Lite strike

Recommended Posts

I have a 4.5 9mm XDM, PRP 3lb trigger, 14lb recoil spring, getting lite primer strikes. Does anyone make a longer firing pin, or any suggestions to get a better strike?

Factory ammo or reloads?

 

If it's reloads then check to make sure your primers aren't sitting too high.


My press developed a little wear under the priming section and started to seat primers a little high, so I was getting light strikes, FTF, etc...

I think your firing pin spring is light if you put in the lower weight recoil spring. Same thing happened to me and I had to take out the firing pin spring sent with the replacement spring, and put the original back in.

Another good idea, going to clean it up and if I can find the original, I'll put it back in.

+1. My experience as well.
