Making a SP-01 SAO
« on: September 01, 2017, 03:43:41 PM »
Just ordered and sp01 safety model. I think I'd like to make it SAO with out there firingpin block. So do I just remove the disconector and install the SAO trigger? If I get the race hammer with adjustable sear Do I just need the spacer to get rid of the fpb? also is there any point in getting the extended firing pin and lighter hammer spring? since it will be SAO

This will show/explain to you how to do whatever you want in your conversion.

The extended firing pin question. I got a reduced power firing pin spring, 15lb hammer spring, CZC Competition Hammer and converted a fellas compact to SAO with no FPB system. It have a 2.5 lb trigger at that point. If you wanted to try and go even lighter then you may want the extended firing pin and a lighter spring.

You do realize it's an addiction, don't you?

This is just the first.

You'll want to do it again,

and again,

and again,.....
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Hahaha that's funny! I couldn't imagine what my collection would be like if I drank... That would be bad news for me.

No worries. I just figured it would save time and he more thorough to have you watch the SAO videos in there compared to me typing it all out.

If you've already worked on a decocker model, the safety model will be a breeze. The sear cage is much easier to work on as you will be dumping the lifter and spring for a spacer. And there isn't a decocker lever spring to deal with either. Pull the disconnecter out and whaaaalaaaa!

Put a 100rnds through my new SP 01 this morning. it's tight for sure. The trigger is  borderline awful. I know they smooth out a lot after a few hundred rounds. But my 75bd trigger is so much better it's not even close.  I really dislike the curved trigger also but the night sights are great. I'm gonna polish up the insides tonight.
Definitely ready to go SA.
So I can use the factory sear with the CGW hammer? I just have to fit it to the saftey? Is there a difference between the competition legal hammer and the race hammer ?  I only compete against my buddies. No rules  :D
