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

    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?

    .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? :lookaroun

    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.


    Unfortunately, it is not a simple add-on for every .22.
