    Only been out with my 1095 once and put a couple mags through it (love this thing, btw), but I'm already trying to trick it out. There isn't a ton of recoil, but I expect there's more than a 9mm, and I'd love to put a muzzle brake on to reduce it even further. Plus it looks cool.

    My question is, there aren't a ton of 10mm-specific muzzle devices out there; so would a .578x28 threaded brake for another caliber (like .40 S&W or .45 ACP) work? And if so, would it work as intended?

    Would love to shop a wider selection, rather than shopping exclusively for 10mm brakes.

    You do realize that .40 S&W and the 10mm are both .400" projectiles...yes? So it would stand to reason that the brakes are the same...

    It would, wouldn't it? But if there's one thing I've learned it's how much I have yet to learn, so I don't like to take anything for granted. Thanks for the info!

    Also the brake I have on my 4095 is basically all for show anyways. There's no noticeable difference with or without it, but it looks cool...

    Sounds like the math on the price/cool ratio works out, and any marginal performance enhancements would merely be a bonus. Looks like I'll be broadening the search to include .40 brakes. Could probably go even larger bore, but there should be something worthwhile at the right diameter.

    They use bigger cans (suppressor/silencer, w/e) to fair effect, so yes, the 45 will "work" but like Big Bro said, there's no noticeable effect on a 4095. Now that newer guy with the nicely tricked out 1095 has a 10mm "linear compensator" and something like that might actually do some recoil mitigation for you. Looks WAY COOL as well!

    Can't remember his name...

    Theoretically there could be a difference between a 40 and a 10mm comp, if the gas volumes needed to be adjusted, but I doubt anyone has it that close to perfect that they offer 2 sizes for 40 and 10mm. Any good 40 cal product will work, if the threads are correct.

    Thanks for the insights. A linear compensator, eh? Google says that might actually be pretty useful, and I wonder if it wouldn't be as obnoxiously loud for those around the shooter as a regular comp, since the noise goes out front.

    I'll see if I can't find that guy's post.

    Adjusting gas volume? I've seen them with omnidirectional ports to adjust for differences in equipment, shooter stature and shooting style, but I don't think I've seen one for plain old volume.

    Don't cornfuse the guy. Lol

    You thinking this guy, Born Too Late? Looks like the KAW Valley XL linear comp.

    When I typed in 10mm brakes, KAW Valley popped up at Wing Tactical. Of course the threading you want is out of stock.

    Looks like the XL variety is in stock. Seems to be basically the same comp only longer. I think I like that look better actually.

    EDIT: Ordered the XL slim comp - looking forward to trying it out. Not sure if it'll make any difference in muzzle flip, but sound should be reduced and it'll look neat.

    This mean you could cut a little sumthing sumthing off your barrel and permanently attach this and be legal?

    Definitely. Mine's shaping up very similar - going to add a Primary Arms micro dot after I get a feel for the irons, and that same linear comp is on its way.

    Also have a couple 20 round Redball mags I'll be tweaking to work, and the Mcarbo recoil spring and guide rod shipped. Pretty simple mods, but should be functional.

    Because their site came up when I was looking for a fix for the sticky cheek pad (I've just decided to let the stickiness wear off over time) and I found their allegedly stronger and better-machined recoil spring and stainless steel guide rod to replace the plastic one that's included. Their marketing and reviews convinced me it'd be a relatively low cost way to improve the gun's longevity, reliability, and already pretty low recoil. Not a fan of plastic parts in general (polymer frames being a necessary exception).

    I had a plastic recoil guide rod for the 2000-ish rounds I’ve shot through my JHP and it looked a little mushroomed.
    Now mind you I bought mine used so who knows how many rounds it’s had.
    Had some $ left on an eBay gift card so bought the steel one.
    Still haven’t shot it yet.
    @moona11 told me it’s designed to be a wear item and therefore it’s plastic.
