    i have an xdm-45 and to me, it feels that there is too much play in the trigger and too long of a reset.

    does anyone else feel this way?

    id prefer a hair trigger, one that has a shorter reset / shorter trigger pull.

    the reason i say this is because if i want to fire multiple rounds quickly, ive noticed sometimes i dont let the trigger go all the way forward before pulling it and then i have to let it reset.

    I never felt that way because I do a lot of dry fire practice to get used to the pull and reset.

    No problems rapid fire.

    But a lot of guys get trigger kits. The PRP drop in kit seems to be a favorite around here.

    Sounds like you would love a PRP triggger kit. I love the drop-in kit! If you just eant it more sensitive, have it watch a couple days worth of Cristmas movies with my wife ;-)

    I'm watching the mailbox for my ultimate match trigger from PRP for my 5.25. I put an XDS spring kit in yesterday. Definitely a noticeable difference.

    Pretty easy. You can get step by step vids on PRPs you tube channel.

    Plenty of videos and there are links at PRP's website. I have a 4.5 in .45 ACP. Put the kit in before I ever fired it, but did dry-fire. Very little take-up clean crisp 4# pull, very short reset and no overtravel. Wouldn't have it any other way. The heavy factory trigger is the only weak link with this pistol that I consider to be the best polymer framed pistol. I had an XD Tac in .40 S&W previously and knew what to expect with the trigger when I ordered my XDm sight unseen. So, after a little dry-firing it got the PRP kit. ;)

    does this trigger modification void the warranty?

    I purchased a NEW XDM 45 3.8 compact with the knowledge that I already disliked the trigger pull...

    The PRP ultimate match trigger kit fixed that in one night! I purchased the kit even before my FFL had the weapon in hand!

    It was a WOW :-O moment upon install!

    You Cant enjoy an XD or XDM without a PRP trigger kit.

    I installed it my self without ANY issues. My FIRST gun mod!

    That said,,, I'm NOT a NUBE using basic hand tools and my mechanical skills are pretty good. All in all,,, it worked out EXCELLENT!!!!!

    Very crisp and predictable trigger pull. Just what the perfectionist ordered!

    PRP is the way to go, easy to do if you are not all thumbs.

    You have to release the trigger on any semi-auto to reset the trigger!

    What is a hair trigger in your mind? Most definitions would be a very light trigger pull, possibly dangerous.

    How many rounds have you fired through the pistol? I'd give it at least 1000 before changing the trigger.

    I bought myself the PRP drop in kit for Christmas. Here is a good YouTube video showing the install. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8-ycZ_XxMQ]XDM Drop-In trigger kit.wmv - YouTube[/ame]

    Teddy worked on a Sig P229 for me. He took the DA pull from 15lbs down to 8 and the SA from 5 to 4.

    He's the best trigger man in the country. My life says so.

    He's not too fond of the XD but will gladly work on them. He's a Glock fan with his reasons.

    I apologize in advance and welcome you to the forum..

    BUT;

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA............

    I've been bitching about the sloppy & spongy XD/XDm triggers for 2 years...
    I've bought and sold 4 XD pistols for that very reason.
    See guys, it ain't just me...:cool:

    donkin the only way to make that trigger acceptable is to install a PRP kit in it.
    I put one in my XD45 compact and although it improved the trigger 110%, I still sold it..:(

    PRP~ Perfecting Your XD/XDM!

    donkin if the PRP kit doesn't help, then come over to the dark side Brother...
    Our trigger improvements cost a fraction of the PRP kits and they are easier to do....:mrgreen:
