Outstanding Product

- 01st February 2016

I purchased the guide rod and spring for my XD 9mm service a it works perfectly! I have purchased several XD items and quick shipment and perfect fit! Thank you PISTOL GEAR!!!

Thought it was was i wanted

It looks great, but caused cycling issues, even after 200 rounds. Eventually had to go to a smith to get the slide removed, because it kept catching on one of the internal pins and ultimately wouldn't allow for a field strip. After it was shaved a bit, it's still sticky, but can be stripped. Great if you're wanting it for comps, however i would highly advise against putting this on a HD pistol. [PG NOTE: This is the first example of such a problem with this item since 2004. We kindly ask that you email our support group so we can get more information. Thank you.]

Feels great, and seriously helps with muzzle flip

One of my favorite mods done to my XD9
You can feel the difference right away, just make sure you install it properly.

Feels & looks great!

This thing is a great upgrade. Gives the gun a more solid feel during continual fire as well as looking great while doing it.

Very Nice!

I got one of these guide rods and the #20lb recoil spring for my XD.40 and it looks great. Especially with the polished barrel, (polished my own barrel, not purchased). I haven't had the chance to fire it yet because of the weather where I live but will let you know how it works out. I would highly recommend this upgrade. Thanks for the fast shipping and great communication.

Great upgrade!

Shooting a XD40 and installed one of these rods with a 20# Wolff spring, and it NOTICEABLY reduces the sharp recoil impulse of the gun. Allows me to get back on target much faster. One of the best upgrades you can get for your XD, hands down.

As an above poster noted, MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL THE WOLFF Spring in the proper orientation. The closed end of the spring goes onto the rod, and the open end goes into the slide. If you install it backwards and the spring binds during pistol disassembly, whack the back of the pistol sharply with a mallet and the slide should come off (after the takedown lever is up and the trigger has been pulled!).
