    Here is my three:

    Browning Buckmark Hunter
    Springfield XDm 4.5 9mm
    Heckler & Koch 45 (not USP)

    I can shoot these things pretty darn well, although switching between 6 O'clock sites on the XD and dead on sites on the HK takes a little bit to get redialed in, and the Hunter doesn't like to play when it is dirty, but still throws them out there quite accurately condisering.

    I feel that I have hit my limit with these guns, practice is not improving the spreads. I think it is time to get a little radical. Send them out to become what I want them to be.

    I know they all need trigger work, especially the HK45, just not getting it done for the money, luckily the rest of the gun makes up for it by far!

    XDM is super accurate, but you have to be very patient to take up all of that travel before it locks up, and then deal with a little creap, and lots of overplay.

    the buckmark, possibly my favorite to shoot, is super accurate untill it starts to get a little dirty after 100 rounds or so, and then the trigger begins to act funny. Lite one shot, then you really have to pull for the next, not good.

    Don't get me wrong, I have zero intentions of selling any of them, but need someone who can help me take them to the next level.

    I have read a lot about accurizing, and trigger jobs. Anybody have some good or bad experiences that I can learn form?

    I can recommend you get the trigger job on the H&K. Call Leeds in Tacoma. They have a H&K amrmorer there. Maybe the know a guy in your area.
    I would call Springfield talk to the custom shop guys.

    The buckmark still have the mag disconnect installed? If so, take it out, trigger will improve.

    What's your gripe on the HK? Personally, I think my USP has one of the better factory triggers out there, not that it couldn't be improved. Just curious what you don't like about it.

    Try these guys for the XD....couple of friends have had them do theirs with positive results.

    Thanks, guys.

    Yeah, the Buck still has the mag spring in the grip. So you suggest taking out the T shaped spring, or the link running the length of the grip?

    Buckmark- remove the mag disconnect and flip your sear spring.

    XD- check with springer precision.
