After re watching Predator again I have a quick question I would rather not type into google. at 1:03:46 into the movie Arnie and friends are hunkered down waiting for Mr Predator to saunter in and we see the tip of Arnie's weapon

The end of the barrel seems to be plugged but still has a small hole in the centre but looks too small for bullets to come out of, is this a safety thing for prop guns?

As you can imagine typing Tip of Arnie's weapon into google would bring up some NSFW results so I rather not chance it.

Thanks in advance

It does. At a guess, no gun expert, there's an internal tube within the outer barrel. It takes a 5.56mm round which looks about right.

Also at 1:03:46 the hole in the centre is flush with that extra piece around the end of the barrel in the picture above that extra piece protrudes more

Movie screen caps have it

Link below.

Side note picture quality on the Blu-ray seems to vary between scenes quite a bit.

Those 'things' on the end of the barrel are called muzzle brakes. They are mainly used to make the gun more controllable under fire.

Why would the muzzle brake change in between shots?

Slight differences in the prop guns? Dunno
