I am submitting my review of the Jager Products Compensator designed
for the Lone Wolf (LWD) threaded barrel. I am by no means a
competition shooter. I'll just say that I have been around guns long
enough to be comfortable and know what I like. This is my first
product review that I have posted. I usually just read all of the
research & information here on GT. Finally figured that I should pay
back some knowledge. I hope you all find this as interesting as I
My gun, additions & the test parts:
-I added a captured stainless guide rod with 17lb spring.
-LWD threaded barrel
-LWD comp,(borrowed from a buddy)
-Jager Products Comp
fit & finish:
I love the way this comp looks on my Glock 17. Jager Products did a
great job of matching the slide contours. The serrations match the
serrations at the rear of the slide. It looks so much better than the
LWD comp. I do not have a scale small enough to weigh the comps.
There is a distinct difference in weight between the two comps. The
Jager comp is lighter. Therefore the nose is not as front heavy with
the Jager comp. It feels very balanced. It also fits nicely into the
Glock carry case installed. The only issue that I have is with fit on
the barrel. It does not mount as close to the barrel as I would have
liked to see. I am unsure if this was by design or not. I suppose LWD
could have changed barrel design at some point. I have already emailed
Jager Products with this thought/suggestion.
I took 400 rounds of 9mm winchester white box 124gr FMJ. I decided to
do range test in 4 parts (A, B, C & D). Each part to consist of the following:
-40 of the shots to be taken at 25 feet.
-40 of the shots to be taken at approximately 35-40 feet.
-last 20 to be taken at 50 feet.
I was figuring anything under 20 feet wouldn't really take into account
the full advantage of the compensators. Though I could be wrong.
A. 100 rounds with factory Glock barrel
B. 100 rounds through LDW threaded barrel with no compensators.
C. 100 rounds through LDW threaded barrel with LWD compensator.
D. 100 rounds through LDW threaded barrel with Jager compensator.
A. reasonable groups (everything on the paper in the target) with
expected amount of recoil.
B. shots were not discernible from factory Glock barrel. reasonable
groups with the same expected amount of recoil.
C. groups were better. recoil was light. muzzle rise was noticeably
D. groups were even better. recoil was not as light as LWD, but much
better than no comp at all. muzzle rise was definitely reduced, even
more than the LWD.
Test D - Jager compensator at 50 feet
I really like how it follows the factory contours of the Glock. It
definitely serves its intended purpose of reducing muzzle rise. The
muzzle rise control was amazing over shooting factory. The amount of
recoil reduction was just right for me. I figured out during this test
that I like some recoil. My Glock now shoots flat & reliably. My only
dislike on the Jager compensator was the mounted location on the
barrel. Though we are talking less than 1/4 of an inch. I would whole-
heartedly recommend the Jager comp to anyone who is thinking about
compensating their Glock.
I have been reading about competition shoots for a while now. I need
to look into the rules a little more. I enjoyed shooting with the comp
so much, I think these competitions would be a blast (pardon the pun).
Also, I still find it amazing that we don't see the muzzle blast while
shooting with comps installed. I know its related to our point of focus
& all. I had quite a few comments while at the range regarding how
cool the muzzle blast looked.
