JP Recoil Eliminators

“Radical performance” sums up the JP Recoil Eliminator, which allows for the fastest possible sight recovery and the highest level of recoil reduction possible.

Our patented original JP Recoil Eliminator doesn’t look this way because we think it’s cute; every one of its features has a performance-related purpose. Whether you’re an IPSC practical rifle competitor, a varmint hunter, a member of a special military or police tactical team, or just a plinker, sight recovery is the name of the game. There’s a reason many top professional shooters use our equipment. Ask anyone who is using one of our recoil eliminators—they’ll tell you the effect is nothing short of amazing. Every gun writer who has reviewed this product feels it is the best device of its type that they have tested. One of our customers said that he was able to take a follow-up shot at a prairie dog at about 350 yards with his AR-15 before the first bullet impacted. If you are an IPSC action rifle competitor, that translates into blazing speed of target engagement with outstanding accuracy. On close-range field courses with an AR-type rifle, your splits on double tapping paper targets are only limited by the agility of your trigger finger. The rifle will not leave your point of aim.

The goal with this design was to eliminate as much of the actual recoil impulse as possible, which is the main cause of muzzle flip. In other words, the JP Recoil Eliminator solves the problem not just the symptom. This results in a very neutral feel to the rifle unlike some brakes that depend primarily on the thrust effect. I’ve seen a number of rifle comps that actually produce a “negative muzzle flip,” which is much more difficult to deal with than a rifle with no compensation. Your natural feedback loop can compensate for a positive flip with considerable speed but not a negative flip.

So, how does it work? Normally, when the bullet leaves the muzzle, high pressure gasses acting against the muzzle at that instant become a significant component of perceived recoil. Therefore, reducing recoil and the associated muzzle flip becomes a simple accounting problem. If you can just vent these gasses before the bullet leaves the bore, you will create a noticeable difference. If you harness these gasses by directing them against an opposing baffle surface, a forward thrust is generated which counteracts the recoil impulse of the weapon.

If you work out the numbers, you’ll find that the energy of the gasses from a 20-inch .223 rifle contribute about 70% of the muzzle energy of the projectile. If you do nothing with that force, it is added to the overall recoil impulse. If you can utilize that energy at a decent level of efficiency to subtract from the recoil impulse, you can see the potential. If you watch the now famous video segment of an 11-inch M16, it appears to be recoilless because the muzzle energy of the projectile from the short barrel is nearly equal to the kinetic energy of the high-pressure gas that is being harnessed by the JP Recoil Eliminator.

The JP team for 2003 with Chad Peterson and Kurt Kisch won the ITRC by a large margin.

On larger bore rifles, the effect is equally impressive. You can shoot a .270, 30-06, .300 mag. or larger rifles all day with no recoil fatigue. One of my demo rifles is a .270 bolt gun that I hold up with the butt plate about one inch from the tip of my nose and pull the trigger—the rifle barely taps my nose. You know how punishing it is to fire a high-powered lightweight hunting rifle off a bench rest. You have to crunch your face into the stock and tense your whole upper body to avoid having the scope permanently imbedded in your skull. Imagine how much your accuracy will improve when you can completely relax not having to anticipate that punishing recoil. We have customers who use .300 mags. for varmint rifles and fire hundreds of rounds in a sitting. The remaining recoil impulse is nearly linear so sight recovery is almost instantaneous. For police emergency rifle applications, it is even possible to spot your own hits.

Beyond the substantial performance improvement, the JP Recoil Eliminator offers two additional fringe benefits. First, the gasses from the muzzle are directed up and to the sides so that the shooter is not exposed to the punishing concussion associated with other brakes on the market. Second, due to the shape of the brake, no dust is thrown up when shooting prone off a bipod, and it will not take the paint off your hood when you’re taming those prairie poodles.

At the 2002 D&L International Tactical Rifle Championship, my partner, Chad Peterson, had only a few weeks to prepare. This is a two-man team event, and he was the long-range bolt gun man using one of our custom Remington Senderos in .300 Win Mag. His shooting involved targets from 300 to 1000 yards. With the JP Recoil Eliminator, he was able to fire nearly a thousand rounds of ammunition in load development, zero acquisition, and practice without any physical abuse. Even after firing over 300 rounds in the three days before the event, he was able to shoot the match (another 150 rounds) with no recoil fatigue and turn in a top performance at the match. That would simply not be possible without the JP Recoil Eliminator.
