How Compensators Work On Your Glock

Posted by Alexander Riddle on

Compensators are a type of muzzle device that helps to reduce the recoil on your Glock. By reducing muzzle flip, they're helpful when rapidly shooting at targets.

When you shoot a Glock, gasses push the bullet out the barrel (the force of which causes muzzle flip). When the bullet exits the muzzle, a compensator vents these gasses up. The equal and opposite response pushes your muzzle down. The more ports, and also the larger the ports, the harder the gas pushes up, and pushes the pistol's muzzle down. Ports can also be added to the side to help mitigate against the horizontal recoil arc.

Compensators are useful when quickly firing, as you don't need nearly as much wait for the muzzle to "settle". Compensators are also good because aftermarket ones can't void Glock's warranty like other modifications can.

Why You Need a Compensator for Your Glock

Posted by Alexander Riddle on

If you own a Glock, then you know that one of the most popular modifications for them is to add a compensator. A compensator attaches to the end of your barrel and directs some of the gas from each shot down into the ground, reducing felt recoil. It also helps control muzzle rise when shooting. In this article we will explore why adding a compensator to your gun may be beneficial for both competition shooters and everyday carriers!

  • Compensators are not only for competition shooters. They also reduce muzzle rise and felt recoil, which is good for everyday carriers too!
  • They help to control the upward movement of your gun while shooting. This reduces any perceived "jump" when transitioning from target to target or from one type of shot (full-auto) to another (single shots).
  • Compensators are relatively easy to install on Glock models 17/19/22/23; they require no modifications or change in function.
  • Compensators are also very affordable, typically costing $100 or less. A lot of shooters find that these benefits more than make up for the cost!

It's no wonder that Glock compensators are one of the most popular attachments. Just remember, you may need to replace your holster after purchasing one. Not all stock holsters will properly fit after.

Building a custom Sig P320

Posted by Cory Herrington on

So we have all seen pictures floating around the internet of these 320's with integrated compensators. It looks badass and is a no Brainer for competition or edc! The question we keep getting is what do we need to build one!? Well the answer is simple, for the build pictured in this Blog post you must have a compact slide, a 4.6" 1/2-28 compact threaded barrel, a full size/ x5 legion frame, a Sig FCU, and our 320 comp! You can still have a sub compact or "X compact" setup like this however you need a sub compact slide/barrel and a compact frame! You won't get a fully integrated look because it only covers half the compensator but it still looks amazing! DO NOT PUT A X COMPACT SLIDE WITH A FULL SIZE FRAME! If you do, you will have the comp fall short of the frame and it will look incorrect.
