New Cz 40b owner and first CZ
« on: January 17, 2016, 11:54:55 PM »
Good evening everyone!
So I recently picked up a cz 40b and have a few questions.
First question being about magazines. I having alot of problems with failure to feed and rounds getting hung up on the feed rail. I am assuming its just old worn mags and its nose diving. Is this a known issue or is worn recoil spring? Second question is also about magazines. Is there any good extended mag options past the standard 12 rounders? (my came with 2 10-rounders)
Third question is about parts compatibility. I am having a lot of problems researching what parts of 40b are compatible with other czs. So exactly what parts are interchangable (specifically the trigger and barrel)?
Last question is whats a good source for aftermarkets parts?

Thank you for your time.

Congrats on a great pistol! You'll likely never need a new barrel, but for a great resource (as most cz guys will say) check out CGW and Cz custom for parts. Most are interchangeable. Give me a look see an a phone call. Enjoy,

Any magazine that'll fit a CZ75 .40 will work on a CZ40B.  Mec Gar makes a 14 rounder.

Had one, fantastic 40 cal! Use as strong a recoil spring you can find, may have to trim coils to prevent coil bind, but they shoot just fine.

Wow,
My 2002 75 40B was also plagued every 20-30 rounds fired. Polished ramp and after problem repeatedly happened I wrote email to CZ and their gunsmith sent a new Wolf ejection spring to correct Failure to Eject spent and round hanging on ramp combination. Because this 40 has been totally unlike my CZ 75 9mm was as far as reliability, I bought a Glock 23 for Home Defense and reliability.
Just got around to replacing spring and I'm going to post new findings afterwards.
Before anyone asks about types of loads, I did try WinchesterRange rounds as well as Federal Hydroshock rounds and the stovepipe/ fail to feed continued intermittently.
If anyone else has had same issues please reply as I'm almost ready to do the unthinkable and sell it  or trade for an operational Rami .40 if spring replacement "Fails to Fix".

This .40 must have been a known item because the gunsmith said not a thing and sent me a beefy extraction spring. My first 75 was a 9mm bought in W. Germany while in service in 1989. That gun was awesome n NEVER failed before it was stolen.
I'm about ready to test fire since having my righ knee surgery so we're going to find out very soon. I'm going to fire a hundred rounds if it will let me.
I'm driving to Phoenix to speak to them if I have a misdeed or Failure to eject.

Get some Wolff Extra power mag springs and and make sure the mags are clean.  Make sure your extractor channel is clean and functions.

Make sure your lubing the rails well, I run CGW slide grease mixed with FP10.  Polishing the feed ramp and the extra power extractor spring also good things to try.

Cheers,
Toby

Thx for the info about mag springs. Did polish feed ramp and as mentioned, replaced extraction spring. In fact,my gunsmith said it was super stiff n hard to put in the new wolf spring CZ sent. Going Sunday after church now that my knee is on the mend and looking to put issue behind me. .
Your input along with others have been encouraging. I loved my CZ 75 9mm n have high hopes this .40. is resolved because these guns are usually the most reliable accurate and fun to shoot. 

I'll post the outcome Sunday night.
