    I picked up a stainless guide rod from Springer Precision. This is the first stainless rod I have used on a polymer pistol. I have used them a lot on all metal guns. It is much more noticeable on the polymer.
    I also picked up a Meprolight front tritium sight (#6 Sig) from topgunsupply and a warren tactical rear from MLE Shooting Sports. I havn't taken it out to see how I like the new sight setup. I might do that tomorrow.
    The #6 front Sig sights are a perfect match for the XD(M) front sight and are sold individually.

    What does the stainless rod guide do for you?

    The guide rod adds weight under the muzzle and helps shot recovery. I really notice it on this gun vs all metal guns.
    I love the new sight setup. I did this today at 25 yards standing with blazer 180 grain.

    I looks great and adds weight. Get Don's guide rod from pistolgear. It's pretty cheap.

    oh yeah its easy. if you can field strip a gun you can install one. Just make sure you get one that is made FOR the Xd(M). It needs to be chamfered on the back side. Springer Precision is who I bought mine from.
