The T2 compensator has several characteristics that make it superior. This unit, which comes in a .355″ bore diameter only, is fabricated from a single piece of 416R (rifle grade) stainless steel and, therefore, has no need of threads nor the area that the threads would occupy. This allows it to be .400″ shorter and approximately 1½ oz. lighter. Since there are NO threads, it is legal in California, cannot come loose, is a great deal easier for a gunsmith to fit and “clock in”, and is inherently more accurate. To explain further, since the compensator is both bored and rifled at the same time and with the same tooling as the barrel, there can be no misalignment. Because the alignment is perfect, the clearance bore in the compensator can be tighter, and therefore more uniform than is possible in a threaded compensator. With gas pressures equal on all side of the bullet, enhanced accuracy is a given.
