First of if we are talking XD there is no hammer bieng strike fired .Ivan A. Makarova said:Thanks for the info! Sorry for the noob questions, but I want to understand this stuff before I decide to get a trigger job or not.
So you're saying that I wouldn't have to get a lighter hammer spring as part of getting the trigger pull down to 3 lbs or so?
If I understand correctly, it's the lighter hammer spring that is the main factor in people having probs with light strikes.
Thanks! The XD is my first striker-fired gun, so I wasn't thinking in terms of the striker mechanism not relying on hammer spring like 1911, etc. That clears up my confusion.

Simply a spring agianst the back off the firing pin pushes it foward.
Revolers are whole differnt story.
