    $12, just came in the mail today. Replaces 2 springs in the XDm to reduce pull weight by about a pound. :bowdown:

    The one circled was replaced and the trigger spring which you can't see. Took about 5 minutes with a punch and a pair of needle nose. My first time stripping a gun so I wasn't sure how it would go.

    Now that I feel more comfortable with the XDm I'm going to order the over-travel stop which requires minor fitting. They also make parts that will reduce the take-up and reset... But I don't have issues with those. Lightened trigger + no over-travel and I'll be a happy camper.

    It's nice having a gun with aftermarket support. :hs:

    Almost 400 rounds through it. After tomorrow morning it will be up to 570 or 620 depending on how much I want to shoot.

    Can't wait to see how she does with the spring kit. :bowdown: Kicking myself for not just ordering the over-travel stop. :o

    Just got home from the range. Groups were tighter with the spring kit installed. Specifically at 10 yards. 15 yards and past my groups were all over but I'm sure that's me.

    Also ran 50 rounds through it with the WX150 running at it did just fine.

    I'm sure I'll be going back next saturday after I install the over-travel stop.:bowdown:

    Or how about getting a round logged right before battery and no way of being able to clear it

    If I remeber the person had to lug it around to a springfield shop as they couldnt ship it. Unless its happened more than once. But nothing like having a live round with no safties working in your trunk
