    "The Harrington CZ52-2 and CZ52-3 firing pin kits effectively disable the firing pin block safety. Instead they use a spring return to retract the firing pin. If the decocker on your CZ-52 is defective (and many are...do the pencil test - put a pencil into the barrel and activate the decocker - if the pencil moves at all, the decocker is basically a trigger!), installing these firing pin kits may increase the chance of a negligent discharge (this is no such thing as an 'accidental' discharge). If you do not feel comfortable with this idea, please do not install this kit in your pistol." -makarov.com

    What is the firing pin block safety? Will the safety that has 3 stages (fire, safe and decock) and is located on the left-rear of the pistol be rendered ineffective?

    I don't want to order the CZ52-2 Competition Firing Pin and Trigger enhancement if it is going to negate the safety...

    I pass the decocker pencil test, but it seems that the use of the decocker erodes something that causes the decocker to fire. Does this mean that it is just a matter of time (and use) before my decocker doesn't work properly?
