Why the Glock 17 Compensator is Trusted By Law Enforcement and Military Personnel

Posted by Alexander Riddle on

The Glock pistol has carved an enviable reputation for itself in the decades since it was first introduced. In fact, Gaston Glock's masterpiece has found widespread acceptance amongst LEOs, military personnel, and civilian shooters alike.

The Glock 17 pistol is a byword for unsurpassed reliability, ease of use, and durability. Add to that the fact that its low bore axis allows for very fast follow-up shots.

The surging popularity of the pistol has also led to a whole plethora of aftermarket accessories designed to complement this amazing pistol. One such product is the HC9C 3.0 Glock Micro Compensator by Herrington Arms.

Compensating the Glock 17 Pistol

A compensator mitigates the forces of felt recoil by reducing muzzle flip. As the hot gasses exit your pistol, they push up the barrel. This phenomenon is part of the operation cycle of every locked-breech mechanism-operated weapon.

A compensator reduces the recoil impulse by vetting the excess gasses downwards via vent holes present in the compensator. As your Glock 17 flips upwards after a shot, the compensator will force it down so that you will be able to align the sights to your target more quickly. This holds particularly true when compared to an uncompensated weapon.

The HC9C 3.0 Glock compensator is a great compensator that is small in size, but big on performance. It has been created for the express purpose of severely reducing recoil in your Glock pistols. It's a highly durable compensator that can handle whatever loads you shoot in your pistol. Its 6061 aluminum construction ensures ruggedness, durability, and is very lightweight. Moreover, the attractive black Cerakote finish will further enhance the natural elegance of your Glock.

The HC9C Glock 17 Compensator is fully compatible with stock Glock 17,19 and 26 variants as long as they are from Gen 2 to 5. It works perfectly well, even with stock springs, so you don’t have to mess with the internals of your personal defense weapon.
