I'm just starting to look into the CZ-75s and I'm used to the HK USP and the Beretta 92. Those have a decocker so you can lower the hammer with a round in the chamber. The CZ seems to be unique in that it is a DA pistol, you can carry it cocked and locked, but it has no decocker lever. Is the DA feature just a second strike capability if the round fails to fire? Or is there a safe way to lower the hammer?

Thanks in advance.

Yep, unless you get the D model, which has no safety, you manually put the hammer down. No problem to do, and it is designed that way.

yes. if your concerned about decocking, get the 75-BD. it has the "decoker" but no thumb safety.

I used to have a PCR--compact decocker. That decocks it only to the half-cock notch. Now I have a regular B compact. So if I want to carry it da/sa do I thumb down the hammer all the way or just to the half-cock notch? If the former, is there anything wrong with having it on the half-cock notch?

I have a P01 that has a decocker but prefer the manual saftey version on my 75 because the trigger seems a little nicer and I have heard it is a lot esier to take the manual saftey pistols apart to do a trigger job and the decockers are a pain.

You can carry it all the way down, or in the notch. With it in the notch the DA pull will be a bit shorter, and maybe a tad easier. I tried carry for a while with it in the notch, but the hammer bit into my side quite a bit in that position. Now I carry it all the way down.
