This is a stainless steel guide for the Springfield XD(M) 4.5 models in 9MM & 40SW. This guide rod includes a bushing that allows you to pair the guide rod with compatible springs in a weight of your choosing. This rod is skinnier than the factory guide rod and is not compatible with the factory XD(M) 4.5 Recoil Spring.
This rod is for the benefit of those customer's running a Compensator or Ported Barrel and need a recoil spring lighter than 14 pounds to help with ejection.
Note: Springs sold separately. Click here for compatible spring options.
This part will not fit the XD(M) 5.25 models.
Installation Guide: Slide the CLOSED end of the spring onto the Guide Rod!
