Title: Cajun Gun Works
Post by: Warpspasm on May 25, 2013, 04:47:05 PM
I've found over the years that many in the firearm industry provide above average customer service. But, occasionally you come across a business that goes above and beyond what you would expect and I think they need to be recognized. I found that to be the case with Cajun Gun Works in Louisiana. They specialize in custom made parts to tune the fine CZ pistols. I recently purchased a highly rated front/rear sight set from them and was given excellent instructions both in writing and on the telephone, when I called with questions. The sights turn an already excellent CZ 75B into an even much easier to shoot pistol. There was a minor issue with the rear drift sight, so I called CGW about it. David, the owner, was genuinely concerned about the issue and, even though I won't go into the details, he went far beyond what I expected to make it right. This company is a class act and, as I told them, they have won me over as a customer for life. My next purchase will be one of their race hammer kits and some other things after that. If you don't want to do the work yourself, you can ship your pistol to them and they'll do it all. I'd be more than comfortable doing that, if I didn't like fooling around with stuff myself. I HIGHLY recommend CGW if you're looking to improve your CZ. Here's a link to their site. http://www.cajungunworks.com/

David has me as a customer for life also.

I don't think you'll find too many folks around here that feel much differently.

I bought his hammer kit 3 and some other parts, and when I had some trouble he was right there and stayed with it until things were right.

He's truly a class act.

I feel exactly the same way and I am in Canada.  Not only is CGW's customer service uncomparable, he pricing and shipping are also.  P.S.  I don't have an autographed hat :)

David at CGW is a horrible person.... ;)

All he ever does is providing great products along with great service, which make you spend money, and then more money.

Ditto to David at CGW.  Lovin my Rami after upgrades.  Great communication and honestly wants you to be happy with your project.
Even took care of me when I, er....lets just say I could no longer use of the new springs he sent me....  Would certainly recommend him, and look forward to dealing with him in the near future.   Now he needs to have a car window decal made up so we can advertise for him..

My first post on this board.   Being new to the CZ i had no idea where to start.   I asked a CZ (nut) how to customize my new purchase and he suggested Ca Guns..  I called and the owner answered, he spend about 5 or 10 minutes helping me and not being a typical rude Gunsmith. I'm sure I asked several stupid questions but he did not insult me or talk down to me.  I plan on sending my gun to him for a few upgrades. If the product reflects his attitude he will have a customer for life.

I wish more gun shops / gunsmiths got it like this man does.

Hate you jaber....

David is a great guy. I'm currently looking for an SP-01 and want work done. I emailed david about sending this future-gun to him and had questions.
He answered every question in great detail, all to a guy who doesn't even have it (yet)
He could have said "We can talk more about this when you have it" or "I'm on vacation"
but instead he gave me all the info I could want and more and was nothing but professional. He has my future business guaranteed.
Not a hat guy...maybe he can sign something else.

+1 The wife loved the CZ but wanted the better trigger pull. The gun range recommended David at CGW. Ever since he went through her gun, I want him to do all of ours! Currently at 3 CZ's, 1 is done, the second is being picked up and shipped straight to him. And come tax return I'll have te funds to do the 97b! He's a grey guy, great customer service, and love the products!

CGW is great.
Called and talked to David a while ago and he had some recommendations that followed exactly what I wanted to do to my 9mm SA.
We went with the Race hammer kit and the short reset kit.
He was waiting on supplies for the reset kit, and expected them in a couple of weeks.
So I had him ship the Hammer kit and when I got the package, I found that he had actually pulled together all the supplies to include the reset kit as well.
First rate service!

I haven't yet sent any business his way but everything I've read about his work and service bordered on gushing. He can count on getting some sight work from me hopefully next month, and down the road probably a defensive carry package install too.

David is one heck of a guy to do business with. He has already done two CZ pistol of mine and very happy with the result. After the Christmas holidays I will sent him my 85' combat.

I had David work on my SP01 - defensive carry package, reach reduction kit (with a type 2 disconnector), ez drift sights with a F/O red front.  He turned my already great pistol into an amazing pistol! One thing I especially liked is that David called me while he had my gun on the work bench just to see if I had any questions or wanted to make any changes before he started working on it.  Great service, great shop, and great turnaround time! He had my pistol finished within about 4 weeks of me sending it to him.

Yes I to am sold on CGW and the friendly helpful information that David is willing to share with you. David has helped me in the past and I'm about to put in another order for some other parts for a newly obtained SP-01. I believe we all owe a round of thanks for all the helpful and detailed information that he takes his time posting, Thanks David!     oldtimer48

I am another satisfied customer.  CGW helped me with parts and later install of a set of Dawson sights and springs for my Canik L-120.  He was patient in explaining how to get that ....... rear sight off.  Prices are good and shipping fast.

Until today I had only ever spent $17 with CGW (for a 3-spring kit for my Canik).  Despite this I exchanged numerous (probably annoying/pesky) emails with David with probably-silly questions.  He humored each with a very courteous and quick reply, and even gave me hints of what he had in the works for the Caniks!  I just placed an order today that hopefully makes up for all of the questions with minimal investment early on.  ;D  Can't wait to try the new parts - the springs alone made a huge difference, so I am excited to see what the race hammer and sear kit will do!

I am awaiting a "Cajunized" PCR from David that just shipped today, I am like a kid on Christmas Eve.   This will be my 4th CZ in roughly 7 months that have been to or bought from CGW and David.   Both he and his son are class acts that have me
as a life time customer.   In my opinion you will NEVER find better customer service....ANYWHERE!
Title: Re: Cajun Gun Works
Post by: s0nspark on May 21, 2014, 07:18:02 PM
In my opinion the true test of customer service is when things don't go as planned. 

Issues arose with 2 of the guns I sent in and in both cases David bent over backwards to make things right and ensure I was happy.

Any CZ or clone I acquire will go straight to CGW for his magic :)

Dogpile.  8)

I own one gun that made the trip to Louisiana and six that have been fully upgraded here with his parts.  I have also sold two others.  My standard routine when I acquire a new to me gun is to shoot it once to ensure basic function and then order the parts.  If I don't value a CZ enough to get it fully Cajunized then I don't value it enough to keep it.  Hasn't happened yet, probably won't.
Title: Re: Cajun Gun Works

Can't wait to try the new parts - the springs alone made a huge difference, so I am excited to see what the race hammer and sear kit will do!

SPOILER: you will be quite pleased ;)

As a new gun owner with a P-02 on my hip and no gun modification experience whatsoever I reached out to CGW regarding the springs and firing pin replacement kits. David was fantastic providing me all the info I needed to modify my pistol. With the P-02 being a hybrid (P-01 body with Omega trigger) you have to be a little careful you get the correct parts. David couldn't have made it any easier (other than coming over to my house and doing the mods for me).

I am a big fan of CGW. It is so hard to find good customer service much less excellent customer service these days. Excellent is where CGW is at.

So A+, five stars, thumbs up to CGW!

I haven't bought anything from CGW YET, but have got the same results with my numerous (probably annoying/pesky) emails. I have big (to me) plans for a gun (Tristar S-120) that I am waiting to be shipped.

Zulu,

You will love what the CGW kit will do for the S-120.
I have  a full CGW build in my C100 and love it.
If you do it your self I have a thread on the work in the clone section it is stickied.
