Don't do the hard chrome on a P01. It doesn't look right on the alloy frame.

Are we talking about the same $30 crown beveling work to be done? I thought it was purely cosmetic.

I have not bench rested the SP-01 but it shoots accurately like all my other pistols except for the G17, low and left a few inches lol.

Nice! Brushed finish?

yea, its just $30. I was trying to say if you are trying to get a new barrel in future, I would save $30 and do it on new barrel.

Crown the barrel. I had them do it to mine and it looks really good.

Guys, if the FP block is removed, what's the part called that needs to be installed accordingly?

edit: is the part called a spacer?
Yes I had them remove the FPB, David said it helps make the trigger smoother. Also recommend the 10x barrel bushing. It made it much more accurate. Have them install fiber optic sights also which makes it so much sweeter.

lol. CZ enroute to CGW. I've seen a really good video with close up of a detail strip that was very informative. Only watched it once and it already helped, 25 minutes of it. I felt very confident of doing it myself but eventually backed out. Not worth the hassle for me... install fee is worth it to include peace of mind.

Question:

If I opt for the SAO conversion with only the necessary parts, would the entire pro-package be a mute point? Reason being is that I have heard nothing but great things about the pro package, and have not heard much feedback or info on the SAO conversion. Since it will be a single action only, polishing requirement would be minimal as well? So would there be a significant gain with a SAO conversion with the FULL Pro-package?

I'm just thinking now if I should get the pro-package and just convert it to SAO down the road.

Ducatiti,

The most cost effective way to go SAO is simple:

1 x 75100 Defensive Carry Package Kit
1 x 6SAO or 5SAO trigger

All our gunsmiths recommend this, not the Pro-Package, since with the Pro-P you are buying some parts you won't use, if you are going SAO.

Please call us if you have questions.

Just get both already since they are gonna work on it. I have a P-01 with the Pro-Package from Cajun, the package made a big difference from stock to Pro but nowhere as nice as my Sp-01 SAO trigger. Like I said, Pro with SAO is the way to go.
Ducatiti do you leave around Carson/Torrance/ Long Beach area?

Thanks Schmeky. This has answered my question. Although, that sweet DA/SA CGW trigger action is so ever tempting. I have time to decide and talk to you soon.

Bringing this up since you mentioned competition down the road. The SP01 really only fits in production division, if we're talking USPSA. Single action only would disqualify you from that division. Moving to Limited division, you wouldn't be competitive with 9mm and limited capacity mags. Don't do it.

Edit: Pro package is fine, just not SAO

What was the cost to have them do the work? And what was turn around time?

hmmmmmm. I felt the trigger on the TS and it was amazing. I think by doing a SAO conversion, it will be the closing trigger I can get to a 1911.

Have you ever compared a CGW SAO conversion to a Tactical Sport, with and without the FPB removed?
