CZ Custom Conversion 75 Compact from 9 to 40
« on: November 11, 2019, 12:34:36 PM »
Is it practical to convert a CZ 75 Compact or P-01 to 40 S&W?  Can not locate a P-06 or one of the original 75 compacts in this caliber.  Hoping that it is possible to make this conversion. If any outfit can do it CZ Custom can.

Thanks.

   No Sir, this was covered in another thread just recently. A 9mm slides breech face is too narrow to except a 40 S&W cartridge case head. In some cases you can go from 40 to 9 with a barrel swap (an extractor is also required in some cases) but you can not go from 9 to 40.

   The available option is to look for a take off 40 S&W complete slide. These can be acquired in some cases directly form CZ Customs, if they do not have any on offer you can also hunt them down on the forums in some cases.
Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

Tok36,

Missed the other thread.  Will call CZ Custom and see if one is available.  Thanks.

CZ Custom does not have a compact upper in 40.  Contacting CZ USA to see if they have one, or at least a slide to build one.  Will keep looking.
