    Hi guys thinking about having some trigger work done. Should I send the gun away to CZ Custom or Cajun Gun works or order parts and have it done locally? Also have any of you had work done by either of these places? Thanks

    Matt Mink @ Automatic Accuracy does a stellar trigger job on CZs.

    I have the single action mod from the CZ custom shop. To be honest, it was a disappointment -- the result is a long do-nothing pretravel followed by the single action pull, in a "two stage" setup. Using the adjustments to correct this, the gun cannot reset the trigger for the next shot; the long pull is *required* unless something else inside the gun is modified to work. So, really, its virtually identical to a cocked shot on the standard DA/SA.

    My wife loves it, I found it to be "meh".

    Also, the cz shop really messed up my gun. On the phone, I ordered a left handed rami -- it would get the trigger job, a left hand mag release, and an ambi safety. The delivered gun: right hand safety, left hand mag release, and crappy trigger. Called them back and they explain "no can do" --- the ambi safety wont go in the metal gun and the trigger job won't go in the plastic gun or something like that... I was NOT happy but I kind of let it slide because they did a 125% awesome job on my wife's purchase.

    Years ago, I did a simple trigger job on a CZ PCR-BD Compact which turned out quite well. Classic SIG quality? No...but really close. Since, I've built and fired several single-action conversions on the full-size frame that turned out to be exceptionally rewarding on the range.

    If you actually shoot what you customize, you'll appreciate how good CZ pistols are before conversion.

    I do my own trigger work. If you don't have 5 thumbs on each hand, it is not difficult and there is all kinds of information on the web for how to. You need two things: the right tools and patience. When doing such delicate work, you do a little bit of work, reassemble, and test. It is much easier to take metal off than it is to put it back on.

    There could be a problem with having it done locally. Are there smiths who know how to do it correctly? Having a bubba dremel tool his way may not be in your best interest.

    I replaced the springs on my Dan Wesson with a set of Wolf springs. Made a nice trigger pull even better just by reducing the weight.

    This is what I worry about. I may just change some springs and maybe do some polishing. Thanks for the advice guys. Any links to a good video of CZ polishing?

    SP-01 is the model and I'm thinking about just changing the hammer spring for now. Thanks for the link.

    A real gunsmith is certified and insured, and on the rare occasion he makes a mistake, will fix it for you on his dime. They have the proper tools and manuals and experience to do the job. They are usually a FFL as well. I do not know where you guys go to find a dremel tool bubbasmith, but most of that sort of thing is DIY people that only mess up their own guns.. ?? It should not be too hard to find a reputable smith.

    A lighter hammer spring can do wonders but it can also lead to FTF problems on some ammo (light strikes). A lighter trigger spring can help too; many guns (not sure about cz) put an overwhelming do-nothing spring on the trigger (all it does is pull the trigger back to the front for the next shot, which takes like 1 oz of force) ... some guns have 5+ pounds of spring for that!

    You can go to a 13 pound spring and an extended firing pin which will smooth it up. Putting the competition hammer from CZ Custom will help too. I'd stay away from polishing any of it.

    I think both shops do really good work but I did a trigger job on both my CZ 85 and SP-01 myself.
    I did the SRT and changed a lot of other components and did some polishing. I had never had a CZ apart but there is a lot of information available online but you have to hunt for it, not as readily available as say information on a Glock.
    Both of my CZ have great light trigger pulls with a short reset and 100% reliability.

    David at CGW did his magic on my 75-B. I got the whole etouffee package done:

    • Defensive Carry Package
    • Reach Reduction Kit
    • Meprolight Tru Dot night sights

    ...and I couldn't be happier.

    I put the CGW spring kit in my 75B and a Canik C-100. I have fired about 500 rounds and the lighter hammer spring (13 lb) has not failed to ignite the primer on either gun. At a cost of $20 shipped its a cheap way to get a lighter trigger pull.
