« on: March 12, 2019, 02:29:42 PM »
Will a standard 75 slide fit and function on a 75 Omega frame?

  I have no direct experience so cannot speak authoritatively but I believe the only difference is within the trigger mechanism. I hope that someone who has both will weigh in on this. I don’t believe that the FPB operates any differently between the two. ??
  My only reference point is with the Kadet II that operates equally well on both the Omega frame and pre-b frames. So I’m sort of guessing that it may apply to 75b uppers as well. The Omega slide won’t operate on pre-b’s, of course, due to the lack of FPB lifter.
  You’ve got my curiosity piqued as well.

I had an early non convertible 75B Omega and the slides swapped between my 75BD and the Omega just fine.

That's good to know.  Wonder if it is also true on the convertible models?

I would think the convertible would swap slides as well since the only thing they did to make the 75B convertible was to machine the proper hole in the frame to accept the decocker and safety. CZ USA,vCGW,or CZ Custom probably can answer that for certain.

Slides will interchange and lock on the frames.

But, the Omega has a wide hammer and it will not fit into the slot on the 75 slides.  And, with the omega slide on the non-omega frame (P-01), the trigger would move but not engage anything to let the hammer drop.

So much for some more CZ Frankenstein options in the safe. >:(. But, now we know......

And will a Omega slide work on a 75B frame?

the slides are cut different. Omega guns have single side trigger bar and the slide only has notch on that side. standard 75B has two side trigger bar, so slides are notched both sides. so Omega wont work on 75B action.
