new sp-01
« on: May 22, 2020, 01:50:06 PM »
picked up my new sp-01 manual safety today and now i have some work to do installing the CGW pro pkg and doing the action work. When i picked it up i took my p-01 with me and wanted to see what the trigger pulls were between the two. i had done some mods on my p-01 8 yrs ago and wanted to measure the results
 and also see where the sp-01 was at before the work began. I have a lyman trigger gauge ordered but won't be here for another week and i couldn't wait. The p-01 has a 13 lb hammer spring ,reduced trigger return spring ,and the reduced firing spring pkg, ring hammer, and the polishing i did on the action.  i have about 800 rounds fired thru it and todays measurements single action were  2 lbs 10 oz, 2 lbs 7.3 oz. , and 2 lbs 8.8 oz. . the double action was 7 lbs 6.5 oz., 7.7.0 oz. , and 7.5.0 oz.  the brand new never fired sp-01 single action was 5 lbs 9 oz. , 5 lbs 7.5 oz. , and 5 lbs 4.5 oz. . the double action was 10 lbs 14.5 oz. , 10 lbs .7.0 oz. , and 10 lbs 8.0 oz. will be interesting to see how the pro pkg reduces the numbers. the gunsmith used the same lyman digital trigger pull scale i have on the way!

Sounds about right before I installed the CGW Ultra-Lite Kit on my SP-01 Tactical.

Keep us posted after your the mod is done.

yes it will! my trigger scale comes in about a week so i can run the p-01 on mine to see how close the gun shop's was. he had very close numbers so he knew what he was doing!finished polishing the slide rails this morning , cleaned things up , and lubed things up! one thing i have to do yet is polish the slide ramp real good with the dremel and some metal polish. barbeque and cooking today so it can wait for now!

   Always good to see more data on the subject. I have the Lyman digital as well. It has an average function. I usually do 10 pulls and then hit the average button. There are allot of factors that can change the readings. One that sticks out to me is where on the trigger you position the pull arm of the scale. At the center of the trigger i tend to get higher readings then i do if i pull from the bottem of the trigger. I have made an effort to stay consistent with how i take the readings so at least i can compare directly to other reading that i have taken myself.

   I pull the battery out of the scale after i use it. Though i am not sure how likely it is with the 9V batteries, leaking batteries have killed too many battery powered electronics, so i do not take the chance.
Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

Do you have the extended fp on your p01? Or just the reduced fp spring? Man I need to get a trigger gauge

extended firing pin came in the pro pkg.  the new lyman scales have 2 triple a batteries in them and the door  to get them out was easier than the wheeler scale. that one you had to take a screw out! all done with the kit but for the cleaning up of the rails on the slide and a good lubing. the set screws for pre travel and over travel went well! if you ever have to remove or install the two screws it is pretty easy to do with a short piece of round tooth pic jamed into the allen holes. put your thumb on one side of the trigger guard and your pointer finger on the other and you can turn it right in!  plus you can put a small dot on the tooth pick with a marker and use it for reference when you are adjusting the screws. even after you use locktite if you are quick enough. q tips in the dremel works good for polishing tight spots, with the cotton on the end or the shaft  without for the tight area of the sear.
