Correct CGW spring upgrades for guns?
« on: January 09, 2019, 03:26:38 PM »
Noob here, so I'm sure this is an easy question.  I have 2 CZ's that I would like to upgrade and wondering if this is what I need.

First, Shadow 2 (bone stock) and looking to put 54460 Ultra lite kit in it.  Gun is for range and not shooting comp as of now.  Also what is the advantage of the Floating Trigger Pin and or Trigger Return Spring being changed?  Normally shoot 147gr subs in 9mm if that matters?

Second, 75b Urban Gray Omega (bone stock).  Looking at either 54420 Ultra Lite kit or just SPGK1 spring kit.  Do I need the extended firing pin?  This gun will be run suppressed most of the time if that matters with 147gr subs.  Shooting with the S2, really can tell the difference in triggers and feel in these two.  Also, had several mag failures with FTF running suppressed, is there a mag upgrade spring?  Swapped and ran S2 mags in gun and no issues.


Will be getting the Tuner Pack of recoil springs with plan to use 13# in Shadow and 14# in 75b (because of suppressor).  Am I on the right track on upgrades?  I know that polishing will also help; but that most likely will be down the road.  I like to make one set of changes at a time in case there is an issue so I know where to look.
Thanks

I called CGW and they advised to get the Pro kit.  Is it that much better or just add the hammer and sear springs to above?  SRT is not a big deal since this is a range gun.

The floating trigger pin is reusable and easy to install/uninstall unlike the factory trigger pin which is formed into place by flaring the ends of the pin. To remove the factory trigger pin a starter punch is required while the floating trigger pin can be pushed out with a punch.

As far as what parts or package you need, it is really a matter of what you want to improve and how much you want to spend. I have gone with the Pro Package in my CZs but i wanted all of the improvements.

The Reduced Power Trigger Return Spring reduces the DA and SA trigger pull weight.

The extended Firing pin along with the Reduced Power Firing Pin Spring allows you to install a hammer spring lower than 15# without limiting you primer choice. It is also part of the Short Reset Kit. The Short reset kit consists of the extended FP and the short reset Firing Pin Block Lifter.

I think that the recoil spring tuners kit is a good idea, it allows you to tune the pistol to your liking.

Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)
