1911 45acp muzzle brake compensator do not work.




Was wondering if anybody tried or have the 1911 compensator sold by BCA Industries, I heard they work fine in most 1911, specially Colt, but when it come to my SA 1911-A1 (GI) it doesn't fit tight/flat to the slide, there is a very little gap in between slide and compensator?

Everything I've read on bushing comp's claim they are junk.If you want a comp get one that screws on the barrel.

A comp works by sealing the bullet in the baffles of the comp, which allows the gas to be redirected through the ports. Since the bushing comp's inside diameter is that of the barrel - ~.580" - rather than that of the bullet - ~.451" - there's no seal, and the gas is free to escape around the bullet.

id be reserved about judging product fit, this specific compensator or not, against a gun that is at the low end of the scale. No offense but the possibility that the slide is out of spec has to be seriously considered just as well as the comp being out of whack.
