Claim: Aussies Develop True Recoiless Rifle

The solution is obvious, at least in principle:

Although details of the new technology remain top secret, the new rifle barrel "splits" dissipating energy in both directions rather than just backwards, as is the case in existing guns.

[The chairman of the company developing the technology] said it was expected the technology could be applied to a range of ballistic weapons, including pistols, rifles, field artillery and naval guns.

"This provides a cost-effective and practical way of eliminating recoil for the first time," Mr Giza said.

Seems like this must be pretty tricky or else they would have elimated recoil by this method long ago.
