Getting my new compensator tomorrow. Saw cell phone pics of it and it looks great. I'm like a kid that can't wait to open his Christmas presents. !amazed !amazed !amazed !amazed
correct me if i m wrong : compensator normally helps make quicker following shot. but for single shot airgun that serves no propose. also when u feeling the muzzle lift which indicated the air presure goes out the barrel. of coz the pellet has push out already. by that time. who care where the muzzle goes?

The application of a muzzle brake (compensator) on an air rifle obviously has no bearing on their primary purpose as applied to an IPSC pistol or semi-auto rifle. As lewis rightly states it aids with your follow through by allowing easier maintenance of sight picture to watch the fall of shot.
There is also the point that it removes the bulk of the turbulence that occurs as the pellet exits the barrel and the propellant air expands in all directions. It has been shown by experimentation in the UK that venting the exhausting air away from the pellet during the first few milliseconds of its free flight improves accuracy.
