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.
