    I don't know. But e-mail Farmer, he can tell you, or measure the barrel with a set of calipers.

    Thanks for the effort. Appreciate it (especially when I take out the pair of Mynah's busy building their new home in my garage roof!)

    If I knew you needed the silencer for Mynah control, I would have put in a bigger effort!

    Maybe you can help me with hollow points in 177? LOL

    You don't really need hollopoints for the Mynah's, but Farmer has Crow Magnums and they work well for me in my Diana 31.

    Using Diabolo Baracuda Extra Heavy with devastating effect so far. They seem to be great for the HW80

    If they're accurate and gets the job done, stick with them. Mynah's are not that tough, I've shot many with a Norica Krono using 7,9 grain round nose pellets. A central body shot has always worked so far. (up to 25m)

    Silencers dont realy work on Spring Rifles, waste of money. On a PcP it's a totally different story. On Spring rifles it's the mechanical noise you hear when you shoot and not the pellet. Tried to silence the Hw90, maybe 10% noise reduction, mechanical noise and pellet striking target can still be heard clearly.

    Beg to differ. As the operator of a spring gun it'll always sound noisy 'cause you're so close to the mechanics. You'll notice the difference 20m downrange from a prey/witness's perspective.

    ps:They proved this with decibel meters a few months back in AGW.

    OK, now I have to make a decision and you senior guys need to advise me. Do I spend the money on the Weihrauch silencer or not?

    I would get the barrel screw cut at the muzzle and buy a weihrauch silencer for it. I have homemade silencers on both my springers and they definately make a difference.
