I have a West German P226 and a CZ P01, and while I prefer the CZ, I still love the Sig. Better trigger and while it has more recoil it's still awesome to shoot.92 all day long. I install D spring, steel trigger and G conversion kit. nothing better out there. any variant you like. LTT, M9A1, whatever. they're all more similar than different. the biggest difference is holster compatibility. a good example is the 92A1 which is probably my favorite variant except it doesn't share holsters with the other 92's. if the budget allows go for a wilson combat 92G or the LTT elite 92G. i just picked up a 92X centurion and am digging it although the OEM grip panels are too aggressive for AIWB with my gut, so I've gone back to the 92G.
sig P series are wonderful pistols so long as you never shoot them alongside a beretta 92 or CZ 75. I find the P220 to be the least awkward of the sigs probably due to the more forward grip angle of the P220. the CZ 75 full size are great but until CZ builds an alloy frame, something like a P-01 in full size, I find them annoyingly heavy for carry. for some reason I have no issue carrying a 32 oz pistol but once it hits around 38+ oz I start to notice it. the USP/P2000/P30 and PX4 are also winners for me but they haven't done anything better than my 92.
the omega trigger system is considerably simpler design than the original 75. I own both an SP-01 tactical (ie decocker) and a 75 omega in BD (decocker) configuration so have been able to do some comparisons. the omega's DA is nowhere near as smooth although with more rounds it is improving. overall I prefer the older trigger system's feel. while i've never used CGW upgrade parts my understanding is the omega is much less supported by them. further the shape of the triggers are distinct, with the omega being more straight and older style being very hooked which is also my preference.
While I didn't have "too much of an issue" gunsmithing on my MK4 (trigger and all that Tandemkross stuff) I feel as though messing too much with the internals on this firearm might get me in some trouble.if round count is high would probably replace the trigger return spring and firing pin spring. with dry fire the firing pin retaining pin gets bent. if you're driving it out would examine closely and if warped replace it. I am not a CZ expert and am much more confortable with beretta 92 platform but it seems the CZ pro's do have to stay on top of these pistols.
These things are on my list for the winter.if round count is high would probably replace the trigger return spring and firing pin spring. with dry fire the firing pin retaining pin gets bent. if you're driving it out would examine closely and if warped replace it.
