Re: Firing Pins on CZ52
I don't know whether the firing pins on the 9mm batch were aftermarket or original. The original pins do have a reputation for breakage, as early as THE FIRST TIME you dry fire it, so it must not be done even once. As long as you fire with a round or a snap cap chambered, the pins on these can last for a nominal time. I have seen extra firing pins priced from $10 to $30, but I do not know if some of these are milsurp take-offs or not. I personally would not bother to spend $10 on an extra milsurp pin that was just as brittle as my original. Might as well get a replacement that will stand up to dry firing. So if you do buy a pin, ask what its breeding is.
As I've said before, these guns also had a problem with the decocker firing the gun. Those imported to us lately are supposed to have been "armory serviced" to correct this somehow, but I'd always point the gun in a safe direction while decocking in case of an AD, at least until you know your gun's habits. Better yet, carry chamber empty and don' t use the decocker. That's what I prefer to do.
