I appreciate Paul's post about the compensated barrels. I have only seen one of them ever... I always wanted to find another one and now I am not so interested. Does anyone know how many pistols were ever shipped with a compensated barrel.

The other question I have is... how effective is the barrel bushing style compensator? I can feel the difference, but it doesn't seem dramatic... Is there any data regarding their true effectiveness?

Bought my Grizz in the late 80's. 45 Win Mag. Came through with two bushings. One was a compensator and bushing combo (integral) and the other was a regular 1911-style bushing. Both were fitted to the barrel.

Have always used it with the compensator/bushing. Just this past week took it apart and gave it a good scrubbing. Put on the regular bushing. Will test in the next couple of weeks.

Offhand groups at 50-75 feet were within 2 inches with the comp. Without remains to be seen. Ammo I have been using is Win Super X, 230 grain FMC.
