Abstract:

The compensator is attached to the muzzle of a gun to control the motion thereof during the firing of a burst, and thus modifying the dispersion pattern in a desired manner. The device includes an asymmetric channel forming and extension of approximately one half of the guns barrel, mounted in such a way that exhausting propellant gases will rotate the device through an arc following the firing of each round of a burst.
