The world of muzzle devices has been overwhelmed with hybrids that try to be everything to everyone. The short answer is that they cannot. Fortunately, Kaw Valley Precision designed a simple, linear compensator that is pure, clean and brings a lot to the table in one neat, affordable and easy to install package.

You Want To Make The Shot, You Shouldn't Have To Take One

Shooting is supposed to be fun, and nothing spoils your fun like putting up with aggravation. Unlike standard compensators, the KVP.45 ACP Linear Comp has a solid outer housing. On the surface, this seems like a small point, however, it is a critical design feature of this muzzle device. The internal expansion chamber directs the shots gasses and blast forward instead of laterally. This means less trauma on those around you from side ports. There are no ports underneath to envelop your firing position in a dust cloud. Additionally, no ports on top sending muzzle flash upward to hamper your vision when shooting in low-light. Taken individually, these hindrances are minimal, however, they do add up to lost pleasure. You should raise your pleasure, lower your stress and add a KVP .45 ACP Linear Comp to your bag of tricks.

The Aftermath

The KVP .45 ACP Linear Comp is crafted from steel and wears a Melonite QPQ coat, another not so small point. Eventually, you will want to take off your compensator and clean it. Now if it's some inferior piece that might be a problem. You're going to find this KVP comp is tough enough to take it and easy to clean thanks to its superior finish.

  • XL comp

    This is one of several I use on my builds. Specifically just finished a .45 cal build. The purpose is to move the blast forward just enough. First time purchasing from WT and must say the shipping was immediate. Ordered Friday got it Monday before noon. I'll be ordering from WT in the future.

    I have not fired it yet. The construction seems adequate, but the materials used may not have the required density to control the recoil. I expect for the comp. not to survive its first day on the range. The length is adequate and will not interfere with the use of the pistol on which the comp. will be installed.

    This will extend the barrel so that carbon deposits don't get on your flashlight. You can also move your support hand forward and get a better grip without almost shooting your fingers off. Also I think it is slightly quieter. Does not make any noticeable difference in muzzle rise or recoil.
