I've seen a lot of sniper rifles and pictures of said rifles with a big thing on the end of the barrel, (I think it's called a muzzle brake?) what does it do?
muzzle break=designed to displace gases to reduce felt recoil by up to as much as 40%
To any mod: Feel free to delete this thread, I got what I was looking for.
on my ROMAK 3
very nice hows it shoot? dose it group will? was thinking of getting one :>)
That sort of looks like a dragunov. Do you hunt with that or just shoot targets?
Edit: Epic fail, I didnt see hamps post about not shooting it yet, I guess I could ask do you plan on hunting with it?
not much of a hunter, I will be using it to shoot Tannerite targets that are a long way off. It is the Romain version of the Druganov, the only difference between the two is the fore grip.
very nice, where did you get that side mounting scope? I like scopes but I still want to be able to use my iron sights on my saiga .308, will that satisfy?
they look like thrust reverser on a jet engine.. Obviously work the same way..
Greasy i was not aware that they could reduce felt by 40% but that sounds logical..
that's not a muzzle brake on your rifle it's a flash suppressor,what you have does nothing to "brake" the rifle,it only disperses gas out all sides,thereby reducing flash.
the break on say a Barrett is angled up and back if I remember right.
will reduce recoil by as much as 50% but at a cost of increased noise level,the Barret .50 cal i shot had a muzzle brake on it,which was the style you described,angled out at almost90 degrees from the barrel,the recoil was equivalent to a 12 gauge shooting a slug,IMO,probably a bit more than that,but manageable and loud,and fun,lol
on here somewhere of some idiot trying to shoot a Barrett or Cheytac without a brake and it damn near flipped him.
He was on my DART (designated armed response team) squad due to his interest in weapons, tells us one night all about the new Barrett he bought.. If i remember right this one didn't have any sort of magazine.. i might be wrong here, did they make a single shot.. at any rate he takes it out the next day, and comes to work with stitches over his right eye.. Said it damn near knocked him out, and was bleeding so much he couldn't enjoy firing it.. You can just imagine him with that scope (with out the cool eye protector of Hamps) up to his eye like he's firing a 22..
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess he didn't have a muzzle brake on it..
Must be a bear to shoot. Ouch
has a bud in it.. Hamp I'm thinking you should get in touch with anheuser bush... that reminds me of a limerick.. and sure hope the spell check works.. anyway (add timeout) im thinking you could get a kick back from them for the advertisement..
Cant remember how the limerick went but ends with a girl from anheuser, who wakes up sadder butwiser..
cardboard toilet seat cut-out?
Before it was called the M107 and it didn't even feel like a 12 gauge. Maybe a .308. I also fired an Accuracy International .300WM the last time I shot with my group of friends in Arizona..*sniff* not gonna cry, not gonna cry...I miss that state and those guys. Anyway, the muzzle brake on that thing reduced the recoil to LESS than my M4. It was amazing.
