Czechmate Slideracker keeps coming out during matches

Recommended Posts

How do I attach this thing so it will stay on, but without permanently attaching it to the gun. Is blue loctite safe to use?

Yes. Be sure that the threads are scrupulously clean and it’ll last.

I used a ball endmill to put a detent hole in my slide.  I then sank the original set screw down into the detent until tight.  I added another set screw on to to lock them together.

Put an EGW on it. The latest version has a bigger set screw and stays put without loctite.

Or a shooters connection sidewinder which is basically identical to the EGW but only costs $24.99 for the polished/finished version or $19.99 for the unfinished version.

Thinking I'm going to do this. However I need to wait until the ShootersConnections Finished is INSTOCK again. Its my understanding that the unfinished slide racker is missing the set screws.

Mine wasn't missing anything.  I'm using one in a CM now, and love it.  Way better than stock.

Thanks for the response, maybe I will go with the unfinished one if it does have the setscrew. Let me ask you this, does it allow you to mount the racker to the left hand side.

Yup, that's why I got it.  You still have to remove it to take the slide off, but I've never lock tited the set screw or anything and it's never been a problem.

Yes it does have the set screw and you can mount it in the left side. You can buy the unfinished one and then polish it so it’ll look nice.

 

Heres mine mounted on my TSO.

That is sort of what I did and it works flawlessly! I also have the sidewinder and it got loose every match even with blue locktite. I drilled a detent in the center of the slide cut and had the screw sit in that. The problem is fixed, it has not fallen out since.

@George- are you shooting your TSO in Open Division, or is that just a range toy?

It’s just a range toy. I shoot PCC and just started shooting carry optics after getting the tungsten grip module for my X5.

Does the sidewinder fit in the factory dovetail on the czechmate?

Yes it does. It uses the same 60* dovetail as the TSO.

I messaged shooters connection on FB, and they will be getting more of their slide rackers in stock within this month or next. Or you pay a little bit more to EGW to get it sooner.

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.
