Wow. I just replied, but it's not there. OK. Once again. I bought one for my XDM-45 4.5" two years ago. It's a little heavier, but I'd be lying if I said it made a noticeable difference. However, you could order that and the PRP striker retaining pins--a must-have for reliability--and at least minimize your shipping cost over ordering separately.

I use it in my XDm 9mm 5.25
I like the added weight up front. Just feels better to me.

No gunsmith needed. The guide rod is a 10 second job. The striker retaining pin takes a little longer, and you need punches--one to remove the pin and put the new one in. A starter punch is handy for installing the new pin. Of course, while the striker is out is a cleaning opportunity.
