Looking for folks who have worked with the NECG peep sight and their front sight inserts.  The rear sight seems simple enough but best to check.  They indicate the front inserts might require some fitting?  This would be for a 527 Lux 223 lefty.
Midwest Industries are developing handgaurds for the scorpion. Not sure on release date.

My vision problems persist.  I ended up with "secondary cataracts" which is really Posterior Capsule Opacity, PCO.  Happens to about 10-20% of cataract patients and a simple fix.  However I can use iron sights and peeps the best!

My plan is simpler.  I'm searching for a deal on a used lefty Lux in 223.  The aggravation of adding a front sight to my American ended that route.  Gunsmiths, the good ones, are so busy that the real alternative was doing it myself.  Not interested in doing my first front sight install on a pristine American! I'm not the sharpest tack but nowhere near that dull.

Thank you all for your assistance.

Classified yesterday w/my P01 Omega -performed better than normal. Am loving this gun
Keep in mind that for SSP, you'll need to manually decock the pistol and run it DA/SA, so the SP-01 Tactical might be a better choice if you're dedicated to SSP. You have a lot more options for modifications, and can run cocked-and-locked, in ESP.

Thanks for the info.

We could use some rain here, too.  I've been carrying 5 gallon buckets of water to the fig trees for more than a week.

You can keep the snow though.  We don't need that, especially not this time of the year.  Hard on the trees with all the leaves still on.
A very nice pistol still for sale. Any offers? Worst I can do is say no.
CZ75s - All Full-Size Pistols / Re: PreB trigger upgrade recommendations
« Last post by M1A4ME on Today at 11:08:09 AM »
The frame modification is internal and no on will ever see it or know it.  Not too hard.  I did mine with a new magazine (for test fitting) and a file.  Should disassemble it first and buy some carb. cleaner to spray it out with between filing/fitting and after you're done filing for good.

Prior to spending money on trigger upgrade stuff you might want to insure the springs, extractor, and barrel are good to go.

My Pre B CZ 85 had a badly pitted barrel/chamber so I replaced the barrel (probably cost what the trigger upgrade parts would cost).

New springs wouldn't be too expensive, but consider the springs (weight) prior to buying to make sure you don't end up buying a spring you want to replace later during the successive upgrades.

I have never messed with my trigger/sear/hammer as I figure they got the "use it well and it'll smooth out" trigger job.

Lots of guys here have bought/restored Pre B's.

You know we like to see pictures....

Oh, and watch that safety.  There's a couple parts in that pre P safety lever that are just about impossible to find/buy/replace if you lose the originals.
CZ Scorpion EVO / Re: Considering turning my pistol into a carbine
« Last post by John A. on Today at 10:54:25 AM »
Been really busy with my family the last few days and haven't had any extra time to work on this.

I machined some of the exterior surface this morning even though most of the grooves will be hidden (recessed) back underneath of the handguard.

I mostly did the exterior work to reduce some of the weight because it's unnecessary and to put it on a diet, but machined in the grooves to serve as a built-in "barrel cooler".   

I also reprofiled the last 3 inches of the barrel and turned it down thinner, to match the OD of the scorpion carbine pencil barrel better to give it more of a factory look at the same time.

I will be using Norrells Moly socom black firearm finish on the barrel and extension after I pin and weld it, but I used some cold blue on the raw metal that will be hiding underneath of there to protect it in case of future abrasions in the finish.

Only things I have left to do now is to complete the 18mm threading, making sure everything is straight enough to use my can, and then pin/weld and refinish.  I doubt that I'll do any more major machinework to the piece.
