    Well not really lol. I just got my XDM45 back from Scott yesterday and all i have to say is holy ****. Not only did it take less than 5 days from the time I shipped it till the time I got it back(virginia to oregon and back), but the trigger outperforms any of my other pistols i currently own. Next to my .45 compact its like night and day difference. I had him do the combat carry job with a requested 3.5 pound pull. Now I dont have a fish scale to measure the trigger but it has got to be right around the desired weight. I got a chance to take it out right after i recieved it and my groups tightened up considerably at 7-20 yards. There is little take up and a very clean break with zero over travel. I had to mentally concentrate (more than usual) to watch the trigger reset so I didnt let a round off before my sights were back on target. To put it short this thing is sick, so needless to say if anyone is on the fence about which trigger job to get or whether or not to even get one I HIGHLY recommend Springer Precision for any trigger work. You wont be disappointed. Ill try to get a picture or two up of the targets from yesterday. Damn i feel so much better getting that off my chest lol, well off to work.

    do you carry your weapon with you? I am on the fence about a trigger job myself. I feel 3.5lbs may be to low for a carry weapon.

    How much improved was the reset on the trigger in term of travel and positive click sound and feel?

    Travel to reset is reduced and there is a definitely noticeable click when it resets I suggest trying to find a buddy that has one done and trying it for yourself. It really is surprising how much a xd trigger can be improved

    Kirk,

    Did you get just the trigger job?

    Has anyone done the trigger job and the factory clean up?

    Correct just the trigger job on my xdm45. I think on my xd9 service though ill have the factory clean up and all pins replaced when I send it in for a trigger. It could definitely use a factory clean up, I treat that old nine mil like a red headed step child lol

    Springer did my open gun and it's great. I had the comp trigger and cleanup done. I don't carry it, but I just got a 3.8 that I do carry and will be sending him soon for trigger work.

    I mentioned this on another trigger thread, but Springer Precision is definitely the way to go. I bought the trigger kit a week ago, and installed on my xd45 in less then an hour time from disassembly to assembly. my factory trigger pull went from a sloppy 5.5 lbs. of pull to a clean 3.5lbs. Some of you that are more mechanically inclined could buy the kit for $80, and install yourself with a few cheap gunsmith tools, saving the trouble of shipping and extra costs.

    I'm also on the same fence. The reports I have been able to see myself and from what I have heard/seen/read from the professional trainers is they recommend is a minimum of 5lbs. They are in somewhat the same agreement that if you are in a negative situations that with the adrenaline flow that you would not even feel the trigger and could accidentally shoot without even knowing. Just the rush of adrenaline in the blood flow could cause you to accidentally pull the trigger if you are in a situation that calls for your finger to be on the trigger.

    Yeah, you could keep the finger off the trigger until needed but the issue is when you do have to place the finger on the trigger.

    I just don't know...you can't really train for this. You could perform the stressful training type sessions where you run, shoot, run more, and shoot again; but, you still aren't getting that rush of the "fight or flight hormones" to know how it will affect you. These same "professionals" will also go one to say that they think this is why the accurate shooters miss their targets. The most recent version of this that I saw was on the Personal Defense TV show on the Sportsman Channel where Massad Ayoob touches on the rush of hormones and that the firearms shakes in your hand...


    Good Luck And Be Safe!!!
