I polished the hammer strut on my 85C when I was following the guide, but I'm a little hesitant to try and smooth it out completely. Are you guys just using a few passes with a file? Or sandpaper?

I used a Dremel with a sanding wheel to change the shape. Then finished it with 400,800,1500 grit sand paper.

I'd call up CZC and ask if they'll sell one that they've don't.

Tok,

Has there been a noticeable difference in the trigger pull between the rounded strut and stock?  Anything measurable or just smoother?

It smoothed out the DA considerably. The smoothness can make the DA pull feel a bit lighter but i do not believe that it reduced the DA pull weight measurably in my case. If anything a few ounces. It is tough to consistently measure that little difference in the DA.

I agree. It makes the pull smoother. Doubt it lowers the pull weight. For me, I don't care if it's 6.5# as long as it's smooth.

smoothing in this specific area definitely smooths things as out as the hammer spring is compressed. Easy upgrade with a bit of time and some polish/dremel.

Thanks for the pictures- yeah rounding the main spring strut will decrease/polish the  surface scrubbing against the main spring.
That  suppose to help with DA

Thanks for the pictures and the advise on HOW TO. This something I never would have considered. Now I have weekend project.

I didn't realize this was a thing. Has anyone done a before/after A/B test?

I noticed, a few months back, that one of my CZ's made a series of clicking noises when thumb cocking the hammer, as the hammer neared full cock.  With my ear to the gun I could tell it was at the back of the frame.

Hammer spring coils "skipping" past rough spots on the hammer strut/spring guide.

Since then I've started polishing the corners of the hammer spring guides when I take one apart.

Not sure if the corners "wear" the inside of the spring coils or not, over time.

Not sure how much it actually would decrease double action trigger pull, if any, but it just seems like it would be a good idea.

i think i have the same problem (shadow2). i have uploaded video to YT so you can see. what i do next? polish hammer strut?

From the video it looks to me like the the hammer spring is shifting as the hammer is cycled. You might try rotating the spring too see if it changes anything or even turning it over. If that dose not remedy the sound i suggest adding a few drops of lubrication to the spring if you have not already done so. I am unclear of polishing the hammer strut will change anything but it is wroth a shot.

Let us know how it goes, we all learn from this stuff.

thanks.

i've tried to rotate and turned it over, added more lubrication. it's much better now but still i can hear spring clicikng.
hammer strut has a few dents, maybe that is the problem. i'll try to polish that when i have time and let you know what results are.

UPDATE:
polished hammer strut and added some more grease to it. no clicking :D
