Fat Comp 2
Update 4 29 2020: There is a considerable noticable reduction in recoil, compared to a rifle with nothing mounted to the end of the barrel. I initially though it was my imagination, or I just got way tougher while staying at home due to the COVID crisis. Well it turns out I am in no way shape or form tougher, and there is actually a 34% reduction in recoil. Somebody has done the experiment…and recorded the data.

The Fat Comp 2 by Strike Industries is 1 of 4 compensators in the Fat Comp line of compensators.
They are meant to work with Strike Industries Cobra Dummy Suppressors, and will fit inside most free float handguard rail systems, as well as directly attach to any AR barrel with a 1/2”x28 thread pitch. They are machined from steel, and feature a mate black finish.
First impressions were good. It’s matte finish is nice, and the quality of the machined steel is very good. Installation onto my AR barrel was straight forward, and the fitment very good. The price of a Fat Comp, is a fraction of other higher priced compensators for very comparable performance. I also managed to achieve the look i wanted.
