Wierd C100 problem
« on: December 22, 2019, 04:12:00 PM »
My C100 shot very well at the range yesterday - really liked it - but towards the end it stovepiped.  I was using Tula which has been good in my CZs, and I remember another stovepipe early on, so I took out the extractor and cleaned then decided to put a Wolf 10% + CZ extractor in.  This baby was stiff and I needed to put it in a vice to get it in.  Weird thing is that my all BRASS dummy rounds don't function, but the Tipton's do.  Is the extractor springs for the CZ different than the C100/Canik???

Thanks.

(The C100 trigger is now very good after some work and a slightly lighter hammer spring).  Very accurate.

But another question: is the beavertail more curved up like the P01 on the newer C100s?

I've not had to do any Extractor Work to the TriStar Pistols, but then again, I only have one, a T120.

I have replaced Extractor Springs on a number of Cz75's and Tanfoglio Pistols with the Wolff Extra Power Extractor Springs.
Those Springs do come a bit over=sized so they can be used in the Cz97B's as well.

In the Cz75's and Tanfoglio based Pistols, I did have to trim one coil, for proper fit and function.

Not a fan of Tula Ammunition here, but it probably beats throwing rocks with a slingshot.

Tula and Wolf have proven accurate, reliable, and relatively clean in my SIGS and CZs.  They even run well in my stepped chambered German guns, so saving 15-20% is well worth it.  Beats BB.

Russian ammo made by Barnual is usually OK in my guns...but Tula, not so much.  Change ammo first and work on the gun only if that doesn't fix the problem.  9mm brass ammo has gotten so cheap I rarely use steel case any more.... no matter what brand.  And always 124 grain, never 115 grain.  Just my preference, but I get the most reliability that route.

I agree, I stay away from steel ammo too. And you can collect your once fired brass for reloading :)

I went ahead and took a coil off the ES and I think I'll be OK.  Didn't want to start a steel cased thread.  I've had a stovepipe in another gun with BB, so I'm not worried about the ammo.  Generally, I think Wolf/Tula is better than most brass cased ammo, and again 15-20% cheaper.  I don't reload so this is key.
