Strike Industries Gen3 Glock Comp

Following the success of their G4 Comp, Strike Industries is working on a comp for Gen3 Glocks. They posted this video of their prototype on their instagram account.

Strike Industries Gen3 Slide Comp First Prototype! 🤤 #gen3 #glock #glocknews #glockfeed #strikeindustries

It looks a little different from the G4 Comp. The G4 comp is rather slim. It is the same width as the slide and frame of the Glock.

Now take a look at the G3 Comp, it has extra material that enshroud the front of the dust cover and the bottom corner of the slide. I am not sure why that is necessary but we shall see when more information come out about this new comp. I am concerned if the G3 Comp will interfere with rail mounted accessories like weapon lights.

    I’d be surprised if they designed the thing without weapon lights in mind. But it’s a good thing that pistol bayonets aren’t logical, because this would interfere with that.

    Already have the g4 and it definitely works well. Would love to know if this is compatible with the polymer80 lowers. Who am I kidding, I’m getting one. Strike and W.A.R are the only guys I know of making California compliant comps that can still be removed to clean or strip. (We can’t have comps on threaded barrels unless they are pinned…)

      SI seems to be doing brisk business precisely because they don’t ignore the CA market, and yet they make a lot of decent products at prices which are reasonable for the quality. I’ve been a fan for a while, now, and I don’t even live in CA.

      • ClintTorres

        Totally, I like to buy quality but I’m not investing huge sums for what are, ultimately, range toys.

        SI hits the price/performance/quality/innovation sweet spot for me.

        On the .223 Timbs barrel, I’m really interested to see the feasibility of such concept of lightweight/fast and heavy/subsonic projectile stabilized with the same barrel twist. Some people like Tassiebush and ostiariusalpha seem to also be interested in this, we should create a working group on this subject.

      At SHOT, BattleComp had mentioned they were working on a CA compliant Comp. Not sure if it is still in development or not.

      • Majorsten

        Good to know. Thanks

    I don’t get it, we aren’t running 500 s&w in glock now are we? My 9mm barely has more recoil than my s&w 422 with a can on it. Someone please explain the advantage to a longer pistol without a longer barrel . At least if it were a longer barrel you could push rounds a few yards further down range, is it for shooting at night? Is it just to look cool and different? Same with pistols ported from factory if you get a ported gun with a 4″ barrel the port takes up the last inch and your left essentially with a 3″ barrel and have lost that extra distance you could be shooting at

      It depends on how fast you can shoot double tap? Do you do IPDA, IPSC or 3 gun?

      In a match where seconds counts, even a recoil of 9mm can delay your follow shot aiming time.

      Most people who think 9mm compensator is unnecessary never try to shoot a 15 meters far A4 target with double tap under stress.

      • Will

        These 9mm mini comps aren’t competition things. Every major rule-set segregates equipment by divisions. These things aren’t going to be competing against a Glock 19 without a comp, they’ll be shooting against proper open guns.

        No, as this post shows, the purpose of 9mm mini comps is posting on Instagram.

        • Friend of Tibet

          I have seen many 9mm with comps on IPSC matchs. And what rule says 9mm with comp is not a proper open gun? Sounds more like your personal preference.

    • Edeco

      I’m a long-barrel fan myself, of all firearms I have the most rounds through a G34 and own no comps. But there is muzzle flip.

      It’s hard to make an apples-to-apples comparisson. Someone can say they can make holes faster or apply foot-lbs faster at 15 yards with a Ronald Special or a G34. It could be tested but end of the day I doubt many people would make a purchase decision based on that.

    • Majorsten

      Is the extra distance that important if engagements are generally around 0-25yrds? If you’re hunting with pistols then that’s different. But even then, if you goto something like a 460 Rowland a comp is a must.

      Personally, I like the ability to put a full mag rapidly on target with less spread. If a comp/porting allows me to do that then I’m in.

    So tier. Much operator.

    California Roland Special…Here I come!

  • DropGun25

    Please pardon my ignorance, but why is a pistol comp necessary?

    • AD

      I think for most people it isn’t NECESSARY, but it can be beneficial depending on the intended use of the pistol.

  • Mystick

    You mean it won’t fit on my 1911? Meh.
