Recoilless firearms


Arms historian Max Popenker read my blog post about the Australian company that claims to have produced recoilless firearms and immediately came up with three patents for recoiless guns going back to 1908.

Both involve pushing a lot of mass forward to counter the recoil from the bullet.
