The Glock 19 is one of the most popular pistols in the world. It is used as a service pistol by many military units and law enforcement agencies worldwide and is also an incredible all-around pistol for civilians. From competition shooting to home defense and concealed carry, the Glock 19 is competent in every application.
But if you’re looking for customization options, you’ll find the best Glock 19 compensators on the market in Wing Tactical’s collection.
Glock 19 Compensators: For Shooters Looking for Improved Control
Because of its immense popularity, the aftermarket support for Glock pistols (especially the Glock 19) is incredible. Various parts allow you to customize your Glock 19 to fit perfectly for different applications. One of the most popular upgrades most people make to their Glock pistols is adding a compensator.
A compensator attaches to the end of the muzzle of a rifle or pistol. It diverts combustion gases produced while firing in an upward direction to prevent muzzle movement and improve accuracy during repeat fire. If you’re using your Glock 19 for concealed carry or home defense, a compensator or other muzzle devices could prove useful in critical scenarios.
If you install an aftermarket threaded barrel on your Glock 19 and you don’t plan to use a muzzle device in all scenarios, you’ll need a thread protector to prevent damage to your barrel. Wing Tactical carries thread protectors in multiple styles and finishes from various manufacturers.
A muzzle brake is another type of muzzle device. Muzzle brakes also divert gases from the muzzle, but they divert them in a different direction than compensators do. Their primary purpose is to reduce felt recoil, but they can be used in combination with a suppressor to baffle sound.
