Just curious if anything is on the market.

I wonder how hard it would be for a machine shop to make something from scratch...



Edit: Check out this monster of a thing, its for an airsoft pistol :lol:

Looks wrong on the HK. The sight on the HK Match pistol is on the slide not on the weight. See top left pistol in both of my pictures.

Why are the ports on the underside of the slide/muzzle? Wouldn't that cause an increase in muzzle rise?

Not on the HK Match the barrel goes to the end of the weight and is not ported. My guess is they are to reduce the weight of the weight instead of being solid.

That just dont make good sense. If you dont like or cant handle the recoil then get a gun you can. No sense in adding extra weight to a gun and making it nose heavy and throwing off balance. If its a carry gun then you just added more weight and now it dont fit ya holster.

Not made for people who don't like or can't handle recoil, it's made to stop muzzle flip because it's a MATCH weapon made for competition. The purpose of less recoil/muzzle flip is to keep the shooter on target for multiple shots.

It adds extra weight to the front of the slide so that recoil is dampened.
Well... Yes and no.

If you are speaking of the HK talked about here... That's just a barrel weight.

But an actual compensator does more than add weight to dampen recoil. It redirects part of the muzzle blast of the weapon to assist in recoil control.

From the wiki:

Muzzle brakes and recoil compensators are devices that are fitted to the muzzle of a firearm or cannon to redirect propellant gases with the effect of countering both recoil of the gun and unwanted rising of the barrel during rapid fire. Muzzle brakes are very useful for combat and timed competition shooting, and are commonly found on rifles firing very large cartridges ... They are also commonly used on pistols for practical pistol competitions, and are usually called compensators in this context.
Just to clarify.

If you've got to have something like that, look at SJC Custom.
