There are many things I like about my LG110; sadly its ear-splitting muzzle report and medicre air consumption aren't among them. Thanks to many of the things that make the design so technically proficient in some areas, the LG really suffers from striker bounce - the graph below shows an audio recording of a firing event taken at both the action (top channel) and muzzle (bottom channel). For reference the rifle tested is my LG110 optimised with a 4mm port and standard 85bar reg pressure. Observing the bottom channel as this most obviously illustrates the issue we see a small initial spike corresponding with air in front of the pellet evacuating the barrel, following this is the muzzle report "proper", followed by a series of 7-9 additional spikes caused by the air released as the striker and valve gear oscillate after the shot. Most guns suffer from this problem to some extent; indeed in designs with long-stroked, heavy strikers this can be detected as a distinctly raspy / farty muzzle report; however in this case the oscillation is at such a high frequency (around 400hz) that our ears perceive it as a single loud blast. Most other guns I've tested give between two and four instances of bounce (other than the electronic Daystates and Steyr H5A which exhibit none!). I reckon killing striker bounce could improve efficiency and shot count by as much as 50% as well as making the guns much easier on the ear.. the big question of course is how to achieve this. There are various approaches to this problem already in production (although in truth most manufacturers seem to ignore it); the big issue in my mind being how to implement a workable / adjustable system without making any irreversible changes to large parts of the rifle - i.e. the striker housing, stock or chassis. Unfortunately Steyr did such a good job in packaging the striker assy that it leaves very little space to add a debounce device... anyone got any ideas they'd like to share?
