    I like the PG model for the narrow profile.

    I've got the XDGuys one, but I would have bought the PG if they would have been in stock when I ordered. It looks like they are still out BTW...
    The XDGuys stop is SHARP - but works exactly as advertised.

    Do you have the first version or the improved later version?

    The first one was sharp and harsh. Their second one is MUCH nicer!
    Very easy to drop the slide.

    I still tend to ride the slide stop with my thumb though, and the PG version appears as though it may be better due to the slimmer profile and higher position in relation to the slide. It is longer (rearward) too.

    I'm looking at getting the XD 45 in the 4 inch model with the thumb safety. My question is will the ESS from XD guys work on this without modification to the gun? Has anyone done had any luck with this? Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE: i ended up getting the pistol gear. wow i love it. slide release is much easier. its up and out of the way of my thumbs so no more unintentional slide release.

    Looks good, but won't fix the issue for guys who thumb the slide up unintentionally. The Pistol Gear unit does...

    I don't know, never heard of unitentionally hitting slide release with the thumb. That's on the user, maybe more weapon familiarization would help with unintentional user error. There is no such thing of a accidental discharge where I come from, or unintentional anything. All the stuff falls in the hands of the user, guns don't shoot themselves.
