Glocks are some of the most popular pistols and are used by militaries, law enforcement, and civilians worldwide. If you are looking for a small concealed carry Glock, the Glock 43 is one of the best options. However, with its small grip and smaller barrel, it isn't easy to control compared to a full-sized Glock. This is a common theme with any concealed carry pistol.

However, for the Glock 43, it is really easy to solve. Most Glocks generally have reasonable recoil control, but by installing a compensator, like the Faxon EXOS-523 Pistol Compensator, the recoil impulse and muzzle rise can be reduced significantly. This results in a more capable firearm that is easier to shoot and more effective. So, if you are looking for a Glock 43 compensator, you should check out the Faxon EXOS-523 Pistol Compensator.

Effective Port Design

The Faxon EXOS-523 Pistol Compensator is designed to handle both recoil and muzzle rise. It has two angle ports on the side, which vent gasses opposite to the recoil and decrease its effect. Moreover, the larger port on the top vents gasses upwards and pushes the muzzle down with every shot, reducing muzzle rise.

This allows you to stay on target and easily get your sight picture after every shot. It can help you become a faster and significantly more accurate shooter, even with the very small frame of the Glock 43.

Lightweight Aluminum Design

Faxon EXOS-523 Pistol Compensator is specifically designed for the Glock 43 and is made from lightweight 6061 aluminum. It weighs only 0.88 ounces and will affect the carry weight of your pistol or make it front heavy. It provides an excellent balance of weight at the front of the pistol, which helps with recoil control.

The aluminum used to make the Faxon EXOS-523 Pistol Compensator is also super durable, and with the Anodized finish, you can rest assured that it will last you a very long time.

Convenient Installation

Faxon EXOS-523 Pistol Compensator is also super easy to install on your pistol. It can be threaded onto any 1/2-28 thread pitch barrel and does not require any spacers or o-rings for timing. The compensator comes with thread lock glue, and it has two set screws in the bottom, which allow it to lock onto your muzzle very securely. So, you simply have to apply the thread lock on the muzzle threads, screw the compensator on, and tighten the screws when you have it in the right orientation.
