    anyone pick up a Jericho from Classic Firearms? They are police trade ins and they look pretty good for the money. I cant find one local, PSA had a few. the price is right and they look good on their site, but I'd love to inspect one before buying. I'm in SC so got to stay in state or pay the transfer. I'm interested in the DA/SA brushed stainless. For anyone that wants to build a good target gun, they do have some in SA. From what I can tell, CZ parts should interchange(please correct if I'm wrong)

    Generally speaking, CZ parts are slightly different from their clones (Jericho, Tangfolio) and don't fit. There may be a part or two that is interchangable, but don't count on it. Some parts may be modified and fitted.
    Specifically about the Jericho, they use a larger diameter roll pin in some places that CZ uses a solid pin. Assuming everything else about the part is identical, the hole in a CZ part would have to be drilled out to fit the Jericho.
    Interestingly enough, in the early years of production, IMI (now IWI) subbed the manufacture of Jerichos out to Tangfolio. So, as a complete and utter guess (and I cant stress that part enough), you may have better luck with Tangfolio parts, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Thanks for the info, I was curious about this. I wonder if spring kits from CGW would work?

    Since Im not overly familiar with the 941 (Im a CZ guy), I had to consult the 941s parts diagram lol.
    Just by looking at the diagram, Im 99% positive the mainspring and the firing pin block plunger spring will fit. It appears that the firing pin is designed a little different and the fp spring may be a different length. The fp spring from the 3 spring kit *may not* fit.
    The main and FPB plunger springs will help the da a lot and the sa a little. If the firing pin spring really doesnt fit, I honestly dont think it will be a big deal. Just shoot it a lot to verify reliability before trusting life to it.

    Yup, Bibi needs to pay his lawyers so expect more pistols on the way.

    Kings has two models and are also OOS. https://www.kingsfirearmsonline.com/

    I may very well be wrong but I think the Canik/Tristar pistols have the greatest compatability out of all the clones. Honestly you might be better off shopping for a used CZ. I just bought a CZ 75BD Police with Dawson Sights, Alumium grips and what feels like CGW spring kit (havent checked) for $425 after shipping and transfer.

    I have a couple of these from Classic. They were in very good shape, including the magazines, just very dirty. Haven't shot them yet but have a dozen different brands / bullet weights to try this weekend.

    Bought a couple CZ75B mags from Midway that fit perfectly and hold the slide back just like the included mag. First impressions are: very happy with what I received, interesting design, easy to clean, good fit and finish, smaller than I imagined, and good weight.

    Sorry I didn't see this thread sooner @David Hall

    Gotcha. The only reason I said anything is most folks I know would rather have a CZ than a clone.

    If I can find one in person to inspect, the price is right for a great beater gun

    There is a group at the Charlotte gun show that had them, and always whatever the guys at Classic are pimping at the time. They are few tables over from @cubrock

    I handled them. They were definite users, but solid and surprisingly heavy and bulky.

    I got a chance to handle a new 941 this past weekend, I was surprised how heavy it was
