How's the rail on it? And do you have a kadet kit with it?

The rail is probably fine, I don't have anything on it at the moment though. I don't have the kadet kit but have thought about grabbing it at some point.

With aftermarket grips it fits my hands amazingly well. I like the feel of the stock grips but they're just a little too fat for me.

snappy like you couldn't do follow ups very well?

Not my quote response, the kadet kit worked great on my PCR. I've seen reports of people having trouble finding the right slide stop to make the kadet kit work, but my PCR slide stop worked fine. vv


Like excessively recoily, extra jumpy on each shot in a way other comparably sized and weighted pistols I shot side by side weren't. Again, first pistol, definitely inexperienced at shooting.

Do you find follow ups with it difficult? also get the kadet, I know it is a bit of money.

not worried about the home gunsmithing I may or may not have to do with a kadet. With small hands I am already worried about snappyness ;.;

Not at all, and I'm not that great with a pistol. My only real complaint is that the stock sights are pretty garbage which is one of the things that led me to grab the night sights from CGW which is leading me on my current gunsmith adventure.

Looks like the sights should fit fine according to shop #2. No clue what the guy at my range was doing, but they probably won't be getting any smith business from me since they couldn't install some sights. Maybe he just didn't want to do it?

New sights are on. There are some scratches on the rear one you can see in that pic but they aren't a big deal. They could have been on there from the start too, I didn't really look them over. I'll hit the range tomorrow to see if they're properly lined up. The front is so, so much more visible than the stock sights.

I had a malfunction on Saturday and now I can't remove the barrel from the slide of my Shadow.

(click for huge)


The end of the barrel is wider than the rest. (14.3mm on the callipers compared to ~13.9-14.0)
Could a squib do that?

Anything to be done apart from buy a new barrel?

The regular OD for the barrel is .550 I'm pretty sure, so if yours has gone past .560 it's possible you bulged it.

The fit on the bushing can be pretty tight so I'm guessing the bulged portion won't squeeze through the bushing anymore. Have you tried just banging the muzzle against something to see if it will force through the bushing? The alternative I'd guess would be to turn down the outside of the barrel to fit back through again.

I would imagine the barrel is probably hosed.

EFB^^^: NICKBLASTA, do you think it's possible to remove the front sight and use the barrel to pop the bushing out from the back?

Disclaimer: I have a CZ75B, not a Shadow.

What kind of malfunction did you observe? If you can get some light down the barrel, take a look for a ring or flattening of the rifling where you see that bulge. A squib can do that, the second round might have knocked the stuck bullet out and followed it downrange. Will the barrel lock into battery, the muzzle end fully entering the barrel bushing?

Worst case barrel replacement would probably involve cutting the old one to clear the barrel bushing. That bushing is press-fit from the front of the slide and retained by the front sight pin, it would be difficult to knock out with barrel in place. If something happened that close to the muzzle I'd remove and examine the bushing anyways, FWIW.

Yeah, I think you're getting yourself a new barrel. I can't think of a way to get that one off in one piece and keep the bushing, not without access to a lathe. Easiest will just be to hacksaw the old one in half.

The bushing is a press fit (once you remove the front sight), but you're going to have a hell of a time getting it out with the barrel still in there, unless you use the barrel as a slide hammer or something.

Yeah I've tried to hit it middlingly with a mallet but haven't managed to get it out. If it is hosed then I guess I will have to try harder.

I think it must have been a squib then; there is a threshold in the rifling around the bugled portion.
It won't go into battery.

If you've realized you should replace the barrel by now (you likely should) you can always cut the barrel off to get it out rather than loving up other parts hammering it out.

I don't think so, since it seems the barrel is stuck forwards. The bushing only comes out the front and it would have to slide off the end of the barrel.

You could slide the bushing out a little and cut it off, replacement bushings are not very expensive, but you'll have to make your barrel a consistent OD to reuse it I imagine...

Hit up the CZ forum on Enos and see if anyone suggests a solution.

Edit: This wouldn't be a bad case to have a CZsmith fix it for you, if they do have to fit a new barrel and bushing it could save you a lot of hassle.

I've looked on various CZ forums and haven't found an answer yet, so short of calling up Cajun Gun Works, can anybody tell my why my right-side safety lever on my SP-01 keeps walking out as I'm shooting? I installed a ton of CGW upgrades (Reach Reduction Kit, 85 shape trigger, new springs, etc) and despite two separate blue loctite applications, the darn right-side safety walks right on out.

Anyone with a RAMI? How do you like it? There's finally some in stock on the internet and I'm thinking about grabbing one. I've never seen one in stock in person so I haven't had a chance to touch one. The only thing that "concerns" me at all is how wide they are. Have any of you had an issue with that?

Ok, I've got some Xmas money burning a hole in my pocket. What is the best collection of Scorpion accessories that would make some sense? I'm thinking some kind of cheapo red dot and maybe a pistol brace. Would a replacement selector also make some sense?

My purpose it tactically engage with cans and paper. It might have some use if things "got serious", but I have plenty of practical handguns closer by, so I'm not looking for a red dot that can survive 8 months in country.

I shot a friends a bunch and really dug it, though CZ handguns just click for me more than most other pistols so take that for what its worth.

They are wide pistols, but not awful, and they're very nice. I missed a couple used ones and I'm still grumpy about it.

HBI spring kit, yeti wurks switchback, and then whatever selectors you prefer are absolutely necessary upgrades imo. I went with mini ak selectors on both sides and like that. I have a spitfire 1x as my option optic as well.

All the used ones I've seen have been more expensive than historical online prices so I hadn't really even considered grabbing one until they came into stock other places. I may just go ahead and grab one over the next couple of days and go from there. I doubt I'd have issues selling if I didn't like it, so there's that.
