I just got a CZ-52. I'm very happy with the overall condition of the pistol, and it is surprisingly accurate. The one problem I've found is that the pin that holds the slide stop lever in place walks out under recoil. I have to keep my thumb on it to prevent it coming out completely.

Is this common? It doesn't look like the pin is broken off. How are these pins supposed to be retained?

Which finish is your CZ52?

It looks like a park type finish. Dark gray in color.

That's interesting. Most of the parkerized ones have not been rebuilt. Most of the pins walking out have been associated with the blued ones.

How many dots are on top of your slide?

I'm not sure I know where to look for the dots, but I don't see any. The serial number is on the top of the slide, just in front of the rear sight. Nothing else on the top.

I found a website that details the history of the CZ52 rebuild process. It said that the pistol should have "VOZ" stamped on it if it has been rebuilt. Mine has "VOZ 80" on it. I'm guessing that means it was arsenal rebuilt in 1980.

Should I just try to peen the pin a little bit to keep it from walking? Is there a more "official" fix recommended.

THis is a common problem. An automatic center punch should be able to peen it enough to keep it in.

One theory on the dots is there is one for each rebuild. The VOZ 80 stamp does explain why you have a pin walking out though.

Mostly see it on the blued guns with several dots on the slide.

The center punch did the trick. It's good to go now.

Thanks.

Had this same problem - any pistol I have to peen to get it to function gets sold...
