Anonymous asked: How does Kriss's recoil reduction system work?
Added at 8:44pm — 115 notes
When the weapon fires. there is a force that pushes backwards in line with the bore. Normally this force would cause the weapon to “kick” which usually causes the muzzle to rise and to move off target. In the Kriss the bolt moves on a cam that moves a counterweight downward, redirecting the recoil force in a way that attempts to counteract the normal rearward kick and muzzle rise.
