    I'm new to XDTalk and just as new to the XDm Experience ... actually, still in the womb, since I live in CA ... breaking her out of jail the very minute she's available.

    I'm used to customizing all my firearms, but this is my first XD. While doing research on triggers, I read here and checked out PRP and Springer. While I know I am going to replace the stock trigger, I just don't know which one is best suited to my needs (or better described as "My Wants"). PRP seems to have some great, if not the best custom XDm Trigger jobs/replacements, but which one? Extreme, Ultimate, Drop-In, just Spring lightening . . .

    IDK which one?

    Best is pretty subjective. What meets my best needs may not meet yours. What's your ultimate goal for the weapon? Competition gun? Carry gun? Home defense? Hip hop video prop?

    I'm truly sorry on you Habitat Location. I'm no trigger expert but try using the "FORUMS SEARCH" and in the "KEYWORDS" Dialog box enter PRP TRIGGERS and search. Then do the same with the Springer. Chances are, members & guest are already talking about them.......;)

    I personally have the prp drop in kit in my xdm 5.25 put the comp springs in. Got the pull weight down to a hair over 3lbs. Not a carry gun! My range gun.

    PRP's offerings and Springer Precision are still currently the top two (counting the former as a single one).

    The other favorite is sending the gun in to Springfield Armory for custom work. Again, there's different packages offered.

    Thanks for the comments guys, and yes ... I should have included more, as to it's intended usage.

    This will be my target/comp gun, so accuracy, short travel and quick reset are my main priorities. I am used to shooting hammered DA/SA guns, with the SA between 4-5 lbs. I'd like a touch lighter and it seems that most of PRP's kits will get me there.

    So, do I pop for $110 PRP setup or go all out with the Extreme PRP version at $165? Without pulling the trigger on any of these, I'm looking to the XDTalk community to help me decide.

    If that's your intended use, send it to PRP and have them do a comp trigger job. Ive always done my own, but I would be interested to see what the difference is on a "professional fitting".

    I have the PRP Extreme trigger in mine with the lightest springs and Mine is less than 2lbs. It took a while to get used to.
