    You just cut along that line with an exacto-knife and install one from a Pico.

    The only thing that I don't like about my Nano is it was made in the communist occupied state of Maryland. They've since fixed that error though.
    We now live in a lawless era where laws no longer apply to government officials.

    Ive put both on the clock and its always faster to hit the slide release. certain slides being low profile are harder to manipulate as well

    No, you go trade it in.
    If it ain't broke it ain't mine.

    Yeah the thing that makes most CZ’s so great is also one of its biggest draw backs for some people who tend to have issues charging them.

    That’s why there’s Cajun gun works or the CZ custom gun shop if you have the coin.

    Yep I’ve got a shadow 2 and a tanfoglio stock 2 and they are harder to manipulate than a Glock. They are also faster to manipulate from the front serrations and with an underhand grip

    Yes my cz’s -shadow 2 and 75b high polish (slippery) aren’t as easy as a Glock to rack. I tend to somehow get help from the rear sight when racking the shadow.

    I have a Keltec P32 and I did a "fluff and buff" on it and it runs perfect 100% of the time. I run both FMJ Round nose and Critical Defense hollow points.
    Or he could follow the manufacturer directions:

    " Hold the pistol firmly in the shooting hand but do not touch the trigger. Keep
    the pistol pointed in a safe direction. With the other hand grasp the top of the
    slide and pull the slide to the rear as far as it will go (see Figure 2, below). Use
    care to not place any part of your hand in front of the muzzle (see “Slide
    Retraction Warning,” p. 16). When released, the slide will fly forward to strip
    the top cartridge from the magazine and chamber it. The hammer is
    automatically cocked by the motion of the slide."


    Nowhere in the LCP manual is the term "slide release" used. But slide stop is, several times. As in the photo, showing the parts:

    Automatic last round "Hold Open / Slide Stop"
    allows the slide to be locked to the rear to
    positively view the cartridge chamber. The hold
    open is spring loaded downward so it is released
    by pulling the slide slightly rearward.

    Hmmmm.

    No gun has a slide release. they are called slide stops,
    This is just as bad as calling a mag a clip.
