Witt Machine Cannon and Muzzle Brake

Witt Machine was at the range showing off their assortment of muzzle devices. The most eye catching was this shoulder cannon. I was told that even though they strapped the cannon down with some robust heavy duty straps, it ripped through 5 of them due to the muzzle climb when they shot it remotely with a string. They used 3/4 lbs of powder.

      That’s exactly why they sell muzzle brakes for it.

      It’s a pity that the cannon is nothing more than fireworks and it’s not shooting anything… barely a spectacular technology demonstrator. ..

    So when are we going to see an obrez version?

    It’d be cooler if that was some super suppressor for that Mosin…I’d call it the “Zaitzev”…but that’s just me.

      A big lightweight suppressor wouldn’t be a bad idea. Thin inner titanium tube, thick aluminum tube outside. Stainless steel baffles.

    Bought one of their brakes for my Tikka T3 in 30-06… I can shoot it all day, now, with no change in groups!

    Is it a muzzleloader cannon or simply a noise maker?
