The PistolGear slide stop is very near and dear to our heart. We set out looking to create a solution that would not only help your traditional XD owner, but the non-traditional owner as well.

Our design allows any XD owner, even those who lack dexterity in their thumb, or those who have trouble hitting the slide stop because of small hands, to quickly and easily close the slide from the lock-back position.

We believe that this part will have a great impact on all who give it a try. If you are a competition shooter (like we are), you will find this part to be fast and unobtrusive.

To install, you will need to drift the trigger pin out 1/3 (looking down on frame, left to right). Doing so will allow you to slide the factory slide stop out and up. Place the PistolGear Slide Stop under the spring and align the hole on the slide stop with the hole on the frame. Once aligned, tap your trigger pin back into place. 

If you want your slide stop in a color other than black, please select a color from the "Custom Color" list.  Lead-time to coat optional colors is 10 days. Please note that any part that is Cerakoted with a Custom Color is consider to be a special order item and may not be returned unless the part is deemed defective by PistolGear.

Made in the USA.

Very functional extended slide stop for the XDS. Makes using the slide stop VERY easy now, does not require a lot of effort and my thumb doesn't hurt anymore! Build quality is top notch, looks like it came from the factory! I watched the install video, it only took me two minutes to do it! Very pleased

Love It

This is one of those parts where once you have it on your XD you wonder how you lived without it. Such a simple upgrade yet so very worth it, turns a two handed operation into a one hand deal, sped up my reloads considerably.

I think this could be better, it works with one hand but rather sharp. Could be made more like Glock models that are wider and less sharp on the edges. [PG NOTE: Thank you for sharing your comments. This is the first we have heard of such an issue. We will gladly soften the edges you feel are sharp and recoat the part at no cost to you. You are also welcome to return the part if you are not fully satisfied with its design. Please contact our Support Team via email for further information.

I have purchased five of these and can say it is a product that you will wonder why you didn't purchase one sooner.
The XDS 45 was almost impossible to operate prior to installation due to the heavy recoil spring. The install takes less time to do than it takes to tell about it.
The PG staff are great people to work with and delivery takes about two days.

Now I don't have to shift my grip at all to drop my slide. Thanks PG!

10x better than the factory part

I have been using this slide stop for a few years now, on a pistol that is used for competitions. I bought it when I first saw it on PistolGear's web site. It broke last week so I contacted PistolGear. I was going to buy a new one, but I figured I would see if there was a warranty on it. I didn't want to pay for it twice, as it isn't an inexpensive part. However, I would have paid for another if necessary because I like it so much and it has worked flawlessly for many competitions. Even though the part eventually gave out, it is still worth using. For all I know, the factory part may not have lasted any longer with the use I put on my pistol.

I reinstalled the factory part this week, but there is no comparison to the PistolGear upgrade. If I buy another XD, it will get this slide stop immediately.

PistolGear stepped up and took care of me with exceptional customer service. I also run their big magwell and rubber slam pads, and they have been perfect. The Blade-Tech holster and mag holders from PistolG...
