SP01,, need advice plz...
« on: February 05, 2019, 10:21:09 AM »
Heres the deal,  as some of my recent post say im going to buy a SP01 ,, my lgs has the SP01 tacticle suppressor ready in urban grey and after holding it and pulling the trigger im in love the da/sa is so much nicer than my 75 compact ( way better)  but i dont really need the suppressor set up or the color and the price is kinda high compared to some online places ,, infact i could save about $100.00 ordering a plane black SPO1 tact. ,,  whats driving me crazy is worring if the orderd SP01 is gonna feel as nice and smooth  as the one at the shop or will i end up with a trigger like the 75 compact  ??  if thats the case ill spend the extra $$ ,, As far as i know the one at the shop is stock and does have the OEM hammer and springs and at $680.00 i highly doubt its had any work done to it  (but man it was nice) ,,  having never felt any other SP01's i have no way of knowing if thats the way they feel out of the box or not (shop had no others)  having a higher price point they have to be better than a OEM 75 compact right  ?? .... Have to make a decision soon or im gonna end up in the crazy house   :o

In the grand scheme of things....what's $100?

At the same time if you aren't happy, a few dollars worth of CGW springs can get rid of a harsh DA.

I have found factory CZ 75 variant triggers to be luck of the draw. There dose seam to be some improvement on the odds with more recently manufactured CZs. I have also found that 500-1000 dry fire cycles or live rounds can smooth out a factory CZ trigger significantly.

It may depend on your definition of "better trigger". What part of the trigger pull do you prefer?
Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

I have bought enough CZ's to realize the trigger is a crap shoot and even the good ones can be better. They're worth a little time and money for a great trigger though.

Congrats- good to hear the LGS was willing to work with you for your business.

I have a SP01T. Love it

Agree with other posts, trigger smoothness can be the luck of the draw on OOTB CZs.  Good luck

Its outstanding that the your LGS worked with you on the pricing; while many online retailers have better prices, an LGS will usually have better customer service...or at the minimum, you are dealing with a person face-to-face rather than via phone or thru a keyboard!

Enjoy your CZ!

  Hiya and glad you found it and saved a franklin. I didn't know which "OEM 75 compact" has the less than stellar trigger,so what OEM ? I've heard it referred to springs before. And if you liked the trigger in the store , make a mental note about the trigger then first few weeks and compare after its broken-in. Be well.

Was the 91190 75 compact,  not terrible but not all that great but theres plans to place an order with Cajun for some goodies,,,    as far as the SP01 tacticle im very happy with it however the trigger is not as great as i remembered  it to be but its still a nice gun,  the one thing im not happy about is the cerakote ( urban grey)   that was sprayed on the rails both slide and frame had the paint on them and there was a couple spots that had high areas where the slide was rubbing on the paint,,  i spent all day yesterday getting it off and polishing the rails , slide is smoooth now but it took some time to get the cerakote off ,,
Haven't shot it yet due to hi winds  but will in the next few days ,,  hopefully ....

With the Suppressor ready you get Tritium raised sights (+50-80$ upgrade), Threaded barrel (+180 upgrade)  over the normal Black Tactical version. Thats $250 more extras for a price difference of $60-$100 bucks depending on who you buy from.

You did great and won't regret this purchase! Check the thread protector OFTEN!!

You can install a cheap o-ring on the barrel a couple threads from where they end, then screw the thread protector on it so that it squeezes onto/over the o-ring.  It'll hold that thread protector in place sort of like a lock washer.

I put them on both mine a couple years ago and neither has tried to work loose.

Darn, just tried to find that little container of them I bought at Lowes and can't find'em.  Sorry.  I don't know the size off the top of my head.  I do know that there are different diameters.  What I mean is the diameter of the material.  You can't get some that will fit around the barrel just fine but the thread protector won't really slip over the outside of them to lock it in place.  It'll screw up against the o-ring but it's better if it screws sort of up/over the outside of the o-ring.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Your not kidding about the thread protector , just racking the slide loosens it up. I thought i had it on there pretty tight but no. I had to take it off while shooting,,  the good news is this thing is a shooter i was impressed at the accuracy out of the box makes me look good at the range ,, ive since polished the rails and everything i could get to without taking it apart but have plans on a kit after i get my compact done. Compact is completely tore down for polish and waiting on kit to come in ....
