Hi there! This will be my first forum post ever, so thank you all for bearing with me and the mistakes I'm sure to make. I just recently purchased a rock island compact 9mm 1911 with the thought that I could purchase a punisher style bushing compensator for it to give it some length but I may have been wrong. If any of you know of such a thing I would greatly appreciate any info I can get. Thanks again to all of you

Hi and welcome. My recommendation is just shoot it the way it is for a while. The added weight on the front might make it nose-heavy.

Welcome!

Although my most frequent carry gun is built with a compensator, I wouldn't alter your gun. Leave it as is.

The only compensator design I would (and do) use is one that's integral to the barrel (all fabricated from one piece of steel); not an add-on. But that's quite a subject unto itself. Not for this sub-section.

Welcome to the forum, nice pistol.
Just a friendly word of advice, put the thumb safety on before inserting anything into the trigger guard, or you are asking for a negligent discharge. :(

Welcome from FL and that looks like a Bull Barrel gun. If so, nope nothing out there for it. If it's a bushing barrel gun look at Wilson Combat for their bushing comp. It's the only one on the market that's worth a darn.

^^^^^^

What he said, and another welcome from Florida.

BTW: purchase some additional optic fiber for your front sight, the fiber breaks after a number of rounds and requires replacement.

It's very quick and easy to do with snippers and a cigarette lighter.

Google how to replace the optic fiber on youtube, it's easier to do than to explain verbally.

Good luck with your new 1911.

Good pic ... hopefully triple-checked that the chamber was clear.
#8-o

A search using the terms:

"1911 muzzle brake 9mm officer" *

... turned up a few interesting-looking hits. Looks as though there are some being made.


* "officer" chosen as lots of people use "officer" as a short-hand for "general officer's model" ; and the RIA "Compact" ("Ultra CS, right?) line are of approx. general officers' model dimensions.
