Disassemble CZ-50


Post by MarkItZero »

Just got a CZ-50 and it's beautiful. The nicest surplus gun I've ever seen. Not sure it was ever issued or has ever been fired.

Anyways wanted to take it apart to clean away cosmoline and to just familiarize myself with the gun. I can't get the slide off. I hold the release and pull back the slide and it just doesn't lift up and separate from the frame like in all the videos. Really frustrating. Anyone have any tips or tricks I should try?
