    Sounds like an excellent way to risk reliability. Honest outlaw did a video about compensators and reliability. Not a good idea.

    Although they may be helpful, and are becoming more common on more powerful pistol designs, I don't think I would use one on a pistol not designed for it.

    In a belly to belly situation or in a vehicle, you could be shooting yourself or a passenger in the face with gases and potential spalling. There was a really good video demonstrating this a while back but i cant seem to find it. It popped up in a discussion of the barrel porting on the sig 365 SAS and how its not as great a feature as it would seem on paper when put in a real world situation.
