Apex Tactical’s MRAT FNX 45 Compensator — Reduce Recoil and Climb
Apex Tactical Specialties, an Arizona-based accessories company, is now offering the MRAT FNX 45 compensator for FNX-45 pistols with factory threaded barrels.
The MRAT, or Muzzle Rise Amplitude Tamer, was designed to dramatically reduce both felt recoil and muzzle rise of the FNX-45 model pistols while shooting. The reduction is so significant, in fact, that Apex provides a captive-spring guide rod assembly to ensure proper function due to the reduced slide velocity produced by the MRAT.
The MRAT was tested with a variety of SAAMI spec ammunition; from the lightest ‘target’ rounds to +P duty rounds. The result was a 40% to 60% reduction in muzzle rise, with Fiocchi 230gr FMJ giving 44% and Federal 230gr Personal Defense Punch JHP giving 67% reduction, according to Apex. The company did state that results may vary based on both the ammunition used and the individual shooter.
The kit contains the MRAT Compensator, a captive-spring guide rod assembly, two brass tip set screws, and a 1.8ml vial of thread locker fluid. The installation is easy, and Apex provides a detailed how-to video to properly guide customers through the process.
The MRAT comes in Black, which is in stock and available now is $175, or FDE, which has a small wait time and an MSRP of $200.
