When I spoke with the lady at Clark Custom (mostly about their guide rod assembly) she told me that the comp is not "user" removeable, being torqued on the the barrel. A gunsmith, like them, is a different story. I wish I could remember her name as she has a video of her shooting the 460. Renee rings a bell.

I should have added that my inquest about their screw-in guide rod is that I wanted to use a different style assembly, something like a Menck, or Sprinco; which is where she brought up the comp not being something that can be removed by a back yard mechanic to disassemble the gun. Yeah, she did say anyone with a cresent wrench can force it off, but their torque specs are their own design, and removing it changes the gripping ability of the threads to return to original specs - something that will void any liability of theirs if your comp goes downrange (or all over the place) with one of your rounds. If I was running a nitrofuel dragster, I would not have Jiffy Lube change my oil.

well i dont think it would catostrophic fail. but it would definately loosen itself as you shot it due to the rotational forces of the gases hitting the compnsator.

i was mainly curious as to how it was attached not that its going to affect my decision. mainly jus idle curiosity. i always try to get as good an understanding of my firearms as possible so i can tell when something is about to go terribly wrong and prevent it.

Folks it's a well engineered kit and does exactly what it's designed to do - give you .44 Magnum ballistics from a 5" 1911. Due to the spring weight (24# for carbon steel), it's a tad of a challenge to assemble and the steps vary from regular 1911 assembly - but it's not difficult to put in or take out.

NO CHANGES are made to your base gun so switching back & forth is a simple matter and I've done so a couple of times. Shooting one is really amazing as the compensator is so effective it feels like shooting a standard 1911 with self-defense ammo. It's actually a little disappointing to shoot as you feel it should kick like a .44 Magnum but it doesn't...

main point of curiosity on my part is i intend to put it on my springfield 1911A-1 and would like to parkerize the compensator to match the gun.

It amazes me (as an engineer) why people buying an engineered assembly, the CCG 460 Rowland kit in this case, think they can make it better than what the original design/develop/test engineers have done?

+ 1 Dave and why did you divulge us 460 owners' secret that the gun shoots like a standard 5" Government on a +P diet!
