The PistolGear Heavy Guide Rod for the XD 45ACP Tactical (5" model) includes a machined Tungsten core and weighs 3.70 ounces / 104.89 grams. This guide rod is FIVE times heavier than the factory guide rod included with the Tactical model.
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 NOT fit the XD MOD.2 Tactical. This guide rod will NOT fit the XDM 4.5 and 5.25 models. This guide rod will NOT fit the XD Service models in 45ACP.
This guide rod uses your factory recoil spring or one these spring options.
