I had one of my newly acquired XP's apart the other day and noticed the trigger balance setting down in the stock when I removed the action. What was/is the intended function of this device and I read in some of the posts that it is not installed on custom builds and I was wondering why?

The trigger balance acts as sort of a safety device if the firearm is jarred or dropped (if I remember correctly). It keeps a little more pressure on the sear.
Most, if not all the customs are without this device and a few folks on here remove them from there factory xp's as well. I do not have a balance in any of my xp's and have never looked back. Hth

As bowstryder stated the trigger balance was installed as a safety feature. If the loaded XP was dropped and landed on the muzzle the weight of the trigger linkage and the sudden stop could possibly cause the sear to disengage firing the weapon. Personally, if I were ever to drop one of my XP's just go ahead and shoot me. I have no trigger balances in any of my XP's and have never had an issue. If you install a custom trigger they will not work as well. Practice firearm safety and you should be fine. Also dropping any loaded firearm has the potential to discharge on impact. Hopefully Tom won't ruin you as he cost me a lot of $$$$
