Pre B CZ 85 trigger parts
« on: March 15, 2017, 03:27:11 PM »
I have a 1991 CZ 85, B05XX, that still has the original long-reach trigger, trigger pin, and trigger return spring. Will he newer, shorter-reach trigger and improved trigger pin and return spring work in a Pre B pistol?

The new trigger will work but you are stuck with the original press-fit solid pin unless you get the trigger pin hole reamed out - the new-style trigger pins are ever so slightly thicker.

Thank you. How about the new improved trigger return spring?

New Trigger spring will work just fine.

I have CGW floating trigger pins in both of my pre-b's. Are the 85's different?

Some Pre-B's have the current style pins. If the frame does not have the little depression around the pin hole like modern frames have, then it uses the old-style press fit pin.

Good to know, thanks.

Ok, can you tell from these photos of the gun in question if it will take the new pin?

That will take a new style pin.

Nice gun. Blued finish?

So that's why the "new floating" trigger pin was hard to drive in.  I just figured it was because of the cerakote on/in the frame.  Oh well, I don't intend to drive it back out anytime soon.  Hard to install in my old style trigger pin Pre B CZ 85 I mean.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Yes it is. I've had it since '92. Here's a photo of it with an '09 CZ 85B.
