Paul is a small business owner in Seattle, a city currently going through some rather negative growth and spikes in crime. He carries a CZ P-01 Omega, a double-stack 9mm CZ reports as having passed the Army MRBF – Mean Rounds Between Failure – drill. CZ says the Omega has a .05% failure rate (7 failures per 15,000 rounds). The Omega has an MRBF of 2142.
Is your carry gun this reliable?
Anybody know the MRBF of a LC9? Only have about 200 rds so far. Nice to have the stats on the CZ. Nice comfortable loadout.
I have the CZ-75D PCR, which is the non-Omega, non-rail version of this that is Czechian police issue. I have close to 2,500 rounds through mine and it has only failed to feed once because I didn’t have the magazine fully inserted. I’ve fed it a mix of 115gr ball, 124gr ball and 124gr Federal HSTs.
I don’t know how many rounds I’ve put through my Springfield XDm compact, but it has to be in the 2,000+ range by now.
The only failure has been a stovepipe failure to eject, which happened within the first 150 rounds when my super-petite sister-in-law was shooting it. Well, there have been a couple/three magazine-related incidents…but those were me either failing to seat the magazine or fumble-fingering the mag release button.
So I can safely say that my carry gun is far more reliable than I am.
I’d like to get my hands on a CZ one of these days. They seem like awesome guns.
omega trigger sa is nice out of the box. i like the old trigger’s da better. and they all smooth out with use.
they are both easy to vary via aftermarket.
