Thanks, Terry.

It would have been a lot easier if they had a lanyard loop at the end of the spring cap, so we can push in the spring on just a flat surface. :)

Glad I could help spend you money, Ha ha

The plus is you will love the gun when you are done.

Looks like CGW doesn't sell the sear/hammer separately now.  So... if you want a hammer sear it is $300.

This is a shame.
Since the low cost nature of the gun, leaves room for the dyi people to
make an excellent gun on the cheap.
I know David has commented that sales of these parts (Canik) have been slow so he cut back on the offered items.

Hi guys,

I just found this awesome thread. I must say it gave me a new respect for my stock C-100. My piece is identical to Terry's, but in .40 S&W. That said, being the next caliber up in power, can I use the same set up as everybody here? I also ordered Meprolight Tru Dot sights, and they should arrive in a few days. Looking forward to making this happen.

Hi Kvnndvn,
Glad you enjoyed the tutorial.
Just got your Email as well.
yes allowing that the parts are available from Cajun Gun Works you can do the same things.
The trigger group should be the same.
(edit) I just looked you can buy the complete Canik Hammer kit again, half way down page 3 on his sight (end edit)


I think the Meprolight is a vertical blade so if that is the case you should not have any issues, only the fun is getting the stock ones out.

I will respond to your other questions on your email, on a responce to it directly.

Thanks for this thread.
I've done this same work before but never really had it so well laid out. I wish I had seen this a long time ago.

I have my Tristar p120 with CGW parts down to 2 pounds 10 ounces (SA). This is with the blue 13 pound hammer spring.

Before polishing the sear cage and associated parts it was at 3 pounds 8 ounces so a pretty significant difference.

Been reading some of the posts. Planning on doing the same to my new/used EAA Tanfoglio .40. Mcarbo makes a complete kit to lighten the trigger in sa and da. can't remember if it's the firing pin roll pin or trigger pin, one of them is larger on one side. Believe it's the right side. Not sure if all clones have the same type pins. I'm sure most all ready know. Just thought I'd mention it. Hate learning such things the hard way.

Want to say “Thank You“  Terry mc.

I bought a C100 on the recommendation of another member. After installing a CGW spring kit and polishing the internals it has become my daily carry gun. Those two things took the DA trigger from 14 lbs to 7 lbs and the SA trigger from 7 lbs to 5 lbs. I may install the CGW hammer kit later but don’t really see the need as I love the gun as is.

I’ve been impressed with the quality of the TriStar pistols. Was shopping for a SP-01 but will probably buy the P-120. With either one the same amount of work is needed to slick it up so why not save a few hundred dollars and go with TriStar????

Thanks again,
LBS

Terry MC I really appreciate the time and effort you put into the pics and instructions.  I have a Tri Star C100 and have installed the CGW spring kit.  Your step by step instructions were so helpful!  Thank you!
