It's not even a question that if you can maintain better control of your weapon, you can be a better shot. The main enemy of weapon control is muzzle rise. Therefore, a compensator has a rightful place on any gun larger than a .22 cal. However, as the calibers grow and the barrels shrink, muzzle flash comes into play as well. Enter the flash hider, commonly found on most all tactical weapons. Next Level Armament brings the two worlds together with their AR9 compensator.

Make It Hot If Your Not

If you're a backyard can popper, the comp you choose doesn't really matter. If you're running an AR9 type pistol or SBR, you fall into the area of a more serious shooter. When you step up your game and improve your weapons, every part of your set-up needs comes into play. Leading this choice from the front is the Next Level Armament Heretic 9mm compensator. You might still plink the occasional can, but you know you will turn up the heat. Enjoying less muzzle rise and flash, why would you not want that.

Fire With Attitude

The unique design of the Next Level Armament Heretic 9mm compensator immediately catches your eye. Large, open lateral ports coupled with the smaller round ports on its 45-degree surfaces combine to do the deed. The streamlined, angular crown of this AR9 compensator doesn't foul the clean lines of your baby. Sure it looks great, but it's made to perform. This comps solid stainless steel body with a Quench Polish Quench finish means durability, corrosion resistance, and easy cleaning. You go ahead and be a Heretic, do not conform and take the range in style.
