Reduced recoil anti-armor gun

An improved Barrett anti-armor gun that is modified to function from the open bolt with advanced primer ignition, wherein the forward momentum of the recoiling masses at the moment of firing offset a significant portion of the recoil impulse from firing. The modification reduces the recoil energy absorbed by the shooter.
