In your opinion, what is the best in regards to accuracy? I currently have a silencer on my Steyr and I can't fault the accuracy. A friend of mine has a stripper and says its better than a silencer. What are your findings?
Javz. I believe it all comes down to how well the units are made and fitted to the barrel.
If they are not center to the bore you might as well not use them.It they wobble they will let you down.If the thread is not cut true to the bore you will also have problems.
I have shot with both and both reduce the recoil of the weapon.
I have a very nice adapter that I can change on my S400 to give me the freedom of choice between a muzzle brake and a silencer.
I shot for a year with a silencer and then changed to a break.
They were both as accurate as each other.The fact of shooting a weapon that now barked every time I pulled the trigger was a bit hard to get used to once I changed over to the muzzle brake.
As a matter of fact I had a few shots with it today and cant believe how quiet it is compared to the EV.
I personally like shooting with a silenser fitted.
Don't forget, our pellets reaches its top velocity much quicker in our barrels than a rim or centre fire rifle, as it does not burn powder as it goes along the barrel. By the time the pellet exits the barrel and the wind is stripped off just before that, it leaves the pellet to fly without expanding air directly behind it to cause turbulence that might compromise accuracy butnot speed.
Actually, mine fulfils two purposes, negates muzzle flip, and tunes out any vibration in the barrel. I can't explain the theory behind how it works, just that it does work. Its not fancy or exotic, just does what I intended it to.
Now if I could just shoot straight, I would be in nirvana........
