Switched slides on my CZ 75s. Will it work?

    I swapped slides between my 75 and my 75 Compact. Looks interesting. Safe to shoot?

    Don't know if it's okay to shoot. Don't think i'd risk possible damage just for giggles.

    wouldn't even try it. It's up to you if you want to risk damaging a nice pistol, well, two nice pistols since you slipped the slides.

    This could affect how the round headspaces, etc. Quite simply put them back and treat them nicely.

    The military does it, then again it's only one model when they do it.

    Those pistols headspace off the case, your headspacing will be fine, worry about wear on the frame rails.

    It should work fine. They are the same model, just different lengths. Some people on the CZ forums have even swapped in .40smith top ends on to strictly 9mm frames (SP01 is only available in 9mm) and had them function flawlessly.

    FWIW the EAA Tangfolio clones allow swapping between all of the calibers.

    Looks like what you've done is to make your own two-tone CZ75 Semi-Compact with the dark compact slide on the satin nickle receiver. Looks just like one of my Semi-Compact models.

    No problem as long as both the upper and lower are from the 'B' models with the firing pin block. I would think that a 'Pre-B' lower with the 'B' upper would not work due to the lack of trigger piston in the lower not activating the block in the upper.

    The full-size slide on the compact frame also looks nice, wold that be considered a 'Demi-Compact'?
