    cz 75 long slide

    Has anyone built one using a TS slide and either 75 SA or Shadow frame or an SP-01 Shadow frame? How much fitting/machining is required ? How do you like the results? Would you do it again? I have begun to think about it.
  2. Thanks, Rowdy. Always appreciate your opinion.
  3. Does anyone have one? If so, how do you like it? At $90 I'd like a little feedback before ordering one. Thanks.
  4. Here is the deal. It is good that the P-10 C is easy to take apart and put back together because I have made the round trip several times. With some egg on my face I confess it was the slide stop spring. It is finicky. Evidently, on my first disassembly and reassembly I inadvertently bent the leg of the spring enough that it took some tension off the slide stop. The leg of the spring must bear on the nub protruding from the bottom of the slide stop bar. If not enough tension, the slide locks back on an empty magwell. Too much tension and the slide will not rack at all. And, the spring leg must bear on the nub while the loop of the spring remains in its relieved area.
  5. If this doesn't identify an error. I will take it apart again and take pictures of the trigger bar and slide stop out of the gun.
  6. Here are pictures. Hopefully, the spring location shows up.
  7. I took it apart again thinking that I would find the slide stop spring sitting out of its indented location. It was not. I took the slide stop along with the trigger and trigger bar and assembly out and reinstalled. Nothing changed. The slide locks back on an empty magwell. It will not slingshot. I still have to pull back on the slide and press down on the slide stop to release the slide to battery. When taking the slide off it gets stuck after 1 inch of travel. I must press down on the slide stop so the slide will release and travel off the end of the frame.
  8. Thank you. That is verification of the only thing that I can think of. I had a little trouble getting it to fit right and it may have slipped when I pressed that piece back into the frame.
  9. I switched out the trigger on my P-10 c for a CGW short reset trigger. Everything went back to together fine, I thought. The pin holes easily lined up. I didn't have to force anything together. But I've got some kind of gremlin in my slide stop. The slide locks back without a magazine in the magwell. It will not release by slingshotting the slide. It will only release by bearing down on the slide stop. When I try to take the slide off the frame, the slide gets stuck after traveling about one inch. It will only release forward after I press on the slide stop. The slide stop is sitting too high, it would seem. What do you think I did? Before I take it apart again I'd like to know what to look for. Thanks.

    My P10C mods

    Nothing get ones attention faster than a double or an unintended discharge. What do you think caused it?
  11. Rjracing, Thanks for the reference.

    My P10C mods

    Rowdy, What height Dawson front sight did you use with the Shadow rear? Happy with POA/POI?
  13. Thank you for the clarification.
  14. The Spring Edition of IDPA's Tactical Journal extolls the virtues of the Sig P320 X5 and promotes it as the "new contender for king of Enhanced Service Pistol." The story includes a picture of the X5's 5 inch "bull barrel." The Sig website promotes the "bull barrel" as being heavy and reducing felt recoil. IDPA rule 8.1.8 C disallows heavy and/or conical barrels unless otherwise allowed in certain divisions. ESP allows them only if they are no longer than 4.25 inches. How, under current rules, is an X5 with a heavy 5 inch bull barrel legal? What am I missing?
  15. I finally got around to changing out my oem sear spring for a Tanfoglio sear spring. My results were right at a 4 oz increase. The Tanfoglio sear spring is 4 coils vs 3 coils for the CZ and it is stiff. I could not push it into place with the sear nested in the sear cage. I had to make a slave pin, mount the spring in the sear outside the sear change and then bend the leading edge of the spring vertical enough to slip the sear cage over the top of the sear. But it is installed and I like the way it feels. Only dry fired, so far, but will be going to the range soon. Noticeably stiffer when cocking the hammer.
  16. I ordered in Tanfoglio sear and trigger return springs from Ben Stoeger. I replaced my CZC extra power trigger return spring with the Tanfoglio trigger return spring and could tell little, if any, difference. Obviously, had I replaced a CGW light trigger return spring with the Tanfoglio spring my trigger pull weight would have gone up. If you have a CZC extra power TRS, there is no need to change if you are looking to increase your pull. I could bend the spring arms and probably increase the weight a little more. Once I change the sear spring, I will determine if the TRS needs bending. I will report back with sear spring results. It may be a few days.
  17. I have a flat faced trigger. If I am pulling at the bottom of the trigger, it measures 2.75 lbs. I always try to be in the middle and at that point it is 3 lbs. I know many like it at that or less. However, I prefer 3.5 lbs. When shooting fast double taps I can be heavy fingered and get the second shot off before I should.
  18. The picture above must be from a Tanfoglio, correct? The hammer strut is much shorter than on a CZ 75, and consequently the hammer spring, too. I can go to a heavier CZ hammer spring. However, in the past it has made very little difference. I have an extended firing pin and have to be careful of not going so heavy that I pierce a primer.
  19. Sorry, I am metrically challenged. I just did the gram to ounce conversion and 50 grams equals 1.76 ounces. I was hoping for more. The link is for a trigger return spring. The Tanfoglio looks like it may be stronger in the picture. Did you try changing to a Tanfoglio trigger return spring?
  20. My experience with hammer springs and SA is that they don't make a lot of difference. I am at 15 pounds right now.
