Our compensator muzzle brake for your 1911 pistol is perfect if you’re looking to spruce up the look of your 1911 pistol and also gain from some recoil reduction. Precision machined from T6 6061 aircraft aluminum and finished off in a type II hardcoat anodized finish for a sleek look, this compensator muzzle brake for your 1911 will look great and allow you to follow up shots and stay on target easier. Your barrel does not need to be threaded for this 1911 compensator. Installs easily by depressing the 1911 spring cap, removing the 1911 bushing, and replacing it with your 1911 compensator. If you feel your compensator is a tight fit, you can give it a little tap with a rubber mallet to position it into place and lock into position. Due to the tight tolerances in machining, depending on the type of 1911 you have, a little tap from a rubber mallet may or may not be required.
