Quick Range report & review: XDS Trigger spring kit by PRP (Pics and Video)

Just thought i'd post a quick review of the Powder River Precision Spring kit for the XDS. I just installed it yesterday and test fired it today.
Hopefully this review can help you decide whether or not you'd like to do this to your XDS.

(Please excuse the quality of the pics, as it was a quick and dirty deal, just took pics with my iphone as I did the spring install)

  • First off, the spring kit can be found here for $15.00 ----->

PRP XDS Trigger Spring Kit

  • This review is not meant to be a complete step by step tutorial. Simply an over view.
  • For detailed disassembly instructions, Check out James great step by step photos at:

Detail Disassembly — Tacti-Cool.com

I found his pictures and instruction invaluable as the spring kit does not come with instructions!

You won't need very many tools for this job. I only needed a few punches, a small hammer, small scribe/hook, and a pair of pliers. (in my case a MultiTasker )

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The PRP Spring kit consists of 5 replacement springs for your XDS.
  1. Striker Spring
  2. Striker Safety Spring
  3. Disconnector Spring
  4. Sear Spring
  5. Trigger Safety Spring






Striker removed...Factory spring on top, PRP Striker spring on bottom.



PRP Striker spring installed.





Striker safety spring. Factory spring on top. PRP spring on bottom.



I didn't have an armorer's block, so what's the next best thing? A roll of electrical tape! haha Hey, it worked. I also wrapped a little tape around the slide to hold the extractor in place and capture the striker safety from flying out.



Completed slide.



At this point, just for kicks I tested the trigger pull with just these components in and the trigger measured 5.5 lbs.

On to the Frame....





Factory sear spring on top....PRP sear spring on bottom.




Factory Disconnect spring on top. PRP Disconnect spring on bottom.



Factory Trigger safety spring top. PRP Trigger safety spring on bottom.



Trigger assembly complete. Did a little polishing while everything was apart. Some have mentioned that it was a pain to reconnect the sear spring and disconnector spring. It helps if you use your punch as a slave pin to put these parts together. It went back together for me with no problems.





After it was all said and done...

Factory XDS trigger pull was 6.75 lbs.
After PRP spring install, trigger pull averaged 4.75 to 5.0 lbs.
Reset feels crisper/cleaner with a very audible "click"

Is it a Huge difference? No....
But, it is a nice improvement over the factory trigger pull and upon firing the gun, I liked the way it shot.
Slightly lighter pull, not overly light by any means. Perfect for a carry gun IMO.

At a cost of only $15.00 this mod is affordable and worthwhile.

So how did it shoot?

Well I tested a few different rounds. I shot 230 grain factory ball ammo from federal, Atlanta Arms 230 grain ball, Hornady XTP 185 grain JHP, and some of my reloads. (Berry's 230 gr., CCI primer, accurate #2)

All rounds fed and fired flawlessly. No light primer strikes of any kind.

I did notice that I shot slightly left with the XTP's? I'm sure it's just me not shooting well.

I was able to hold some nice tight groups though from 7 & 10 yards without too much fuss. I believe the lighter trigger pull aided in that.





And here's a quick video clip of shooting the gun before I had to leave.
Not the best video, so make sure to put your youtube settings to HD.

Nice write up I ordered a kit today. I was wondering if this may help my trigger finger as a side benefit as last time I went shooting I have a small cut mid finger which I guess was my technique.
