Crappy XD-S Trigger...Please Help!
Last summer, I decided to update my personal defense every day carry. My winter pistol was the 1911 Government Model. Hold on before ya start laughing. I’ve had this pistol since 1981 and it now goes “Bang” every time the trigger is pulled. That, along with the fact that the groups tend to fall into a ragged hole about and inch and a half wide at 25 yards makes the case for a big pistol VERY strong.
My summer carry was a Charter Arms Bulldog Pug in 44 Special. It’s much reduced size made summer duty only logical…. except I could not hit the side of a barn, even if I was inside the barn! OK, I’m exaggerating a little. I just never quite made good friends with the Pug.
So, I went to the shop and “tried on” everything in 45 ACP to see if anything felt good. I settled on the Springfield Armory XD-S in 45. There wasn’t much of a contest. It just was “right” with the six-round extended magazine. I also added a Crimson Trace Laser Guard. Combined with a Gunfighters Inc Ronin outside the waistband holster and a Blackhawk single magazine holder, I have never felt more comfortable.
Even though the pistol is accurate, it has one of the most horrible triggers! I installed the Powder River spring kit…to no avail. It is maybe a little lighter but still terribly creepy and rough.
Can anyone point to an improved trigger kit for my new XD-S?
