The best way to document the full scope of the muzzle movement of your firearm is to leave the rear of your rifle unsupported and to take your shot from a bench. Then it is merely a matter of checking where the crosshairs ended once you’ve taken your practice shot.
Old hands in a shooting range, or close friends of yours who knows the what makes a shooting practice tick when using a muzzle brake for minimal blowback, may recommend that you fasten a laser device to your firearm and utilize a slow-motion camera that can handle a recording of 240 fps, that happens to be 10 times faster than your standard video camera.
From here on, you just need to fasten your high-speed camera to your spotting scope, which you can position a couple of yards away to ensure that the gas that escapes from the silencer you fitted wouldn’t obscure the image.
At this stage, you may want to position your target about 30 yards away by using a grid that measures about an inch by an inch square to ensure you have yourself an aiming point.
Then, you’d need to align your laser using the aiming point before taking your shot. The camera would take a recording of the point where the laser moved. For the best results, you should take a couple of shots to give you an idea of how well your rifle performs when equipped with a recoil reducer.
Who knows, you may be pleasantly surprised how well this works out for you. Just analyze the video that you recorded by going through it frame by frame. Soon you’d be able to detect any direct movements when firing a shot. You can even tell how the laser responded under recoil before the bullet reaches the target.
Shortly, the laser would move to a particular location without fail, and keep on going the minute you take a shot. No doubt it shows how reliable and accurate a noise suppressor is.
Popular Machine Shop Designers Found a Way to Counteract Muzzle Rise
Machine shop owners and brake designers, MadHouse Design in Grants Pass do their utmost to strike a happy balance between not sending too much gas down the barrel of the gun where it forces the barrel downwards and sending sufficient gas upwards to counteract muzzle rise.
Other machine shop owners who tried doing the same did not do too well concerning recoil reduction, so chances are they would not fare too well in counteracting muzzle rise either. Besides, brakes do not fare too well, in general, to redirect gasses the way it should. Therefore, it should come as no surprise to you most designs would not effectively redirect part of the gasses upward to offset muzzle rise.
Some of the modern brakes tend to have a narrow top such as the TBAC and OPS models. Because of this, they end up being too far away from the point of target once a shot got taken. Unfortunately, the TBAC brake is too short and would need a narrower top to redirect enough gas to counteract muzzle rise. However, the OPS does not do any better.
Thanks, in part to the newly designed Triple-port Muzzle Brake (TMB) by MadHouse Design, you would have no trouble in staying on target during any practice round. These designs are engineered for performance in a compact and sleek design. The TMB offers one with a substantial performance improvement at any point where you require fast and accurate shooting.
However, bear in mind that silencers will increase the length of a barrel. You would have to shorten the barrel slightly to make it more manageable. Do not forget to re-sight the rifle once you had the brake installed or removed.
