To demonstrate the advantageous heat dissipation of the MISB barrel in the AR platform, we performed a simple comparative test. To begin the test, we shot 20 rounds of ammunition through the MISB upper receiver using an M16 lower receiver and took temperature readings from all major surfaces. We then fired another 20 rounds and took another set of temperature readings. Then, we let the rifle sit undisturbed between recorded readings at the subsequent two, five, and 10 minute marks.
Once we collected the above mentioned data, we performed the same test on a standard 16” barrel upper with a standard thread-on suppressor. Here are our results in degrees F*
To demonstrate the advantage of the Monolithic Integral Suppressed Barrel’s recoil reduction over standard rifles, our team carried out a simple controlled experiment. Our team selected two MISB rifles and two standard rifles of the same caliber and performed a firing fest.
All four rifles were individually strapped down onto a shooting rest which was then hung from the ceiling. In effect, this arrangement created a pendulum which would be capable of yielding precise measurement. (weights were added and removed from the rest to keep a consistent weight)
To produce results, we fired each of the rifles and then measured the vertical distance each rifle caused the apparatus to travel. With this data, we were able to calculate recoil in ft/lbs by which we could compare our two integral suppressed rifles with the two standard rifles.
Our results are illustrated below:
MISB chambered in .300 Win Mag. 10.1 Ft/Lbs
MISB chambered in .308 Win Mag. 9.1 Ft/Lbs
Unsuppressed .300 Win Mag. 14.5 Ft/Lbs
Unsuppressed .308 Win Mag. 11.9 Ft/Lbs
