    I've never seen one before. I can see why the design is so loud though.

    JP Enterprises 'Recoil Eliminator'. Just googled it and they still sell 'em. Its interesting that they claim 'match wins' as validation of performance. Wait...what?

    The pic I posted above was intended to be a bit humorous..ie a massive brake on an ar15, but in fact it is really as effective as it should be...even on a 223. Makes it feel like a 22lr. Just VERY VERY LOUD.

    They were made for heavy magnums (with a larger version if you can believe it), but you can imagine the blast from that. Had one on a 30-378 Wthby that was super effective, but your head would ring if you were under cover like at a shooting range.

    They are heavy too, this one is about 8ozs. Changes your POI by FEET. Whole different world for load development as barrel vibrations are massively skewed by this heavy bottom weighted mass at the tip of the barrel.

    I agree my description of trajectory is very poor to say the least. I can live with good, better or bad it's all nomenclature

    8 ozs.!? On the end of an AR that is truly ludicrous and just about doubles the weight of the gun.

    The AR-15 has pretty minimal recoil on it's own. A muzzle break seems superfluous on this weapon. On a Barrett M82-A1, sure. But not an AR-15.

    Don't you remember that reporter that suffered PTSD just from firing an AR-15? He needed more than just a muzzle brake on one.

    Oh boy, that would cause a ruckus at the range. Numerous times the old bastards in the lane shooting for precision would bitch about the guy next to them with muzzle brakes.
    Ok with me though. Have a big ass muzzle brake on Mosin Nagant. Last time I used it, it flew off about 20 yards.

    Waaaay back when I tried a set screw muzzlebrake on a Romanian M44. Blew if off on the 4th shot. Still don't think its landed yet.

    So this one is a little different, an Olympic pistol (FAS 601). I bought it from a guy who made it to the final qualification tournament for the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. Its in 22 short. It has the best trigger...place your finger lightly on the shoe and *think* fire and you're off! So smooooooth. I've shot it outdoors and results nothing to speak off as I didn't have match ammo. I'll get better ammo and shoot indoors and see what i'm really capable of. Fits like a glove. FAS 601 OLYMPIC PISTOL - 1.jpg FAS 601 OLYMPIC PISTOL - 2.jpg

    I just picked up a Huntsman and thought I finally had a nice .22 and you had to post that.

    I'll still love your Colt Huntsman Waltesefalcon.

    Would like to take Wryfox's target creation out for a spin though.

    Best .22 autos I can muster, a High Standard Supermatic Trophy from 1973 and a Colt Woodsman Target Model from 1928.

    I have High Standard Supermatic and a Colt Woodsman Target Model. However my favorite in 22 pistols is the Ruger Mk II Government Model.

    Here are both my new to me Huntsman, it even came in the original box and still has its warranty card and cleaning brush. I didn't wipe it down before the photos so you can see a bit of a sheen from the oil but there is also a bit of wear on the left side of the barrel. Here is my Standard too, great gun that I have cycled a lot of rounds through over the years. It is about to become a Christmas gift for my middle son.

    Think composite fiber barrels are new? Cool modern tech, right?

    How about 1959 Winchester Win-Lite.....steel liner with glass fiber wrapping and resin cover. $149 in 1959 = $1300 today, Casual search on Gunbroker found several, avg ~$450.

    IIRC these weren't on the market long because a few of these barrels split.
    Same happened with early Armalite AR barrels made by a similar method.
    I think it was a matter of the thin steel liner expanding and contracting with heat of firing causing the fiber shell to degrade.

    Hatcher wrote of experiments in turning down 1903 Springfield barrel as thin as possible with surprising results.
    Main problem with very thin barrel or liner walls is the effect of any defect in the steel is greatly magnified.
    I remember a field test of a sporting rifle where the barrel split at the point where a dovetail for a rear sight was cut a bit deeper than it should have been. A microscopic fissure had opened up at the thinnest point. The barrel was toast but only other damage was the rear sight taking wings.
