I have seen some Glocks with a compensator on the end of the barrel. Also some S&W revolvers with compensators also. My question is this.....what are compensators? What are they doing on the end of the barrel?

Comps are for when a ported barrel doesn't get you enough attention.

Both of my performance center revolvers have compensators on them and they look cool, are horrible to clean if you shoot lead, and do very little for recoil unless you're shooting max loads. I wouldn't spend money to add compensators to a gun of mine.

Most compensators that actually do anything are found in competition guns where folks are pushing small rounds extremely fast to achieve Major Power Factor. The compensator helps with controlling the recoil of the race guns.
