    I recently received my 995TS Compensator and took my carbine out to the range. I fired 50 rounds and noticed about half-way through that there was a significant change. It suddenly got louder and seemed to buck just slightly. I went through another box of 50 and experienced no further changes. When I started to clean-up and leave the range I noticed a couple of feet in front of me on the ground the compensator had come off the carbine at some point. I assume that was the change I experienced in the first 50 rounds. I believed that I had securely tightened the compensator onto the carbine. Any suggestions? I am thinking about adding locktight sealant to secure it.

    More fun when you actually see it fly downrange.

    Blue Loctite or clear nail polish.

    Louder? Its not a silencer. Its just an ugly, heavy hunk of zamak hanging off the barrel, it doesnt muffle sound.


    Blue loc-tite as stated.

    Does one really need a comp on a 9mm rifle? My 4595 came with one but I'll probably take it off..

    But if you want to keep it on the gun blue locktite

    The difference would be barely noticeable at all.
    On such a low recoil gun there is no "significant change" to be felt.
