Powder River Precision has the only one so far I am aware of for the XDs. It is on the website at $14.95

I have the PRP kit installed and love it. Keeps the trigger smooth as stock , with around a 4lb pull.

I am much more accurate with it , and highly recommend it.

My LGS owner installed a PRP kit in his personally owned XDS, and let me play with it a little. I did like the way it felt, but I'm not allowed to install aftermarket goodies in a weapon that will be used in an official capacity, so I'm SOL on that front.

So, since I'm a wrench turner by nature, I pulled the gun apart and did a polish job on all of the factory trigger components, the side of the trigger mechanism housing that the trigger bar rides on, and the bottom lug on the striker that contacts the sear. I didn't use sandpaper or a dremel, and I didn't re-profile anything. I used Flitz polish, paper towels, q-tips and elbow grease.

The end result is certainly not like the PRP kit would be, but it is quite noticeable. The trigger is MUCH smoother now, and breaks very clean. The vague, almost DAO-like trigger break has now been replaced with a very clean takeup and crisp break, to the point that I can easily "stage" the trigger right up until the break and get a nice clean sight picture before the final press. I'd need a trigger pull gauge to check, but it feels a touch lighter too...but that might just be the cleaner break making it feel that way.

Like I said, it's not a PRP kit - but for an "all-factory" trigger, a good polish job makes a world of difference. Maybe I should do a video or something...

Okay and I saw something on here that was talking about if you ever had to use a weapon in self defense that if its moded such as aftermarket springs you could face a harsh punishment even if it was justified to use deadly force. Any truth to this? Like is it a bad idea to mod the trigger?

I like the trigger on my XDS right out of the box. I don't want a lighter trigger pull on anything I stuff down my pants...lol. It's a great pistol whatever the trigger pull.

No.

The PRP spring kit will not land you in prison if you have to defend yourself.

It's a gun forum "hype myth" , don't pay it any attention. And if you ever use DF , call the police and don't talk to them (despite modded gun or not)

I would like to know your thoughts on this... I am a volunteer for a local PD (I am no a police officer but have gone through a 7 week Police Academy) and i have heard some things both directions.

IMO if something happened i would call the police right away and i wouldn't say anything ONLY because i dont want to say the wrong thing and talk it out with my ATY. But I know in Texas say if there is someone breaking into my house at night and i drop his ass with 3 rounds center mass. I wouldn't even go to jail over it. I know because it has happened many times here in the Houston Metro area. But i know some things are different then others..

Also im ordering the PRP Ultimate Match Target Trigger Kit XD & Extended Grip Safety Kit (for my XD40) and the PRP XDS Trigger Spring Kit for my XDs-45 tonight. Thanks for the info about these..
