    DIY TSO Thumbrest FTW

    Whelp, I stepped outside to my home range today and tried out my DIY *thumb rest. Turns out that it effects my grip negatively causing the TSO to exhibit more muzzle flip. Using the stock thumbrest with my support thumb pushing down on top of the rest and wrist twisted forward results in a very flat shooting pistol. Not so much with my home made rest. I reckon I will make another with less angle to it. Sometime.

    And if you're worried about permanently modifying the gun, you can just superglue a piece of black pencil eraser that will take out most of the over travel onto the back of the trigger guard.

    One easy thing to do yourself is To add an over travel adjustment. You can carefully drill a hole in the rear of the trigger guard and thread in a set screw.

    DIY TSO Thumbrest FTW

    I have learned my lesson regarding turning a hobby into a job. It was easy to make this, just give it a shot! I also think thumbrests are best customized to the individual shooter. As far as using forward serrations, if that is something a man is committed to he's best to avoid most thumb rests. CZ makes that low rest that would allow better forward slide grip, but it does not look conducive to a high grip.

    DIY TSO Thumbrest FTW

    Another rainy Saturday here in Georgia, and not having enough in-process projects *cough*, I decided to make a new thumbrest for my TSO. The stock thumbrest honestly doesn't bother me that much, though everyone seems to complain about it. I have a very high grip and with the stock rest my thumb just pushes down on the very top which works okay. I just figured I could do a little better. I made this unit out of some angle aluminum scrap. Sawed, filed, ground, drilled, etc until it fit the gun, my grip, and my holster. Then I sanded it to 600 grit. I first tried blacking it with Aluminum Black and then sanding that back to give it an aged patina look, but my wife claimed that looked pretty dumb. So I painted it with the only black spray paint I had around, which happened to be textured. Hey, I can always sand it off later! Its definitely an improvement in function, I'm not gonna make any claims in the looks department.

    I reckon you are right, I hadn't thought about it like that.

    TSO Safety

    Also, if you are .80 out of holster to first hit I do not feel that I am qualified to advise you and retract my statement.

    TSO Safety

    The CZC extended safety is awesome and the fulcrum on/off it allows is one of my favorite things about my TSO. It might not work with very short thumbs though. Honestly though, I don't feel that the stock safety position is particularly far forward. My wife has weird midget hands and she can work it ok. Could it maybe be your grip? Edit: sorry you posted that right when I did.

    Mission - soft and flat shooting AR15

    Key word. Unless you decide you won't run the gun dry to bolt hold open anyway and adjust the gas to short stroke. Than its slightly more than barely. Still need spacer though of course. Be careful?

    Mission - soft and flat shooting AR15

    I'm running an A5 receiver extension, but rifle would work too. I tried a bunch of different springs I had already and ended up liking the Taccom rifle spring best, which I believe is 10% reduced. They were all pretty close though. Yes the carbine buffer is completely empty. With a adj block the buffer is already barely touching the back of the receiver extension, so the difference this setup makes is fairly minor honestly. But also cheap. It only works with the ammo you set it for. If you set it for weak PMC bronze and then stick proper M193 in the buffer will bottom out. So ammo specific. it also moves fast, which some might feel as not soft. I prioritize flat shooting and reducing dot movement. it's cheap and easy to try is the main thing, you probably have everything you need already. The SCS is sweet too, As is the armaspec. To find the number of quarters, put some in, stick in the spring and buffer, use a towel rod to push down buffer till it bottoms out without hitting the lower reciever. Add one to be sure. the space between the buffer bottoming out and the bolt catch still working is pretty small.

    Before buying the SCS you might try running it first with an empty buffer and a rifle spring. If you use a carbine buffer in a non carbine receiver extension make sure to use a spacer (like quarters) to keep the gas key from hitting the receiver when it operates. By using just enough quarters for minimum key clearance and only enough gas to lock bolt open on last round you can keep the buffer from ever reaching the end of the tube. That's what I found to give the flattest impulse anyhow. SCS is good too. I assume this is a game gun of course.

    CZ Tac sport value?

    CZ just discontinued the base TS. They will still make the TSO. https://cz-usa.com/product/cz-75-tactical-sport-9mm-dual-tone-20-rd-mags/

    I have 2 rifles with the Superlative Arms block. Both have been superlative. You can set it to vent gas from block or to operate like a conventional adjustable gas block.

    I don't need a TS, but I couldn't pass up $1000 for all that...especially considering there won't be any more of them.
