Thread: Moderator choice?

    Moderator choice?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm looking at investing in a 7mm-08 but wondered about mod choice or if I should even bother with one? Is there a mod out there that is both lite and effective with noise suppression? Some of the mods I've seen so far are very heavy and seem to ruin the balance of the rifle.

    Has anyone got any advice?

    Thanks,

    Paul.

    Have a gander at the Hardy Gen IV imported by Riflecraft.

    £300 but weighs in at just 290g. Not the quietest, but very light and over the barrel so the weight isn't all hanging off the front end...

    Cheers

    They're all heavy though some more than others!

    Reflex mods balance a bit better but are heavy, end cans are all pretty heavy but you don't have the hassle of getting it fitted to your gun.

    check out the ASE SL5, the MAE T12, and the "one less Charlie" range of moderators

    Just got a Jet Z Compact and very pleased, as small and fairly light plus does a good job on the sound suppression. Much better than the Northstar 3S that I had before.

    AU-SL5 is my current favourite, but I haven't laid my hands on a One Less Charlie one yet. Regards JCS

    I just read the report on the Gunmart website. It sounds like a good light weight choice and has a brake built in too

    It's 45% of the weight of my T8, which is why I bought it. There are others that are quieter, but I spend more time carrying the damn thing than actually shooting it, so the weight saving was more important to me.

    I got mine via Emmett & Stone in Marlow, so try your RFD or go straight to Riflecraft...

    Cheers

    Plus another for the Hardy Gen IV
    Nice and light and doesn't upset the balance. It's a bit louder than my Northstar or Jet-z but not that much to bother worrying about, the muzzle brake and lightness far outweigh the hardly discernible extra couple of decibels.

    Great, thanks everyone. I'll definately be ordering a Hardy Gen IV then
