The HC9XL 3.0 compensator has been designed to work well with Glock models 19, 17, and 26 as long as they are gen 4 or 5. It will fit all 1/2-28 barrels.

The 3.0 has been carefully constructed, keeping in mind end-user feedback. It was created to ensure that it's the best Glock compensator in the market, and it incorporates all the elements required by professional and recreational shooters alike. Some of its enhanced features include the following:

  • The port size is nearly twice as large as the older HC micro comp
  • However, it is small enough to ensure that your spent brass won’t be able to enter the port

Apart from the above, it boasts of the same legendary reliability as its 2.0 counterpart. I.e., it is one hundred percent reliable with OEM stock springs, and it will smoothly run 115gr, 124gr, and even 147gr +P ammo. This means that there is no need to tinker with the insides of your everyday carry weapon. Since the 3.0 is only 1/16th longer than the HC9C, you won't have any trouble carrying it everywhere. 

However, it's the way it works that allows the 3.0 to really shine. It reduces felt recoil and muzzle flip by as much as 40 percent. Moreover, its side porting cuts down the horizontal arch very effectively, which makes for a rock-steady grip.

This compensator will turn your Glock into an amazingly accurate ‘tack driver’ of a weapon. It will also make it much easier to land faster and more accurate follow-up shots.

Once mated to the Glock’s natural low bore axis, this compensator can almost completely eliminate the recoil and flinch factors. This holds particularly true for even a subcompact pistol like the Glock 26 since it is traditionally more difficult to control with full-power +P 9mm loads.

It will also help you shoot much tighter groups at longer ranges. You won't have to waste time realigning your sights after every shot since your gun won't jump around every time you squeeze the trigger.

Key Features of the HC9XL 3.0

  • Up to 40 percent vertical recoil reduction
  • Horizontal stabilization that makes it easy to shoot rapidly and accurately
  • The 3.0 compensator has easily passed the 4000-round durability test benchmark
  • It has been precision engineered from very high quality and lightweight CNC machined 6061 aluminum for extra durability
  • Its matt black type three anodized hard coat finish will enhance the rugged elegance of your Glock pistol
  • One of the most practical upgrades for your EDC weapon
  • It can be installed easily. No need to take your Glock to a gunsmith
  • Lifetime warranty. No questions asked!

If you want an extremely reliable and highly effective compensator then the HC9XL 3.0 is the right one for you. It will heighten your shooting pleasure and help you become a much better and faster shot. Most important of all, it can prove to be invaluable in a self-defense situation when you need to shoot rapidly and accurately to save your life.


Every compensator we manufacture has undergone rigorous reliability testing!

The design phase

Every product we make goes through a week long design process and multiple versions before we machine a prototype!

CNC Machining

We currently machine all of our compensators on 2 brand new Doosan DNM4500S CNC milling machines and a 2019 Tormach 1000mx CNC milling machine!


The answer is easy! All you need to do is purchase the threaded barrel that matches your slide. For example, if you have a carry length slide you need a carry length threaded barrel (4.6"). If you have an X compact slide you need a X compact threaded barrel (4.3"). This will allow you to run a longer frame and give you an integrated look.


Yes they do. We have run tens of thousand of rounds through all of our models and have had zero malfunstions. If you are having an issue with a build, it is likely the case you have installed our prodcut incoretly or your handgun needs broken in. Compensators need a smooth running system to be reliable. A new handgun has tolerances that need to be worn in before we suggest adding a compensator

-It's easy! We designed our comps to be self-timing so all you have to do is

- Remove your slide from you frame

- Remove your guide rod assembly

- Apply Loctite to barrel threads

- Thread comp onto barrel until it stops

- Back off a 1/8 turn

- Apply Loctite to set screws

- Tighten down set screws

Worth the wait

Works better then expected. Be patient it’s worth waiting for. I love comped and ported guns and this thing runs good.

Super impressive

Having never shot a compensator before, I was skeptical as I chambered a round. The first trigger pull changed my mind completely. This comp dramatically reduced muzzle flip and felt recoil to where it was comparable to shooting a low powered .380ACP. It ran 115 target rounds, 124gr HP from multiple manufacturers, 147gr target load. Zero malfunctions after 100rds of multiple brands of ammo through the pistol. Definitely a solid upgrade for under $100

Not only a super cool looking addition but turned my Shadow XR920 into the flattest shooting gun I own. Kudos!!!

Excellent gear

I bought this comp a few months back and waited till I put enough rounds through it to make an educated opinion. So far, I have put around 500 rounds of mixed range and defensive ammo. I gotta say that I'm impressed, it made me fall in love with my G45 again. Besides the obvious benefits, the fact I can track dot better is a big plus for me. Herrington, thank you for a product well made.
