Yeah, I didnít see how it could modify recoil, but thatís what the website called it. Anyway, I was questioning the validity of a 22lr even requiring a break.

The typical 22lr has used it energy up in approximately 16.5" of barrel. Longer barrels will start decreasing velocity. There is nothing there to brake.
The steel recoil pin really needs to be changed on all of the 10-22's. Recoil will eventually elongate the holes for the pin. Especially if you are shooting a lot of hyper velocity like stingers.

My muzzle break is a YHM Mite.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
