A couple of days ago the guys at Carolina Gunrunners let me borrow their Lyman digital trigger pull gauge for a couple minutes when I stopped by the store. I grabbed my XDs 9mm and gave it 10 pulls on the gauge. I didn’t write down all 10, but here’s the high, the low, and the mean:
High: 7lb 11oz
Low: 6lb 12oz
Mean: 7lb 1oz
These were measured from the center of the trigger, and most of the pulls were within a couple ounces up or down from the mean.
If I would have been thinking, I should have taken a picture of the gauge after each pull to get you a better idea. My own gauge will be here next week, and I have a friend with a pre-recall XDs 9mm that I can compare it to. I’ll get that info up as soon as I am able to measure both pistols side by side.
Here’s my video unboxing the XDs 9mm after the recall:
