Preview: Tyrant Designs Uni-Comp

posted on February 10, 2021

As its name suggests, the Tyrant Designs Uni-Comp is a pistol compensator that—due to its unique two-piece construction—is universally compatible with any 9 mm Luger-chambered semi-automatic handgun with a 1/2x28 TPI threaded barrel.

The unit consists of an aluminum body housing and a ported central core, and threading located on the interior of both parts allows the former to be timed to the slide of the host gun with the device then being locked into that position by tightening the core with an included wrench.

Installed aboard an FN 509 Tactical, our test sample noticeably reduced muzzle rise and felt recoil, allowing the sights to be brought back on target much more quickly following a shot. Available in three color variations, each with a black body but with either a gold, nickel or black core, the Tyrant Designs Uni-Comp adds only 0.8 ozs. to the weight of the firearm.

Suggested retail pricing on the Tyrant Designs Uni-Comp is $80. For more information, visit
