Pistol Compensators

I could have swore we already had a thread on this but could not find it.

What's the current thoughts on the comps out there now for Duty/Carry use?
I've looked at the various models from KKM,  TBRCi, Agency, KE Arms.
What's everyone using, on what guns and what kind of performance are you getting?

TBRC on a SilencerCo barrel. I went with this barrel because a year ago when I bought, I remember reading ( don’t recall if it was on the TBRC website or somewhere else) that the TBRC comp was designed around this particular barrel.  I have had no complaints with this set up on a Gen  3 G19.  I have seen a pretty extensive overview on P & S of the KKM TBRC Agency 417. And the KKM had the greatest amount of muzzle rise reduction the TBRC reduced muzzle rise by between 25 and 30% and at a pretty substantial savings over the KKM. 

I haven’t done any real specific or serious  accuracy testing but I readily do full 23 round mag dumps on a 1/3 scale steel silhouette in roughly 10 to 12 seconds at 15 to 18 yards pretty much all center mass. I’m pretty confident the accuracy is there. 

Finding the right training and carry ammo that reliably cycles is a process which had me settled on Winchester NATO Spec 124 gr. FMJ for a training round. 124+P HST , 147 gr. Standard pressure HST and 147 gr +P HST all function reliably as carry rounds. I prefer heavy for caliber loads and the 147 +P HST in my hands feels substantially similar to the NATO spec so that is what my current carry load is. It is difficult to find  in quantity so I may change over to the 124 +P load ultimately.

I've got a KKM comp G19 barrel, on an "Roland Special, RMR G19."  I was skeptical, but it was a complete drop in and great performer.  Amazed at the difference in barrel rise, even with practice ammo. 

Hand braced on a bench, it will shoot ragged single hole 20 round groups at 7, 10 and 15 yards, with both practice and duty ammo.  Off hand is reliable two hand and one hand hold.  Zero malfunctions.  If I could afford another similar set up, I'd do it in a heart beat.  I've shot a stock G19 and the KKM in low, but not no light and have not seen a noticeable difference is muzzle flash, at least fro behind the gun.  I have not shot it from retention, so can't comment on affects ( need to do that)  

Only minor PITA, is cleaning it, as I blue loctited the comp on, I don't remove the barrel from the slide for routine cleaning, but it is all doable.  

YMMV

I had a TBRC comp on a SilencerCo Barrel for my M&P9.  Had.  I was getting misfires and after lots of shooting, swapping parts, swapping top ends on different frames, etc., I've determined that the only common denominator in the misfires was this barrel and comp.  Next step is to head out to the range with just the barrel and see if it has problems.  If not, try and figure out how the compensator could cause misfires.  Or the comp, barrel AND locktite.  On the M&P, there are no set screws, just locktite.
