Thread: Does anyone remove a mod when transporting?

  1. #1

    Does anyone remove a mod when transporting?

    As above. Looking to get a gun case and was wandering who removes the mod when not in use? And why?

    Thanks

    Always remove mod after use and ideally wipe crown with oily rag. Leaving mod on can cause corrosion, I know I've done it!

    For the sake of the bore I keep the moderator and rifle separate until they are going to be used. I screw the moderator on before starting stalking or on the firing point. I remove the moderator on completion of stalking or when I've finished at the firing point.

    Regards

    My routine is to put the moderator on the rifle when I take both out of the cabinet to go stalking, and remove it when I get back after stalking and before cleaning.

    If I changed the routine now and put it in one of the pockets of my gun case I know I'd forget to attach it to the rifle when I got to the stalking ground

    Whatever you do, I think the key is to get into a routine and stick to it.

    I leave them on my rimfires, but have one mod for all centre fire rifles so take it off.

    +1 for usual local stalking,if going on a long trip then put on and off for use.

    Mod comes off when not in use to prevent crown damage (any rifle) - this I would imagine is the single biggest cause for crown damage and therefore accuracy problems
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent
