    I agree it looks odd but the explanation I have read is that it's a standoff feature to keep the slide from going out of battery if pressed against something.

    Who knows but it sounds good.

    The guide rod sticking out like that had turn me off of purchasing a XD9 Service until I was able to pick one up on the cheap. It still drives me crazy so I am going to purchase the Wolff Guide Rod and Spring kit.
