Recoil Analysis


The ability to quantify recoil (and recoil response) on a gun.

Recoil:  the only downside to shooting.  You can protect your eyes and ears with “eyes and ears.”  You can justify the cost of ammunition, range fees, targets, gear, and your next gun.  But there isn’t much anything you can do about Newton’s third law:

When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body. In other words: the same force pushing the bullet forward is pushing the gun backwards.  Newton’s second law (F=ma) describes how.

Ever since launching the MantisX,  we’ve wanted to quantify recoil.  Not just what it “feels” like, but what it actually is.  We’re all bombarded with claims about how this gun shoots flatter, that pistol has less felt recoil, and your brother’s new semi-automatic has a bore axis that is SO LOW IT’S AMAZING.  We wanted data-driven, objective, quantifiable results.

With the combination of hardware expertise and mind-numbing software algorithms, we’ve created the first recoil analysis system.  MantisX is the first device to accurately and reliably give you data on not just your gun’s recoil, but your response to that recoil.
