Removing the factory bushing from the slide in order to install the 10X bushing can be approached several ways but I found one that most of us can whip up pretty quickly and with tools we already have on hand. Once the sight/bushing pin is removed from the slide and put in a SAFE place, I used a Craftsman 10mm 1/4' socket for my pushing end with a 3" extension and a 6mm Hex Key inserted into the extension. The socket is a great fit against the bushing on the inside of the slide and the Hex Key allows you a good surface to hammer, (I used a polymer hammer), upon. A few firm taps and the bushing pops right out. Now your slide is ready for the Cajun 10X bushing. Hope this helps, the 10X bushing really does improve accuracy and should be high on the list of hot rod additions to your CZ 75. It's easy to do and now you have one less excuse for not going for it!

Is that an impact socket (looks black)? I don't know if there is a difference in diameter between impact sockets and regular ones?

I'm sensing there's a story there...

That's chrome socket.
Black impacts are much thicker.
When I did my .40, it needed an 11mm Craftsman socket.
Used a wobble extension bar for clearance:
