Well it's safe to say I will fire only factory ammunition out of this pistol until things are sorted out. :roll: Hand loads bring in too many variables. But also understand that 80%+ of the ammunition I've fired out of the pistol so far has been factory ammunition, where there were plenty of failures with.

I just found this thread and thought I would mention the DPM recoil reduction spring might be an answer to replacing the recoil spring. You can make sure it fits your model that way.

I was thinking about trying out that recoil system. I think I will go with that over anything. I've sent them an email all ready and they said they most deffinately have a model available for my compact pistol. Thank you so very much to everyone in this thread, I'll keep you all posted how things work out.

The only rounds that I have had any FTE's on was a box of Remington 9mm ball ammo. For some reason it just wouldn't cycle like it should and I had a few rounds that took multiple strikes on the primer to discharge. When the rounds did go off, the brass was just rolling down my wrist or coming dang close to stove-piping.

As for a failure to lock back on the last round, I've had my own issues which I tried to figure out mechanically and then I realized the problem was long thumbs. I was resting my right thumb on the side of the frame and it would find its way on to the slide catch enough to hold it down.

I shoot at least once a week. My experiance related to the slide lock has always been the magazine. Suggestion, remove the slide and insert an EMPTY clip. Observe the mechanics involved as the clip is inserted the last 1/4 of an inch. Take a wooden pencil or piece of plastic, and slightly push down the follower. By doing this and observeing what happens you can see what causes the slide to lock back and how. This should give you a direction for slide lock corrections. Hope this helps.................... Check each empty clip in the same manner. You should find that not all of you clips will trip the mechanics of the slide lock. I have not found one that is not correctable.

Speaking of which, there is loads of valuable info I found a couple years ago at a place called the "CZ Clone Club." It's pretty much dominated by the EAA Witness guys, but their guns are so close to ours that most of their info is still good. Plus it was very friendly when I was there. Every once in a while a Jericho/BE would show up asking questions there, they are always helpful.

Regarding all this follower stuff. I would still say the best route to go is to modify your slide stop, or simply buy one that is longer and will work with all mags. To me that's better than spending more per magazine to get the right ones if you can even find them.


Hi L5K, just bought a baby eagle (steel 9mm) and was wondering if you remember which CZ model has the slide lock that would fit the baby eagle. My slide would not lock agter discharging the last round. I know it's been a few years but would appreciate the help. Thank you.

I just got 2 CZ 75 9mm mags ( 15 rnd ) and they work just great, no issues at all. Locks back fine, feeds fine, they are tight when I use the slide lock to release the slide, work great if I rack the slide with a fresh full mag and the slide locked back.
