People have on occassion made reference to the weight of a muzzle brake or moderator possibly altering harmonics and being a factor in the increase, or decrease, of accuracy. Has anyone experimented in this department? What results and conclusions did you come to? I plan, when I have some spare time, to have a dabble myself using a barrel mounted weight on my spare free floated Steyr. If it will make much difference I don't honestly know but I'm curious to see if it will produce any noticable effects over extremes of adjustment and if it does to what degree it can be tuned. Thoughts on the subject would be much appreciated
I have tried various muzzle weights/muzzle breaks on my ancshutz and settled on one of keith allens breaks .it gives me the best groups at 50 yards . reasonable every where else . i dunno if you can tune an air rifle for all the distances . ??? HOLLY
