One week ago I sent my XD(M) 5.25" .45 in for an action job that will reduce trigger pull down to 3.5#.

Now I have this worry that it will negatively impact reliability, specifically that I'll pull the trigger and get a "click" rather than a "bang" due to a light primer strikes. Is that at all likely to be a problem or am I worrying for nothing?

I don't don't know what to expect as I've never had a trigger job done on any gun. And I've also never had a problem with light strikes.

Light primer strikes aren't as frequent as you'd think.

It'll probably be fine but if it's gonna be a defensive gun, make damn sure your ammo of choice has a good track record after the action job.

^Thanks. I will be sure to try it with every brand of ammo I have.

Though I don't plan on using it as a defensive gun. It's just a range toy. Hopefully a really cool range toy after a trigger job!

if its just a range toy, then why worry, just play with it at the range, and if it clicks, oh well, try again.

Even for a range toy I have my limits. 1 light strike per thousand: acceptable. 1 per magazine: no way in hell.

And that's not to say that it wouldn't be kept loaded as a home defense gun.

Best part is IF you have light strikes, it'll be covered. That's the beauty of SACS, that and they pretty much are the best at what they do.

Hopefully they don't swap out your striker spring, the only part that should affect firing pin strike.

someone more knowledgeable than me should confirm, but I did not think a trigger job (reducing pull weight, or reducing pre-travel or overtravel) had anything to do with the spring force of the actual striker when it hits the primer.

I agree. I don't think the trigger job will effect spring force. Where is Cuda66 when you need him? He would give us a definitive answer.

Oy Hay-Zeuss!

First let me qualify that I've got none, zero, zilch direct experience with modified XD/m triggers beyond firing a few owned by others.

But, if one can base an opinion based on other strikers...like Fred & sschrick said, as long as they don't muck with the striker spring, it should be fine.

Springfield did the carry package on my XD sc 9 just after I got it. Slick and totally reliable. Very smooth with a nice reset. Springfield knows what they are doing, hopefully you sent it to them.

Depends on whether or not they use a lighter striker spring to get it down to a legitimate 3.5lb pull.

If I put a 4lb stiker spring in my Glock I can get it that low. The XD however may not need it. Stock in a Glock is either a 5 or 6lb spring.

Humans are tastier anyways.

Seems I have nothing to worry about. I tried the new competition trigger using every brand of ammo I have: Fiocchi, Blazer Brass, Armscor, and reloads from Freedom Munitions. The gun performed flawlessly and I fired 450+ rounds, so it's fair to say I seriously tested it.
