Trigger slap on CZ75B

I have a pretty new CZ75B with some pretty bad trigger slap. Is there any way I can take care of this myself without going to a smith? I'd like to learn how to do it. It's not so much the money or convenience factor.

trigger slap

The easiest way to cure the problem would be to trade it in on a CZ 85 combat. The next easiest would be to call CZ-USA and ask if the overtravel adjustable trigger for the CZ 85 combat is available for purchase and if it would fit a 75B model ( I'm fairly sure that it will) then trade triggers out. The third easiest would be to drill or drill and tap your existing trigger and install a small roll pin (filed to the correct length) or an overtravel screw (adjusted to the correct length). If it were me I'd try calling on the availability and compatibility of the 85 combat trigger.

Thanks Alaskee. I've spoken with the smith at CZ USA before and he was a nice guy. I think I'll change it out for the CZ85 trigger.

What do you meant by slap, overtravel?

The trigger rebounds after ignition and hits my index finger. After a dozen or so magazines it kind of takes the shine off firing what is an excellent pistol.

I've experienced this too. Not sure what causes it, but the 85C's overtravel stop definitely doesn't fix it. I have a 75B and an 85C, and they both give some amount of slap.

Trigger slap? You have a gun that doesn't approve of the way you shoot it? Does it require that you load cartridges facing backwards in the magazine?
Guns cause crime like spoons cause Rosie O'Donnell to be fat!
