If its a .45ACP the addition of a compensator is for looks only.Where can I find one that is Stainless,effective,and cheap
I bought it for a joke I played on JD back during the 460 build. I stuck it on my XSE and posted it up here; Post #3You know, if someone like Canebrake is so willing to give up his compensator so fast, there must be more to the story......
You don't want to fire that in the dark unless you close your eyesYou could have it ported. Mag-na-port offers autoport for $145
SS215, that's why 99% of people put a comp on a 45. to make it look cool or tactical. i went through that phase many years ago. all the wasted money spent on firearms to make them look cool or tactical would have bought me alot of firearms!Compensator for a 1911...why? Recoil on a steel frame 1911 is NOT worthy of a compensator. Sounds like a waste of cash to me. Is it to make it tacti-cool?
oh they do work, even on a 1911 in 45. thing is most people are just not able to realize the subtle difference in recoil. a competition shooter who shoots more in a day than most people do in a year would be able to tell that difference. it would mean the difference in losing a match or winning for him. everyone else not so much.Yeah I mean I get it, and like you said Axxe some people will go through many phases as a gun collector/enthusiast. I went through my tact-cool phase. Nothing wrong with taking a bone stock firearm and adding goodies (within reason) but this one just doesnt make sense to me because its strictly cosmetic. I would go on a limb and say you would notice less than 5% improvement on accuracy or performance. Now, ported barrel/slide is different....
Me personally, I now only make purchases & trades towards quality firearms or REALLY good deals that are hard to pass up....and dont waste my cash on cosmetic gadgets anymore. I roll that money into ammo, or my family
