So over the last 12 months I've shot exactly zero deer, not for the lack of trying I must add. For one reason or another it just hasn't happened. As a result my gear has been a bit neglected as my rifle has come out the cabinet, been carried round for a bit and then put back in again. On occasion I've checked zero but not removed the mod after.
My pals new set up prompted me to have a closer look at my A-tec mod and as I unscrewed the baffles I can see some deterioration around the passage way which appears to get worse getting the closer to the rifle it gets. The last baffle I can't actually unscrew from the threaded barrel mount, which I expect to be worse. Reading various reviews and posts I understand that corrosion can be accelerated if the mod isn't maintained properly and also from 'gas cutting' when a shot is fired. I'm not sure how clear it is in the photo if you haven't seen it before. W
hat do people define as excessive before the baffles should be replaced?
