  7. CZ Shadow 1 converted to Single Action - HELP!!!

    To Close this issue, I think I found the solution to my own problems after converting my CZ Shadow 1 to SAO with the replacement of Trigger, Hammer and strut: Problems: 1. Inconsistent in resetting the trigger 2. The hammer was falling in half cock when pulling the trigger 3. The hammer was not falling at all and the sear wasn't moving at all Solutions: 1. adjust the pre-travel and front of the straight aluminum trigger (new) 2. Make sure the the lift spring of trigger bar has enough tension to push it upward to touch the sear spring notch. Thank you for all the prof comments that brought to the solution of the issues. I ran 300 rounds without a single failure. Problems SOLVED.

  9. CZ Shadow 1 converted to Single Action - HELP!!!

    Rnlinebacker, No, i changed the whole original hammer with disconnector and strut with a new set of cz competition hammer with a strut, no disconnector to make it single action only
  10. CZ Shadow 1 converted to Single Action - HELP!!!

    Last night I completely disassebled the pistol, clean and check all the springs in the trigger group. I found that the trigger bar spring dont have much tension during the disassembly. The end of the trigger bar needs to engage the sear to move it, if no or less tension from the lifter spring, the trigger bar might miss the lever of the sear causing stalling of the hammer. I removed it and bend a bit upward on both sides. After cleaning and re-assembly, I tried to redo the problems by manually racking the slide: RESULTS: 1. It is now resetting with a noticeable click 2. the hammer is now falling everytime, no half cock during the action of pressing the trigger 3. the trigger pull weight increased from 2.25 lbs to 2.75 lbs I am not yet test it in the range but I will update this post. I believe this issue will help all newbies in CZ pistols.
  11. Hi Memphismechanic, thank you for the recommendation, I did copy and paste this issue under CZ forum Thanks.
  12. Friends, Finally I was able to convert my CZ Shadow 1 from double action to single action only. I changed the following to convert it to single action: 1. I bought a set of CZ Competition Hammer and CZ Strut 2. New CZ TRS and CZ Trigger pin 3. Dlask straight trigger aluminum I keep the original hammer with strut and DISCONNECTOR, original trigger pin, original TRS, original trigger. MY PROBLEMs: 1. very inconsistent, sometimes not resetting 2. when shooting, it goes to half cock and not hitting the firing pin 3. after firing a couple of rounds, the hammer will stop and will not fall to the firing pin, its just stop even though you are pressing the trigger (the trigger is moving and in my observation at the back side in the hammer area, the sear is not moving causing the hammer to stall and not firing) Friends, I need your opinion, experience and guidance. I don't want to buy parts that are not needed or this should just some adjustments. PLEASE HELP ME. See the pictures:
