    anybody know how to change em? got a link or something? i replaced my cz52 barrel with a federal 7.62x25 threaded barrel, but i hear that the rollers on the federal barrels are weak so i bought some spare rollers and cant figure out how to swap em out. i'm also having trouble replacing my firing pin because i bought a model that is a heavy competition model pin and the instructions vaguely say i need to modify the extractor with a file, but i might just exchange it and get a normal hardened firing pin. any advice on either modification would be helpful though, i know a few of you guys have cz52s, somebody must have done this or know how to do it.

    what kind of rollers did you get? makarov.com sells the Harrington Rollers which are supposed to be pretty good

    link to competition firing pin? does it help the trigger pull and allow relatively safe dry fire?

    cz parts

    i have the cz52-3 model. i havent installed it because i'm not quite sure how to modify the extractor, but its supposed to help with trigger pull and it is hardened so that dry firing shouldnt damage it. thats why i got it. if you want one i'll sell you mine, since i'm probably going to get one that i wont have to mod the extractor to make it fit, like maybe the cz52-2, but that one might also require me to file the extractor, maybe i'll just get the hardened steel one or take it to a gunsmith since i do want the trigger pull lowered. hope that helps.

    I prolly won't buy yours as i don't really need the heavier recoil spring, but it's good to know that Mak.com is stocking the parts now. I know as of about 4-6 months ago, they weren't.

    I think for what it is and how much it costs, its fine by itself. Maybe replace the firing pin with a hardned one though
