Travel to reset is reduced and there is a definitely noticeable click when it resets I suggest trying to find a buddy that has one done and trying it for yourself. It really is surprising how much a xd trigger can be improved

Kirk,

Did you get just the trigger job?

Has anyone done the trigger job and the factory clean up?

Correct just the trigger job on my xdm45. I think on my xd9 service though ill have the factory clean up and all pins replaced when I send it in for a trigger. It could definitely use a factory clean up, I treat that old nine mil like a red headed step child lol

Springer did my open gun and it's great. I had the comp trigger and cleanup done. I don't carry it, but I just got a 3.8 that I do carry and will be sending him soon for trigger work.

I mentioned this on another trigger thread, but Springer Precision is definitely the way to go. I bought the trigger kit a week ago, and installed on my xd45 in less then an hour time from disassembly to assembly. my factory trigger pull went from a sloppy 5.5 lbs. of pull to a clean 3.5lbs. Some of you that are more mechanically inclined could buy the kit for $80, and install yourself with a few cheap gunsmith tools, saving the trouble of shipping and extra costs.

I'm also on the same fence. The reports I have been able to see myself and from what I have heard/seen/read from the professional trainers is they recommend is a minimum of 5lbs. They are in somewhat the same agreement that if you are in a negative situations that with the adrenaline flow that you would not even feel the trigger and could accidentally shoot without even knowing. Just the rush of adrenaline in the blood flow could cause you to accidentally pull the trigger if you are in a situation that calls for your finger to be on the trigger.

Yeah, you could keep the finger off the trigger until needed but the issue is when you do have to place the finger on the trigger.

I just don't know...you can't really train for this. You could perform the stressful training type sessions where you run, shoot, run more, and shoot again; but, you still aren't getting that rush of the "fight or flight hormones" to know how it will affect you. These same "professionals" will also go one to say that they think this is why the accurate shooters miss their targets. The most recent version of this that I saw was on the Personal Defense TV show on the Sportsman Channel where Massad Ayoob touches on the rush of hormones and that the firearms shakes in your hand...


Good Luck And Be Safe!!!

Once I get to where I "need" to put my finger on the trigger I have already decided that whatever I am pointing at is going to get a hole in it... finger don't go on the trigger until its time to get to work...EVER, PERIOD
