This Guide Rod will fit XD(m) 4.5 and 5.25 models in 9MM, 40SW and 45ACP caliber.
The "Hammer" Guide Rod by PistolGear, modeled after the aggressive texture found on a framing hammer, is a compilation of feedback collected over the years. XD(m) customers required a means of keeping their gun in battery after holstering. Perhaps you have noticed when running a light spring or an "old" spring, your gun is easily knocked out of battery.
By offering a guide rod where the end of the guide rod extends beyond the end of the stock barrel (on 4.5 model only), the slide is better protected and less likely to be knocked out of battery when holstering or if the weapon was to be place against a hard surface like a window or dropped to the floor. This product is ideal for those customers such as police officers and those with CCW permits where the gun must be ready at all times.
And, for those who shoot USPSA and IDPA, have you ever arrived to a port that required you to push the port open with your hand? With the Hammer Guide Rod, the rod can be used like a battering ram, knocking the port open allowing you to keep both hands firmly on the gun's frame.
