Cajunized P-01 vs Sphinx Alpha Compact
« on: April 06, 2017, 08:11:10 PM »
Looking to possibly pick up a P-01 Pro Package with night sights $1196 shipped or a Sphinx Alpha Compact. This will be my everyday carry replacing a G19. With the Sphinx I will be out of pocket $570 since I will be trading in a Full sized Sig p320 that I don't use.

Will the P-01 full cajunized be worth the extra money out of pocket?

I think the P-01 is worth it, but I'm biased.  8) I have heard nothing but excellent about Sphinx pistols, but I have absolutely zero personal experience with them. With trading off a sidearm you don't use/won't use, you can probably sell the pistol for more than you paid for it if you decide you don't like it.

Other then Removing the Firing Pin on a Sphnix. It's every Bit as easy to Cajanize as a P-01 is. Admittedly the Pin on the Sphnix takes some pounding to remove. But once done you're home Free. CGW makes a nice roll pin replacement or you can buy a New pin from Kriss. I cajanized a CZ-p-09 . Polished all the internals. Did the same thing with My Sphnix.

Both are good guns. But the Sphnix is akin to a tight 1911 . The Trigger on the Sphnix is every Bit as smooth if no smoother then the P-09

Can you guys comment on how the Sphinx's now being made in the USA compare to the ones previously made in Switzerland?

Mine is from Switzerland: I've only examined the US ones in a Gun Shop. It appears to be the same weapon. Maybe someone with a direct comparison will know.

Any firearm from CGW is worth the outlay of capital you pay for it!
