You will not be able to tell a difference firing a comped gun vs uncomped with no ear pro, your hearing gets rung out instantly with both so it won't matter at all. I tried it and found no difference at all

Comps are literally cheating my .45 compact with 230g +P HSTs doing 950-70 out of my exact gun have less left recoil and WAY less muzzle deflection than 185g going 990 out of a full-size Ed brown wearing a light a optics (20oz heavier gun). It also has less deflection than a Glock 19 shooting 124 HST, if I opt for normal loadings it's FASTER than my full-size all steel 9mm 1911 in all drills, with my usual it's about a tie except for first shot speed and the FAST drill. Once you try a gun with a comp you will not go back, be warned a comped Glock only has about 12% reduction vs the obscene reduction seen in 1911s, CZs, and SIGs

Thank you for your sharing your experience and knowledge.

I've never fired a comped gun....just ported hunting weapons.

A comped commander would fit just fine in holsters made for 5", I suppose.

I'd looked into the WC .460 Rowland but never really gave the matter much thought for my carry cartridges.

Sounds like it would be a welcome enhancement. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://forums.1911forum.com/images/smilies/rock.gif[/IMG]
.460 is badass, I have a 5 inch colt in .460 and with 185 at like 1600 or some stupid number like that (1000ish lb/ft) it actually doesn't lift as much as an uncomped .45 but the rearward force is higher.
