Recoil Reducer

Unread postAuthor: Gun Freak » Fri Mar 05, 2010 4:49 pm

For my next gun, I am thinking about modeling it after the Barret 50 caliber sniper rifle:

It will be another co-ax. Im thinking that if I sleeve the chamber with larger pipe, and put a rather weak spring behind the internals, it can reduce if not eliminate recoil, and it would look pretty cool :D I know it doesn't sound doable, but I was designing it all day and I think I have an idea. What do you guys think?

I didn't insert a link.

Here's a sketch of the design... ask if you need clarification on something because it may not be very explicit.

The sheytac would be simpler to build and you dont need to care about recoil (Id'say you want recoil)

Yeah I want recoil but I also want a way to absorb it. It's just a cool idea to me. And yeah, the pic was working on my desktop but not on my laptop. I'll change it.

After i will have made my 6mm carbine, i will make a chamber sealing ball bearing airgun that looks like an cheytac (some small differences tough) .

Does anybody has an idea of the recoil of a .5" ball bearing at 480 fps?

and again, no need to absorb the recoil ... seriously
The recoil would be less then a 9 mm

@demon

the recoil is very small, i shoot .625in ball bearings at 750fps with just the qev resting on my shoulder and im a bit of a wimp so a .5inch bearing will be just fine
