I have recently installed the PRP spring kit in my xds 45. I have been doing some research and wondering if you think I should use the stock striker spring or the PRP spring? This is a CCW.

Thanks

Check for potential legal consequences.
Lol none. For that spring.

I'd argue none in general but we've covered it a million times. Its all guessing about hypotheticals



Safety is a momentary choice. Prior performance and certification are completely irrelevant.

Interesting. I have the PRP kit in mine, along with the striker spring, which I wasn't going to use at first (light strikes concerns). Somebody else confirm this, but I measured the wire diameters of the striker springs and they were both the same, yet the PRP spring had two additional coils. Go figure, right? So I have all the springs in mine now and the trigger breaks at a consistent 5.5 lbs. Perfect for me as a carry gun. I also did lots of polishing on the trigger bar, disconnector, sear, and the striker. Plus a little trigger bar tweaking for best fit. I think it's about as good as it's going to get, but now I'm eyeing that Galloway quick release sear. Sommmmebody stop me... :mrgreen:

After installing the whole prp kit, including striker spring, my xds 9mm ate through 100 rds of blazer, 100 rds of laxammo reloads, and a mag of GDHP-SB and not a single hiccup.

Same here, except I only went through two boxes (100 rounds) this time. That wedged striker pin puts a hurting on primers!

Hey banger1... the motto is "fix on it until it breaks!" Yeah! :razz:

Varied from 7 to 20 yards. Supported. Both the XDs 45 and a 10mm Tanfo. Here's yesterday doing double taps from about 5 yards. The second tap is a no-idea-where it's going to go, but it seems to stay in the vicinity! LOL

@bangor1 - I noticed you have xds 4.0 and xdm 4.5
Which one you like the best? I am thinking of adding xdm as a home defence.

The XDM is more of a range gun for me... double stack 19 rounds. I do sometimes carry it in the winter as I can keep it hidden under my bigger coat. I LIKE ALOT. Far more accurate then the XDS. One is not favored over the other.
