Same trigger pull ?
« on: February 04, 2019, 06:47:20 AM »
Ready to order a SP01 tacticle or maybe the SP01  im courious if the trigger pulls are the same between the safety model an the tacticle model. ?  Also depending on how things feel when it gets here ill more than likely be getting a trigger kit, sights,  etc..  will the tacticle model be harder to get parts for and work on  due to decocker ??

I own the Safety version. Never shot the SP-01 tactical. However, I do own the P-01 and the PCR. Both have the decocker. I've installed Cajun Gun Works parts on all 3 and have done polishing of the action on all as well.

You can get the same parts for both the safety and the decocker. Both are similar to work on. The decocker is a little harder since the sear has more parts and you have to use a slave pin to remove it in one piece where the safety sear can come out in one piece.

You can get both to have a really nice pull weight and smooth action. The safety version you can convert to SAO and put a flat trigger if you pleae. You can NOT do that to the decocker version.

I think which you get has more to do with which manual of arms you prefer. I personally like the decocker manual of arms over the safety. I prefer to carry with a round chambered and the hammer down than with it cocked and safety on. You can do this easily and safely with a decocker. You can with the safety version but there is always a risk of an AD if you drop the hammer. But again, this is my preference and really depends on what you plan on doing with the gun. YMMV.

If it's a range toy/night stand gun, I would say get the safety version. It's a little easier to work on and you have the option to go SAO if you ever choose. Sounds like you're after the best trigger action possible and it will be hard to beat the safety version converted to SAO.

Hope this helps.

Tacticle testicals.



 ;D



Sorry, had to.

I think where the difference is really noticeable is when you compare the manual-safety Shadow...which has no firing pin block....to the SP-01 or Tactical.  Without the firing pin block and lifter, there's a more crispness to the break as it doesn't have that little extra 'nudge' at the end where it has to lift the firing pin block.  As has been mentioned, the SP01/Tactical can be tuned and part-upgraded to make it very nice, but also with certain disconnectors you'll always have a shorter rest with the Shadows, whereas the Tactical in particular needs some distance during reset to clear the decocker.

But that sort of difference may only really matter if you're looking into competition guns.  Also as mentioned, the decocker models are a real pain to work on because of the whole slave pin, etc.

Stock or with equal work done, the SP-01 and SP-01 Tactical will have basically identical triggers. (I use the word basically because obviously any two guns may vary slightly from the factory due to tolerance stacking, etc.)
