Bought from Galloway a Badger short stoke hammer/trigger combo, installed, it takes out about 50% of the trigger pull, same poundage, makes the Sccy Cpx 2 a
Beast! You can adjust take up and post travel, shot 250 rds no problems

It doesn't look like a very good shape for the trigger, but maybe it's just the picture..
How much for the set up, and does it come with instructions?

No instructions, but Galloway has a YouTube video, took about 20 mins to replace the hammer and trigger,,,,,, trigger reminds me of an Apex for a Glock,, flat faced bad picture through

Have used their products for a Kimber Micro 9.
The trigger look weird but the flat face makes for good shooting.

First off I'm in no way connected to Galloway.
I first got the Badger trigger installed it then went to the range.
I really like the trigger.

A few weeks later I got the hammer .
Not been able to test it out at the range yet (ambient temp to low for my old bones).
I've got mixed feelings with the hammer. I'll save my judgment until I get to the range again.

I too added the Badger trigger kit in my CPX 2,as I liked the sound of a shorter trigger travel. I also thought about their reduced strength hammer spring. I emailed them and they said if I was putting the Badger kit in they would not recommend adding the reduced spring as their might be soft hits on some types of ammo.

I'm new here so I will try adding some photos but not sure if it will work. Here's my CPX with the kit installed,

Before I converted it I shot 200 rounds through it and then put up a target and shot 30 rounds through it. I feel shooting a couple hundred rounds first gives me a better sense of how it will perform.

Here is the after the kit was installed, same routine as to number of rounds. Not really much different but the trigger pull was much better.

Would I recommend this kit for anyone? Not really, I do like the shorter trigger travel but probably not enough to say it is necessary on a carry pistol. In a situation where I need to use it, adrenaline and focus on the situation would probably negate the difference.

Joe C -
You picture links work fine, but next time If you look below the text box there is an "Upload Attachment" tab..
You can add photos there. Instead of links, it will look like this...

Thanks for the info. There is always a learning curve when one is new at navigating a site. I'll try it here to be sure I'm doing it right.

Finally got out to the local range today.
I just love shooting steel.

Anyway the badger combo has found a home in my -2.

Forgive my lack of trigger knowledge. In over 30 years of shooting I've never had to worry about one. But, the salesman where I bought the CPX-2 would not remove the trigger lock in the store so I could get a good feel on the gun. Once home, it does seem the trigger sets far forward for my short trigger finger to get a good grasp to pull against that weight. I need to move my entire hand a bit to the right. Would one of these triggers help moving the trigger towards the rear for a better grasp? And, would I just need the trigger or the hammer as well? I'm not so much interested in removing the weight of the pull as much as I am trying to get a more solid trigger finger grasp on the trigger itself. Thank you, Dave

:stupid:

The photo above with the red trigger is the kit that includes the hammer. That combination reduces the total travel by 50% but the reset is still at the forward position. The key here is it will not reduce the actual trigger pull weight, which you want, and will be a little farther back than the stock trigger. Also because the trigger is flat compared to the stock curved one you may find it easier to get a good grasp. Maybe you can compare the picture where the flat trigger is with your gun to see if it is enough to meet your requirements.

I, like a lot of people think the trigger has to much travel and pull, (@ almost 9 lbs)
However, on the CPX-2, this is the safety. I bought this weapon for my wife as a carry.
For that reason, I’m probably not going to lighten the trigger or the travel, instead I’m teaching her technique
and trigger control. For slow long range distance accuracy, I added 2 dots on the serial # area (back) of the weapon, I also painted the top of the trigger, line those up, get in n target, fire. For me, (I emphasize) this helps on accuracy. The dots are
right before trigger break. **This technique requires some practice on dry-firing before you go live. The trigger at this position is actually better than my kimber. It takes up around 3/4 of the trigger pull and eliminates most finger movement/torque. I don’t recommend this for everyone or a high stress situation. It’s for the range, for the most part.
