"Hammer" Guide Rod for XD / XD MOD.2 Service (4")

Price: $19.99

This Guide Rod will fit XD and XD MOD.2 in 9MM, 357SIG and 40SW.

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 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 (4" Service Models), 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.

Sweet Jeezus!

- 31st December 2018

While browsing pistolgear's website I stumbled across this guide rod. I was not looking to move away from the factory setup but the design of this guide rod intrigued me, so I bought it. I am glad I did. The look is awesome and with a 18 pound spring, I feel the gun shoots softer.

Best Mod Ever!

I love how this looks in my gun! I bought my MOD2 in March and have been considering changing spring weights. When I revisited pistol gear, I notice this new guide rod and bought it along with an 18 pound spring. I could not be more happy with the look and performance of this part. Buy it!
