I've used and shot the 3.5 MOA version and it's definitely harder to pick up the dot.
    I found the learning curve to be steep also. Finally decided it just wasn't for me, personally. No telling how you'll like it. Just hold your breath and try it and hope you find it the coolest thing since sliced bread.

    Question for the masses. What has been your general experience with handgun compensators? Work? Don't work? Marginal? Great?

    Ghey. Buy a long slide, or a race gun.

    They definitely do work, at the expense of window of reliability, along with the potential to be pushed out of battery more easily when doing retention shooting, and the dangerous redirection of hot gasses when retention shooting.

    For a good two-handed grip, performance is not particularly noticeably improved, IME, though it'll allow you to put more rounds down range through the day before you feel tired. It does help a fair bit more with SHO/WHO.

    This is all assuming you're talking about carry comps, like on a Roland Special. Straight up multi-port competition comps are extremely effective.

    Comps are fun to shoot, but for practical purposes, other than a range toy, or maybe competition, I don't see them being part of my EDC. Besides, I'm confident in my abilities with a RDS equipped pistol, and 9mm doesn't need to be comped.

    Thanks for those replies. I had a case of the insomnia last night so I did an impulse buy. I bought a Griffin threaded barrel that comes with their micro carry comp at a really good deal. I didn't even know they made them to be honest until last night.

    Anyway I will drop it in and run it for a while during practice sessions to confirm full functionality over time. Curiosity got the better of me to be honest.

    Hopefully surefire will start delivering their new lights (the XSC) within the next few weeks or whatever. They are slow as hell and I am not very patient.

    Expanding a bit on my thought process for good or bad. If something is wrong or you don't agree with it please point out why (so I can learn). Nobody learns by agreeing 100% of the time.

    I agree that 9mm is not a monster that needs to be comp'ed. But what I thought about was the total system.

    A 9mm out of my 226 is easily controlled but out of a P365XL the gun is substantially smaller and lighter. Basically big heavy gun vs small light gun.

    On the videos I watched before buying it says it will reduce felt recoil/flip by around 30%. I don't know what size gun that is on though. That's pretty substantial if it turns out to be true, but I say that in the context of carrying a small gun which are inherently more snappy because of physics.

    Plus that comp is really not much bigger that a thread protector. There is very little penalty for the most part.

    Just the little comp thing is normally around $60 but I got a threaded barrel and a comp both for around $150 brand new.

    I figured why not scratch my curiosity itch and see if it works or not.

    Even if I don't carry it I possibly could shoot my 365XL suppressed from time to time. At least it would be an option.

    I bought a comp that threads onto the cam lok muzzle device and I tried it out for myself. I personally like it a lot. I can definitely see how some comps might be a pain in the ass or literally over compensate but that one... I like it. Now it's time for me to try out the little one for my carry gun. It won't get here until Friday though but if it works like the one I got a day or two ago it will be a keeper.

    After I get used to the optic on my carry gun I am now seriously considering getting my slide cut for my P226. It never ends man. It never ends.
