How does Kriss's recoil reduction system work?

bolt-carrier-assembly:

When the weapon fires. there is a force that pushes backwards in line with the bore. Normally this force would cause the weapon to “kick”  which usually causes the muzzle to rise and to move off target. In the Kriss the bolt moves on a cam that moves a counterweight downward, redirecting the recoil force in a way that attempts to counteract the normal rearward kick and muzzle rise.

Social Experiment: Reblog if you are American and know of at least one family member (distant or not) that owns a gun.

Statistically speaking if your family contains more than 3 adults there is a high likelihood you are related to someone who owns a gun because roughly 33% of Americans are firearms owners.

If we were talking about a country like Switzerland that likelihood would be even high since about 50% of their population are gun owners.

No one in my dirrect family owns any firearms(other than myself obviously) but I do have an uncle and a cousin who hunt and own firearms.

I own guns.

My parents own guns.

Both sets of grandparents own guns.

Several of my friends own guns.

Their parents all own guns.
