    So I was out at the range yesterday, and I was shooting some potatoes that somebody left out on a bench (nobody was around, so I took them (I was out at the range when I took them) and they are awesome to shoot they explode everywhere, it's great fun. Really hard to hit though.) and my CZ 75B JAMMED for the first time. it was a failure to eject and I suspect it was an ammo problem (I was using blazer brass fmj 115 gr.) but I was bummed. it is reliable but every mechanical device has flaws or will fail at some point. I also had problems with the ruddy thing flipping brass into my face again every once and a while. I think I am going to change ammo and take a look at my shooting stance and grip and technique. My accuracy is not what I would like it to be, and I think I just need some more practice with it.

    oh and it was the first jam in about 2000, maybe 3000 rounds fired.

    those aren't bad odds considering I'm using the cheap ammo.

    oh and It's quite Ironic that I live in Idaho and the potatoes thing isnt it

    Have to ask, are you careful about cleaning under the extractor? Some CZ extractors will build up gunk over time, and the flipping cases up has been said to be a warning sign of that. Just a thought.
    I like potatoes - biodegradeable target.

    I will have to clean that a bit better. that is a spot I always seem to miss because It's so hard to clean.

    Blazer Aluminum would have been my guess. Every CZ I've shot never had issues with Blazer Brass.

    yeah I'm not very accurate with it because A- I really need to actually sight it in (was always too lazy to do it) and B- I like to rapid fire, and when I shoot it and miss then I get angry and shoot it again but Don't really take the time to aim it. It's a curse from rifle shooting.

    Your fastest misses won't stop potato-man from laughing.

    IS it Blazer alum? or the newer actually brass cased Blazer?

    The alum stuff is crap for CZs, esp. the 75B models which might suffer from a weak extractor spring.

    My 75B SS would chew through anything but Blazer, with FTE issues every 6th round or so.

    I think you are wise to change ammo.

    1.) Anyone can hit an object pressed against the muzzle.

    2.) You must enjoy missing a lot.

    C.) You've covered the inside of an entire barn with french fries.

    off-line mostly.
    I once had a CZ75B .40 SA that started failing-to-eject after about 800 rounds through it.
    I took it to a gunsmith and he cleaned it and checked it out, changed the extractor spring, and said it was good to go.

    Once I go it back it worked fine for a about 200 rounds.
    And then it once again started failing to eject about three times every 10-round magazine.
    I changed magazines and changed ammo....still no cure.

    I eventually sold it to a guy who thought he could fix it.
    Last time I talked to him it was still malfunctioning and he was going to send it back to CZ.

    Good luck,
    Easy

    I disagree with the statement that Blazer aluminum is crap for cZs, especially the 75B. I have shot thousands of rounds of Blazer aluminum through my 75s, 75Bs and 75 Compacts with no problems. It is my choice for practice ammunition.

    Yep, this sounds like a typical dirty extractor on a CZ. Give her a good cleaning and a light oiling and see how she runs.

    Um, when I talk about shooting potatoes they are the ammo, not the target. Think of PVC hand hair spray. Anyway, I'm sure your CZ-75b will go another 2 or 3k before jamming again. --Stork

    One jam in 2k-3k rounds is pretty damn good, nothing is perfect.
