The Muzzle Brake makes your shots more accurate by reducing sideways kick, while the Recon Barrel lets you aim down sights faster, which is crucial for the fast-paced action in XDefiant. The Superlight Grip and Quick Draw Grip enhance this effect. The Padded Stock balances out the stability and recoil issues, and the Quick Mag speeds up reloading.
