    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 :)

    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.
