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.
