One of the latest handgun comps to hit the market is the Exos pistol compensator from Faxon Firearms. Faxon sent a release about the Exos, asking, what is the best pistol compensator – and what makes it the best?
There’s been a resurgence in pistol compensators this year as a few manufacturers have come out with options for various handgun models. Anything improving pistol accuracy is worth checking out.
Read on for the rest of what Faxon sends.
Best Pistol Compensator Available?
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.
This 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 upgrade yields the following improvements:
- 25-40% less felt recoil and muzzle rise
- Same recoil with more powerful ammo. The more powerful the ammo (such as +P Ammo), the harder the pistol compensator works
- Better tracking of red dot optics for faster follow-up shots
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.
Here’s their video on the EXOS:

Best Pistol Compensator 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 (as Faxon and RE Factor Tactical tell it)
The EXOS is one of the best pistol comps 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.
