First trip to the range since I received my P-10 back from CZ-USA Warranty Service. Fired 100 rounds of Aguila 147 grain ammo. My P-10 performed flawlessly, not a single hiccup. The trigger, after polishing and replacing the stock striker spring with a HBIndustries 3.5 pound spring, is amazing averaging 4.27 pounds on a Layman digital scale. Certainly one of the most accurate handguns I have ever fired. As you will recall, CZ replaced the striker block spring ( mostly likely lost by my gunsmith ) and adjusted the slide cover plate which now remains firmly in place when the slide is locked back. I did not have any "fatal flaw" issues before I sent my P-10 to CZ-USA Warranty Service and I truly don't expect to have any after the slide cover plate was adjusted. I am so excited to have my P-10 back in my hands and look forward to many more fun days at the range.

I tried to pull my slide cover down and get my striker stuck but just couldn't manage it.

Hey guys. Sorry I don’t feel like reading through all 12 pages.

What’s the general consensus / update ?

Are the P10c’s all worked out now?

New models have rolling changes that fix the issue and I don't think any of us with newer models have had the issue pop back up.

Again, I have a newer C386xxx model. I have the ramped backplate with the striker sleeve cut out. My backcover came dislodged and moved so far down that even the ramping on it would not allow the slide to go back into battery. I can also manually rotate my striker also to the left which can then hang the slide up on the striker. My backplate has little to no play in it either; very tight fit.

I would not say the problems are fixed by any means. CZ needs to offer a true fix.

I bought my P 10 C on 10-22-17 and have about 700 rounds through it before the slide plate shifted down causing the gun to go out of battery.  This happened on the third shot out of the first magazine at the range today.  I contacted CZ-USA and they sent a shipping label and the pistol is on the way to them now.  For what it's worth, the range officer at my local range tells me this is the third P 10 C he has seen fail in this condition.  Love the gun.  Anxious to see the fix.

I put another 50 through mine today with no malfs, so it's not all of them. I haven't seen a single other P-10 on the line - your area must be pretty good for gunshops! Keeping an ear to the ground to CZ, I am.

Thanks for the update guys. Looks like I may hold off for a little while.

How new is CZ to making polymer pistols?

Google and Wikipedia can answer those questions.

P-07 for 5 years?  P-09 for 4?  But they are both hammer fired, DA/SA pistols.  What is new is not polymer, it is the striker fired design.  They do polymer guns just fine.  And my particular P-10C is fine, also.

Another trip to the range today with my P-10 and another flawless performance. Fired 100 rounds of 147 grain ammo with absolutely no issues. CZ P-10 is one of the most accurate handguns I have ever owned. So glad to have it back in my EDC rotation.
