Strike Industries is at it again with their new G4 Slidecomp Glock compensator that requires nothing other than you owning a 9mm Gen 4 gun. That’s right, no threaded barrel, no expensive porting, just a stock Gen 4 Glock in 9mm. So why is this exciting? Well, if you haven’t shot a comped gun, there isn’t much that is quite like it in terms of getting the gun back on target quickly.
Before we go any further, THIS WILL NOT FIT A GEN 3 GLOCK.
If you are a gamer or just like dumping rounds onto a target as fast as humanly possible but don’t have a need or want for a threaded barrel the G4 is just about the only option I am aware of. It seems like the comp attached to the slide by a plug that is inserted through the nose of the slide and retains the comp with some dimples and set screws. Since the comp attaches to the slide Strike reports that you can use it to cock the gun by driving it into a hard surface (in a safe direction of course.) I am a bit puzzled by the use of a Gen 3 recoil spring assembly, I assume that is to make room for the plug. Package includes:
– 1x G4 SlideComp
– 4x M5 Installation set screw (side)
– 2x M4 installation set screw (bottom)
– 1x 2mm Allen wrench
– 1x Glock gen 3 guide rod and spring
– Eliminates the need for threaded barrels
– Blended, no snag profile
– Precision CNC machined
– No permanent modification of weapon required
– Compatible with fourth generation G17, G19, G22, G23, G31, G32
– Compatible with open-bottomed holsters
Pre-orders are open now, no word on the ship date on their page. With an MSRP of $79.95 the G4 Slidecomp is a touch cheaper than other comps on the market and not needing a new barrel makes it even cheaper. Learn more about it on the Stike Industries website.
