IDPA vs defensive carry packages
« on: February 06, 2019, 03:42:52 PM »
Thinking of putting in one of the kits that are offerd for my compact,,   is there a big difference between the two as for as trigger pull  ??  Price is not much more from one to the other,,   how low in pounds does the idpa actually go  ??
Mainly use my compact for range ,  carry and home...

The biggest difference in the two packages, components wise is the IDPA package comes with the Reach Reduction Kit with the flatter trigger. This is not recommended by CGW for a defensive weapon.

The IDPA with bring the pull weight of both the DA and SA down lower than the Defensive package. The site states that the  SA pull weight will be reduced under 3 lbs on the former and 3 lbs 8 oz on the latter.

I strongly recommend you give the guys at CGW a call to ask them which package is best for you. They are extremely helpful and will give you honest help. They won't try to upsell you the wrong stuff.

The two kits I see that are similarly priced are the 75100 Defensive Carry Package and the 75105 IDPA Production Legal Manual Safety Kit

The only difference I see in the 75100 Defensive Carry Package and the 75105 IDPA Production Legal Manual Safety Kit is the hammers.
the IDPA kit has the CZ competition hammer and the defensive carry kit has the CGW race hammer.

A good smith should be able to get similar triggers from either package. The only reason to get the IDPA kit over the Defensive Carry Package would be if you need to be legal to shoot IDPA matches.

Thank you for the feed back,  while i dont see any IDPA matches in my future , just the basic range use and carry is all ill be doing but i would like to have a nice crisp trigger with less creep  and a lighter pull,  not sure what the pull is in SA from the factory but IMO it could be better , the more i use the compact the more im starting to feel the creep before it breaks ,, ive read post after post about guys using the Cajun kits and being impressed with the results,  i to want to be impressed,,  Defensive package is more than likely all i need but im one of those people that thinks i might have missed out by not going the other route 😕

If you want the best trigger possible then go with the 75110 Pro-Package if you have a safety model. This is what I have and love it.
