hmm... looks like it's venting the wrong way...
Could not read the instructions must have jammed it on the wrong way round.
Is it a glorified air splitter?
Is it the wrong way?
When a pistol is magna ported the slots or holes take the gasses away from the shooter
So I have always wondered why on air guns we make the air do a 180 and come out backwards
Shurly stripping the air in the line of travel would be more efective after all the pellet has already
departed for a point unknown (in my case)or on the target for those of us that can shoot
What's the point in stripping air away from a pellet that's long gone?
The reason for making air do a 180, or at least a 90 is it brakes the recoil, allowing follow through to be easier observed.
Rob that is the point,magna porting is done to reduce the felt recoil
and hold the gun on aim by using the energy other wise wasted after
the bullet/pellet has left the barrel by allowing the gasses/air to vent
in the smoothiest way possible.
The way we vent the air causes it to hit a solid stop then rebound on
if the air moves forwards, it imparts a force backwards, which is what we want to counteract
air moving backwards tends not to jar, it will find the path of least resistance... if it has to stop then most likely it will travel forward with the rest. This can be tested for.
