How well does a Kadet kit work on a fully cajunized P-01?

I don't know what it will have. I have a p-01 with the pro package on order from David but it still likes a few weeks being ready to ship.

You'll need a heavier Hammer spring. Mine still runs the factory spring, (everything but the hammer has been cajunized) but gonna be playing around with springs soon. I believe either the #16 or #17 will still allow 100% ignition.
   Just make sure to put the lighter spring back in when shooting the .9mm. Call CGW and have them add a couple springs to your order.
If guns are outlawed.........
 Only outlaws will have guns.

We do this quite often.  The recipe is simple:

Do all our typical upgrades, then we shorten the CGW firing pin to 2.440, and install our HS-18 hammer spring.  This way you still have the short reset, superb SA break, but the DA goes from 7.5 lbs. (with our HS-13 hammer spring) to around 8.5 lbs. with the HS-18.

We have had no complaints from customers with this set up and you can run either the 9 mm or Kadet as you normally would.

Thanks,
I'll think it over and we can discuss it when you start on my pistol.
