Where Can I Get... ? Springfield XD45 Ultimate Match Trigger Kit and Extended Grip Safety

posted on June 26, 2018

The Springfield XD45 is a service-grade pistol that is often associated with a long trigger take-up and fairly low-profile grip safety that can make consistent engagement a bit difficult for some folks. Powder River Precision (PRP) solves these issues with its Ultimate Match Trigger Kit and Extended Grip Safety for Springfield’s XD pistols by refining the trigger pull and enhancing grip safety purchase, respectively. Careful disassembly and fitting is required. Installation instructions are included, and videos available online will help guide even the inexperienced gunsmith through the procedures. During installation, careful adjustments must be made to the overtravel stop by removing excess material at the rear of the trigger shoe, and slight fitting of the sear and grip safety may be required. Our installation time, including the addition of an extended magazine release from PRP, was about one hour, and the new trigger possessed an average pull weight of 3 lbs., 12 ozs.—amounting to a 4-lb. reduction of pull weight, an immediate and noticeable improvement to the functionality of the Springfield XD45. The grip safety and magazine release are available in black or stainless steel. Price: $30 (Extended Mag Release), $57 (Extended Grip Safety Kit), $135 (Ultimate Match Trigger Kit).
