Title: CZ 75 SP-01 Manual Safety Tutorial Videos
Post by: Scarlett Pistol on February 03, 2017, 06:12:18 PM
I've been making tutorial videos for the manual safety CZ 75's and CZ SP-01's. I have disassembly, assembly, and a couple explanation videos so far. I got some great feedback from members in another thread who have seen these. I hope these can add to the great tutorials on here and on YouTube. If they are helpful give them a thumbs up so more people on YouTube can find them when searching. And feel free to give feedback for future videos and subjects. I'm not a professional videographer, so I'll do my best to continue to improve quality with the equipment I have. Hope these help!

I reviewed your videos a couple days ago, more as a refresher than anything, in preparation for the polish and mods on my new SP-01 Shadow.

You did a great job, and my gun just fall apart in my hands.

I am waiting on a few parts, so no big rush, so I spent quality time polishing internals on this rig tonight. More tomorrow.

Not my first one to do, but I have been on the P-07 and 9 for a while now, so getting back to the more complex lockwork makes me use the BRANE(brain)(brian, bryan  brad or whatever his name is just a tad more.

Thank you for your hard work! O0

Yeah.... I tried to round up a better video camera and couldn't get one. GoPro's are really good for certain things, just not these type of videos. Sorry I couldn't snag something better for you all.

I had recorded more content when I did everything I had just not gotten to editing it and uploading it. I uploaded a video on polishing the frame and slide. Working on editing and uploading some more, but figured I would share so people know it is there and more are coming.

I made two videos about converting to Single Action Only. One is more just an explanation of what to do and how it works. The other actually walks through a conversion. I know this comes up pretty often on the forum so hopefully these can be a helpful reference.

The video just explaining Single Action Only conversion - (think high level explanation):

I figured it might be more helpful for the forum members if I just put the videos in the original post on the thread. Let me know if you all like that more or not.

Thank you for doing these. I have torn apart my Glocks and Sigs many times but I have to say that I was just a little intimidated by the CZ sear cage removal and disassembly in my recently acquired 75B. These videos are just what the doctor ordered.

Glad they helped! Putting the sear cage back together for the videos led me to find the my trick for getting that little lifter arm back in place. Made the whole project worth it for me! But I hope these spare you the steeper leaner in curve I had.

Scarlett Pistol  Thank you for taking the time to make and post these!  They were hugely helpful to me.
Particularly the one on how to reassemble the sear cage.  Much appreciated! 


 One can actually see what you are doing ... compared to so many other well intended folks who do not realize that are working off  camera of their hands are in the way of the camera all the time. 

Keep up the good work and keep them coming!

Thanks and you're most welcome. I'm always glad to hear they are helpful. I'm in the middle of a remodel project on a rental property, but I have 4 or 5 videos that I've got filmed and just need to edit and upload. Should have them uploaded once this is done.

Scarlett,

I was directed to your thread after I posted a thread titled 'SP-01 manual safety sear cage rebuild'. Basically, it was a plea for help as I was rebuilding my SP-01 with the CGW 75105 kit and could not for the life of me figure out how to rebuild the sear cage.

After having to reorder 3 new lifter springs from CGW (2 extra as cheap insurance) having lost the first one (or as CGW site says, 'L-spring... often lost, seldom found', delphidoc directed me to your sear cage disassembly and reassembly video.

I took the laptop to my work bench in the garage so I could pause after every step. One note, camera angle is great, but I had to zoom in to make sure I had everything oriented as you did. Long story short, I got it together on the first try, though not easy with my fat fingers. Basically, you were guiding my hands.

I could not have completed this upgrade without your video. I finished off the build and holy cow! A completely different gun (didn't think perfection could be improved, but CGW and CZ Custom have figured out how to improve the triggers on an already amazing firearm).

From your other videos now you've got me thinking about other changes, such as firing pin block removal (does this improve trigger feel?) and the single action only trigger. I already upgraded to the 85C trigger (my finger never like the curvature of the stock trigger).

Thanks again,

Dave

Glad the videos came through for ya Dave! I'll always admit they aren't professional grade... I just don't have the equipment to pull that off. But I am glad to hear when they help people get through projects!

Removing the firing pin block primarily changes the single action reset. Makes it much shorter, like the Shadows. With the upgrades you have now you won't see a big change in trigger pull weight. It's not a recommended mod for carry guns, but for range toys and competition guns it's highly recommended! As for the SAO conversion.... It's good stuff! Really just preferential, but Iove mine! Hence this is my phone's background, keeps me stoked to dry fire and hit the range for practice!

Great job, Scarlett!  I can tell you put a lot of work into this.  I like how you broke the clips up into segments, in order.  I just tore apart my Shadow 2 and did a full polish and upgrade using your videos.   There were a couple times I would have liked a better view or close up to see the part you were working on, but I was still able to figure it out.  This was very helpful!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you. These short vids are very helpful and informative. I am sure you will have saved many  people from having a hard time.
I have seen these type vids posted before, even for this specific gun, but you managed to make the finer details very clear. I especially appreciate the flared trigger pin explanation.

Again, thank you very much.

Kind regards

Rich

Newbie to forum. I wanted a CZ 75 for years I finally got a CZ 75B I ordered the CGW Pro kit I went to my garage turned on the AC Got my laptop and went through your videos step by step. On my CZ 75B the DA was 8.10 SA 4.10 when I started, I did a 5 try average ( Lyman trigger pull gauge) both before and after the CGW Pro kit installed after the Da was 6.10 Sa 1.73.The CZ shoots like a dream!! Thank You
I checked all the parts you said to polish but they all looked pretty good so I thought I'd install the Pro kit and see what I had. I couldn't have done it with out your videos. THANK YOU!!!
I did buy the SP punch from CGW and ordered other roll punches got more than I needed but I guy can't have too many gun tools. Plus of course the tooth pick! I also installed LPA adjustable sights.

Scarlet,

I ran across your bushing video on YouTube. I've had one in my parts drawer for about a year, and your video convinced me I need to finally install it in my SP-01. It's full size, so I will use an 11mm socket, but for the life of me I can't figure out what that rod is that you used in the video (can't find it in your tool list post. Can you please enlighten me? I'm not really an experienced tool pusher.

Many thanks, and my compliments and admiration on all of the videos. Wish they had been out when I Cajunized my shootin'iron.

Are you referring to the rod the socket is attached to when I hammer out the bushing? If so that was just a long ratchet extension I found in some hand-me-down tools I had... If you're speaking about another rod just let me know. Glad the could help and sorry I didn't have this rod listed.
Title: Re: CZ 75 SP-01 Manual Safety Tutorial Videos
Post by: Kickback on June 16, 2017, 10:31:40 PM
So that's a socket extension? It almost looks flexible in the video, which must be an illusion. I'll look around the hardware store and see if I can nab one.

Thanks for the reply,
Ken
