AR,
If you fire your 23C from the 'rock and lock' position be aware even safety glass will not protect your eyes. I had the 22C as a duty gun in AK and the gases from the left port actually dislodged my glasses.
I read of one report where debris for the port injured a shooters eye. This is not a good CQB weapon for this reason.

I don't tend to shoot handguns while the muzzle is tickling my nose hairs. But thanks for the heads up.

Yesterday I scored a 19C Barrel on eBay. Now looking for a 32C barrel.
