    I use a comp on my VP9 but it was made by Nameless Arms. I really enjoy shooting with the comp.

    When a gun is fired, a comp or a compensator re-directs the muzzle flash of the gun to an upward direction, pushing the muzzle down. It counters the natural upward muzzle flip of the gun and helps re-acquire the target on your sights much quicker.

    This is different than a match weight, which is a weight (steel or aluminum) you attach to the front of your gun. The added weight mitigates the upward muzzle flip of the gun when it's fired. There is no re-direction of the muzzle flash at all with a match weight.

    You'll see some folks mix-up the terms. They'll call it a "match weight compensator" which is inaccurate.

    Do these devices work?. Some say yes, most say no. Personally, other than giving my gun a John Wick look, they don't work for me.

    Here's a match I shot withe HKparts "match weight". I don't know if it is really a comp or not. It's fun to shoot but I can't say it makes that much of a difference. Looks cool, but I believe it's illegal for me in competition so I don't use it.

    Yep met one of those boners the other day:

    HKParts is circling the drain and the number of complaints regarding their VP9 add ons lately wouldn't make me confident. After watching scores of guys bellyache over their new VP9s not cycling 115gr Win white box, I can not wait to see guys run screaming to the boards when their render their VP9's useless with their crap under-powered ammo. This is of course assuming the comps work...which I am skeptical.

    Comps work great if you know what you're doing. This latest craze of junk aftermarket comps has been entertaining to witness.

    How is holster compatibility with that comp? Usually if it isn't made for the vp9 it wont fit in a holster

    If comps were really that good, it'd mean that shooter's have difficulty managing recoil or guns were so badly designed that comps are necessary to manage recoil. I don't see those two outcomes at all with HKs. Besides, I don't see competitive shooters (guys who really know what they're doing) using comps (or match weights for that matter), so that tells you these devices don't really help much.
