Abstract : The patent relates to a shock absorber for absorbing shocks incident to high velocity impact including a cylindrical housing having a tapered bore formed axially therein. A metering rod is slidably positioned longitudinally within the housing having end portions extending therebeyond with one of the end portions connectable to the movable object. An enlarged piston is formed on that portion of the metering rod which is contained within the housing bore. A high viscosity fluid medium, such as Duxseal, fills the chamber defined by the housing bore.
