I have a G21 and like many G21 shooters, that I have read about, I experienced brass flying back into my face when shooting 45 ACP or 45 Super.


I was doing a deep clean on my slide one day and I lost my spring loaded bearing. Rather than wait for the replacement parts I put the slide back together and went to the shootin hole. While shooting I realized that the brass was being flung into a small area off to my right, NOT INTO MY FACE!

So, when I finally did get my replacement bearings, I cut about one and a half curls (about the thickness of the bearing head) out of the depressor plunger spring and reassembled the slide. I just happened to be in the middle of converting my G21 into a .460 Rowland Zombie Gun so I had to wait a while to get back to the shootin hole.


I finally got my G21 turned into a .460 Rowland Zombie Gun, took my Georgia Arms .460 Rowland 230gr ammo to the shootin hole and fired about 14 rounds, which I felt was adequate for a test run @ $1 per round. I was very pleased to note that the brass was still being flung off to the right and not back into my face. I have successfully fixed my brass in the face problem. Hallelujah!

Hmm... Ill have to try this with my g21, I dont so much get brass to the face so much as brass to the arms, shoulders, and the top of my head bouncing off my ear muffs.

Is that a muzzle brake on the barrel?

That is an EFK Firedragon 45acp compensator. Which I no longer attach because I cut the threads off of my LWD 45TH in order to facilitate EDC. I removed the black finish and polished it some, so it looks nothing like what you will see @ http://www.efkfiredragon.com/

Considering the fact that I was using the comp to help build a 460 Rowland G21, I was not impressed with it's ability to compensate my gun.
