look up the people i mentioned on YouTube.Well, it has been a long time, and I am left to imagine that Galloway Precision got detoured into other projects - or maybe the improvements to the XD-E are not readily accomplished. I have seen some general comments on the net that the XD-E trigger is "terrible" but without knowing exactly what the posters mean I assume that some of them are shooters raised on striker-fired guns who find the XD-E's DA trigger pull to be long and relatively heavy. Which of course is exactly what is desirable in a DA/SA trigger. The SA trigger is the one that is light and sensitive, which is right too. So I am hoping that Galloway and others are not concocting a super-light and super-short trigger for the XD-E; better that the person who wants that just buys a XDS and works on that a bit. I wouldn't mind a flat trigger face but don't need it. Also wouldn't mind a smaller, that is less pronounced, hammer; the rowel (ring) could be perfectly round for me, and not stick out to the rear that extra 1/4 inch.
Anything from Galloway Precision on their XD-E gun parts?
I'm seriously considering getting an XDE. Tonight I rented both an XDE and an H&K P30SK. to compare. Being rentals, both these guns were broken in. Yes, the P30SK is double stack, but if I were to find one clearly more shootable than the XDE it's possible I could compromise on the single stack. The HK fit my hand a bit better (as it should, having more breadth to work some form-fitting curves into the grip shape). I thought the Springfield actually had a better double action pull. A bit more "mechanical", but lighter. The HK was a little better in single action. Better or worse, they were close enough that I tend to think like Gun Rover i.e. any "terrible trigger" comments must come from striker folks unfamiliar with DA/SA - unless they would also pronounce the HK trigger "terrible", and that ain't the consensus on the net. If I were buying today it would be the Springfield. There's also a good chance I'd spring for the Langdon trigger upgrade.I have seen some general comments on the net that the XD-E trigger is "terrible" but without knowing exactly what the posters mean I assume that some of them are shooters raised on striker-fired guns who find the XD-E's DA trigger pull to be long and relatively heavy.

Thats what I'm hoping for. I've added straight triggers to my two Sigs one from Grayguns the other from Armory Craft and they made a world of differenceDevelopment for the new XDe trigger seems to be at a stand still. I know the plan is for a trigger and a new hammer combination. My want was a trigger with less curve and a shorter distance from the rear of the trigger guard.
Its been about 5 months when I texted them and they said that they were working on it. I've been looking at the Landlord Tacticals trigger job in a bag its supposed to reduce the trigger pull from 10 lbs to 8 lbs on double action and around 6 lbs on single actionI lost touch with this forum not having shoot my XDe for a while. Have done some mods and part swaps on my CZ and Glocks so looking into internal polishing and looked into the trigger job in a bag.....looks fine but not the difference I am looking for to spend the money and time on.
So I guess the question is ....what ever happened to the Galloway trigger mod and parts package? With all the interest I can not believe they would just drop it. The trigger position works for me if I leave it in the half cocked position...other wise it is to long of a reach. Also a flat trigger was a wish list hope to get on the XDe. I think there are many mods and parts that can be upgraded by Springfield or an after market company that would do wonders for the XDe... Seems like a shame that a good gun like the XDe has not been made into a great gun!
I just found the video on installing the LLT trigger job in a bag. It seems to be a lot of work to lessen the trigger pull a min of amount. A 6 pound S/A is a bit strong. By installing a Mcarbo spring kit and polishing the internals dropped my S/A to near 4# on my CZ P-07. With a double diamond connector, DAT trigger and all internal polishing my D/A Glock 43x is a hair over the CZ single action. The XDe ...IMH opinion has a pretty decent trigger pull and reset from the factory, but it could have an outstanding trigger with just a little help from one of the many firearm aftermarket mod companies.. I would like mods to give me a flat trigger, with a shorter distance for my finger to reach the trigger, and a shorter firing distance after pulling the trigger. The Hellcat, with an Apex flat trigger kit., has more trigger mods avail than the XDe ! I really like the feel of the XDe....is is a shame there are no mods to improve on it because I know it can be a real contender with some of the more popular handguns if there were improvement available.Its been about 5 months when I texted them and they said that they were working on it.
