    After installing and testing the Street Comp/Face Shooter threaded bbl on my SI 419, all I can say is WOW. Now I'm thinking I really want a Street Comp'd G26. With the options of switching between extended 15-17 rd mags, or choosing the stock 10-rounders for slightly more discreet carry, I see a comp'd 26 as the perfect multi-purpose (or multi-option) pistol. Has anyone tried the Comp on a 26 yet, and if so, how did/do you like it?

    Re the stock springs questions, at the risk of saying, "Gabe told you so," some of my range mags were loaded with Freedom Munitions reman 9mm 115gr FMJ that I bought several years ago. I still have a coupla thousand rounds of that stuff, and while it works fine as training ammo for hammer-fired guns and most stock Glocks, it led to numerous stovepipes and other FTF issues w/ the Comp installed. However, when switching to my social ammo (Gold Dot 124gr +P JHP), the Comp'd 419 ran flawlessly... just as Gabe advised it would.
    Waitin' for a squeeze...

    Question for the SI Crew regarding CC installation:
    I have a Gen3 19 for which I just received a threaded Faceshooter and Carry Comp to install. How close to the slide should I thread the comp? I can stop the comp with about an 1/8" gap or go one more revolution and the comp rests against the slide with just enough clearance to allow for full battery. But I mean just! Like a piece of paper between the slide and comp will keep the barrel from full lock up. Flush mounted looks better but that don't mean shit if reliability is compromised. Advice? I'm new to the whole comp thing.

    I will let Shop Monkey respond. But here is an image of my Glock 19X

    Yeah, it's hard to see the gap because of shadows.

    Here's some pics of mine. Note that my 1/8" guesstimate was off... It's probably closer to 1/16".

    With the small gap:


    And Flush mount:

    Wouldn’t you want a small gap in order to avoid the repeated impact of the slide?

    Looks fantastic. I’ve been considering one just like this. Gabe, what are your thoughts on this frame selection? Any cons? I think the only thing I dislike is the lack of a cutout in front of the mag well. Of course, extended mags negate that need.

    In a few weeks I will do a short video on the various comp systems we do. A comped 43, 48, 26, 19, and even for fun...a comped 34.

    A Comped 26 is like a short framed Glock 19. A comped 19 is like a short framed slightly shorter slide 34. My two favorites are the Comped 19 and a Comped 19X. The 19X with a comp is like a 34 sized weapon.

    IMO (because one is never "H" when he is above the crowd), the properly comped pistol is an advance that is on par with a Trijicon RMR.
