Kadet Conversion question
« on: February 03, 2003, 10:42:41 AM »
I know that you can get a conversion kit to take the regular CZ 75 from 9mm (or .40) down to a .22 practice weapon but ... if you get a .22 Kadet pistol can you get a 9mm barrel and slide assembly for that?
            I was leaning toward the Kadet as my next purchase, I want a .22 as my next acquisition. I like the Kadet for it's conventional control set and external hammer.
            Although I have a 9mm (Sig 228)  that I like, I would consider saving a little longer to get a CZ-75 as a second 9mm (full sized and all steel) and also get the .22 conversion kit.
            Or get the .22 Kadet and pick up a 9mm slide/barrel assembly.

I've been waiting for the more experienced members to answer your question, but since no one else has responded, here is my $.02.
            I checked the CZUSA website and they don't list the 40 or 9mm slide and barrel as available parts. I suspect that you could special order them from CZ USA, but that is only a guess.  
            I think than overall,  it would be more expensive to try to get the capability you want this way than to go the usual route of buying a complete 9 or 40 gun and then adding the Kadet kit.  Obviously, the supply line is set up to treat the kadet as the add on option, not the other way around.
            I also have a Sig 9mm in addition to my CZ's and find I get different enjoyment out of shooting each gun. If I were you, I'd get the CZ of my choice and then add the Kadet....Wait, that's what I just did!!! Best

From what I have seen, the 9mm's are priced cheaper than the dedicated Kadet .22's, so it is probably cheaper to get the 9mm and buy the Kadet conversion, rather than the other way around (even if you could).

A while back FAC ( was advertising either CZ75 parts kits or incomplete guns very cheap. They still may have a few.  I don't know how interchangeable Tangfolio parts are, but they do sell complete top ends for caliber conversions.  HTH :)
