    Just got my Lone Wolf Threaded Barrel and Carver 3 port Compensator for my G21 SF. Best used with factory loads and stock recoil spring:

    Im curious as to how much recoil that thing knocks off...like was said, RR!

    Looks pretty cool....would def give someone pause if they looked down it...can we get a muzzle end view?

    If nothing else I bet the muzzle flash would blind them.

    The Compensator looks like milled aluminum.

    Is there a set screw on the underside of the Compensator to keep it from backing off while firing? Or, how does it stay threaded in the correct position?

    no there is no set screw on the bottom. My old Lone Wolf comp for the GLock 31 had a set screw...Carver recommends using Red Loctite but I know that it will be tough to remove if you want to do maintenance...I kinda improvised and used plumbing tape to hold it in :)....gotta see how long that holds on lol The Compensators do work ... My old Glock 31 there was a noticeable difference on muzzle rise from the stock barrel to the compensated one. My buddy that has my glock now even notices the big difference. Here's a link where you can get a better view of the comp: http://www.bb-enterprise.biz/item179193.ctlg

    Clever idea on your part!

    There are various types of Lock-Tite, on the market. Perhaps one of the "soft" ones will give you the hold you need, without melting and letting it back off.

    If not, then the Teflon tape sounds like the best "fix" as long as you don't try to put TOO many rounds through before re-taping it.

    I know it's an old thread. I, also, know that, 'Red Loctite' (#271) doesn't belong anywhere on a gun. The stuff isn't hard to get off; it's next to impossible without using Loctite's very expensive (and only sold in a, 'lifetime supply' size) release agent. Even with the agent it's still very tough to get certain parts to let go.

    Believe me, I've worked with various threadlocking compounds for many years; and, I think it safe to say, I know, 'every trick in the book' for getting, mostly, 'Blue Loctite' (#242) to finally let go. In fact the more I use threadlocking compounds the more I like:

    http://www.vibra-tite.com/products/vibra-tite-111-low-strength-threadlocker/ or,

    http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-t...rength-purple-222-thread-locker-prod7934.aspx

    Be kind to yourself, and keep your firearm maintenance costs down. Unless you're frequently using really heavy recoiling firearms, stay away from medium to high strength, thread-locking compounds. Someday the part is going to have to come off the gun. Many, 'gunsmiths' will do an expert job of mangling the part; (or the gun) and a genuinely qualified machinist will charge, 'top dollar' in order to undue the problem for you.

    (Don't even ask, 'How' I know!) :rolleyes:

    I recently purchased a Glock barrel for my G17. It has the threads on the end of it. The rifling goes clear to the end. Shoots great! More accurate than my factory barrel. Reliable also. I got the black one, so it matches my pistol better. I would recommend getting one.
