I'm new to XDTalk and just as new to the XDm Experience ... actually, still in the womb, since I live in CA ... breaking her out of jail the very minute she's available.

I'm used to customizing all my firearms, but this is my first XD. While doing research on triggers, I read here and checked out PRP and Springer. While I know I am going to replace the stock trigger, I just don't know which one is best suited to my needs (or better described as "My Wants"). PRP seems to have some great, if not the best custom XDm Trigger jobs/replacements, but which one? Extreme, Ultimate, Drop-In, just Spring lightening . . .

IDK which one?

Best is pretty subjective. What meets my best needs may not meet yours. What's your ultimate goal for the weapon? Competition gun? Carry gun? Home defense? Hip hop video prop?

I personally have the prp drop in kit in my xdm 5.25 put the comp springs in. Got the pull weight down to a hair over 3lbs. Not a carry gun! My range gun.

PRP's offerings and Springer Precision are still currently the top two (counting the former as a single one).

The other favorite is sending the gun in to Springfield Armory for custom work. Again, there's different packages offered.

Thanks for the comments guys, and yes ... I should have included more, as to it's intended usage.

This will be my target/comp gun, so accuracy, short travel and quick reset are my main priorities. I am used to shooting hammered DA/SA guns, with the SA between 4-5 lbs. I'd like a touch lighter and it seems that most of PRP's kits will get me there.

So, do I pop for $110 PRP setup or go all out with the Extreme PRP version at $165? Without pulling the trigger on any of these, I'm looking to the XDTalk community to help me decide.

If that's your intended use, send it to PRP and have them do a comp trigger job. Ive always done my own, but I would be interested to see what the difference is on a "professional fitting".

I too installed the PRP extream kit in my 5.25 Xdm for target and competition only. The trigger pull is excellent. Although I do not have the equipment to measure the pull it is as light as my custom 1911 triggers now. Very nice to shoot now with the upgrade. Be safe.

Wrote to PRP and they suggest the Extreme Kit which will allow me to use my stock springs, along with their springs to get a weight that I like.

At the latest gun show, I got a tool that measures the trigger pull, mostly for dialing in my rifles. Once my XDm gets out of Kalifornia jail, I'll install the Extreme Kit and report back which spring config I used to get the best pull for me.

Just ordered a Ultimate Match Trigger Kit and cannot wait to get it delivered so I can install it. I did not want the pull too light. Supposed to get 3.5 to 4 and that is my target.

Ok - so git the new trigger installed and it is awesome, much shorter pull, very short reset and feels like right around 4 lb with a clean break. We really like it........:)

As long as it took to watch the videos about two times and follow along, actually it was a breeze compared to my XDS.

Wifee shot it yesterday and she was amazed how much of a difference it made in her group size. She even took a picture of her target and sent it to our kids. Before the trigger install she could barley hit the large silhouette at seven yards, when we left the range she was punching 2 to 3" groups.

Update: Installed the PRP Extreme Trigger Kit and decided to try the 2.5# spring set. Pull was inconsistent, then realized the Pre-Fit trigger wasn't exactly pre-fit, so sanded more down on the over-travel flange (back of trigger) until it stopped travel after the break.

Tested it, sanded, tested it, sanded until it measured between 2.5# - 3# with every pull. Went to the range and it was easily the best trigger I've shot on a striker fire pistol.

The below pic doesn't look great, until you consider it was at 30m (almost 100 feet) . . . Very happy with the trigger pull and accuracy with a 2.5# clean break.

Hi play hard. Several years ago I put in a powder River drop-in trigger. It was fairly easy to do myself but I had a video also. I put it in and I couldn't believe the great difference there was between stock and PRT.this trigger is around 3 to 4 lb now and it makes so much difference in your accuracy! I highly suggest this trigger. Steve c
