PistolGear "TIKI" Compensator in 9mm

Price: $90.00
Based on 5 ratings. (View)
Custom Fitting (+$50 - See Details Below):

Leveraging the Venturi effect, the steel PistolGear TIKI Compensator is an excellent accessory for USPSA Open competitors, Steel shooters or those just looking to reduce both muzzle rise/flip as well as felt recoil. Our testing, as shown in the below video, shows that muzzle flip was cut in half and the compensator auto-resets making follow up shots faster.

Remember, in order for a compensator to work correctly, you should use higher pressure ammunition.  If you don't, you will get little benefit of the compensator and/or your pistol will not cycle correctly.

We also recommend you use the lightest recoil spring you can find for your pistol as well. For the XD Tactical and the XDM (using our skinny guide rod), we have springs as light as nine pounds!

We designed this compensator to work with suppressor-length threaded barrels (such as those we offer from StormLake). While each compensator includes two nylon-tipped set screws, we suggest the use of RED loc-tite for those using the compensator in competition.

For use with 9MM XD & XD(M) Compatible barrels only.

Custom Fitting:  If selected, PistolGear will fit your Tiki Compensator to your barrel and your slide. The idea is to fit the compensator to your barrel with the smallest gap between your slide and compensator. The cost of this option includes the fit-work as well as the incremental shipping/insurance for the return of your items. If you select this option, you will receive an email with instructions on where to send your slide and barrel. Allow 10 business days from the date your parts are received for fit-work; 15 days is you are also getting a Custom Color.

General Comment: Some fitting may be required.  Should any fitting be required, we highly recommend you use the services of an experienced gunsmith.  If you are the type that wants little to no gap between the end of the slide and the compensator, fitting can be down with a benchtop sander, bench grinder, flat hand file and/or emery paper (assuming you don't have access to a mill).  The tool(s) required will depend on how much gap you want to remove. Go slow, as you cannot put material back - take your time!!

Need lighter recoil spring

- 26th March 2017

Love this muzzle break, and how it looks. I'm using it on a certain service modle 9mm 4". But one problem, rounds don't cycle and I'm having a he'll of a time finding a lighter recoil spring. Any help?[PG NOTE: While a lighter recoil spring helps, you likely need to find "hotter" ammunition. Your everyday 115gr 9MM ammo does not have enough pressure. If you don't reload, look for +P or +P+ ammunition]

Fantastic Compensator for 9MM Major

- 22nd January 2017

We've been building polymer raceguns for the past 15 years but have never built an XDM or XD 9MM Major racegun until the Tiki became available. It's amazing how well it handles the 165+K 9MM ammunition. If you are considering an Open Racegun project with your XD or XDM 9MM, I "HIGHLY" recommend this compensator.

Makes a BIG difference.

My husband put this on my new XDM. I am new to shooting and he thought this would help. It has made a big difference in my shooting. Hitting those darn bowling pins is much faster now and a lot more fun.

Better than expected.

- 27th August 2016

I recently installed this compensator on my XD MOD.2 using a Storm Lake Barrel also purchased from Pistol Gear. I had both items cerakote black so they would match. I will say that I am very impressed with this compensator. Muzzle rise is non existent. I am going to play around with spring weights as I am using 18 pounds (purchased at Pistol Gear along wight the guide rod) at the moment and Pistol Gear suggested something between 11-14 pounds.

Awesome Comp!

- 10th August 2016

We installed the TIKI comp on a customer's XDM. The pistol was built for Steel and USPSA Open. We are blown away by the result of this compensator. The flip is widely reduced and felt recoil is non existent. It was easy to keep the dot on a 10" circle at 25 yards. This is now our go-to comp for our XD customers.
