xdm trigger not "sensitive enough"

i have an xdm-45 and to me, it feels that there is too much play in the trigger and too long of a reset.

does anyone else feel this way?

id prefer a hair trigger, one that has a shorter reset / shorter trigger pull.

the reason i say this is because if i want to fire multiple rounds quickly, ive noticed sometimes i dont let the trigger go all the way forward before pulling it and then i have to let it reset.

I never felt that way because I do a lot of dry fire practice to get used to the pull and reset.

No problems rapid fire.

But a lot of guys get trigger kits. The PRP drop in kit seems to be a favorite around here.

Sounds like you would love a PRP triggger kit. I love the drop-in kit! If you just eant it more sensitive, have it watch a couple days worth of Cristmas movies with my wife

I'm watching the mailbox for my ultimate match trigger from PRP for my 5.25. I put an XDS spring kit in yesterday. Definitely a noticeable difference.

Pretty easy. You can get step by step vids on PRPs you tube channel.

Plenty of videos and there are links at PRP's website. I have a 4.5 in .45 ACP. Put the kit in before I ever fired it, but did dry-fire. Very little take-up clean crisp 4# pull, very short reset and no overtravel. Wouldn't have it any other way. The heavy factory trigger is the only weak link with this pistol that I consider to be the best polymer framed pistol. I had an XD Tac in .40 S&W previously and knew what to expect with the trigger when I ordered my XDm sight unseen. So, after a little dry-firing it got the PRP kit.

I purchased a NEW XDM 45 3.8 compact with the knowledge that I already disliked the trigger pull...

The PRP ultimate match trigger kit fixed that in one night! I purchased the kit even before my FFL had the weapon in hand!

It was a WOW :-O moment upon install!

You Cant enjoy an XD or XDM without a PRP trigger kit.

I installed it my self without ANY issues. My FIRST gun mod!

That said,,, I'm NOT a NUBE using basic hand tools and my mechanical skills are pretty good. All in all,,, it worked out EXCELLENT!!!!!

Very crisp and predictable trigger pull. Just what the perfectionist ordered!
