We all know that a longer barrrel mean higher velositys.....right?
Saw a gun show on tv the other night that blew me away. I would have lost all my hard earned
cash on this bet !!
A guy wanted his .45 Tommy gun redone.................
Shorten the stock, chop off the end of the barrel and shorten it also and reattach the muzzle brake.
At the range the stock barrel length had a speed of 805 fps and when they chopped off 2-3 inches the gun
had a fps of 850 or more..................... So how does that work ?
Does the old .45 ACP with its slow speed have too much barrel resistance and actually start to slow down going down a longer factory barrel? Just shows that you learn some thing new ,every day.
On the same show some dude wanted a 50 cal hunting rifle made for him, that would weigh under 20 pounds so he could carry it in the field and be able to make long shots if needed. Match guns weight 40 pounds for a reason !! Hello.........
