2021 saw Faxon Firearms expand heavily on their pistol product offerings. In addition to adding several subcompact barrels to their lineup, they introduced their EXOS line of pistol compensators, with the earliest models being for compact pistols by Glock, SIG, and M&P. Continuing into 2022, Faxon launched their first batch of EXOS compensators for subcompact pistols (G43, G43X, G48), later expanding the EXOS line to include even more comps for M&P Shield/Shield Plus, SIG P365/P365 XL, and Glock Gen 4 Compact handguns.

EXOS pistol compensators are machined from black anodized 6061 Aluminum and feature a uniquely angled front port single chamber design. This enables the compensator to improve consistency while reducing muzzle climb and recoil. The angled ports allow gas to deflect upwards and not just sideways, reducing the up and down muzzle movement and improved reliability, according to Faxon.
The barrel protrusion is designed to fit flush with the slide and has been optimized for Faxon branded barrels. If the user is not using a Faxon barrel, the barrel should protrude at most 0.6” or less. Each compensator ships with a thread locker, two 6/32 set screws, and a 1/16 Allen wrench.
All Faxon EXOS Pistol Compensators are backed by the Faxon Lifetime Guarantee and an MSRP of $85.
