    Default Who runs comp's on their pistols? Noticeable difference?

    Who runs comps on their HK's, I know there are tacticals with threaded barrels for suppressors but does a comp really make a difference on a pistol? I don't have any tacticals but want a P30L and maybe a barrel swap......

    For me there is. It definitely shoots flatter.

    Legit comps work...and can provide significant benefit. Comp design and geometry matters; as does ammo selection and power.

    It's a give-and-take that requires some thought.

    Most would just be better off shooting lighter loads on the flat range than mucking with comps

    The problem with comps on an HK pistol is they tend to be over sprung. The pistols dip really badly returning to battery. Unfortunately, information and parts to tune HKs arenít as common as are other brands.

    As said above, itís often easier to tune ammo to the gun if you donít know what youíre doing and canít devote time. The advent of high-speed video functions on phones has made this much easier, but you still have to put in the time.

    Then there is the problem of defensive ammo and practice ammo. They will time differently; reps in practice may net you a different feel than defensive or duty ammo. My Roland Special, I had to sacrifice spring rates to make the gun reliable with both defensive and training ammo. Ultimately, to get the advantages of the comp, I had to load practice ammo to a similar pressure and velocity to carry ammo. The rabbit hole is deep and the treasures minor.

    IMHO, HK firearms were never intended to be used with compensators and match weights. HKs are well designed and balanced as is from the factory. Why mess with that? Spend time and resources learning how to shoot your HK instead without them.

    Comps are tons of fun if you have the time and like to tinker. (And yes they do work).

    I haven't run a compensator on an HK, but did a fun experiment on a Colt and it worked wonders.

    I would never put one on a carry gun though. As mentioned previously, it won't function the same between range and carry ammo. You're redirecting the muzzle blast, so shooting from retention will suck. Also, cleaning it thoroughly becomes a chore.

    Of course there are differences.

    This is the only one I use a comp on. Compared to the fs usp 45t I usually plink with, its more accurate than me, and much more fun.
