    Linear compensator

    Posted by Roy Baumgart on Mar 14th 2021

    Running it on a pistol build with a short 7” barrel. This is the perfect fix for looks and function. Looks perfect. Fits right in on the barrel and tucks in tight under the hand rail. The short barrel caused expenditures are forced completely down range out of the way of my fellow shooters. To me (not having a decibel meter) seems to be lowering the incredible loud blast. Even an ever so small amount helps on something like this. Price point is right on for multiple purchase. Even for COVID-19 affected incomes.

    Carbon steel linear comp

    Posted by Billy on Mar 13th 2021

    Product looked nice, and functions well. I marred the shit out of the comp with a cheap open ended wrench with ease which was very surprising. Carbon steel is not supposed to be soft in comparison to Chinese cold rolled steel? So that was disappointing. Overall for the price I would buy this again.

    From Venom Defense:
    Improper use and/or installation without protection will cause problems for any product including this one.

    Excellent Value!

    Fit and finish is flawless. Micro Brake alone works great and the linear compensator housing does a great job of redirecting the concussion. Does create more flash in an AR pistol but is very slightly quieter than a standard A2 and recoil control is very manageable.

    The quality and development put into this product is absolutely second to none. Wish I had the funds to equip all my rifles with one of these linear's!
