    I broke the slide stop on my pre-B CZ-75. Does anyone know what might have caused this? I have never shot steel-cased, handloads, or other weird ammunition from it, just normal factory stuff. Anyone know of a place I could find a new slide stop around here? Also, I'd like to get the gun thoroughly checked out by a gunsmith. Who is the recommended smith in the area for CZ-75s?

    This is something that happens with the CZ-75. It is considered a 'wear' piece I think.

    If you call CZ, they will send you replacements.

    Nope, they dont. For their IPSC people, I think they sell the CZ75 with a whole package of slide-stops. It seems to be an issue for some, but not every owner, which is weird, but how it seems to work.

    I think if you ask, they'll send you a few, free of charge.

    Really? I hope they still have pre-B slide stops around. I just started doing IPSC so having a baggy full of them might be a good idea.

    As far as I know, they are compatible, aren't they? Otherwise, I'm sure they do.

    They are compatible iirc, but they don't look quite as pretty on a pre-b
