Last week’s question and possible answers:
What is reduced when a muzzle brake is added to a firearm?
- Missed targets
- Choke constriction
- Bore diameter
The correct answer is Recoil. Reducing recoil is the most common reason for adding a muzzle brake to a firearm. The downside is that it often increases noise. It does not involve choke constriction or bore diameter, and it may or may not help with missed targets.
