redirecting recoil is FTW.
Saw that on FW, pretty interesting technology.
That doesn't look like it's reducing it that much
Compare that to someone shooting a Thompson or UMP FA. The difference is pretty significant. His groups alone tell the difference.
look at the firing mechanism, it pushes recoild down and into the shoulder. its a clever idea.
I carry medicine balls FTW
does that mean you think that a recoil mitigating design isn't useful?
getting one for christmas
To whom is your question directed?
whats that from
Check the text. Fifth Element.
jaimezx- medicine ball carrying. That might have gone over my head. Wasn't sure what you meant.
Did you watch the video? The guy compared 9mm to 45 as a baseball to a medicine ball.
Don't know if tonight's episode was a rerun but it featured the Masada. I'm guessing it was a rerun as it didn't mention that Bushmaster would be producing it and not Magpul.
I guess I'm retarded but I didn't see anything about recoil redirection...
very disappointing vid. Mis-information about .45ACP "gonna knock him down" and nothing about recoil-redirection.
On that same note, did it annoy the hell out of anyone else that they put some lame ass sound FX over the suppressed Masada? Thats the one thing that bothers me about FW, they put lame ass hollywood gun sound effects over the real deal. LET ME HEAR THE REAL DEAL. Not some lame ass 007 pew pew pew faggotry.
I think it depends on the shooter. I've had more than 1 competition shotgunner tell me they don't like the knox stocks because they feel like they make the recoil impulse longer, they'd rather take the recoil, get it over with, and be on the next target faster. I have yet to form my own opinion.
Some of the recoil is directed into a sprung damper mass that swings down into the handle in front of the magazine, redirecting some of the recoil downward. I think the damper mass has some additional function like stripping new rounds off the magazine or something.
EDIT: it appears to be the bolt itself that recoils down.
since I saw that episode,I have wanted that gun.
Did anyone else think Hollywood Bob looked a lot like the host?
