Hope he gets it sorted for you.

Never fun when a beloved firearm's not working properly. I've had to become amateur gunsmith myself a few times - nothing major: replacing the receiver section of my old Anschutz .22 semiauto rifle, a bit of woodworking and minor repairs.

maddy: What happened to your CZ? Did it jam and stop feeding?

Random thought.

In my mind, P226 has an image of being a good guys' gun. Whenever I see a guy using this gun, unless explicitly revealed, I immediately think "Ah, this is a good guy." I suppose it does have some justification of it being used in many law enforcement agency. It's like Glock, only much better looking. Well, in my opinion, at any rate; I'm a guy who thinks Warthog looks sick. tongue

Oh, and Korean Navy SEALs use this gun too, so...yeah.

Teuf: I don't think it jammed; at any rate I don't recall a jam. It started out kind of picky about feeding, then the last time I had it to the range, it wouldn't feed at all. I broke it down as far as I felt comfortable and gave it a good cleaning, but that didn't help. Could be the gun, the ammo (I understand that semi-auto pistols can sometimes be picky that way) or the magazine. But it won't even pick up the first round from the magazine (and I tried loading different numbers of rounds into the magazine, too — from one to six to see if it was a spring-strength issue)

Remember, though, this is one of the guns that was laying around for about 20 years without any maintenance. Longer, in this case, because I don't recall ever even seeing this one the whole time Mr Maddy and I were together. So more like 25 years. At least.

Want to take a look at it? We can figure out how to get it to you if you'd like.waii

Maddy: Failure to feed is usually a magazine issue or possibly a bolt issue. It may not be the magazine spring itself. It could be the follower or the magazine lips as well.

Lets start with the basic remedial trouble shooting steps first.

Do a function check of the fire arm. I am not quite familiar enough with whatever model of CZ pistol you have to be able to tell you how to do that specifically.

If that works carefully examine the magazine. The lips of the magazine should be symmetrical and un-bent. The follower should flush with the surface pressing the round evenly into the feed lips of the magazine when it is loaded with a round.

If you can swing it try a different magazine that is known to function correctly. If it feeds the problem is likely your magazines and you will need to replace them. If it doesn't feed it is likely the bolt or possibly a problem with the mechanism that holds the magazine in place when it is inserted into the fire arm. A gun smith will need to do the work for those two issues unless you have the knack and know how to fix those parts.

That is basically what an armorer would do, Those are the steps taken before a more detailed tear down is done.

If the fire arm had any corrosion or broken parts that needed replacing prior to shooting you may want to have a gunsmith go over the entire weapon to make sure some part didn't snap or have some sort of metal fatigue.

If we can't get the issue sussed out by trying the simple stuff, take it to a smith and see if they can figure it out.

Unfortunately I lack an adequate work space for even amateur gun smithing and I need to replace some of my tools after some got accidentally tossed in a clean up. I need a new punch set and new punch and dye block as well as a dremmel.

Korean special force operators in training, using silenced K7.

Both operators and the gun look neat, although the former a bit more so. [lol]

Oh, I love the Korean guns. Some very interesting approaches, like the folding-stock 5.56 carbines they use. Makes for an interesting combination with the gate guard in pressed BDUs with the fancy aguilettes and chrome helmets.

I've had a fun day: I cut the narrow ends off a couple of .308 cartridges (well, OK, 7.62x51 cartridges, but close enough) and spent some time carefully filing the remaining bits by hand down to 33mm in length. I don't have a reamer so I've been carefully widening out the inside with a round file and some sandpaper wrapped around a punch.

All I have to do now is put a .429" JHP projectile in each (when I get them) - and thank the gods that I'm never intending to fire them in anything.

The cases look great so far - and just a smidge taller than the .44 Magnum's case, as they should be - should look even better with projectiles in them.

Not a bad day's work considering I don't own a properly-sized case trimmer or reamer.

Mmm...delicious.

Indeed. He could use that as a battering ram.

Watchmen of the Apocalypse
Eh the Anzio Iron works guns are toys for people with too much time and money rather then dedicated anti-material rifles.

If you want a 20mm that is truly powerful you pick one that can fire the 20mm Hispano like the Ntw-20

I'm surprised how he was actually started off as a MP.

^ Not the only thing he's been accused of, either, though is is the one thing that's on-topic for this thread.

It is also the thing that is currently drawing the most attention. I wonder what his motivation for the arms running was. Greed being most likely but maybe also proving his personal view point right? A possibility. Personally I think greed won over.

Not a fan of most of the colors there if I'm honest.

Orange, blue, and pink.

Not great gun colors

Eh. Colour is ultimately irrelevant in this case.

Aesthetics are always relevant.

Bring Bling of War back, this modern day stuff is boring. Hire Armani to design everyone's uniforms, get Lamborghini to design all the vehicles, lets make war look amazing again.

No aesthetics are really not relevant especially with military fire arms or unique fire arms. Especially considering aesthetics are not the point of said unique fire arms.

I didn't bring the vid here for someone to bitch about folks personal choice in decoration of their odd fire arm.

Just saying, I'd like a gun that's super effective, and aesthetically pleasing. That's about a third of the reason I hate Glocks (along with the lack of a safety and that weird double-trigger.)
