Was able to make a quick trip to an indoor range today after clearing out from a substantial winter storm. You can certainly use this to post on your site if you would like. Received the pistol back as promised Nice fit and finish on the Dawson adjustable sights and really help with precision shooting. This, coupled with the trigger job, had me punching the center of the X-ring with just 1 move of the rear sight! WOW -- what a difference these modifications make to bring the XD up to "competition ready". Thanks, Scott, for the great job! This shooter is a happy camper!
I received my trigger upgrade kit for my XD 45 today (two days AHEAD of schedule I might add). A little bit of sanding on the trigger bar, and it was more than I had ever hoped for.
I never thought my trigger could be so light and crisp; it feels more like a custom single-action revolver than a polymer pistol. Phenomenal product, thank you very much.
With some coaching from you I completed the trigger job on Thursday and was able to test it out Saturday morning. It is great , About 4lb pull, shorter and smoother. I didn't think a trigger job would make that big of a difference but I was wrong. I can't wait for the next match to show it off. Thanks for a great product and the help.
Thanks for the very prompt service with the installation of the Dawson adjustable with fiber front on my XDM last week. I sighted in over the weekend and they worked great. I am looking forward to doing business with you in again, provided our government doesn't get stupid with our 2 nd amendment rights.
I just wanted you to know how much I'm enjoying my XDm 9mm. I have shot a couple of competitions with it and I can tell you that my scores have improved and I love the gun. I have put over 1,000 rounds through it without a single hiccup. The Dawson sights are helping a lot and I also appreciate your help with supplying the extra mags. All my shooting buddies are impressed every time they dry fire my gun. Their eyes get huge when the feel the light trigger and short reset. Thanks again and I know we'll continue to do business in the future.
Thank you so much for a job well done with my XD-45 tactical. I am really hapy with it. The pistol is a shooter. I can consistelntly shoot with my reloads a 1.25-2" 5-shot group @ 25 yards. I have also shot it @ 50 yards and my best group so far has been about 2.5" 5-shot group.
By the way, I your accurized XD-45 Tactical so much that I would like to convert my XD-45 4" service model into a second XD-45 5" tactical pistol? Can this be done? If so, how?
I realized that I have never thanked you for the *truly excellent* work on my XD .40 cal - I am extremely happy with the new sights and trigger work. I'd be very happy to recommend your work to my shooting colleagues, and will definitely send you any future XD's I buy for more work.
I want to thank you for the really quick turnaround time on my XDM! You did an outstanding job on the trigger, and thanks to you, I qualified for my department a few days later and shot a 96/100! My first time to shoot the pistol, including off-hand firing! Now that XDM is my duty weapon, and will be for a long time. I will most assuredly be sending you more work in the future from myself and referrals! Have a Merry Christmas, and Thank You!
Took the XD to the range yesterday and put probably 300 rounds through it. The trigger is far superior to the stock trigger. Perhaps it's me being so used to my Glock triggers, but a couple of times I short stroked it, I guess. Is it better to reset after returning all the way forward, or is there a reset sweet spot, like on the Glock? What's great, though, is that the return is so short that it won't be a big deal. I just have to get used to it. In addition, there was nary a hiccup in what it digested (Precision Delta hardball reloads, Blazer hardball, Lawman hardball and old Starfire hollowpoints). Although I didn't shoot the pistol for accuracy before I sent it to you, I'll say that in a 52 round slowfire string from the 25 and 15, basically all I had was a hole in the X-ring smaller than my fist. Refreshing, since the Springfield Armory Lightweight Champion I swapped for it shot all over the place. I'm very pleased with the work done on this pistol.
I received my XD service pistol back from your shop last Friday. Took it to the range on Sunday. I want to thank you for the fine work done on my pistol. Sights are great! Trigger is much better than the factory setting. The gun functioned flawlessly. Put 200 rounds through it, as I was testing some various reloads. It'll never be a 1911 in accuracy, but now it does exactly what I want it to do: quickly put a large number of rounds into the torso area of a silhouette target.
You can be sure I will be recommending you folks to other XD shooters. And, as a native Oregonian, it is always a pleasure to do business with folks in my old "homestate".
Got my .45 back yesterday and went to the range. Thank you for the top quality work and all your answers to my questions. That trigger job is wonderful and I don't know how I went so long without it. I will be sending in my 9mm when I get some money next month and definitely recommend you and your company to any one that will listen. Thank you,
My prized possession arrived late this afternoon. By the time I arrived at the gun shop there were 3 or 4 guys that wanted me to sell it to them. The comments were incredibly favorable especially by the shop employees. They had never seen such attention to detail and felt that SA should do this from the factory as an option. You obviously enjoy your passion and it shows in your work.
I'm leaving town in the morning and can't wait to return so I can get to the range to experience your magic. I'll let you know how it goes. Until then…this one is a beauty and worth all of the worry and expense. The FBI must like me as they approved my application on the spot. Another guy was told his was “delayed.”
Thanks so much for everything and hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. You sure made mine a bit more special.
I would just like to thank you for your fast turnaround on the shipping and custom trigger job on my XD-9. I sent it out on Monday morning and got it back on Friday afternoon. I took it to the gun range on Saturday morning and what a difference in the shooting and handing of my XD-9. It now has a nice clean crisp pull and I was getting a nice grouping right out of the first clip at 7 yards. I have a friends that also have XD-9 and a few friends are looking to buy an XD-9, and I am going to let them try out my XD-9 and give them your name and E-mail address. They do not like the stock trigger pull but they really do like their XD's. Thanks again for a really nice job.
Boy, I don't know what kind of voodoo you do, but the gun shoots amazingly
well! I went to the range Saturday, and put the target at my normal 7
yards. I kept several magazines within the 10 (on a silhouette), so I
moved it out to 25 yards. I kept every shot but three within the 9 ring!
Now I know that's not your level of shooting, but I was thrilled.
Now, I will say I also got watched your 2 min video on how to grip the XD,
and practiced that on my Glock while you had my XD. But whatever the
reason, I am one extremely satisfied customer!
Got the gun back last Thursday and went to the range on Saturday. Wow! What a difference. The trigger and reset are super and I love the Dawson sights. The gun definitely shoots better than I do but I'll try and work up to it. Worth every penny.
Thinking about 4" XD in .45 for carry and if I get it I'll ship it to you for a trigger job and cleanup.
So I finally had the opportunity to shoot my XD .45 yesterday and I have to say thank you. That is the best damn handgun that I have ever shot, I can stop my buying frenzy of .45s for sure. I was able to put almost 400 rounds through it yesterday and the groups were all incredibly small and dead on. Thank you very much for the work that you did and for the timely manner that you got the gun back to me in. Hopefully we have the opportunity to work together again in the near future.
Fed Ex just delivered my XD-45 Tactical. I love the sights and the trigger is the best I've encountered on a service weapon. I'm scheduled for the range on Thursday. I'll let you know how I did. Thanks for the quick turn around. It was a pleasant surprise.
Well I got my XD45acp and XDm back Friday and shot a USPSA match today with the XDm. HOLY SHIT the XDm is a totally new gun. I couldn't believe what a difference it made in my accuracy…….I had about 90% A hits w/o any misses or penalties! For me this was a HUGE deal since I'm VERY new to USPSA matches and tended to miss a few and maybe hit around 60% A hits. Now that my hits are on I can work on speed to improve my overall score. Based on my outing today with the Springerized XDm several of my shooting buddies want to play with it and are talking about sending their XD's your way. Thanks so much for the great work.
.100 front sight, sure is easier to align than a wider one. Don't know what else we could have done that would have made it any better. Maybe gold plating?? Nah, that would be ostentatious. Can't wait for some range time. If I can achieve, anywhere near to, the potential that this gun has I'll be the happiest camper on this mountain.
Appreciate the good work from you and your guys.
I am sure from reading your website that you have more than enough rave reviews to post, but I wanted to write and say that the work you did on my XDm is nothing short of amazing! I put 200 rounds through it within an hour of getting it back this morning and couldn't be happier! The X grip is unbelievably tight and the trigger is smooth as silk. My only recourse is I have to do is get better at my shooting now that the pistol is not the issue. The work is outstanding, the turn around exceptional, and the value for the dollar spent is far greater than I could have hoped for. Thank you for opening me up to how good this pistol can be!
I got my gun today, ran out and put a few rounds though it. All I can say is WOW! What a difference Great work, Scott. Thank You!
I just installed your trigger kit. Got the trigger pull down to around 3-4 pounds with about 1/4 inch of pull and 3/16 inch reset. WOW what a difference. Just wanted to say thanks and this kit kicks a$$.
I sent my XD9 Sub-compact pistol to you for the Combat/Carry
job last Friday. They just delivered it back to me a little while ago. Wow, great turn around time.
Thanks so much. Now I have to take it to the range this weekend to check
the new front sight and the trigger.
Sorry I have not written sooner. I just want to thank you for the work you
performed on my XD-9. The TFO sights and grip decal are excellent and I
can't say enough about the trigger job. Almost all of the take-up has been
removed. The trigger reset is crisp and minimal and the trigger break is
I will definitely be sending you my other XD as soon as I can. Keep up the
great work and thanks again for the quick turn-around.
I received my XD Service .45 ACP and have been to the range. The sights, extended magazine release and trigger worked flawlessly. My accuracy is much better and the trigger is feels great. Thank you for your craftsmanship. I will definately recommend you to my fellow XD owners!
I just wanted to thank you for working on my (2) Springfield XD45s. I just got them back today via Fed EX and I plan to check them out at the local range this weekend. I was particularly impressed by the way you were able to get smooth, consistent trigger pulls with both my 5" and 4.25" versions, as well as take up the slack in the trigger re-set, something that the stock XD really needs. The very short turnaround time was also very impressive, as I am accustomed to waiting months for work to be performed by other gunsmiths.
I received my XD9 back from you at 10:15 AM, and had it on the range shooting it at 1:30 PM. Ya, I know. What toke me so long to get there! Hey, afterall this is Miami and the traffic stinks. I believe it was Jackie Gleason who use to say, "How sweet it is". The trigger job you did rivals some of my $4000 race guns. Nice job! I can't wait to shoot it in an IPSC match on Sunday. I'll have another one for you shortly. My dealer hasn't shipped it yet!
I will have to say that this is a great product and would recommend it to any shooter. It reduced trigger travel tremendously, and the new weight is great for a crisp break. Everything dropped right into my Xd 45 with no problems. I always like my Xd but never really cared for the long trigger pull, so I never carried the weapon because I entrusted my 1911 with my life. I went to the rang to test everything with my friend who is a former Navy Seal and I quote him when he said " Wow, its been along time since a pistol has surprised me. This guy must know what he is doing." It has done everything you stated it would and when we drained 300 rounds through the weapon with only the sounds of rounds hitting steal down rang, I told my buddy that my 1911 maybe put in the safe for good!
I'm not sure if you will remember working on my X D this last week. But, I have got to take this time and write this Thank You note. Because! I had a very good stage at the National Match this week, the statge was 18. Fore a little back-ground. I was contestent 325 in Production. Though you will not be able to veryfiy this statement due to my not making the minor power factor and there-fore not recieving an offical score. I will tell you that I was un-offically 1st on that stage with a hit factor of 5.14. This I attribute to your timely excellent work on this firearm. This XD 9mm worked with your parts due to your Craftmenship on each and every Stage. Not one jam, Not one miss-fire, Not one lite primer strike. Through the rain in the mud and yes even in the sunsine. On each and every Stage it did it's work. Thanks!
I finally went to the range following the trigger job you performed and realized what a difference it made. The new Dawson Precision night sites are also great. My groups at 30 feet are amazing (easily within 2 inches). That is much better than before (embarrassing 6 inches). I am brand new to pistol shooting but this gun is so easy to shoot well. I can shoot it as well as or better than my Kimber CDP. My only complaint is that I will need a new holster as the new DP front site is a little higher than the factory site and makes it difficult to get the gun out of the Blackhawk holster. Thanks for your good work.
Just wanted to say thank you. Trigger is nice a smooth, 2 clicks to the left and I was zeroed. Hope to send you some more business soon.
A few months ago you did some work on my XD-9 (trigger, sights, etc). I've had a chance to put a couple thousand rounds through it and this gun is great. You did a fantastic job on the trigger and when I let other people shoot it they can't believe that a "plastic gun" can shoot so well. I like it so much I'm going to get another one after the first of the year. Of course, I'll be sending it to you so you can do your magic on it.
Just wanted to thank you for the advice. I put the parts in tonight. I put in the sear and then installed the trigger bar, started by filing the forward stop first so that the striker released properly, and so that I had enough upward movement on the firing pin block to release it. Then I filed the rear stop until the trigger safety released cleanly, and there was a bit of take up. I seem to have just a little over 1/4" of travel overall, half of what I had to start with. Also, the sear seems to break quite well. I like the feel of this set up much better than the stock one, as I have small hands and this will make things much easier for me. Will not be able to shoot it until next monday, but I am sure it will be great. When I have the cash I will no doubt be putting this stuff in both of my other XD's, and perhaps my wife will want it for both of hers as well. Time will tell. Thanks again for all your help on this, much appreciated!
After wrangling with Fed Ex to get my XD (they told me they called and my office wasn't open so they were not going to deliver it... I let them know that was not possible since I was IN my office at 9am, and the phone number they had was my cell and I received no calls... so I picked it up at their depot), I now have pistol happily back in hand. I am SO HAPPY with the work thus far. I can't wait for range time. Thank you so much for the exceptional level of craftsmanship and care you took with my pistol.
Took my XD 9T out to the range and all I can say is "Wow!" The trigger is so different. I rented a standard XD tactical to compare the two. The best word to describe it is 'crisp.' My shot placement was noticeably improved although I don't know if it was because of the trigger, your sight installation, or the factory cleanup that you did. Probably all three with the added confidence that the work you've done has made my XD the best it can be. What made the service over the top was that you answered all of my emails so promptly. I've passed out your card at a couple of Springfield dealers and let a couple of guys dry-fire the trigger. They were really impressed - and even more so when I told them how much I paid - and the short turnaround time. The only problem is now I can't blame the gun! I will definitely ship my CZ-75 SP-01 to you when I decide to do some work on it.
I have just recently purchased your drop-in Springer Precision trigger kit and trigger bar for my Springfield XD 40 Tactical. I shoot this gun on occasion in USPSA Production Division. These two items are awesome my production gun shoots just as good if not better then my two STI Edge 40 Limited guns with 2.5lb trigger pull. The trigger action is fast, crisp and precise as I need it. The pre-travel and reset is awesome. I would highly recommend these two items to anyone who's trying to improve the function of their gun (XD). Scott, thank you for your great service and assistance. Keep up the great work.
I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for developing a fantastic trigger kit for the XD series pistols. I recently purchased the kit and a set of Tru Glo night sights. I received the parts yesterday and fit the sear and trigger bar last night. I installed the sights today and took the gun to my police department's range. After shooting approx. 150 rounds, all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!
Your parts have made the gun feel like a totally different gun. One of the problems I have always had with the XDs is the trigger reset. The trigger now feels more like a pivoting 1911. In my department, we can carry just about anything we want to as long as it is at least 9mm. When I started, more than half of the department carried a 1911. Now, we have about 10-12 people carrying the XD series including some of the diehard 1911 shooters. I am planning to get the word out on your trigger kits for the other XDs.
We got Caleb's gun back today and we went out this evening to shoot after he finished his homework. He had no trouble shooting it. The reach for the trigger was perfect and he handled the recoil very well. Thank you for a fine, quality job with attention to who was going to be shooting the gun. I really appreciate it. Caleb said he really enjoyed shooting it. It was a little dark for video, but later this weekend when we go shoot again, I'll get some video to send you so you can see your work for him in action
Thanks for the great service on my XD9 Tactical. The competition trigger is fantastic and the envy of the club. It's impressive that I shipped you the gun on Monday and I was shooting a PPC event on Friday and a steel plate shoot on Sunday of the same week! Nicely done!
got my xd 45 back last friday,put about 200 rounds through it over
the weekend.cant say enough about the work you did,the tru-glow sights are
great,big improvement over the factory sights,and the trigger work is awsome,i
really like the xd pistols my only bitch was the trigger,but now problem
solved,really tightned up my groups,ive recommended the xd's to a lot of my
friends and now i'll be recommending they send them off to you for trigger work.
could'nt be happier
I took the XD to the range last evening. Your work, completed in 4
days including shipping, has produced a weapon that rivals my Springfield
1911 (Black Stainless PX9152L). Just like the 1911, I am able to place 1" groups @ 15 yards with no problem. When I first purchase the 5" XD 45 ACP I was disappointed with groupings and consistency but you have cured that problem. The trigger job is superior and the Dawson Sights are just great. I will be sending you another 4" XD in the very near future.
Received my XD45 back today. You did a really nice job on it. The trigger
pull is much much better and the sights are a big improvement over the
Thanks for the great job and the great customer service,
Scott the trigger work on my XD was outstanding and the service was faster
than a speeding bullet. You will getting more work from myself and friends
in the near future
Shipped you my 45 XD on Thursday, received it back with a 4.5 LB trigger, new TFO sights, polished feedramp on Tuesday. Don't you sleep? Anyway, the trigger job is very nice, seems like a totally different gun. I might just have a new carry gun.
I just wanted to drop you a line and say THANKS for the great service. I picked up my XD yesterday evening and was at the range today.. What a difference! I'm certainly NOT a marksman, but this was one of my best sessions at 10 yards I've had!
Just wanted to thank you for the great work you did on my XD45acp Tactical. The trigger feel is phenomenal. My groups have tightened up significantly. Interestingly my girlfriend, an absolute novice shooter, saw an even greater improvment. She had been pulling her shots down and left, considerably off target. After your trigger job she is now consistently putting her shots inside the 8 ring at 7 yards. This is a huge improvement which I attribute directly to your work.
Your service was phenomenal. Both your responses to my inquiries and the speed in which the work was done were phenomenal. I would highly recomend your services to both experienced, and perhaps even more so, newer shooters of the XD.
I just wanted to share with any XD owners out there considering a trigger job my experience with Springer Precision. Scott was an excellent fellow to work with throughout the whole affair. He responded very quickly to any and all questions in a generous manner, explaining various things to me without that "annoyed tone" to his typing. So alone on Customer service, I rate him at an A plus. I had him do a 3lb trigger on my XD which also reduced the travel and reset and crisped up the break. His turn around was just short of astounding, less than 2 days! That's right, I shipped on Tuesday, he recieved weds and shipped thursday, I received it on friday.
After breaking her down to peek inside and giving her a nice bath to remove any possible leftovers, I took her out for a test drive. It was like a brand new pistol! Take-up was reduced to about 1/8" and the break came out right at the 3lbs I requested. Reset was also at about 1/8". Now all this is from a trigger that normally felt like a 1/4 MILE takeup with a muscle contracting 9lb break. The neatest part to the whole deal is the fact that his work is fully reversable unlike a few others out there offering trigger jobs.
Satisfied? Of course I am, and in MHO, I believe he is going to make quite an impact in an XD's overall preformance. As for the prices he charges combined with the amazing turnaround, he is surely beating out a few others. This is not meant to slight any other 'smiths out there, but merely based on my personal experience with Springer
Scott is definitely one of the best. he recently did my trigger and it is unbelievable. it has put a lot of smiles on a lot of ppl's faces at the range. i can't stress enough how great of an experience you will have. here's my experience and i am sure there are many more just like it.
i talked to him a week before i planned on sending the gun out. we worked things out and i dropped of the gun on monday. it got to scott's place on tuesday and i received it back on thursday, OF THE SAME WEEK! scott picked up the extra shipping when i didn't send him the correct amount for that and didn't even ask for it back. scott has definitely gone above and beyond for me and i wholeheartedly recommend his services.
Most of you guys may not believe that someone else has perfected the xd trigger but i have felt the others and scott's edges past them. you don't loose anything so drop him an email and get a lightning fast action.
I have had two trigger jobs done by Scott so far. His work is second to none. He does literally make the trigger feel like a very good 1911 trigger job. I just bought a new XD9 Tactical that will be on its way to Scott soon. I'm looking forward to battling with the Glocks in the USPSA Production class
TEN of us from TXDPSA.com sent our guns to Springer Precision last week to have our triggers worked on. We were on a time crunch. Guns were sent on Monday. They arrived to Oregon on Tuesday and delivered back to Houston on Thursday. The match was today, Saturday. Needless to say Scott met and exceeded our expectations. The box of guns arrived back to Houston on Friday. Talk about service!
The triggers turned out very nice. Pre-travel is pretty much gone. Maybe 1/8" is left. The break is clean and reset short. My trigger was set at ~2.5#. Just the way I like it. Most were 3# jobs.. There were two others that had ~2.5# triggers. Most of us shot our guns today at the local match. There wasn't any trigger job related failures. Our guns ran like they were supposed to. Everyone that tried out the triggers liked them.
Without stepping on anyone's toes, I personally like this trigger job better than the other guy's. I've owned one before so I can make that judgement. Just to be fair, both do a spectacular job each with their own method. Scott was really helpful with the whole process. Customer service is top notch. He was easily accessible when I had questions about the trigger jobs. He didn't leave us in the dark and actually gave us a group discount.
What I can tell you is this..... THAT TRIGGER JOB ROCKS!
I got the 2.5lb trigger and it is smooth. I had no problems with it at all and it shot very well today! This is deffinitely going to be my competition gun from here on out! I am looking forward to shooting it more now and cant wait to get it back to the range! (just gotta buy some more ammo)
I would like to thank Scott for the excellent work and AWESOME turnaround time!
I will give you mad props everywhere I go!
