Thinking of upgrading my XDM...

I've been doing some research and I'm torn as to what to do....I already have night sights and now I'm looking to do more. I'm thinking of getting a new trigger...and was curious as to your guys thoughts on other upgrades.

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

I recently put TruGlo TFO's on my XDM. What a great improvement that was. Now, I just sent it out to PRP for their famous trigger jobs and some other bling thrown on while it is there.

Can't wait for it to come back.

why send it out when you can do it your self and save the shipping and labor. i did mine with the drop in kit and it is just as good as in house. did it in 45min and was shooting again.
just my 2C

I would suggest a trigger job, not sure you will notice much from a barrel upgrade. Some of the custom finishes our Sponsors offer are pretty cool also, or extended magazines, etc. etc.

Trigger job and polish the sear, striker and striker channel (if it's rough).

That will make the gun a LOT more fun to shoot.

Don't all XD(m)'s already come stock with a match barrel from Springfield Armory? Are Bar-Sto's that big of a step up from stock?

Unload your gun. Pick a safe direction. Check it's unloaded, ok, now slooooooowly dry fire the gun. You feel that slightly gritty sensation? You feel how the pressure to move the trigger (and striker) goes up and down?

After polishing, you won't.
