    Ok so I dont want this to turn into a debate about using one or not, but is there one out there for barrels that don't have a bushing. I'd like to use one on my kimber commander size, which has no bushing. Any thoughts?

    The only option there is an extended threaded barrel.

    Yup, you'll need and extended barrel threaded to accept a compensator.

    If you had a railed frame, you could have one attached using the rail...like the SIG 220/226/229 Sport models

    Aren't compensators somewhat useless for .45ACP pistols, as the .45ACP is a low pressure round and can't take advantage of the compensator?

    The OP didn't say it was a .45ACP, only that it was a 1911 platform.

    Many 1911 platforms have been equipped with compensator, just usually in different calibers...although the first ones were chambered for the .45ACP
