    Rate of fire

    As I am in my 11th month wait for my MK760, I was wondering is it possible to slow the rate of fire? I guess the only thing you could do would be get a weaker recoil spring?

    Better to add weight to the bolt.
    Vacations are for people who don't play with flamethrowers :) .

    The Smith 76 is very controllable as it is. I don't think it needs to be slowed down. You may want to shoot it a bit first.

    11 month wait and no approval. That's a LONG time to wait and your still waiting. Out of state transfer?

    I have never shot one, but I suppose you are right.....I have shot an MP40 and that was very smooth, something like 550 RPM....I have a reising and it’s way too fast, I would love an Uzi but on a soldiers budget not gonna happen unless I win the lottery....

    When I was in the market, I thought about drilling out the inside of the bolt (where the recoil rod/spring fit) and press fitting a custom tungsten “pipe” to replace the removed material. You could add several ounces to it that way. The insert would be pretty pricy I imagine though.

    You could do the TASK slow fire conversion if you ran an AR stock.

    Richard at BWE Firearms is working on improvements to the MK 760. Increasing the bolt is one area of work.

    This last year was very hectic. My Daughter graduating from college and then finding her a job and my Son graduating from High School and going off to college. I am hoping 2018 is a lot less hectic so I can get some work done. I am working on stock parts as well as some cool hop up parts for the 76/760.

    I agree with SHURESHOT.

    I'm sure you can work out a load that you will be happy with. I recently shot 1,000 rounds of 115 grain SUBSONIC 9mm out of a sig MPX SBR. NO PROBELMS. I rain out of 147gr Bullets, so I had to figure something out.
