LCP Trigger Spring Kit, what do we think?

So I was just made aware that MCARBO has an LCP replacement set of springs for the hammer spring, firing pin spring, and trigger return spring. In combination, it's supposed to reduce the trigger pull by almost 50%. I expected that this would result in light strikes, especially with some of the cheaper ammo, but there are a ton of reviews, and none of them have reported an issue. What do we think? I'll be honest, I'd love to try it.

I don't know about the LCP, but I have thought a bit about it for my LCP2, and watched an installation video, but decided that I like the trigger well enough as is for the LCP2 and how I use it for CC. I carry AIWB, and don't really want it any lighter, and the break is pretty decent...not perfect but OK. Nice compromise as is IMO. I might be a good thing for the LCP however.

You will have to decide yourself on the wisdom of lightening the trigger on a micro-pistol without a manual safety. As far as MCarbo is concerned I have had good results with their products. They test the springs and sell them as a set to assure function.

Well, even now, I carry with a rubber trigger stop, so I have little worry about day to day carry. Also, from what I've heard so far,
the resulting trigger is still not particularly sensitive, as well as remaining long. I will let folks know my impression.

Just got back my LCP with the spring kit installed. Everyone at the store wanted to try it (LCPs and LCP IIs are big sellers there). No one who tried it seemed worried about the trigger weight. There is still no take up, just a long steady pull, followed by the break. The difference in pull weight is dramatic. I would say the pull was less than 4lbs, but I know that's because you have a steady 3ish pound pull with the 4lbs at the break, so your mind fixates on the overall pull. The reset clicks (The LCP has the fake click before the real one) seem much more distinct. I tried one of their Gen 2 LCPs, so I could make a direct comparison, and the improvement is ludicrous. I now want to go shooting just to run through a box of 380! If you've ever shot the LCP for even a short while, you know how weird that sounds. The 13lb recoil spring, grip sleeve, and mag extension have already made the recoil tolerable, so...

First let me say since I have the https://videos.recoilweb.com/watch/c...09934284093047 Federal Premium has come out with a new improved 380 round, i more modern 99 Grain HydroShok

Now to this thread question, I did not use this particular spring set, but a similar one from Fort Wayne Tactical. I put a set in my LCP Custom (All Customs are Gen 2) worked well for me
