M2 Carbine Operation

The muzzle-climb in full auto is very visible if you scroll ahead to exactly 1:39 and play from there.

That was the major flaw of the M-2. 3/4 inch of muzzle-climb translated to over six feet high at 100 yards.

Stoner addressed that by dropping the barrel of the A-10/A-15 so it was in-line with the buttstock/shoulder interface.

The rest of us deal with muzzle climb by actually aiming our shots; even a 1/4 second pause between trigger pulls is enough to bring the weapon back on target.
