The newest addition to the Wilson Combat line of carry 1911s features a compensated barrel that reduces muzzle flip and perceived recoil when using high-powered self-defense ammunition.
The compensator itself is machined into the barrel as a one-piece assembly, so there are no threads or joints to tighten on the gun. The design of the compensator itself is also streamlined to ensure that the pistol will fit into a standard 1911 holster.
