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

And will a Omega slide work on a 75B 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.
