Hello all!
      I posted about issues I was having in the new member section, and didn’t realize there was a sweet CZ 100 section. I recently got a CZ 100 which I always wanted because of a old anime I loved since I was a kid. I went to go shoot it and was having constant light primer strikes with multiple types of ammo. Stripped the slide and no parts were missing or installed incorrectly, and was clean in the firing pin channel. Any suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated, I cannot find much for spare parts anywhere online as far as mainsprings. Have reached out to multiple vendors and no luck. Thanks for checking out my post and for any reply! Loved the pistol when it fired  ;D and the trigger really didn’t bother me  O0

Welcome and congrats on your CZ 100.

As for the light strikes, have you tried comparing the stock main spring to other CZ pistols to see if you can find a comparable substitute?

Here’s a website that sells them and shows a parts breakdown of your gun. However, the mainspring is out of stock.

Hey George16! Thanks for the reply! I did check Numrich and about everywhere else I could think of trying to find a replacement. I was thinking the same as you on a possible replacement from a different pistol that would work but couldn’t find any info. I contacted cz custom, cz USA, and Cajun, got responses but all that was said basically is that they do not sell parts for it. I noticed apex gun parts has complete slides available, and might go that route for all the replacement parts it would supply along with the mainspring. But it is also a spendy buy for a possible fix. Anyways, thanks for the reply again, hopefully I can get it worked out. I will keep updating as I find things out. Love the way the pistol feels in my hand, didn’t think I would like it as much as I do, even though it won’t fire often  ;D
