Re: LRKM - 3000 yard setup w / supressor

What is the difference in recoil from the suppressor to the break?

So is the cheek weld on the bolt. Looks a bit uncomfortable...

Re: LRKM - 3000 yard setup w / supressor

What is the actual barrel length on the rifle?

Also what is the velocity loss in this setup as compared to a setup without a suppressor?

Re: LRKM - 3000 yard setup w / supressor

I hate shiney atleast as much as everyone here put together , but I just couldn't wait to show it off. I'll post some "finished" photos next week I hope.

Booney - supressors are interesting in terms of recoil reduction, not only do they work at least as good as the best brake they slow the pulse down making more like a shotguns roilling recoil as opposed to the quick slam of the say a 300 RUM.

Triple BB - the rifle you are looking at is left handed, it has a full Kydex cheekpiece that is kind of hard to see in the picture. It is quite comfortable.

Webs - Barrel length is still 30", the velocity is actually about 20 FPS faster with the supressor on. I sacraficed a little noise reduction for a design that would allow retention of the long barrel but still reasonable noise levels.

Glad you guys like it. It is nice to see it well received after the years (5 to be exact) of R & D testing and work it took.

So I take it that the barrel from like 15"-30" is ported to disperse the gases into the baffles? Is that how too integrate a supressor?

No, it is not. There is no porting of the barrel. The design relys on redirecting gasses and reducing gas speed prior to exiting the can through baffel design, a blast baffle and rebound chamber.
