Just cleaned one of my compensators. Took me forever to get rid of years of foul lead and copper "deposits"! My main choice of weapon? the arredondo comp cleaning tool and a dentist cleaning tool along with some solvents. What's your weapon? Screwdrivers? Dremel with bits? solvents? Blasting? Beads?
My brake is effective, but also quite noisy, and there's also the concussion. Of course I wear both plugs and muffs, but after a long day on the range I get a starting headache. Have anyone tried a CRD device on a .223 IPSC/3-Gun rifle? Does it increase the recoil notably, and do the reduced concussion make it more comfortable to shoot? I've thought about getting a steel suppressor, which would help with both the noise and concussion, but I assume that would lead to huge mirage and insanely accelerated barrel wear near the crown..? Thanks!
This thing is awesome. In a small brief testing period of my own, it far beats out the V12. Less Powder, 115g Major, and much softer in hand. I do not have this barrel reamed by the good folks at PD yet. I was very anxious to test it out and quickly made up some loads I knew wouldn't touch major with a 115 from the V12, but Might with the Durso comp. Sure enough I made 166pf with 115g Blues over 7.9g of Power pistol. Loaded @ .....1.06. I can't wait to do more testing with a better powder and after reaming. Thoughts are on AA7.
