Trigger Pull

Postby BOB72 » Wed Apr 27, 2011 11:10 am

I am not a gunsmith nor would I attempt to do anything to the workings of the CPX2. I do have a question regarding the 9lb pull. Is it possible to reduce the trigger pull to something like6 lbs without creating a problem with the hammer strike? I think, and this is just a guess, that the pull is a function of a spring, the travel a function of the spring as well. (WAG's here.) Perhaps one of the designers would deign to put in a word or two here. I know that without a safety, the trigger pull acts as as a restraint against an accidental shot. I also know that the harder the pull, the greater the likelihood that aim is affected. Personally I would prefer a lighter pull. Comments welcome.

You could research the Keltec Paper clip mod and see if it could work with the cpx

I've never heard of anyone successfully getting your request done..
I've never heard of anyone trying..
I have heard several people complain about the pull weight.

I really can't imagine any one complaining about the trigger pull on a SKYY or newer models , mine is as nice or nicer than any double action revolver I have handled ?
You want a nasty trigger pull try a P-11 , at least the couple I handled before buying a PF-9 ( which I got rid of because of the trigger ) the P-11 felt like the were in a sand box before I got to try them , and yes they were brand new . PF-9 i had never smoothed out at all , over five hundred rounds through it and a "fluff and buff" .
I am very happy with this pistol overall ( SKYY CPX-1 ).

The CPX-1 Gen 2 trigger pull is much easier than the Kel Tec P-11 and much smoother which contributes to its accuracy.

I'm wanting to reduce the pull on my 9 mm CPX-1 also, as mentioned by BOB72; does anyone know of literature describing a procedure from SCCY or perhaps a gunsmithing book for semi-autos?

You would have to have a replacement spring, and until they make one, there isn't anything you can do. The spring is a rather peculiar design, so I don't see companies like Wolff making one unless popularity goes way up.

Having just a 2 day old NEW sccy cpx G 2 and have fired 162 rounds thru it today. The trigger pull is a bit to strong for me and my trigger finger was all bend out of shape. But all that said, for safety its a good idea especially if your sccy G 2 has a round in the chamber. Weighing in at just 21oz. with a full 10 rounds in the magazine its ultra light. A person in a hurry could put it in their pants pocket etc.... without a safety on the sccy G 2 that heavy trigger pull again at least to me adds a buffer for accidentally snagging the trigger and firing.
Another thought comes to mind is that we all know about the Heavy 9LB Trigger Pull. Mentally in a real case Scenario we all would know immediately what would need to be done to pull the trigger being a heavy pull.

They made it ridiculously heavy, and they didn't have to. Glock has about a 5lb trigger pull, and there's no issue with that. You can call that little lever on the Glock trigger a safety all you want, just like you can call the heavy trigger pull a safety, but neither one of them will go off unless you pull the trigger on a live round.

I have to agree that a slightly lighter trigger pull would be better in my opinion. I think it could be just as safe with a 7lb pull. Where not talking about a hair trigger.
Additionally, I don't think any pistol should be carried in a pocket without a in the pocket slip in holster. They are very inexpensive, and do help conceal the pistol.

Maybe because I have shot revolvers I find many of these dao guns not to bad.I do not stage a trigger. I steadily pull all the way thru to break.As long as the pull is smooth and consistant I don't have a problem.I would say that this doesn't make for precise shooting but for self defense it is fine. Out to 15yds I am usually on com. Actually, compared to most revolver triggers I find the triggers on most semi's to be a little lighter.

I totally agree with having a pocket slip-in holster, from a safety aspect as well as for concealment purposes.

I have shot mostly Browning Hi-powers, and 1911's most of my life so I have become real used to a single action pistol. But with the CPX pistols, it didn't take long to get used to the trigger 2 magazines and I was dialed in. I would'nt change a thing, just my 2 cents.

I like the trigger as is. For it is smooth and I feel safe with it. If you fire a Glock a lot the transition is from 3 stage trigger pull to just about any other is sometimes tough.

I think the trigger pull is fine. I want a pretty long pull on a carry piece. Yes, there was an accident with a holstered Glock in a car. Yiogo
