    correct me if i m wrong : compensator normally helps make quicker following shot. but for single shot airgun that serves no propose. also when u feeling the muzzle lift which indicated the air presure goes out the barrel. of coz the pellet has push out already. by that time. who care where the muzzle goes?

    You are correct. It is for a very important thing- FOLLOW THROUGH (seeing the pellet fly and strike), with to much muzzle lift you cant see the pellet.

    Would like a report back on the effects pls lewis.

    Also do you think that my carbine would create more muzzle flip than a classic version? Perhaps it's just the way I hold it though but I notice a rise and movement to the right after the shot.

    The only way to see if it works is to fit a comp. The carbine is only a few mm. shorter than the classic so I don't think there will be a major differance between the muzzle flip of the two.

    The application of a muzzle brake (compensator) on an air rifle obviously has no bearing on their primary purpose as applied to an IPSC pistol or semi-auto rifle. As lewis rightly states it aids with your follow through by allowing easier maintenance of sight picture to watch the fall of shot.

    There is also the point that it removes the bulk of the turbulence that occurs as the pellet exits the barrel and the propellant air expands in all directions. It has been shown by experimentation in the UK that venting the exhausting air away from the pellet during the first few milliseconds of its free flight improves accuracy.

    Very very noisy, but it is for ft. Have a great silencer for hunting.

    Looks aggresive!

    How does it work? Muzzle flip all but gone?

    Got a pic of the business end?

    Should have had it vented on both sides Lewis then it would sound just like an EV2. He He! Would'nt pressure differential inside tend to push the pellet off balance when vented on one side like that???
