    I am very sure this has been debated up and down:oops:...but...Springer Precision or Springfield Custom Shop for a trigger on xdsc .40? I have contacted them both, Springer will only put the carry trigger in which sounds like what I want anyway for $150 and 10 business days, not sure how much shipping is, sounds reasonable considering a local guy is $250 and a really long time out. Springfield would put the combat trigger in for $145 plus $30 shipping both ways and about the same time frame. I have heard happy stories on both sides of the isle. Is the warrenty issue anything to be concerned about if I don't go with Springfield? Has anybody shot both of these triggers in order to compare them? Is 4-4.5 lbs too light for a carry weapon? Thanks.

    4lbs is generally fine as long as you have properly finger discipline. Both do good jobs and I couldn't tell them apart by feel. SA will warranty the rest of the gun but obviously won't cover the trigger job done by someone else.

    I have talked with both Springer and Springfield, Springfield's price is $145 plus $30 round trip shipping, Springer's price is $150 plug $90 shippings, does that seem outrageous? They said that overnight Fedex is required, why would Springfield be $60 less? Is a Springer trigger worth the extra?

    One may require you to send in your entire pistol. Which would require overnight.

    Any place that is going to do a trigger job will require the whole pistol. How can they do a trigger job with out having the gun?

    I'm guessing Springfield has uppers laying around.

    The upper is not the gun! The frame is the gun, the frame has to be shipped the same as a complete gun.

    I love this!

    But when I shipped my XDSC off to Springfield it was like $75 to overnight it from Texas.

    So $145 for the trigger job, plus $75 for shipping...wow!

    I'll take the $120 I saved, get sights installed and a box or two of ammo.

    Uh... I don't think so... How about $265 plus shipping. I had the Carry Package performed.

    Have you thought about buying the Springer or PRP kit and doing it yourself? No experience with the Springer, but the PRP was was an easy install.

    I just sent my XDM to SA today for the Combat Action job and green fiber optic front sight.
    To me, no one knows more about the pistol than SA. It was a no brainer who to send it to. Plus they warrenty their work! What's not to like?
    Shipping was 30.00 to return it; SA paid to get it there via Fed-Ex.

    I believe it is Because you don't have to pay the full FFL if you ship your gun to a manufacturer, I could be wrong. I had to send my LW Champion back to SA and I don't remember it being very expensive at all.

    There are other options if you are looking to save money. (1) Get the drop in trigger from PRP and install it yourself. (2) Get the ultimate easy fit trigger from PRP and either install it yourself or have a local gunsmith do it for you. I went with option 2. The installation is going to be $35 so im into it for around $140.
