I installed the P-01 Omega kit myself.  It actually looks like a very similar in effort as the P-07 Pro kit (one extra optional spring, I think).
Aside from re-installing the trigger spring - it's straightforward. [*DO* buy the proper metric pilot punchs; 2 & 3mm for my pistol].

DA pull went from 10.39 lb to 7.31 lb (3.08lb less)
SA pull was barely changed, from 3.40 lb to 3.26 lb (0.14lb less).  I wouldn't want the SA pull any lighter.

The pull is smoother (perhaps due to polishing).  It did feel slightly scratchy when new and before the kit.
The break is crisp (but was fine before the kit).
Reset is less, and has a positive feel, but I can't compare accurately.

Yes, the kit was great and worthwhile to me.   Someone w/ more background might tell you, but I think if you replaced ~2 springs and polished the firing pin block-stop and trigger bar you'd have 95% of the gain.  The two short-rest parts are the rest.

Not to derail, but ....

Can anyone explain HOW to install the trigger spring  ?
It looks like a similar spring on 75's, P-01 and P-07.  Atorsion spring.  Looks like

and YOW is it hard to install.

Check out Joe L post one page 1 showing his youtube link to his videos. It is not bad once you know what needs to happen. Slave pin is the key. I have used pieces of cotton swabs in the past.

I’ve seen a few posts/videos of people saying the P07 pro package isnt worth the money and that it hardly changes things besides a short reset. How many of you guys found the upgrade worth the money. Im currently waiting on the black nitride trigger to come back in stock so i can place an order but might get impatient and get the stainless, granted that im not further convinced it isnt worth the price.
It’s worth it but… all pistols don’t “respond” as well as others. And I got that tidbit from Cajun Gun Works, themselves.

I’d buy it and install it or send it to them.

Sometimes some people do not understand the worth of something until they lose that thing.

The P07 pro package is worth the money for me.

X 2. I think it's worth objectivey evaluatiing what you think your particular pistol is lacking, and what it will take to address those specific issues. Some stock models will benefit greatly from the whole package, some may really only need some of those upgrades. It's a combination of both what you want, and how your pistol currently performs, for your needs.

My stock P-07 trigger leaves a lot to be desired; The worst trigger of any firearm I’ve owned. The trigger is very crunchy until you hit the wall. Unfortunately, the “wall” isn’t too easy to distinguish between the crunchiness. I am on the CGW waitlist for the pro package… Hope to get the email soon.

If I recall correctly, you run your P-07 with the safety, and carry cocked and locked?  So you are mainly concerned with the SA creep, which it sounds like you have a lot of on your particular pistol.  Elimination of that creep is mainly accomplished by replacing the hammer, either with the CGW hammer, or the CZC race hammer will also do it from what I have read on this forum.

Anyway, if it were me and I was looking to save some time and money, I'd probably just order the CGW hammer and install it myself.  Other aspects of the Pro Package are intended to smooth out and reduce pull weight for a DA trigger pull which you probably don't care about as a cocked & locked carry person.  You may not want to tear your pistol down and deal with any possible fitment issues with the safety lever, sear, and the CGW hammer, so sending it in would avoid any of that.

Thank you for your advice, it all makes perfect sense. I do not carry cocked and locked, as I have the de-cocker installed. You must be thinking of someone else.. Most of my gripes are in SA. DA isn’t too smooth, but a little more tolerable than SA.

     Mine did require a lot of break-in and polishing, but is a trusted HD pistol after 5K+ rounds. The Wife's was nice OOB and got better with over 4K rounds through it.


The price of two CGW Pro Packages for your P-07s is far less than the cost of 9,000 rounds you fired downrange to break them in, unless you reload on the cheap.

It's definitely worth it! It significantly improved the DA and SA trigger
