Awesome Weird Guns

Cool. Trying to figure out what’s up with the double muzzle brake on that Saiga.

    I remember seeing that Saiga a couple years ago… I want to say it was an exercise in ridiculousness…

    It looks like the Saiga has a pair of mid-barrel compensators. I can’t find that exact model, but here are some similar products:

    I can’t believe they missed the Moe Szyslak Special

    Everybody needs a double-barreled, pump-action shotgun.

    That is a pure competition gun, designed and built for the “action shooting” games like International Multi-Gun or USPSA 3-Gun. The mid-barrel compensators cover a series of small ports that introduce gas into a larger chamber with either angled vents or internal baffles in order to reduce muzzle movement. Testing at Dreadnaught led us to believe that the combination of angled ports and a mid-barrel compensator reduced perceived recoil by about half. Jim, a great guy and talented gunsmith over at Firebird Precision, builds a heavily raked single chamber design (usually employed in pairs) that also works well and looks rather sporty!

    ‘Cause two is better than one, of course.

    Two of my brakes don’t seem to “do” anything more (and certainly not enough to justify the price increase), but mine work on a different principle than the “raked” brakes…plus, if you move the gas ports back and then put the comp where they used to be, the pressure is enough to make ’em work. Hanging out at the end of the barrel…not so much.

    Jim’s brakes work a bit differently, though, and his are intended to be fitted in pairs. In that case, two are better than one!

    I really want a Moe Szyslak Special, though…

    I like the belt fed with the chainsaw grip layout… The grenade launcher is also a nice touch…
