We designed the KVP XL Linear comp for pistol caliber carbine, and pistol builds. The extra long length of this comp makes it an extremely functional linear comp, by utilizing a HUGE expansion chamber. In addition to the blast controlling functionality, it allows builders the option to use longer Hand Guards in short barreled pistol caliber rifle and pistol builds. Machined from billet 6061 AL, the KVP XL Linear comp is an excellent light weight, highly functional compensator for your pistol caliber builds!
The KVP XL Pistol Caliber Linear Comp is only suggested to be used with PISTOL CALIBERS. The XL Linear Comp is not rated to be used with centerfire rifle calibers. Using this muzzle device with a centerfire rifle caliber will void the warranty on this product and is not recommended.

Pistol caliber carbines such as 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, and 10mm are a blast to shoot but can be tough on AR-15's internal components. Without a properly tuned blowback system, you run the risk of being overly destructive on internal lower parts. Running a blowback AR15 with a suppressor can further increase the risk for damage. In addition to a properly weighted buffer, the KVP Extra Power recoil spring is a must! The KVP XP 17-4 SS spring offers increase pre-load over standard springs. The additional preload helps increase the Blowback systems dwell time.
Kaw Valley Precision Linear Comps are part of a small family of compensators aimed at taming muzzle concussion. The KVP linear comp, collects and redirects muzzle gases away from the shooter. This redirection helps reduce the perceived decibels the shooter experiences at his or her ear. By pushing excessive noise and concussion downrange, not only will the shooter experience a much softer shooting experience, bystanders will also benefit from the redirection of the muzzle gasses. Kaw Valley Precision has been a part of many successful applications of our linear comps in many shooting disciplines including: CQC (close quarters combat), Competitive Shooting, Varmint Hunting, Law Enforcement, and Indoor Ranges to name a few.
Left Hand versions of our Standard Linear Comp are perfect for AK-47 (and other) applications. Knowing that various AK barrels are notorious for having non-concentric barrel threads, we've opened up the exit bore to allow ample wiggle. The exit bore diameter is .450" (11.4mm) which will handle a caliber range 9mm and down in diameter.
NOTE: PLEASE INSURE PROPER BORE/COMP ALIGNMENT PRIOR TO FIRING THE WEAPON. CONTACT A LOCAL GUNSMITH IF YOU ARE UN-ABLE TO PREFORM AN ALIGNMENT TEST.
