    Default Does anyone build a "RECOIL ENHANCER" for the .22 that increases muzzle flip?

    Does anyone build a "RECOIL ENHANCER" for the .22 that increases muzzle flip for training purposes?

    Never heard of this....I guess one could drill some small holes in the bottom of the muzzle. The dust signature would be awesome!

    Seriously, what kind of training is this?

    Its a punishment, because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    .22 upper on an AR 15 for practice.

    Didn't the Colt Ace pistols use something to increase the felt recoil to better simulate the .45 for training?

    I would think that anyone who has the necessary equipment to drill a muzzlebrake would be able to do what was described above and drill the bottom of the barrel causing more upward motioin (muzzle flip) on the barrel.

    best recoil enhancer for a 22 is a 223

    Find a muzzle brake that directs the gas mostly upwards and not back. Install it, but so it's indexed upside-down. Done. Then brace yourself from a barrage of arm-chair know-it-alls at the range waiting for the chance to know something you don't and jumping at the chance to tell you your brake is on wrong. That didn't sound bitter did it?

    I don't know that there's even be enough gas present to cause that much flip at all from a .22lr though.

    I don't know, seems like the weight would offset any muzzle flip from the gases on a .22.

    The Williams floating chamber was invented by Mr David Williams in 1940, and it does indeed increase the recoil of the anemic .22, which was the intent.


    Floating chamber
    David Marshall Williams (a noted designer for the U.S. Ordnance Office and later Winchester) developed a mechanism to allow firearms designed for full-sized cartridges to fire .22 caliber rimfire ammunition reliably. His system used a small 'piston' that incorporates the chamber. When the cartridge is fired, the front of the piston is thrust back with the cartridge giving a significant push to the bolt. Often described as accelerated blowback, this amplifies the otherwise anemic recoil energy of the .22 rimfire cartridge.[22] Williams designed a training version of the Browning machine gun and the Colt Service Ace .22 long rifle version of the M1911 using his system. The floating chamber is both a blowback and gas operated mechanism.[23]
    Unfortunately, it is not a simple add-on for every .22.

    Thanks everyone, I will probably just index a muzzle brake upside down and see how that feels.
