Steyr.Is there another manufacturer other than Glock that makes a gun with a low bore axis? Thanks...
Low bore axis reduces muzzle flip, which in turn reduces the time between shots. Unless you're a top competition shooter trying to shave the last hundreth of a second of split time, it doesn't matter. For the average folk who can barely place accurate shots every half second, low bore axis makes no difference.Don't think a low bore axis means that much till you have shot some different pistols . P320's not low bore axis but extremely controllable even to glock shooters . Beretta PX4 storm full size - 4.1" barrel is controllable do to the rotating barrel design . CZ's have low bore axis and there copy cat designs .
Of course. The unspoken assumption is "everything else being equal".coconut A low bore axis on its own does not mean and handguns going to be a flatter, quicker shooter . Takes an over all design package to make it work .
Wait, what?Of course. The unspoken assumption is "everything else being equal".
One very easy experiment can be done with gen 4 Glocks. The backstrap with the beaver tail increases the bore axis height, but I have yet to hear anybody complains that it increases his split time.
I have always heard the bore axis defined as the height of the center line of the barrel above the shooter's hand.Wait, what?
I'm a n00b, but that doesn't make any sense. Isn't the bore axis the measurement of the centerline of the barrel, relative to where it sits in the frame/slide?
Ok. So does that mean the latter is true? That adding a beaver tail insert would change the bore axis on of a gen 4 glock? Seems to me that they are flush horizontally?I have always heard the bore axis defined as the height of the center line of the barrel above the shooter's hand.
I'll also note that the HK P7M8 (no longer manufacturred) has the lowest bore axis of any pistol I have ever handled or shot.
If adding the beaver tail insert lowers the top of the shooter's hand (increasing the distance between the top of the shooter's hand and the center line of the bore) then yes, adding the beaver tail insert would change (increase) the bore axis.Ok. So does that mean the latter is true? That adding a beaver tail insert would change the bore axis on of a gen 4 glock? Seems to me that they are flush horizontally?
