Thread: Compact Moderator:- a un-expected outcome.

    Compact Moderator:- a un-expected outcome.

    I have had an A-Tec Compact Modular Moderator for sometime, for those that are not familiar with this moderator its construction allows you to remove baffles from the end so you can shorten and lighten the moderator allowing you to taper it exactly to your caliber or given task.

    I brought mine with the view of replacing the old T8 that I was using on my 223. I knew from the start that I would be removing some of the 6 baffles when I used it on my 223. I removed 2 baffles and found that it equaled the performance of the T8 when so configured.

    I now had a moderator that was lighter and more compact than the old one; this combination has successful accounted for 20 or so roe.

    If I am stalking on one of my blocks that hold red as well as roe, I tend to carry my 243WSSM rifle, up until now I have had a Overbarrel A-Tec moderator fitted on this rifle. This moderator weighs 500gms so is pretty light any way.

    I decided to try the CCM on the 243WSSM with the same baffle stack as I was using on the 223, I fully expected it to be a bit loud, as the 243WSSM is quite barky, but thought that I could always fit another baffle on to tame it. Much to my amazement it was equally as quiet to my ear as the bigger A-Tec moderator and the CCM so configured weighed only 385gms. To put that in perspective a T8 weighs 640gm, a Northstar 630gms a Jet-Z 520gms.

    I am not sure why these moderators are not more popular, perhaps they donít get the exposure of the others. They are very adaptable and of course fully strippable the price is not too bad either at £195.

    that was about the same result a university in Germany came up with.
    They tested all moderators that they could get their hands on and the A-tec Modular came out on top. Regardless of weight and size. I have one on a 308 and love it.

    Compact moderator :- unexpected outcome.

    Hi Thar,
    I too have 243WSSM and have tried one or two mods on it. I was thinking of getting a jet-z compact but have been told the new CRB model from Jacksons is better still.
    I rather like the idea of the modualar set up, does it come in one format or do you have a choice?

    Thanks Hightower

    I use one of these mods for load testing - everything from smaller 6.5mm's up to 338LM, it is a very effective moderator and pretty bomb proof - especilly with my 338 loads

    Thanks for posting this topic.

    I have been after one of these since late last year and when I phoned Jackson rifles they said they didn't have them in stock until March this year.

    Can I ask where you got yours from please as I was presuming Jacksons was the only place I could obtain one?
