Recently purchased P-01 issue
« on: May 03, 2019, 08:25:17 PM »
Hello all,

I am new to the forum and just picked up my first CZ which is a P-01 steel frame.
The reason I am posting this is because I have run into an issue with it that I was wondering if anyone else has experienced.
The problem is the slide stop just barely engages the magazine follower and unfortunately every time I insert an empty magazine into the pistol and pull the slide back the follower rises passed the slide stop which prevents the slide from locking back but also makes the magazine difficult to remove.
Something that I noticed that has made it slightly worse is I swapped the magazine release because I am left handed. The catch now pushes the magazine away from the slide stop while inserting it until it is locked in place instead of towards the slide stop like it would with the catch on the left side.
The issue is present either way, engagement is minimal but much more noticeable with the mag catch reversed.
I recently purchased a new slide stop and installed it thinking maybe the original was machined too short but this did not help. Both magazines also offer the same results so I am less inclined to believe it is a mag issue. I am not new to firearms but wanted to see if anyone else has run into this and if so what the fix was?
I really appreciate any helpful feedback.
Thanks!

Never had that issue.  I have multiple compacts with magazines from 14 to 19 rounds in use. 

Only mag. issue I've had is 3 new magazines not pushing the slide lock into a fully upward position when locking the slide back on an empty magazine.  New/higher power springs solved that, but it doesn't sound like it would help you.

And I had one of those steel framed P01 looking CZ75 compacts and shot it a bit and never had issues with it.

When you say the follower never makes contact with the slide lock are you talking about the flat ledge (below the angled nose of the follower) on the left side of the follower?

Thought I had a picture of the follower at the top of the magazine, but there's a bullet in the way (different problem someone was having.)
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Call CZ USA and explain the problem.They will take care of you. Never heard of such an issue with a CZ.

Reference picture for top of follower.

Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

Thanks for the responses!
Here are a few pics of the problem. The shelf on the follower that is cut out specifically for contact with the slide stop misses the slide stop. I think I probably will send this back to CZ.

It is really only a problem when inserting an empty mag with the slide closed. It will almost always miss the follower

I'd contact CZ-USA and email those pics to them.That may just be an out of spec slide stop and maybe they could just send you a replacement. Definitely make them aware of that.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 110%
...somethings a hair out of whack. I know its not what you want to hear bur my $.02 would be to send the entire pistol in and let them check everything over. It could well be a the slide stop but...
Part of what you paid for was a manufacturers warranty, use it.
    Again, JMO

Well, I guess this will be going back tomorrow so they can look at it. I hate to send it off but I agree that it’s something that needs further inspection. I appreciate all of the feedback and I will update once more info is available.
Thanks!

I sent off a used P01 I’d bought at a gun show. Looked new barely used. Had issues and called CZ USA. They asked me to send it in, and shipped a brand new one back to me.
How’s that for customer service!
