I want to change out the light hollow factory guide rod with a solid stainless steel guide rod. What manufacturer makes the best. Do the XDM 4.25 and 5.25 take the same guide rod.

Yep, I have a Don's in my XDM45 4.5", and a pistolgear stainless in my XDM40 5.25". Don's is really nice, and has a beautiful polished finish. The Pistolgear is Cerakote black, and is the same weight as the Don's.

If you want a shiny polished guide rod, go with Don's. If you want a black one, go with Pistolgear. Both are the same weight, by a gram or two.
