3.8 compact guide rod and conversion barrel
Hey guys, I am new to the site but I have tried to do my research with in the already open threads. I am picking up my wifes and my own xdm 40 cal 3.8 compacts tomorrow and have ordered the 9mm bar-stow conversion barrels. I have read where there are aftermarket guide rods out there for the compact but I can not find them on any of the web sites. Can anyone confirm this or if you have one, let me know where you got it from? Next question, will the factory guide rod spring work fine when you drop down to the 9mm conbversion barrel or does the spring need to be changed out? I am seeing mixed opinions on this aswell. If you have a 9mm conversion barrel in the 3.8 compact, could you tell me how it worked out for you?
