... lacks a thumb catch, and that irks me more than a hair. Is there anyone that makes a replacement magazine catch with one on it, or could I have one brazed or silver soldered onto it?

I owned a CZ52 for a while and was bothered by the lack of a useable slide release. I found one here:

That being said, it only lasted a few weeks and then the extended part snapped off. Don't know whether it was bad design or bad luck. It looked like it should have worked fine, but did not last. It also required some mods to the grips requiring a little Dremel work. Might be worth a look. BTW, when it snapped off it just functioned like the original and did not affect the operation of the gun.
