Muzzle Break

I have a small pneumatic gun. 2" barrel 4" chamber blah blah blah. The way it's configured produces a lot of muzzle rise. I have seen other muzzle breaks on this site, but they look like they eject gas out the side for countering recoil and not muzzle rize. Does anyone know of a way to make a muzzle break that counters muzzle rise?

Firstly, it's muzzle <b>brake</b>, its function is after all to arrest the movement of the barrel.

If you want to counter muzzle rise, simply drill holes in the top of the muzzle to direct the flow of gas upwards.

Well excuse me for freakin spelling it wrong. geez. If you understand what I am asking down put down an answer or a thought; not a stupid correction.

Based on your suggesstion, I am thinking of putting ( not gluing) a coupler on the muzzle. And than taking a 6" pipe with some 6-8 holes drilled into the top, and putting that on the coupler

1. That's a mistake worth correcting
2. He DID offer "an answer or a thought." Chill out.

I'm a huge fan of taking a tee and using a hole saw/dremel tool to remove the perpindicular face, so it looks like this:

1. break brake. WOW:) really important! Come on. You know what I mean
2. I noticed

Would the tee help with muzzle rize, or just recoil? Could I plug one of the holes and have the open one facing upwards?

Ok, petty little spelling corrections aside, Would verticly mounting a tee as a BRAKE with one hole pugged work to counter annoying muzzle rize?

Probably not, but if you drilled holes in the top it would decrease both felt recoil and muzzle rise.

So, could I just use a coupler and six inches of pipe with the holes in the top. I dont want to drill the holes into the barrel itself

<b>Petty little spelling corrections or not, realize one thing:

You are a "newb" to these forums, posting a "newb" question in a "Newb" forum.

Mr.Plow and fullmetaljacket are highly respected members of these forums and have provided, over the years, a wealth of information to people much like yourself.

Getting on their bad side by not taking a little constructive criticism, whether it was intended to be sarcastic or just in good fun, is <b>not</b> the way to go about obtaining the information you seek.

You could have just as easily taken the sarcasm and thanked him for the correction, instead of trying to label his as "stupid".
