    Cajun Gun Works is offering an extended firing pin to be used with 15 pound or less mainsprings. This is a real bonus for those of us who want a light smooth double action pull. :D

    I picked one up due to an occasional need to pull the trigger twice to get it to fire with a trigger job and light springs have installed it and neeed more time to go shooting to verify to solved my issue. maybe by next weekend too busy with fathers day this week

    Went to the range and had no misfires with cheap ammo so all looks good with the extended pin on my 97B 40 rounds 10 yards offhand

    Nice shooting. I have a bunch of European primers which tend to be hard to dent properly and it works with them too.

    Running the CGW extended firing pins and 11.5 lb hammer springs on a pair of
    SP01 Tacticals I use for USPSA competition. 100% reliable.

    I would call Cajun Gun works firing pin a standard length firing pin. The one that comes on CZ-75B's is short. Just hold you empty CZ 75 straight up and drop a pencil down the barrel whit the erasure on the firing pin and pull the trigger. The pencil hardly move. so there is no chance of it failing California's drop test.

    I put David's extended firing spring and got both the combat and target hammer spiring to go with it. Using the light target spring it is only guaranteed to fire Federal primers. The combat spring is guarantee to pop any cap including NATO rifle primers. With the lightest spring it will light every thing I have but I have to pull the trigger on my CZ 75BD a second time on 1 out 20 rounds of a box S&B ammo and all the S&B primers look like weak strikes.

    I sure had to try a lot of ammo to find a primer hard enough that Cajun Gun Works light spring with their longer firing pin wouldn't ignite the primer every time.

    I think those were the 3d and 4th failure to fire in nearly 5,000 rounds. The other 2 were due to the recoil spring being too heavy for the slide to come back far enough on Hornaday's lightest Critacl Defense load when I let the gun get dry and dirty after 1,500 rounds with minimal lubrication.

    That CZ-75DB is the most reliabl e thing I've seen
