One of the biggest hurdles to becoming a successful marksman with a rifle is overcoming the rifle’s recoil impulse, muzzle blast and supersonic crack. The easiest way to tame all three of these issues is by using a silencer or sound suppressor on your rifle. The second most effective way is to install a flash suppressor. Unfortunately these devices are heavily regulated if not outright banned in a number of jurisdictions by politicians who know nothing of their use and the safety they provide to shooters. For shooters who live in jurisdictions where legislation is based off the latest spy novel or screenplay, there is a third option: the muzzle brake and a variety of companies are making these for the Mosin Nagant family of rifles.
