    I need an answer from somebody who can clearly explain this to me in detail. I've carried my cz 75b for some time now. I understand the b model is firing pin block, so its " drop proof". So one in the chamber hammer down, or full cocked and locked? I guess I just don't understand how this block works. I know I sound confusing, but somebody straighten me out.

    The block normally stops the firing pin from hitting the primer unless the trigger is pulled intentionally.

    The trigger moves a couple parts that clear the way for the firing pin.

    That's what I thought. I couldn't find anything online that was clear on the operation of it. Some even made it sound like they were considering the manual safety as the fp block. But I clearly see that's wrong.

    I understand basic fp block function, I just really wanted to understand mine a little more in depth. I've got people that try to argue that I shouldn't carry a cz 75 condition one because there is no block. But there is. I just like to know evey detail before I debate with folks.

    Back when I had used a CZ in IPSC, Condition 1 was the only acceptable way to have it in the holster when told to make ready.
    There was not a safe way to put the CZ in Cond 2 (according to the RO's there).
    But that was with the original CZ-75.

    I have not looked at a CZ since. The only reference I can think of is the owners manual.
