I want to get my XD9 sub trigger to about 4# and have the overtravel fixed. Should I send it to Springfield? Who else does this kind of work? If you have had it done who did you use and what is your opinion?

On the XD Forum, http://www.pistol-gear.com/ is mentioned a lot as they recommend http://www.canyon-creek.com/ for trigger jobs. Just look under PISTOLSMITHING.

Tom Novak, Novak's Handgunner Outlet. He has done some work for me (not XD) and it was good. I did handle an XD he worked the trigger on which was quite nice, sub 3#. http://www.handgunneroutlet.net/

Thanks do you guys know if the Springfield work maintains the warranty. I guess I should just call them and ask.

SA's in-house work does maintain the warranty; however they are relatively slower than the aftermarket. Expect 1-2 months. If you have the work done outside, only the parts worked on will be excluded from warranty; the rest of the parts are still covered.
Another consideration: IF this firearm is ever used in a defensive situation, and IF the DA finds out you had the trigger lightened, you MAY find yourself up the brown estuary sans motivational device. Something to think about.

Rich Dettelhouser at Canyon Creek did over my XD40... the trigger is infinitely better and the turn around time was about 2 weeks, less if you don't want your gun refinished.
