CZ 97BD Issue

I have read on multiple forums about putting a drop of Loctite on the Loaded Chamber Indicator screw – as they have a nasty habit of backing out – then the LCI assembly slides forward and heads to parts unknown – Well . . . I didn’t and It did . . .

Glanced down at the pistol as it was heading from the holster to the night stand and I realized it was missing – oops . . .

So I ordered the LCI “delete plate” from CZCUSTOM.COM – then proceeded to find my itty bitty tube of blue Loctite and patiently awaited the arrival of the part . . .

If you look at the part from the under side – you see a roll pin – you need to either “gently” flatten it with a punch or file it down a tiny bit at a time if it is sticking out too far – you want to achieve an almost interference fit as the plate slides into place . . .

And then just a little Loctite on the threads – BLUE NOT RED – you may want to remove it some day – and start with the smallest METRIC Allan wrench you have – that will more than likely be the right one – I could not find a torque spec for the screw – use common sense – seriously – using Loctite and as tiny as the screw is – think inch pounds of torque – and yes if I could have found spec’s for it I would have used my inch pound torque wrench . . .

Screwed in – snugged down . . .

All the excess Loctite cleaned up – ready to go back in service – the Loctite should set up in about 20 minutes and be completely cured in 24 hours . . .

Have all you folks been nice ? . . . What are you hoping to get from Santa this year??

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
