So I can compare orange gear to orange gear, what I can't do is look at a barrel from a vendor and easily see whether or not it's an upgrade over the barrel currently in my gun.
compare ratings on the vendor mod to the rating number on your equipped item. Since armorings can be put in light, medium or heavy armor, the final armor stat will be different for the same mod depending on what base item you put it in. That's why you have to compare ratings. So look on the hilt, armoring or barrel and there will be a note like "rating 100," that's what you want to compare.

The Rating is what you want to look at (aside from the attributes). Hilts, Barrels and Armoring have a Rating. Mods and Enhancements you just want the highest number for your main stat.
