Replace the breakage prone, plastic factory striker guide with a stainless steel striker guide for the Springfield XDs pistols (first generation, not MOD2), part number 27 on the Springfield diagram. This striker guide will never crack or fracture causing your pistol to be unreliable with misfires or have light strikes.
Aluminum is nearly as bad as plastic in that it galls and gouges when a screwdriver or other tool is used disassembling the slide.
The finely finished surface of the Stainless Steel Striker Guide helps smooth your XDs trigger and provides for consistent trigger feel compared to the plastic, factory striker guide.
Our striker guide is precision machined from 303 stainless steel and only takes minutes to install. Plastic breaks and cracks while aluminum galls and gouges when a screwdriver or other tool is used disassembling the slide. Stainless is as hard or harder than a screwdriver. This is the last striker guide you will ever need for your Springfield XDs pistol.
