I’m back reviewing another CZ platform pistol, the SP-01 Tactical. This one is not my personal firearm. It belongs to my dad, and he has great taste, seeing as it was not only his first pistol purchase, but overall firearm purchase as well. In Maryland, it’s a longer process to get a pistol. We have to take a handgun qualification course and get fingerprinted before purchasing the pistol. My dad saw it worthwhile to get his Handgun Qualification License (HQL) just so he could get this pistol, which shows just how much allure the CZ SP-01 has.
The key differences between the standard SP-01 and the SP-01 ‘tactical model’ is that the SP-01 has a manual safety lever on the slide, and the Tactical model offers a de-cocker lever instead. The SP-01 comes in 9x19mm only, where the tactical SP-01 is available in 9x19mm and .40 S+W.
