Thread: Reflex / Over barrel type moderator for a Blaser R8?

    Reflex / Over barrel type moderator for a Blaser R8?

    Hi Guys

    So I've managed for sometime now with an
    A Tec CCM-4 moderator which only goes over the barrel by 15mm and adds 160mm of length to the barrel. But I really fancy changing to an over barrel / reflex style moderator that brings the overall length down. Weight isn't really the be all and end all, id rather loose the length as it were...

    Whats anybody running on there's? Photo's and experiences would be greatly appreciated so I can get an idea of which way to go.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a PES T12 and T12 scout

    not the lightest but adds about 100mm to the length
    not a massive saving over your now though

    So I found this on Ivythorn's website (Steve I hope you don't mind!)

    It looks out of these options that the BR Reflex T8 and the ASE SL5 comes in as one of the shortest in overall length at 98mm forward extension loosing me 62mm. Anyone run one of these?

    Nice one thanks, they obviously cater for the Blaser spigot / tread?

    I have just acquired an R8 in .270 and have a Hausken mod fitted, very impressed so far.

    Had the ASE Northstar and although heavy,I liked it. Have changed it for an SL5,which is not over barrel,yet extends no farther forward than the Northstar,is lighter,neater and quieter. Moderator design has improved in the last 10 years.

    the Hauskens a good mod. You can have ultra lightweight or a monster for max db reduction. The latest A Tec hertz range looks to have been inspired by it's native rival.

    I just bought 1 for a hornet, and I will be buying another for my 308 in the near future

    I have an A-tec in carbon fibre on my R8
    If a wolf can take down a deer from either flank, does that make him bambidextrous?
