I do believe that the UMC is all or at the very least a big part of the problem. It is notorious for being underpowered.

Not going into battery...chamber might be a bit tight...could have junk under the extractor.

My 75b had similar hiccups during the first 500 rounds. After that it shot flawlessly for another 30k or so.

The guns are hand fit...sometimes you have to shoot them to break them in. I don’t believe in break in for modern guns like a current sig or glock that have high precision cnc mim or polymer parts. CZ’s however are fit tight by hand. What would be unacceptable on a p226 during the first 500-1000 rounds is the norm for cz.

Change the ammo...try shooting some really hot stuff through it like underwood or even fiochi. Or since it’s a defensive ccw gun find a deal on some bulk +p JHP like Speer gold dots or Winchester rangers.

Shoot it until the rails are polished to a nice shine. If all else fails CZ has excellent customer service, but nothing you have described so far is out of the norm. It’s not ideal, but it’s also quite common given the tight tolerances and manufacturing processes CZ uses.

Remington ammo is garbage.

This is for the OP.

Have you posted any of this on one of the large CZ forums? I’m curious what they would say.

Yes I did. Got 50/50 replies. Half said they'd be pissed and theirs with x thousand rounds through them look better. The other half said they all look like that and just go shoot/enjoy it. Besides the whole not working thing, not sure if I should be pissed or accept that's what they all look like.

I had resigned myself to if it shoots, wear is internal and the outside looks perfect so who cares. Now with it not going into battery I've got yet another choice, try to shoot it til it's 'broken in'or send it back now.

Damn, I've always had such good luck with guns, this is so very disappointing, especially giving how much I like the looks and feel. At least it's super accurate...
