  1. That's pretty slick. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. The slide has the same issues regardless of barrel combo. Even with the slide off you can feel resistance sliding it back and forth. Waiting to hear back from cz on the issue but it really looks like it was a Friday 430 type build. Slide rails were never finished and it is binding. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks. I dont feel like messing with the unfinished one. Would be easy enough to drill and tap at work but might just order the egw and be done with it. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Awesome. Thanks. Going to order one for my dad. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Does the sidewinder fit in the factory dovetail on the czechmate? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. Good to know. I've spent time every night racking it like crazy. Going to take it hopefully tonite to try it out. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. The reloads I tried in internet quite major but close to it. About 160pf. I cleaned it up real good last night and sat at the bench for about 20 minutes racking it. Going to take it out today and see if there is any improvement. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Gun is only a week old. I have 3 friends that just got Czechmates and have no issues at all with them. 2 of them are running strictly factory ammo. Other is running a minor steel load. It does the same thing with the barrel out and just cycling the empty slide by hand. You can feel the resistance. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. Just picked up a brand new Czechmate from a local FFL and having some issues with it. Doesn't matter which barrel, comp, or sight block is on it it's very sluggish going into battery. A couple times it's not ejecting and leaving the spent case in the chamber but usually it stops about 1/4" out of battery. Give it a little push and it goes in. If you rack it by hand it'll go in but while shooting it doesn't. It may need to be broken in a bit more. But it does it with factory and hand loads. There are an awful lot of machining marks on the slide and with how long the rails are there are only a small portion at the front and back that are shiny like they are making contact. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or just keep shooting it and see if it straightens out? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Thank you for all the input. I think I'm either going to go with the McCormick or Tripp. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. A friend of mine has some of them all. He said I can borrow them and see which I feel work best. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for your input. I guess I'm going to do some more research before I buy. Just want to do it right the first time rather than spend more money than I want to on mags. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. I think I might go with Tripp. Seems like that's the one so far. I remember a friend of mine used the Dawsons and ended up having them be able to go in too far and broke his ejector a couple times. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Ok I'm not really worried about losing rounds or doing drills or courses with a few shots and a mag change. Going to primarily be for steel shoots for iron sight gun. Most clubs I shoot irons are limited to 10 rounds where I am everywhere else I shoot open with no mag limits. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. I'm going to be getting a new 1911 in the next few weeks and heard that the mags that come with it kind of suck. What are a good out of the box mag to get? I've been looking at the dawson 10 round mags. Anyone have any input on them? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
