    I too installed the PRP extream kit in my 5.25 Xdm for target and competition only. The trigger pull is excellent. Although I do not have the equipment to measure the pull it is as light as my custom 1911 triggers now. Very nice to shoot now with the upgrade. Be safe.

    Wrote to PRP and they suggest the Extreme Kit which will allow me to use my stock springs, along with their springs to get a weight that I like.

    At the latest gun show, I got a tool that measures the trigger pull, mostly for dialing in my rifles. Once my XDm gets out of Kalifornia jail, I'll install the Extreme Kit and report back which spring config I used to get the best pull for me.

    Just ordered a Ultimate Match Trigger Kit and cannot wait to get it delivered so I can install it. I did not want the pull too light. Supposed to get 3.5 to 4 and that is my target.

    Ok - so git the new trigger installed and it is awesome, much shorter pull, very short reset and feels like right around 4 lb with a clean break. We really like it........:)

    As long as it took to watch the videos about two times and follow along, actually it was a breeze compared to my XDS.

    Wifee shot it yesterday and she was amazed how much of a difference it made in her group size. She even took a picture of her target and sent it to our kids. Before the trigger install she could barley hit the large silhouette at seven yards, when we left the range she was punching 2 to 3" groups.

    Update: Installed the PRP Extreme Trigger Kit and decided to try the 2.5# spring set. Pull was inconsistent, then realized the Pre-Fit trigger wasn't exactly pre-fit, so sanded more down on the over-travel flange (back of trigger) until it stopped travel after the break.

    Tested it, sanded, tested it, sanded until it measured between 2.5# - 3# with every pull. Went to the range and it was easily the best trigger I've shot on a striker fire pistol.

    The below pic doesn't look great, until you consider it was at 30m (almost 100 feet) . . . Very happy with the trigger pull and accuracy with a 2.5# clean break.
