    Slide won't lock back, round won't strip from mag

    Well I found the problem. I removed the 11 lb recoil spring that CZC sold me (standard round wire type part #30016) and put the factory original flat wire type recoil spring back in it and it is dry functioning as it should. I asked CZC to sell me the exact parts that they use when they customize one of these Shadowline compacts. The 11lb CZC spring was a lot longer than the original and it "bunched" up around the recoil spring guide. I assume this compressed and held the slide just short of a complete stoke during racking. I would think that this gun would need a shorter spring like the original so I will call CZC and confirm that they sent me the right spring for this compact. Edit 1. Just took it outside and it is running like a top. Edit 2. Talked to CZC and they confirmed that that spring is for a full size and will not work in a Compact. They also said that they do not change recoil springs in the Shadowline Compacts that they customize. So just some miscommunication on the prior order.

    Slide won't lock back, round won't strip from mag

    Thanks for your response. This is a brand new gun with new factory standard mags ( approx 200 rds fired before my modifications). Slide will not manually lock back (mag or no mag). I did not polished rails on slide or frame and I did not polish the slide stop. I did polish the frame a little on both sides where the trigger bar contacts it.
  3. I have a CZ 75 Shadowline compact that I just did some work on, I did not fire a lot of rounds through it before I decided to do the work but the couple of hundred I did fire the gun worked as it should. So, I must have screwed something up with my work. All CZC parts, comp hammer, 13lb hammer spring, ext firing pin, rami fp spring, pre b disco, and 11 lb recoil spring. I did some polishing while I was in there. Got it all back together and the empty gun appears to function properly with regards to trigger and resets and such and the DA/SA trigger weights are reduced significantly. The problem is the slide will not lock back. Will not lock back manually or with empty mag in the gun. Also, rounds will not strip out of the mag when loaded mag is inserted into the gun and the slide is racked. Every so often a round will feed partially from the mag but the round jams badly while trying to go into the chamber. I did some pretty aggressive sanding/polishing to the trigger bar (especially the sides that contact the frame). I also noticed that the humps on the top of the trigger bar that the slide rides on, (especially one side) seemed misshapen and uneven so I rounded them over and polished them thinking the slide would ride back much smoother. Do you guys think I may have screwed up and taken too much off the trigger bar humps to cause the malfunctions that I am seeing? If not any other suggestions. TIA

    What laser for your PCC

    Well it seems like the 206 is pretty popular so I ordered one to try out. Thanks for the input.

    What laser for your PCC

    Guys, I am in the market for a green laser for my PCC for IDPA and USPSA. I am looking at the sight mark Lo Pro, the Crimson Trace CMR 206, and the Holosun LS 117G. What do you guys think? Would like to run it at 12 o'clock ideally but I am running an Eotech EXPS so I don't have much height to work with on top so may have to run it elsewhere.

    Well they say the first step is to hang out in the Tanfo forum right?

    Is the 1,18 kg weight with the empty site plate installed, and with or without an empty mag?

    New IFG “LimPro” update

    IFG indicated that the Lim Pro would be priced "around" the price of the Stock II.

    New IFG “LimPro” update

    Also, I was confused as to whether the new Lim Pros were going to be black or hard chrome from the different pictures on the web. IFG indicated that the sample they had imported was black but that the production guns will be hard chrome.

    CZ Compacts Shadow Line and PCR

    Ok so decided to put both guns back the way they were and take Stuart's advice and buy the CZC parts to modify the Shadowline and leave the PCR Cajunized. I am trying to get this gun ready for IDPA CCP division, and I would like it to feel as close to my two Accu-shadows and my Shadow Custom as possible. So I have a few questions for Stuart and anybody else who has the CZC Customized Shadowline compact. 1.does the customized shadow line compact from czc feel the same as the full size accu-shadows in terms of triggers. Especially in regards to getting rid of all the trigger take-up in SA. 2.the trigger on the Shadowline is the old style 85c I think, it is a little less curved and a little thicker than the triggers on my accu-shadows and shadow custom. Do I need to consider replacing this trigger with the shadow trigger, I don't think that they replace the trigger when CZC does the custom work on the shadowline. 3.I know I said above that I am trying to be consistent with my other shadows, BUT I am considering putting the reach reduction on the compact as well. What are the pros and cons of doing this? Do I give up anything in terms of pull weight, reset length, reset crispness, pre travel etc? I love my shadow triggers and compete with them and I want that for this new compact but I would like to try the shorter reach as well if it does not require me to give up anything in exchange. Thanks

    Fitting rear dovetail sight plate

    Well success. Took a little off the bottom and then a little off the ears. Tapped it in with a nylon punch. Carry optics here I come!! Actually not too bad. Had some new sharp files, went pretty smooth and quickly.
