Whats the difference between a Glock that is compensated and one that isnt?

    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???:eek:

    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.

    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.

    That's not what I would call reduced felt recoil.
