Safety/Sear Repair
« on: January 09, 2018, 08:53:15 AM »
As a follow-on to my post on Dec. 27 regarding my 83 safety engaging with the hammer down, and the great help I received:  It appears that this happens due to wear.  The safety has about 1/2mm slop or play to the left/right, as does the sear.  This slop allows the safety to move to the left and the sear to move to the right enough so that the dent or tab on the safety slides around the edge of the sear and the safety engages.

One of the first parts I want to replace is the sear pin.  Question:  if I remove the sear pin, will the sear/spring/auto safety remain aligned or will I have to go through the dreaded sear reassembly process?

If they do become misaligned, then are the 2 opposing pins (part # 23) aligned such that I can remove the right pin, insert a slave pin (like a toothpick) and push out the sear pin, keeping everything aligned, and then use the new sear pin to push out the toothpick?

Sear spring reassembly process is not so dreadly... just you need know WHAT to do and find on internet HOW to do... average hand-minded shooter can do it in minutes.

I cannot count how many times that webpage saved my sanity, helping to dis- & re- assemble a CZ82/83.  http://leolani.net/relics/cz82.html

That sear spring video is also worth a bookmark!

Take your time, have lots of patience (sometimes a particular re-assembly step takes two or three tries), and work in a clean area in case pins or springs try to get away from you, and the job can be done.

Thanks, guys.  Yes, these are great videos.  Very helpful.  I am trying to identify the parts I need to replace and was trying to find the easiest way to do this.
