    Hi,

    After reading from this forum, i'm now confused if the guide rod assembly of XDM 9mm 3.8" compact is replaceable?? I'm planning to get a solid guide rod (tungsten or stainless) and a lesser weight (tension) spring, but if you noticed, the spring on the rod seem to be 2pcs. TIA..

    I own an XDM 3.8 45acp and they do not make a replacement guide rod other than the factory one. Not yet that I am aware of.

    I don't think anyone makes one. I just replace them with factory every 15,000-20,000 rounds weather they need it or not :)

    There is only one. The one that came with the gun, or one just like it, for now.

    Why couldn't you take one from a 4.5 and cut it down from the outside to make it fit the 3.8 since it would be a solid guide rod, and use a cut down 4.5 recoil spring. Only thing I see you might have to do is mill the side where you cut it to get the contour and shape back?just my thoughts on it don't actually have a 3.8 guide rod to look at.

    It's a totally different setup. Captive spring/rod. It won't work. There's really no reason for it as the factory setup works great.

    Change recoil springs, added weight for muzzle flip. At least that's why I would like one. But looking to buy the 5.25" version to cure this issue lol.

    Greetings all (1st post)! I sold a Glock 19 to buy my XDM45 a little brother (XDM9, 3.8 version) and can't help but wonder how close this guide rod assembly is to one of Glock's? I'm not one to advocate using anything other than parts that fit and operate perfectly, but I believe there are heavier replacements for the Glock line (at least up to Gen3). Anyone?
