In The Netherlands the use of silencers is illegal by law. We are currently in discussion with the legislators to see if we can use them as recoil moderator.
Since there is nothing mentioned about the minimal sound (dB) a rifle must make, the standpoint at this moment is "if sound is reduced it is a silencer"
Since in the UK the moderators are common use by now, we are looking for someone who can help us with information.
What I am looking for is:
- What is the max dB reduction for rifles (we talk about calibers with a minimum of 980 joules at 100meter)?
- is there information available about recoil reduction?
- is the recoil reduction better then eg with the use of a muzzle break?
- are there more advantages next to recoil and sound reduction?
Your information is highly appreciated by all hunters in Holland!
For moderator sellers/producers, if we succeed, this is your next market
