Well short of overthrowing the government there's not much we can do anymore.. We could veto every company supporting MDAA and still not get anywhere. Might as well stock, lock, load, and hit the road!

I don't have to buy from them or alot of other companies that we mention on the forum. Google it, you will be astounded. I know surefire has the best system for a shotgun forearm light. But mine will stay dark before I buy from them.

If you were to add a suppressor to the end of a compensator allowing the comensator to still vent gasses, you would have little or no effect on the report. If you were to add a compensator to the end of a suppressor, you would have an expensive, tacticool device that would have no effect except to add weight to the end of the barrel.

Make a .357 recoil like a 9mm? I hope you are not referring to a .357 Magnum revolver because you cannot effectively supress most revolvers because of the gap between the cylinder and the barrel. THe notable exception would be the Russian Nagant revolver who's cylinder slides over the back of the barrel upon firing. If you hold the gun properly, there is practically no recoil anyway.

i most certainly AM referring to .357 magnums and i know for a fact that they can be equipped with stabilizers.. It's pricey and they aren't easily removed like normal but if they're hard-modded they can work. Most common knowledge example being the S&W 500 Magnum. They come equipped with a stabilizer so they don't literally break your hands and arms. Now most magnums don't come with them, i'm not arguing with that, but i've shot a .357 magnum with a built-in 1 inch compensator so they're just as real as anything else discussed in this forum. i truly appreciate the feedback though!! It's really helped school me

There are ported and or comped .357 revolvers. Trying to add a suppressor to one will be an exercise in futility. The 500 S&W will not "break your hands and arms" unless you have girlie hands and arms.

There are semi-autos chambered for .357 mag, although typically hard to find and expensive as I understand it.

That being said, to the OP, are you 100% positive your not referring to a .357 Sig? No offense intended, its just we have to make absolutely sure we are all on the same page...

Yes sir, it was a 6 shot 'medium' frame .357 revolver magnum. i want to say it was a S&W but at this point it's more of a guess than anything since it's been years ago. i'm not saying it was factory produced with the comp, i didn't bother asking, but it clear as day had one built in.

Comps do work on revolvers, suppressors do not, except in the case of a very few exceptions.

I found out recently that there was a suppressed model 29 in the works at one point. Now that would be bad @$$.

I have no clue what a stabilizer is for a gun.

As for having a suppressor and a compensator. Unless you are talking about a flash suppressor or flash hider.

A sound suppressor or a moderator or silencer as Hollywood likes to call them can be had to slip over. There are more out there than just surefire.

Yep. I had suppressors installed on my boats stabilizers. Very expensive, but it didn't seem to do a thing for the exhaust noise.
