Faxon is a fairly popular brand when it comes to pistol accessories, and they make some excellent parts for Glocks. Glocks generally are very smooth shooting and reliable pistols. However, sometimes, concealed carry options like the Glock 43x and 48 can be relatively difficult to control because of the smaller frames.

Well, one excellent way to decrease the recoil of your concealed carry Glock and make it more comfortable to shoot is to install a compensator. The Faxon EXOS-533 Pistol Compensator is a great option if you are looking for a Glock 43X compensator.

Decreases Perceived Recoil and Muzzle Rise

The Faxon EXOS-533 Pistol Compensator is designed to decrease recoil and muzzle rise significantly. It has angled ports on both sides, and a port on top, which releases gasses against the direction of the recoil impulse and decreases muzzle rise significantly.

This compensator lets you keep your sights on target and land quicker follow-up shots more accurately. In a concealed carry pistol, the lesser recoil means more control even with the smaller frame and barrel, and if you are using it on a competition pistol, the Faxon EXOS-533 Pistol Compensator will help you shoot a lot faster and more accurately.

Lightweight and Durable

The Faxon EXOS-533 Pistol Compensator is made from lightweight 6061 aluminum, which is also super durable. It also has an anodized finish which improves longevity. In addition, this lightweight compensator weighs less than an ounce. So it won't significantly impact the gun's overall weight and won't pack your pistol front-heavy either.

Easy to Install

The Faxon EXOS-533 Pistol Compensator is very easy to install. It has two set screws in the bottom, which, combined with the thread locker that comes with the compensator, holds the compensator in place on your barrel threads. Therefore, you don't need to add any spacers or o-rings to time the compensator. Moreover, it is designed to flush it with all Faxon barrels and has a ½-28 thread pitch, which is the standard on most 9mm pistols, including the Glock 43x and Glock 48.
