Default Just got my Sp-01 back from CGW

Had the pro package, FO sight, serrated rear and barrel bushing done to it. Can't wait to shoot it.

What's up with that rear sight? Makes it more aerodynamic? Looks pretty ridiculous.

It is a competition sight, does not need to be a block, or have a huge flat surface on it so you can rack the slide with your genitals.

People put these types of sights on Glocks to Germ....

Looks nice. ... rear sight does look little high, but it's your gun. Long as you are happy with it.

Nice! Update us with a range report. I'm curious how much of a difference the bushing would make.

Bee, if I heard them correctly. they did clarify that you really see the effects of the bushing at about 25 yrds plus.....but will report back after the first trip to the range.

Congrats! My SP01 is at CGW right now, just waiting its turn. I am going to do a similar treatment on mine. I am also curious about the improvement that the bushing makes, please let us know if it seems better!

Nice work and a good looking gun but I also think that rear site is way... I mean way too big and extends too far beyound the back of the slide. It also angles out in the wrong direction (outward) onstead of inward to follow the contour of the back of slide. Fine if you like it that way.

The funny thing is, on my PCR, I got the short rear CZC tritium sight because I didn't want it hanging out for carry. Of course, the SP-01 is merely home defense and a range toy.

Nice OP. So what is the trigger pull now? How does it feel compared to how it was before you sent it? And man it seems like CGW got that back to you very quickly indeed. How long was your turn around time?

Looking forward to seeing some pics with your range report soon.

I am thinking about sending my SP01 to CGW as well. I watch a youtube video review on CGW work, and I notice the gun can put the safety to ON position when the hammer is uncocked after CGW work, could you confirm this feature? I would love to get the extra safety feature when the hammer is uncocked.

If this happens, it is because the set screw on the sear either is not adjusted properly or it needs a little loctite so it stays in place.

This is not a feature, it is a byproduct of the difference in the geometry of a competition style hammer and a factory hammer. As you noticed in some cases the safety lever can be engaged with the hammer down. Unfortunately the safety system is not designed to be functional with the hammer in any other position than fully cocked. If the safety is engaged with the hammer fully down or at the half-cock position and the trigger is pulled the safety leg of the sear and or the safety shaft can be damaged. In some cases it may appear that the safety is functional with the hammer in other positions when it is not functional. As far as i am aware this is why both CGW and CZC suggest that you do not engage the safety lever unless the hammer is fully cocked.
