There’s been a resurgence in pistol compensators this year as a few manufacturers have come out with options for various handgun models. Are comps worth the hype, especially for concealed carry?

Faxon Firearms says, “Anything improving pistol accuracy is worth checking out.”

That said, let’s take a look at the Faxon Firearms EXOS.

From the Faxon release.

Faxon EXOS | Is It The Best Pistol Compensator?

Constructed of black anodized 6061 Aluminum, the Faxon EXOS features an angled front port single chamber design, enabling the compensator to improve shot-to-shot accuracy by reducing muzzle climb and recoil.

Watch the video, see what you think. 

The EXOS’ specially designed port design allows gas to deflect upwards as opposed to only deflecting to the sides, reducing the up-and-down muzzle movement and allowing your sights to reset on target much faster.

The Faxon EXOS Pistol Compensator is designed to fit flush with the slide and has been optimized for Faxon match-grade pistol barrels. For all other threaded pistol barrels, the barrel should protrude .600″ or less for a flush fit.

Best Pistol Compensator (Including For Concealed Carry)

If you want to add a compensator to your concealed carry pistol, the Faxon EXOS Comp is a great choice. 

Concealed carry holsters are often not too forgiving when it comes to pistol compensators. The EXOS Comp addresses these issues with its low-profile design that mimics the profile of the pistol’s slide.

The EXOS will work with any open-ended holster designed for your pistol. Even IWB holsters can work comfortably with this compensator.

Conclusion

We’re confident you’ll agree the Faxon EXOS is one of the best pistol compensators to hit the market. 

Granted it’s not the only player in town, but its unique port design, ease of installation, and performance have put the competition on its heels.
