The PistolGear Heavy Guide Rod for XD(M) and MOD.2 Tactical includes a machined Tungsten core and weighs 3.30 ounces / 99.22 grams. This guide rod is nearly FIVE times heavier than the factory guide rod included with XDM 4.5 and 5.25 models.
By adding a little extra weight at the front of the pistol, you are able to lessen muzzle flip, allowing for faster follow up shots and less felt recoil.
This guide rod will fit the XD(M) 4.5 & 5.25 models in 9MM, 10MM, 40SW and 45ACP, as well as the XD MOD.2 Tactical (5″). This guide rod will NOT fit XD, XD Slim nor XDM 3.8 models.
This guide rod uses your factory recoil spring or one of these spring options.
Installation Guide: Slide the CLOSED end of the spring onto the Guide Rod!
