    i watch the outdoor channel a lot and lately i have been seeing what looks like some sort of a rubber cone shaped thing on rifle barrels about an inch or so in front of the stock. i have seen it on several different guns on different shows. any ideas on what is and what its purpose is? i suspect it is some some sort of vibration damper, but why?
