Just looking at some of my stuff I noticed a Z marked on the trigger guard of my 54 CZ52, what does this signify? the gun looks unissued, aside from the 50 rds I pu through it. It has a refurb date of 96 0n the other side, none of the usual peened "accuracy dots" on the slide. Also just out of curiosity I have 2 CZ52's, both had the pin walk out of the slide stop the first time I fired them, easy fix (staked the pin) but why would they rearsenal a pistol with a pin that would walk. Seems to me it would not be an ideal situation to have your pistol freeze up after one mag in a heated moment. Any one else have this happen. Both pistols shot bad groups initially but tightened up considerably after I staked the pins, as the pin has no effect on the barrel it has me stumped. Just wondering if any body else had the same issues. I've never seen a post about the pins despite the number of these pistols sold, I ordered mine a few years apart so I know it is not a "batch" problem.

I got one of the first CZ52's imported to the US by Century arms. I don't remember when, but over 10-15 years ago.

After the first batches were imported, Century had a recall to Inspect / repair the decocker (I think). They stamped the Z on the guard to show it was inspected. This was not an original Czech mark. If you have a CAI imported CZ 52 without a Z on the trigger guard you might want to have it inspected. It was free.

One good thing about the recall, when I sent it back it had a broken firing pin from dry firing it (no one knew it was bad back then) . At the time there were few if any pins available and they replaced it.
