The Kaw Valley Precision 9mm XL Linear Compensator is the big brother of the smaller and lighter Kaw Valley Precision 9mm Compensator. So, why go bigger with more weight and size? Because taming the beast sometimes means you have to prove who the boss really is, and that’s precisely what you’ll be able to do with this 9mm linear compensator. It tips the scales at 3.16 ounces and is 4.25 inches long with a diameter of 1.4 inches, so you’ll know it’s there once you start using it. The extra length of the Kaw Valley Precision 9mm XL Linear Comp also allows for a longer handguard as long as the barrel is shorter than the handguard.


The Kaw Valley Precision 9mm XL Linear Compensator looks like it’ll be a fantastic fit on paper, but how does it work under field conditions? Well, the answer is that you won’t believe what it can do unless you’ve had a chance to try it. This compensator isn’t designed to serve as a suppressor, but its big size and the redirected muzzle blast might fool you into thinking otherwise. While this is not a suppressor, it will make it seem like your firearm is quieter as the forward-facing port redirects gas and the noise from your firearm down range and away from you.


If you’ve been searching for a compensator for a project based on a pistol round like the 9mm, the Kaw Valley Precision 9mm XL Linear Compensator might check all the right boxes. It provides the necessary muzzle management without adding too much weight to your firearm. It’s perfect for shooters looking for quality muzzle management for a carbine, PCC, or AR-pistol build.


Although the Kaw Valley Precision 9mm XL Linear Compensator might be a little heavier than you’re used to, KVP worked hard to keep its weight down. It’s made from 6061 Aluminum instead of steel like many other muzzle devices on the market today. As a result, it can only be used in pistol cartridges and isn’t suited for centerfire rifle ammunition. If you need a compensator for a centerfire rifle, you’ll have to look elsewhere. This compensator is precision machined to provide quality muzzle control for pistols while improving their appearances simultaneously.
