Which reduces recoil and muzzle flip the most, recoil reducers (Sprinco and Harrts)or compensators? Does it make sense to use these in conjunction with each other? What is recommended for a .45 in BE competition? Thanks to all.

A comp will reduce recoil more; but, there is a tradeoff. When a comp is used, you must increase the charge, or you will have ejection problems. Any good comp will do; just remember that you have to increase the gas pressure to make it work. This will help especially during timed and rapid fire. The recoil buffer will help prevent frame battering and cracking. You do know that you can only use your comp gun for the Open class, and not in Service Pistol matches, or for leg matches, don't you?

Powderman: About recoil buffers... Are the washer type to be used or the spring type? This handgun will not be used for Service or leg matches. I am shooting the National Match Course. I can't find in the rule book as to what exactly Open Class is. Thanks for the reply.

I use the washer-types, like the Shok-Buff from Wilson. These work great for me. As far as Open Pistol is concerned, I think that is covered under Rule 3.3, in the NRA Pistol handbook. Where do you compete?
