Can it be done, and what should it cost by a smith? I'd like a softer trigger pull.
There are no adjustable trigger parts unless you can get them to try bending something.

Mine's at Taurus, Miami right now for a very rough and hard pulling trigger. But they told me that there was only one spring available, so I'm just hoping a slicker firing pin barrel will help a huge amount.

Their service people assured me that if the pull was anywhere between 4 and 7 pounds it was fine. That kind of quality attitude amid constantly jacking prices made me just the tiniest bit - well, I won't use the word "furious." I just won't use it. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: (7 times = perfection)

I'm sure that mine is in between 4 and 7 lbs. Most people that shoot my 24/7 Pro feel like the trigger pull is too long. I am OK with it. I figured out that I do not have to let the trigger all the way out. I can just let it out like 2/3 of the way and it will reset. There seems to be a lot of slack in the front of the trigger pull. Once you pull up the slack, it takes about 5 to 7 lbs to make it fire.

Not too bad, but a softer pull would be nice.

My 24/7 C has a trigger pull of 5# on the SA and 6# on the DA stroke. I have heard that with use it will get a little better.

It appears that that slack has to do with the second strike capability, from what I've read. Looking at it you can see the bar travel a good quarter inch before touching anything visible.

Mine had about 1/16 inch of pure slack, before the trigger actually touched anything. I don't know if they will take that out or not.

i have found that dry firing (with a snap cap) a lot helps the trigger actuation. it, like all mechanical things, needs some "breaking in". i have probably shot 700 dry fire rounds through my 24/7 45 acp, and the trigger has smoothed considerably. after about 500-600 "shots", i lubed all the trigger parts with lucas gun oil, and the trigger pull got even better. still a little heavier than needed, but i am not planing on using this in competition shooting matches. for fun shooting, and ccw, it works just fine. my 2 cents worth. d.s.

I did several hundred with snap caps in mine. I don't suppose it REALLY got worse, but it got no better. I gave up and sent it in.

I went to the gun range the other day with my friend. He has just bought an XD-45 Compact. This is the same friend that had previously told me that my aim would improve if I have a trigger job done, after he fired my 24/7 Pro.

After he shot a few rounds in the XD, he said "I'm gonna have to send this in to Springfield for a trigger job. They said for $250, they can get it between 2.5 and 3 lbs."

I told them that nobody here at the forum has really figured out a trigger job for the 24/7 Pro yet. I also told him that besides having such a LONG trigger pull, this one seems to be decent to me, and that Taurus's specs were 4-7 lbs. I also explained to him about the second strike trigger, and that the rumor is that is why the trigger is so long.

He dry fired my gun, and said "Your trigger pull is so much lighter than mine." So I dry fired his XD.

He's correct. ;D

I agree with your statement. I own a XD40 SC and I love the trigger and the ease of rapid fire handling(.5-.75 sec/shot). The XD's, like Glocks, Kahr, S&W M&P, and most other striker-fired DA/DAO handguns are decent triggers and the best I have ever felt are on my Kahr PM40(5.0#) and my XD40 SC(5.75#). I can tell you that the trigger in the SA mode on my 24/7 Pro is 5.0# in SA and 6.0# in DA. The trigger feels different in that the reset is even shorter than on the Kahr and XD and you do NOT have to let the trigger reset all of the way, mine only requires just 1/4" to reset into SA after each shot. This is a very crisp and clean break of the trigger. I can tell you that the trigger is just as nice as the SA 4.5# on my Beretta 92FS and the 0.5# difference I need a scale to account for as the 24/7 feels just as nice. The DA trigger travel on my 24/7 is just under 5/8" and only 6# and again, a smooth pull with relatively little stacking and a crisp break. I have been practicing trigger control by using a snap cap(highly recommended) and have noticed that after about 400 snap cap shots and only 200 rounds down range, the weight is still at 5# but I feel the trigger getting smoother from breaking in. I can tell you that you have not felt a hard trigger until you have shot either a KT P11(hammer strike DAO) or a S&W Sigma(incredibly hard, striker-fired) pistol :eek: . The 24/7 Pro trigger is not as nice as a $900-$1200 Kimber 1911 but it isn't far off either and you can have 3 or 4 24/7's for that price.
Tell your friend to skip the $250 trigger job for his XD and buy a Taurus 24/7 Pro in 45 ACP. ;D
Be safe.
