Another tool I used to get into the notches of the trigger bar is a Dawson Precision aluminum drift tool that fits perfectly in that area. I just wrap my 3M aluminum oxide sand paper around it and keep it square to the surface.

CAGLS, I've ordered some slide glide for the slide rails. Would you recommended putting some between the trigger bar and the frame?

No just a light coat of oil there or any fcg areas.

I am currently waiting for some springs and firing pin from Cajun Gun Works to upgrade my Phantom that I had sitting around since 2009 and I have been polishing everything that has been posted by smecky to bring it back to my main arsenal. Can't wait for the end results!  :)

Even though it won't improve trigger pull can I polish the firing pin for more reliable primer strikes and bling? Or would that void cgw's lifetime warranty on the firing pin?

Welcome to the forum Ron.
You'll have to contact CGW and ask them. Only then, can you be sure if it does or not.

Welcome to the forum Ron.

Thanks!

Yea I suppose that would be the best course of action. And I am now gonna have to order a new firing pin block lifter spring as mine pulled a Houdini on me so might as well call them while putting in a order...  :(

Darned thing is so tiny im sure it is in plain sight but for the life of me I cannot find the little sob.

Can the gun function without it while I wait for it to arrive in the mail or would that be really really dumb decision?

Plus 1 as they say, or [LIKE] as other places do. I scour UTubes looking for advice, hoping to find good stuff, but now wonder if I'll have to learn vimeo or other places...

I have an SP-01 arriving next week. I've done all the stuff here and will be doing it again. I'll try and record it and post it to YouTube. I know how much I would have appreciated some YouTube videos of this when I got started. Give me a week or two...

I use Flitz, as it came pretty highly recommended. There are some other good brands out there, but Flitz worked great and I've had no reason to use anything else.

That would be greatly appreciated by many in this forum.  I belong to 5 forums and by far this one has more instructional posts about tuning and making pistols better.

With the knowledge acquired in this post and others, I just finished an SP-01 (safety) that I have been shooting for years. Thought it had gotten pretty good with just the wear in process but thanks to David at CGW for parts suggestion and sharing his valuable time to answer my questions, I now have the range gun I always dreamed about.

It went so well, I reworked the wife's SP-01 Tactical with more parts from CGW...this will ensure I get to keep my pistol :-)

Thanks again to everyone for sharing your knowledge on this forum and thanks again to David at CGW...
