Hey everyone! I have an interesting idea that not necessarily practical, but I'd like to discuss with yall just for fun. 1. a hypothetical free floating barrel that could revolve around its own axis freely. 2. a hypothetical compensator with unique venting holes that they are lined up with a certain angle to the axis of the barrel, forming a shape of vortex. Now, upon firing, part of the propellant gas escapes through the compensator and creates a gas vortex which causing the whole barrel spin around its central axis. Since we used a part of that propellant energy spinning the barrel, we should feel less energy coming back towards the shoulder, thus, less recoil. we all know that give a bullet a lil spin can stabilize it traveling through the air, now would a spinning barrel give you a more stable handling while firing automatically? Tell me what do you think about it.
