The PistolGear Heavy Guide Rod for XDM includes a machined Tungsten core and weighs 3.50 ounces / 99.22 grams. This guide rod is 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 XDM 4.5 and 5.25 models in 9MM, 40SW and 45ACP. This guide rod will NOT fit XD, XD Slim nor XDM 3.8 models.
This guide rod uses your factory recoil spring or one these spring options.
If you want your guide rod in a color other than black, please select a color from the "optional color" list and we will Cerakote the rod for you.
