Muzzle brakes

Unread postAuthor: drex » Tue Jun 07, 2011 10:28 pm

I routed out a simple muzzle brakes today.

I have no idea how well it will work, I had to pretty much just guess on its geometry, I made the hole size 2.375", and the distance between the slots .5". Does any one have any thoughts, insights or experience with different or similar designs.

Thoughts eh? :)

That's kind of neat. :D

Maybe useful link...

Pic is gone now, but it was the classic "hole in the side" muzzle brake.

Have spoken with a couple guys who have a TON of experience with airguns, one guy said optimum angle for slots was 17degrees....other guy said 15 degrees....I say split the difference. :wink:

Have built a few airstrippers, one that functions as a compensator. Improvements in accuracy were obvious once adjusted. Have done one in polished aluminum too...it's pretty, but doesn't belong to me anymore. :)

Group without the stripper installed. Crosman 2240.
