Default CZ75b polished stainless porn

Just brought her home and changed her attire to Vz zebra frag grips and 11.5lb hammer spring. It shows some fine scratches but that's the nature of a highly polished stainless finish. I'll touch this up later with Dremel polish wheel and Flitz. Now I'm debating whether to change to a CZ sao straight trigger, remove the fpb / replace fpb lever with spacer, and disconnector for a super short reset.

mag with flat black steel base plate

barrel is highly polished from factory


mag with rubber base plate

Thanks, I'll probably get a gun sock for it, keep surfaces lightly oiled with Eezox, and periodically touch it up with Flitz.

Looks like nice, but it doesn't look stainless to me. It looks more like bare metal. Hope you plan to put some sort of coating on it to keep it from oxidizing or rusting.

Wow, if you slap those grips on, that would definitely make it the pimpest CZ I've ever seen.

Is the frame really SS, or just bare metal?

Damn pretty. Continue to make it "yours" so it's truly one of a kind.

Question: How often do you plan on shooting it? Just curious...

I will put this one in the rotation going to the range. I'll make this or the matt stainless a SAO trigger and install CGW's polished race trigger on both.

The matt stainless is still in stock at kygunco.com. Btw they'll do a lay away for 20% down and 60 days to pay it off, just use check as payment method at check out to secure it, then mail the deposit to them.

It would probably yellow after awhile, just have to retouch with Flitz periodically.

Eeeek. Not really feeling the bling bling on it. Reminds me of lil Wayne's grill.

As long as you like it though is all that matters.

Just did an action polish job, removed the fpb, replaced lever with spacer. I disassembled the trigger assembly and sear cage. Polished all contact points on the trigger bar and sear cage starting out with 600 grit sand paper on a wood block down to 800 grit, then Flitz on a Dremel with a polishing wheel. Got contact surfaces to a mirror finish. Trigger pull is so smooth now even with the stock hammer. I always refer back to zfield's tutorial.

Just have them ship it to an FFL that can do SSE like Ryan @ Table Rock Arms in Oregon that does CZ's or they may be others in state depending where you live. They can do the SSE modification and disassemble the 16rd mags into rebuild kits to ship directly to you.

Yesterday I received the CGW chrome race hammer. David custom cut this hammer to 2.5lbs. I polished the entire chrome hammer including contact points near the hooks and billet sear. I installed it with CGW's hammer pins, lightened trigger return spring, and floating trigger pin. The new trigger pin's ends are now rounded which aids alignment when reinstalling the trigger assembly. I adjusted the set screw for the safety. Using CGW's starter punch makes driving the stock hammer pins an easy job. It now resets as soon as I release the trigger. Before the hammer install, even with removing the fpb and replacing the fpb lever with a spacer still had a longish reset. This hammer shortened that reset at least 75%.

Last thing I'd like to do is change to target sights with fiber optic front and all black serrated rear.
