handgun Tip on XDS Mod 2 Spring Install

Recommended Posts

I attempted to install the Powder River Precision Spring (PRP) Kit for my XDS Mod 2 in 45 ACP. I had completed the same instal on the original XDS 45 with no problem. That was a few years ago so I tried to follow the videos put out by both PPR and Galloway Precision. Unfortunately, the Mod 2 version is different in one key aspect that was not mentioned in the tutorials. There is no extractor pin so as soon as you release the pressure on the extractor safety plunger the extractor just falls out. I found this out while trying to find the extractor pin and discovered the extractor had already fallen out on the workbench. I thought I broke something.

I did call PRP for advice. They acknowledged the Mod 2 installation was different regarding how the extractor and extractor springs were installed. The extractor actually installs the same way as a Glock. My tip is this; if you plan to upgrade the springs on your XDS Mod 2 you need to watch how the extractor is removed and installed on a Glock.
