1911 compensator

Recommended Posts

Had had an interesting and challenging project on the go last week, a mate who shoots  IPSC in Open Division had me build him a pistol in 9mm a few years ago, now he's decided that the comp I made was too small and decided I had nothing better to do than machine up a 3 port comp to replace the original 2 port one I made when I originally built the gun for him. f**k I love mates like this.

Original gun I built for him on an STI 2011 frame and slide with a perfectly adequate 2 port comp..

Machining up a new comp from scratch out of some 316 Stainless bar...finished it today, told him he'll have to like it or lump it cause I aint building another one, getting the radius’s right to match the slide has caused me quite a few new grey hairs😖

Nice work , I think the third cut out for the Comp is more for adding weight then to compensate & that weight will help more then the Gas redirection & I think he knew that .👍

^^^  I knew he'd show up, and publicly flaunt his massive jealousy of such magnificent machining artwork...   :thumbup::laffs:

Jealousy is a bit much, envious would be more like it....

I figured it would take you a minute to find that.  I had no doubt that you would, though...   :banana:

That right there is the problem Kiwi, you're dealing with an Open class shooter. NOTHING is perfectly adequate for those guys! Perfectly adequate for most of us is severely lacking for one of THOSE guys!:laffs:

Great machinework BTW!:thumbup:
