PCR slide atop a 75 compact steel frame?
« on: December 10, 2010, 10:38:15 AM »
Would a PCR slide fit on a 75. Steel compact frame? I don't like alloy but would like to gain the loaded chamber indicator, front slide serrations, and low profile sights. So I'm wondering if this is doable with no mods? Or if it would be worth it?

Works fine but you will never find a PCR upper for sale so you would end up buying a complete gun and selling the frame. I swap uppers from 4 different CZ's all the time and PCR is one of them.

BurningSquirrels commented once that CZs are like legos to some of  us. I agree.

It can be done but why? 

What is wrong with the alloy frame:

The PCR is a top notch carry gun for all the reasons you stated.  The light weight alloy frame is another big plus to me.

My swaps usually involve something like nickel upper on my PCR for longer sight plane but still light frame and it looks great.
