Here is what I am talking about.
Its compensated, ie, holes in the top of the barrel and slide;
Reduces felt recoil, but creates a large flash in your face and is far louder to the shooter
Anyone willing to let me light a cigarette with one of these???
Thank's, I did not see those hole's on the top and honestly I dont think the G23 needs a compensator.
In the 23 you definitely feel a difference, especially after a few hundred rounds. They are louder, and flash is relative to ammo. Some ammo at night is bright, but I really have not noticed it, usually because at night I am also using a rather bright light in my support hand that minimizes the effect (also minimizes nite sight usefulness).
One thing that I strongly dislike about them is being in the PNW we're always getting wet or have high humidity. Porting lets water/contaminants into the barrel as well as the slide. My roomy's ported Glock was rusting just from her carrying it. All the rust resided around the ports.
Not if she -
a. Keeps it down the front of her pants and
b. Shoots it sideways like the 'professionals in the movies do!
I have shot many thousand rounds thru a Glock 22C. Having flames shoot out the top of my gun seemed important to me when I was younger. But having had the experience, I think the negatives out way the positives on the C models. Mine was very dirty. It looked like the inside of a well used Weber grill after about 200 rounds. It still kicks. Muzzle flip is reduced some, but not drastically. Not worth the extra crud cleanup for me. I don't think comp belongs on a defensive pistol. You could be injured and blinded by the port blast in CQC.
Well you could be injured by just shooting it. It is a glock after all! :laugh:
after seeing that i will be avoiding the glock hahaha
That's not what I would call reduced felt recoil.
It was merely a joke... my glock hasn't blown up............................... :thumbup:
LMAO.....sweet job Trail..that was great.
