Title: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on June 21, 2011, 09:53:37 AM
Well, I was able to trade the Glock for a RAMI P. I was quite pleased with the way everything worked. It's a wonderful piece that feel like it will be much more fun to shoot than the Glock. I hope to take it to the range tomorrow.

Anyway, would I be correct in assuming that the P version can't have grips put on? I've seen great pics of the standard RAMI with fantastic grips, but there aren't any screws on the P.  :laugh:

I will post a pic or two when I get home. I thought I had them, but I must have left them in my other camera...

Thanks, Gents!

I have the RAMI P also and you are correct, you can not change out the grips on the P like you can on the alloy/steel RAMI. You do trade off a few oz on the P model and it is still a great subcompact.

The handle feels fine, although new grips would be nice. I got a Hogue "Jr" sleeve that looks nice and feels great.

My concerns now are the multiple FTFs I experienced yesterday. It was very un-CZ like, so there must be another factor. I''m hoping to shoot again tomorrow...

Have not experienced any FTF's at this point. I am using Magtech 115 full metal case. I order it at Bud's Gun Shop online and so far I have not found a better price for it than the $11.01 per 50 that they charge.

     Did you change ammo for any reason? if not then check the firing pin and all your springs including the hammer spring, I had a RAMI and put some different rounds through it and it worked just fine. But if there is anyone that can give you a dang good guess and or solution it will be CZ-RAMI-2075. He lives for RAMI's and Rugers, if he dosen't see this inside a day or so them send him a PM so he will see it first thing he signs on. I think it has something to do with the firing pin. or the spring.
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on June 22, 2011, 03:14:20 PM
I don't know much about firearms as yet, but it does seem spring-related. I'm not sure what the pin would do, but it's almost like (and I know this will sound stupid) that everything's too new. All the edges are sharp, the recoil spring is exceptionally firm, I can't even use the slide release when there is an empty mag in it. Also, I didn't have any problems until I was about 120 rounds into the session. Someone suggested that the gun just needed to be oiled. I suppose this is possible. I thought it sounded silly at first, but when I got it home to clean it everything was quite dry. And the guy at the range who suggested it is a CZ aficionado. Of course I recommended that he join us here.  :cheesy:

EDIT: I don't know if this is any indicator, but the bottom of the snapcaps  (the base of the casing where the extractor does it's thing) are all hammered and chewed up. Also, it won't cycle them reliably. This makes me sad, because my other 2 are golden and this is the one I had planned on being my EDC. I guess I still have some time before the license comes in, but still...

Post by: b5.5dan on June 22, 2011, 08:48:51 PM
I guess a lot of what I'm saying here doesn't make sense. I was manually cycling the snap caps through in order to see if I could tell what was preventing the cartridge from feeding. As many of you could have guessed, that didn't help. I will wait a couple of days before I send a PM to the gentleman on the board. Hopefully a thorough cleaning and a little more time will do the trick.

HI guys,

I'm not sure what problem you have there.

 Failure to feeda live round, or will it feed and chamber, but not fire?



I'm new to the RAMI P as well but have almost 9 years of EDC with this  beauty.

Post by: b5.5dan on June 23, 2011, 10:15:50 AM
Hey!
I'm sorry I've done such a poor job of explaining the problem. It will ALWAYS fire a round that has fed, but it fails to feed with regularity. Now I know why the guy I bought it from sold it. Thing is, I won't give up on it because I know it is something simple.

There is a notch on the extractor where it doesn't seem it should be. All I will say for now is that I gave it as good a cleaning as I could without having a decent set of punches to take it apart and a very good oiling. I'm taking her out today and we'll see what happens from there. I "think" I know someone locally who might be able to help me.
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: GhostWarrior on June 23, 2011, 11:51:46 AM
      OH! Now I understand! :cool: Ya sure, I do. no really OK well that is a horse of a whole nother color. Any chance it's only with hollow points or wadcutters? I had a CZ 75A actually that wouldn't feed hollow points or another for of truncated cone or wad cutter more than once or twice then the edge of the tip of the hollow point of the edge of the case itself allways caught the leading edge of the ramp and that was it. I had to clear and try again. So I sinply only use round nose ammo and not worry about it.

     However I have since learned that it may well have been the springs, in the Mag, or the slide itself, and possibly the ramp could use a polish and the whole pistol better oiled. I still only use FMJ round nose ammo but lots of folks have tried anyone of those fixes I mentioned and it's done wonders to end the Fail to Feed issue.

     If it's having the same fail to feed with anything you put in it, then possibly it either needs oil in someplace you missed? or the springs somewhere have issues.

     Now wasn't that helpfull? Am I good or what?  Are the Fail to Feeds consistant after the first 120 rounds? Say like 4 feed then the fifth one sticks? Or are the fail to feeds inconsistent as in they could happen back to back or once every 3 or 5 or 8 shot etc?
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on June 23, 2011, 12:46:16 PM
I think all of the .40 bullets I have seen have been flat-nosed. And the failures were very odd. I went 100 rounds with no problems, and then all of a sudden, wham. I'm not sure if they occur every x number of rounds. I think it just happens randomly. But as I say, I'm going to put her to work here in about 3 hours.

Also, I got some great Osama Bin Laden Zombie Targets  :laugh:
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on June 23, 2011, 04:51:03 PM
Update, as if anyone wanted one.  :cheesy:

Took her to the range with 4 different brands of carts; all different loads, JHP, FMJ, et al.
Probably had a 60% FTF rate. However, the gunsmith knows my mom's husband, and so he looked at her for me. He says the feed ramp needs to be polished, and that WILL (he said, not should but will) take care of the issue. Also, he'll do it for free. I know it's something I should be able to do by myself, but I might as well let him do it and watch.


So, I saved about $50 on the purchase, and will end up having to pay naught but some time to get it in working order. I'm a bit, well, "miffed" that the guy lied about the pistol in the ad, but I suppose no one would have purchased it otherwise. I just hope it really does solve the issue.

What I don't understand is my luck. I still believe that these are among the finest firearms available, yet I manage to pull the one that won't feed...  :angry:
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: GhostWarrior on June 23, 2011, 05:57:16 PM
     Not your luck that's the problem. You bought it used, the previous owner may have taken it apart and the fumble fingered the barrel and dropped it on something disagreable. You got a great pistol I believe for a good price, and you are getting it fixed for free. How much good luck do you want pazone?
Oh ya and I got to be right! You did need to have the ramp done.  :tongue:

True. I would like to look at it like this, I just want to shoot!  :cry: Soon enough... I can't take it in until next week, so I will just have to deal until then. It's only a week.

Oh ya and I got to be right! You did need to have the ramp done.  :tongue:
You were right, sir! Now that I look at it, I should have been able to see that the ramp needs to be changed. If I had a bit more experience I imagine I could have made the call. I will know for next time.
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: GhostWarrior on June 23, 2011, 11:29:22 PM
     No one could have guessed that was the problem without knowing what to look for and even knowing it could even be an issue. If you read back to what I posted you will see I mentioned a couple thing besides the ramp before I even mentioned the ramp. I simply got lucky on my 5Th suggestion and crowed about it, But I was wrong on the first 4. I have been shooting for years, and granted I am seriously out of practice I still remember some of the things to look for. But the point is that I have been a shooter for longer than you have been alive or close enough not to matter. There is a Huge amount to learn about shooting and weapons in general, so don't let someone like me con you into thinking we are "experts" cause that a whole boat load of fecal matter.

      IF he will let you then watch what they gunsmith does, read a much about shooting and repair as you can. I had at a minimum a dozen large papers back manuals/book on gun/pistol/rifle repair along with reloading tome's, before I got rid of them for being out of date and no longer into shooting. I wouldn't even put that collection of books up against some of the firearms libraries that some of our members have even today. By any standard you care to set I am a piker at firearms repair, and reloading and I have been doing it off and on for years.

     Never sweat the small stuff Sir. Learn what you can and or want to. get to know your personal firarms inside and out. Practice ever change you get. work on strengthening your hands and fingers (Especially your fingers) and never forget to practice shooting with your off hand allmost as much as your strong hand. and especially learn how to shoot with both eyes open. Do just hat and you will be a damn good and an above average shooter.

    I started this Forum so we could ALL learn something from each other, not to make folks think they are inadequate or lacking in any way. Every one of us started the same way you are. Taking baby steps to learn how to shoot, asking questions from anyone that will talk to us, and reading everything we could find, and when we had the money practicing at the range.. So just relaxe, you are not going to be a world class shooter or gunsmith over night and none of us that think we are were either despite what we choose to think or remember in our old age. Heck some of us barely even qualify as average shooters by today's standards. So you missed something, so the heck what?! Seriously if that the worse thing you miss while you are a shooter than you are way ahead of the pack.
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on June 23, 2011, 11:47:01 PM
Maybe this isn't the best way, but I usually shoot with both eyes open (I think I've seen it referred to as 'point shooting'?). Granted I have 6" groups, but last month they were 10"  :laugh: .
I do need to practice with the off-hand. I seriously need to look into reloading as well, since going to the range once a week is getting up there in cost.
Anyway, I can't wait to get the ramp polished and put her to work on my Taliban targets...  :laugh:

Update: Couldn't get hold of the smith, and I noticed some bulging on the frame. Just sent it back to CZ USA. $75 in shipping is pretty lame, but I will have a new (or at least fully-functional) pistol in 4 to 8 weeks...  :embarrassed:
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: GhostWarrior on July 01, 2011, 12:13:50 PM
     ya personally I think it is a bit lame since the RAMI P had/has some issues with bulging, which CZ says isn't a big deal but they will replace for free. I guess from there stand point the bulge is cosmetic and not mechanical, so instead of eating the entire cost of the replacement plus shipping they are splitting the shipping with the owner, That is ONLY A GUESS! I have no idea how they run their business not what or how the corporate decisions are made. Then again if it's not to late you try try doing the "Squeaky Wheel" thing and see if they are willing to oil the "Squeak" any.

    It's still a really fine weapon and I am thinking of possibly buying one for myself. Not sure how that's going to tract, since I have started my attempt at molding and casting my weapons so that more CZ Models are available to Holster and Grip makers. And that stuff ain't cheap. I am really tired of not finding Holsters for some of my weapons because they aren't "Mainstream CZ's" or simply are CZ's and there isn't "enough call for holsters" Ya Right. Well I'm going to fix that little problem one way or another.
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on July 01, 2011, 10:20:51 PM
I made the mistake of telling them that I bought it used rather than simply omitting that fact. Many people have sent in a RAMI P and received the alloy model in return. I am saddled with the at times unfortunate inability to lie.  :cheesy: I just can't wait to get it back, but a couple hundred rounds through it, and feel secure and confident in it. This is much better though. If I had taken it to the smith and the polish would have worked, I still would have always been waiting for it to fail. With this, confidence will come far sooner, I think.

Well, now that the pistol is at the doctor, what should I expect? How long until they get her sorted out and back to me?
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on July 11, 2011, 10:38:33 PM
UPDATE:
I sent the RAMI overnight to CZ USA on the 1st of July. I received an email today around 2pm MDT saying that the pistol has been handed over to FedEx and will be delivered back to me tomorrow afternoon. Now, I don't want to get too excited, lest they just decided that they couldn't honor the warranty and sent it back broken, but it sounds as though they inspected, repaired or replaced the pistol, and got it back in the post in 10 days.

CZ is pretty amazing. The finest pistols on Earth and customer service that fixes the rare mistake in less than a fortnight?! I can't imagine it gets much better than that!
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: GhostWarrior on July 12, 2011, 05:58:18 PM
      Like I wasn't guessing when I suggested that.  :cool: It had just been up for discussion a few times in the days preceding your question, so it seemed like a safe suggestion. Well to be honest, everything I have seen or heard any discussion about hollow points and or the cartridge edge catching on the ramp. Everyone and his grand,mother starts with get your ramp polished, if that doesn't work get back. It allways reminds me of calling a doctor at night and having him/her say "Take two aspirins and call me in the morning".  :grin:
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on July 12, 2011, 06:10:52 PM
So i got the pistol back. They "adjusted feed ramp and polished extractor.  And warranty is only for original owner." But they did the work anyway. I can't wait to try it out. I hope she's fixed...
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on July 12, 2011, 10:11:30 PM
Well, she's better but she's not right. I guess now I need to find some ammo she's happy with. I don't even know where to begin...

     Great picture, Weapon looks shiny, and the green and blue wrist band? You are someone you know an MP, or a special detail unit? Keep us informed on what you try feeding her, and have you tried different mags?
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on July 17, 2011, 10:16:01 PM
None of us are MPs; I just liked the colors so I made the bracelet.  :grin:
She fed a GREAT deal better last week. Probably 4 FTFs out of 200 rounds, and all of those were in the first 50 rounds. The feed ramp is all freshly polished and it made a big difference. I think she could use a little more polish, but I don't know. At this point I am torn between keeping her or selling her to either get a 75 Duty or a 97B. Another problem is that I just can't seem to enjoy the .40 S&W. I'm not sure what the next few months will bring, apart from a couple more pistols!

I should get (at least) one more rifle, but all of the CZ rifles are out of my price range at the moment.
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: GhostWarrior on July 17, 2011, 10:43:10 PM
       Shiny. Just wondered because those colors in that combination at least Used to be for Special Detail Units, and certain dress uniforms or shoulder whatscha ma call it's. I like the color choice. I really have to post pictures of the shoulder straps, wrist band, and Lanyard Angryvikingman made. Mine are Red and Black.

Yes... The 97B is HIGH on my list. And alas, the RAMI P is gone. I will leave it at that. I'm off .40 S&W AND poly frame firearms. But now I need another smaller pistol, and I would like a standard RAMI in 9mm. Unless, of course, I'm big enough to CC the 97B.  :cheesy:
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: CZ-RAMI-2075 on July 25, 2011, 12:58:11 PM
In my exprience, if you can't try out a 97B locally, look for a large framed Witness in 45 or 10mm.

The grip is only slightly smaller than the big CZ, or it was in my case.
(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb26/czrami/CZ97s/97fine.jpg)
Hakn Pek crafted me some slim line grips for both guns.
(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb26/czrami/CZ97s/97sale2.jpg)
They just became to big for me to carry around.

The HIGH NOON topless holster (horsehide) fit both guns very well.

You will LOVE they way it shoots!

IF the 97B or BD doesn't fit you right, the alloy framed RAMIs should do just fine.

The RAMI P in 9mm is one way to go.

a bit lighter than the alloy framed RAMI but equally as reliable in my book.

cheaper, too!

I'd like a 97BD for a house and range gun.

Too heavy for my bad back for me to carry, but still a nice goal for me to save for.

Same for that Dan Wesson GUARDIAN .45 ACP that would cost me twice as much.

I'm sure you will get that RAMI P someday.

Post by: RAMIfied on June 01, 2012, 08:29:27 AM
wohoo! finally got my license yesterday! NOT easy where i live. and the 25 FMJ bullets that i'm allowed to buy PER year.  :shocked:  i guess dry firing is my only option to get used to this gun. hihihi. anywho.
so i cleaned the gun yesterday after picking it up from the armourer's, will probably take it to the range sometime this month (with my 25 bullets) and see how it shoots.


QUESTION: racking the slide is REALLY hard, and so is manipulating the slide stop lever. is that normal? is it because the gun has never been fired? is the something i can do to improve that without firing it?
i'm well built so i know it's not a strength issue, my girlfriend can't even rake the slide or push the slide stop.
advice please
thanks!

Welcome to the Forum! 25 bullets a year? WTH?  :embarrassed:
Racking the slide is just aq bit stiff on those I'm afraid... Shooting would loosen it, but since you can't... You could contact Wolff Gunsprings for a low power replacement. THat should give you great success!
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: RAMIfied on June 02, 2012, 03:20:31 AM
thanks for the prompt reply!  :cheesy:
yeah 25, it's the law here, we can't buy cartridges without a permit issued from the police station and that's the limit for handguns. my license ends in July so i'll be able to at least shoot these 25 and get another 25 for protection. and we can't buy HP (FMJ only).
i had another question: now i'm COMPLETELY new to guns, i've read a lot but never actually manipulated one. the RAMI P i have feels very "plasticky", like if i apply moderate pressure the trigger guard bends a bit as does the grip bottom when the magazine is out. is that normal for all polymer handguns or just the RAMI P? cause from the material the polymer is mad out of it seems to me like the only thing keeping the slide in check are the front and rear inserts. is that how it always is?
thanks!

thanks will do, am checking it out now though so far can't find any springs for the RAMI, but will continue searching. will putting a reduced power spring affect the recoil or function of the gun in any adverse way?
Title: Re: My "New" RAMI P
Post by: b5.5dan on June 02, 2012, 03:35:00 AM
Where do you live, if you don't mind my asking?
I think that the feeling you feel is par for the polymer course. My RAMI felt like that, as did my Glock before I got rid of it. The poly is pretty amazing, and won't snap, break, or fall apart for anything. That said, after a couple hundred rounds to frame MAY start to bulge a little bit around the ejection port. This is normal but doesn't always happen.


When you think of a firearm, you think of a cold, hard, unforgiving piece of steel, right? So any movement can be unsettling. But with poly firearms it's a whole new ballgame. The upside is that if you can carry your firearm concealed (or even open) for a full day, you are saving 2 pounds from your hip. It makes a big difference. Personally I still prefer steel or alloy, but that's just me. You will like your RAMI. They are solid firearms. Especially if, as I suspect (or have read from your earlier posts  :laugh: ) if you got it in 9mm Para.


25 rounds a year...   :sad:
Come live in Utah. They give you a 500 round box of .22lr when you leave the hospital after your original birthday!  :laugh:

Hmm... I can't find any replacement recoil springs for the RAMI either. I guess I should have thought of that before I suggested it. Sorry 'bout that... Let me think... I wonder if a reduced-power subcompact Glock spring would work. We have several members here who are more knowledgeable on the topic than I. For now, just cycle the action and use snap-caps or other improvisations... I'll keep looking!

I think that the feeling you feel is par for the polymer course. My RAMI felt like that, as did my Glock before I got rid of it. The poly is pretty amazing, and won't snap, break, or fall apart for anything. That said, after a couple hundred rounds to frame MAY start to bulge a little bit around the ejection port. This is normal but doesn't always happen.


When you think of a firearm, you think of a cold, hard, unforgiving piece of steel, right? So any movement can be unsettling. But with poly firearms it's a whole new ballgame. The upside is that if you can carry your firearm concealed (or even open) for a full day, you are saving 2 pounds from your hip. It makes a big difference. Personally I still prefer steel or alloy, but that's just me. You will like your RAMI. They are solid firearms. Especially if, as I suspect (or have read from your earlier posts  :laugh: ) if you got it in 9mm Para.


25 rounds a year...   :sad:
Come live in Utah. They give you a 500 round box of .22lr when you leave the hospital after your original birthday!  :laugh:




LOL! Utah sounds like an interesting place!
I live on the other side of the world, in Tanzania which is in the eastern part of Africa.  :shocked:


thanks for the clarification on polymers cause i was worried there for a moment! but it does feel nice to hold and the SA trigger feels great.
i emailed them regarding the recoil springs and will look around. will ask at the gunshop as well. thanks again!  :grin:

I think we have a member here who actually makes springs. He may not make recoil springs, but he might know what would work

Wow...25 rnds a year? ouch!

I think you will love that rami.  I have one in 9mm and .40sw.  The .40 is a poly and after the 600 or so rounds I have thru it, I have no bulging issues like some have had.  One way to loosen up your recoil spring is rack the slide over and over.  Don't let it slam forward like you were cambering a round, you might cause other problems.  You might want to wear a glove as the slide can be pretty rough on your hand.  It will loosen up a bit that way.

okay, thanks for the advice guys, will work on it for sure till it loosens up, and also look for a replacement recoil spring if it doesn't work (since it'll take me 4 years just to get 100 rounds through it!)  :cry:

Dang! I won't go to the range without 200 rounds and a day in the desert requires ay least 1000. Rimfire included, of course  :laugh:

        Oh pasha! Anyone could forget to look for that as a problem. Most all CZ's have very few issues all in all when feeding them. But I have/had 75 Pre-B's for so long and they hate anything not FMJ that I simply think of that as the issue first thing. It's those simple things that can drive you nuts. :grin: If you polish the ramp on a 75 pre-B then it plays nice with most any kind of ammo, but if you don't oops. So no reason for you to have known that, the B models apparently fixed the majority of that issue when they were made or whatever. I have no doubt that I will ask about a problem that I'm having and it will be simple but something I didn't know about or forgot. Never sweat the small stuff. Everyone of us is here I think to pick up tips, ideas and help of some sort.

Ever since hearing about the RAMI from my friend the contractor, who by the way let me try out a 75 last year, I've been on the lookout for the RAMI BD model. I liked the decocker on my P226 and chose the decocker models of the 75 and P-01. Well a few months ago I finally aquired a CZ 2075 RAMI BD.


The grips were loose. I ended up getting a set of new G10 grips from the CZ web site that came with screws and spacers. When installing the new grips I found that the gun did not have spacers installed from the factory. I didn't try the spacers with the original grips but I want to bet they would have eliminated the looseness.


Anyway...all problems aside. I really like the RAMI. I like that the trigger feels just like the other two CZ's I have. With the RAMI I now have two carry weapons. The P-01 is good for days a heavier shirt or jacket with the IWB holster and the RAMI fits nicely in a front pocket.
