    I ordered a CZ P-10c a couple days ago after a few days of research showing it to be a decent striker-fire with a nice trigger.
    Yesterday I stumbled upon a video talking about an issue concerning a rotating striker causing the slide to lock up.

    Has this been resolved or is this an issue that could still plague a CZ P10?

    Had some teething issues when they first came out, but have not heard anything about it lately. Seems like there is a mark or notch on the striker plate that is the new, updated striker.

    Completely resolved AND the issue was highly overblown. Here is the video I made when the issue was first mentioned.

    1. Only the early guns had the issue, CZ solved it. Not sure on serial# range but if yours is new, it shouldn't have the issue.
    2. I have an early one. I could rotate the striker the way everyone was worried about but I couldn't get it to jam the gun that way no matter what I did, and I tried...
    3. CGW makes a kit to alleviate the issue. It's $22 and consists of a pin and a new backing plate with a relief hole for the pin. I installed it in less than 5 minutes including researching how to disassemble the slide, since I'd never done it before. Super easy, and now it won't rotate at all. Money well spent.

    Some folks will say "a brand-new gun shouldn't have that problem." I argue that it's not really a problem, there's a cheap fix, and with everyone dropping big bucks on stippling/magwells/slide milling/Cerakote packages and of course mini red-dots, maybe it's not much of an argument ;) I got my P10C used for under $400, and it's had a couple thousand rounds through it now and hasn't jammed yet, either before or after installing the CGW anti-rotation kit. Me happy.

    Now if I could just find a P10F top end to do a longslide conversion...

    This is all very reassuring, thanks folks!

    I was developing some buyer's remorse there and I hadn't even received the pistol yet.

    Wait until you try a P-10S...
