Unknown part fell out of pistol - please help identify
« on: May 12, 2017, 01:50:29 AM »
EDIT: Problem solved!

Detail stripped the frame today for cleaning. However, just as I was about to put everything back together, an unknown (to me) part fell out of the frame. Part that fell out was not modified in any way. Could someone please help me identify the part? I only have a vague suspicion as to where it might go. Exploded diagrams and parts lists on CGW and CZC have not revealed anything.

- CZ SP01 (standard version), recent production, 2015 or 2016. Gun is factory/stock, no parts have been changed.
- Not a slide part or magazine part (slide and magazine were removed and put away elsewhere before work began).
- Most likely not part of sear cage as I had taken that completely apart there and didn't see anything like it.

Pictures:
First 3 are different angles/views of the part (apologies photos aren't the best).




Last picture is a size comparison next to the sear cage.

just getting my pre bedtime forum posting in. Seriously though, that detent is a terrible design. All it does is fall out all the time.

Thank you guys.

My vague suspicion was correct... I'm slightly surprised actually.

I agree the design is not exactly... optimal. I did not realize there would be no detent spring (unlike the left side) which threw me off (or that both sides would even need their own detents). Especially given that some other variants do have more similar detents and springs for both sides of the ambi safety. That and I had made this thread right after I had spent looking for a non-existent right side spring.

I did the same thing. Taking out the safety on my 85C is a more tedious because it has two spring-loaded detents, but at least those detents never fall out unless I push them out.
