why send your pistol to prp or some other company for a trigger job when springfield can do it?

I have to agree with these two, that line of reasoning makes very little sense(although, there is a lot in courts that does not).

I can only see two scenarios where trigger modifications(and none others) could possibly be problem: 1) a defense of "accidental discharge", or 2) a claim against the shooter which states that more rounds were fired than needed to successfully defend oneself - excessive force.

Otherwise, if the victim's statement is that they raised their gun with the sole intention of shooting the attacker (multiple times) in self-defense, the trigger was going to be pulled whether it is set to 10 lbs or 3 lbs. And, private citizens are not held to the same standard of performance as law enforcement officers, who are professionals by training and trade. Multiple shots fired is defensible, unless the attacker was already down. At which point, trigger pull really doesn't matter.

@LagerHead: Excellent video! I am sure it goes without saying how many people you have instilled confidence in attempting these trigger jobs, certainly myself included. I can't wait for the PRP Ultimate Kit to come back in stock and do this upgrade myself. Don't get me wrong, the PRP videos are second to none when it comes to installing their product, however it is great to see someone do it who isn't a "professional". Thanks again.

The others I was considering are a Barsto match barrel and possibly a slide cut

It has been my experience with anything in life the more you alter the original design the less relaible it becomes. At the most a trigger job then let it be if this is a carry piece, now if your building a range whore for attention then waste that money and get that sucker TACTICOOL'd out!!

Done a few mods, what is the main benefit of upgrading to the stainless guide rod?

I think it makes it heavier in the front and lessens the muzzle flip

Just installed a Powder River Precision Drop-In Trigger Kit into my XDm 5.25 9mm and what an incredible improvement over the original trigger. The original trigger is good but now my gun has a great trigger.

- Significantly reduced pre-travel
- Reduces pull to 3.5 - 4.5 lbs
- Virtually eliminates over travel
- Significantly reduces reset

This trigger kit is easy to install. I have never done something like this and I did the work while watching the YouTube tutorial on the PRP website. The kit provides a competition trigger spring and competition striker spring, as well as their standard trigger/striker springs, plus a reduced compression striker safety spring. Also includes a trigger with a nub on the back to eliminate the over travel.
