A design is in the works, and a prototype has been made, for a compensator that requires no barrel modification, has a unique mounting method that requires no permanent modification to the XD, would be user removeable, work on either 4 or 5 inch models. just would like to get an indication of how popular this would be with the group, and if interested, get a concensus as to were a reasonable price could be set. it would add weight to the front of the gun, reduce muzzle flip considerably, and not interfer or permanently alter any of the guns functions. i cant post any pictures at this point, nor can i elaborate quite yet on the mounting method. but let me say....it looks very sweet on the gun, is incredibly easy to both put on and remove, and from the looks of things is incredibly efficient in reducing muzzle flip.

because if you look at most holster designs, the trigger and trigger guad have a very narrow channel on purpose to make sure nothing can engage the trigger while the pistol is inside the holster. we are trying to keep the profile of the compensator as low as possible so that there is a likely hood that it will fit in most holster designs. Really appreciate the question however, it was something we had given consideration to. if you would like, photoshop a rendition of it and we'll give it due thought if you can make it look good. FYI gentlemen, there is no limit to howmany times you may enter this contest.....however when we are selecting pictures for the winner, if we determine that one picture looks significantly similar in shape and design with similar looks to it, the picture that was posted first will get consideration for the prize and the other may not. so make sure your designs are individualistic to some extent
If you're that serious about compensation, why not just get an extended ported barrel? That sure would be easy to replace/change.
Any update on if this is being made and/or tested?
Yeah I'm curious about this too, always up for a good contest of sorts...
I like the idea, i already have it for the G19X and fits like a glove, i have XDs .45 which really can use a compensator
