Compensator For My 995

  1. Should I put a Compensator on my 995? Does it improve accuracy or is it strictly cosmetic?

    The factory says it's cosmetic, but on my ATI'd 995 it most definitely reduces muzzle flip and reduces noise level.
     

  3. I vote cosmetic. I didn't notice any real difference.
     
  4. I think it is mainly for looks--- I have one on mine--

    Shoots the exact same with or without-- it just looks meaner with--

    Ya know-- it is more of an EBR wih one...

    :twisted:
     
  5. Compensators are supposed to reduce muzzle climb, like on a Thompson or an AKM. I can't imagine they'd be much use on a semi-automatic carbine that only holds ten rounds. As for cosmetic reasons, sure, but yeesh, not the HP compensator.
