    Wondering how to increase the detent pressure on the thumb safety. I would like to carry cocked and locked, as I do with my 1911's and Browning Hi-Power. The detent is very weak, to the point where you can barely feel it. I consider it unsafe for cocked and locked carry. Has anyone else noted this problem, and found a solution?

    I only had an omega p01 for a short time and did not study the inner workings, so unfortunately I have no good advice.

    I would give Cajun Gun Works a call, as he advised me on refitting the detent in the 75 compact to give it a more positive click, but decided not to do it.

    I can relate though:


    I considered my CZ75 compact and cz 85 compact thumb safety’s to be so astonishingly weak and mushy I manually decocked it, pointed into a planter. They did not feel safe for carry and I tried a few holsters and still found the sometimes disengaged except in a kydex holster that covered the safety completely.

    I on the 75 compact, I actually used a 1911 plunger tube spring, cut 1/3 off the length, and was able to cram it into the CZ75 compact behind the sear cage and had around 3k trouble free rounds before selling it. The 85 I never carried and sold.
