    Sorry, I wasn't sure where to ask this, but...

    I just recently purchased a CZ 75sp01, and the trigger is a bit gritty...I was planning smoothing out the sear, Ejector and Trigger Bar from any of the machining marks made by the factory. I haven't really ever had to do this before, so I was just wondering what would be the best thing to use when smoothing them out.

    Pardon my ignorance, but if its sand paper, then how rough should I use.

    Thanks in advance guys/gals!

    ah cz grit strikes again

    before you destroy that sweet new gun you got with sand paper :what: , try saturating it in solvent and blowing it out with compressed air. Lather, rinse, repeat, lubricate.

    CZ triggers slick up a lot by putting rounds through it. At least 500. Trust me.

    I also find that applying a very high qualtiy gun grease to the sear face helps to

    Otherwise conventional wisdom is that CZ trigger jobs should be handled by professional cz gunsmiths.

    Agreed that the triggers become much better as they break in.

    I don't know much about CZs, listen to these guys. On triggers, you always try to NOT remove metal, just burnish it out smooth. No sandpaper, no files. You use the finest stones you can find. Stones so smooth you will swear nothing is happening.

    Put a thousand rounds through that puppy and then think twice again about it. A nicely broken in trigger will feel much better. When you think it is broken in, clean it up well and then treat the trigger system with a light coat of moly. Bet the urge will leave you then.

    I never use oil, or grease on a trigger. I clean with lighter fluid and then use moly to slick it up.

    OK, thanks guys, maybe I'll leave it alone...Like I said, its not that bad, I was just wanting it a bit smoother. Maybe another 500 rds and it will fix itself.

    Thanks for the input!

    Neither here nor there
    My preference

    I'd shoot it some like everybody says. You might consider investing in the Kadet 22 kit. Put a couple bricks through it, clean well. Trigger should be better. Forget about dry firing. That's no fun anyways. The Kadet kit is awesome.

    I'll admit that while CZs are easily my favorite handguns, their triggers do leave something to be desired. Even after shooting a lot, some still aren't that good. Polishing may help
    I wouldn't touch the hammer hooks or the sear.
    Use fine grit paper (I like the automotive stuff), I like the 800-1000 grit.
    Emery Paper next.
    Felt bob with polishing compound on a Dremel for the final.
    Fine stones on flat surfaces work great.
    You want to remove as little metal as possible.
    If something is pretty smooth to start with, skip the sand paper.
