I got my trigger kit installed in my XD(M) 40 today (Thanks for help from nonnieselman) and tomorrow I will install another kit in my XD(M) 9mm. The 40 kit works fine. The kit removed a bunch of free travel and once you take up the remaining free travel, bam, a very clean break. I am satisfied with the trigger. Although it's not quite what I'm used to, it's a far cry better than the factory trigger. Hoping that it improves with age!!

If you ever get a chance to meet me I bought a XD (m) 9mm from Rob that was customized by Cannon Creek. I was told that it is as close to a 1911 trigger as possible. I think it is about 2 lbs with very little travel in it.

matt. im sad to say but that trigger in that xdm from rob is lighter than my 1911. First time i shot it it scared me because i was expecting lots of creep and over travel which it didnt have...

I would like to meet more of the forum members. As for the 2 lb trigger, I don't shoot anything with a 2 lb trigger pull except for my 22 pistols. My 45 wad gun is set at 3 lbs and I don't know yet what my XD(M)40 is at but just guessing I would say at around 4 lbs. I've seen too many AD's on large caliber pistols with trigger pulls less than 3 lbs. If "safe loading procedures" are not followed exactly on my 45 wad gun, it can and probably will AD. But a lot of people shoot 2 lb triggers and they work fine for them it's just not for me.

The Springfield is my competition weapon that I shoot at steel or USPSA matches. I couldn't image trying to carry that for a concealed weapon. It took me a month in a half of dry firing to get use to it and I am still getting use to it. The one thing that I do not do is load and chamber a round except if I am at a firing range ready to shoot.

Yeah it WAS really really bad....I can live with it now

Springer kits are very nice...almost sent it To Canyon Creek but did not want to put any more $ in it...the plan was to have a spare USPSA gun but now the G17 is the spare to the G34...

Now I just gotta get time to shoot....too much work

Bottom Line...Springer makes a nice trigger kit

The trigger kits are nice but for a complete job you need to get a polished striker to go with it. The only drawback to this setup is that you have to use a snap cap to dry fire after installing the polished striker or you will probably break the striker retaining pin. Or you could use a fired shellcase with the primer still intact.
