threaded barrels, I presently own. CZ PO7 urban with a thread barrel from the Factory. My goal is to carry this firearm in the near future with a comp on it. I am to to the CZ brand, but have heard great things about them. Do you think CZ made mistake offering this combo? I carry a shiel , but the micro comps prevent me getting a good purchase on the gun. Thank for your thoughts

      Clarence, I think its great that CZ offers that package. Don’t have anything against it, just don’t know that it is worth paying extra for on an EDC gun. Not sure how the micro comps prevent you getting good purchase on the gun but if that is the case it would be worth addressing.
