Upgrade for XDM40 question

I am wondering what the single best upgrade would be for the xdm. i know there is not much that you need to do for this fine firearm. but im curious. and is the Don's guide rod really worth it and does it really make a noticeable difference in muzzle flip?

It all really depends on what you want to use it for, and where your strengths/weaknesses lie. Also, how much coin you want to drop. Trigger Job would probably be a number one, but for the money, maybe some sights? I like my Don's Guide Rod, but more because it's a solid piece than for any work it does controlling recoil.

Some questions for you to answer:

1. What is your intended use?
2. Which length do you have?
3. how many rounds have you shot through this gun?
4. What issues, if any, have you had with the gun (accuracy? where are your shots going?)

there are so many options out there, we really need to know more about you to answer

A trigger kit is great.
A guide rod can make a difference, it does for me but before you buy one take a look through my old thread, near the end john_bud (a member) uses tungsten to fill his guide rod for an $80 savings.
OK, I did it. I filled the XDm guide rod w/lead.

1. Mainly Home Defence. but range shooting and plinking.
2 4.5
3. about 400
4. I would like to take care of the trigger it seems a bit stiff. I have noticed that the sights are a bit hard to see in low light situations. i would like to tone down the muzzle flip just a bit if possible. I have owned a Ruger p95. and a smith&wesson 44mag. had to sell them for the move to colorado. if i think of anything thing else ill add it but for now those are the main ones
