Did you do any measuring of the trigger pull prior to tearing it down for the work?

Sometimes I remember to do a before mods. check/recording of measurements and sometimes I forget. Yeah, I can tell it's better, but I don't have the numbers.

It should be a lot smoother if you do the polishing of the moving parts. Some people polish everything, I seldom polish more than the trigger/sear/sear block moving parts.

Good luck with your work.

They've had it about 8-9 weeks.... I've made 3 payments so far for all the work, hopefully it will be completed by Friday this week so I can pay remaining balance and round trip shipping charges....

It's amazing what a little polishing can do.

Looks amazing and like a great time at the range! The stippling looks really well done(I'm going to guess they must have a machine to be so precise).

Springer Precision is doing the work.... I'm almost certain that they do have a machine... They're alot more reasonable on their prices too....

I'm a huge fan of stippling the frames on the XD. I did all my frames my self. It was great because it allowed my to try/test every step of the stippling. I started basic when worked up from there. Once I found what I like I stuck with it. I feel that once I did the beaver tale and hand webbing area it just sticks. Feels amazing, a few people at my local range that tried my XDsc asked me how much do I charge. Iv had to turn them down as I don't feel comfortable working on strangers arms.

I've thought about trying it myself but was too afraid to mess up.... You did a great job on yours! One of these days, I'm definitely gonna give it a shot....

Gunsmith at Springer Precision emailed me asking if I'd be interested in their new flat triggers they just got in.... Previously they've only been available through them for the XDM and XD 45 models.... Obviously I told him hell yeah! Haven't seen pictures or anything yet, he's gonna be finishing up the last of the cerakoting including the new trigger this week and getting it sent back to me. I've been checking their website as well, hoping they make them available but nothing yet.... I can almost bet they're gonna be a Black Friday hot item! Just thought I'd pass it along....
