I was reading on another site that it is possible to buy a drop in "cartridge" that will reduce trigger weight on the XD 40 to approximately 2 lbs.

Has anyone seen, heard or know if this really does exist?

I've not seen any such thing, and as hobocircus said, I'd be next in line for one if they are available. From what I've seen of the XD's design, I don't think this is possible, though.

2 pounds seems a little dicey to me. I certainly wouldn't want to carry it that way.

Me neither, Frenchy. I have had 1911's that folks put hair triggers on, and I always rebuilt 'em with GI parts before I'd carry them on-duty.

Not that I wouldn't keep the other stuff for an occasional grude match, though. But I have no desire for a superlight trigger on my "packin'" XD.

Actually if you can wait another 2 weeks we will have a drop in triger kit that will dramaticially reduce take up, over travel, and reset as well as weight. We tried to have it ready for the Shot SHow but ran out of time....

We also introduced a new recoil spring rod, a magwell, and an extended mag release button at the Shot Show. These are of course in addition to the complete line of match barrels we offer.

You can do a trig yourself with some patience and a fine stone, maybe a Dremel. Clip the striker spring about 1.5-2 coils and you're set!!!
I refuse to cut springs, and refuse to have a hair trigger on a carry gun. Smooth is ok, hair is not.

I have had a trigger job done in both of my XDs, and it took a lot more than this to get it done; including the modification of parts. Cutting coils is a bad idea, and should not be required.

I suggest that trigger work be left to professionals, especially if you use your gun for personal protection or competition.

Well, the original poster did not specify what the gun is for...Competition, carry or just target practice...
If you're carrying then leave the trigger alone. It's set up just fine from the factory.
If competing then send it off and get the whole chalupa!! Spend 200 bucks and get the pretravel, overtravel, reset and trigger pull done...
But I'm very confident in what my 20 minutes of tinkering got me. Trigger is a lot smoother and lighter, but I do shoot USPSA Production division with it. So, it's perfect for what I'm using it for. It's not a carry gun, it's not a service weapon....

I believe someone from the forum came by the booth (Bar Sto Precision) and took some pictures of the display gun we had there. As soon as we get back from the Shot Show and unpacked I will shoot some additional pictures of the individual parts and a complete gun and post them here.

Regarding the trigger kit, we have developed a billet replacement trigger bar that has all the standard modifications already machined into it. This bar with a little stoning on the sear produces an excellent quality competition trigger that has to be felt to be believed.

The other products we are already in production of include a S/S recoil spring rod, an extended mag release button, and a magwell and of course a complete line of match quality barrels.

We have several additional products on the drawing boards and should be annoucing them with the next couple of months.

Some of these products are already on the new web site, the rest will be there shortly. (www.barsto.com)

Mr. Hostetter, any specifics on the price, how soon to expect it in stock, and any info on how much the reset and the pretravel/overtravel improvement to expect over stock setup...maybe 50% or better????

Bob,

That trigger assembly sounds great. I'm sure you'll want to have a small goup of real users test and champion. I will selflessly volunteer my services for the greater good of our fellow XD owners. :lol:
