Help with XD pre-travel

I would like to know how to get rid of the pre-travel for my XD. Is there any way of doing this? I put a shim in between the trigger bar and the frame and it gave me the results I was looking for. Is this the way to go or is there a better way?

Just asking for problems

If someone tells you they can remove the travel they are going to do a number on you'r XD and later you'r going to have to send it back to SA for a repair and pay for it since it won't be covered. It's just asking for problems.

So are you saying that nobody can take the pre-travel out of the XD? If this is true why does SA and others do trigger jobs that remove the pre-travel and lower the #?

It seems logical to me that there is a way to do this but due to business profit they would rather you spend the money. I understand this but there are people like me who can't send there only pistols across America while waiting with no pistol in hand. :-?

There doesn't seem to be as much DIY tinkering on XDs as for other guns like Glock or 1911. I found this for you, however: ... rigger+job

Thanks that was very interesting. It confirms what I have been thinking except I have a different idea about removing the pre-travel. I beleive if the trigger bar pin that goes threw the trigger can be moved back to the right place the same thing can be accomplished. What do you think?

I would like to thank all of you who helped. I did get all the pre-travel removed except for 1/8". It shoots great, thanks again!

There are a couple of different ways to reduce both the pretravel and the overtravel on the XD. The sear can be replaced with one of Springer precision's sear and this reduces pretravel bu about 50%. To that you can add our Trigger bar which dramaticially reduces both overtravel and pretravel and you still have the stock parts to put back in.

Yep I had Scott Springer at SpringerPrecision do my trigger job, has a little over 1/8" of travel, and breaks somewhere around 2 pounds... Very nice trigger job... Ask Tommy Bolton over in Wild Bills Forum... He's pulled it, and likes it better than any of his Glock triggers...
